Matthew 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. v4 Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted. v5 Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth (land). v6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.
Beloved, to work with these precious saints in Africa is pure joy. They are poor in sprit, and meek for sure. They work the land with hand tools, planting one seed at a time, harvesting one stalk at a time. So also with Gather the Outcasts Ministry, we are planting seeds one at a time, and harvesting when the fields are ripe, in some places one at a time, at the crusades by the thousands. Would you join us in prayer and support? There are many ways you can participate: $20 per month buys food and uniforms for the preschool children, we also need support for purchase of sound systems and advertising for the crusades in Tanzania and Burundi. We are also trusting the Lord for $8,000 to finish the slab at the Living Water Orphanage in Kenya. Look up, for the fields are ripe with the harvest! God bless you!

Dear beloved: Pictures above, distributing maize to villagers, new crop maize at Living Water Farm
Matthew 14:16 But Jesus said to them, "They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat." v17 And they said to Him, "We have here only five loaves and two fish." v18 He said, "Bring them here to Me." v19 Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes. v20 So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained.
Beloved, here is a message from our partner church pastor in Kenya: "Hello brother, today there was many people in service expecting more relief foods supply.we gave nothing today as we had nothing left. If God is still providing please continue praying for them in this month. Next month maize will be OK to used. "
Please pray about your part in helping to ease the hunger among our people over in Kenya. Maize bags are $55 each, we need to supply for another couple of weeks. May God bless and multiply your gift, so that there will be baskets full of the remaining fragments. God bless you!

1 Peter 2:4 And coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected by men, but choice and precious in the sight of God, v5 and you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. v6 For this is contained in scripture: "Behold, I lay in Zion a choice stone, a precious corner stone, And he who believes in Him shall not be disappointed."
Beloved, the Apostle Peter says each of us is a living stone, being built into a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices to God. At the Living Water Orphanage in Kenya, we are also building up choice stones, to put together a building that will be a loving home for forty orphan children. We invite you to join in this kingdom project, that this may be your spiritual sacrifice to bring glory to the name of Jesus. We will be in Kenya in thirty days, we would like to pour the slab for the building, as we will have a team with many eager hands for the work. We are trusting the Lord for $8,000 to be able to accomplish this part of the project. Would you pray about becoming a living stone? May God bless you as you pray!

Dear beloved: Pictures above, left, food distribution at partner church in Kenya; right, children to sponsor at preschool
2 Corinthians 5:9 Therefore, we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. v10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 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, v20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I will be with you always, even to the end of the age."
Beloved, when we stand before Christ, we will have to make an account of all we have done, good or bad, according to the gits and resources the Lord Jesus has entrusted to us. What will you have to show for your time here on the earth? This is not a judgment for salvation, but for rewards in heaven. We invite you to participate in kingdom projects with Gather the Outcasts Ministry. Sponsor a child @ $20 per month, send money for hunger relief, donate for the crusades in Tanzania; there is even still time to join the Africa mission leaving in July for two weeks. We are commanded to "go therefore", if you can't go please pray about sending! God bless you as you pray.
