Dear beloved: Pics above, left, children needing sponsors, Jim and Chad at the Living Water spring; bottom left, Chad with the school children, digging the footings at the Living Water site
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence (conviction) of things not seen, v2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. v3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. Romans 4:17 as it is written, "I have made you, Abraham, a father of many nations", in the presence of Him whom he believed-God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being those things which do not exist as though they did.
Faith is the substance that activates our relationship with God. Without exercising our faith, our relationship is very shallow and easily doubted. When we exercise our faith, our relationship with God is strengthened, and we see things in the future just as God already knows them. Three years ago a prophetic word was spoken over me, "Jim, now it is just your vision and God together on this Living Water Orphanage project, but in the years ahead, many will see the vision and they will come." Beloved, would you catch the vision with me and step out in faith to get this home finished this year? We have the building permits in place and the footings dug. We are trusting the Lord for $50,000 to get the home finished and ready to move into. We are also still in need of sponsors for 13 of the 29 children, would you consider being a sponsor at $20 per month? This is the seventh year of Gather the Outcasts Ministry coming to Africa to bring the good news of the gospel, let this also be the year of completion.

Dear beloved: Pics above, top, Jim praying for the lame and sick, Sammy Bossana, my "Elisha", a fisher of men; bottom, many muslim school children among the crowd
The coastal region of Kilifi, Kenya is a stonghold of muslims, it is just down the coast from Somalia. The darkness here can sometimes be overwhelming, it tends to suffocate. But God is breaking through in KIlifi with the light of the gospel. Many muslim school children are stopping by the crusade to listen to the word and the good worship music. Where there is darkness the light shines brighter! We had a breakthrough tonight with some salvation decisions, most likely muslims, and also many came forward to receive prayers for healing and deliverance. Bwana a safiwe!
Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine. For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.v2 For behold, the darkness has covered the earth. And deep darkness the people. But the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. John 1:4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. v5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
We have one more day of the crusade in Kilifi, keep the prayers coming for the light to get even brighter.

Correction from post of 9/20/2016 The crowd pictured was from the Burundi Crusade 2016, not Mumias, Kenya.

Dear beloved: More scenes from the recent Kampala Earth Shaking Revival, Bottom right, The lady I prayed for at her house was very sick, possibly AIDS. People brought her to the church two days later and laid her down on a mat at the back of the church. She stayed for the whole three hours of service. God is healing her, she left with a smile!
Matthew 9:35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. v36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion, for they were weary and scattered, like sheep without a shepherd. v37 Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. v38 Therefore, pray for the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into the harvest."
I will be leaving for Kilifi, Kenya, on the coast near Mombasa, next Monday for a three day outdoor crusade and pastor conference, September 22-24. This event is being staged in the heart of the enemy territory in Kenya, so I ask for increased prayer covering. This will be the last big event for me in this preaching tour of five countries in Africa. I am short about $1,500 to fulfill my budget obligations for this event. They are anticipating a crowd of ten to twenty thousand. Would you help send forth laborers into the harvest, would you pray about your part in seeing this crusade be a great success? The Lord is preparing a table for us in the presence of our enemies.
May God bless you as you pray. In Christ, Jim, Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654 501c3 Paypal at www.gathertheoutcasts.com or www.jimrowh.blogspot.com email: email@example.com

Dear beloved: Above pics, left worship choirs at Holy Spirit church in Kampala, Uganda; right, brother Augustine with choir
Haggai 2:6 This is what the Lord Almighty says, " Yet once more in a little while, I will shake the heavens and earth, the sea and dry land. v7 and I will shake all the nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory", says the Lord of hosts.
Yesterday we had an earthshaking meeting, at the time of highest praise we had an earthquake here in Kampala that was felt all over the region. The church shook, the water bottles fell over. I know the Lord was shaking the region as a result of the prayers and the praises of His people in the Holy Spirit Church. The meetings have been breathtaking, the heavens and earth are responding. To God be the glory! Many healed and delivered from bondage of witchcraft, sickness, all kinds of pains. It has been an incredible week. Thank you so much for your prayers and support for these meetings, heaven met earth here. I will try to post some videos when I get back to Kenya.
