We have had yet another wonderful week in Japan by the never-ending grace of God. Our church elected the first ever Leadership Committee to govern its administration. We were able to appoint 7 members into various roles of leadership. The process was led by our Pastors, Pastors Farai and Tsitsi Kupamhama from China. In the same week, we held our first leadership training workshop to fully equip the team for the work assigned to them by God. The teachings were centred on our church doctrine, which is based on Scripture. On another note, the Pastors led us in a series of teachings about the Holy Spirit. We had a session of baptism in the Holy Spirit, and yet another session of spiritual gifts impartation. We truly felt the power and the move of the Holy Spirit; and we are certain that the Holy Spirit is going to lead us in power into our soul winning mission. We continue to thank the God of our father Ezekiel for His grace on our lives. Thank you for your prayers.

TEACHING: PART OF BABA & AMAI’S MESSAGE
An excerpt from the History book
“What makes this ministry unique? What is the secret?
We preach the full gospel of Jesus Christ followed by signs and wonders. This is the secret of the Book of Acts. They preached the full gospel with, Christ being centred.
They were anointed and filled with the Holy Spirit.
They knew the power and their authority to use the name ]esus.
Therefore I say preach the word; it will prevail. (Acts 19:20, Acts 6:8; Acts 12:24).
The word, the Holy Spirit and the Name Jesus is the secret…” God bless you.
We love you and are praying for you,
Apostle Drs Steve & La-Verne Simukai
