This thrilling story epitomizes the difficulties Mr Oteh encountered as he walked through the forest of the death in a gospel venture.
It was in the heart of August when the Christian Youth Association of the Divine Church of God decided to go and evangelize in Munteng village. The association had a mission of spreading the gospel through; songs, plays and preaching.
Bache Paul Ihimbru was the head of the association. The group had visited so many neighbouring villages in the Esimbi Sub Division. Bache and his colleagues agreed that they should visit his village in summer during the long vacation but the trip was scheduled in the wrong month which was at the peak of the rainy season. A letter was addressed to the local chief to inform the villagers of their coming.
The group took off at 3: 00 pm in a Land Rover from the Divisional headquarters. Two hours later, the Land Rover got stuck in mud and Oteh was sent to trek and inform the villagers that the team was coming behind.
He entered the forest of the death and not long, night fell accompanied by heavy rains and shooting hailstones. There was lightning and heavy thundering in the forest. The road was stony, muddy and slippery and Oteh had no torch but he was supposed to reach Munteng village. Did he succeed with all the numerous obstacles in the black night in the heart of the thick evil forest?
