Be Merciful Unto Us

Dear beloved:  Pics, Living Water Children; children having lunch on the veranda
Psalm 57:1 Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me! For my soul trusts in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, Until these calamities have passed by. v2 I will cry out to the God Most High, to God who performs all things for me. v He shall send from heaven and save me; He reproaches the one who would swallow me up.  v7 My heart is steadfast (fixed), O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and give praise.
Beloved, keep singing praises to the Lord until these calamities be passed.  The Lord is giving us a foreshadowing of the future. In order to participate in the economy, you must have the mask!  Cry out to the Lord, take refuge in His word and in the shadow of His wings.  This week has been an eventful week at Living Water Children's home.  We jumped from four to twelve children. If your heart ever desired to care for poor children in Africa, now is your opportunity.   Their stories are heart wrenching, some beyond belief.  One young girl was kidnapped on her way to school, taken to a large city and held captive.  She was eventually released and made her way to a police station, and from there given over to child protection services.  That is how we ended up with her.  Your partnership helps us care for these children with food, clothing, school fees, and medical care.  When you give to the poor, the Lord pays you back!  Pray about your partnership with Gather the Outcasts Ministry.  May God bless you as you pray.

Are We in End Times?

Dear beloved: pics, road to Living Water Children's Home; abandoned small trader's market due to corona crackdown in Mumias
Matthew 24:6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars, see that you are not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. v7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. v8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. v9 Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake.
Beloved, we have had our challenges this week.  The main bridge at Mayoni over River Nzoia tried to wash out, causing us to detour over an hour each way to get to the children's home.  We prayed for the Lord to send angels to hold the bridge from complete washout, so far it is holding and the hole has been filled.  Then our Makunda road to the Children's home has turned to a quagmire, forcing another detour of many miles to get to the home.  This is Africa!  Are we in the end times?  We have famine now from locusts and corona lockdown, pestilence from the virus, and now over 100,000 people in the west highlands have been displaced by floods and mudslides.  Many have lost their homes, which are made of mud, and all their belongings. No earthquakes as of yet, but they are coming.  Jesus said, "This is just the beginning of the birth pangs and sorrows. See to it that you are not troubled."  We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts as we share the peace given by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. May God bless you as you pray!

My Times Are in Your Hand

Dear beloved: Pics, Entry gate at Living Water Children's Home; roof is on the new church
Psalm 31:14 But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say, "You are my God." v15 My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, and from those who persecute me.  v16 Make Your face shine upon Your servant; Save me for Your mercies sake. v17 Do not let me be ashamed, O Lord, for I have called upon You; Let the wicked be ashamed; Let them be silent in the grave.
Beloved, we are living in unprecedented times.  The Lord is preparing all the people of the earth for a great awakening, a time of bountiful harvest.   Position yourself and watch the Lord work!  The times(our destinies, souls) are in His hands He is in control.  When the Lord told me to go back to Mumias to wait upon Him, he dropped two projects into the ministry with no striving. The opening of the Living Water Children's Home came to pass, and the construction of the new church moved forward with haste.  We will be ready to gather in the new church as soon as the corona virus restrictions are lifted.  I believe the turnaround for public gathering will come quickly; the virus has been crushed.  Those who wait upon the Lord and His timing, shall renew their strength, they  will mount up with wings of eagles. Pray about partnering with Gather the Outcasts Ministry here in Kenya.  We have many needs at both the Children's Home and the new church.  May God bless you as you pray!
