Nairobi Terror Attack


Dear beloved:  New storehouse completed; All night kesha 2013, before Westgate Mall attack, Nairobi
Habakkuk 1:2 O Lord, how long shall I cry, and You not hear? Even cry out to You, "Violence!" and You will not save. v3 Why do You show me iniquity, and cause me to see trouble? For plundering and violence are before me; there is strife, and contention arises, v4 therefore the law is powerless, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; therefore perverse judgment proceeds.
Beloved, news of the terrorist attack in Nairobi this week brought back painful memories of 2013 when the Westgate Mall was attacked in Nairobi.  I praise God that He had 200 of us stationed as watchmen on the wall at an all night kesha not far from the mall.  We were there on Friday night, then came back for an all day church service on Sunday.  The attack began on Saturday and went on for four days.  It's possible the Lord used us to stand in the gap for Kenya and help minimize the suffering, some questions we won't know the answers until we get to heaven. The Bible says that in the last days, perilous times will come. Men will be unloving,unforgiving, slanderers, without self control, brutal, despisers of good.( 2 Timothy 3:3) We are here now!  Partner with Gather the Outcasts Ministry as we stand in the gap for Kenya and other nations in Africa.  The soul saving message of Jesus is for all people.  God bless you as you pray!

Living Water Fellowship


Dear beloved; Pics, Living Water Fellowship, Kenya; view from hotel room, Bujumbura, Burundi
Matthew 10:12 And when you go into a house, greet it. v13 If the household is worthy,.let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. v14 and whoever will not receive you, nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake the dust off from your feet.
Beloved, one of the greatest challenges to the spread of the gospel of Jesus Christ in Africa is the rise and expansion of Isam.  How do you win Muslims to the Lord Jesus? One person at a time!  We have begun a new fellowship at the Living Water Children's home in Kenya, in the village of Makunda.  The village is about 75% muslim in makeup.  In just two meetings we have now had eight new converts.  We are baptizing them in the river down at the bottom of the shamba.  Zephaniah and I are copastoring the fellowship, we are going to the homes and praying for the sick and those in need. Pray for this fellowship to continue to grow and flourish, that the whole village will be transformed by the power of the gospel. As for the Living Water Children's Home, we are pursuing the registration of an existing ministry in Kenya so we can get the home registered and operating.  I am trusting the Lord for $3,000 for registration expenses, plus another $3,000 for beds and kitchen supplies.  Please pray about your part in getting the home up and operating.  Thank you for your prayers and support.  May God bless you as you pray!

The Greatest Gift


Dear beloved:  Pics above, Sharing the Good News with the Kisii; Ev. Douglas and Kemmy leading worship
Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. v7 Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forevermore.
Beloved, many people search the stores looking for that perfect gift to give their loved ones during this Christmas season. We thank God for that.  Gather the Outcasts is in Ikabo village in remote Kisii county in Kenya.  We came to give these precious souls the gift that keeps on giving, the joy of knowing Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.  The Lord has blessed us with good weather, and thousands are coming out to hear the good news of the gospel, to sing praise and worship Him, and to receive prayers for healing and salvation. Thank you so much for your prayers and support that allows us to reach places like this in Kenya.  We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts so that we can reach even more people in Africa in the months and years to come.  Consider becoming a monthly partner, or a one time year end gift would be greatly appreciated. All donations are tax deductible.  You can rejoice with us and the angels in heaven as many names are written in the Lamb's book of life!   May God bless you as you pray!

The Trinity


Dear beloved:  Pics  Gather the Outcasts Book; Burundi Crusade, 2017

Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a Son, and you will call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.
Beloved, many here in Africa do not have a good understanding of the trinity.  If you read God's word, the trinity is all through it.  Let US make man in OUR image (Gen 1:26).  God's perfect plan of redemption for all mankind included His only begotten Son, who came to earth to save us from our sins.(John 3:16)  And His name shall be called Immanuel, God with us. (Matt. 1:23).  We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts as we take the good news of Jesus Christ to the nations of Africa.  Get a copy of the book, "Gather the Outcasts: Reaching the Lost in Africa" and the gospel crusades will come alive for you.  You can send or you can go!  May God bless you as you pray.

Loaves and Fishes


Dear beloved; pics, Bujumbura, Burundi Crusade; Beautiful Lake Tanganyika, looking across toward Democratic Republic of Congo
Matt: 14:17 And they said to Him, "We have only five loaves and two fishes." v18 He said, "bring them here to Me." v19 Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and two fish, and looking to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes.  v20 So they all ate and were filled, and when they were finished they took up twelve baskets of fragments that remained. v21 Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
Beloved, Jesus didn't just minister the good news of the gospel, He also got involved in the daily lives of the people wherever He went.  In the scripture above, we see Him feeding many thousands, because He had compassion for their hunger!  I have recently been taking care of two families that the Lord has brought to me.  First, the family of Benjamin, the diabetic ex-muslim boy, who is one of nine children.  The mother is gone, the father no work.  The children are hungry and have many needs, including Benjamin's ongoing medical issues.  The second family, eight children who also need food and shelter.  The mother is in the hospital, unable to walk, the step father a drinker who provides little for the family.  If you can help Gather the Outcasts feed these families until they get back on their feet it would be greatly appreciated.  Partner with us as we reach out to the poor and needy of Kenya.  There are other opportunities for giving as we near the end of the year including the Kisii Crusade coming up December 13-16.  Furniture and registration needs for the Living Water Children's Home.  May God bless you as you pray!

