Dear Friends,


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 as well as from our WhatsApp group. Sunday, 3 March 2024, recorded a powerful service as hosted at one of the believers’ residences. We recorded an awesome attendance of 12 adults and 2 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 “Who you are in Christ” 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 fellowship. 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. We are also grateful because we now have Pastors remotely taking care of us. This has really motivated us in the Lord.


We thank the God of our Father, and we continue the Tuesday prayer and the 5:00 am devotion. Sunday services were powerful. We had a great Bible study on “Extending the Kingdom of God” as extracted from “Sunday Morning Bible Lectures. The Bible study was followed by the people testifying the goodness of God, Deacon Terrence was admitted to the hospital and the Pastor went there and prayed for him. He is now home and feeling well, our female pastors testified about their Female Pastor’s retreat. Following praise and worship, Deacon Shampkin preached about Faith that works, she encouraged the congregation to activate faith in whatever we do scriptures were quoted to demonstrate the goodness of God in faith. Continue to pray for us here in Guyana.


We give thanks to the God of our Father Ezekiel Guti for His abiding grace continues to abound with Nevis. On Tuesday the ladies’ ministry visited some of the ladies who haven’t been coming for a while to ladies’ prayer. We gave them a food hamper, prayed with them, and encouraged them in the word of God. To God be the glory it was very productive. Sunday Service was very powerful as we experienced the presence of the Holy Spirit moving in our midst. Our Pastor Dr. Robert Chirima continues the teaching of being a true disciple as our Father Ezekiel Guti taught us to be. Please continue to pray for Nevis.


Morning Glory from Monday to Friday continues to have 14-20 gadgets logged in for prayer as well as our Monday evening prayer from 6-7 pm for lost souls and the work of God. Go Quickly Ladies meeting and Prayer was well attended with 12 gadgets across the assemblies. Wednesday 13 people attended Bible study. Our Friday services in Independence Assembly continued with 6 gadgets connected. On Sunday in Punta Gorda, the message was delivered by Sister Idra Caal, representing the younger generation. She eloquently spoke on persistence and faith, drawing inspiration from the biblical account of “the Destruction of Jericho ” found in Joshua 6:7-20. The Independence Assembly had a very exciting time in the presence of God. Belize City mother assembly had Elder Orin sharing on “How to Pray in our bible study session. Word on practicing to be a true disciple who remains rooted and grounded in the church was shared encouraging us to walk in the love of God. A total of 36 people attended across the Nation. To God be all the glory.


We want to thank the God of our Father Ezekiel Handinawangu Guti, for responding to the call and cry of Germany and Schengen Nations, for a resident Pastor. We were so excited and so full of joy to welcome Senior Pastors GTC and Sesedzai Mutsigwa. We were also honoured by the presence of Bishop Joshua and Mabel Samasuwo, who officially introduced the Pastors. The next Sunday some saints in and around Germany came over to Hannover to attend the service. The Bishop presented the new Pastors and preached about fleeing from sin as we hold onto the theme of the year. The church ended with a fellowship as the saints broke bread together with the Bishops, new Pastors as well as Pastors Dirk and Aquinata De Haas, who also graced the occasion from Holland. There was so much joy and jubilation as the church is grateful to receive a resident Pastor. The God of our father Ezekiel is indeed faithful.


We thank the God of our father Ezekiel H. Guti who gave us grace as the Schengen Go Quickly & Tell to hold our prayer retreat from 1-3 March, organized by the Pastoral team. The Retreat was hosted by Germany, in Hannover. The arrival of the Senior Pastors Mutsigwa, a weekend before the prayer retreat was a timely blessing, as Senior Pastor Sesedzai Mutsigwa became the main speaker at the retreat. More than 40 women and girls gathered from Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, and Switzerland with a hunger to seek the Lord at the Karaman Hotel in Hannover, Germany. Senior Pastor Sessie delivered powerful teachings on working our character, and on prayer. All speakers taught from the books written by our father Archbishop E.H Guti and our Mom Archbishop Eunor Guti. The presence of God was with us as the Holy Spirit convicted ladies to repent and allow God to heal their hearts and direct them to be better in their various roles. One lady received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and many ladies were delivered from various spirits including anger and unforgiveness. Indeed, the Region will never be the same. Thank you for praying for us as we pray for you.


We would like to thank the God of our father, Ezekiel Guti, for the BOT National prayer retreat held this past weekend at Ezekiel Guti Convention Centre in Birmingham. The boys came from across the nation and gathered at EGCC from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd. Despite the cold and wet weekend, the boys came for prayer. On Friday, our National BOT Pastor, Pastor Blessing Mutingwa, took time to explain to the boys the nature and the purpose of prayer retreat as taught by our father and mother Archbishop Professor Ezekiel H Guti and Archbishop Professor Eunor Guti. This led to a special time of reading the Word and pouring out our lives. The boys prayed till the early hours of the morning. We thank the God of our father for giving us such an opportunity as boys. Overseer Abisha Forest also graced our prayer retreat and encouraged the boys to fear God and be true disciples of our father, Archbishop Professor Ezekiel Guti. There was a Holy Spirit session on Saturday evening and we thank God for the boys that received the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Sunday service became a service of joy and victory. The BOT forerunners were on fire and Apostle Mayemu was mightily used by God sharing on feeding the spirit man with the word of God. What a service! As BOT UK, we say by His grace, we’re ready to go and bring other boys to the Lord. We feel recharged and empowered in the Lord. Please continue to pray for us. Amen

Elections for new leadership were held in Rajkot. Mehsana Assembly is also gearing up for Easter and experiencing the Spirit of the Lord in their services.

It is with Jesus’ joy that we express our utmost gratitude to the God of Ezekiel for what He continues to do through the University Graduate Fellowship (UGF) in Zambia. ZAOGA on Campus Eden University hosted ‘The National Administrator’s Weekend’ visit in which the first years and the students from attachment were all welcomed. The National leader in the company of Mama met on Saturday with the group’s Executive committee and thereafter toured the University’s main campus, students’ dormitories, and the nearby boarding houses to appreciate the student’s life on campus. On Sunday, it was reported that the students had managed to purchase musical instruments, chairs, an overflow tent, and two direction posters for AMFCC bible school. The group is currently having twelve (12) functional cell groups on Mondays, Wednesday’s and Fridays both on campus and around the University. It is mesmerizing that a group that started with fifteen (15) students has managed to accomplish this. Three hundred and thirty (330) students attended the big Sunday with some coming from the University of Zambia, the University of Lusaka amongst others. One of the new students was baptised in the Holy Spirit. The students were taught the need to focus on pursuing their studies while serving God by preaching to their peers through in-reaches and out-reaches. We are highly grateful to the Lusaka North Overseer for their support and guidance to the group doing exploits by the Grace of God.


Travelling Teachers Ministry

On the 21st of February 2024, the Travelling Teachers ministry held its AGM which was followed by the teachers’ training seminar which was held the following day at AMFCC, where about 126 teachers gathered. The AGM, guided by the ministry Director Dr. Godfrey Chomutare tackled issues to do with the decentralisation of the ministry into zones and Provincial representatives of the ministry. Our mother Pastor Nyasha M. Guti gave a brief background of how the vision of Travelling Teachers Ministry (TTM) was unveiled. She highlighted that the TTM vision was given by our father, Archbishop E. H. Guti in 2007. The climax of the seminar was when our father Dr. Joseph Joe Guti came to grace to occasion and to give a charge to the teachers. He encouraged teachers to be true disciples with a genuine fear of God according to this year’s theme. The Travelling Teachers ministry will never be the same again after such a great seminar.


The 2024 International Hosting Seminar, hosted by the Hosting and Stewardship Ministry, was a resounding success, bringing together over 800 physical delegates from various regions of Zimbabwe and engaging an additional 610 participants through Zoom. The seminar featured insightful teachings, interactive sessions, and impactful initiatives aimed at fostering excellence in hosting and stewardship practices. We were honored to host Dr. La-Verne Simukai, the Go Quickly and Tell Director, who delivered a powerful teaching inspired by the guidance of Mother Archbishop Professor Eunor Guti. Her insights inspired and motivated attendees to embrace the principles of hosting and stewardship in their lives and encouraged the delegates that true hosting essentially begins from home. From our mother’s encouragement when we come to this ministry we must do it in the spirit and we start ministering from home with a sweet spirit as love can be felt. A significant milestone of the seminar was the launch of the 1st edition of the Hosting and Stewardship Ministry Handbook. In a demonstration of the true essence, the Hosting Director, Overseer Eunice Matsikenyere, handed over the donation of four wheelchairs and detergents to Mbuya Dorcas Hospital and Legacy School respectively. This act of generosity reflects the ministry’s commitment to serving and continuing the legacy of our Father.

When we fear God, we will fear to gossip, fear to tell lies, and fear to do something we know that God is not in favor of. Our father walked in the fear of God. We should also walk in the fear of God. Baba said don’t allow somebody who is not part of you to come in between and you tell that somebody something about one of your family members, it will cause a crack. Work on being united…God bless you.

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