Founded by Apostle Dr. Ezekiel H. Guti: Over 50 Years and Moving On

Apostles Update Week 18

Dear Friends  
2020 the year we celebrate the Diamond Jubilee, 60 years of advancing the Kingdom of God. Despite the lockdown and ban on church services in church buildings, the anniversary celebrations were not in lockdown. In the comfort of our homes we received the messages that were broadcast live from Thursday to Saturday. Sunday was the big day many had been waiting for, to hear from our mother Apostle Dr. Eunor Guti. She explained the process to purpose showing the process Baba had to go through for the purpose of this church and the need to negotiate with our faith. What an awesome time we had in the presence of God as she spoke to us. Ezekiel TV in the homes (Africa), Facebook, Youtube, Ezekiel Radio and the website were buzzing busy transmitting the word of God to a global audience. As Baba said in 2010, "the method may change but the message will remain the same". The word and celebrations were done online and people still experienced, joy, encouragement, healing, deliverance and salvation.
A family testified of how one of them a "frontliner" got sick and after being healed, the spouse who also got sick was still struggling with chest pains and shortness of breath but on Sunday as Apostle Dr. Eunor said you have to negotiate with your faith for God to heal you, immediately all the pain disappeared and they even went to jog in the park to prove there was no more pain in the chest and no more shortness of breath. Glory to God in the Highest.
We thank God for such a great week of celebration as we joined together with the Forward in Faith family to celebrate our 60th anniversary and birthday of our father Apostle Ezekiel Guti as we say ," long live the prophet of God our father, the Lord grant him more years" amen. The believers were so excited as the pastoral team took turns to read the Book of History. They praised God for the grace of God upon our ministry seeing how it has come this far and yet still growing. Many, especially new believers were amazed at how much God has kept his servant 97 years of age and 72 years of preaching, indeed they confessed that FIF is a true church of God. God continues to minister with healings through calls, we are witnessing great growth in the believers. We thank God for a powerful word delivered by our mother Apostle Eunor Guti. It left the believers more bonded to their church and gave them an insight on who really is our father. One man confessed that soon after the restrictions have been lifted he wants to come and attend our church. Continue to pray for us that God may continue to keep His church.
We want to say Happy Diamond Jubilee to ZAOGA Forward in Faith and Happy Birthday to our father Apostle Ezekiel Guti celebrating 97 years of God‘s grace. We thank God for the Week of Anniversary celebrations where we introduced our morning devotion prayers and most believers are getting connected with this morning prayer. We started our celebrations on Thursday together with the live Broadcast where the History of ZAOGA FIF was being taught. The majority of our believers were able to watch all the live broadcast services. They were very happy to hear the History of the Church and of our father, this made them not to miss any service. After every message people would thank God on the church group. What a blessed Sunday we had with our mother Apostle Dr Eunor Guti on live broadcast. People were moved when our mother was talking about where our father went through for the birth of the church. One lady testified that her eyes were filled with tears after hearing the process baba went through. More testimonies were said after the Word. We want to thank God and his Servant and Apostle Ezekiel Guti for remembering our Nation with the true gospel of Jesus Christ.
Blessed be the God of our father Apostle Prof Ezekiel H Guti, who has done such wonderful works. This week we celebrated not only 60 years of the birth ZAOGA FIFMI but the blessings of having our Founding father with us at 97 years. On Tuesday all ladies joined the Ladies prayer online meeting with Overseer Abby Chaima as our guest speaker. As we celebrated here, we had three nights of reading the History Book, we were taught and refreshed with the foundation and principles of our faith. On Friday evening we had a powerful Speaker Dr GM, one of the founding members of our ministry right here in St. Kitts. We were so blessed as we are continually encouraged and reminded to stay in the Word of God and prayer, strengthening our relationship in and with God. Our Sunday service was so refreshing. We had members joining in and attending the powerful online service with our mother and Apostle Dr Eunor Guti. Our service afterward saw members testifying of the healing and restoring power of God. We give God all the praise and honour and glory for such and powerful week in the ministry and our lives.
What a Spiritually rich and powerful week it’s been in Nevis. Our Prayer Groups met nightly and from Wednesday we read the ZAOGA FIF History Book daily in our meetings. It was great listening to how it all started and understood more clearly the leadership directives of our father, Dr Ezekiel Guti, and how the church has grown. We thank God for how FIFMI has developed its Family churches around the world. We thank God for the Pastors who have contributed with Powerful Deliveries such as Pastor Shepherd who shared with us on Friday, "The Secrets of This Ministry" Sunday’s service we were so honoured to have Mama Guti delivering the Word for us as she recounted the History of ZAOGA FIFMI and explained how Apostle E.H Guti developed this worldwide Ministry. Members are sharing their testimonies:   
  • A believer shared that before church started my pressure was very high and I was a bit dizzy, but when the Pastor started to pray there was no more dizziness. 
  • A believer received healing on one of their legs.
  • Another testified that when Apostle Eunor was teaching the history of FIF they understand more the Man of God
  • One person rededicated their life to Christ
  • Someone who had stomach problems got healed.
