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

Apostles Update Week 42

Dear Friends  
We thank God for the success of our second edition of the Big Sunday. Our believers were so excited as they are growing in the administration of the service. 29 people attended the service. We had 5 new visitors, 3 of them gave their lives to Jesus. Great deliverance took place as various bondages were broken. A lady confirmed she had been healed from a burning sensation in her legs that was causing her not to be able to walk long distance and stand for many hours.
Tuesday ladies prayer recorded 9 ladies. Midweek services had good attendance with a record high attendance on Wednesday bible studies of 31 people from both centres. Powerful teachings on salvation were delivered that caused 4 people to rededicate their lives to Jesus. Continue to pray for us that the people who are repenting are be able to attend church.
We thank God for a blessed week as we continue with our mid-week services. This Tuesday we had a wonderful week as 6 ladies managed to come for prayer and also 5 men of integrity had their own prayer meeting. Our home bible study groups were well attended. People have a hunger to learn the word of God and we are seeing souls being saved. One person received Christ and over 42 people attended bible study groups at 3 different groups.
Mid-week services were well attended with 32 people on Thursday and 39 on Friday where the presence of God was thick deliverance taking place from time of Praise and Worship until the preaching time. The preacher continued in worship as God ministered to His people and spoke a word of encouragement to the people.
We had a great Sunday which was well attended with 68 people. We also had time to bid farewell to Pastor Victory and Helen Makonese. People were set free by forgiving after hearing the powerful word. This week we had six people who received Christ Jesus and 4 of them were at church, God is so gracious and faithful to His word. Thank you for your prayers as you continue to pray for us for a place of worship and a mission house.
For more than three years the church in the USA prayed and trusted God for visas. The entire FIFMI family worldwide joined in praying for visas for USA pastors and indeed we saw the faithfulness of the Lord with the granting of visas for our Pastors Bevan and Anna Mutata. October 3, 2019 is therefore a significant day for Atlanta church and the South East region of the USA comprising Miami, Orlando, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Nashville. Our Pastors and Overseers Bevan and Anna and their children landed on USA soil. There was much rejoicing, singing, and dancing at the Atlanta international airport by the saints which included representation from other assemblies in the region, some of whom drove more than 600 km to welcome the Overseers. The rejoicing continued throughout the weekend and we were honored to have Bishop Ed Bianchi and our deputy administrators Overseers Cathy and Zenas Marurama in attendance to help receive our Overseers. 
From the moment they arrived in Atlanta we saw things shifting both in the spiritual and the physical realms. Deliverance is already taking place among the saints. We have started experiencing new souls just walking to the mission house and connecting with the man and woman of God. One lady and her 3 children are now attending church and the lady gave her life to Christ. Trends in Sunday attendance have jumped from an average of 40 which included adults and children to 73 (42 adults, 13 youth and young adults and 18 children) in the three weeks they have been here. Sunday October 20, four people gave their lives to Christ including a couple visiting from Nebraska, Glory to God! A family of four made a commitment to join Forward in Faith Ministries. 
Administration wise, our Overseers have held the first workers meeting with the Atlanta church workers on Friday the 18th of October and this was well attended. There was a lot of enthusiasm and we are ready to flow in the vision and authority in which they have been sent by our father Archbishop Guti. Overseer Anna ministered in the South Carolina assembly and God showed up in a mighty way with deliverance and healing taking place. Attendance in South Carolina has grown from an initial 5 to 24 in attendance. The region is planning a Big Sunday the weekend of 8 November, 2019 with the Overseers and this will be hosted by our baby church Nashville Tennessee with attendance by saints from all the assemblies in the South East.
There is much work still to be done. The fields are ready for harvest in our region so we humbly ask that you continue to pray for us. We want to be a beacon of Christ in the USA. Also, join us in thanking our visionaries the Archbishops, Baba and Amai Guti, for sending us shepherds in Atlanta and wonderful Overseers for our region, Overseers Bevan and Anna Mutata. Glory to God!
We thank God for our Sunday service. There was such a presence of the Holy Spirit during Praise and Worship. Our speaker gave a dynamic teaching about “The Spirit of the Lord”. 
The church continues to fast and pray as they seek the face of God together with the entire USA nation. In attendance were 18 people including one visitor and 6 children. We continue to seek more souls and pray for the commitment of current members. We’re also praying for a more permanent place of worship.
