Dear beloved: Pictures, Bony, Zeph, and children ready to plant watermelons; five star dining at the Hilton Cafe
Psalm 116:1 I love the Lord, because He has heard my voice and my supplications, v2 Because He has inclined His ear to me, therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live. v3 The pains of death surrounded me, and the pangs of Sheol laid hold of me; I found trouble and sorrow. v4 Then I called upon the name of the Lord. O Lord, I implore You, deliver my soul!
Beloved, we have been delivered of very hot and dry conditions the last few weeks here in Kenya. There are places here in the country where there is no food or water. Even some of the large cities in Kenya the water supplies have dried up. But we thank God this week it started to rain, we are thankful for our God is merciful. The spring at Living Water continues to flow, many villagers are coming there to fill up their jugs of water. To have an abundant water supply in Kenya is life itself. Jesus talked about living water also, He said, " Whoever drinks of the water that I give will never thirst again. The water that I give will become in him a fountain springing up into everlasting life." We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts as we take the living water to the people of Kenya and East Africa. I will be back in USA the latter part of April and May, if you would like for me to come share about the ministry, drop me an email and we can arrange dates. Thank you for your support and prayers, God bless you as you pray!

Dear beloved: Pics, Stevo getting baptized in the creek at Living Water; Reception desk the crew made at Living Water Home
Matthew 3:13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him v14 and John tried to prevent Hm saying, " I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?" v15 But Jesus answered and said to him, "Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he allowed Him.
Stevo, the former street boy, had resisted baptism for two months. When we talked to him about being obedient to Jesus, we told him that Jesus Himself was baptized. Jesus submitted to baptism to fulfill all righteousness, to be in right standing with God, and to prepare Him for obedience to go to the cross. Some of the street boys Stevo lived with told him it wasn't necessary, but after praying about it for a couple weeks, he submitted. The angels in heaven are now rejoicing! We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts Ministry as we take the gospel to the nations of Africa, as we preach, baptize, and teach all that He has commanded us. Last week at Living Water Fellowship we had nearly 50 people attend, glory to God! God is moving in Makunda. May God bless you as you pray!

Dear beloved: Pics, ground plowed ready for planting; Bony and Paul showing off table building skills
Mark 1:23 Now there was a man in the synagogue with an unclean spirit. And he cried out, v24 saying, "Let us alone! What have we to do with you Jesus of Nazareth? Did you come to destroy us? I know who You are, the Holy One of God! v25 But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be quiet and come out of him!" v26 And when the unclean spirit had convulsed him and cried out with a loud voice, he came out of him.
Beloved, one of the new converts at the church is a twenty year old, former street boy named Stevo. He has a heart to worship, even to write songs on the fly in the Spirit. His mind is a bit full of confusion due to the years of sniffing glue and eating garbage, but he is making progress in the kingdom. We even introduced him to hard work this week, he helped dig the ground preparing for planting maize. He needs your prayer that his body and mind can be restored and healed, and that he can become a productive soldier in the Lord's army. I also pray that his gift of singing and leading worship will bloom in the days ahead. We are finishing up final details preparing for children at the Living Water Children's Home, making tables, cabinets, and shelving. We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts Ministry as we strive to make a difference in the lives of people here in Kenya and East Africa. Whether in crusades, the children's home, or one person off the street, the Lord loves them all. May God bless you as you pray!
