Joy to the World

Dear beloved: Pics left,  Butembo, North Kivu, Congo; right, preschool children to sponsor at $20 per month at New Hope Preschool, Kenya
Micah 5:2 But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me, The One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from old, from everlasting.  John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt (tabernacled) among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.  v15 John bore witness of Him and cried out saying, "This was He of whom I said, "He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me."
Beloved, Jesus birth was the fulfillment of many prophesies.  He was born in Bethlehem, which means in Hebrew, "House of Bread".  John the Baptist was not taken by surprise by His birth, for John said, "He was before me." The One who called Himself the Bread of Life, born in the house of Bread. Will you allow Him to tabernacle in your dwelling, your house?   In Kenya the people are busy buying cakes and gifts for each other to celebrate the Savior's birth, even the unbelievers know.  Join us as we impact Kenya and East Africa with the life saving good news of the gospel, Jesus saves!  Merry Christmas and thank you for your prayers and support.  God bless you as you pray!

A Child is Born

Dear beloved: Pictures, Left  my buddy Elijah, Tororo, Uganda; children getting water at Living Water spring, Mumias
Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a  Child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. v7 Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end. Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
Beloved, the birth of every child born brings hope into the world, to the parents, the tribe, the nation, the world, and most of all to God the Creator.  But only one child fulfilled the promise of His coming. Only one child fulfilled all the expectations of His heavenly Father.  We celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior by sharing the joy we have with those who don't know Him.  Gather the Outcasts is more than a name (the Lord gave it to me); it is the reason I live and breathe.  God has given me the outcasts to pursue for the rest of my life, those in prisons, in the streets, in the far off places in Africa.  It hasn't always been easy, no one knows, like I know, what He's done for me.  Join me in celebrating the birth of our Lord by sharing His mighty and precious name with the lost, that they may be found.  May God bless you as you pray!

The Good Shepherd

Dear beloved:  Pictures, left, Steve and Saul harvesting maize; New Hope Preschool children showing dolls from America
John 10:2 "But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. v3 To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. v4 And when he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them; and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice." v7 Then Jesus said to them again, " I am the door of the sheep. v9 I am the door, if anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find good pasture. v11 I am the good shepherd.  The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep."
Beloved, the good shepherd gives up His life for the sheep.  It is inspiring that the coming of the good shepherd was announced first to the lowly shepherds in the field, keeping watch over their flocks!  What a mirror reflection of Jesus the Christ child.  If you feel lowly or downtrodden today, know this: the Good Shepherd came to this earth to die for you!   Join with Gather the Outcasts to take the good news of the gospel to the nations of the earth. You can be a part of winning souls for Christ, as well as helping to care for the widows and orphans here in Kenya.  Be a part of what God is doing in Africa with your donation and prayers.  Team USA coming in February also if you want to set your feet on African soil.  May God bless you as you pray today!

Sowing Bountifully

Dear beloved:  Pictures, chicks now 30 days old; 5,000 liter tank for house water supply.
2 Corinthians 9:6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully (with blessings). v7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity (compulsion), for God loves a cheerful giver.  v8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. v9 As it is written: "He has dispersed abroad, He has given to the poor; His righteousness endures forever."
Beloved, things are moving forward at the Living Water Orphanage site.  The chicken project is taking off, the one hundred chicks are growing fast.  And last week we erected the tank stand and put a 5,000 liter tank on top to supply water to the main house. A USA team is coming in February to install the water lines, pump, and solar collector; if you would like to be part of that mission let me know. We have much more to accomplish before the year is over; opportunities for giving include: 1. Construction materials and labor to complete main house construction. 2. Materials and labor for wall around main house. 3. Furnishings for the house after completion, including kitchen supplies, beds, desks, furniture. 4. Operating expenses for first year.  Your year end gift is tax deductible on 2017 tax returns when given before December 31.  If you have any questions about any of these projects, please email me.  Thank you and God bless you!
