Tanzania Crusade

Dear beloved:  Pics above, beautiful lion at Masai Mara; right, Jesus team at Mumias, from left front row, Jane, Lucas, Sammy, Precious, Frank; back row, Janet, Augustine, Steve, Jim, Rhonda
Isaiah 41:10  Fear not, for I am with you, Be not dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. v11 Behold, all those who were incensed against you shall be ashamed and disgraced; They shall be as nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish  v12 You shall seek them and not find them- Those who contended with you and war against you shall be as nothing, as a nonexistent thing. v13 for I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, " Fear not, I will help you."
Beloved, at a time when Kenya is grinding to a halt because of the elections, Gather the Outcasts Ministry is moving forward.  The American team that was here partnered with our Kenya partners to accomplish mighty exploits for the Lord.  Construction at the Living Water site, maize harvesting, preaching in the Bungoma prison, minstering to the Mumias street boys, sharing with the New Hope preschool.  We finished up the mission with a trip to the Masai Mara Wildlife Refuge, to see some of the Lord's majestic creations.  Start praying about coming to Kenya to be a part of what God is doing here!  Next up: Five day crusade in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.  This is going to be a biggie, many famous gospel singers lining up to join the crusade.  Pray for the harvest in this city of six million.  God bless you as you pray!

Keep Building!

Dear beloved:  Pictures above, left, completed slab of main house at Living Water; right, first banana crop forming
Nehemiah 6:15  So the wall was finished on the twenty fifth day of Elal, in fifty two days. v16 And it happened, when all our enemies heard of it,  and all the nations around us saw these things, that they were very disheartened in their own eyes, for they perceived that this work was done by our God.
Beloved, we have successfully completed the mixing and pouring of the slab for the main house at Living Water Orphanage.  The next phase of construction will be to lay up the block walls.  The budget for that phase is $8,300.  Could we get eight people to step up with $1,000 each?  Small gifts are welcome as well.  Let us keep building!  I bid the team USA goodbye at the airport last night, they represented Christ and Gather the Outcasts Ministry very well while they were in Kenya.  I was sad to see them go, but I know the Lord will be bringing more to see and share the vision.  Would you consider coming to Kenya to have a close up look at the work going on?  Let me know if you might be interested, there may be a group forming to come in the winter.  Pray about your part in seeing this project through to completion.  God bless you!

Hands to the Work

Dear beloved:  Pictures above, left, corn harvest; concrete slab nearly finished
Proverbs 14:23  In all labor there is profit, but idle chatter leads only to poverty  Nehemiah 2:18 And I told them of the hand of my God which had been good upon me, and also of the king's words that he had spoken to me.  So they said, " Let us rise up and build." Then they set their hands to this good work.
Beloved, we had a very productive week so far here in Mumias.  We harvested the four acres of corn, you can see the record harvest.  Then the next day a crew of thirty of us mixed and poured the thirty yard slab of concrete that is the floor of the main house at the orphanage.  God has been so good to us, the work has been a joy!  Today we are going to Bungoma to minister in the prison, and tomorrow we finish off the week by hosting a conference with out partner church.  Let's keep the construction going as the laying up of the walls is next!   Join with Gather the Outcasts to see this project through to completion.  Thank you for your prayers and support.  For more pictures you can go my my facebook page.  God bless you as you pray!

Dear beloved:  Pictures above, left, touch down at Nairobi airport, from left, driver, Rhonda, Sammy, Steve, Jim, Janet ; right, worship at New Hope Fellowship, "Break Every Chain!"
Judges 6:14 The the Lord turned to Gideon and said, "Go in this might of yours, and you shall save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have I not sent you?"  Judges 7:7 Then the Lord said to Gideon, "By the three hundred men who lapped water I will save you, and deliver the Midianites into your hand. Let all the other people go , every man to his place."
Beloved, Gideon faced the enemy with only 300 of the original 32,000 men.  The rest the Lord sent home to prove to Gideon it was not his own strength that would win the battle.  Our first day in Kenya was 7/7/17, we are going to complete some things this trip.  It's also my eighth year preaching in Africa, we are going to start some new things as well.  For sure the Lord has sent us!  We will be picking the maize crop and also mixing concrete for the slab at the main house of the Living Water Orphanage, and preaching in the church and at a conference next week.  We will be busy!   Join with Gather the Outcasts to make a difference in Africa. Thank you for your prayers and donations, may God bless you as you pray.

Kingdom of Heaven

Dear beloved:  Pictures above, planting avocado trees at Living Water Orphanage; right, my little buddy Elijah in Uganda
Matthew 7:21 "Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father in heaven. Matthew 12:28 "But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you." Matthew 18:3 "Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children. you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. v4 Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child  is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. v5: Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me."
Beloved, Jesus has a very special place in His heart for the children.  If we watch them and take care of them, we can know what it is to enter into the kingdom of heaven. Come with child like faith, give with child like faith  We are building the Living Water Orphanage in Kenya to provide a beautiful home for 30-40 orphan children, where the Name of Jesus will be lifted up..  Please join us!.  We still need $3,500 for the concrete slab of the main house. I also need money for travel for the crusades in Tanzania and Burundi.  Now is the time to give, the kingdom is now!. Thank you so much for your prayers and support, next post from Africa.  May God bless you as you pray!
