In 2010, after going through a challenging time in her life, God called Marita Orevi Tornes to be a minister of the word of God. She is a trained high school teacher, but she started to minister to different churches alongside with her occupation. She traveled preaching in different churches in her origin country Sweden. God gave her a specific passion to raise up women in service for the Lord and she was invited to different women’s conferences.
In 2013 God called her to go to Africa together with a mission organization where she got involved with street evangelism and intercession. In 2017 she was invited as a speaker for the first time at a women’s conference in Uganda. In January 2018 she went into full time ministry. After that God has continued to open doors for her to speak in Scandinavia and different countries in Africa such as Congo, Kenya and Uganda. Her ministry is marked by a prophetic and healing anointing.
In 2020 Marita founded Eagles Ministry together with her Norwegian husband Truls Tornes. He is an entrepreneur who works hard behind the scene. The main focus of this ministry is to present Jesus to the world and to train and equip the body of Christ through courses, conferences and media. It is time to fly higher and rise like the eagles God has called the Christians to be. The word of God says that the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few (Matt 9:37). It is time to call for the workers to bring in the harvest.
Marita and Truls also have a big heart for the poor and broken and their passion is to bring healing and restoration to the people of Africa. Education for children and family support is on their agenda, which also is one of the main purposes of Eagles Ministry.
