We give glory to the Lord God of Ezekiel. Our 3rd Deeper Life 2024 kicked off on a high note from Thursday 4th July to Sunday 7th July in Vancouver British Columbia. Exactly one year after our father Archbishop Prof. Dr. Ezekiel H. Guti, was promoted to glory. An average attendance of 180 delegates in person and 70 on Zoom from the 3 regions nationwide. The Legacy Continues” Sunday 194 adults and 21 children in person and 132 gadgets were logged in.

Many people were delivered from various conditions such as migraine headaches, side pains, and other ailments. There was a great ministration of the Holy Spirit. 46 people received the gift with the evidence of speaking in tongues. 5 people gave their lives to Jesus Christ. The leaders were equipped, empowered, and revived. Canada’s leadership will never be the same again. Glory to God!


The New York City Miracle Center church, joined by our sister assembly, the New Jersey Restoration Center, had an amazing Super Sunday service with over 60 people in attendance. Our Father, the International Executive Chairman of ZAOGA Forward in Faith Ministries International, Apostle Dr. Joseph Joe Guti, and our Mother, Pastor Nyasha Guti visited the assembly for the first time, turning the place into one cauldron of immense joy, deliverance, healing, breakthroughs, people receiving Jesus Christ as their personal Savior!! The Lord used our Father and our mother mightily, pointing out by Word of Knowledge issues in people’s lives. What a blessing! The legacy lives on!


Lilongwe Highly Favoured province held its successful Third Deeper Life Conference, in Lilongwe, from 3 to 7 July 2024. Bishop Sebenzile and Rev Sithabile Msiza and Elders Fombe and Fungie Makwenje were guest speakers. The conference was attended by Elders, Deacons, and lay leaders and the attendance rose to 58. The final day of the conference, which was also a big Sunday was attended by 101 people, including child evangelism. One person received Christ on the Big Sunday. Zomba province, a newly established province in the country also joined the Deeper Life Conference. The teachings during the conference were premised on laying a solid foundation to equip leaders for church growth. The delegates also benefitted from teachings on leadership, prayer, talents, giving, ministering, chain of multiplication, deliverance, and baptism of the Holy Spirit. Five people were baptized in the Holy Spirit evidenced by speaking in other tongues. The rich teachings entrenched in the doctrine and pattern of our church will take our Province to another level. We are grateful to the God of Ezekiel for mightily using the speakers to address the needs of our church. Our prayer is for increased growth of the work of God in Malawi.


The God of Ezekiel has continued to show Himself strong on our behalf in our nation. This week the pastors Mazuru went to Pattaya city for soul winning. One lady, a Thai national received Jesus Christ as her personal Saviour. She was addicted to marijuana and alcohol, and after being ministered to, she surrendered it all and was delivered. Her mother who, had pains in her leg and was struggling to walk, after prayer was healed and began walking normally, glory to the God of Ezekiel! We had our Believer’s prayer convention from Thursday night, with 38 gadgets logging in and Deacon Mataruse from Cambodia preached powerfully. On Friday we had a hybrid service, with 18 people gathering onsite and 34 online. Deacon Bernadette preached powerfully. Pastor Rodney also taught powerfully. We spent the whole day in prayer on Saturday with 24 people onsite and 38 people online. We received powerful teachings from Elders Victor and Farie. Faith clinic was conducted and people went for counseling with the pastors and elders. In the evening Pastor Rodney taught on discipleship and we had a lot of time to pray. The spirit of prayer was in our midst and some people were prayed for and received deliverance. Sunday service was also very powerful. We had a total attendance of 70 people, with 45 online and 25 onsite. We had two visitors, one Thai lady who is promising to become a member and another Zimbabwean lady living in Bangkok. Deacon Nyasha preached powerfully using Baba’s book, Dissatisfaction because of the sense of Eden. Later pastor Rodney also spoke on the same topic and people were ministered to in a mighty way. We had Holy Communion and after the service, two people were water baptized, one of them, a local who gave her life to Christ a couple of weeks ago. We give God all the glory for His faithfulness. Thank you for continuing to pray for the church registration process, as we continue praying for you.


