Praying for Our Brothers and Sisters in Africa
Dear beloved: My heart is bleeding with the people of Kenya tonight, as I have received word of the terrorist attacks at Garissa University, even some pictures taken of the terrible carnage inside the university. Please join me in keeping the people of Kenya lifted up in prayer, and especially those families who have lost loved ones in this horrific attack, as well as for those who are wounded and missing. I have had the privilege the last two years of ministering with the students from many different universities in Kenya, and they have blessed me greatly. Many are very innocent and love the Lord Jesus with all their heart, they have a great childlike love for the Word and for the Kingdom. Many in universities are also there because of great sacrifice by their families, and are often the first in their family to pursue a college degree. The pictures above were taken at KIHBT University in 2013, at an all night keesha meeting held the night before the Westgate Mall attack in Nairobi. The Lord had us positioned to pray all night; of course He knew what was coming, even if we didn't.
Father, I pray Isaiah 54:17 over the country and the universities of Kenya. I pray that no weapon formed against them shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against them in judgment, You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me, saith the Lord.
John 10:10 The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but I have come to give life, and to give it abundantly.
John 8:44 The devil was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
Beloved, the hope for Kenya and all mankind is Jesus Christ, the risen Son of God. Gather the Outcasts Ministry will stand with the people of Kenya and preach the word in the open doors there, that Jesus will be lifted up. We will not shrink back in fear as the devil would desire. Beloved in Kenya, we stand with you, we encourage you to put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. (Eph. 6:13)
Plans for the orphanage near Mumias, Kenya are full speed ahead. The hope for the children in Kenya is to come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. I will also be going back to Kenya and East Africa to preach crusades again this summer. Stand with us as we take the message of Hope to the precious people in Africa. God bless you, in Christ, Jim
