We thank the God of our father Ezekiel Guti for the powerful service on Sunday, February 11, in the Dominican Republic. We are seeing the goodness of God. The parents of the 35 new children are coming to the Church. and we thank the God of Ezekiel Guti for the students of the Dominican Republic who are already at AMFCC Bible school. We ask for prayer so that the Church continues to grow and produce more pastors so that the work of God continues to spread in the Dominican Republic.


We thank God as the Schengen Europe Girls of Quality. The God of Ezekiel granted us the opportunity to hold the first GOQ conference after a few years. From Friday the 9th to Sunday the 11th of February, under the leadership of Pastor Alina Muchiuro and Overseer Aquinata de Haas, many girls travelled from across Europe to gather in Warsaw, Poland for a transformational conference. About 50 girls physically attended each session with about 34 online connections. The conference was a time of revival and refreshing of our spirits. The girls were taught much about salvation, personal development and grooming, marriage preparation, and how to live faithfully as Kingdom young women. We had various speakers from Germany, Poland, Netherlands, and Romania impacting life-changing teachings. On Saturday night, during a Deliverance and Holy Spirit session, 2 girls were delivered of various issues, 6 rededicated their lives to Christ, 2 received the gift of the Holy Spirit, whilst many were refilled. Moreover, 10 girls gave their lives to Christ during the conference. God moved mightily over the weekend and many miracles were witnessed. It can only be the hand of the God of Ezekiel. The conference was filled with joy, fellowship, and love amongst the girls. The God of Ezekiel is doing mighty works in the Schengen region and the girls have been empowered for a prosperous Kingdom life. Schengen Europe GOQ will never be the same again.


We express our gratitude to the God of our father Apostle Ezekiel Guti for His unwavering favor in Russia. Despite the harsh weather conditions of -20 degrees 25 people managed to attend services. The Sunday service was powerful with Brother Thomas ministering to the church on focusing our direction on God. We also had wonderful Deeper Life feedback online. Thank you for your prayers. God is doing mighty things in Russia through the students. We receive so many testimonies every week on the goodness of the God of Ezekiel.


The God of Ezekiel continues to show Himself faithful to our nation. This week we met on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for Deeper Life feedback from our Pastors. We had an average of 30 people logging in per service and it was life-changing. On Tuesday ladies met for Tuesday prayer and couples had a service on Thursday with 11 gadgets logging in. On Saturday the youth also met for a service and 15 people attended the service. Sunday service was on another level, with a total attendance of 53, 13 people onsite and 40 online. During Bible study, Pastor Learnie gave feedback on discipleship and what is expected of one. Surely, we are being transformed daily, glory to God! Later Elder Clive taught powerfully about the God of impossibilities. After the sermon, people came forward to be prayed for and many testified that their lives would never be the same again. We are receiving many testimonies of the great things that the God of Ezekiel is doing in people’s lives daily. Thank you for praying for us as we pray for you.


We are grateful to the God of Ezekiel for His continued faithfulness in our nation. Throughout this week we were excited to hear rich feedback from the international Pastors’ Deeper Life conference. Then on Saturday 10 February, we had a fruitful leaders meeting which had a 97% attendance. On Sunday 11 February, Deacon Claire was the forerunner and Pastor Rutendo delivered powerful feedback on Home Talents and Protecting our Well. There were 37 members present plus 3 children and 11 online viewers. The Ambassador of Zimbabwe to Malaysia H.E. Mrs C. Chemwayi and her Husband were part of the audience. One couple presented a microwave oven to the church and a wall clock. There was also great joy after the announcement of Deacon Audrey’s wedding that will be on 23 March. After the service, we had time for refreshments and fellowship. We highly appreciate your prayers and support.


With gratitude to the God of our father, we are witnessing His blessings in Mauritius. Our church’s weekly activities are flourishing with active member engagement. Following a powerful week of prayer and fasting, FIF Mauritius continues to pray steadfastly in alignment with the Apostles’ Update guidance. The women persist in their online Tuesday prayer meetings. Sunday’s service was remarkable, featuring an impactful sermon titled “Aligning with the Father’s Heart” delivered by one of our Elders under the theme “The Burden of the Father’s Heart.” Our congregation continues to grow, a testament to God’s presence in Mauritius. Last week, we had 75 attendees, including children, and this week, we had 50 adults and 13 children. We deeply appreciate and are grateful for your ongoing prayers.



