Praise Defeats the Enemy

Dear beloved: pics, Orphan children at Living Water,  Living Water Church, trusses and roof going up
2 Chronicles 20:20 So they rose early in the morning and went out into the wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, 'Hear me, O Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the Lord your God, and you shall be established; believe in His prophets and you shall prosper." v21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the Lord, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: "Praise the Lord, For His mercy endures forever."
Beloved, the Lord answered prayers this week as we now have the first four orphan children in our care at Living Water Children's Home. This was a sudden blessing from the Lord that was an answer to prayer going back several years.  There are more children to come. Living Water home will be their home for now and into the future unless some family members can be traced and they can be united with them. We are having to up our game in all aspects to take care of the needs of these children, and prepare for more.  Meanwhile, progress on the new church continues.  This week we built and raised up the trusses, we are ready now to put on the sheet iron and finishing touches such as doors and windows.  When the corona restrictions are lifted, we will be ready to praise the Lord in the beauty of holiness as a body of believers.  "Praise the Lord, for His mercy endures forever!"  Pray about your part in partnering with Gather the Outcasts in Kenya.  Maybe the Lord would have you become a monthly sponsor of one of these orphan children.  God bless you as you pray!

Keep Building

Dear beloved:  Pics,  pouring the concrete floor at Living Water Church; ready mix at the job
Nehemiah 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.  Remember 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 brought their plot to nothing, that all of us returned to the wall, everyone to his work.
Dear beloved, it has been refreshing to get out in the fresh air and work every day as we move forward in the construction of Living Water Church.  We have faced opposition and many distractions, virus invasion and curfews. But the people have a heart to work.  This week we mixed concrete by hand from morning till night for three days, now the floor is finished and curing. I didn't know it was possible to hand mix that much concrete!  This church will be a testimony to the power of God as we reach out to the lost in Makunda village.  Next week we will be building trusses and putting the sheet iron on the roof.  When I was in Nairobi at the start of the corona virus invasion, I had a ticket to fly out to the USA.  The Holy Spirit told me to go back to Mumias, this would be the safest and most productive place to be through the duration of the virus pandemic.  Once again, the Lord has given me good direction.  We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts as we reach the lost in Kenya and East Africa. Pray about your part in seeing the good plans of the Lord come to pass.  May God bless you as you pray!
