Dear Friends,

Happy 64th Anniversary ZAOGA FIFMI!!


We 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 and from our WhatsApp group. Sunday 26 May was quite reviving as we joined a service virtually under the Schengen region banner. Pastor Alina Muchiuro delivered a powerful message that was titled, “You are Well Able.” In Slovakia, we continue our Tuesday prayers for the ladies, and an average of 3 women are faithfully attending the prayer meetings. We also thank the God of Ezekiel very much for the door that has been opened to get our church registered. We continue to ask all believers’ prayers as our Church’s registration in the Slovak Republic will see many doors opening to extend the good news to this nation. As the Slovak Republic, we take pride in being an active member state in the Schengen Region. We are actively involved in planning, organizing and coordinating the upcoming deeper life for the region to be held in the first week of August 2024.


We thank the God of our father E.H Guti for yet another blessed week. We are so excited about our membership which keeps on increasing each week. This week we had two new members; glory be to God. Our Sunday service was very powerful. As we concluded the anniversary month, we held a Quiz on the history of our church, and on general knowledge about our church. With many new members and others joining us this was a great opportunity to share the essence of Forward in Faith with everyone. Our guest speaker Elder Y. Gondwe encouraged us. We are seeing the hand of God, and our cell groups continue to grow and hold midweek services. We thank you for your prayers, we see His goodness in our church each week. Please continue praying for us, we still need physical venues for our church services and also for our finances to grow.


Gujarat – May the grace of the Lord be upon you all. Here in Gujarat, we continue to witness the mighty works of the God of Ezekiel. Our pastors, Takesure and Faith Matthew, traveled back to Vadodara, the mother church, and we held a Monday night online service. On Wednesday, we had a Bible study where people were taught from Baba’s books, aligning with Philippians 4:9. Through the grace of God, students graduated from various programs, and our pastors attended the graduation ceremony to offer support and parental love. We celebrated our graduates with a fellowship on Sunday, where we acknowledged that Ebenezer, the Lord, has brought us this far. Parents who came for the graduation also joined us during our Sunday service. We heard a sermon titled “Faith,” which uplifted the graduates, assuring them that the Lord will continue to guide and provide for them on their next journey. Thank you, and please continue to pray for us here in Gujarat, India.


We thank the God of Ezekiel for yet another blessed week. We continue the weekly services. As the work continues in Guyana, we see the movement of your prayers. On Friday, the church gathered for service online. Sunday service, we had a great Bible study. The word was ministered by Elder Sharon, who spoke about forgiveness. It was a powerful session, and we thank you for your love and prayers.


We thank the God of our father Archbishop Prof Ezekiel Guti for His presence in our church. Our 4am morning Bible study sessions are growing as the believers in Christ are becoming hungry for truth! The believers and new members of the church are well-fed with the Word throughout our weekly activities from Sunday to Saturday. The Ladies Ministry continues to move in fellowship with a recent outing, the ladies had a grand time sharing meals and healthy conversations that will progress the ministry. Our pastors Reverend Dr. Robert Chirima and Mrs. Chirima had a successful couples’ session during an outing with two couples. New members have joined the praise and worship team and are eager to share their talents, praise God! Sunday service was filled with the Holy Spirit as the Sunday sermon was taken over by songs of praise and worship and a message to fully submit ourselves to our God. All glory to God our Father! The church looks forward to preparations for the month of prayer and fasting in June. We ask that you keep praying for us here in Nevis as we are moving to the next step of preparing the land for our new place of worship. May the peace and mercy of God be with all of us, Amen


What an awesome and powerful time we had in our midweek services. On Tuesday we had our Go Quickly and Tell Ladies meeting with Rev Greater Chikwawawa in the United Kingdom via Zoom where she taught us the importance of prayer, unity, love, and Talents. The Sunday service once again was on fire, many testified of what God is doing in their lives. Bible study was facilitated by Pastor Hazel as she continued the teaching from our father’s book Sunday morning bible lectures “Extending the Kingdom of God”. Our worship was truly with a difference, we saw the glory of God. Pastor James preached powerfully under the theme “Take God seriously.” A man who was under the influence of alcohol was on the outside of the church door and our Pastor saw him and invited him in, our Pastor prayed for him and immediately we saw a change in his demeanor. A while later we saw another young man on a bicycle by the church door in distress looking lost, our Pastor went to him and took him to the prayer room, he told our Pastor that he was about to commit suicide but he said somehow his bicycle turned in the direction of this church. Pastor James prayed for him and right there he gave his life to the Lord. We are celebrating the life of this young man hallelujah. We thank God for the great Miracles that He’s doing in our midst, that people can walk off the street into our church and be delivered. Please continue to pray for the church here in Barbados as we continue striving to be true disciples of Jesus Christ.


