Christmas Greetings!

Dear beloved:  Pics above, left Burundi crusade; right, Living Water Orphanage site in Kenya
Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given, And the government will be upon His shoulder, And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. v7 Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
Beloved, there is one government that is always increasing in the midst of turmoil and chaos of this world.  That is the government established by Jesus Christ, our Savior and Prince of Peace. He is our eternal refuge and our banner and standard.  We can always look to Him!  I praise God for each of you that have supported Gather the Outcasts Ministry with your prayers and support. May you have a Merry Christmas with family and friends!

The Name of Jesus

Dear beloved:  Pictures above:  left, children at Sholom Hotel in Mumias, Kenya; Malaba, Kenya Crusade; Gather the Outcasts:"Reaching the Lost in Africa"
Matthew 1:20 But while Joseph thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying , "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. v21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins." v22 So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophet, saying: v23 "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which is translated, "God with us."
Before I left for Kenya in 2010, a brother in the prison came to me with a prophetic word from a dream the Lord had given to him.  He said, "Jim, there will be a young woman coming to you in Kenya.  She will come to have you pray for her deliverance and salvation, and she will have a small child with her.  I am to pray for that child all the rest of my life."  The woman came before me at the crusade in Uhuru Park in Nairobi. After I prayed for her I asked, "What is the name of your child?"  She replied, " His name is Immanuel."     Read about this and other stories from crusades and revivals in Africa in the book, "Gather the Outcasts: Reaching the Lost in Africa" available from amazon.,

Born Again

Dear beloved:  Pictures above, left, Elizabeth a new convert at her baptism: Ngozi, Burundi Crusade; Gather the Outcasts: Reaching the Lost in Africa. available at
Luke 15:4  "What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? v5 And when he finds it, he lays it on his shoulder rejoicing. v6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, "Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!" v7 I say to you that likewise there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance."
Last night at the prison a young man came forward to confess Jesus as his Lord and Savior.  He said, " I don't know much about the Bible or Jesus, I just want what all the rest of you guys have!" What a testimony.  Pray for Derrick as he begins his new life with Jesus, as a new creation born again.  Read inspiring stories of gospel crusades to reach the lost in  Africa. It can be ordered at this link:  Thank you for your support.

An Offering of Praise

Dear beloved:  Pics above: left, foundation of main house at Living Water Orphanage; right, maize crop at Living Water
Psalm 92:1 It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing praises to Your name, O most high; v2 To declare your lovingkindness in the morning, And Your faithfulness every night, v3 On an instrument of ten strings, on the lute, on the harp, with harmonious sound, v4 For you, Lord, have made me glad through Your work; I will triumph in the works of Your hands.
Beloved, the work of the Lord has made me glad.  When I see all that has been accomplished this year in Africa in the crusades and revivals, and all the progress made at the Living Water site in Kenya, I am overjoyed. The work of the Lord through the hands of His people is truly a joy to watch.  Please consider making an offering of praise to the Lord for all that He has done in your life this year. The best is yet to come!  Thank you so much for your prayers and support.

Dear beloved:  Pics above, work proceeding on the Living Water Orphanage in Kenya
Phillipians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; v7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Psalm 136:1 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
I am thankful for the progress being made on the Living Water Orphanage home in Kenya.  James says, "pure and undefiled religion is to care for the widows and orphans in their distress." I am thankful for the mercy of the Lord, that He has given me the opportunity to work for Him and help build His kingdom here on the earth. I am also thankful for you friends and supporters of Gather the Outcasts Ministry, without you this would not be possible.  May God bless you and your family as you give thanks to the Lord for the great things He has done in your life as well.

A Heart of Thanksgiving

Beloved: Pictures, work progressing this week on Living Water Orphanage;  Psalm 100:1 Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands! v2 Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. v3 Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.  v4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations.
Beloved, we have so much to be thankful for here in America, the abundance of the Lord's blessings and riches have been poured out upon this land.  There also comes responsibility with those blessings, and that is to share with others who are less fortunate. I am thankful the Lord has opened doors for me to be able to do that with the children in Kenya.  Just this week we started on the foundation of the main house at the Living Water Orphanage near Mumias.  What a joy to be doing the Lord's work to care for the widows and the orphans.  Would you join me in the work? On behalf of the children of Kenya, I thank you so much for your prayers and support.

A Living Memorial

Dear beloved:   Pics above: top, crew ready to dig footings at Living Water Orphanage site in Kenya;; right, a day's work;
Mark 14:3 And being in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, as He sat at the table, a woman came having an alabaster flask of very costly oil of spikenard. Then she broke the flask and poured it on His head. v4But there were some who were indignant among themselves, and said, "Why was this fragrant oil wasted?" v5 "For it might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii and given to the poor." And they criticized her sharply. v6 But Jesus said, " Leave her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a good work for Me. v9 Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her."
Beloved, we will all have our flowers at our funerals and stones to mark our graves.  But this woman will be talked about for all time wherever the gospel is preached. for she gave a sacrificial offering of nearly a year's wages and poured it on the head of Jesus. We are asking the Lord for $50,000 to build the main house at the Living Water Orphanage near Mumias, Kenya. We have enough money to start construction this week by pouring the foundation cement.  Pray about your part in creating a lasting memorial for yourself and the kingdom of God, make a sacrificial gift to help get this home for 30 orphaned children built.  Thank you so much for your prayers and support.

The Dream

Dear beloved:  Pics above, left, on their knees, Governor of North Kivu, and Mayor of Butembo, Butembo Crusade, Democratic Republic of Congo; Gather the Outcasts Butembo, DROC Crusade 2016
Romans 13:4 For he (the governing authority) is God's minister to you for good, but if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God's minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.
Why is God concerned about elections and the leaders of nations?  Because there is no governing authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. (Romans 13:1)  The dream the Lord gave me two months ago regarding the election in the USA was given after a time of prayer while I was in Kenya. The dream:  A person was standing next to a wall upon which was hanging a line of stately picture portraits.   The person was holding a large picture in a similar type frame, ready to hang it on the wall.  The picture in the frame was that of Donald Trump. Then the Lord spoke to me, " Don't run from Trump, run to him."  The Lord was calling me to pray for the man whom He was raising up.  We are called to pray for him, as we are instructed to pray for all our governing authorities.  He is not our Savior, nor will he solve all of America's problems.  But he is the man God has raised up for this hour in America's destiny.
If you would be interested in having me speak to your church or Bible study group, get in touch with me.  I would love to come share about the Gather the Outcasts evangelism ministry in Africa, as well as the Living Water Orphanage project near Mumias, Kenya.  Thank you so much for your prayers and support.

The Vote

Dear beloved:  Pictures left, children with new books at New Hope School; right, worship at Holy Spirit Church in Kampala, Uganda
Daniel 2:20 Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His. v21 And He changes the times and seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding, v22 He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him.
Beloved, the hand of God is moving in this election.  You are seeing the darkness being exposed in both candidates,God is shining His light into the dark corners. I encourage all of you to go out and vote. Your vote is a prophetic act, by it you are speaking into your future. God uses men and women to raise up kings. 1 Samuel 16:13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed David in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward. I have ministered in four countries in Africa where power hungry men have managed to render the vote meaningless for the people in their country.  The ultimate freedom is not to be able to purchase the latest version of iphone, the ultimate freedom is to be able to vote and elect those we choose to lead us.
We are ready to move forward in the construction phase of the Living Water Orphanage in Kenya.  I am asking the Lord for $4,500 to be able to pour the foundations and the slab of the main house at the same time. We are also looking for more sponsors of the children of New Hope school at $20 per month.  Let me hear from you if you are interested. Thank you for your prayers and support.
God bless you as you pray.  in Christ, Jim  Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654 501c3  Paypal@ or jim rowh

Election Reflections

Dear beloved:  pics above,  children being fed at Oyugis, Kenya crusade; children at New Hope Fellowship school showing off new uniforms
Proverbs 20:27 The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord, searching all the inner depths of the heart.  Joel 2:12 "Now therefore." says the Lord, "Turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning" v13 So rend your heart and not your garments; Return to the Lord your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness; and He relents from doing harm. v14 Who knows if He will turn and relent, and leave a blessing behind Him, a grain offering and a drink offering for the Lord your God?
 Many have expressed dismay at the quality and character of the two major party candidates in this year's presidential election. Sad to say, but these candidates are a reflection of who we are as a nation.  And even more importantly, since both candidates are professing Christians, who we are as the body of Christ in America.  God is holding a mirror up to ourselves so we can see our reflection.  The Apostle Peter tells us (1 Peter 4:17) For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?  We are in a precarious situation as a nation.  Our sins and iniquities cannot be hidden, at some point the judgment of God will be poured out upon us in a very painful way.  We need to pray, maybe the Lord will relent.
I will be speaking in churches and in the prisons this winter regarding the Living Water Orphanage Project, and the evangelism outreach of Gather the Outcasts Ministry in Africa.  If you would like to have me come speak in your church, Bible study, or conduct a church revival, please email and let me know.  Also if you would be interested in going to Kenya next July for a two week mission trip, contact me and I will get you all the details.  Thank you so much for your prayers and support.

More on Elections

Dear beloved:  Pics above: left, new watchman's house at Living Water; right, handing out new tablets to preschool children
Psalm 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and His Anointed, saying, v3 Let us break their bonds in pieces, and cast away their cords from us. v4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall hold them in derision. v5 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in deep displeasure; v6 Yet I have set My king on My holy hill of Zion, v7 I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to me (Jesus), "You are My Son, today I have begotten You. v8 Ask of Me , and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession."
Beloved, there is one vote in this year's election that will count more than the votes of all the registered voters in America.  That is the vote cast by God.  I believe the Lord has shown me who He is raising up to lead this country.  God works in cooperation with and through the actions of man, so if you want to be on the winning side, seek the Lord and He will reveal to you who He is raising up. You can be assured Jesus has already asked the Father for the nations, including America.  America holds a very special place in the eyes of Jesus; it is the greatest bastion of freedom in the world, the beacon of light to other nations.  It is also the greatest missionary sending nation, responsible for many of the hospitals, orphanages,  medical clinics, and churches planted all over the world.  God is not finished with America, Bwana a Safiwe!
We have been given a $4,500 donation towards the construction of the Living Water Orphanage main house.  I would like to challenge you supporters to match this amount so we can have enough to pour all the foundations and the main concrete slab of the house at the same time.  Work will proceed as soon as the money comes in.  Pray about your part in moving this project forward!

USA Election

Dear beloved:  Pics above, maize planting crew at Living Water Orphanage site in Kenya; Burundi Crusade
1 Timothy 2:1 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, v2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. v3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.
Beloved, as I have arrived safely back in the USA, I am here in time to feel the full force of the winds of the presidential election.  When in Kenya the Lord gave me a prophetic dream of the coming election.  I will not share it here, suffice it to say he wants me and all of us to be in prayer for this very special time for the destiny of this country.  What is the Lord looking at when He looks at America regarding this election?  There are many issues, but I believe what He is most looking at is this: Who will defend the pillars of His kingdom here on this earth?  This is His desire not only for America, but for all the nations of the earth.  Matthew 6:10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
There are three main pillars that define His kingdom, and from these all other institutions, cultures, and human activities flow.  The pillars: 1. Genesis 1:26 Let us create man in Our image, according to Our likeness  We are created in the image of God, every child born and unborn is created in His image.  The sanctity of human life is the preeminent issue for every nation, tribe, and tongue.  2. Genesis 1:28 Then God blessed them (male and female), and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it."   The sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman.  3. Genesis 12:2  I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing, v3 I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse those who curse you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.  The sanctity of His chosen people Israel, and our blessings toward them. Gather the Outcasts is fulfilling the mandate of preaching the gospel to all the nations of the earth.  We are also helping to care for the widows and orphans, the least fortunate of the the children in Kenya.  Would you join us as we pursue God's will both in America and in Africa?   Thank you for your prayers and support.

Parable of the Talents

Dear beloved:  pics above, left, praying for pastors at Westlands Church in Nairobi; right, praying for students at kesha
Matthew 25:14 For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. v27 So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. v28 Therefore, take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents. v28 For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance, but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.  v30 And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
In the strictest sense, this parable is speaking of money {talents}, but in a broader context it is speaking of your faith.  We have all been given a mustard seed of faith, the question for each of us is this: What are we doing with the faith God has given us?  Are you using your faith to move the kingdom of God forward?  If not, God will take it from you and give it to those who are on the move. What you do with your money is an expression of your faith.  I had the opportunity over the weekend to see the kingdom move forward in two very powerful services in Nairobi.  First, the all night kesha Friday night, where over 100 university students came together to cry out for Kenya. Then at a great church in Westlands on Sunday morning, where over 200 belivers came together to worship and hear the word of the Lord. God is on the move and opening doors for Gather the Outcasts in Africa.  Thank you for your prayers and support.

Kesha Power!

Dear beloved:  Pics above, worship at the midnight hour,  university students at the kesha
Ezekiel 22:30 So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found no one.   2 Chronicles 7:14  If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.  v15 Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place.
Let it not be said of us that we failed to stand in the gap for Nairobi and the land of Kenya.  We worshipped and cried out to the Lord until 5 am, for God to breakthrough and tear down strongholds of corruption, sexual immorality, and pagan worship. These are the three main principalities that rule over Kenya, causing much pain, poverty, and destruction.  It was a night of powerful praise and worship, preaching,  and passionate prayers.  About 100 university students and pastors gathered for the all night kesha, now we rest and thank the Lord for hearing our prayers. Thank you for your prayers and support that allowed Gather the Outcasts Ministry to hold this meeting.

Offering to the Lord

Dear beloved:  Some scenes from the Living Water site;  l to r, the Living Water, new house for the watchman and tools, maize crop growing.
2 Samuel 24:21 Then Araunah said, "Why has the lord my king come to his servant?" And King David said, "To buy the threshing floor from you, to build an altar to the Lord, that the plague may be withdrawn from the people." v22 Then Araunah said to David, " Let the lord the king take and offer up whatever seems good to him.  Look, here are oxen for burnt sacrifice, and threshing implements and the yokes of the oxen for wood. v23  "All these, o king, Araunah has given to the king. v24 Then the king said to Araunah, "No, but I will surely buy it from you for a price; nor will I offer burnt offerings to the Lord my God with that which costs me nothing."  So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
Beloved, What are you asking from the Lord God this day?  Maybe it is needs for yourself, your family, or your ministry?  God knows the desires of your heart, your needs even before you speak them. King David had needs as well, BIG needs. His sin had brought a plague down upon the children of Israel.  He could have easily taken the gift of the threshing floor.  But he chose instead to make an offering to the Lord, to purchase the threshing floor as an expression of his sacrifice to the Lord. Consider today making a gift to Gather the Outcasts Ministry.  We have needs for the kingdom of God in Africa, to stop the plague of corruption, sexual immorality, the rise of islam and other pagan religions.   I would appreciate more monthly partners, more offerings for the Living Water Orphanage project, so we can give the children a good home, and teach them about the love that Jesus has for them.  Pray about your part in moving the Kingdom of God forward in Africa today.

The Name of Jesus!

Dear beloved:  Pictures above, left, tree planting crew at Living Water; right, Steven helping out with the spring development at Living Water; bottom, children at the New Hope children's school
John 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out. v32 and I, if I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all people unto Myself v35 Then Jesus said to them, " A little while longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you; he who walks in darkness does not know where he is going. v 36 While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of the light.  Matthew 5:14 "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.  v16 So let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
Beloved, everywhere we look, darkness is overcoming the earth.  Praise God there is light to overcome the darkness!  Jesus is the light of the world, so if you know Jesus as Lord, let your light shine before men.  Plan now to come to Africa next summer 2017 for a short term mission to let your light shine.  We will be bringing a team back to Kenya to work on the Living Water Orphanage and preach the good news of the gospel. Start praying about it and make plans now to come.  When enough lights come together, the light gets very bright, and there is no place for the darkness.  Put your faith into action that men, women, and children may see your good works, and your God will be glorified.

Bearing Good Fruit

Dear beloved:  Pics above left, Kesha in Nairobi in 2013 the night before the Westgate Mall attack; right, Kesha coming in Nairobi on October 14; below left, Burundi Crusade; my Africa 2016 team " the cream of the crop", l to r, Sammy, Mandela, Chad, Steve, Faith, Jim, Staci
Matthew 7:16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? v17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. v18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. v19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. v20 Therefore, by their fruits you will know them.
Beloved, Gather the Outcasts has been on the front battle lines here in Africa for this now our seventh year.  The pictures above give just a small glimpse into all we are involved in.  In 2013, God had me stationed as a watchman on the wall with many university students at a kesha just down the road from the Westgate Mall, crying out for the peace and protection of Kenya.  Little did we know the most dreadful terrorist attack in the country's history would commence the next day. With another kesha coming up in two weeks, I am looking forward again to join with the students for a powerful night of prayer and worship. If you support Gather the Outcasts Ministry in Africa, you are also bearing good fruit.  The keshas, the many lives saved and healed at the crusade events, and the Living Water Orphanage Project in Kenya are all  good fruits to give back to the Lord. We are searching out God's will here in this place.  Your prayers and donations help the vision become reality.
Thank you so much, God bless you as you pray.  in Christ, Jim  Gather the Outcasts, Inc., Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654 501c3  Paypal@  or   email:

Update From Mumias

Dear beloved:  Pics above, left, children needing sponsors, Jim and Chad at the Living Water spring; bottom left, Chad with the school children, digging the footings at the Living Water site
Hebrews 11:1  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence (conviction) of things not seen, v2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. v3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.   Romans 4:17 as it is written, "I have made you, Abraham, a father of many nations", in the presence of Him whom he believed-God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being those things which do not exist as though they did.
Faith is the substance that activates our relationship with God.   Without exercising our faith, our relationship is very shallow and easily doubted. When we exercise our faith, our relationship with God is strengthened, and we see things in the future just as God already knows them. Three years ago a prophetic word was spoken over me, "Jim, now it is just your vision and God together on this Living Water Orphanage project, but in the years ahead, many will see the vision and they will come."  Beloved, would you catch the vision with me and step out in faith to get this home finished this year?  We have the building permits in place and the footings dug.  We are trusting the Lord for $50,000 to get the home finished and ready to move into.  We are also still in need of sponsors for 13 of the 29 children, would you consider being a sponsor at $20 per month?  This is the seventh year of Gather the Outcasts Ministry coming to Africa to bring the good news of the gospel, let this also be the year of completion.

The coastal region of Kilifi, Kenya is a stonghold of muslims, it is just down the coast from Somalia.  The darkness here can sometimes be overwhelming, it tends to suffocate.  But God is breaking through in KIlifi with the light of the gospel.  Many muslim school children are stopping by the crusade to listen to the word and the good worship music.  Where there is darkness the light shines brighter! We had a breakthrough tonight with some salvation decisions, most likely muslims, and also many came forward to receive prayers for healing and deliverance.  Bwana a safiwe!
Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine. For your light has come!  And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.v2 For behold, the darkness has covered the earth. And deep darkness the people.  But the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.    John 1:4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. v5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
We have one more day of the crusade in Kilifi, keep the prayers coming for the light to get even brighter.     God bless you,  in Christ, Jim   Gather the Outcasts Ministry, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654   501c3   Paypal @  or    email :    Forward to friends by link below.  Correction from post of 9/20/2016  The crowd pictured was from the Burundi Crusade 2016, not Mumias, Kenya.

On to Kilifi!

Dear beloved:  More scenes from the recent Kampala Earth Shaking Revival,   Bottom right, The lady I prayed for at her house was very sick, possibly AIDS. People brought her to the church two days later and laid her down on a mat at the back of the church. She stayed for the whole three hours of service.  God is healing her, she left with a smile!
Matthew 9:35 Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. v36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion, for they were weary and scattered, like sheep without a shepherd. v37 Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. v38 Therefore, pray for the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into the harvest."
I will be leaving for Kilifi, Kenya, on the coast near Mombasa, next Monday for a three day outdoor crusade and pastor conference, September 22-24.  This event is being staged in the heart of the enemy territory in Kenya, so I ask for increased prayer covering. This will be the last big event for me in this preaching tour of five countries in Africa.  I am short about $1,500 to fulfill my budget obligations for this event.  They are anticipating a crowd of ten to twenty thousand.  Would you help send forth laborers into the harvest, would you pray about your part in seeing this crusade be a great success?  The Lord is preparing a table for us in the presence of our enemies.
May God bless you as you pray.  In Christ, Jim,  Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654  501c3   Paypal at or   email:
