More than Enough

Dear beloved:  Pictures, children fetching water at Living Water spring; Living Water Home, Kenya
Exodus 36:3 And they received from Moses all the offering which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of making the sanctuary. So they continued bringing to him freewill offerings every morning. v4 Then all the craftsmen who were doing all the work of the sanctuary came, each from the work he was doing, v5 and they spoke to Moses, saying, "the people bring much more than enough for the service of the work which the Lord commanded us to do."

Beloved, we are finshing up the construction of the Living Water Children's Home, just painting and furniture necessities left to purchase,  I am very thankful to all of you who have supported this project with your prayers and donations.  It has certainly been a work of the Lord.  If you have not donated, there is still plenty of ways you can get involved.  These are the needs that we have at the moment to complete everything.  1.  Interior paint, labor $2,100  2. Furniture, bunk beds, mattresses, sofas, chairs, etc $3,000  3. Kitchen supplies, stove, fridge etc $1,500  4. Nurses and social worker offices, free standing building $3,500  5. Landscaping, rock and gravel, trees and shrubs, etc $1,000.  If you have any questions or need any information, please email me.  My purpose in sending out this newsletter is to keep you informed, but even more to get you involved in the work of the Lord here in Kenya. Pray about what the Lord would have you to do.  God bless you!

Nairobi Crusade Coming

Dear beloved:  Pictures: left, some of the crowd at Dar es Salaam Crusade;  Living Water Ophanage, Kenya
Job 14:14 If a man dies shall he live again? All the days of my hard service I will wait, till my change comes.  v15 You shall call and I will answer You: You shall desire the work of Your hands.   Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Beloved, the desire of God is that His creation bring glory and honor to him.  We are created to express our love and worship by doing the good works that He has ordained us to do. When we set aside our desires and take on the Lord's desires, our lives take on new meaning, new excitement, higher and higher, from glory to glory!  We will be in Embakasi, Nairobi, August 31-Sept 2 for an outdoor crusade.  This is brother Sammy Bosire's home church territory  For me it is coming full circle, back to Nairobi where I first met Sammy and preached in 2010 on my first trip to Kenya. Keep us lifted up in prayer that many will come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, that His name will be lifted high above every name in Nairobi.  We are also moving forward with the final phase of construction at Living Water Orphanage.  Pray about your part in seeing the kingdom move forward here in Kenya.  May God bless you as you pray!

Come Unto Me

Dear beloved:  pics: Poster for Dar es Salaam Crusade, Aug. 8-12; maize harvest at Living Water Farm
Matthew 11:28 "Come unto Me, all you labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. v29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am lowly and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. v30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." Matt 9:37 Then He said to the disciples, " The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. v38 Therefore, beseech the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers into His harvest."
Beloved, I ask for your diligence in praying the next week for the Tanzania Crusade, that the Lord will send forth laborers for a mighty harvest of souls for His kingdom.  Many great worship leaders from across the country of Tanzania will be there to help raise up the name of Jesus in Dar es Salaam, city of six million people.  When the Lord showed me in a dream He was opening the door for me to go to Africa, I was holding a bag of maize in my left hand and a Bible in my right hand.  The maize represents the harvest of souls and also the provision necessary to do the the work. Behind me on the platform was a grain silo filled to overflowing with big ears of maize.  The harvest is plentiful!  Thank you for your prayers and support.  May God bless all those involved in this crusade, and you prayer warriors as well!

Dream Team USA

Dear beloved: pics, Dream Team USA after church; maize harvesting crew resting in shade for lunch
1 Kings 18:21 The Elijah said to all the people, "How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him, but if Baal, follow him. But the people answered him not a word. v24  "Then you (people of Baal) call on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord; and the God who answers by fire, He is God."
Beloved, there is only one God, and He is the one who answers by fire.  When the Holy Spirit was poured out on all mankind, it came with fire!  Where are you in your walk with the Lord today, do you have the fire burning inside of you?  Team USA came with fire, and they helped kindle some fires here in Kenya.  You can't come here and and halt between two opinions, you are either all in or out.  May God bless them for their commitment and sacrifice.  Join with Gather the Outcasts as we finish the construction of the Living Water children's home in Kenya.  Also looking forward to the crusade in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania in a couple of weeks.  We are going down there to light some fires as well.  Thank you for your prayers and support, may God bless you as you pray!

Jesus is Life!

Dear beloved: Pics left, with Pygmie villagers in Burundi; right, Chad with New Hope Preschoolers. Kenya
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. v2 He was in the beginning with God. v3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. v4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.  John 8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them saying, " I am the light of the world, He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life." John 10:10 "The thief does not come but to steal, kill, and destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."
Beloved, the deep darkness is covering the land, even the whole earth.  More and more people are taking their own life, because they have no joy or purpose for living.  Even the rich and famous, who seemingly have all this world has to offer, find it empy and lonely when they reach the top.  Jesus is the antidote for a life with no purpose, He came to give us abundant life.  I pray that all of you are living the abundant life today.  Please pray about your part in partnering with Gather the Outcasts Ministry as we take the good news of the abundant life to the crusades in Africa.   We are also building an orphanage in Kenya to care for forty children, so they can also know the life of Jesus. What a joy it is to share the life of Jesus with others.  God bless you as you pray!