We thank God for the powerful Women’s Prayer retreat that was hosted by Pastor Tehillar in Orlando, Florida. Women came from as far as Miami as did our tent-setting elders from Jacksonville. Women camped at church from Thursday to Sunday. We thank God for a lot of deliverance and teaching which took place. The Word of God was taught with power under topics such as The principles of Prayer and fasting, Faith, Kingdom finances, Talents, Missions and Kingdom culture.
  • A lady testified the goodness of God by her brother's prison sentence being reduced from 25 years to 10 years and for him being moved closer to his family.
  • Another testified of favor at their job (being chosen to represent her big company in a commercial) and never have lacked due to being diligent in giving their tithes to the Lord.
  • Many rejoiced after being filled with the Holy Spirit when the Overseer preached on Saturday night.
Deliverance came through vomiting; even a religious demon was cast out. Sunday service had 29 adults and 15 children. We thank God for allowing this life changing Prayer Retreat to take place and for Overseer Anna Mutata to visit and minister to the saints in Florida.
Thank you all for your prayers. We thank our father and mother for this life changing gospel of Jesus Christ. We finished on a high note, had 44 saints for Sunday service.
Thank you for praying for us and we are grateful to the God our father Ezekiel for the amazing grace upon our nation. This week we had a powerful week of prayer and fasting where believers came out every night seeking the face of God. We thank God who strengthened us. Attendance was an average of 25 persons every night we met. We had 5 visitors attending prayer.
The Wednesday healing and deliverance session continued with 11 people in attendance. 4 were visitors. One person received Jesus in that service. A lady having pains in her legs was healed and another one was delivered from being tormented by the devil.
Wednesday evening before prayer we had a ‘Soup Kitchen’ and we managed to serve above 50 people as we were bringing an awareness of FIF's presence in Bridgetown. 2 new people we served soup came to the service that very night and have since made FIF their home. Glory to God. One young lady went to the Mission house when she heard that there are Pastors there seeking counselling, she got counselled and gladly received Jesus.
For the first time on Saturday evening, the youths went out with the Pastors, 23 youths attended and one young man gave his life to the Lord.
Sunday we saw a miracle in terms of attendance as we had 56 persons in attendance, 51 adults and 5 children. We had 11 visitors and after the message on the Kingdom of God, 3 people gave their lives to the Lord. After the service two people were prayed for and a lady was healed of inflammation in her right leg. We give glory to God.
We want to thank the God of our father E.H Guti for a very unique and successful National Couples Conference. This was under the leadership of the National Couples Directors Overseers Kasese. Different speakers tackled topics which dealt with Smart partnership, Family business, Blended families, infidelity and its impact on the family, Family trusts, Grooming among other topics. 
Deliverance took place on Friday and couples were set free forgiving each other. That evening service was attended by 143 people. On Saturday the couples enjoyed a romantic dinner which was attended by 198 people and afterwards there was renewal of vows as some ladies were surprised with wedding rings.
Sunday attendance was 186. The power of God moved in a tremendous way as Bishop J Chikwawawa shared on the Fear of the Lord. Marriages were restored for those who had given up. Many couples opened up secrets from each other. Love between couples was rekindled. There was so much joy. We believe the couples who attended this conference will never be the same again.
A total of 75 women met in Wales for a prayer retreat hosted by Dr Bella Kasese from 25th - 27th October 2019. Women hungry for the Lord, with a burden for the work of God were gathered to pray for the servants of God our father and mother Apostles E.H and E Guti. 
Many teachings were shared. The guest speaker Pastor Cecilia Zezani & local female pastors gave feedback from the just ended International Female Pastors and Today's Woman conferences.
There was a powerful deliverance session on Saturday night; many women delivered from evil spirits and many other health conditions. Many shared testimonies of being set free and emotionally healed from different spirits that were causing pain in their children and marriages. A few are recorded below:-
  • suicidal thoughts 
  • barrenness 
  • restoration of relationship between mother and daughter 
  • recurrent acute pains 
  • girls who attended empowered to go and live victorious lives after the life changing teachings and testimonies from the guest speaker who poured out her life during the testimonial preaching
  • two young women who had left the church because of issues recommitted their lives through prayer and the 
Pastor C Zezani taught on talents before the ladies were dismissed on the last day and everyone went away with joy and peace in their hearts.
