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
