Pastor Nomthi Rosemary Odukoya, the wife of the founder of the Fountain of Life Bible Church, Taiwo Odukoya, is dead.
Nomthi reportedly died of cancer. According to a statement on the Church’s official Twitter page, she battled the deadly disease for two years.
“With deep regret and gratitude to God, we have to announce the passing of our Senior Pastor’s wife, Pastor Nomthi Odukoya. She battled cancer for the better part of 2 years, she stood on the Word of God, and she fought.
We loved her with all our heart, but who are we to fight with the will of God. The truth is, at one point in our lives, we all will have to say goodbye. So for now, till we meet again in glory, Goodbye Pastor Nomthi,” the statement added.
Pastor Taiwo lost his first wife, Pastor Bimbo Odukoya on December 10, 2005, as a result of the Sosoliso plane crash. In 2010, Pastor Odukoya married Rosemary Nomthi, a South African.
