Mrs. Gladys Namle Noye Laid To Rest

The remains of Mrs. Gladys Namle Noye, the late wife of Pastor Ben Noye, Centre Manager for the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC) and Resident Minister of Ghana Flag Worship Center in the Downtown-Ofaakor Area of The Church of Pentecost was laid to rest on Saturday, February 12, 2022.

Mrs. Gladys Namle Noye, 57, whose death occurred on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 at the Pentecost Hospital, Madina, after a short illness lived a life full of admiration.

The earnest funeral ceremony was officiated by the General Secretary of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, with support from some Executive Council Members of the Church and Apostle Dr. Benjamin Ali, Downtown-Ofaakor Area Head.

Delivering a sermon at the well-attended burial and memorial service held in her honour at Kasoa Amanfrom School Park, Pastor Kwasi Afoakwa-Duah, Galilea District Minister of the church, said that Jesus is the solid foundation of the life of the believer.

With scripture references from John 11:25; Isaiah 43:1-2, Pastor Afoakwa-Duah revealed that since the physical and spiritual life of Christians are rooted in Jesus, it is important to be appreciative of life, which he described as a “gift” that must be used graciously. “You can only get life in Jesus when you believe in him. Even when you die, you will live again,” he stated, adding, “In Jesus, we do not pass away, but pass on to eternal life. Therefore, our sister Gladys Namle Noye has passed on to a better land.”

Survived by a husband and three children, Mrs. Gladys Noye, together with her husband, Pastor Ben Noye, accepted the call to join full-time ministry of The Church of Pentecost in 2003. They served in the following stations: Prang, Essarkyir, Takoradi, Koforidua, Merry Villas (Accra), Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC) as the Centre Manager, as well as the Resident Minister for the Ghana Flag Worship Centre in the Downtown-Ofaakor Area, before her call into eternity.

A tribute by the General Council of The Church of Pentecost read by Prophet David Kankam Beditor (Ashaiman Area Head and Coordinator of the Greater Accra Coordinating Committee) described Mrs. Gladys Noye as “a woman of outstanding qualities.” It added that her contributions to the church and to the Lord were admirable, saying, “It was not surprising to note that she won the Best Teacher awards at various levels due to her zeal and dedication to her profession and the things of God.”

According to the General Council, the late Mrs. Noye’s excellent life served as a role model for both children and adults, both inside and outside the church. “Certainly, she was a proud ambassador of the church in the possessing the nations’ agenda, as she was able to use her godly character and values to brighten her sphere of life and thus, turned many to Christ,” it added.

Her uprightness, submissiveness, selflessness, devotion, hospitality, hard work, among others, aided in bringing stability to her home, as recalled by her husband and children.

Mrs. Gladys Namle Noye was born on Tuesday, February 16, 1965, at Agogo, Ashanti-Akim, to the late Seth Odonkor Nyavor and Lily Koryoe Nyavor, both from Odumase-Krobo. She was the third of six children.
Her marriage to Pastor Ben Noye on October 31, 1998, transitioned her to The Church of Pentecost, where she underwent baptism by immersion at Abelenkpe District after her previous baptism in the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, at Agogo on April 18, 1965.
