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:
