Apostles Update Week 33

Dear Friends  
 
Greetings from the Holy land. 266 pilgrims entered the Holy Land today after touring Egypt and going through the Exodus like the children of Israel. Oh what favor it is. The bible is really coming alive.
 
TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO
Our midweek services were successful regardless of the Caribbean Festival
(CARIFESTA) show that has been running for the past two weeks every day, drawing a lot of people every night. This also affected our Sunday service attendance but we still had a sizeable number of 16 people attended. We have also found a bigger place of worship which we will start to use this week. As it’s bigger it means we need more chairs which we are believing the God of our father for his provision. There has been some very consistent members who are really committed that they don’t want to miss the bible studies and prayers. One brother had to tell his boss at work that if they cannot release him on the church days he will leave the job to concentrate on the teachings of the kingdom of God. We also need prayers as we are going back to have service or another assembly in Belmont through the advice of our father and mother. That means this week we start to have two assemblies both places are key areas to our father from the time he came to this nation.
 
GUYANA
On Tuesday 9 ladies met for prayer. We thank the Lord we managed to launch two home cell groups on Wednesday where Group 1 had 9 adults 5 children, a total 14 and Group 2 were 8 adults, 1 visitor 11 children total 20. We are praying for more houses to split the groups even further. All other services for the rest of the week went well. 
Sunday had 22 Adults, 1 visitor, 14 Children and Total 37 people in attendance.
3 children were dedicated to the Lord and we had a wonderful teaching by Pastor Truth.
Testimonies:
  • A lady who had difficulties in praying after Pastors teaching and deliverance had a very powerful time of worship and warfare that she overcame a trap the devil had set for her and family strongly.
 
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
We thank the God of Ezekiel for empowering the Pedro Brand 25 Assembly in Dominican Republic to complete the out door arena in front of the FIFMI church. It was a huge construction, but the hand of God was truly with us to complete it at a third of the normal price. This large space will be used as an overflow area and for outreaches. The Lord is also expanding our territories to win souls for the kingdom, by increasing our presence in the community as a church that gives. After our Sunday service, which was attended by 34 adults and 12 children, we had a Sight for Jesus campaign. People were given the opportunity to have their eyes tested for just $1US by qualified doctors. This service helped many in Pedro Brand that can not afford the very costly consultations. Their prescriptions were also highly discounted. We are also reaching out to the business community, where the pastors have been invited to share the word and pray for all meetings attended by ASOEMCOPEB Business group in Pedro Brand. Thank you for your prayers and we believe God that He will empower us also to complete and purchase the center we are currently renting, very soon.
 
 
BARBADOS
Indeed we had an awesome week in Barbados. Tuesday, the Leaders had a powerful night of prayer. Wednesday, as usual the home cell bible study groups continue to meet at the various designations and the believers are loving it. Friday night was indeed a night to remember. The glory of God filled the Sanctuary during our prayer and worship session. Believers received their healing and deliverance. Deacon Sylvia delivered a powerful word that blessed and encouraged the believers. Sunday was just so amazing. The Spirit of Joy filled the house. The believers were so happy! We had Bible Study facilitated by our Elder Sherry Ann and believers were encouraged to have the passion for prayer. The Testimonies were inspiring as the believers thanked God for his goodness in their lives. Deacon Caroline encouraged the believers not to worry as God is able to work everything for our good.
Two young men, Sherwin & Derrick gave their lives to the Lord. The believers continue to be blessed and inspired weekly. We thank the God of our father Ezekiel for his goodness and faithfulness. 
Thank you for your prayers.
 
 
NEVIS
This past weeks activities leading to Sunday's worship signifies the work being done by our Leadership and most significantly the few Men in the Church in prayer and studying of the word. Sunday's worship was ripe with Teachings from Archbishop Guti as our Bible Study Led by our Elder Desmond focused on "the Church and Political Responsibility". This aroused much discussion among or Membership with references from 2nd Chronicles 7:14. He stressed the church should be a blessing for the country, the question of "how do we get the church and the Politicians to come together?'' engendered much discussion. The church should train Leaders to come together - created quite a stirring discussion. Some of our Members testified as to how God is helping them through difficult times and thru those challenges is when we see our growth in God. Our recent focus in Bible Study on "Spiritual warfare" has helped may Members cope with what is happening in their personal life's experiences. Our Praise Team led a powerful Praise and worship into the WORD delivered by Deacon Josias. The Men really stood our Sunday with a riveting service and the timeliness of the topics.  
 
NASHVILLE
In Nashville TN FIFMI, the joy of the Lord is our strength. People shared very encouraging testimonies, it is evident that God is giving His Children hope and comfort. There was such a spirit of joy as people praised and worshipped God. Elder Steve led a very interactive and engaging Jeopardy style Bible Study. Pastor Priscilla shared a powerful word about the Kingdom of God. She brought the Kingdom of God to life by using very realistic analogies.
 
In attendance were twenty three people of which seven were children. To the glory of God, one couple who visited last week came back.
We continue to pray for commitment of current members and new souls. We are also praying for a more permanent place of worship.

   TEACHING:  PART OF BABA & AMAI'S MESSAGE
 
 
1 Corinthians 5:10-11 “I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner— not even to eat with such a person.”
Mingling with the people who do such things - you know that your friend is a womanizer, why do you still walk with him? Why not separate from that person? Why not find other Christian people with money? If you have chosen that I want God to bless me, then leave them. You know that woman has a boyfriend, why not separate from her? She’s very strong and inviting you all the time, her position causes you to want to be with her…..God bless you
 
We love you and are praying for you,
Drs Steve & La-Verne Simukai
