About Our Visionary
My name is Rosemary Saffold. I have been married to Noah Saffold for 47 years. God has blessed us with a beautiful family - three daughters, one son, six grandchildren and two great granddaughters.
I have lived in Seaside, California for 45 years. During those years, I have been a member of Victory Temple and Greater Victory Temple Church.
I am the Visionary for the Women of Destiny-Igniters of the Fire Ministries, Inc. (WODIOTF). It is an outreach ministry committed to equip, encourage and empower men, women, boys and girls to walk in God's purpose and fulfill their destiny.
I Believe in the Mighty Power of Prayer:
At a young age, I accepted the Lord as my personal savior. I knew Him as a way maker, a heart fixer and a mind regulator. I knew Him as a doctor in the sick room and a lawyer in the courtroom. I knew Him as a bridge over troubled waters, but I did not know Him in His power of death and resurrection.
June 2001, I was visiting a church in Columbus, Ohio. The Pastor of that church asked, "And what do you want from the Lord”? My reply was, "I want to know Jesus, I mean really for real know Him". The Pastor’s reply was "Do you know what you are asking"? I immediately said "yes". He further asked, "Are you willing to die"? I answered "Yes I am willing to die or do whatever it takes to really know God as I have never known Him before". The Pastor prayed for me and I was slain in the spirit by the anointing of the Holy Ghost. Philippians 3:10 says, "That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His SUFFERINGS, being made conformable unto His death;" That is one of my testimonies. My God Reigns!
November 16, 2001, five months after my encounter with the Lord in Ohio (five is the number of grace) I was asked to speak at a women’s conference at Wells of Living Waters Church in Stockton, California. Suddenly, darkness rolled into the room from the rear of the church. I asked the Pastor’s wife (Linda Parker) for a sip of water. I looked again into the audience, this time everything was black. The last words I remembered saying was, "The devil is a liar, Pray, Pray, Pray". (Pray one for the Father, Pray two for the Son and Pray three for the Holy Ghost). I felt my life forces leave my body as I inhaled in this world and exhaled into eternity. I knew this was the last breath I would take. Nevertheless, Praise is unto God I was immediately in the presence of the Lord.
"We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be ABSENT FROM THE BODY, and to be present with the Lord. (II Corinthians 5: 8). I did not have time to panic, to ask for forgiveness, to get things right or repent. I was in a place of peace and pure bliss. A peace that surpasses all understanding. My spirit was in a resting place, I had fallen asleep in the arms of Jesus. The Bible says, “Our friend Lazarus is fallen ASLEEP; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep". (John 11:11) Thank God, I was in Paradise. Hallelujah! Another testimony that My God Reigns!
My niece was sitting on the front pew of the Church. She moved quickly, caught my body and laid it in a chair. I was pronounced dead, however the WODIOTF, Pastor and Sister Parker did not give up on me, they bombarded heaven with prayers and shook the portals of hell. They prayed relentlessly in faith, they knew God would bring me back from the dead.
The enemy had counted me out, but the Lord said "Go ahead, take your best shot, take her out, but I will bring her back for my Glory"! Hallelujah to the Lamb of God! It was through the faith and perseverance of the prayers of the Women of Destiny-Igniters of the Fire and other saints that God brought me back from the dead. I now have a New life and a New beginning Hallelujah! My God Reigns! To God Be the Glory for the Things He has done! He Reigns. I know without a doubt, “There is nothing too hard for my God to do!” On November 16, 2001, I experienced the Mighty Power of God through death and resurrection. God answered my prayers and granted my request.
Since my awesome experience with death, God has opened doors in various cities and states for the Women of Destiny-Igniters of the Fire Ministries to travel and share this testimony of God's Amazing Grace. We have experienced the mighty hand of God as He moved in a miraculous way in healing the sick, saving souls, delivering souls from demonic spirits and setting the captives free.
If you are faced with a situation that seems impossible, hopeless or dead, I would like to recommend you to someone who can change the course of your life. Has the enemy told you to give up because nothing good is coming out of this bad situation?
God brought me back from the dead to tell you, "Hold on, do not give up, help is on the way". God can take that dead situation and resurrect it back to life. He did it for me and I know he can do it for you. Those dry bones will live again. I speak it; I declare and decree it by the power and the Authority of the Almighty God who lives inside of me. He loves you and he wants the very best for you and your family.
I know a man from Galilee who is in the healing business. Jesus Christ of Nazareth will heal your body and He will heal your sin sick soul. Whatever you need, God has it. AMEN! TRUST IN THE LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Every morning, since God granted me new life, I quote Psalm 118: 24, “This is the day which the Lord hath made I will rejoice and be glad in it.” Even my email address, “Alive4HisGlory” is a testament to God's Amazing Love.
I Timothy 1:12, speaks the sentiments of my heart, “I know whom I have believed and I am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that day”. My prayers are with you and your family. If you were encouraged by my testimony and would like to hear it in its entirety, or if you are in need of prayer feel free to email me at [email protected] Be Blessed and fruitful in the Lord. I love you with the Love of Christ. Remember we serve A BIG God and Forever "Our God Reigns!
I Live Only For Him,
