Founded by Apostle Dr. Ezekiel H. Guti: Over 50 Years and Moving On

Apostles Update Week 51

Dear Friends,  
 
We trust we all celebrated the birth of Jesus and thanked God for sending His Son to the earth. If it had not been for Jesus...where would we be?
 
We continue to look back at the year 2021:
 
A second edition of the International Sunday Live broadcasts continued for both adults and the children’s ministry in 2021.While the Month of May as always was a colourful and jubilant month as ZAOGA FIFMI celebrated its 61st anniversary and our father Apostle Ezekiel H. Guti’s 98th birthday all over the world.
 
The Zimbabwe Ezekiel Guti University (ZEGU) held its 5th annual graduation capping 230 graduands, a clear demonstration of expansion and growth and among them was our father being conferred an honorary Doctor of Philosophy in Social Entrepreneurship (Honoris Causa). We said it then, we will say it again now Congratulations Baba on this special recognition!!
 
Different countries experienced second and third waves of the coronavirus pandemic and many activities were halted but the church of Jesus Christ is unstoppable. There might have been physical gathering restrictions but the body of Christ’s growth could not be restricted. In the background of many virtual and/ hybrid conferences and prayer retreats being hosted by the various ministries in the church such as the Youth, Go Quickly, Men of Integrity and so forth new FIFMI babies were being born and revival sweeping the nations.
 
In July the church in Thailand was revived through Elders who were in China relocating to Thailand and since then the believers are being strengthened and grounded. A three-day revival at a local hotel in Bangor, Maine resulted in the church being planted in this part of the USA. Last year baby Morocco was born in Marrakech and this year God opened another door for another assembly to be established in the commercial capital city of Casablanca in September. Talk about God making a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, the travel and gathering restrictions have actually enabled the gospel to reach further and wider through virtual platforms and has privileged nations that would otherwise be physically without a Pastor to receive online Pastoral Support.
 
Today’s Woman Conference resumed this 2021 with a limited number gathering at the International Command Centre at the Rainbow Towers, Harare, Zimbabwe and a technical hub which was live streaming from EGEA studios at the ZAOGA FIF international headquarters also in Harare. Tens of thousands of women attended the conference via Zoom, Whatsapp, Facebook, Mixlr and churchonline platform. The much anticipated Male and Female Pastors Conferences were held on back to back weekends and the church kept marching on reaching Colorado state, USA. Crossing into October, Seychelles an island in the Indian Ocean, off East Africa was born and across the world in South East Asia we also welcomed another FIFMI baby - Cambodia.
 
2021 was also the year of the first ever Asia Deeper Life Leadership Conference and Believers Conference bringing together Malaysia, China, Thailand, Philippines, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Back on the African continent Mozambique also had its first ever virtual Deeper Life Conference being joined by other Portuguese speaking nations around the globe. Other nations also held virtual conferences.
 
To wrap up the year Chitungwiza held big Sundays in all the five provinces and the Apostles of Jesus Christ our father and mother taught the word with power. Hundreds were born again, healed and delivered as the kingdom of God was demonstrated. Hallelujah! The kingdom of God was made manifest. What a way to end the year for Chitungwiza.
 
God has been gracious. Indeed, we have seen the hand of God and His faithfulness in answering the prayers of His Servants and the saints. Glory to God! Hallelujah! Why not stand up and give God praise!!
 
By the grace of God, we are looking forward to the 2022 Ten Days of Prayer and Fasting. We believe God will pour out the spirit of prayer, grace and supplication. Please remember to send us reports of what the Lord will have done during the Ten days.
 
Thank you for faithfully sending reports throughout the year.
PLEASE NOTE WE WILL NOT HAVE APOSTLES’ UPDATE NEXT WEEK AS WE WILL ALL BE GOING THROUGH THE TEN DAYS PRAYER.
This week:
  1. Thanking God for the Servant and Apostles of God, Prof Ezekiel H. & Dr. Eunor Guti that He strengthened them throughout 2021 and continues to do so. Let's give Him glory for the victories they have experienced throughout the year.
  2. Thanking God for the new FIFMI assemblies that were born in 2021.
  3. Thanking God for His faithfulness at ZEGU & (Mbuya Dorcas Hospital) MDH in 2021.
  4. Thanking God for the Angel of the Lord that continues to encamp round about those who fear Him protecting the saints around the world from Covid-19. Thanking God for healing all who are infected. Thanking God for removing the spirit of fear and comforting those that have lost their loved ones.
  5. Thanking God for your nation.
 
   TEACHING:  PART OF BABA & AMAI'S MESSAGE
 
The purpose of Ten Days of prayer and fasting is to prepare to enter the new year. So, when the enemy comes you will have already prayed. You can mention every month as you pray like I used to, praying for January to December. We don’t know what is in the year. Some years are good, some are bad, but we are moving on. We trust God to protect us.
As we pray let’s read the word of God. Find time to cleanse ourselves. Pray using the word of God. Pray in faith. God bless you.
 
We love you and are praying for you,
Drs Steve & La-Verne Simukai
