Dear Friends,

SLOVAKIA

We really thank the God of our father, E.H Guti, for leading the church in Slovakia. We continue to be revived in our spirits by both prayer and the sharing from our Sunday services as well as from our WhatsApp group. Sunday, 17 March 2024, recorded a powerful service hosted at one of the believers’ residences. We documented an awesome attendance of 10 adults and 3 children. The people testified the goodness of God in their lives even as we are in a foreign land. We had a great bible study where we concluded on the topic “Who you are in Christ” as extracted from “Sunday Morning Lectures”. The Bible study was followed by powerful praise and worship, and lastly, the word of God. After the service, we had time to share food and get to know each other personally. We continue to see the hand of the God of Ezekiel in all our gatherings. The church continues to pray for a proper venue for our services.

GUYANA

We thank the God of our father Apostle E. H. Guti for His faithfulness in our nation. We give Him all the Glory and honor as we have finished the casting of our church foundation. Our hearts are rejoicing as we witness the great work which God is doing. As we continue our weekly services our church meets every morning at 5 am for devotional prayer on WhatsApp and ladies for their Tuesday meeting. On Friday Pastor Fanuel ministered about the favor of God from one of our church books entitled “Dissatisfaction Because of the Sense of Eden”. He also encouraged the church to pray for our mother Apostle Eunor Guti and the Good News Deliverance Explo being held this week. Saturday the Child Evangelism went for an outing together with their teachers. They had a lot of fun participating in kite flying and different games. On Sunday we had a powerful Big Sunday with a great Bible Study from the book Sunday Morning Lectures followed by powerful praise and worship, choirs from different groups and the KMD had time to dance. Powerful testimonies were shared. The church had great joy because of building our church. The word of God was preached using our church books. The sick were prayed for. Thank you for your prayers as you continue to pray for us as we are building our church.

BELIZE

Our morning glory and Monday prayers are well attended. On Wednesday’s Bible study, face to face, we studied in more detail the kingdom of God as we continued from the book Hidden Treasure in Belize City. We were blessed to receive Apostle Zenas and Overseer Dr. Catherine Marurama for the Apostolic visit to Punta Gorda, they were warmly welcomed by Pastor Diane and the team. Bible studies were led by Apostle Zenas focusing on the Kingdom of God. Across the assemblies, 14 people attended in person, while 7 gadgets were connected online. Thursday and Friday home visits were conducted to multiple families. 2 people accepted Jesus Christ. Friday evening the service was led by Apostle Zenas and centered on Water Baptism, Belze City, and Mango Creek congregations joined in. 7 attendees were present, with 25 devices connected via Zoom and 3 joining through WhatsApp. On Saturday Water Baptism ceremony for 2 individuals was carried out in Punta Gorda by the Overseers. On Sunday the word shared by Pastor Victory, one person was ministered deliverance and one accepted Jesus as Lord and Saviour and to bring the total to 3 this week. While in Punta Gorda Dr. Catherine shared a message on Tithes. Praise be to God for the enriching and spiritually uplifting experience! Continue to pray for the Nation of Belize that we may grow numerically, spiritually, and financially with a soul-winning drive to continue as planned in Belmopan, Orange Walk Dangriga and many places the Lord is opening for us in 2024.

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

We thank the God of our father Ezekiel Guti for a powerful Sunday service and for the powerful message today using the book of the Apostle Ezekiel Guti which talks about how giving to God is the beginning of prosperity. We reflected on how God told our father Ezekiel Guti when he was in America to go to Africa and “teach my people to work talents and give to God” and today we see the prosperity in the people and in the FIFMI Church thanks to the obedience of the man of God. We ask for prayer so that God supplies finances to have a new assembly in Pedro Brand.

CAYMAN ISLANDS

We want to thank God for all that He continues to do in the Cayman Islands church. Cell groups continue to meet for weekly Bible study meetings in the respective venues. Elder Musa and Beritha Machembe went to represent the Cayman Islands church to support Bishop and Pastor Tina at their daughter Vanessa’s wedding. This week we had 39 people (8 men, 16 women, and 15 children) in attendance. Of the 39 in attendance, we had three visitors. Our Secretary Mrs Makowah shared the word on Dealing with Strongholds in the Mind. Thank you for your continued prayers. May you continue to intercede for us, so that the church will have an increased understanding of God’s word and that God will continue to open doors for the growth of the church and for the church members. We continue to pray for our Leaders, that the Lord will guide them and direct them as they advise and minister to the church.

MALAYSIA

We are grateful to the God of our father Ezekiel Guti for His unwavering love for our nation. This week was marked with great intercession as we prepared a soul-winning outreach to Kuching Sarawak. On 16 March we relaunched an assembly in Kuching Sarawak with 12 people receiving Jesus Christ and 3 re-dedicating their lives. We had our first service on Sunday and everyone was ecstatic with the new life in Jesus and in Forward in Faith. Glory be to God! We have started AMFCC part-time school classes locally, to the convenience of our students. This encouraged all our leaders who had not yet participated to enrol together with other believers. We thank God for the vision of AMFCC which our father said it will make the church grow thicker. Sunday service in Kuala Lumpur had an attendance of 31 adults and 1 child in person and 38 online viewers. Pastor Rutendo led a very informative Bible Study session entitled ” Know your Church”. This was followed by the word of God from Sister Bethel and Deacon Roshan who preached powerfully on Claiming your inheritance and Effective Prayer respectively. We were greatly challenged by the word of God. Some of the miracles recorded:
Two ladies who were suffering from nightmares were prayed for and were delivered.
A young lady who had been served with a letter of termination of contract by her employer was prayed for and after 1 week the employer informed her that her name was no longer among those who were going to lose their jobs.
We give all the glory to the God of our Father. Thank you for your prayers.

