Dear Friends,
Happy 62nd Anniversary ZAOGA FIFMI!!
We thank the God of Father Apostle Ezekiel Guti for His continuing grace. The church was happy to receive a team of missionaries from our HQ "Jerusalem" (Zimbabwe) Bishop L. & Rev N. Mpanduki and Pastor J. Ganyiwa. They went straight from the Airport to meet with the church members, with over 30 people attending the church service. On Friday 11 November 2022, with 20 gadgets connected online Zoom church service, Pastor Ganyiwa shared the word of God. On Saturday the 12th of November 2022 church service was held with over 20 people in attendance, where Reverend N Mpanduki taught. Leadership meetings were held. Pray for us for a place of worship and church registration.
Oregon - The God of Ezekiel continues to do amazing things in Oregon. It is Thanksgiving season here in the USA and FIF Oregon hosted a Thanksgiving Dinner in Portland this last Saturday. The Dinner was a great success with more than 40 adults in attendance. This really helped to make our presence known in our community and many of the families promised to come to church. On Sunday we had 21 people in attendance with one new family joining us. A number of our regular members were working. We finished the series on the Holy Spirit and witnessed 3 people speaking in tongues for the first time 6 others having their tongues renewed. There is great potential in Oregon and the prayer request is for the many people we have been visiting and talking to, to be saved and commit to FIF.
We had a wonderful Bible study on Wednesday which was attended by seven people. During our Sunday service, we had two powerful testimonies. One Man testified on how God protected him when he fell asleep while he was driving during the night. Another man also encouraged other members telling them that, in Forward in Faith there are great opportunities to serve the Lord. During the morning Bible study, Pastor Vee taught on the importance of practicing the word of God. Pastor Sibett then taught the message of the kingdom of God. We had one visitor who promised to come again, the service was attended by eight people. Thank you for your prayers. 
We thank the God of our Father Apostle Ezekiel Guti for an awesome week throughout all of our meetings. In our Sunday Service, we really felt and enjoyed the presence of the Lord in our midst as we received with thanksgiving the powerful word of the Lord through our very own Elder Caroline. Bible Study was very enlightening facilitated by Elder Carol. There were 22 adults and 5 children in attendance and 11 persons on zoom. Please continue to pray for us as we pray for you.
We had a special weekend, from last Friday where our Pastor José Arocha taught about the baptism in the Holy Ghost, from the Book Saved, Baptized and Filled with the Holy Spirit, written by our father Apostle Ezekiel Guti, with 30 people in attendance. The service continued on Saturday to 28 adults and 5 children. In our Sunday service, we had 43 adults and 8 children, Pastor Irma Menes, preached about the baptism of the Holy Ghost. We want to thank God for using our dear Pastors Takesure Kwezekani, Pastor José Arocha and Pastor Irma Menes,14 people were baptized in the Holy Ghost. We had a powerful service, we want to thank God for His presence.
We give glory and honour to the God of our Father, Apostle Ezekiel Guti for yet another powerful week in the nation of Malaysia. On Friday, we had an online service which was hosted by the Young Adults. 23 gadgets logged in, and Pastor Thembinkosi Mupangeri shared about ‘The importance of knowing your church history.’ The message was an eye-opener. On Saturday, Go Quickly met together with 4 ladies in attendance. The ladies shared their experiences, after which they received teaching from Pastor Priscilla Mupangeri about ‘Being a woman of influence’. The meeting was concluded with a time of fellowship.
We capped off the week with a powerful, and emotional service which happened to be the last Sunday with Elders Tatendaishe and Shaleen Gudyanga. We had an attendance of 34 people. The church had time to testify about how their lives were impacted by the teachings received from the Elders, and how their love for the church has served as an example to many who have now made FIF their home. Elder Shaleen encouraged the church to continue doing good as unto the Lord, and Elder Tatenda Gudyanga concluded by sharing a powerful message about ‘The system of the Kingdom of God’. Many people were prayed for, with some receiving healing and revival. The service was topped off with a time of fellowship. We want to thank the God of our father Ezekiel Guti for Elders Tatendaishe and Shaleen Gudyanga, who were leading the church since 2017. Surely the remarkable work they have done is unmatched, and the fruit is evident. Malaysia will surely miss them.
Fort Dauphin - We thank the God of our Father Apostle Ezekiel Guti for His grace upon our nation as we witness the hand of God in our church. We thank God that since the coming of Pastor Vivien, the church of Ambinanibe is growing as they go and preach door to door every Saturday morning. We see new believers and old believers who stopped coming to church starting to come back. The newborn assembly of Ilafitsinana is growing in numbers. At a crusade, 21 people dedicated their lives to Jesus, and 4 families decided to become members of our church and started to come to church. On Saturday, we had a powerful Crusade in the city of Fort Dauphin where 15 people dedicated their lives to Jesus. We had a powerful big Sunday, Pastor Parfait taught the Doctrine of our church, and Pastor Vivien preached a powerful message. The presence of God was tangible, Pastor Jhinna ministered on Deliverance and Healing. We had an attendance of 132 people. Testimonies:
  • Many of our believers of Ambinanibe received a job after prayer in church
  • A sister who had many kinds of diseases (toothache, stomachache, headache) testified that since she joined the church, these sicknesses gradually disappeared and now she is in good health.
Thank you for praying for the growth of the church in Fort Dauphin 
We thank our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for His grace and mercy upon us here in Rwanda. We are having Monday and Friday prayers. The Friday prayer led by the Girls of Quality as they prepared to lead the Sunday service was attended by 22 adults and 7 children. We had a powerful Sunday service led by the Girls of Quality. The speaker, sister Rumbidzai Muparutsa preached powerfully speaking on Favour. The children had their own service with Pastor Annah and 2 Deacons. Since the start of the children's church, we have witnessed an increase in the attendance of children. Three people repented. The attendance was 17 men, 26 women, and 29 children giving a total of 72. We received 4 visitors among whom is a believer who is a teacher at one of the schools and an Elder who came to teach at one of the universities here. So, far we have received two elders, one deacon, and one believer who came to teach here in Rwanda. Pray for us that the registration of the church may be completed soon. So far, we have submitted the papers and we are waiting for the Governing Board to respond to our application.
UGF - We would want to express our gratitude to God of our Father Professor Ezekiel Guti, for giving us the chance to host our annual conference this year from 11-13 November at AMFCC. It was a spectacular and life-transforming event that featured well-known speakers who covered a wide range of subjects. Apostle Gudyanga spoke on the UGF Vision. Majority of our attendees were undergraduates. We praise God that even postgraduates were answering the call. Our attendance ranged from 230 to 500. There was a powerful move of the Holy Spirit. 23 graduates gave their lives to Christ and were baptised in water. Every day of the conference, people were being delivered, and they received assistance in areas like mental health, drug abuse, healthy church relationships, church history, vision, and the Kingdom of God at large. The conference was graced by the prophetic prayer of blessing from our Father which emphasised that we become better people who exhibit Godliness in all walks of life workplace.
Greendale - We would like to thank the God of our Father Archbishop Ezekiel Guti for His faithfulness as we experienced the power of God during our three days of Word Festival with Pastor Carol Guti and the EGEA Gospel Moving Team at the Greendale Local Mother Church from the 11-13 November. We received powerful Word and deliverance sessions. On Sunday Pastor Carol taught on Faith and Pastor Mabvuramiti taught on Church History. The attendance rose from 120 to 740 on the final day. Some testimonies:
  • 15 people gave their lives to Jesus Christ. 
  • 20 people were delivered from the spirit of anger. 
  • 10 were delivered from back pains and 21 were delivered from period pain and loss of blood. Glory to God.
  • 14 women were delivered from the spirit of rejection and 25 people were healed from different sicknesses.
There was a great revival. Indeed, Greendale Local Mother Church shall never remain the same again.

Proverbs 4:23 "Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life."
Our heart is the center of our life. Leaders, your heart must be saved, you must have a good heart.
Some people when they serve people, they choose whom they like - it’s different with me - I serve even little kids, and others want top people. To me, people are equal, young and old. Some want to serve the rich and those who are clean or well-known. God is looking for a good heart, not grammar or English
All of us leaders we must be saved, pastors, elders, bishops, archbishops, etc
When we are saved the church will find a way to go to God. God bless you.
We love you and are praying for you,
Apostle Drs Steve & La-Verne Simukai
