Story has it that Susuana was born a miracle child in Dorkortsowa, Accra, Ghana. Her parents were forced to move to avoid the embarrassing crowd who daily flocked to their home curious, about the hairy new born whose photograph only showed a bundle of hair in the shape of a baby. At the age of two and a half she was using alarming visible spiritual gifts of visions and prophecy which have remained with her until today.
Barren for the first ten years of her marriage, in 1965 she vowed to give her entire life to Jesus, if God blessed her with a child. In 1966, her prayer was answered and her vocation was revitalized. Her dynamic ministry and faith was challenged in 1974 when she was arrested by the Military Government, for preaching the gospel and casting out devils. She served a twenty-four day sentence, during which God commanded her in a vision to preach the gospel in all parts of the world; she asked God how this could be done with her background of illiteracy. God replied ‘ I will be with you as I have always done.’
