Forget Not His Benefits

Dear beloved:  Pictures above, Dar es Salaam crusade; right, children and American team  at New Hope preschool, Kenya
Psalm 103:1 Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name. v2 Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all His benefits- v3 Who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, v4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion; v5 who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
Dear beloved, have you taken time to praise the Lord for all his benefits? God has been good to us here in Kenya, the abundance of rain has made the crops flourish.  We are looking forward to a great harvest.  I am also looking forward to a great harvest in Nakivale, Uganda at the Sudan Camp 2, near the Congo border.  We will be there Oct. 10-20. Thousands of refugees from several nations are in the no man's land, where they can't go back, but can't go forward either.   We pray the Lord will crown them with His love and compassion.  We still need $1,500 to meet the budget for Nakivale,  I have also incurred many expenses as I have transitioned out of hotel into my own house in Mumias.  Can you help?  I am ready to receive visitors if you are ready for a trip to Africa. Pray the Lord of the harvest to send forth workers into the harvest, it is ripe!   Thank you and may God bless you as you pray.

Righteousness Exalts a Nation

Dear beloved: pics above, left, Ngozi, Burundi Crusade; right, maize planting and avocado trees at Living Water Orphanage site in Kenya
Proverbs 14:34 Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a disgrace to any people.  Psalm 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people chosen for his inheritance. Psalm 2:2 The kings of the earth take their stand against the Lord, and against His anointed One.
Beloved, We have much to be thankful for in America, we take for granted until we don't have it.  Kenya is going through growing pains, the first election was annulled, now another election cycle is in progress.  The kings of the earth are taking their stand, so much bickering and tension. It seems at times the nation is going to break. And looking at America from afar, it seems it is going through stress as well.  What is the answer?  Jesus is the answer in every situation!  We are moving ahead with plans for a big crusade in Nakivale, Uganda, at a Sudan Refugee camp with 150,000 refugees.  We would also like to move ahead with the construction of the building at the Living Water Orphanage site.  Is God able to provide?  Yes, He moves through His people.  Pray about your part in exalting the name of Jesus forward in Africa. Thank you for your prayers and support.

Beautiful Rwanda

Dear beloved:  Pictures above, Jim and interpreter Patrick; Mass Choir recording video at Gisenyi, Rwanda
Job 8:17 What is man, that You should exalt him, that You should set Your heart on him v18 that You should visit him every morning, and test him every moment?  Psalm 8:4 What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him: v5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor.
Beloved, we wrapped up the church revival in Gisenyi with over 300 people in attendance at yesterday's meeting.  Also present were choirs from several churches, one even shot a video for a dvd they are producing to release this fall.  I was humbled by a lady who came who had no legs. I had prayed for her in the street a few days before, and she came all the way across the city in her wheelchair to attend the meeting.  Another young man came with a friend, I had prayed for him down at the beach of Lake Kivu the day before; he told me his family story of how his family was all broken apart, the seven children going in different directions.  Jesus said, "I came to bind up the broken hearted, to declare release to the prisoners."  He certainly did that this week!  I am headed to Kampala, Uganda, today, and back to Kenya later in the week.  Thank you for your prayers and support!