BOTSWANA

Francistown – We thank the God of our father, the Servant and Apostle of God Professor E.H Guti for the Child Evangelism Ministry of the North East (Francistown) Province under the leadership of Overseers T & A Zhou. The Child Evangelism Ministry hosted a Career Guidance Day on Saturday the 16th of March 2024, which was one of its kind. It was a huge success and motivational to our young pupils. About 50 Children aged between 10 and 18 years attended the seminar. We had various speakers from the Medical field, Engineering and IT Field, Finance and banking field, Law sectors, Cosmetology and Tourism, Business and Entrepreneurship as well as the Pastoral Sector. The level of inquisitiveness of our children opened our eyes as parents to understand how with enough guidance we a future church with people can understand what they need in life.

ZACOSF

ZAOGA College Students Fellowship hosted a National Leadership Seminar from the 15th to the 17th of March 2024 at AMFCC. We were so privileged on Saturday to have our father Apostle Dr. Joseph Joe Guti and mama, Pastor Nyasha Guti. They encouraged us to hold on to the God of our father Ezekiel and continue practicing what we were taught by our father and mother Archbishop E.H. Guti and Apostle Eunor Guti. A total of 200 college students and 25 former students, whom we call coordinators, from Harare, Mutare, Masvingo, Bulawayo, Gweru, and Kwekwe regions came for the leadership seminar. The panel of speakers included Dr. Kennedy Mauye, two of ZACOSF’s regional pastors T. Kapunzeni of Masvingo and D. Marambire of Kwekwe, Dr. R.J. Dadirai, Prof. F. Kasese, Elder Nick Bhero, Advocate Authur Marara, Elder M. Chimwe, Elder Engineer D. Gapara, Engineer James Vakai and our ministry director. We were also blessed to have some of the founding former students, who were there when the ministry was founded at Harare Poly in 1997, Elder Mr. and Mrs. Museza and Elder Silence Chinguwa. Topics covered ranged from ZAOGA-ZACOSF doctrine and history, salvation, character, Godly lifestyle at college, the teachings of our father, finances, and ministry support, making money through personal branding and value proposition, to leadership and preparation for Industry 4.0. Singing sensation, Faith Makoni and SADOP Minister MJ (Maxen Jared) graced the seminar and put up spirited performances. Eight people received Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and ten people were water baptised on Sunday afternoon. Thirty students were practically filled with the Holy Spirit. Many students were delivered by the power of God while some were healed from various ailments. We are certain that ZACOSF will continue to grow in leaps and bounds developing college students into global changers for the Kingdom of God. Such leadership capacity-building programs will ensure the ministry will be effective from generation to generation.

Seke East

Indeed the Legacy continues. Glory be to the God of our Father Ezekiel Guti for yet another opportunity to witness the continued furtherance of the Kingdom of God in Seke East province. We successfully held our Legacy Provincial Big Sunday on the 17th of March 2024. An estimated 800 people attended the Big Sunday service held at the Local Mother Church. We had Bishop Baba and Amai Mlambo from our Headquarters as Speakers. Bishop M Mlambo shared powerfully from the theme, “Practicing to be true disciples who remain rooted and grounded in the doctrine of the Church….” Encouragements were also drawn from different scriptures and books of our Father including the Hidden Treasures and History of ZAOGA. He informed the saints that the God of Ezekiel is at work and hence all the saints of Forward in Faith must be at work preaching to all generations. Six new believers gave their lives to Christ. The speaker gave his testimony of how God delivered him from cancer as he ministered to many who had come for deliverance and he prayed for them all and many received their healing, glory to the God of Ezekiel. We thank God for our Overseers N.S Chakodzonga for their support and direction in making this Big Sunday a resounding success. The joy was visibly overwhelming as many believers took to the platform to praise and dance for their God.

TEACHING: PART OF BABA & AMAI’S MESSAGE

Pg 17 of the book, Prayer of a Righteous Man avails much…, our father tells us the importance of prayer and says, “The book of Job also tells us the importance of prayer, the end of the story of Job we see how God intervened on behalf of Job and tells his friends to present themselves before Job, so that he may pray for them.”My wrath is cuddled against thee. At Eliphaz and against two friends of Job. Job 42:7, “And so it was, after the LORD had spoken these words to Job, that the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “My wrath is aroused against you and your two friends, for you have not spoken of Me what is right, as My servant Job has.”
The statement with the further words added is “my servant Job shall pray for you, for him I will accept.” Job prayed for his friends. Job 42:8….”
Job 42:7-8 Job’s friends were told to go to Job because he was the one God would hear. We are now being told the kind of prayer that God will take. Job’s friends said bad things about Job and about God, but God still says to them go to my servant Job I will hear him when he prays. God would hear Job because he was a righteous man. He was blameless before God and would shun evil.
Job 1:1 “There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil”….God bless you.

We love you and are praying for you,
Apostle Drs Steve & La-Verne Simukai
