Loaves and Fishes

Dear beloved; pics, Bujumbura, Burundi Crusade; Beautiful Lake Tanganyika, looking across toward Democratic Republic of Congo
Matt: 14:17 And they said to Him, "We have only five loaves and two fishes." v18 He said, "bring them here to Me." v19 Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and two fish, and looking to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes.  v20 So they all ate and were filled, and when they were finished they took up twelve baskets of fragments that remained. v21 Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
Beloved, Jesus didn't just minister the good news of the gospel, He also got involved in the daily lives of the people wherever He went.  In the scripture above, we see Him feeding many thousands, because He had compassion for their hunger!  I have recently been taking care of two families that the Lord has brought to me.  First, the family of Benjamin, the diabetic ex-muslim boy, who is one of nine children.  The mother is gone, the father no work.  The children are hungry and have many needs, including Benjamin's ongoing medical issues.  The second family, eight children who also need food and shelter.  The mother is in the hospital, unable to walk, the step father a drinker who provides little for the family.  If you can help Gather the Outcasts feed these families until they get back on their feet it would be greatly appreciated.  Partner with us as we reach out to the poor and needy of Kenya.  There are other opportunities for giving as we near the end of the year including the Kisii Crusade coming up December 13-16.  Furniture and registration needs for the Living Water Children's Home.  May God bless you as you pray!

A Man's Gift

Dear beloved:  Pictures, weeding crew at Living Water shamba; Burundi Crusade, 2017
Proverbs 18:16 A man's gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men (kings).  Proverbs 19:17 He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord, and He will pay back what he has given.  Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.
Beloved, next week I will be in Burundi for the crusade in Bujumbura.  I have received an invitation letter from the Vice President of the country inviting me to Burundi. Other high officials of the government, including the President are planning to attend.  Pray that the outpouring of the Holy Spirit will shake the nation of Burundi!  Back home in Kenya, the ex muslim boy, now named Benjamin, came to New Hope church last Sunday and gave his confession of faith. He and his mother will be baptized next week when she comes back from Nairobi. His father told me last week they were just waiting for the boy to die from complications related to diabetes when I went to pray for him. God gave him a mighty healing!  Pray for this family as there are eight children and the father in the family yet to come to the Lord Jesus.  God is moving through the Living Water Orphanage to transform lives in the village of Makunda. We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts as we go to the harvest, one nation and one person at a time.  Thank you for your prayers and support. God bless you!
