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.
God bless you as you pray.  In Christ, Jim   Gather the Outcasts Inc., Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654  501c3  Paypal @ or  email:  facebook: Evangelist Jim Rowh

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.
God bless you as you pray.  In Christ, Jim  Gather the Outcasts, Box 92, Norton, Ks. 67654 501c3  Paypal @ or  email: jim rowh

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.
