Mbeya Report


Dear beloved:  Pics  crowd shot at Uyole, Mbeya TZ; worship choir from one of participating churches

Isaiah 55:10 For as the rain comes down, and snow from heaven, and do not return there but water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, v11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;  It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the purpose for which I sent it. 

Beloved, the Word of God went forth in Mbeya and brought in a great harvest of souls.  Nearly 500 people came forward to make salvation decisions, many young adults and teens.  Many more were delivered of witchcraft spirits, for freedom Christ set them free!  God's power went forth over the crusade grounds for five days, and worship was over the mountain with Bony Mwaitege and Martha Baraka, along with many more local artists and choirs. It was truly a time of joy and jubilation! Check out my facebook page for more great pictures.  We are praying about a summer crusade in Tanzania as the door remains open there for big meetings.  Thank you to all who supported and prayed for the Mbeya crusade, it was truly a memorable time.  I have a new book on spiritual warfare ready to publish, it is called "The Battle is Raging".  I am trusting the Lord for $2,000 to get it published and into your hands, can you pray about your part in helping get it published?  May God bless you as you pray!

Glory in the Lord


Dear beloved: Pics, altar call day 3, Mbeya, TZ;  crowd shot, Mbeya Crusade

Jeremiah 9:23 Thus says the Lord, "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; v24 But let him who glories glory in this, That he knows Me and understands Me, That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth.  For in these I delight", says the Lord. 

Beloved, we wanted very much to stay up on that high mountain at Uyole, Mbeya, but alas, at the end of the crusade we had to come down and get back to the flatland and the trenches.  Monday, on the way out of town, it was pouring down the rain that the Lord had held off for the five days of the crusade.  It was showers of blessings in the natural that had already been sown in the spirit.  I thought of the scripture above as I remenisced about all the singers, pastors, and church choirs that came to sing, praise, and work for the Lord.  We had such fun together and no one was taking the glory away from the Lord.  The Bible says the "yoke of the Lord is easy, and His burden is light."  We definitely felt that in Mbeya.  We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts Ministry as we take the uplifting, soul saving good news of the gospel to the lost and hurting in Africa. As you send, we are able to go.  Thank you so much for your prayers and support.  God bless you as you pray!

Hosanna in the Highest!


Dear beloved:  pics, children at Living Water; stand of cow peas for soil building and green vegetables

Matt 21:8 Then a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road. v9  Then the multitudes who went before, and those who followed after, cried out, saying, " Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!  Hosanna in the highest!" 

Beloved, when Jesus came into Jerusalem, he was given a hero's welcome, and the people hailed him as the prophet from Nazareth of Galilee.  Yet a week later, some of the same crowd participated in the mocking, and eventually the crucifiction of our Lord and Savior.  Jesus saw first hand how fickle the emotions and passion of men can be. Had he not been the Son of God it would have been very easy for Him to abandon the whole mission and retreat to the country.  May God grant us the mercy to always stay humble and thank Him in every situation, for we know that we, too, can be fickle and easily persuaded.  May we grow in maturity to be steadfast in our love, devotion, service of our Lord Jesus.  Gather the Outcasts is dedicated to the idea that Jesus wants every person to grow into the image of Him.  That gives us reason to keep pressing forward, to not look back but keep looking ahead to the upward prize of the call of God in Christ Jesus!  We invite you to partner with Gather the Outcasts as we take the good news of the gospel to the nations of Africa.  May God bless you as you pray!
