Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear beloved:  I want to take this time to give a Bwana a Safiwe! Praise to the Lord for His goodness and everlasting kindness, and for His provision for all the open doors of ministry this past year.  I thank you, prayer warriors, for being a big part of the ministry success this past year, and I look forward to participating with you in even greater Kingdom ventures in the years to come.  I receive reports each week from people in Africa about the positive impact of the crusades and pastor training in Kenya and Democratic Republic of Congo, and on this side the prison ministry and radio broadcasts continue to bear much fruit.

I ask you to keep me lifted up in your prayers, for  good health, strength, and expanded territory, as well as these specific requests for Gather the Outcasts projects.  I am still praying for the Lord to move on provision for the orphanage project; first we need land procurement, then a well drilled, then the building constructed.  I am believing I will have the money in hand and a crew with me by next summer when I go back to Africa to preach, that we can move forward with the good plans of the Lord to provide a home for 30 orphaned children.I am also praying for open doors into churches that I may share the Africa mission and the orphanage vision with many here in the States.  I have a prospectus written up that goes into great detail on the construction and oversight on the orphanage project, please email me if you would like to receive that.  I also ask for your prayers this coming weekend, November 29-30, where I will be teaming with War Doves Ministry and Lisa McFarland to conduct a 3 session revival in the Norton Correctional Facility.

Psalm 147:1-8 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 the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. v4 He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name. v5 Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite. v6 The Lord lifts up the humble; He casts the wicked down to the ground. V7 Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; Sing praises on the harp to our God, v8 Who covers the heavens with the clouds, Who prepares rain for the earth, Who makes grass to grow on the mountains.
Let us all give thanks to the Lord for His great bounty, especially here in America!  God bless you as you pray.  in Christ, Jim     Gather the Outcasts Ministry, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654
