Burundi Crusade!  clik link to see more photos
Dear beloved:  Above photos, Ngozi, Burundi Crusade.  Above, 1) speaking to a group of 300 youth, 2) dancing to the Lord, 3) huge crowd at the crusade, 4) one of a dozen worship teams from various churches
Psalm 22:3 Yet You are holy, O You who are enthroned upon the praises of Israel.  Psalm 99:3 Let them praise Your great and awesome Name; Holy is He.  Psalm 99:9 Exalt the Lord our God and worship at His holy hill, for holy is the Lord our God.   Yes beloved, the Lord inhabits the praises of His people!  Give the Lord the praise that He is due today and you will break the back of the enemy.
Still basking in the glow of the Burundi Crusade, but I am now in Gisenyi, Rwanda, waiting for approval of the Congolese government to cross the border into Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo.    Pray for a breakthrough today to remove all roadblocks!  I have people in place in Butembo to preach in the eventuality that I don't get there tonight in time.  The Lord has spoken to me, "It is the message that is important, not the preacher."  Thank you so much for your prayers and support.
God bless you as you pray.  In Christ, Jim  Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654  501(c)3  Paypal   or   email:

Kenya Mission Team

Dear beloved:  Here are some scenes from Kenya;  left, ready to break ground at the Living Water Orphanage near Mumias; right, prison ministry team, Augustine, Staci, Jim, Melvin, Chad, Steve, Sammy, ready to go in Bungoma prison.
James 2:14 What does it profit my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? v15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, v16 and one of you says to them, "depart in peace, be warmed and filled," but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? v17 Thus also faith if it does not have works, is dead.
Beloved, God's desire for us is that we put our faith into action, so that others may see what a wonderful God we serve.  The orphanage project is underway, soon we will be pouring the footings and building the structure.  The Bungoma prison team went into the prison and preached for two hours, and twenty four precious souls came forward to give their life to Jesus Christ.  Bwana a safiwe!  Praise the Lord.  Start praying about coming with us next year, Gather the Outcasts Ministry will be hosting a trip to Africa every year.  Declare now that you are going to do something extraordinary for the kingdom of God, that you are going to make a difference in the lives of Africans.
God bless you and thank you.  In Christ, Jim  Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654  501 (c)3  Paypal @ or   email:

Karibu Burundi!

Dear beloved:  Pics above, the Masai Mara Wildlife Refuge in Kenya.
Isaiah 6:3 And one Seraphim said to another: Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; The whole earth is filled with His glory!  Genesis 1:25 And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind.  And God saw that it was good.  v31 Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
Got back to Nairobi last night after two remarkable days viewing God's creation at the Masai Mara Refuge in Kenya.  Saw lions, elephants, giraffes, a cheetah, hippos, African buffalo, and millions of wildebeast and zebra.  What a collection of some of the most amazing animals all in one place, roaming about in their natural habitat.  Then I bid goodbye to the team as I put them on the plane bound for America; it was a bittersweet sendoff as I was so thankful for all they had accomplished, but very sorry to see them go.  I am now in Bujumbura, Burundi, preparing for the big crusade starting tomorrow.  We are looking for God to exceed all expections for salvations, signs, and wonders! Please keep the crusade lifted up in prayer, we will be lifting up the name of Jesus for three days, that His name will draw all men unto Him, and bring His peace to this country.  Thank you, and pray about your part in sowing into the harvest with this ministry if you have never given.
God bless you as you pray.  in Christ, Jim   Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654  501c3  Paypal @ or    email:

Living Water

Dear beloved:  Above pictures, the spring running a beautiful stream at the Living Water Orpahange near Mumias, Kenya.
John 4:10  Jesus answered and said to her, " If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, give Me a drink, you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water." v13 "Whoever drinks of the water from this well will thirst again, v14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst.  The water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into eternal life."
God has blessed us so much on this piece of land that will be the home for the orphanage.  The land is fertile and will grow bountiful crops of corn and vegetables, as well as there are now over fifty fruit trees on the land; banana, mango, avocado, papaya, orange, and lemon.  We have been blessed with a never ending supply of good water, so we can water the gardens and have all we need for the house.  We are also planning to dig fish ponds below the spring to raise talapia for another source of protein for the children.
Would you pray about your part in seeing this project finished and the children playing on the site?  The children will be taught about the living water of Jesus Christ.  We will raise them up and send them out in the world with the knowledge of their Savior. Email me if you have any questions.  What you sow into the kingdom for this project will reap a harvest for all eternity.
God bless you as you pray.  in Christ, Jim   Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654  501(c)3   Paypal or    email:

Dear beloved:  Great news! Yesterday was the groundbreaking for the Living Water Orphanage near Mumias, Kenya.  Pictures above, the crew getting ready to dig the ditches for the footings for the orphanage building.  This is a historic day for the kingdom of God and for Gather the Outcasts Ministry.  Many years of prayer have been answered and the orphanage is no longer a dream, but the actual construction phase has begun.  Please keep us lifted up in prayer as the provision to complete the project to the end is still yet to come, but we have enough to get started.  The team from America has been awesome, they are enjoying their time in Kenya and have been great workers.  Work is also progressing on the spring development, which will be the sole water source for the home. Pray about your part in seeing it all finished with the children moving in.
2 Chronicles 6:12 O Lord, God of Isreal, there is no God like you in heaven or earth- You who keep your covenant of love with your servants who continue whole heartedley in Your way. You have kept Your promise to Your servant David my father; with Your mouth You have promised and with Your hand; You have fulfilled it-as it is today." The name of the builder/architect here in Mumias is Solomon. Yes!
When I prayed over the groundbreaking ceremony yesterday, just as I began to pray, the first raindrop hit my arm. It was confirmation from the Lord that He is with us and blessing us in all that we do.  It had not rained here in Mumias for six weeks before the Lord's servants came here this week, and now we have had showers for two days.  I will have a video of the groundbreaking ceremony and prayer in the days to come.
May God bless you as you pray.  in Christ, Jim  Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654  501(c)3  Paypal@  or  email:

Great Are You Lord!

Dear beloved: Psalm 147:1 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 stars and calls them by name. v5 Great is our Lord, and mighty in power.
When I walked into the IHOP prayer room early this morning, this chorus was going up before the Lord, "And all the earth will sing Your praise, Our hearts will cry, our bones will sing, Great are you Lord!  Its Your breath, in our lungs, so we pour out our praise, pour out our praise, Its Your breath in our lungs, so we pour out our praise, pour out our praise, to You, Oh Lord.  Great are you Lord!
Thank you so much for your prayers and support.  If you sow into Gather the Outcasts you are sowing into your own destiny.  Help us gather the outcasts of Africa.  Luke 6:38  "Give, and it shall be given, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, spilling over it will be put into your bosom; For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured unto you."
