Loaves and Fishes
Dear beloved; pics, Bujumbura, Burundi Crusade; Beautiful Lake Tanganyika, looking across toward Democratic Republic of Congo
Matt: 14:17 And they said to Him, "We have only five loaves and two fishes." 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 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 when they were finished they took up twelve baskets of fragments that remained. v21 Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
Beloved, Jesus didn't just minister the good news of the gospel, He also got involved in the daily lives of the people wherever He went. In the scripture above, we see Him feeding many thousands, because He had compassion for their hunger! I have recently been taking care of two families that the Lord has brought to me. First, the family of Benjamin, the diabetic ex-muslim boy, who is one of nine children. The mother is gone, the father no work. The children are hungry and have many needs, including Benjamin's ongoing medical issues. The second family, eight children who also need food and shelter. The mother is in the hospital, unable to walk, the step father a drinker who provides little for the family. If you can help Gather the Outcasts feed these families until they get back on their feet it would be greatly appreciated. Partner with us as we reach out to the poor and needy of Kenya. There are other opportunities for giving as we near the end of the year including the Kisii Crusade coming up December 13-16. Furniture and registration needs for the Living Water Children's Home. May God bless you as you pray!