We give glory to the God our father Professor E.H Guti that we managed to hold our first FAMB Leadership Training Seminar for this year on Saturday the 10th of February 2024. The focus of the seminar was to equip the various FAMB boards both at the provincial and district and regional levels in our province. 52 leaders, drawn from the various districts in our province, were in attendance, glory to God! The International directors, Pastors Hilary and Jestina Nyakutya were some of the speakers. They spelt out the FAMB vision which is to help families in ZAOGA FIF with teachings, guidance, and counseling and therefore these leaders played a crucial role in rolling out programs to achieve this in their various places. After the seminar, many of the attendees testified that they had not understood the FAMB vision before and committed themselves to go and implement it. It was indeed a remarkable seminar and after this Westgate Province will never be the same again.


Guruve Province is witnessing the mighty hand of God on our church service. The Local Mother Church is no longer accommodating believers on Sunday services. God is mightily using our Overseer Tich Nyamuzinga with the help of the Local Pastor Amos Maseko. Deliverance is at its peak. Last Wednesday a blind young lady had her eyes opened after being prayed for by Overseer Tich. She had been taken to witch doctors, some demanded that if she saw she would be taken as a wife. All witch doctors failed to restore her sight. She was told to come to ZAOGA Guruve Local Mother Church. The God of our father Ezekiel Handinawangu Guti is still healing. After being prayed for her eyesight was restored. This has now caused people in the vicinity to bring the blind, the oppressed, and those sick from various diseases to be prayed for. This Sunday another old woman who was totally blind also started seeing, glory be to God. New converts are coming to the Lord.

AMFCC Part-time

We thank the God of our father, Apostle Professor E. H. Guti for allowing us to achieve yet another milestone, where we successfully held our Annual International Teachers’ Seminar, from the 9th to the 11th of February 2024. The Seminar saw a maximum attendance of over 700 delegates. All 19 Zones found in Zimbabwe were represented. More to it, the Seminar also saw the attendance of international delegates from Australia, Canada, Malawi, South Africa, Zambia, United Arab Emirates, Namibia, Lesotho, Uganda, Nigeria, DRC, Zambia, and Rwanda. We are happy to report that God also gave us grace by allowing our father, Apostle Dr J. Guti and mother Pastor N. Guti to grace the occasion, where our father emphasized on the need for all teachers to understand their role, according to the vision given to the servant and apostle of God, Professor E. H. Guti. He went on to reiterate that all teachers needed to stay in the pattern and preserve the legacy of the bond servant of God, Apostle Professor E. H. Guti, even as we continue to practice to be true disciples who remain rooted and grounded in the doctrine of our church in unity, love, prayer, and the fear of God. The other speakers for the Seminar were SG Apostle M. Nyambo, Bishop Dr W. Rupapa, Dr J. Mlambo, Dr. E. Chizeya and amai, and Rev. J. Dhlakama. They were all mightily used by God, as was evidenced by the powerful move of God whenever each one of them stood to teach. As usual, we ask that you continue to pray for us so that we may do our work according to the vision given to our father, Professor Ezekiel Guti.


We thank the God of our father Professor E.H Guti for His unending love towards us.

Evangelist Chibvongo managed to raise a significant amount of money through the attendees which he handed over to the Senga church for plumbing of their new church toilets. Senga district church will never be the same again.

Seke Central

Seke central province Local Mother church. We are so thankful to the God of our Father Archbishop Ezekiel Guti for allowing us to go to Bindura to pray. A group of over 180 people was led by our overseer Dennis Masunda to pray after a week of prayer and fasting. We engaged in intense prayer after a powerful encouragement from our overseer enlightening us on the importance of praying at such a sacred place where it all began with his servant. There were powerful testimonies from people who received physical and emotional healing, some saw visions, and some got instant answers to their prayers. Several words of prophecy were received strengthening the church of God. Some testimonies:
A lady was healed from a neck pain she said she felt something like electricity moving on the neck and was healed instantly.
Another lady testified total healing from a backache and body aches. Glory be to God.
Indeed, the God of Ezekiel is still performing miracles. Seke 2 Local Mother Church shall not remain the same. Thank you for praying for Chitungwiza.
