Dear beloved:  Pictures above; 1. planting trees on Living Water Orphanage Land near Mumias, Kenya  2. tree planting crew, Pastor Lucas family. The young man at top left, Stephen, is the one who had HIV/AIDS four years ago when I came to preach crusade in Mumias.  We prayed for him and the Lord healed him of AIDS  3.  crusade meetings in Butembo, Democratic Republic of Congo.

Thank you so much for the prayers and support.  I am in Mumias, Kenya with Pastor Lucas and family, we are working on the orphanage land and making preparations to build.  The land is very nice, four acres of gently sloping farm land, just a mile or so from the church and a couple miles from Mumias.  The land has a small creek at the bottom of it, and an everlasting spring as well, all the land is suitable for growing corn or vegetables.  We planted ten fruit trees on Friday, mango, papaya, lemon, orange, and avocado.  We are going to plant banana, and eucalyptus for shade later this week, plus some more avocado and mango.
I am praying for the Lord to put the provision in hand so we can proceed to build.  I will be meeting with a contractor this week about building plans, as well as praying around the land.  Please join me in praying that God release the money so we can go ahead and provide a good Christian home for fifty children.   Would like to bring a crew back next summer to help with construction and work with the children.  Pray about coming to Kenya with me for a couple of weeks, it will be a trip like no other!

Orphanage needs this fall:  They would like to plant a corn crop in September,  they need $600 for seed and fertilizer.  Another blessing may be coming from the Lord: two acres that joins the Living Water Land on the top end is up for sale, at the same price of $3,000 per acre.  If we could get that we would have 6 acres and enough to be food self sufficient, it is all good land for all types of vegetable and grain production. If you can help with any of these needs, let me know at
Thank you again for your prayers.  In Christ, Jim            Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654  501(c)3     Paypal at

Kenya Orphanage Update

Dear beloved:  Pictures  Top left Butembo, Congo crusade.  top right  Butembo  Pygmie worship choir, yes!  above planting fruit trees at the Living Water orphanage site.   The little guy in the middle is Dellie, named after Dell computers.  I think he will grow up to be an IT specialist.
Thank you so much for the prayers and support.  May the Lord bless you all.  Planted 14 banana trees at the orphanage site yesterday, they take big holes. Planted them near the spring and expect them to get big and produce lots of good bananas.  Will be planting a few more next week and then a few avocado to wrap up the planting.

Will be moving on next week to Kalifi near Mombasa on the coast to preach with a pastor I met several years ago. Last weekend I preached in a local church, the Lord again gave me a word of knowledge about a wayward child that would be coming home.  Later in the week the pastor called and said an adult child that had been gone for years came home to the lady we prayed for at the church meeting.  It was a miracle, a testimony for the whole congregation!  Will be preaching at another local church  this weekend,  the church is one of the pastors who is on the LIving Water Orpahage Board here in Kenya.

 I am planning a big finale to the preaching ministry here.  On October 2  we will be holding an all night kesha, prayer and praise fest at Kenyatta University in Nairobi.  We have a big hall secured on campus and a team in place to promote and do the ground work setup.  This is a big open door the Lord has opened to reach university students in Kenya, as there will be students from several universities attending.  I am praying for a huge crowd and showers of blessings,  If you can help with the funding of the kesha, it would be greatly appreciated.  I am supplying security, musicians, posters, and a 2am snack!

We will pray till six in the morning for Kenya, for the students, for America, and for God to move in protecting this country from the hands of terrorists and those who would destroy.  Please join me in prayer and support.  God bless you as you pray, in Christ, Jim

Moving on to Mombasa

Dear beloved:  Above picture.  Children at the preschool of Pastor Lucas Obanda.  This is the church with whom we are building the orphanage.  Far left, Bishop Titus Lukale, board member of LIving Water Orphanage, Christa Bell, church preschool director, Robby Jorgeson, Pastor Lucas Obanda, Good Hope Fellowship, Mumias, Kenya.

Thank you so much for your prayers and support.  God is doing great and mighty things here.  Have wrapped up the planting on the orphanage land this week, will be moving on to Mombasa on the coast of Kenya.  I will be preaching in Kalifi at the church of Bishop Ernest Martin, speaking to bible college students during the week and meeting with government officials.

Have a need for solar expertise on the orphanage land, if anyone knows of someone with that type of expertise, have them get in touch with me.  We will be designing a solar pumping system to pump the water from the spring up the hill to the house and gardens.  We would also like to operate the house on solar as electricity here is Kenya is unreliable, and we are a distance from the existing lines. We checked the flow rate of the spring this week, it is flowing at the rate of about 10,000 gallons per day, so God has blessed us with much pure water.

The ministry finale is taking shape in Nairobi on October 2, where I will conduct an all night kesha, a prayer and worship extravaganza.  The Lord has blessed us with a big venue at Kenyatta University, one of the largest universities in Nairobi.  We will pray for the blessings of the Lord on Kenya, on the students, and also protection from the terrorists.  I will be preaching and also leading some worship.  Please pray about your part in helping to fund this kesha, it will be a big event with students from several universities attending.  I am needing about $1,000 for all the budgeted expenses.
Thank you again for your prayers.  May God richly bless you, in Christ, Jim  Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654 501(c)3

Miracles in Mombasa

Dear beloved:  Thank you so much for your prayers and support.  I am near Mombasa on the coast of Kenya, I have been preaching in house fellowships the last two days after arriving here by bus from Mumias.  The word of God goes forth with power, power to save, power to heal, and power to deliver.  I have prayed for many in the last two days who have been afflicted with all kinds of infirmities.  Many here have illness and pains, while doctors and medical care are in short supply.  This afternoon three ladies who were prayed for yesterday, came forward at the meeting and told of miraculous healings that the Lord Jesus had given them.  And today many more came forward for prayers, including a man with a brain tumor that had caused his eyesight to fail, as well as a young boy about ten years of age who was very weak, and I believe likely has HIV. But I am expecting God to do even more for them and many others in the days ahead, as I will be preaching tomorrow in a church in the area, as well as conducting meetings next week

The Lord is keeping me in good fashion as He alone knows the needs of His servants.  I am in a beautiful private villa, on a large estate just a short walk from the Indian Ocean.  It is very beautiful here, with all the canopy of tropical trees, and the fresh ocean breezes blowing in to take away the afternoon heat.  The estate is also home to chimpanzees and birds of all descriptions.  When taking a walk this morning, I was reminded of the scripture from Psalm 37:29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell in it forever. When taking territory from the enemy, God gives us the spoils of victory!

This area of Kenya is predominately muslim, but the Lord has brought me here to decree and declare over this area of the country, that He has given the nations to Jesus as His inheritance.  Many in the muslim faith are seeing Jesus in dreams and visions, pray with me that many will come to know Him as a result of this trip.  Just today I met a young muslim man named Juma while walking on the beach: he allowed me to pray with him that Jesus, the Son of the One True God, would reveal Himself to Juma in a personal way.  Pray that all the muslims in the coastal region of Kenya will come to know Jesus as Lord!
May God bless you today as you pray.  In Christ, Jim   Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654  501(c)3
