Dear Friends,

EXPLO – WATERFALLS PROVINCE

After 4 years, Waterfalls Province held a historic Good News Deliverance Explo from 21 to 24 March 2024, in Mbare Netball Complex open Arena in Mbare. This was the relaunch of the vision of Explo as God showed our father Ezekiel Guti.
We are grateful to the God of Ezekiel for allowing us to organize the Explo with the great evangelist Archbishop Prof Eunor Guti as the keynote speaker. She started with the Explo Ladies meeting, where she explained that Explo is there to change peoples’ lives and that it will only change you if you allow it. It changes people from laziness to diligence, poverty to prosperity, darkness to light, and ignorance to knowledge. Our other speakers for the Ladies Explo, Dr. La-Verne Simukai and Mama Bishop Mupanduki spoke on the virtuous woman from Proverbs 31. 12 people gave their lives to Christ.
The main Explo was blessed with our Mother, Archbishop Eunor Guti and the Explo team of about 60 including Bishop Mutingwa and Apostle Dr. A. Gudyanga. Our Mother explained to us the importance of Explo in our lives. The evangelists taught darkness to light, ignorance to knowledge, poverty to prosperity, and laziness to diligence. All the speakers were mightily used by God. 1850 people were saved, 244 water baptised and about 400 received Baptism in the Holy Spirit.
Our attendance ranged from 4000 on the first day and reached over 10500 on Sunday.
Some of the many miracles include:
several people who used crutches got healed and stopped using crutches.
more than 450 people received healing from different ailments such as heart, and stomach aches, painful legs, and headaches.
Deaf and dumb were healed
hundreds and hundreds received deliverance from various oppressions such as prostitution, drug and substance abuse, barrenness, and marital challenges. Some brought forward their drugs and cigarettes.
To note was the hunger that the people had for salvation. They would literally run to receive Jesus. We are grateful to our Mother Archbishop Prof Eunor Guti and the Explo team. The Explo was also graced by our Father Apostle Dr. Joseph Joe Guti and our Mother Rev Nyasha Guti, the SG Apostle Mishael & Rev Leticia Nyambo and DSG Apostle Dr. Steve & Dr. La-Verne Simukai, as well as the Bishops and Overseers. We are also grateful to the Greater Harare Overseers who also gave us great support. Waterfalls Province has been transformed and lifted to another level.

PRAYER RETREATS

We give glory to the God of our Father Ezekiel H Guti who has been faithful to us in the prayer retreats. Gatherings all over the world saw female Pastors and ladies embark on powerful prayer using Isaiah 58. There were also times of pouring out which saw every member having time to share what Isaiah 58 is doing in their lives and precious moments of faith clinic. Speakers and facilitators were dotted all around the globe with Pastor O Madanika in Botswana, Overseer Makosa in the Middle East, DP Winnie Nzou was ministering in Oman, Overseer Evelyn Mujuruki in the North West province of the UK, Overseer L Mukuna in Francistown Botswana with ladies testifying of the Holy Spirit restoring their broken hearts. Some were delivered from bitterness, anger, unforgiveness, making wrong assumptions, bad communication, and not being able to resolve conflicts. Ladies expressed areas also which they were still working on like the challenges of raising children, some ladies said that they correct their children harshly and are not patient with them. A trio of Dr. Bella Kasese, Overseer Norah Austin, and Pastor Shami Mwale were ministering in Scotland, healing took place even as we worshipped with understanding singing Sweet Jesus. 122 ladies from West Midlands also met with Pastor Ann Forest and there one lady testified that she was healed from dysmenorrhoea during the conference and was able to be active throughout the Conference. Rev Angela Kapandura and Angeline Chabarwa spoke in the Solomon Islands: 13 people received Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour and 3 of them were baptized, someone with a swollen leg was healed. Canada in all 3 of its provinces also held prayer retreats. May the God of our father E.H Guti continue working in our lives so that we live according to Isaiah 58.

JAPAN

Konnichiwa! Kingdom greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are witnessing the mighty hand of God in Japan. We shared the different ways to preach the gospel to non-believers in Japan during our Bible Study. As a result, we received 3 new members last Sunday, and 3 more this week, bringing our total number to 32 – All Glory to God! We continued with our midweek and Sunday services, and we received the Word of God from Elder Mpaso of FIF-China, encouraging us to stand firm and kick out the devil from our lives. Our Pastors also launched the 2024 Home Talents in Japan using the book of our father called “Talents-Matarenda” teaching us to work with our hands while holding on to the covenant that God made with His servant, Ezekiel Guti. The saints are excited and ready to start working. We are excited about our growing numbers, humbled by your support in prayer, and ask for your fervent prayers in securing a physical venue for our services. Thank you.

