The Zimbabwe Assemblies of God Africa (ZAOGA) Forward in Faith International Ministries has released the funeral program for the late Archbishop Ezekiel Handinawangu Guti, the esteemed founder and leader of the organization.
The program, announced by the ZAOGA EXECUTIVE and National Council on July 6, marks the passing of a spiritual giant who departed for greater glory on July 5, 2023, just two months after celebrating his 100th birthday.
In honor of Archbishop Prof E.H. Guti’s extraordinary life and immeasurable contributions, the ZAOGA community will embark on a 30-day Celebration (mourning) period from July 6, 2023, to August 5, 2023. Drawing inspiration from Deuteronomy 34:8, which recounts the mourning period for Moses, this time will allow the faithful to reflect on the profound impact Archbishop Guti had on their lives.

During this commemorative period, all conferences, Provincial Council Meetings, District Council Meetings, Seminars, tournaments, and similar activities will be temporarily suspended. However, gatherings for prayer, such as the beloved Tuesday Ladies prayer meetings, will continue to provide solace and strength to the church and its members.
The church encourages its followers to come together in their respective localities, offering prayers for the steadfastness of Mother Prof Eunor Guti and the Guti family, as well as for the wider church community.
In a bid to ensure the smooth coordination of events, the church advised congregants not to travel to Harare for the celebrations until the date of the grand celebrations is officially communicated.
