Dear Friends,


We really 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 as well as from our WhatsApp group. Sunday, 18 February 2024, recorded a powerful service hosted at one of the believer’s residence. We recorded an awesome attendance of 11 adults and 5 children. The people testified the goodness of God in their lives even as we are in a foreign land. We had a great Bible study on “Extending the Kingdom of God” as extracted from “Sunday Morning Lectures”. The Bible study was followed by powerful praise and worship, and lastly, the word of God. After the service, we had time to share food and get to know each other. We continue to see the hand of the God of Ezekiel in all our gatherings. The church continues to pray for a proper venue for our services. May the saints continue to pray with us for pastoral presence to take care of the baby church in this part of Central Europe.


We had powerful services in the nation of Russia. Our Deacon Natasha preached on the power of the Holy Spirit. She encouraged the church to be deeply rooted in the doctrine of the church and that we should love our church. 36 members attended in person and 11 online. Indeed, God is doing great things in Russia. We continue to see good consistency in our prayer meetings and Bible sessions. We thank God for the spiritual growth of our members. The GOQ and BOT are being empowered through their weekly prayer meetings. Continue praying for the church for more and more souls to be added unto us.


North London- We thank the God of our Father Ezekiel for His visitation as North London Province Go Quickly and Tell Ministry during the weekend of the 9th to the 11th of February 2024. We had a power-packed prayer retreat with our Overseer Kundai Chibwana and her regional pastors, Pastor Tracy Maseko, Pastor Susan Zisengwe, and invited Pastor Lisa Dongo. Pastor Lisa was used mightily as she taught the Holy Spirit differently and uniquely. We had a few ladies who were filled with the Holy Spirit for the first time, and many were refilled with new tongues. There was a big move of the presence of God. The retreat saw an attendance of over 150 ladies. We were blessed with feedback from the Pastors Deeper Life Conference. There was a thick move of the Holy Spirit as our Overseer was teaching, and deliverance took place. During testimony time, many ladies testified of the Holy Spirit, giving them a word, healing from chronic diseases, emphasis on unity, and God restoring children unto their parents. Some testified of having received healing at the retreat and some of how they had received guidance concerning issues happening in their lives. The move of God was evident in the auditorium, and we continue to give all the Glory to the God of Ezekiel, who is forever faithful as He remembered us at our prayer retreat as ladies.


Glory be to God of our father Ezekiel Guti for His goodness and His Favor upon our nation. We are so grateful and honoured to hear powerful speakers whom God used during Deeper Life. We received feedback from our Overseers and Pastors and watched some of the video clips, it was indeed life-changing. Truly FIFMI cannot come to an end, God is keeping His church in practicing to be true disciples who are rooted, and grounded in the doctrine of the church in unity, love, and the fear of God. To serve God wholeheartedly. All services were well attended. The church is doing very well. Feedback attendance was good from 11th-18th.15 people repented and 6 were water baptised. Many people were delivered and sick people were prayed for. Thank you for your prayers.


As we continue the Tuesday prayers and the 5:00 am devotion, we give thanks to God. We also started our home cell groups, which are held in different homes. On Wednesday we had dinner for couples, and after dinner, our pastor offered a lesson on how to live as couples. Six couples attended the dinner. On Friday, we had a stirring service. The speaker shared her testimony that she had a stomach issue that made her not eat well and she would feel as if something was punching her inside the stomach but after Pastor Fanuel prayed for her, she was healed instantly. Our Sunday service was hosted by the youth. Pastor Fanuel carried out a Bible study. He also encouraged the parents to get involved on social media so that they can relate to their children and also that the church must use the social media platform for doing relevant things. We had two forerunners from the Youth followed by the Youth advisor, Elder Sherryann, who delivered the message from one of our church books entitled ‘Get Your Reward’. It had a great impact; we thank you for your prayer.


All praise and glory to the God of our Father Ezekiel Guti. We in Nevis are excited as we welcome back our Pastors Dr. Robert Chirima and Pastor Ratie from the Pastors’ Deeper Life conference held in Zimbabwe. The service was electric as Dr. Robert Chirima delivered a powerful word from Philippians 4 vs 9 which talked about the things that we learnt, received, and heard. The church also had the opportunity to visit one of the members’ home right after service because the husband was not feeling well and Pastor prayed for him and God delivered him, and he promised to come to church on Sunday. The church also presented a food hamper to them. Praise be to the God of our father. Continue to pray for us here in Nevis.



On the 16th of February graduates from various universities converged for the first prayer retreat at Highfields revival church. Universities represented were University of Zimbabwe, National University of Science and Technology, Chinhoyi University of Technology, Harare Institute of Technology, Midlands State University Gweru, Zvishavane and Mutare, Womens University, Zimbabwe Ezekiel Guti University, and Bindura University. The first event of the year pulled out congregants across the nation of Zimbabwe and with a total number of 248 attendees, it was such a great and life-transforming event as our Director Dr. A Gudyanga delivered a powerful message on Genuine fear of God as we walk in the kingdom of God. Faith clinic was conducted, and a lot of people poured their lives after the Apostle’s teaching. After faith clinic people engaged in a powerful prayer for the ministry which led to God speaking and a total of 18 people were given the word from the Lord for the strengthening of the ministry, glory be to God.

Music Ministry

We are grateful to the God of our Father Professor E.H Guti as Music Ministry as we witnessed the mighty hand of God during our National Leadership Seminar held from the 16th to 18th of February 2024 at AMFCC. The event targeted various boards from District to National levels including Music pastors. The average attendance on Friday and Saturday was 240 whilst on Sunday it increased to 396. The delegates were drawn from about 47 out of 57 Zimbabwean provinces. Among the delegates were two internationals from Rwanda and Uganda respectively. Some leaders from other nations also followed the event virtually. It was a power-packed event during which the vision of the Ministry was spelled out through several teachings by various speakers. From the onset, on Friday evening as the Deputy Director sang the song “Sweet Jesus” a thick cloud of the presence of God was witnessed. Evangelist Mavhunga ministered powerfully on Saturday evening and the power of God touched many people who fell under the power of the Holy Spirit. We give glory to God as on the same day, our IEC Apostle Dr. Joseph J. Guti and our mother Pastor Nyasha graced the event, and our father pronounced a blessing upon the congregation. On Sunday, Dr. La-Verne Simukai delivered a powerful message culminating in an outpour of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit moved in a mighty way and almost all leaders were slain by the power of God bursting into holy laughter. Some would just fall under the power of the Holy Spirit by themselves. Prophetic messages were received during the outpouring. It was indeed a remarkable seminar and after this, Music Ministry will not remain the same.

Child Evangelism

We would like to thank the God of our father Ezekiel Guti for a successful inaugural first-ever Children’s Church Superintendents’ Conference which was held at Kuwadzana Wings of Prayer Church in Harare from the 16th to 18th of February. Overseer W. Jaricha, District Pastor T. Runyowa, Children’s Church Director Pastor P. Dope, KMD Director Pastor T. Maduche, Pastor C. Mapunga, and Pastor Katsande were the speakers who took turns to teach and deliver powerful teachings on the Ministry Vision, Children’s Church, Kingdom Music and Dance, Understanding O.D.C.F, Good working relationship with leaders and Deliverance. A total number of 248 delegates from around the Country attended the Conference. The conference was attended by delegates from different Towns and Cities which includes Beitbridge, Bindura, Bulawayo, Chegutu, Chinhoyi, Chivhu, Gweru, Kadoma, Kwekwe, Masvingo, Zvishavane to mention just but a few. Many delegates were delivered from different kinds of bondages and the presence of God was witnessed in each session. We want to thank God so much for this unique Conference, the majority of the delegates were Church Elders. The conference was an eye-opener to both delegates and the Child Evangelism Ministry leadership. The conference gave a strong footing to the current ministry leadership and those who will follow after this generation.
