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.

My Lord

 
Dear beloved: Pics, Burundi Crusade 2016; New Hope Preschool children, Kenya
Psalm 110:1  The Lord said to my Lord, "Sit at my right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool." v2 The Lord shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of Your enemies! v3 Your people shall be volunteers in the day of Your power; in the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth.  Psalm 23:1  The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.  v2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside still waters. v3 He restores my soul; He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
Beloved, King David had divine revelation of the knowledge of the Holy One; Jesus had made Himself known to the king of Israel.  Yesterday I had lunch with a muslim lady who is very curious about Jesus.  I pray that the Lord will reveal Himself to her as well, and satisfy her hunger and thirst.  I call her Rachel, please pray with me for her to know Jesus as her Lord and Savior.  The Burundi crusade has been postponed until November due to complications regarding the permit, and we have shifted the venue to Bujumbura, the capital city.  The President of the country and other high officials are wanting to come.  Pray with me that Burundi will be transformed when the power of Jesus comes into that city!  And here in Kenya, still looking for provision to finish the Living Water Orphanage project, we are close to getting all the finish work done. Email me if you have questions.  May God bless you as you pray about your part in gathering the kingdom of God in Africa!

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!