RUSSIA

We express our gratitude to the God of our Father for His protection of the saints in Russia. We also thank God for the powerful words of encouragement from our Pastor Farai on God’s protection. Despite the massive shooting that occurred last week in Moscow, the saints continued to meet online and we give glory to God for a good attendance of 31 members. We continue to see the hand of God in the church through the youth. Thank you for your prayers.

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

It is now 9 months since the inception of Ras Al Khaimah Assembly in the UAE. This vibrant church is experiencing a tremendous growth rate. We would like to thank the God of our Father who continues to stand with His work. Ras Al Khaimah Assembly was launched with only 8 people in membership. This week we had a powerful service with 35 members in attendance, and our speakers were Evangelist T. & Pastor Melania Mutizwa. The assembly is now led by 3 elders and 7 deacons. We have already set up various ministries and departments like MOI, Go Quickly, Young Adults, Couples, Praise & Worship, Hosting, and Ushering, with vibrant HODs who are doing an amazing job. Our Prayer Department is in place, making sure that the assembly has its prayer sessions on Mondays and Fridays. Our Praise & Worship sessions were backed with musical instruments, and the assembly managed to buy a set of drums. We are also planning our very first Easter conference organized by our Young Adults. The legacy of our father lives on.

UNITED KINGDOM

We thank the God of our Father Professor E. H Guti for the National Family Sunday held on the 17th of March 2024. The UK National FAMB Board together with their National Directors and the support of the National Executive encouraged all assemblies to follow a program as follows: devotion, workshops in ministries (Child Evangelism, Young Generation, Youth and Young Adults, Men of Integrity, and Go Quickly), feedback from ministries with questions addressed by a chosen panel, family quiz, games, praise and worship, family teachings, and fellowship. There was great excitement across the nation some assemblies decided to have teachings during the week building up to the Sunday finale. The sessions included teachings on parenting and raising kingdom families in the diaspora, kingdom couples, and kingdom youth strategies for success. The sessions were conducted by professionals including social workers, medical professionals, doctors and an ophthalmologist, teachers, dietitians, and fitness instructors. Some of the matters raised during some of the question-and-answer sessions included parent and child relations, boys not receiving the same strict treatment as girls and tips on how to raise God-fearing children. Some assemblies ended the day by breaking bread together in fellowship. Another assembly had men celebrate the mothers by gifting them a big cake in appreciation. The church requested that more of these services be organized in the future.

USA

North Carolina – We express our gratitude to the God of Ezekiel for the launch of our assembly on October 22, 2023. We are witnessing the divine intervention as our attendance steadily increases each week in Hendersonville. Currently, we are equipping 10 lay leaders who are on the path to being ordained as Deacons. Moreover, our assembly is fuelled by a fervent dedication to soul-winning. Recently, a young lady born and raised in the USA, plagued by tormenting demons due to her family’s involvement in witchcraft, sought refuge in our assembly. She had been in and out of psychiatric hospitals and had even used Tarot cards to harm others. However, upon surrendering to the grace of the God of Ezekiel, she found favor in His mercy. Together, we conducted a ceremony to burn all artifacts of witchcraft, leading to her liberation from the torment of demons. She embraced Jesus Christ into her life, and on March 24, 2024, she underwent water baptism. Glory be to God for His wondrous work in her life.

CANADA

On the 19th of March, we had our National Tuesday day prayer. 112 gadgets logged in to a life-changing and powerful Tuesday prayer. Testimonies were shared by ladies from the Nation’s 3 provinces on how Tuesday prayer was positively impacting their lives. Our Speaker, Overseer Priscilla Mupangeri taught powerfully on the subject of intercession and praying with a burden. She charged the ladies not to remove the landmark of Tuesday prayer. The ladies were encouraged, revived, and equipped to be intercessors. What an empowering and impactful service it was! The Go Quickly Ladies of Canada have truly been taken to a higher level. Indeed, we give glory to God.

THAILAND

We remain grateful to the God of Ezekiel for His continued faithfulness to His people. This week we had our usual programs with good attendance. On Thursday, we had a ladies’ meeting with Pastor Tariro Magoso, she taught powerfully on wellness and 25 gadgets logged on. Sunday was yet another powerful service with 53 people in attendance, 36 people online, and 17 onsite. We had one visitor, sister Faith from the Philippines. After the service, we had a surprise bridal shower for one of our Deacons. The men also met concurrently for a fellowship over a barbeque and 6 men were in attendance. We are seeing growth of the church and the spirit of love and unity is undeniable. People are testifying of great things the Lord is doing for them. Thank you for continuing to pray for us as we pray for you.

DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO

We would want to thank the God of our father Ezekiel for remembering us again in this first quarter of the year by sending a delegation of Missionaries led by Bishop Langton Mupanduki to Kinshasa DRC. He was accompanied by Evangelist Phillip Chipfakanya and Pastor Vengai Kwaramba. We held our Provincial Council on the 16th of March and Bishop Mupanduki taught from the Guidance Rules and Policy and History book encouraging leaders to be strong, bold, and responsible with our church. On Sunday Evangelist Chipfakanya went to Ndjili church and Pastor Vengai Kwaramba to Kingasani. Our strong and lovely Overseers Clement and Esperance Kisuka are making work easy for the missionaries by interpreting for them as this is a purely French-speaking nation and no one understands English. We are still praying for the translation of key books to French so that we may also be rooted and grounded in the teaching of our Father Ezekiel and the doctrine of our church. We want to thank God for the miracle of a provincial car – this was a long-awaited answered prayer. We thank you for your prayers.

RWANDA

Ladies of Forward in Faith Church in Rwanda held a prayer retreat from 22nd to 24th March 2024. There was a great move of the Holy Spirit and Prophecies also took place. Ladies were revived Spiritually. Pastor Annah Magumuye was the facilitator with 15 ladies in attendance. There were great teachings on Prayer, Home Talents, Partnering with God, and Go Quickly Mandate. On Sunday 24th March, Go Quickly Ministry hosted the church service. There were 61 adults and 42 children in attendance. Pastor Humphrey Magumuye conducted Bible study and taught powerfully about giving. We had a highly anointed Praise and worship session. We thank God for raising the Spirit of prayer in our church. The word was ministered by a tag team of 4, who preached on the topic, “The Kingdom Of God.” These were Pastor Annah, Elder Fay Hodza, Elder Simba Mushonga, Elder Feza Kabangu, and Deaconess Diane. Healings and deliverances occurred during the service. The service ended on a high note and everyone went home encouraged. Indeed, God is doing wonderful work in Forward in Faith Church in Rwanda. Praise the Lord.

We give glory and honour to the God of our Father, Prof E. H. Guti for what He is doing in the lives of the saints of F.I.F.M.I Block 8 Province Gaborone, as we continue practicing the doctrine of our church is unity, fear of God, love, and prayers.

The hosting team of 28 stewards and hostesses, Masters of ceremonies, were trained. Furthermore, a two-day Seminar for all leaders was held on the 15th and 16th of March with 81 and 72 attendees respectively. Various vital topics were taught under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Leaders were inspired, enlightened, empowered, and equipped. Pastors and Elders took turns to teach Guidance Rules and Policy, Child Dedication, Duties of Church a Secretary, Water Baptism, Burying the dead, Holy Communion, Giving, Tithes, and Offerings among other topics. The teachings were wholly from the books of our Father and were accompanied by practical demonstrations to place all leaders in a position where they could minister and function properly without fear.

Chiredzi

We thank the God of our father Professor Ezekiel Handinawangu Guti who enabled us as Chiredzi Zone Ladies to host a Big Tuesday with the International Go Quickly Director Dr. La-Verne Simukai on the 19th of March 2024 at Tshovani Local Mother Church. A total of 970 women from Chikombedzi, Checheche, Mwenezi, and Chiredzi gathered, expectantly to hear from the Lord. We heard testimonies of what the Lord is doing in the four provinces, special mention was given to the ongoing prayer retreats, and many testified of how they were delivered through reading and practicing the word from Isaiah 58. We also had testimonies of how ladies are working home talents and buying their home assets. Our Speaker, the Go Quickly International Director Dr. La-Verne Simukai traveled with a powerful 22-member delegation comprising Overseers, District Pastors, Regional Pastors, and Elders. A few were given time to testify of the goodness of the Lord and encourage women to continue in prayer as well as working Home Talents. In her teaching, Dr La-Verne shared with the ladies, a message from our mother Professor Eunor Guti, as she emphasized that we should do the things that we have seen, heard, and learned from our father, such as being intercessors. After this powerful word, Dr. La-Verne prayed with those who did not speak in new tongues, 50 ladies received the power and spoke in new tongues. She went on to pray with those who wanted joy in their life and as the people ran forward, some fell under the spirit and the house was filled with joy as people began to laugh in the spirit. In the process, a lot of women were delivered from various spirits and diseases. The day ended in joy and jubilation as the ladies received gifts sent by our mother. Lastly, the International Director gave a handshake to everyone who wanted. We give glory to the Lord.

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
