Nehemiah 2: 18 And I told them of the hand of my God which had been good upon me, and also the king's words that he had spoken to me. So they said, "Let us arise and build." Then they set their hands to this good work. 4:13 Therefore I positioned men behind the lower parts of the wall, at the openings; and I set the people according to their families, with their swords, their spears, and their bows. v14 And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, "Do not be afraid of them. Remeber the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses." v15. And it happened, when our enemies heard that it was known to us, and that God had brought their plot to nothing, that all of us returned to the wall, everyone to his work.
Beloved, the walls of the Living Water Orphanage home are going up! In spite of trials and tribulations, and curses of the enemy, the good plans of the Lord are going forward. The children of the village are all gathering around to watch the work, they are very interested. Also on the days the materials were hauled onto the site, and the first blocks were set in place, we had two days of very nice rain to break the two month old drought. God is showering us with His blessings! This is the time to move forward, the move of the Spirit will accelerate. Partner with Gather the Outcasts Ministry to see the dream of a beautiful home for orphan children come to pass. Your faithfulness will bring it to completion. Thank you for your prayers and support. God bless you as you pray!

Mark 9:23 And Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes." Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, "Lord, I believe, help my unbelief." v25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it:" Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you come out of him and enter him no more!" v26 Then the spirit cried out and convulsed him greatly, and came out of him. And he became as one dead, so that many said, "He is dead." v27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose.
Beloved, last week I prayed for an old man in the village with a dumb spirit (he can hear), he had not spoken for many years. Two days later he came to the orphanage site where I was working. He came up to the fence and motioned to have me put my hand on his head and pray for him again. After praying for him, he started to try to speak the words, "Asante, Jesu!, thank you, Jesus" Some sound was coming. I instructed him to just keep saying it over and over, I believe it will be a progressive miracle given as a testimony to the whole village where the Living Water Orphanage is being built. Jesus the healer is touching the people of Kenya every day, they are hungry for the word and for His healing. Partner with Gather the Outcasts as we taking the life saving, healing message of the gospel to the nations of Africa. Jesus spoke it Himself, "The Lord has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind." May God bless you as you pray!

Dear beloved: Pics, crew working on water system, Living Water Orphanage, l to r, Paul, Jim, Simon, Zephaniah, Alan; chicken project, 8 weeks old.
Matthew 16:24 Then Jesus said to His disciples, " If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. v25 For whoever desires to save his life shall lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. v26 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
Beloved, God has so created us that when we give up our life and our own desires to follow Jesus, at that point we actually "find" ourself. And the harder we try to hang on to our desires and exclude Him from directing us, the more we lose our life. What have you resolved to give up, if anything, for the kingdom of God in 2018? Three years ago a prophetess called and prophesied this verse over me: Hebrews 12:4, "You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, in your striving against sin." I have to say in December that prophetic word was fulfilled. The sacrifice of our Savior was brought into sharper focus. We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts mission to Africa, as we carry the cross of Christ to the lost, the widows, the orphans. May God bless you as you pray!

Micah 4:1 Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of the Lord's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; And peoples shall flow to it. v2 Many nations shall come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths." Micah 4:6 "In that day," says the Lord, "I will assemble the lame, I will gather the outcast and those whom I have afflicted; v7 I will make the lame a remnant, and the outcasts a strong nation; So the Lord will reign over them in Mount Zion from now on, and forever."
Beloved, as we cross over into the Year 2018, now is the time to assess, be renewed and restored. I will be preaching an all night kesha in Shibale on New Year's Eve; we will be thanking God for all the great victories of the past year, but looking forward with anticipation for the victories yet to come. God has been merciful and very kind to me; he has protected me from many attacks of the enemy. He has added years to my life, to Him be the glory! We invite you to join Gather the Outcasts as a monthly partner or with a one time donation, as we share the good news of the gospel in six countries in East Africa. We are also helping to take care of the widows and orphans in our Living Water Orphanage Project and New Hope Preschool Sponsor Program. Any questions you have feel free to email me. All donations qualify for tax deduction as we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit ministry. Thank you so much for your prayers and support. May God bless you as you pray!
