About Us

God often calls ordinary people who love Him to do His work on earth. The Revive Our Hearts team consists of such a group of women who devote their time and talents on a voluntary basis to spread the message of personal revival and biblical womanhood.

She firmly believes that the message of biblical womanhood and personal revival can help women with the many challenges in life and can lead them to freedom, fulness and fruitfulness. Therefore she aims to spread this message in various ways, especially in discipling groups. Marisa embraces her calling of being a wife and a mother.

Wilmie van Tonder

ROH Ambassador

Wilmie has been married to Bernard since 2006 and is a stay-at-home mom of two in the picturesque town of George on the Southern Coast of South Africa. She was introduced to the teaching of Revive Our Hearts four years ago and since that day it is her greatest joy to share with others how God has changed her heart through the Word and discipleship on biblical womanhood and revival. Her passion is to gather groups of women, young and old, in her home and share about God’s redemptive power and the importance of discipleship among women. She also enjoys coffee, photography, journalling, music in all its forms, and the pursuit of creating a life-giving home for family and friends.

Marcia Loots


I obtained a BSc Physiology at the University of Pretoria, with the possible aim on research or education, but after graduating I ventured on another path. For the next 15 years I fulfilled another passion of mine by working with animals at a local Veterinarian Practice and I discovered a second spiritual home in Mozambique, where we supported local congregations, helped plant new churches, and shared the gospel in fun filled ways with the local children. I am married to Dawie and we have 3 beautiful little girls whom have kept me very busy for the last 6 years. I recently joined ROH South Africa as Office Administrator and I am excited to see how this ministry is going to grow and reach the hearts of many women, bringing us all ever closer to the heart of God and His will for our lives.