God Bless America

Dear beloved: Pics, left, Colby, Kansas; with Pastor John, Masai brother from Kenya at IHOP in Kansas City
Genesis 28:12 And Jacob had a dream, and behold, a ladder was set on the earth with its top reaching to heaven; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. v13 And behold, the Lord stood above it and said, "I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie, I will give it to you and to your descendants. 14. Your descendants shall also be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread out to the west and the east, and to the north and to the south; and in you and in your seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed."
Beloved, God is affirming the blessings of the kingdom upon America.  People strive to come here from nations all over the world, to experience the freedom, the rights and privileges that we enjoy.  They also come to soak in the spiritual atmosphere, as America is the nation God raised up to send and receive misssionaries.  "In God We Trust" is printed on our money.  We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts Ministry as we go to the nations of Africa to share the good news of the gospel. The body of Christ is growing very fast all over Africa, the people there are hungry for hope and the good news. Pray about your part in sharing the hope that does not disappoint.  May God bless you as pray!

Stand in the Gap

Dear beloved: Pics, Hollywood Prayer Network Legacy Event; HPN Legacy National Day of Prayer 2018
Ezekiel 22:29 "The people of the land have practiced oppression and committed robbery, and they have wronged the poor and needy and have oppressed the sojourner without justice. v30 And I searched for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one."  Isaiah 60:1 "Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. v2 For behold, darkness will cover the earth, and deep darkness the peoples; But the Lord will rise upon you, and His glory will appear upon you."
Beloved, the glory of the Lord is shining forth from Hollywood! Hundreds gathered together recently in Hollywood for the Hollywood Prayer Network Legacy Event. Committed prayer warriors are standing in the gap for people in the entertainment industry. Speak words of blessings over those in the industry who are getting the message of Jesus out to the nation in many media forums. Even people in Africa watch the movies and television programs coming out of Hollywood. We want to be in the midst of wherever God is moving on the earth. Thank you so much for your prayers and support of Gather the Outcasts Ministry.   God bless you as you pray!

If My People

Dear beloved: Pics, looking over the Rocky Mountains of Colorado; Santa Monica Beach, California
2 Chronicles 7:14 If My people who are called by My name, will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and forgive their sin, and heal their land. v15 Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place.  Phil 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; v7 and the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Beloved, I was blessed to be in Hollywood at the National Day of Prayer with over 400 writers, producers, and actors who participate in the Hollywood Prayer Network.  The Network is made up of people in the industry who are also Christians, and see their craft as a medium for God to use to change the heart and destiny of this great nation. God is moving in Hollywood! The whole earth is filled with His glory, and He is clearing out the old in Hollywood to make room for it.  God also opened some big doors for Gather the Outcasts while I was there, may be something in the offing that I can speak about at a future date. It is exciting to watch God move on the earth, He wants dominion over every facet of life not only with you, but in every realm of influence in America.  Join with Gather the Outcasts as we take the life saving message of the gospel to the nations, as well as here in America.  May God bless you as you pray!

Your Great Reward

Dear beloved:  Pics, left, children enjoy new tables at New Hope Preschool; Celestine, Cristy, Kaley, Zephania, Chad, at Living Water Orphanage

Gen 15:1 After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, "Do not be afraid, Abram, I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward." v4 And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying, "This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come out of your own body shall be your heir." v5 Then He brought him outside and said, "Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them." And He said to him, "So shall your descendants be." v6 And he believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.

Beloved, God wants to do something new and great for the kingdom in every one of us.  What is God speaking to you today?  He is calling each of us to step out in faith and birth something new for the kingdom, for His glory and His great name. He is your exceedingly great reward! When God called me to preach the word in Africa, I did not know one person on the continent of nearly a billion people.  But I believed, and it was credited to me for righteousness.I invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts Ministry as we begin our ninth year of ministering to the lost in Africa. We are lining up crusades to share the good news of the gospel with many thousands of people. Pray about your part in moving the kingdom forward, in claiming your great reward.  God bless you!

Jesus the Image of God

Dear beloved: Signs in the heavens at a recent Botswana Crusade; right, Gather the Outcasts crusade in Burundi, 2017
Colossians 1:15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. v16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on the earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. v17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. v18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.
Beloved, we are pressing forward with big plans for 2018.  Plans are being made for crusades in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; Burundi, and Kenya. Other crusades on the horizon which cannot be revealed at this time.  Also moving forward with construction on the Living Water Orphanage home in Kenya.  The security fence is under construction as we speak.  After the fence is up we can move forward with the finishing details, stucco, paint, tile, and fixtures. God is moving in Africa, join with Gather the Outcasts as we move with Him. Team USA coming in July if you would like to put your feet on Africa soil.  May God bless you as you pray!
