Deliverance

 

Dear beloved; pics, Altar call at Tarime, TZ; Crusade; Kirundo, Burundi Crusade 2019

Mark 5:6 When he (Gadarene demoniac) saw Jesus from afar, he ran and worshiped Him. v7 And he cried out, with a loud voice and said, "What have I to do with You, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God that You do not torment me."  V8 For Jesus said to him, "Come out of the man, unclean spirit!"  v9 Then He asked him, "What is your name?"  And he answered, saying, "My name is Legion, for we are many."  v10 The he begged Him earnestly that He would not send them out of the country. 

Beloved, one of the more beautiful moves of God that we consistently see in the crusades is people getting deliverance from witchcraft and other types of demonic oppression. Can people receive deliverance in a minute, in a heartbeat?  In the above scripture, Jesus casts out the unclean spirits and sends them into a herd of swine.  Legion, formerly a dysfunctional, violent outcast living among the tombs, is then seen sitting and clothed, and in his right mind.  And the people who had known him were now afraid. (v15)  When the Holy Spirit and the power of God show up, the demons have to flee, they do not have the authority to stay when they are commanded to go.  Jesus said in Luke 4:18, " I came to to proclaim liberty to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, and to set at liberty those who are oppressed."  We are seeing all this happen at Gather the Outcasts crusades.  All glory goes to God, it is the power of the God to save and deliver.  Apostle Paul said it in 1 Corinthians 2:4, "And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstrations of the Spirit and power; that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God."  Thank you for your prayers and support for the gospel crusades. We are planning to go back to Tanzania in January for crusades in Arusha. Back on the home front in Kenya, we are embarking on a project to build a posho mill (maize flour) business for the church to benefit the people of Makunda village.  We need $2,000 to bring in electricity and purchase all the necessary equipment.  Pray about your part in helping us get it up and going. May God bless you as you pray!

Mbeya Report

 

Dear beloved:  Pics  crowd shot at Uyole, Mbeya TZ; worship choir from one of participating churches

Isaiah 55:10 For as the rain comes down, and snow from heaven, and do not return there but water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, v11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;  It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the purpose for which I sent it. 

Beloved, the Word of God went forth in Mbeya and brought in a great harvest of souls.  Nearly 500 people came forward to make salvation decisions, many young adults and teens.  Many more were delivered of witchcraft spirits, for freedom Christ set them free!  God's power went forth over the crusade grounds for five days, and worship was over the mountain with Bony Mwaitege and Martha Baraka, along with many more local artists and choirs. It was truly a time of joy and jubilation! Check out my facebook page for more great pictures.  We are praying about a summer crusade in Tanzania as the door remains open there for big meetings.  Thank you to all who supported and prayed for the Mbeya crusade, it was truly a memorable time.  I have a new book on spiritual warfare ready to publish, it is called "The Battle is Raging".  I am trusting the Lord for $2,000 to get it published and into your hands, can you pray about your part in helping get it published?  May God bless you as you pray!

Glory in the Lord

 

Dear beloved: Pics, altar call day 3, Mbeya, TZ;  crowd shot, Mbeya Crusade

Jeremiah 9:23 Thus says the Lord, "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; v24 But let him who glories glory in this, That he knows Me and understands Me, That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.  For in these I delight", says the Lord. 

Beloved, we wanted very much to stay up on that high mountain at Uyole, Mbeya, but alas, at the end of the crusade we had to come down and get back to the flatland and the trenches.  Monday, on the way out of town, it was pouring down the rain that the Lord had held off for the five days of the crusade.  It was showers of blessings in the natural that had already been sown in the spirit.  I thought of the scripture above as I remenisced about all the singers, pastors, and church choirs that came to sing, praise, and work for the Lord.  We had such fun together and no one was taking the glory away from the Lord.  The Bible says the "yoke of the Lord is easy, and His burden is light."  We definitely felt that in Mbeya.  We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts Ministry as we take the uplifting, soul saving good news of the gospel to the lost and hurting in Africa. As you send, we are able to go.  Thank you so much for your prayers and support.  God bless you as you pray!

Hosanna in the Highest!

 

Dear beloved:  pics, children at Living Water; stand of cow peas for soil building and green vegetables

Matt 21:8 Then a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road. v9  Then the multitudes who went before, and those who followed after, cried out, saying, " Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!  Hosanna in the highest!" 

Beloved, when Jesus came into Jerusalem, he was given a hero's welcome, and the people hailed him as the prophet from Nazareth of Galilee.  Yet a week later, some of the same crowd participated in the mocking, and eventually the crucifiction of our Lord and Savior.  Jesus saw first hand how fickle the emotions and passion of men can be. Had he not been the Son of God it would have been very easy for Him to abandon the whole mission and retreat to the country.  May God grant us the mercy to always stay humble and thank Him in every situation, for we know that we, too, can be fickle and easily persuaded.  May we grow in maturity to be steadfast in our love, devotion, service of our Lord Jesus.  Gather the Outcasts is dedicated to the idea that Jesus wants every person to grow into the image of Him.  That gives us reason to keep pressing forward, to not look back but keep looking ahead to the upward prize of the call of God in Christ Jesus!  We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts as we take the good news of the gospel to the nations of Africa.  May God bless you as you pray!

High Praise!

 

Dear beloved:  Pics, Mbeya 2021 Crusade Poster; Mbeya, 2019

Psalm 147  Praise the Lord!  For it is good to sing praises to our God; For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful. v2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem; He gathers together the outcasts of Israel. v3 He heals up the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.  v4 He counts the number of stars; He calls them all by name. v5  Great is the Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite. 

Beloved, at Gather the Outcasts crusades, we believe in giving the Lord the high praise that He is due.  A good portion of the budget for each crusade is spent on bringing in the best singers and worship leaders possible. Praise opens up people's hard hearts so they can receive the good news of the gospel.  Africans love to dance and sing, and the messages of the songs also speak to the people in ways that sometimes the preaching can't.  The Psalmist says, "Praise is beautiful."  Psalm 40:3 says, "He has put a new song in my mouth- Praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord".  So our praise can cause others to fear the Lord,and desire to come to Him.  Thank you for your prayers and support.  We could still use some more travel money, as we will be taking Covid test both going out and coming back to Kenya.  We invite you to support this great crusade.  May God bless you as you pray!

Commander of the Lord's Army

 

Dear beloved: Pics, Children at Living Water with new Christmas outfits; praying for a crippled man at Tarime Crusade, TZ

Joshua 5:13  And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a Man stood opposite him with his sword drawn in His hand.  And Joshua went to Him, and said to Him, "Are you for us, or for our adversaries?" v14 So He said, "No, but as Commander of the army of the Lord I have now come."  And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, "What does my Lord say to His servant?" v15 Then the Commander of the Lord's army said to Joshua, "Take your sandal off your foot, for the place where you stand is holy."  And Joshua did so.

Beloved, the end time battle between the forces of darkness and the forces of light is raging across the earth.  As warriors in the Lord's army, we are called to engage the enemy. and we need to live our lives worthy of the calling our Commander has placed upon us.  This whole earth is holy ground; the earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, the enemy is the trespasser, he thinks he rules the earth.  We are called to take the ground we stand on, to "go unto all the nations", to reach out and love those who who seem unlovable, to pray for those who seem unreachable, to touch those who are untouchable. The Lord has now come to help us in the battle, the time is growing short.  We invite you to stand with Gather the Outcasts as we go back to Mbeya, Tanzania, for a great four day crusade in February.  You can join us as part of the evangelism team prior to the crusade, or be a part of the Lord's army with your prayers and donations. The Commander is looking for willing soldiers, this battle is not for the faint.  Pray about your part in helping us gather for the kingdom in Tanzania.  May God bless you as you pray!

The Word Became Flesh

 

Dear beloved: Pics, Julia leading worship at Tarime, TZ, crusade;  Praying for the sick at the altar call

John 1:12 And as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become the children of God, to those who believe in His name. v13 To those who were born not of blood, nor of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.  v14. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 

Beloved, the times they are a changing.  People are getting hungrier for the Word of God.  The Word is what pierces people's hearts, it is sharper than any two edged sword, able to divide the soul from the spirit.  The Lord is blessing the country of Tanzania for their faithfulness in prayer and believing that He would deliver them from the agony of the corona virus.  The crusade in Tarime was very successful, we had over 400 salvation decisions, many more healings too numerous to mention.  Many people also got deliverance from witchcraft demons, the prayer warriors in the deliverance tent were busy all day long for four days.  Thank you for your prayers and support for the Tanzania mission, we are already making plans to go back for another in February.  On the local note, our Living Water Church is needing a dependable water supply, we have plans to drill a borehole (hand drill) and case the hole.  The equipment and labor costs $1,000. School fees are also coming up after January 1. Pray about your part in helping us.  All donations to Gather the Outcasts Ministry are tax deductible, pray about supporting us in your year end giving.  May God bless you as you pray!

Celebrating Ten Years

Dear beloved: pics, Ngozi, Burundi Crusade 2015; children at Living Water Children's Home

Revelation 22:1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. v2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 

Beloved, In September, Gather the Outcasts celebrated a milestone of ten years of preaching the gospel in Africa. It all began with a short term mission to preach in Kibera, the biggest slum in Africa, in central Nairobi.  Then again in 2011, a five day crusade in the Kamakunji grounds in Kibera, where 700 people accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior!  When I went out on the platform to preach in the Kibera Crusade, I carried with me a white bag filled with big ears of white maize; the front of the bag had written on it in large, black letters, "Revelation 22".  That was the scripture the Lord gave me in a dream when He showed me He was opening the door for me to preach in Africa.  Revelation 22, a new heaven and a new earth.  Although there have been many trials and suffering over the years, the joy of serving the Lord in Africa has surpassed all the struggles.  The Lord has been with me to strengthen and guide me, for that I am very grateful.  Thank you to all who have prayed for and supported this ministry, and for those who would like to see even greater harvests in the days ahead, you are welcome to partner with us.  May God bless you as you pray!

Three Thousand Souls

 

Dear beloved:  Pics, baptisms at the Living Water Church, Kenya

Acts 2:41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized, and that day about three thousand were added to them.  v42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and prayers. v43 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. 

Beloved, we are overjoyed at the response of the people in Makunda village, we are seeing many coming to the Lord Jesus.  Last week another 13 baptisms, the angels in heaven are rejoicing along with us.  The Living Water Church is a fulfillment of a prophecy spoken twenty years ago over the piece of land where the church now sits. God's word does not return to Him void!  The video of the Children's Home and Living Water church is now on youtube, clik on this link to see the video, you will enjoy it.

We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts as we gather in souls for the kingdom in Kenya and East Africa!   May God bless you as you pray.

Feast of Tabernacles

 

Dear beloved;  Pics, crusades in Tanzania, Mbeya, and Mwanza district, in the last year

Leviticus 23:34  Speak to the children of Israel saying, "The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord.    John 1:14  And the Word became flesh and dwelt (tabernacled) among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.  

Beloved, we are in the time of Feast of Tabernacles, this is the time when Jesus will return, and we will behold His glory again.  Are you ready for His return?  This is the time the Israelites were made to dwell in booths, as a reminder that the Lord took care of them for forty years in the wilderness, where they dwelt in booths and drank from the Rock.  He is our keeper and our ever present help in times of trouble.  Here in Kenya we are still locked out of crusades, but to me that means the harvest will be even greater when things get back going again.  Pray we can get back on the crusade trail soon.  We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts here in Africa, where we are ministering to the lost in Makunda at our new church, as well as providing a good home now for 20 orphan children. Thank you so much for your prayers and support, God bless you as you pray.
