Dear beloved: Time is rapidly approaching for the Gather the Outcasts Africa Crusades 2013, and I am very excited to share with you prayer warriors the itinerary, and wrap up some final thoughts before flying over to Africa. I ask that you post this message in a convenient place where you can look at it and pray at the appropriate time, as prayer in the battle is what brings on the greatest victory! I look forward to a great harvest of souls, as well as signs, wonders, and miracles to follow my footsteps every place my feet go in Africa. Much preparation and advance prayer have already gone into these crusades, and so I ask that you join in and keep these events lifted up and bathed in intercession.
As many of you may know, rebel attack on the city of Goma, Republic of Congo, has caused great shock to the city and the surrounding areas. There is already a refugee crisis rebuilding around Goma, as well as a United Nations offensive against the rebels, so that city of one million people where we ministered just a year ago is in a state of turmoil. For that reason I am not planning a Goma crusade, and will be leaving a few days later than planned, but I thank God for He was looking out for my safety all along. Please pray for the precious saints in Goma, for the uprising to be put down quickly, and for strength to endure hardships that all this brings on the saints in Goma.
So my itinerary looks like this: I will be leaving Norton September 6th for Kansas City and spend a couple days at the International House of Prayer prayer room. I will then fly from Kansas City, to Detroit, to Amsterdam, to Kigale, Rwanda, then to Kampala, Uganda. From there will go by car to Busia, Uganda for a three day crusade and pastor conference September 13-15, hosted by Pastor David Odong and Pastor Lucas Obanda.
From Uganda I will go to Kisumu, Kenya to fly to Nairobi, Kenya on September 17th. I will be speaking at Daystar University in Nairobi on Sept. 18th, then conducting a 3 day crusade at Polytechnic University in inner city Nairobi September 20-22. We will also have an outreach to a local prison and an orphanage as part of the crusade, as well as training for leaders of the Christian Student Union, hosted by Brother Duke Umbagi of the Union. It is interesting to note the Lord's timing in all this, September 14 is the Day of Atonement, and September 19-20 is Sukkot, or Feast of Tabernacles, of the Feast of Ingathering. This is the feast of the greatest harvest in the agricultural activities of Israel, when the last of the grapes and grains were brought in and stored for keeping.
A brother at the prison was given a vision of two giant demonic angels who were dressed in traditional African dresses; bright colors with headdresses, they were standing as if watching over a principality. I came into the area operating under the power and authority of Jesus Christ, and the two entities fell over; they could not stand against the power of the King of Kings. Romans 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. May God grant this servant His power and anointing to accomplish all that He has planned for these crusades.
Pray for safe travel, good health, and souls, souls, souls, for the Kingdom of God. If you would still like to contribute to help bring in this great harvest, the Lord would bless you accordingly with the measure that you measure out. At this point I am about at break even, but could use some more provision for contingencies, and to bless the saints over in Africa with bibles and and other necessities they can always use.