This Friday and Saturday FIFMI Jamaica celebrated Apostle's E H Guti 97th birthday and our 60th Diamond Jubilee anniversary, with 2 powerful nights of service. Each night had about 25 persons joining the service via Zoom. On Friday, Pastor Molly Vhareta shared the word followed by Evangelist Michael Vhareta on Saturday. After hearing the message, a member shared how the father of her children gave his life to the Lord Jesus Christ. During the celebration, we read from our history book, and members shared how much their lives have changed since they came to FIFMI.
  •  Our Sis Karen, from the USA, who only joined our online services a few weeks ago, testified that she had a lump in her neck and was experiencing great pain. But she felt a fire in her neck as the church prayed for her. She said the pain stopped immediately. Also, her grandson who cannot talk or walk, was also prayed for and when she called to speak to him, for the first time he spoke back to her. We give glory to God who still heals and delivers.
  •  Another member, 73 years old, met our Overseers BF & Esither Mhundwa on a bus. They told her about FIFMI and the founder Baba Guti. She came to service the next Sunday and has not stopped coming since. She is now a Deaconess in our church and uses every chance she gets to tell others about Baba Guti and the church that changed her life.
The weekend celebrations were capped off with the International Sunday Service, culminated by our mother Apostle Eunor Guti sharing about the church's origin. What a blessed church we belong to! And with this, we continue to join and celebrate with FIFMI worldwide, in giving God thanks for the treasure that is our father Ezekiel Guti. May God grant him many more year
We are grateful of the Lord God of our father Apostle Ezekiel Guti for the grace to harness the virtual church services during this season of lock down. We managed to hold an exceptional leadership conference online tagged "No spiritual dryness" from the 20th to the 25th of April 2020. The conference saw the attendance spilling over the provincial, national and continental boundaries. Our team of speakers on its own drew crowds and we have received testimonies from all over of how the conference impacted the lives of viewers and listeners. Our leaders benefited and saints were motivated. The sessions were run concurrently on Facebook and on Zoom. Recorded audio clips were then sent on different WhatsApp platforms. We are witnessing the fruits of the conference teachings. We have a Provincial Morning Watch prayer which is running seven days of the week at 4-5am on Zoom and has helped us to counter the spiritual dryness and united us. Occasionally we receive powerful teachings and exhortation from the word of God during the morning prayer. We give glory to God. 
The week began with saints gathering at the main church cell with focus on the reading of the History of ZAOGA FIF. It was really a moment of great revival as saints reflected how they came to FIF and how the seed of FIF has impacted their lives. Indeed the God of our father Apostle Ezekiel Guti is no respecter of persons or nationalities and is not restricted by boundaries. Here are some of the Anniversary Celebration testimonies:
  • One elderly lady testified how the God of our father miraculously saved her from fiery bullets passing over her head during the last crisis. She saw the hand of the God of Ezekiel and told the saints that she will never leave this church.
  • Several youths testified that since they came to FIF, the teachings of FIF have saved them from youthful delinquency behaviors like alcoholism, a serious stronghold among youths in our nation.
  • A man who mysteriously lost his certificate was prayed for in FIF and miraculously recovered it within a week.
  • After being taught about prayer in FIF a young man sought God for a job. He got a job and was instantly promoted into foremanship.  
Saturday afternoon saw the church distribute gospel tracts to open markets, bus ranks, open shops and households. This also gave us the opportunity to make the community know more about FIF. As we concluded the reading of the History of ZAOGA FIF one man who was visiting our church for 4 weeks finally gave his life to Christ. Hallelujah! We are so thankful to the God of Ezekiel that even in the midst of the corona virus scare the anniversary and teaching from our mother gave the church hope and faith for divine protection. Continue to pray for our nation so that we continue to have many young Ezekiel’s in this great nation. Happy birthday FIF. Long live our father Professor E. H. Guti.
We would like to thank the God of our father, for His grace as our father Apostle E. H Guti celebrated his 97th Birthday and the 60th Jubilee Anniversary for ZAOGA Forward in Faith. Great things are continuing to happen in Scotland, and we are thankful to the God of our father Apostle E.H Guti and His favour over our Province. We joined in our numbers for the International services, and local anniversary celebrations and there are testimonies from the leaders, saints and youth that they have been encouraged, delivered, and revived through the rich teachings and testimonial preaching that showed how the God of our father has been working miracles in ZAOGA FIFMI. The local online services from Monday the 4th – Saturday the 9th of May, were cemented by the reading of the book of history and powerful teachings from various dynamic speakers. We also joined the International Sunday service to watch our Mother, Apostle Eunor Guti, as she taught the church and empowered the Nations, to trust God’s process of His purpose over our lives. We are grateful that there was one soul that came to Christ straight after the Sunday international service. We are thankful to the God of our father that during this lockdown we are experiencing the great joy of the Lord contrary to the fear that is expected at this time. Many people are attending services and there is hunger and desire to go deeper in the things of God.

A reminder of part of the letter written to us in April:
We have prayed in the ten days and that is the most important prayer of the year. There is nothing new that the Lord has not warned us. Do not fear what is happening. Obey what you are told to do by your government because that is right. Above all I urge u to spend more time reading the word of God and developing a personal relationship with Him. Finally, I say again FEAR NOT, TRUST IN THE LORD. TRUST THE LORD. God bless you.
We love you and are praying for you,
Drs Steve & La-Verne Simukai