We thank you for your prayers we managed to put the roof on our structure in the rural assembly at Ampasy. It is true that as the ten days letter says that God already has a plan with Baba for a place before people get there. A former pastor who had gone into drinking and drugs gave his life to Christ after the wife had left him and his parents had chased him from home. He is now helping the pastors bring his friends to church for salvation. We visited the new assembly established by Pastor Parfait and him. Many people got delivered from demons. This Sunday after Pastor Parfait taught about the Holy Spirit the whole week in church people received the Holy Spirit during praising and worship. Attendance was 67 adults and 27 children.
  • New couple received school fees, bags, uniforms and books for their children after prayer.
  • A young man sick because of drugs was prayed for and got tested, results said no trace of drugs was found in his blood now he is normal and plays the guitar in church. Glory to God.
We thank the God of our father Ezekiel Guti for continuing to grow our church in Mauritius, both in numbers and in the knowledge of Christ. Our lives are truly being enriched and transformed through great teachings from our Pastors.
A great miracle - we now have one local (Mauritian) man who recently gave his life to Christ and is now fellowshipping with us. He was baptised last week, together with three other believers, and has attended 3 services so far. We are praying that his family joins him and starts worshipping with us. This man had been suspended from his job before baptism and last week he was called back to work. We serve a miracle-working God.
We continue to see the hand of God during our Sunday services. We had 39 people in attendance, being 31 adults and 8 children. The Holy Spirit took over, everyone was soaked in His presence and the church was set ablaze as saints started praying in tongues. The normal course of our service changed and people were prayed for by our Pastors. We experienced renewal, empowerment, restoration and the love of God. What a mighty God we serve. Thank you for your prayers.
It was a wonderful week for the youth ministry as they hosted a great International Youth Leadership Seminar at AMFCC from 24-27 October 2019. Various speakers including International Youth Pastor Callisto Manyati and Apostle Kapandura taught rigorously on leadership and living a holy life respectively. More than 50 youth members were delivered from various infirmities troubling them. Friday night the seminar was officially opened with a blissful and colourful presentation. On Saturday there was a mighty move of the Spirit of God resultantly 53 members were filled with the Holy Spirit and started speaking in many tongues. The attendance ranged from 500 on the first day to 2573 on the last day of the conference. There were 91 international delegates from Zambia, Mozambique, Botswana, United Kingdom, South Africa, Malawi and Namibia. Glory to God.
Young Ezekiels Champions team embarked on a 4 Day Crusade in Tafara, Harare Zimbabwe from 17 October to 20 October 2019. The power of God was witnessed throughout the Crusade with an average attendance of 500 people and above. The crusade recorded 112 people to have received Christ as the Lord and Saviour of their lives, 44 people were water baptised on Sunday 20 October 2019 and many people were Holy Spirit filled with the evidence of speaking in tongues. God’s unlimited and Almighty power was also witnessed from day one to the last day through mighty deliverance, healing, prophesy and working of miracles. 
Of notable records are as follows:
  • A young boy at the age of 10 years who couldn’t speak and hear from birth was prayed for and God restored his sense of hearing and was also able to speak. Glory to the God of Ezekiel.
  • A certain woman who had an operation in her eyes 10 years ago couldn’t face the light directly because of the intensity of the pain. But after she was prayed for, God touched her and she came testifying that she was now able to face the light. Glory to Jesus
  • A certain lady who had her right ear closed and pained since 2015 and had tried different things to no avail, was prayed for and received her miracle. 
  • As the evangelist were preaching demons would manifest from homes and people came carrying people who had manifested demons whilst there were in their homes. Truly the power of God has no distance limitations. 
Many people were delivered and healed from eyesight problems, hearing problems, leg issues and delivered from different spirits of darkness

I John 3:2 “Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
If I’m lazy and I don’t pray or read the Bible it’s my fault, it’s nothing to do with Jesus. He has done it all at the cross. When the city council gives you a house they don’t come and sweep for you. You can live in dirt it’s up to you. If you play with sin it’s up to you, Jesus has done His job. Forgiveness and your nature is different, what you feel in you is your problem, it has nothing to do with Jesus. The feeling I’m feeling has nothing to do with my spirit. It’s important to know that Jesus died for my sins. He didn’t die for your feelings. Feelings are in your body. Food never goes to the heart but the body. Jesus died for your heart, your heart must change. Your heart is bad. Your heart must be born again. He died for you to have a good heart, a heart of Jesus. God bless you.
We love you and are praying for you,
Drs Steve & La-Verne Simukai
