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

Apostles Update Week 38

Dear Friends  
 
 
4th MALE PASTORS CONFERENCE 
We want to thank the God of our father for the great privilege of sitting at the feet of the Servant and Apostle of God Archbishop E.H Guti as Male Pastors from different parts of the world. Running under the theme 'Developing A 21st Century Kingdom Male Pastor' , the Conference ran from the 24th - 28th of September at Braeside Provincial Centre. Teachings covered Men's Spirituality, Sexuality, Health, Financial aptitude; Managing Physical and Spiritual relationships; Projects; Personal development; Wealth Creation and Effective Pastoring. All teachings this time were unique because the speakers were sharing their life experiences and how they have overcome various areas that affect a man. The program was so interactive and engaging. It had more questions and answers sessions. The highlight of the Conference were the opening remarks and teaching by our father explaining the vision of Men's Conferences and the first ever visit and teaching by our mother Archbishop Dr Eunor Guti at a Male Pastors Conference. Like children who had been missing their mum and are excited when she comes, so was the mood and atmosphere when our mother stepped into the auditorium at Braeside Provincial Centre. The deep teaching and visit by our Mother helped us to understand our female counterparts better and Male Pastors promised to change in so many ways. Saturday afternoon the men had an unforgettable sport and fellowship session.
 
At its peak 580 Male Pastors checked in at Braeside Provincial Centre. Sunday the 29th saw us coming together as Male and Female Pastors at AMFCC receiving life changing teachings from our parents. We had Holy Communion combined and received a blessing from our father at the close of the Conference. ZAOGA FIF Male Pastors will never be the same again.
 
FEMALE PASTORS CONFERENCE
We had an amazing, power packed Conference at AMFCC Harare from the 24th to 29th of September 2019. An estimate of 850 female pastors were in attendance. Over 50 Nations and States were present.
 
We had a variety of workshops, discussions, question and answer segments that were life transforming. We had powerful speakers who shared on the following topics: Salvation, Women and Law, Grooming and Etiquette, Prayer; Faith, Pastoring, Giving, Dental Care, Marriage and Emotional healing, Missionary work, Housekeeping and Hygiene, Deliverance, raising teens and stress management and hosting and hospitality.
 
Our mother Dr. Eunor encouraged the female pastors to love another, be prayerful, have self control and to be submissive to their husbands in addition to living in the kingdom and doing the work of God wholeheartedly .
 
Our father professor E.H Guti graced the conference and taught that obedience is better than sacrifice and that we should not forsake counsel from the elderly, experienced people. He also encouraged us to have genuine faith and teach our children the same. Paul saw genuine faith in Timothy which he got from his mother Eunice who got it from her own mother Loise. We need to teach our children the goodness of this God of Ezekiel. Marriages were revived and there was great joy when the male pastors joined the female pastors on Sunday. After teaching us Baba blessed all the male and female pastors and we partook communion together.
We give glory to the God of Ezekiel who made the conference a success.
 
 
TRINIDAD & TOBAGO
We are so thankful to the God of our father, and the prayers of the saints that have seen us going through in Trinidad and Tobago. Grounding of the believers continues, midweek services recorded an average of 12 people in Belmont and 6 people in San Juan assemblies. Tuesday was a public holiday and we hosted a send off service for our outgoing short-term missionaries Pastors Phil and Judith. What an emotional service it was, punctuated with touching testimonies and the impact of FIF church in the lives of the people. We wrapped up the week with our Sunday services recording 14 people in San Juan and 17 people in Belmont assemblies, 2 people gave their lives to Jesus, several believers got their healing and deliverance. We thank God for a wonderful week.
 
 
GUYANA
We are very thankful to God and Apostle and Servant of God who sent us General Overseers Atoria and Florence Gudyanga for three weeks and we made the most of it as FIF Guyana church was empowered, encouraged and grounded in the word.
Ladies prayer and meeting had 9 people in attendance. Our 3 bible study groups were attended with average of 12 people.
We held our first ever couples fellowship on Thursday 26 September 2019 and 32 people were in attendance. We thank God for His favour, we had games and the Word from Overseer Atoria was life changing. Our other service attendance was averaging 19 as we continued to ground the church in knowing who they are in Christ. Sunday attendance was 26 Adults, 6 young generation and 17 children. Pastor Helen and Victory taught bible study on Confession and Kingdom of God from Sunday morning Lecture respectively
 
Testimonies:
  • A 13 year old boy was thanking God for His dad who attended church for the first time.
  • A couple had a breakthrough in their marriage after Overseer Gudyanga prayed for them at couples fellowship. They overcame an attack and the wife is already seeing an improvement in her husband's attitude.
This week 7 people in total received Jesus Christ: one lady on Wednesday during our bible study, three on Sunday during church and the other three at home during our Sunday home visitation. They all declared FIFMI their home. 5 children were dedicated this Sunday. Continue to pray for us for a place of our own for worship.
 
NASHVILLE
We had a Sunday Service with a difference in Nashville. We planned our regular service but to the glory of God the Holy spirit took over and it became a testimonial Sunday. 
  • One of our Deacons whom God is using to minister to women in jail shared about how the women she has been witnessing to are flooding her inbox with messages of how God touched their lives.
  • Our Pastor shared a touching testimony about how God continues to intervene in different situations in their daughter’s life as she was thanking God for adding another year to her life.
  • Another young lady shared how God touched her life and miraculously delivered her from death.
The church was touched by the imminent power and intervention of the Almighty God. We give God the highest praise for these and other testimonies of what God is doing in Nashville. We continue to pray for more souls and commitment of current members.
 
