Women are winning again and the Church is making another step forward because the women have decided to arise and take their positions to make sure the Church is winning and reaching the goals of which God has instituted for.
It was like a dream when the women society in our Church was discussing the challenges they face as women at large , where some are mothers , wives , single parents and others are widows and some are just single women and girls . Their meeting went even further to the point of finding ideas of how together they can unite their power to eradicate poverty among every reborn women in the Church, which means to empower one another as the organs in the Body of Christ , believing that It is very true God is willing to do something for the Church once He sees we are serious and very committed to take a move forward.
In other way this came as another surprise to men`s side in the Church seeing Women are winning again the same way it happened when Jesus was crucified and buried , whereby many great and most respected disciples of Jesus were captured into dilemma not remembering what to do next , nor remembering what Jesus told them before , and therefore the women challenged the disciples of the fact and truth updates of the resurrection of Jesus ,and again it was the women who met Jesus first before any others once Jesus was risen from the dead , it was the women who brought a news of hope and power to the Church that JESUS is alive again before Jesus appearing to them all in Galilee , yes Peter and other disciples ran after but no after without before , the record is coming up again in the Church that WOMEN ARE LEADING AGAIN.
GOOD NEWS ; For the first time , the Women society in the Church has founded a Micro-finance institution and named it "SHALOM WOMEN GROUP" , whereby its members are subjected to save money in into SHALOM every week , and after a period of time each member will be eligible to apply for a LOAN from the SHALOM MICRO FINANCE for their entrepreneurship projects they would like to do .
Another surprise! Two weeks ago there came one lady who wanted to give her life to Jesus so that she can be part of the born-again Christian Women and also join the SHALOM GROUP, the incidence came as the results what she heard from one of the Shalom group member of what these reborn women in the Church are doing to bring an impact to life and families .
When they started this idea we thought it was for helping them in economical point of view toward their ministry responsibilities as reborn Women , but never expected that God would use SHALOM MICROFINACE as also a winning vessel of the sinners to Jesus Christ , halelujah!!
Dear viewer, we would like to encourage to keep these Women of Christ in your fervent prayers and if you may feel to support them in any way possible feel free to reach us and let us join them in big support for the glory of God .To God be all the glory honor and praise.

The Almghty God the Father of our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ is at work and that is our only courage which keeps us feel that we are not alone despite of many challenges we have been facing including , Stoning against our Church building ,local-made booms attacks thrown toward our Church hall during our Church services , asoning against our daughter Churches from and the current low scale resources in which the Church could use to accomplish more than we have done before., remember Jesus called the Church as His House of Prayers, we keep standing firm in Him for He is always faithful.
We as the Church feel it is the time now to move to a good enough place for the Church , this requires a spacious plot which can accumulate the Church building and other depart compounds the Church need to represent the Kingdom of God base on the specific assignment that Jesus Christ has commended us to accomplish for His amazing glory. This project requires funds , expertise and prophetic guidance from God of how and what God wants this Church to be constructed ,for there is God divine purpose in anything He wants to do.But please remember when we are talking about the Church we are not talking about our own or human business at all , but God`s business.
You can do something for the Church if you are graciously knowledgeable to discerning that anything good you do for Her /Church you do neither for the denomination , neither the people assemble here, but instead you are doing for the Owner of the Church who is no one else but JESUS CHRIST the LORD, as you can see here below what He said.
Matthew 21:13 13And He said to them, "It is written, 'MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER'; but you are making it a ROBBERS' DEN." 14And the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them.…"
Therefore , let we ask you please to join us prayerfully seeking the Lord that He may send us a means of resources we can start and accomplish this project , because where we are currently worshiping is no longer conducive , enough and accessible for many people who look for a place to worship and praise the Lord with a freedom and peace.
We have declared today that the whole Church shall enter a journey of fasting and praying that He , God may send us a possibility to possess and build the Church for His amazing glory and honor.And we are going to start opening a special fund for this project whereby every Christian members and leaders shall be donating every Sunday not matter how low wages many members are either paid or earning from the works of their hands.You can send your support to our Bank account as shown in this blog at Donation page, your can also write to us to let us know who you have support the work and we get your name for our Church prayers.
May God the LORD bless you for taking this urgent and core need of the Church seriously , may He bless you with His DIVINE SHALOM, may you lack no success in anything good and righteous you put your hands to do, in Christ Jesus, AMEN.
We humbly thank you for being a reason for the HOUSE OF THE LORD TO BE ESTABLISHED IN ZANZIBAR.