A Man's Gift


Dear beloved:  Pictures, weeding crew at Living Water shamba; Burundi Crusade, 2017
Proverbs 18:16 A man's gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men (kings).  Proverbs 19:17 He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord, and He will pay back what he has given.  Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.
Beloved, next week I will be in Burundi for the crusade in Bujumbura.  I have received an invitation letter from the Vice President of the country inviting me to Burundi. Other high officials of the government, including the President are planning to attend.  Pray that the outpouring of the Holy Spirit will shake the nation of Burundi!  Back home in Kenya, the ex muslim boy, now named Benjamin, came to New Hope church last Sunday and gave his confession of faith. He and his mother will be baptized next week when she comes back from Nairobi. His father told me last week they were just waiting for the boy to die from complications related to diabetes when I went to pray for him. God gave him a mighty healing!  Pray for this family as there are eight children and the father in the family yet to come to the Lord Jesus.  God is moving through the Living Water Orphanage to transform lives in the village of Makunda. We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts as we go to the harvest, one nation and one person at a time.  Thank you for your prayers and support. God bless you!

More Blessings


Dear beloved: Pics, First direct flight from Kenya to America, New York City;  Masai with hand made sandals
Genesis 22:14 And Abraham called the name of the place, The Lord Will Provide; as it is said this day, in the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided. 15 Then the Angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time out of heaven, v16 and said, "By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son- v17 blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore, and your descendants shall possess the gates of their enemies."
Beloved, God is pouring out more favor on Kenya. This week history was made in the first ever direct flight from Nairobi to New York City, USA.  Flight time and ticket prices will be drastically reduced from the previous 24 hour typical journey.  More Americans than ever will come to bless the people of Kenya with soul saving missions, children's homes, medical clinics, and tourism adventures.  As we set our feet on Kenya soil, we will possess the gates of the enemy here in this beautiful land.  My Masai watchman in the picture above is open for business and anxious to sell the Masai hand made sandals.  We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts Ministry as we take the soul winning message of Jesus Christ to Kenya and other nations of Africa. Next up, Burundi Crusade coming November 16-18. Still looking for travel money of $1,000 to get to Burundi.  Then comes Kilgoris, Kenya, coming December 5-9.  Thank you and God bless you for your prayers and support.

Blessing and Favour


Dear beloved:  Kenyan twins who were cojoined at birth; right, Bujumbura, Burundi Pastor's meeting for upcoming crusade.
Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the thoughts (plans) that I think towards you," says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.  v12  Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. v13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all of your heart. v14 I will be found by you," says the Lord, "and I will bring you back from your captivity."
Beloved, the prophet Jeremiah spoke to the children of Judah who were carried away to Babylon, but they also apply to us in our present day. God wants to bless us and give us favor, He wants to prosper us and set us free from any bondage we are under.  The twins shown in the picture above, Blessing and Favour, were cojoined at birth and separated in a 23 hour operation a year and a half ago.  They recently celebrated their fourth birthday in good health.  I believe they are a prophetic sign for Kenya: God wants to pour out blessings and favour upon this country..  But the blessings are tied to them turning back to the Lord Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith! I invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts as we lift up the name of Jesus in East Africa.  Burundi Crusade upcoming, the above picture is of the Bujumbura pastors planning the crusade.  The Mayor of Bujumbura, city of half million, chaired the meeting!  Other government officials are planning to attend the crusade, it will be a nation changer! Still need travel money of $1,000 and support for Kilgoris, Kenya crusade coming up in December.  The gospel must be preached and then the end will come.  Thank you for your prayers and support, may God bless you as you pray!

Good Seed


Dear beloved: Pics, Zephaniah looking over maize and bean crop; Dan from Dream Team USA checking out milk cow
2 Corinthians 9:6 Now may he who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness,  v11 while you are enriched in everything for all liberality (generosity) , which causes thanksgiving through us to God. v12 For the administration of this service not only supplies the needs of the saints, but also is abounding through many thanksgivings to God.
Beloved, God gives us the opportunity to partner with Him to see His work accomplished all over the world. Through your generosity, many will give thanks to God, even those who don't know Him will give thanks for the things they see.  Just this week we had the opportunity to pray for a teenage boy in the village of the Living Water Home.  He is severely diabetic, and he and all his family are Muslim. While I was working at the farm, his mother asked me to come pray; after the prayers, he is now well, his blood sugar is down to normal.  But even greater than the healing, both the boy and his mother confessed Jesus as their Lord and Savior and want to start going to church.  Bwana a Safiwe!  Praise the name of the Lord Jesus!  First sow good seed, then comes the harvest.  Thank you for your prayers and support.  May God bless you as you pray!

Sowing and Reaping


Dear beloved:  Pics, boy digging weeds, the future of Kenya; with Pastor Richard Wanzala, Gospel Lighthouse
2 Corinthians 9:6 But this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. v7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or out of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver. v8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.  v9 As it is written, "He has dispersed abroad, He has given to the poor; His righteousness endures forever."
Beloved, the needs in Kenya are great. Oh that I would have all sufficiency in all things, and abundance for every good work!  Plans are underway for a crusade in December in Kilgoris.  Kilgoris is in Southwest Kenya, a Masai town.  They are in great need of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  I am trusting God for $3,000 for that crusade.  The Burundi crusade in November is funded, I need $1,000 travel money to get there as it is a long ways from Nairobi and I must fly.  I also have a book ready to publish, a book of prophetic visions for the future America.  I am trusting the Lord for $2,000 to get the book printed and in distribution. Pray about your part in moving these kingdom projects forward. Thank you so much for your faithfulness in prayer and support!  May God bless you as you pray.
