Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, the senior pastor of the Fountain of Life Church in Lagos, has taken to his social media page to mourn the demise of his wife, Nomthi, who died on November 9 following a 2-year battle with cancer.
In a post shared on his Instagram page, Pastor Odukoya said Nomthi gave him 11 beautiful years of marriage and two boys.
With deep regret and gratitude to God, I have to announce the passing of my wife, Pastor Nomthi Odukoya.
She battled cancer for the better part of two years, she stood on the Word of God, and she fought.
She gave me 11 beautiful years of marriage and two wonderful boys, who I know will be very significant in life.
I loved her with all my heart, but who am I 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 Nomthi”