We are so grateful to the God of our father as we announce with great pleasure that the National Youth and Young Adults “Xtreme Heirs” Conference from the 4th to the 7th of July 2024 in Perth Western Australia was a great success. It was a one-of-a-kind conference and youth and Young adults from all the States and territories of Australia as well as outside countries came in numbers to this Conference. The Conference was unique since we had in attendance, The Bishop and General Overseer, Dr B.S Masaka, our Hosting Overseers, the Komboras, the Ministry Advisors, Overseers Mawoko, the National Youth Directors, the Varipanos, our Youth Pastors and Advisors in their numbers. Our Guest Speakers Overseers Ed & Eddy Chizeya were mightily used by God. The Conference was rich in the Word as every speaker including Youth Speakers was mightily used by God. As a result, 90 people rededicated their lives to Christ, 9 encountered the miracle of salvation and 9 decided to make Forward in Faith their home. 56 people were filled by the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues for the first time. Many others were refilled and received gifts of the Holy Spirit. During the Holy Spirit session on Saturday night, the power of the Holy Spirit filled the auditorium and almost everyone was slain by the power of God and people laughed in the Spirit. This continued for hours even after the Service. There was Faith Clinic and young people had time to pour out and some brought things to be burnt and destroyed. God uniquely cleansed His Church throughout the Conference. We thank the God of Ezekiel and we believe Australia will never remain the same. Subjects such as Becoming a person of value, the power of the Word, The power of the blood of Jesus, Forgiveness, Salvation, the Importance of the Books of the Church, Serving, the dangers of Substance misuse, the requirements of being a true member of the church of FIFMI and many others were taught. One of the many highlights was the Gospel Explosion sessions. This is where young evangelists preach and minister deliverance and healing with the demonstration of power. This year two Teams of 4 were given the opportunity and God used them mightily. Indeed, the Legacy continues. Special mention to the Legacy Night concert for the opening night on Friday. The vision was to remember our father Ezekiel Handinawangu Guti as Friday, July 5 marked exactly a year after his promotion to glory. This included a spoken word and some of Baba’s most loved songs. We also launched our missions project for the year 2024/25 which is to support the islands with their first-ever national youth conference in December in Honiara, Solomon Islands. It is our goal to make this a success as part of our Youth-to-Youth evangelism. On Sunday we were highly privileged to have the father of the Nation, the Bishop, Dr Stanley Budirirayi Masaka speak to us as the youth. Truly, this was a Conference like no other. God moved, God spoke and we know that we will never remain the same. Thank you for praying for us. As the Emerging Generation in Australia, we are ready. #THELEGACYCONTINUESDOWNUNDER.


Douala City continues to give glory to the God of our father Apostle Ezekiel H. Guti. The church joined the rest of the ZAOGA FIFMI for prayer convention which started on Thursday through to Sunday and it saw people camping at church for the period. Key emphasis was on Isaiah 58 which encouraged believers to get into faith clinic sessions with our Pastors Major and Ruponiso Nyamukuvhengu. People poured out their hearts and were prayed for. On the last night after teaching about the Spiritual Gifts, there was a mighty move of the Holy Spirit which ended up with the impartation of Spiritual gifts. Sunday church service was conducted which ended with a Holy Communion session and Fellowship. Sunday Attendance: 16 people (13 adults 3 children). Prayer requests:- Registration of the Church in Cameroon and new converts to be allowed to attend church by their parents and some by their husbands).


We thank the God of Ezekiel for His faithfulness in our nation of Guyana as we continue with our weekly services. On Monday morning, men, women, and children gathered at our church to build the church with the constructors. Women and children were helping to carry the blocks while men were mixing the mortar. This was after some of our believers had contributed the bags of cement when our pastor preached about missions, and their hearts were stirred up, and they gave towards the building of our church. We give glory to God. Friday, we had an online service, which our pastor preached very powerfully. God moved so that even when the closing prayer was done, people continued to be online, being ministered by the Holy Spirit to the extent of not closing the service until God was done with his people. We give glory to God. We also want to thank God for adding us to another MOI from Zimbabwe, as we now have one new couple who are Zimbabweans. Sunday, we had a powerful service. Thank you for your prayers as you continue to pray for the construction of our church building.


We want to thank the God of our Father for allowing us to join the rest of the FIFMI family worldwide in the June month of prayer and fasting. Indeed, Cyprus will never be the same again. In addition to the normal Convention services, we had prayer every morning at 5 am and we had an average of 50 gadgets log in throughout the month. The prayer conventions brought refreshment and rejuvenation to us all. During the conventions, we had time for faith clinic which allowed us to pour out all that has been troubling us. They were very successful and impactful. The month of June is indeed a month to thank God for, here in FIF Cyprus because not only did He allow us to be blessed, refreshed, realigned, and impacted with new spiritual gifts. But we were so honored and privileged to receive short-term Missionaries, Pastors Power, and Linda Sibanda with much joy and gladness in our hearts. We were privileged to have them as our guest speakers for the Believers prayer convention which included a very powerful all-night service on Friday the 28th where Pastor Power Sibanda preached a life-changing message. On Saturday Pastor Linda also ministered to the girls and had time to teach girls about home talents as well. This was then followed by a very powerful big Sunday at the national level where people came from different cities to our Lefkosa Tabernacle having a total attendance of over 200 people. Pastor Power spoke, and we had a deliverance session after which he prayed and blessed us. We also want to thank the God of Ezekiel that besides the prayer convention we had more than thirty (30) of our believers graduating from different universities, we give glory to this God of Ezekiel for continuing to grow and sustain FIF Cyprus.



As ZOC, in the spirit of continuing to hold on firmly to the teachings of our father, a team of 122 Students, young evangelists, from Chinhoyi University of Technology, went for an outreach to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as mandated by Mathew 28:19, from 22nd to the 30th of June 2024 in Kenzamba and Obva Areas under Chinhoyi Province. We thank the God of Ezekiel as He allowed us to conduct door-to-door evangelism and night crusade services in our quest to preach the Kingdom of God and win souls. A cumulative total of over 583 people gave their lives to Christ. During the door-to-door evangelism, a lot of practical deliverance took place right from the first day as Jesus Christ set His people free by word of command and laying on of hands:
A woman with a partial stroke that had paralyzed her right side was set free.
Gogo Changara who was crippled for some years received her healing and she is now walking.
Another woman who had suffered from leg pain for two years was prayed for and healed.
A lady who suffered from bleeding (Menstruation Problem) got healed instantly.
Mai Gwembiri, in Obva, was healed from back pain.
God allowed us to burn charms and clothes that were presented to us by different new believers during the week.
A young lady and a boy suffering from chest pains were healed after being prayed for during the night services.
A lady who was divorced from her husband reunited with him during the outreach week after being prayed for.
Many people who were suffering from stomach pains and headaches got healed in the name of Jesus Christ after being prayed for.
On Saturday 29 June 2024, a total of 53 people were water baptized. On Sunday 30 June 2024, God’s visitation was powerful amongst us, and He allowed 210 people to attend, 26 people gave their lives to Christ and 47 people were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues. We had a very good time of fellowship with other new coverts on Sunday after service and sharing the love of God. We thank the God of our father so much for the many souls He allowed to be won, and for all the miracles he wrought amongst us, ultimately strengthening His Church during the week of evangelism as We continue to HOLD ON FIRMLY TO THE TEACHINGS OF OUR FATHER. 1 Cor 15:2. The outreach was coordinated by our Outreach Head of departments; Tinotenda Zindoga and Tanaka Dhamu, under the leadership of our Chairman; Peace Kuyeri, and the invaluable guidance of our Pastors; Douglas Bvunzawabaya, Eddie Sigauke, and the blessing of our Overseer, the captain of the winning team; Overseer Masikini.


Praise be to the God of our Father Apostle Prof. E.H Guti, who allowed us to hold a successful Zone 1 Annual Teachers Seminar under the leadership of our Child Evangelism Directors Pastors Petros and Regina Dope from the 5th to the 7th of July 2024 at ZAOGA Mvuma District Church. The seminar was attended by 5 pastors, 5 student pastors from Amfcc and 87 teachers with many all over the World joining online. Our speakers the Children’s church International Directors and pastor O. Tshuma took turns to teach the several subjects. There was a great move of the presence of God at the Conference and many people were healed and delivered. Child Evangelism Ministry will never be the same again after such a powerful and reviving seminar equipping the Teachers to be relevant in this technological era where children are more centered on technology than any other thing. We thank the God of our Father Apostle Prof. E.H Guti.


On Friday the 5th of July Kambuzuma District hosted its first Miracle Night with their Dps Andrew and Mavis Masocha. The Evangelist Mutinhima ministered. A substantial number from the district was in attendance also visitors from outside Harare. One lady came from Gokwe and there were also 5 people from Hurungwe. People were prayed for and delivered from demons. Afterwards, everyone was led in prayer, speaking in tongues and praising God. He then left time for people to testify what God had done during the miracle night and below are the testimonies of those who testified:
Three women were healed from chest pains. One of them could not lift anything heavy, after she was prayed for she managed to carry her baby on her back something that she could not do for a long time
A woman was healed from stomach cramps and a painful hand.
A lady was healed from chest pains and back pain after many years.

Kingdom Life:
Matt 15:34 Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?”
And they said, “Seven, and a few little fish.”

Matt 17:27 Nevertheless, lest we offend them, go to the sea, cast in a hook, and take the fish that comes up first. And when you have opened its mouth, you will find a piece of money; take that and give it to them for Me and you.”

God will multiply money and meet your needs, you will not join others crying or having boyfriends to have money. I am walking in that miracle when I need money for the work of God, I see money coming.
God keeps His covenant with His servant upon His children of ZAOGA FIFMI. Young lady, there is no need to sell your body. God has not failed. Jesus came saying repent for the kingdom of God has arrived…. God bless you.

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