Douala – We continue to give glory to the God of our father Apostle Ezekiel H. Guti. The week was coupled with home visitations and usual midweek services. A leadership seminar was held on Saturday for Elders, Deacons, and all ministry leaders. On Sunday, Pastor Major taught on the Holy Spirit which was concluded by demonstration as 7 people received the gift of speaking in other tongues. In attendance were 28 people (17 adults, 11 Children, (1 was a visitor). We continued with our culture of fellowship after the Sunday service.

Ebolowa – We thank God Mighty for our Sunday service conducted by Pastor Rose Eyene with 24 people in attendance. Powerful testimonies were shared – one student escaped from an accident that happened in Ebolowa as she was going to school, a big truck lost control killing people, and destroying shops while she was just passing by the market where it happened, and God preserved her life. 50 people gave their lives to Christ at a funeral attendance in the village as Pastor Eyene shared the Word. After Bible study, Deacon Jean Félix Awouma shared the word for the day. We give all the glory to God Almighty for His grace. We continue to extend our need for prayers for church registration.

We want to thank the God of our father Prof E.H Guti for the Music Ministry. The Francistown Music ministry under the Leadership of Overseers T and A Zhou hosted a Praise and worship seminar from the 23rd to the 26th of May. We were truly blessed to have our Deputy Music Director Pastor Anna Chitereka who taught the vision and pattern of Praise and Worship from our father Prof E.H Guti and our mother Apostle Eunor Guti’s teachings, with the use also of the books written by our father Prof E.H Guti. Pathway to praise and worship, Importance of knowing your area, Precious things, African Apostle.

Pastor A Chitereka was accompanied by Elder Mrs Moyo from Bulawayo BRC District. Our Province will never remain the same again. We give glory to the God of Ezekiel.


ZOC- We are so thankful to God for the great works He continues to do in Zambia through the fellowship of students.

In total 157 souls (65 being university students) came to the serving knowledge of God and received Jesus as their Lord and personal Savior, 8 people were baptized in water on the Sunday of the outreach. 5 people were Spirit-filled. The outreach has led to the birth of ZAOGA on Campus University of Zambia. We applaud the Overseers of Lusaka East province for accommodating the students who were camped at the Eastgate church. The support for the students’ ministry from the National Administrator is amazing. We give glory to the God of Ezekiel Guti.

The ZAOGA Forward in Faith Youth Ministry continues to operate as a dynamic, vital force, empowered by the divine providence of their esteemed father, Professor Ezekiel Handinawangu Guti. This past weekend bore witness to a flurry of impactful activities across Zimbabwe, including the “Zvinhu Izvo” initiatives that are kindling enthusiasm and unity among the nation’s youth communities. In the Mt. Darwin Province, the “Zvinhu Izvo” Project convened a sizeable gathering in Rushinga, drawing participants from the surrounding areas of Shiloh, Mt. Darwin Local Church, and Goshen. Pastor D&S Mhonga delivered an inspiring address, urging the young attendees to embrace the virtues of diligence and perseverance, while advisors from Zone 13 and Bindura lent their steadfast support. Concurrently, Zone 19 in Chiredzi hosted a successful “Train a Leader” seminar and “Zvinhu Izvo” Launch event at the Tshovani Local Mother Church. An impressive 182 members from various districts gathered, invigorated by the insightful messages delivered by Elders Ngonidzashe and Adinah Takawira. The youth demonstrated their unwavering dedication by contributing cheerfully towards their project target, while a 49-person leadership seminar equipped the next generation of community leaders. Across these vibrant events, a unifying theme emerges – the transformative power of youth-led initiatives to foster unity, empowerment and a drive for positive change.

As the Zimbabwe Youth Ministry, we are grateful to the God of our Father E.H Guti for a power-packed second edition of the National Youth Advisors Seminar, which took place at AMFCC from 23 to 26 May 2024. The attendance started with 70 delegates on the first day and escalated to more than 380 on the last day. We received powerful teachings from our Father and Mother Apostle Dr. Joe Guti and Pastor Nyasha. Bishop W. & Dr. Getrude Rupapa, Pastors Chikono, Mauye, Mucharwa and other notable Elders-Advisors, added to the lineup of speakers. God spoke the same message through all these speakers; that being the pillars of love, genuine fear of God and much emphasis on prayer. Youth Advisors had great time soaked in prayer. We believe that after this conference, we will never be the same again, as we are geared to implement these teachings to the young people.
