Dear beloved: Pics above from Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo: left, Prophetess Deborah; right, Robbie, Pastor Paul, Jim, Roger, Pastor Joel
Joel 2:28 "And it shall come to pass afterward, That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. v29 And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. v30 And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth; Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. v31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. v32 And it shall come to pass that whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
In 2012 the Lord gave Prophetess Deborah a dream, and the Holy Spirit spoke to her, "three mzungas (white men) would be coming to Goma to share the gospel in two years." In 2014, right on the Lord's time, Robbie, Roger, and I came into Goma to preach a crusade at Pastor Joel's Deliverance church. And by the way, Deborah is married to a muslim and has six children. You can read her story in Gather the Outcasts: Reaching the Lost in Africa, available at https://www.amazon.com/Gather-Outcasts-Reaching-Lost-Africa/dp/0768409381/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1447038044&sr=1-1&keywords=gather+the+outcasts

Dear beloved: Pics above, children from New Hope Preschool
James 1:27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unspoiled from the world. Matthew 18:3 "Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. v4 Therefore, whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. v5 Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me."
Gather the Outcasts Ministry is offering you an opportunity to show your love to the little children of Kenya. For just $20 per month you can sponsor a child from the New Hope Preschool of our partner church. Your $20 goes to provide uniforms, shoes, sleeping mats, maize meal, tablets and pencils, and teacher's salaries, among other things. Would you consider making this gift of love on this Valentine's Day? Jesus said, " When you have given to the least of these of Mine, you have also given it unto Me." Contact me at email@example.com for more information. God bless you as you pray!

Dear beloved: Border entry into Democratic Republic of Congo at Goma; Praying for Governor of North Kivu, and Mayor of Butembo at Butembo Crusade 2016
Genesis 11:6 And the Lord said, "Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing they propose to do will be withheld from them." v7 " Come, let Us go down and confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech." v8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of the earth, and they ceased building the city. Psalm 2:8 Ask of Me, and I will give You (Jesus) the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession. Acts17:26 (Paul speaking) And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings. Matthew 28:19 " Go therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit."
After trying unsuccessfully to get a visa to go into the Congo from the Congolese Embassy in the United States, I tried a second time from Africa. With the promise of the Governor's staff helping to cut red tape for my application, I showed up at the border, confident I would be given entry. After entering into Congo for a short distance, I was suddenly whisked off to a room full of customs officials, who declared, "You must return to Rwanda, we do not have information that your visa has been approved!" And so I waited for two weeks at a border hotel in Gisenyi, Rwanda, but to no avail. The visa never did come. But Bwana a Safiwe, my team was in Butembo and went ahead with a great crusade, leading thousands to the Lord! God always has a backup plan. God bless you as you pray!

Dear beloved: Pics above: left, 2016 Africa team, l to r, Steve, Chad, Jim, Staci Masai Mara in the background; right, Steve getting ready to go on a lion hunt with the Masai brothers
Matthew 9:36 But when He saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. v37 The he said unto His disciples, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; v38 Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth workers into His harvest."
Beloved, time to start thinking about going into the harvest field in Africa with Gather the Outcasts Ministry. The harvest is truly ripe and ready to gather in. There is a special blessing for those who go forth; it's that thirty, sixty, and hundredfold blessing that comes when we leave our farm, our home, our business, our comfort zone, to go and work for the Lord Jesus. We will be taking a team in July for two weeks to work at the Living Water Orphanage site in Kenya, then wrap up our time there with a trip to the Masai Mara Wildlife Preserve. Just thinking about it should stir up some excitement in you, that's the Holy Spirit stirring up your spirit. Email me for the complete itinerary. God bless you as you pray!
