Word Of Life Ministries International also known as (WOLMI) was born in the hearts of both Pastor Noel and Rirhandzu Sithole on the 18th January 1998, in their first residence; flat 612 Parkvilla, Sunnyside, Pretoria, South Africa. WOLMI’s first service was held in their own flat and was attended by only one person who is sadly late. This never served as a discouragement in the heart and mind of the two founding Pastors.
Soon thereafter, word of mouth spread out like veldfire about the newly started church and as a result, the next Sunday service was moved to the TV room of the flat. Around eight people attended. Pastor Noel and Rirhandzu knew God had called and destined them for something better, greater and powerful. They believed in Job 8:7 which says; “Thou thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase”. They believed in the saying that says it is only the grave that starts from the top but everything else starts from bottom up.
From 2000- 2007 WOLMI embarked on prayer and fasting specifically for the land. In mid 2000 a visiting speaker who did not know anything about such prayer prophesied about the land. The gist of prophecy was “I see you having your own farm more in the North, more in the North. People shall come. They shall be beat.There shall be sound of royalty.
After moving from one place to another (about 4 places)it took almost 7 years for the church to experience the fulfillment of that prophecy. In September 2006 WOLMI took a gigantic step of faith to acquire about 9ha in Pretoria and the process was completed in August 2007.In 2007 the church moved from town to the farm. In 2009 an alpine marquee which was bought in 2007 was erected following approval by the City of Tshwane.
It’s against this background that we extended our invitation to you and family to come celebrate God’s faithfulness with us on our 12th Year Anniversary, and Land and Marquee Dedication.
Over a number of years they enjoyed witnessing God’s grace over WOLMI, which grew from faith to faith, grace to grace and last but not least strength to strength.
Sometimes before God could promote you He often rotates you, says Pastor Noel. So was the case with WOLMI.
In October 2005 God instructed Pastor Noel to go out and look for a land of his own. At this time, the church was in arrears of R33 000 towards the landlord.
Sometimes God does not make sense. In the Bible Jesus bwould solve one problem in different ways. For example, to one blind man Jesus would spit on the ground,pur mortar on the eyes and instruct the blind to to go wash at the pool of Siloam.To another Jesus would say what wilt thou that I should do unto thee? This does not make sense at all. Naaman was asked to go wash at river Jordan to be healed of his leprosy.This does not make sense.So Pastor Noel in obedience to God’s voice moved in faith and start looking for a land. Beloved, this is where it all begun. It was in Arcadia Center where WOLMI started to embark on a vigorous fundraising project for the acquisition of a land parcel.
In an attempt to buy land for the church the pastor entertained several offers to purchase. However, the church could not raise the required amounts.As a result the land owner sold it to another person without informing the pastor. Pastor Noel described the situation as “one that tested his faith”.
WOLMI comes a long way. The road to the present setting was characterized by mountains, valleys and potholes.Purpose cannot be fulfilled without pits and potholes on the way.There were always false starts. What can overcome faith? Nothing. Faith overcomes all obstacles in life.
At present, Word Of Life Ministries International fellowships at its own property situated here at plot 27 Waterval, Pretoria.(Insert of Marquee, house and fields).

In the month of June The municipality , after waiting for 4 years finally approved the church to build its dream church structure.
Employment Dear Pastor Noel and Rirhandzu We would like to give thanks to God and thanking you for your sacrifice in praying for us long before we even submitted our prayer requests. God has blessed my wife with an IT Assistant employment at Tshwane South FET College after we sowed a seed and believe God for her employment. We thank God so much because after an interview for this post she was discouraged simply because there were no IT people on the interview panel and the questions asked were irrelevant to the post advertised. But we choose to believe God’s word and agreed & took communion as a family that God’s favor will bring recognition even in situations where we are least likely to succeed and that are exactly what happened in her case. God has provided employment opportunity for my wife sooner than anticipated. To God be the glory!!!Donald & Tebogo Kubayi, Silverton, South Africa: Visualiser of Interiors
Property breakthrough Greetings Ps.Noel. We have a testimony that we would like to share with you and the congregation. 2012 was declared a year of Suddenly and Immediately but for us it was like a dream. We had so many challenges. In 2012 the property that we were renting put on the market. And we were just waiting for the agency to tell us that someone bought it as people were coming to view it time and again. About six people viewed the property and applied but couldn't get the bank to finance them. As tenants the agency then told us to apply. We told him that four major banks in South Africa declined our application so many times for another property. Then he said we must give it one last try and so we then applied for this property. Again three banks declined our application later. This did not move us as we had now developed faith to stand against all odds. Pastor you teach faith and that you said we must not allow situations stop us from pursuing God’s plans for our life. The we got an email saying one of the banks, Standard Bank is giving us 100% home loan which also shocked the Agent because according to him the bank does not give 100% so everything was done now we own the property God has done the impossible for his word says nothing is impossible with him.Sherley and Sydwel Makhubele, Pretoria, South Africa
Property from a shack to a Mansion. Greetings to you Pastor Noel and Rirhandzu. I am Dorah Moore from Garankuwa township. Ever since I was born I never lived in a decent house. When I heard our Pastors declarations for 2012 I just said within I will have my house. Yes it so happen that by God’s grace I begun to build a house. Church members truly helped me with planning from the start to the end. Praise God I now live in a big house. What a faithful God! If we trust Him he will do things we never imagined. God moved me from grass to glory, from low to up. To God be the glory!Ms. Dorah Moore, Garakuwa, Pretoria South Africa
Financial breakthrough In 2012 things were difficult for me and my husband financially. We were living/surviving on overdrafts that's how terrible it was but kept believing God for a financial breakthrough. Then on the 31 December 2012 my prayer was "Lord the Egyptians I saw in 2012 I don’t want to see them in 2013" and I am happy to say on the 3rd January a financial breakthrough came our way He is a faithful God I wouldn’t choose another God for I know I am where I am because of himSherley and Sydwel Makhubele, Pretoria, South Africa