BARBADOS
We thank the God of our father Ezekiel for His faithfulness. We received our new beloved Pastors Thomas & Rhoda Dewa early this week. We had an awesome week in the presence of God. Wednesday, all the believers came together to welcome our Pastors. It was indeed a powerful time of prayer. Many believers received healing and restoration. 27 believers attended the service. Friday, we had an awesome prayer session followed by a powerful Word. Fourteen people gave their lives to the Lord. Attendance was 29. Sunday, we had a powerful service. Indeed, the believers had amazing testimonies of God's goodness and faithfulness in their lives. 6 people gave their lives to the Lord. We thank God for His marvelous deeds in our midst. Attendance was 43 adults and 5 children. We thank you for your prayers.
 
ST KITTS 
Jehovah is the most high! We thank the God of Ezekiel here in St Kitts after spending 5 months before receiving Pastors, finally Overseer Enock and Omega were received with exceeding joy. This Sunday the attendance was 30 people, 24 adults 2 young generation and 4 children. One member who had backslidden was followed up by Overseer and is back in church. The Pastors quickly went into church business the whole week. Join with us here in St Kitts as we rejoice over a baptism experience in a space of time. This last Saturday, Overseer Enock baptized 4 people in the Caribbean Sea, after a class on baptism. One of the candidates had heard baptism and he also developed interest to be baptized, but he was not born again, instead a religious person. After the one on one teaching, he received Jesus as His personal Saviour and was also baptized. This Sunday the man came to church nicely dressed, glory to the God of Ezekiel. On Sunday again another member who had backslidden showed up in church. Another miracle to note is that September to December St Kitts & Nevis experiences some hurricanes, last Week the weather news warned that St Kitts and Nevis was going to be hit by a hurricane. The Overseers went into a fast and prayers commanding the storm to disappear. The God of Ezekiel is faithful; He pushed the Hurricane back into the Atlantic Ocean. What can you say for this kind of God? We continue to ask for your prayers so that our church can continue to grow, so that many souls will come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. We give glory to the God of Ezekiel, who is still with us here in St Kitts.
 
NEVIS
Nevis was excited and ready on Sunday as we welcomed our new Pastors Rose and Peter Natsa with a Big Sunday attendance and a highly spirited worship. Praise God our members came out in their numbers along with visitors. One visitor testified that she was sitting on her porch feeling depressed and one of our Elders passed by, they spoke and he encouraged her to come to church and she was so happy she did.  The Word stirred the members to “Enjoy the Kingdom”. Four persons gave their hearts to the Lord. We praise God for an awesome service and continue to pray for special needs for our members, the delivery of a Bus for transportation to get our members to and from the church.

Punta Gorda Assembly: We're still seeing the hand of God every week as we see His life-changing work in the lives of our people in PG.
One person repented and received Jesus during the week and Wednesday Bible study saw an increase in attendance
Our Sunday service was a blessed service. Our Sunday school program continued as usual as the kids gathered in excitement as they learnt about the birth of Jesus and played various games.

PHILIPPINES
We want to thank the God of our father, Baba Guti for hearing our prayers. For a long time now, we have been praying for a long term Pastor. On Sunday we celebrated as we had our first service with our own Pastor. The church was very happy and excited to receive their very own long term pastors, Pastors Luke and Mable Mutsigwa. 
Philippines will never remain the same. Indeed our God is faithful to His promises. One member had a sore throat but after being prayed for was healed instantly. We also conducted our first general meeting with the leaders and our Pastors. We were made to understand the vision of Forward In Faith Philippine church and Asia as a whole! To God be the glory!
 
 
NIGERIA
We would like to thank the God of Ezekiel for yet another wonderful week in Nigeria. We were blessed by the visit of Bishop Zhou.
In Sango we had an evening service with an attendance of 55 people. People testified of instant healing. The bishop also encouraged people to use their hands not to only depend on headquarters. The one day service revived people.
Our new assembly Konifewo also had a powerful service. The attendance was 51 people. Deliverance and healing took place. The new believers were blessed and encouraged. Two power packed services were held at Lagos from the 27th to the 30th of September. On Friday the attendance was 44 and on Saturday it was 53.
On Sunday bishop attended the service at the centre in Lagos.
We thank God that Bishop Zhou was also able to see our land and the Igwe of the area informing him that we are about to start the building project by the grace of God.
The chief was very happy and he promised to protect us as we start the project.
We would like to thank the God of Ezekiel for the church in Nigeria we are seeing growth and maturity and people are catching the vision. Women’s ministry is coming up and they are attending Tuesday prayers and Thursday fellowships and they are also working talents to build a wall at our land.
Thank you for praying for us.
 
 
AMFCC GARAGE
Friday the 27th of September 2019 saw ZAOGA service centre (AMFCC GARAGE) entire staff heading to the Prayer Mountain in Bindura in obedience to the teachings of our father found in the book The Prayer Of A Righteous Man Avails Much and the Longest Recorded Prayer. We were praying for the growth of our garage which was commissioned in 1977 and for God to give our father partners who share the same vision with him that will see the purchase of state of the art equipment and roofing the workshop.
This will bring to an end the church losing a lot of money as vehicles are being repaired elsewhere. Our Service Centre was established way back in 1977 ZAOGA FIF. The church had less than 8 vehicles then. We thank God we had a wonderful experience in His Presence.

   TEACHING:  PART OF BABA & AMAI'S MESSAGE
 
 
It’s not good to live in sin afraid that people will catch you with that naked picture.
You can be full of lust, as long as you don’t touch the woman you are still holy. Keep on fighting, you will win.
Maybe the pastor gave you that position because you were giving lots of money - why not say I’m still fighting with these things rather than take the position.
It is bad luck as a man when every woman loves you. It is an evil spirit. Fight it. God bless you.
 
We love you and are praying for you,
Drs Steve & La-Verne Simukai
