Countdown to Africa

Dear beloved:  Just a brief update on what is going on with Gather the Outcasts Ministry.  I will be hosting two of the Kenyans this week in Norton, for those of you in the Norton area, if you would like to meet them give me a call or drop me and email at and we can arrange for a meeting for a meal or cup of coffee.  Also, they would like to pick up some spending money for a day or two of work if you have anything going on let me know.  They will be here for a week or two as the camp has closed and they are free to move about until they return to Kenya in mid-August.
Ministry wise, I will be speaking in two churches plus have a big. 9 hour revival at the Norton Correctional Facility scheduled in the next three weeks, so it will be a busy time for the ministry.  I am still short on provision for all that the Lord has opened for me in Africa.  I appreciate and ask for your prayers for the necessary provision.  If you have any questions, email me and I will be happy to fill you in.  You can send mail to Gather the Outcasts Ministry, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654, or go to the website to make a contribution  conveniently and safely with your credit card through PayPal.  Thank you to all who have made a contribution thus far, you are linked arm in arm with those who will come to know the Lord through salvation, healings, and deliverance.  May God bless you as you partner with this ministry in prayer and contributions.  In Christ, Jim

Chains Broken in Scott City

Dear beloved:  I had the privilege to be in Scott City, Kansas over the weekend to share the Africa mission with the First Christian Church of Scott City, as well as pray with Chris and Tammy Lund of City on a Hill Treatment Center near Marienthal. What a blessing it was to be with these precious saints of the Lord, thank you to all who made the trip such a blessing.   Then I was joined Sunday night by some mighty prayer warriors, and we spent 4 hours in a  prayer walk to break off curses and release the Lord's blessings over the area.
Sunday morning in the church I shared some video of the Makarubi Choir from Goma, Republic of Congo, and then sang a song, "Break Every Chain".   God confirmed that chains were indeed breaking as it started to rain over Scott City about that time, praise the Lord!  God wants to refresh this dry and weary land.  I have been hearing from the brothers in Africa, posters are starting to go up in some of the crusade areas.  Plans are now in place for crusades in Goma, Republic of Congo, Busia, Uganda, and Nairobi, Kenya.  We are short on provision to do all that the Lord has called us to do, and I would hate to have to cut back on the agenda, but may be forced to as I need the money in hand to send on ahead for preparations to be made.  Please pray about your part in bringing souls to the Lord on this nation changing tour of three countries in Africa.  \
When you sow into Gather the Outcasts Ministry, you are also sowing into your own destiny, as you are linked arm in arm with those who come to salvation and receive healing through these crusades.  God bless you, in Christ, Jim   Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654  web: click on image to see in full

Africa Mission Fast Approaching

Dear beloved:  Plans are well underway for the upcoming mission to Africa, to be conducted this year from Sept 2-24.  This will be my fourth trip to Africa to preach and conduct pastor conferences and training, and I am looking forward to the day of departure.  This year's agenda includes crusades in Goma, Republic of Congo, Busia province in Uganda, and Nairobi at two unversity campuses.

I invite all of you reading this blog to pray for the Africa mission, to stand in the gap for the lost souls who will hear the word, some possibly for the first time.  Please intercede for them as well as for health and safety for myself and those traveling with me.  At this point we are also short on provision for funding all that God has opened the door for me to do; please pray that God will put the provision into my hand shortly so that plans can go forward.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to email me at  If you have questions regarding funding or donations, please contact me with any questions you have.  You can also make a contribution easily and safely on PayPal on this blog, as well as the website,  May God bless  you abundantly as you partner with this ministry in prayer and sowing your financial gifts.  God bless you, in Christ, Jim

The Lord Brings a Charge

Dear beloved:  As the eyes of the nation are glued upon a trial in Florida, a much bigger case is ongoing that many here in this country are unaware of and are sleeping through.  This case is the the case of the Lord vs. the Inhabitants of the Land.  Hosea 4:1 Hear the word of the Lord, you children of Israel (America), For the Lord brings a charge against the inhabitants of the land:  There is no truth, or mercy, or knowledge of God in the land. v2 By swearing and lying, killing and stealing and committing adultery, They break all restraint, with bloodshed upon bloodshed.  v3 Therefore the land will mourn: And everyone who dwells there will waste away with the beasts of the field and the birds of the air;  Even the fish of the sea will be taken away.

This case has come about because the people have no knowledge of God, and therefore they have become easily deceived and led astray.  Fools follow fools and blind lead the blind, and because of that all fall into the pit.  Proverbs 29:18 Where there is no vision the people are unrestrained.  Because there is no restraint, there is bloodshed upon bloodshed.  People wail and mourn about the wanton slaughter going on in the Chicago neighborhoods, but ignore the wholesale shedding of the blood of the innocents that goes on day after day, year after year; in the name of political correctness and choice, so death stalks every inner city in America until the blood flows, the rivers of blood. This has come about because we are "liberated" in our thinking, we are advanced in our inventions and our technology to the point we no longer need God, we are free of His binding constraints.

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children. And so, we see the results of a nation that has forgotten about God and His word.  The children are slain in the womb, on the streets, abused in the homes, scattered in the divorce courts, left to shift for themselves.  I was recently given a dream by the Lord where I was wading out into deep water, either the ocean or a flood; going out in chest deep water to rescue the perishing. The sea of  humanity in America perishing in the rising waters of unrestraint.  Maybe it speaks of  a coming tsunami or hurricane, another calamity as a result of the recent Supreme Court decisions dismantling traditional, God given marriage. May God have mercy upon us and upon our children.  God bless you prayer warriors, stand firm.  In Christ, Jim