Thanks and glory be to the Lord for continuing to raise the mighty community of men and women with a zeal to devote their time , supports and other resources to make sure the Kingdom of God is built and spread in the Country , City , Province , District , village and house to house , family to family , person to person .Though it has never been so easy but it`s only through Christ who strengthens us everything is made possible, Philipians 5:13
Our special thanks for all those who have been keeping the work of God in Zanzibar in their prayer lists , and despite of silence and openly oppositions against the spread of the gospel in which in many times have been done in the motive of persecution , and disappointment and discrimination but your continually unquenchable prayers have been so helpful to push away the fear and discouragement and there comes the Spirit of power and boldness to empowering the Saints to press and move on serving the LORD.
This is to encourage you that never ever stop praying for the Saints , and keep mobilizing others to intercede for the men and women of God who carrying the divine mission of the Gospel to Zanzibar , we believe even those who have been opposing this divine ministry of the gospel of Jesus Christ they do so because of the blindness that the devil have placed between their eyes to take it differently and opposite and for that sake we chose to love and pray for them as we keep telling them the Truth about Jesus and and His amazing divinely mission to the world.
May the LORD God bless you as you continue to stand in your position the LORD placed you into in order for His amazing plan to be fulfilled in the shininess of His glory.Be blessed our dear brothers and sisters for your support and love in Christ Jesus the LORD..Amen

BBC is one among the most respected Media in the world and has made its very nice reputable records in its functionality world wide.
We do respect and love the BBC but we must be very fair to correct them whenever they do a mistake.Here is one example, the BBC SWAHILI didn`t treat the Church fair following the terrible incidences took place in Zanzibar last and this week.Two Churches apart from Mercury restaurant were boomed by unknown men last Sunday 23rd/02/2014 this was Evangelistic Assemblies Of God Zanzibar Church in Pangawe Zone in Founi, and the Anglican Church which is at Mkunazini street in Zanzibar town in 24th/02/2014.
But we are very shocked and very disappointed to see the big media like BBC could only ended up mentioning the places ( Pangawe and Mkunazini) without caring mentioning the victims institutions which are (Evangelistic Assemblies Of God Zanzibar at Pangawe zone(Shehia) and The Anglican Church at Mkunazini)in such terrible incidence like this? see what they did
I think it could be wise to mention the victims following the series of such attacks have been targeted Christian institutions especially in 2012 whereby a big loss of properties even life took place and no any compensation was made at least to help the victims to restore what was damaged by, and just now you could see that bad atmosphere is starting taking into stage while they past wounds are still there!!
We are calling for the BBC and other local media which reported the incidences to be fair and work according to their mass media ethic which recognize fairness in balancing issues , because the listeners and the viewers have the right to know the true and clear content of their news , you can`t just mentioning a place and leave a victim covered while he or she is known , you can`t write a story from a single source while another can be available to help the story be in good and fair balance to give the media a very professional prepared clear content.
May God forgive you for this and help you next time to work in fairness and good balance in what you are to present to the media

Romans 8:38-39 "38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."(KJV
It was around 1:17pm last Sunday 23rd, 2014, when unknown man came outside our Church wall and threw a local made Boom in what is believed to be a terror plot which was aimed to hurt and kill the Church members including children and leaders whom at that time were praying to end the service
We heard a very strong boom blast which caused a big confusion and frustration among us , but by the grace of God the leaders where calmed and strong to help the members to remain calmly in the Church while a youth team was given an instruction to go out and check the situation and bring back the feedback if the whole compound was safe and in case the enemy was around to cause more harm
Thank God ! There was nobody outside found, something which showed he threw it and ran away .Then saw some Boom materials which were used to make it and managed to keep them there they were until the Police arrived with a team of Boom squad experts who arrived 10 minutes after we called them
We give the glory to God for no one was hurt or killed so God kept us safe from the evil satanic plot which targeted our lives.But we praise the Lord because a place where the Boom landed is where our Sunday School children always stay while adults are in main service,but by the grace of God our children were all inside the Church unexpectedly to join the parents in service at the time the Boom landed there,so you can imagine how terrible the situation could be if they could be there while the Boom landing and strike the wall.
As the Church we are sending a very clear massage to all those who choose such wrong path of Satan that the "WE WILL NEVER QUIT THE GOSPEL AND JESUS CHRIST,NOR LOSE HEART TRUSTING IN HIM EVEN PREACH BY HIS NAME.
We forgive and bless them for what they did against us, and we ask the LORD to save and change their lives for Christ sake,and His amazing love and glory in Christ Jesus ..Amen.

Be aware whenever you meet a person who may try to convince you to join this Organization "World Organization For Church Support " .
Please tell us or call for Police because they are deceiving Christian leaders that they are working to help Churches and spiritual leaders to go in abroad (USA,AUSTRALIA and CANADA) for 6 to 9 months for mission activities but not true at all because they are attempting to steal money from God`s people.
They came to Zanzibar and were trying to convince pastors and bishops in Zanzibar to join them as they would help them be connected to Mega Churches in USA, AUSTRALIA and CANADA also they were using photos of the honourable men in their website claiming to be affiliated to them ,some of them are Hon.Prime Minister of Canada , and also Kathryn Lohre a President for National Council of Churches Of Christ in USA (NCC), also Pastor Creflo A. Dollar, Jr. a (televangelist, pastor, and the founder of the non-denominational World Changers Church International based in Fulton County, Georgia)
We give thanks and praise to God that these scam attempt aimed to destroy the personality ,reputation and credibility of the Church in Zanzibar in the image of the public well as causing big confusion among leaders and mere Christian members who could be tempted to even borrow money from different sources to fund for their visa fees but unfortunately they would end-up in an unexpected mess of losing their money.Glory be to God that this evil plot against the Church has totally failed to the maximum , however they failed here in Zanzibar and Tanzania but we are cautioning other Christian leaders around the global to be aware of these scammers who target whoever they can target and treat them unmercifully.
Thank you all who have helped us to know the truth and we praise all steps which are taken to make sure the suspects will have no way to deceive people and especially the Churches , but we also praise any possible lawful measures which might be taken against the suspect and make them good as a examples for any persons who might try to follow such cyber crimes attempts
Matthew 16:18 " And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."

He is now being admitted at central hospital in Zanzibar and there is a majority of Christians flowing there right now from different corners.Until now there is no any suspect being arrested and nothing has been heard already from the Christian leaders following such this brutally attack to emerged few months after two British nationals were attacked with the liquid acid
We are following the currently incidence and will come back as we be getting the current situations on the ground ,how ever Christians are called to remain calm as steps are be taken over the matter
Please be on prayers for the Church and never lose heart to encourage she, and hopefully the Lord God will remember you in your time of troubles and challenges.
The Long Way The Church Was And Is to Go
Zanzibar Island is the informal designation for the Islands of Unguja and Pemba situated in the Indian Ocean.
However during the Age of Exploration ,in 1498 the Portuguese Empire was the first European power to gain control of Zanzibar, and kept it for nearly 200 years until in 1698 Zanzibar fell under the control of the Sultanate of Oman and obviously ( build the Mosque of Allah is believed by the Islam so ever influenced the mode of belief of the entire generations of the Zanzibaris until today ).
Muslim traders from the Persian Gulf had settled through southern hemisphere of Unguja early in the 10th century after monsoon winds propelled them through the Gulf of Aden and Somalia. Zanzibar archipelago united with Tanganyika to form the present day Tanzania in 1964.
The rise of the minority Christian community relies on different means of their introductory causes ,as Christianity has diverse rich forms of denominations therefore there were some denominations which were being introduced in Zanzibar through historical factors like Colonialism period whereby the Colonial empires which were established in the forms of the national denominations were easily made their side by spreading their belief such of these are Anglican Christians through British Empire and Roman Catholic through Portuguese, Lutheran through German Empires .
How ever in 1974 there were other Christian Churches were introduced in Zanzibar after Independence of Zanzibar then the United Republic of Tanzania such these Churches were the Lutheran Christians and Evangelical Christians (Pentecostal) etc.
Praise God, as from the Church Rev.Leonard Masasa was pastoring were rose men who decided to go out and established new churches of different denominations such as Elim Pentecost, Tanzania Assemblies of God, Zanzibar Pentecostal Church, Free Pentecostal, and many other churches have been established in Zanzibar Islands.
In 1995 Rev.Leonard left the church he used to pastor since 1984 and established a new Church which "The Evangelistic Assemblies of God Zanzibar (EAGZ)" and was started until this day he is pastoring that Church.
The EAGZ Church has succeeded by the grace of God to open other Churches.How ever more efforts is done as to equip these churches and also pray hard to find up some means we can do more in other places, if God may open doors.
The recent research have shows that Islam religion has 95.% followed by Hindus and others 2.05% ,Catholic and Anglican 1.% ,Lutheran 0.01%, Evangelicals 0.05% of all people.
Please when you visit the Islands of Zanzibar feel free to visit us too and as you are still afar we therefore requesting your fervent and effective prayers so that this work may go forward and so many Zanzibaris could find their chance to know and believe in Jesus Christ...Amen.
