Praise the Lord for Victory!

Dear beloved:  Pictures above, left, revival at Butembo, DRoCongo, right, poster for Burundi Crusade 2016
2 Chronicles 20:20 So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, " Hear me, O Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper." v21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord and those who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: "Praise the Lord, For His mercy endures forever." v22 Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mt. Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated.
Beloved, the Lord will give you victory over your enemies if you sing to Him and praise the beauty of His holiness.  Lift up your voice today in praise and worship to the King.  We will be in Burundi in less than a month to lift up a cascade of praise to the Lord, that the enemies of Burundi will be scattered.  Join me in praying for a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit for salvation and for healings.  Pray about partnering with Gather the Outcasts to bring in the harvest.  Look up, the fields are ripe!
God bless you as you pray.  in Christ, Jim  Gather the Outcasts, Inc., Box 92, Norton, Ks, 67654   501(c)3  PayPal at  or

The Decree of the Lord

Dear beloved:  Scenes above from the 2015 Burundi Crusade, outside Bujumbura the capital city
Psalm 2:7 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. V9 You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter's vessel.
Beloved, the Lord's possessions and inheritance includes the nations of the earth.  He uses men and women like you and me to go in and decree that fact to the powers and rulers who have the nations in their grip.  Jesus isn't coming back to do the work; He wants to send us under the power of the Holy Spirit.  Would you be a part of this nation building tour for the kingdom of God?  I will be in Burundi in just a bit over a month from now to decree a thing and see it come to pass. We are looking for even bigger crowds this year and the excitement is building.  If you can't go, be a sender. Together we can take the nations for the Lord!
God bless you as you pray.  In Christ, Jim   Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654  501(c)3  Paypal @ or

Pure and Undefiled Religion

Dear beloved:  Pics above, left, Church meeting near Tororo, Uganda; right; orphanage site in Kenya
James 1:27 "Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world."  Beloved, Jesus has a very special love in His heart for children.  He told the disciples Matt. 19:14,  to "Let the little children come unto Me, and do not forbid them; for the kingdom of heaven is made for such as these." v15 Then He laid His hands on them (praying for them) and departed from there.
Beloved, we have some needs and opportunities to bless the children that are in Mumias, Kenya, and are currently being taken care of by chuch members.  Here are the needs for forty children: 1. school uniforms $400  2. blankets $480 3. school books $240 4. shoes $360  5. sleeping mats $600 6.writing pens and colors $50  7. Dairy Cow $500. We have plenty of grass at the Living Water Ophanage site for a cow.   If you are able to help with any of these needs please designate on your check your desire. We will be leaving July 6th, so would like to be able to purchase these items when we get to Kenya. Thank you so much for your prayers and support.
May God bless you as you pray.  In Christ, Jim  Gather the Outcasts,  Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654  501(c)3   Paypal @ or

The Great Supper

Dear beloved:  Pictures above, Malaba, Kenya crusade
Luke 14:16 Then Jesus said to him, "A certain man gave a great supper and invited many, v17 and sent his servant at supper time to say to those who were invited, "Come, for all things are now ready."  v18 But they all with one accord began to make excuses. The first said to him, "I have bought a piece of land, and I must go and see it. I ask you to have me excused:" v19 And another said, "I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to test them. I ask you to have me excused." v20 Still another said, "I have married a wife and I cannot come." v21 So that servant came and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house, being angry, said to his servant, "Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor, the maimed, and the lame and blind." v23 Then the master said to the servant, "Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled."
Beloved, we are going to Africa to compel the lost to come in.  There is still room at the supper for many more.  Would you partner with Gather the Outcasts Ministry to send us into the highways and hedges? Your financial support with prayer makes it all happen. We are having a ministry fundraising banquet Thursday, June 16th, at 6.30 pm, at the Bullseye Event Center in downtown Norton. Tickets are free but you must reserve your seat.  Call Bullseye at 785-874-4800 to reserve your seat.

Healing for the Congo

Dear Beloved:  Pics above, left revival at Butembo, Congo; right, countryside near Butembo
Beloved, this week I have received very disturbing images from a Pastor in Congo, near Butembo, where I will be preaching this summer.  I have not posted the pictures because they show the bodies of dead Christians who have be hacked up and killed by machete wielding muslims who have been on a killing rampage.  This area of Congo is in the Northeast part of the country where there has been much rebel led strife in the past, but this is a new page in the suffering of these precious people.  God is taking me to that area to bring the message of peace and hope to the blood soaked land, the message that only the gospel of Jesus can bring.
Malachi 4:1 "For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up," says the Lord of hosts, "That will leave neither root nor branch." v2 But to you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; And you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves. v3 You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet On the day that I do this," says the Lord of hosts.
Your partnership with Gather the Outcasts is vital to take the message of salvation and healing to places such as Butembo.  Please pray about your part is sending me to the Congo, one of the three countries in Africa I will be preaching crusades this summer.  May God bless you as you pray.  In Christ, Jim  Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654  501(c)3 PayPal @
