High Praise!


Dear beloved:  Pics, Mbeya 2021 Crusade Poster; Mbeya, 2019

Psalm 147  Praise the Lord!  For it is good to sing praises to our God; For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful. v2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem; He gathers together the outcasts of Israel. v3 He heals up the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.  v4 He counts the number of stars; He calls them all by name. v5  Great is the Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite. 

Beloved, at Gather the Outcasts crusades, we believe in giving the Lord the high praise that He is due.  A good portion of the budget for each crusade is spent on bringing in the best singers and worship leaders possible. Praise opens up people's hard hearts so they can receive the good news of the gospel.  Africans love to dance and sing, and the messages of the songs also speak to the people in ways that sometimes the preaching can't.  The Psalmist says, "Praise is beautiful."  Psalm 40:3 says, "He has put a new song in my mouth- Praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord".  So our praise can cause others to fear the Lord,and desire to come to Him.  Thank you for your prayers and support.  We could still use some more travel money, as we will be taking Covid test both going out and coming back to Kenya.  We invite you to support this great crusade.  May God bless you as you pray!

Commander of the Lord's Army


Dear beloved: Pics, Children at Living Water with new Christmas outfits; praying for a crippled man at Tarime Crusade, TZ

Joshua 5:13  And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a Man stood opposite him with his sword drawn in His hand.  And Joshua went to Him, and said to Him, "Are you for us, or for our adversaries?" v14 So He said, "No, but as Commander of the army of the Lord I have now come."  And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, "What does my Lord say to His servant?" v15 Then the Commander of the Lord's army said to Joshua, "Take your sandal off your foot, for the place where you stand is holy."  And Joshua did so.

Beloved, the end time battle between the forces of darkness and the forces of light is raging across the earth.  As warriors in the Lord's army, we are called to engage the enemy. and we need to live our lives worthy of the calling our Commander has placed upon us.  This whole earth is holy ground; the earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, the enemy is the trespasser, he thinks he rules the earth.  We are called to take the ground we stand on, to "go unto all the nations", to reach out and love those who who seem unlovable, to pray for those who seem unreachable, to touch those who are untouchable. The Lord has now come to help us in the battle, the time is growing short.  We invite you to stand with Gather the Outcasts as we go back to Mbeya, Tanzania, for a great four day crusade in February.  You can join us as part of the evangelism team prior to the crusade, or be a part of the Lord's army with your prayers and donations. The Commander is looking for willing soldiers, this battle is not for the faint.  Pray about your part in helping us gather for the kingdom in Tanzania.  May God bless you as you pray!
