Dear Friends,


The International Girls’ Ministry held another powerful hybrid seminar this year from Thursday 7 March to Sunday 10 March at AMFCC in Harare Zimbabwe. We would like to thank the God of our Father for enabling us to hold this life-transforming conference. We were blessed with a line-up of powerful speakers such as Dr. La-Verne Simukai the International Go Quickly and Tell Director, Pastor Shamie Mwale from Cyprus, Pastor Rejoice Samundombe from RSA and Senior Pastor Gift Ranga the International Girls Advisor and other speakers who taught on several topics such as Emotional Healing, Leadership, Deliverance, Mental Health, Giving, personal development, and the History of our church. The Girls were equipped with life-changing skills to use in their day-to-day lives. This conference was one of its kind as we also had girls’ speakers who taught on social media and how to handle abuse. Over 100 girls were prayed for and poured out their hearts during the emotional healing session. A total of 150 girls received the gift of the Holy Spirit and started to speak in other tongues. Over 200 girls were prayed for during the deliverance session to break all the spirits that were working as hindrances in their walk with Christ.
On the last day of the conference, we were graced by our Mother Archbishop Professor Eunor Guti who spoke about what it takes to be a Young Eunor. She gave a charge on winning souls as this is what our Father Archbishop Professor E.H Guti had a burden for. She revealed some of the most powerful testimonies she experienced with Baba doing the work of God. She also spoke about being obedient, as that is the word God had given her to share with us and to have the genuine fear of God. It was a life-transforming service that touched many girls’ lives and they will never be the same. A total of 13 Girls gave their lives to Christ. We thank the God of our Father for giving the Girls Ministry grace to hold this Seminar and having a dedicated International Girls Director Pastor Ruth Basa who has remained willed to follow the vision that our Father had for a girl child.


We thank the God of our father Ezekiel Guti for a powerful Sunday service. The Leaders and members of the Church are happy with the return of Pastor Fredy to the Dominican Republic he preached the history of the Church, how the Church began through a simple man of God, Ezekiel Guti, and how he left his legacy, which is everything written in his books. Even if Apostle Ezekiel Guti went to be with the Lord, the FIFMI church is stronger, our mother Archbishop Eunor Guti and the 3 Apostles continue with the teachings of our father Ezekiel Guti. We ask for prayers for our upcoming crusades in the DR.


We had our Sunday service with 52 adults and 6 children. We praised and worshipped God and afterward, we received the teaching of the Word from our dear Brother Armando who taught from Luke chapter 10 about the Good Samaritan. Our believers testified about what God is doing in their lives. We had a special moment when our Pastor José read from the book of Proverb 31 dedicated to all women. We received the word of God and after there was an altar call and we were sent home with the blessing of the Lord.


We thank the God of our Father Ezekiel, for a powerful, life-changing Go Quickly Prayer Retreat in Yorkshire Province that was attended by over 140 ladies. Led by our Overseer Shkaa Manyati and Pastor Cleo Mutingwa and the Go Quickly Board of Yorkshire Province. Our invited speaker, Mama Bishop Dr. Mabel Samasuwo, was mightily used by God. On Saturday night, she taught on how to deal with forgiveness, children, and families, as led by the Holy Spirit. There was a mighty move of the presence of God. Many ladies testified how they had received guidance concerning issues happening in their lives. Also, God restored children to their parents. One lady was healed during the retreat. Broken hearts were restored. We saw women dancing and rejoicing after testifying about the goodness of the Lord.
Girls of Quality (GOQ) under the guidance of the National Girls Director Pastor Cecilia Zezani also had their prayer retreats. A lot of girls said Isaiah 58 has taught them to mend their relationship with their mothers which had broken down and also to let go of bitterness with their parents. Some texted their parents asking for forgiveness. Some were delivered from addiction to pornography and masturbation, some had issues and could not talk to each other, and they had time to meet and reconcile and forgive each other. 17 girls were Holy Spirit-filled. 169 girls attended the prayer retreat this year across all three zones. To God be the glory.


We thank the God of our Father Ezekiel for allowing our nation to launch an AMFCC part-time Bible School, the school opened its doors to learners on March 2nd with online classes. Students are scattered all over the country in different provinces. Interestingly we have youths in our classes as well. The first class has 60 students. We have local pastors as our teachers. Praise be to the Lord God Ezekiel.
As a nation, we also thank the Lord for a successful hybrid National Female Pastors Prayer Retreat from 29 Feb-2 March. Our Speaker was Overseer Joylyn Rusere from Australia. She ministered powerfully, utilizing Isaiah 58, and also taught on working Talents. There was a faith clinic and the Pastors freely poured out. The entire retreat was highly charged and there was a heavy presence of God. What a wonderful experience we had in the presence of the Lord. We have truly been refreshed, encouraged, revived, and equipped. We give glory to the God of Ezekiel!


We express our gratitude to the God of our father Apostle Ezekiel Guti for His unwavering favour in Russia. We had a powerful online service with 19 members in attendance. Pastor Farai Kupamhama preached a potent sermon on Covenant and encouraged the young Ezekiels and Eunors to continue with the vision of our father here in Russia. Afterwards, we had yet another powerful offline service with an attendance of 25. Brother Special encouraged the church to trust in God. Thank you for your prayers. God is doing mightier and greater things in Russia through the students. We received so many testimonies this week on the goodness of the God of Ezekiel in the students’ lives.


We thank the God of our Father Ezekiel Guti for His continued faithfulness in our Nation. Our midweek services were well attended, including the Go Quickly Tuesday prayer and Thursday meeting. On Friday 01 March our Pastors had their first historic Asia Pastors Friday prayer online. On Saturday 02 March, we had a young adults’ outing and games which was held in Cyber Jaya at our Advisors’ place Elders Mutyavaviri. 16 members were present and we had a great time of games and teachings from our advisors and Pastors this was so refreshing. Then on Sunday 03 March, we had a phenomenal Big Sunday. Deacon Tinashe led an interactive bible study and deacon Rodney was the forerunner who taught powerfully on fellowship with God. Pastor Shepherd sealed the service with the teaching of discipleship, we were encouraged. We had 48 members in attendance, 4 children including 2 visitors from Vietnam and 7 online viewers. We highly appreciate your prayers and support.


We are eternally grateful to the God of our father for His continued faithfulness in our nation. This week was a week of breakthroughs where we were fasting and meeting daily for prayer, with an average of 30 people logging in for the service. Several local speakers were used mightily to speak to our lives and encourage us. On Friday, Pastor Learnie preached powerfully on moving in the presence of God. This Sunday was very powerful with a total attendance of 56 people, 35 online and 19 people onsite. We had three visitors, a lady from South Africa, another from Nigeria, and a brother who has just relocated from Zimbabwe, who has also pledged to make FIF his home. A highly interactive Bible study was led by sister Hazel on creation. Sister Jemimah was the forerunner and preached on counting it joy when we face trials. Thereafter, Deacon Sandy taught powerfully about the God who restores even when things seem beyond redemption. We had time to pray for our lives after the word. One person later gave her life to Christ, glory to God! Many people are testifying of the goodness of the God of Ezekiel in their lives. Thank you for praying for us, as we pray for you.


We want to thank the God of our father for the ladies’ prayer retreats that took place in our nation within the last two weeks. 35 ladies in the Upper North (Auckland) Region and 20 ladies in the Lower North (Wellington) Region gathered in their regional centres between Thursday 29 February and Sunday 10 March. The ladies received powerful teachings from Pastor Judith Mutsambiwa and Overseer Nerisa Normans ministering in Lower North, Pst Judith Mutsambiwa and Pastor Martha Kahwema in South Island Regions while Pastor Tabitha Collins and Senior Pastor Rumbi Makuwere ministered in the Upper North Regions. Women were empowered through teachings of prayer, forgiveness, loosening heavy burdens, home talents, and practicing to be true disciples who remain rooted and grounded in the doctrine of our church. There was great deliverance from rejection, unforgiveness, self-blame, childhood trauma, gossiping, and great pouring out from individuals. There was faith clinic time and most of the ladies had a one-on-one with one of the Pastors or the Speaker. Upper and Lower North Regions ended their prayer retreat with a Big Sunday together with the church. We thank God for the restoration, healing, and deliverance that took place, and these are some of the few testimonies that were noted.
Ladies were healed from spiritual heaviness and generational bitterness.
One lady was healed from spine/tailbone deviation.
Someone had refused to work home talents but after the teaching, she is now geared up to work for her family.
One lady was healed from chronic migraine headaches.
We continue to thank God for our mother Archbishop Professor Eunor Guti for the vision as the platform of prayer retreat has become a safe place to pour out and receive our complete deliverance.


God favoured us as the nation of Malawi from the 5th-6th of March we had a National Female Pastors Prayer retreat and all the female Pastors gathered in Lilongwe. The HQ sent us powerful speakers DP Winnie Nzou and Pastor Christine Kagura who were used by God in a mighty way. They taught on Prayer, Home Talents, Partnering with God, and the Mandate of Go Quickly quoting from the books that were written by our Father. Isaiah 58 worked, Pastors poured out and the Holy Spirit moved in a mighty way. In the morning hours, the God of Ezekiel visited us there was a thick presence of God in the church and He ministered to us, we give glory to God. Home Talents were taught and Female Pastors were revived to go back and work hard in order to have better lives and partner with God. 3 ladies were delivered from the spirit of unforgiveness, 2 others from the spirit of rejection, and 1 from the spirit of forgetfulness. 5 were filled with the Holy Spirit. Some who were sick were also healed. Women testified on how God has touched their lives and their faces were glowing with the glory of God.


The God of our father Ezekiel H. Guti has granted us favour as female pastors in Mozambique in the 10 provinces of the country, to hold our Prayer Retreat from the 4th to the 6th of March, using the instructions we were given through the manual, the book of Isaiah 58, which was our strength during the Retreat. The pastors testified about their lives and sought to be women of good character. It was a good moment when our mother Dr. Petronela Simão taught us in order for us to understand Talents. Pastors witnessed some changes in their lives through the book of Isaiah 58. They were good moments for us, the Holy Spirit ministered powerfully among us. There was repentance in several areas. May the God of our father be praised.



It was a power-packed weekend in the Mabelreign Kingdom district as we hosted the Deputy Secretary General of ZAOGA FIF Apostle Dr. Steve and Dr. La-Verne Simukai at our first quarter District Council and big Sunday. The Word was extracted from 2 Peter 1 from verse 3 about His divine power through which God has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness. He emphasised the need to dominate as kings drawing our power and dominion from the priesthood and therefore be in charge of our lives, families, and life’s situations. He encouraged parents to take charge and control of their homes and to be careful of what children do on social media. Saturday afternoon every DC delegate present was prayed for and received impartation and later we had fellowship. The Sunday service was attended by 585 people and the DSG Apostle Steve shared on true discipleship, reminding the believers to do the things that we have received and learned, heard, and saw in our father the servant and Apostle of God Ezekiel Guti. He taught us to walk and operate in the Kingdom of God. Dr La-Verne Simukai shared on walking in the Kingdom. Multiplication happens when we are in the Kingdom.

Glory to God!

“Prayer is a powerful force God does things in answer to prayer that He would not do otherwise” Pg. 6 Prayer of a Righteous Man Avails Much… book.
God will not do anything without prayer. “God has ordained prayer, and He will do nothing through people without prayer. Prayer is a specific divine appointment with God” (pg 16).
You can cry for a job or promotion at work but if you don’t go the way of the ordained prayer, it will not happen. Nothing happens without the ordained powerful force. God waits for the ordained powerful force…God bless you.

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