Family Altars


Dear beloved: pics, children at Living Water Home; Mbeya, Tanzania, crusade, 2021

Judges 6:25 Now it came to pass that same night that the Lord said to Gideon, "Take your father's young bull, and a second bull of seven years old, and tear down the altar of Baal that your father has, and cut down the wooden image of Asherah that is beside it; v26 and build an altar to the Lord your God on top of this rock in proper arrangement, and take the second bull and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the image which you shall cut down." v27 So Gideon took ten men from among his servants and did as the Lord had said to him. But because he feared his father's household and the men of the city too much to do it by day, he did it by night.

Beloved, when Gideon was called by God to lead the childen of Israel against the Midianites, the Lord asked him to tear down the family evil altars.  Many of us are reluctant to serve the Lord all out, we are more concerned about what our family thinks about it, or about the customs and traditions of the family history.  As the end days and return of Christ draw near, the enemy onslaught against the family will increase and accelerate.  God's plan for the children is that they grow up in a loving, nurturing home, where the children learn about Jesus and desire to serve Him.  In Makunda village families are under assault from drunkenness, witchcraft curses, cultural generational curses, and other causes that result in premature death and single mothers raising children without support.  Children at Living Water Home are all from varied backgrounds of abandonment, trauma, family violence, and sicknesses such as HIV leading to premature death. Gather the Outcasts is working hard to provide a stable and loving environment for these children, where they can come to know Jesus and be healed of the traumatic events in their life. We pray continually for them to prosper in all things- their physical health, school work, etc, even as their soul prospers..Our desire is to see them become God fearing, well adjusted citizens of Kenya, leaders of the next generation.  Would you partner with us in that pursuit?  Fifty dollars per month will go a long way to provide for their basic needs of food, shelter, clothing, and school fees.  May God bless you as you pray!
