Well in Fontaine

Water is Life is a common saying in Haiti and it’s a precious commodity because the majority of the country has no running water in their homes. The rely strictly on the local well and when that breaks down they are forced to walk either to a neighboring village well putting more wear and tear on that one or going to the river to drink contaminated water. Many Haitians suffer from cholera, dysentery malaria all from dirty water simply because they either have no local well or the one they have is in need of repair and nobody has the money to fix it. Most wells average anywhere from $1300-$2200 to repair all depending on what needs replaced. We praise God because since the ministry first started we have drilled 4 brand new wells and this will be the 15th well we have repaired! There is nothing quite like seeing fresh water flowing and people rejoicing and smiling simply because they have fresh clean water. We always share the gospel and make sure they know it is God that supplied the blessing;)

Dr. Ebents House Calls

PSALM139LOVE is expanding into the medical field on a more semipermanent basis ! 

In the past few years on mission trips we’ve been able to hold successful medical  outreaches lead by my best friend Dr Ebents st Ulysse who I met in 2014 on a mission trip to Haiti. 

A few of the past trips he accompanied us on all of our home visits and while we gave out food baskets he offers medical care. 

It was at this time we truly saw the need to have a “ local doctor “ one who worked strictly for the ministry -many of these elderly, abandoned mothers with children and disabled would NEVER be able to even afford the motorcycle ride to the hospital let alone get the care they needed. They would simply lay and suffer in their home that has no electricity, no running water a and pray the sickness pass on its own. 

Dr Ebents recently graduated Laureate of his class which is the VERY TOP-equivalent to our VALEDICTORIAN here in the states. 

He moved back to Bohoc and because of the state if Haiti with the gang warfare and chaos isn’t getting hired by any hospital and this is where we seized the  opportunity to bring him in on board to work with us!

 

He’s very excited to help his people and has always loved working with us and now we are asking  our friends to get behind this worthy cause by donating. 

We will need funding for his salary, medicines, money for hospital visits ( if we need to take a patient) and prayerfully a motorcycle for him to travel on. 

 

One time donations as well as Monthly Partners coming alongside us are greatly appreciated.

Gaspard Well Repaired

THERE WAS MUCH REJOICING IN GASPARD! Woo hoo- 👏🏻 The ministry had its 14th well repaired today!!! The folks in gaspard have been forced to walk one hour to a well in Gadiram to get water ( we actually fixed that well in gadiram a few years ago) they would carry a 5 gallon bucket ( weighs 41 pounds when filled) And walk with that back home. This welll broke down over a year ago and life that is already hard in Haiti got even worse for the community. PLEASE watch this video as you will see the pure joy on their faces and they are so happy! We have another well in Fontaine that still needs repaired and we need $900 now (full price is $1350) which would provide and entire community with health and happiness.

A Little Bit About Us

So you would like to know what we are all about? The short version is  1. ​Building Agricultural Training Centers to teach Haitians how to take care of themselves. 2. Cl​ean water by fixing and digging wells as water is life.  3. Evangelism or spreading the Word of God sharing the living water of the Gospel. 

Many of you​ are new donors lately and haven’t seen this video made for Psalm139LOVE by John Lain. It truly is about RELATIONSHIPS that we have in Haiti. Most everyone there is family to us and many have been my dear friends since my very first trip in 2008.God blessed me with a husband, Paul Pecott, that  that is passionate like I am about ministering in Haiti.

We have an amazing team Josh Leventhal, Augustave Anson, Borgella Jodelin, Brunot Jean , Ritho , Bisson, and Madame Elimane that God handpicked and knit us together. We were honored to have had MFI choose Psalm139LOVE last July to follow us one Sunday and film our entire day. Hopefully this gives you a little insight to our ministry. Thanks to all of our donors who trust us with your donations and those who pray for us.

Here are a couple of video's about how we started, some of the things that have been accomplished and plans for the future. Any questions feel free to contact us. Thanks for checking us out and enjoy the video and our website.

Donations & Monthly Supporters

We ​have a variety of projects to choose from for you to donate towards or you can be a monthly supporter. Monthly supporters supply the salaries for the Haitian employees and well as the nuts and bolt​s background costs for the charity as Amanda & Paul do not take a salary.  Please consider even smaller amounts monthly as no amount is too small and goes so far towards helping those less fortunate in Haiti. Thank you for considering support for Psalm 139 Love.

​​Food Baskets​

On my first mission trip to Haiti in 2008 I started giving out food baskets and it has continued to this day and even more so as we hit a record breaking month in May. Thank you Jesus!

In fact a few months ago I cried out to God and asked Him to expand our territory as there are many mommas who have escaped from the gang warfare in port au prince to come live in the countryside only to find no jobs are available.

Our team is approached daily with folks having gone days with no food and it breaks my heart. We are the only ministry in our area that has a regular food program so we are constantly being asked to help.

We were blessed to give out 35 food baskets to extremely needy families with our focus being in the elderly and the abandoned mothers with children.

A number of these families have been “ adopted” by our friends here that give $100 a month so they have a regular food basket they can count on however many families would live to have a caring soul help them because there are no jobs, no welfare, no government help and no food banks. It’s one thing for adults to skip meals but we are talking many children who go days without anything to eat.

If you would like to “adopt “ a family please message me and I can give you a choice of which one touches your heart. There are many that are praying for someone to love them and help them out . I will personally send you photos of each food basket that went out with your donation plus a little bit of their life story.

Here’s just a few of last months recipients.

CLEAN WATER -4 wells repaired in one month!

     Clean water is something we usually take for granted here in America because it’s always there on tap whether we need to shower, wash clothes, drink or use it for cooking-it’s something we don’t think about because it’s always there simply by turning on the tap. This is not the case in Haiti where folks rely on local wells to get water because nobody has running water in their homes. Their day starts out by taking their 5-gallon bucket 🪣 to the local well, filling it up and carrying it home (weighs about 40 pounds when full) or if they are blessed, they have a wheelbarrow (those cost about $100 in Haiti so many hand carry)

 In February we received a generous donation, and our friend says we could use as we see fit. I prayed about it and I clearly heard God tell me CLEAN WATER /WELLS was on His mind. Little did I know EVERY well was broken in our area!! That’s when I heard the Lord tell me there were 5 to fix and so far, 4 of those are now up and running!! We still have 1 that needs to be repaired and is about $2,000 to get it ready.

Here are some videos/photos of the 4 that are completed:) 

The Nicodenes new home has been built!

As a ministry we built two houses over 4 years ago and to be honest we didn’t have another thought about trying to build another one., BUT GOD!

I first met Frer Nicodene and his wife about 4 years ago when I visited Haiti. We had been providing a food basket for an elderly blind man named Oldabert who had been living with his brother but when his brother moved away, leaving him behind, there NOBODY left to look after him.

This is when the Nicodenes stepped in and started taking care of him so of course I wanted to meet them personally.

The first time I met them was extremely humbling-here was a family, not related by natural blood, that allowed this little blind man to live with them.

Madame Nicodene cooks, bathes, washes his clothes etc. and is basically a nurse for him. They had 4 children, themselves plus Oldabert living in what would be called a shack at best.

They told me they didn’t have much but they were willing to share because it was the CHRISTIAN thing to do. The day I met them they told me about how they had planned to build a bigger house but that someone stole their big ox in the middle of the night and they were very sad. 

Over the years they have remained faithful to taking care of Oldabert and praising God for what they had-I’ve visited them every time I’ve been in country, and they are a joy to see and always smiling.

The friends of our ministry have seen and heard about them often and praise the Lord that God touched people’s hearts and spoke to THEM about providing a home.

 

God has blessed them for their faithfulness!

Not only did they get a new home, but Oldabert was blessed with a new metal bed frame, mattress, beautiful bedding and soft new pajamas to sleep in. He told Anson that he felt like a king in paradise!

I’m the next week you’ll see the house with windows and doors which a few donors are providing as it wasn’t in the original cost of the plan we had.

We are now starting to think about expanding our ministry to build small 2-4 bedroom homes once we get solid plans for each size! 

Psalm139LOVE School Visit🥰 

Paul Pecott and I had the chance to hold a board meeting with Pastor Arias along with the teachers and they wanted to share with us and you how they felt about the ministry taking over the school after the other ministry abandoned them.

The teachers RARELY got paid and there wasn’t a hot meal for teachers or children the 3 years the former ministry ran the school -this has all changed thanks to YOU!

The school lunch program is an estimated cost of $6,650 Trinity Hope of Tennessee is who we pay, and they have a director in country that oversees the program. It could be more with the inflation the country is experiencing. It’s about 75% higher prices than I’ve seen in years;(  We still need $3,500 to pay it off.

It breaks down to

31 cents a meal

$40 a day

$800 a month

To feed 120 kids, 6 teachers and 4 cooks.

The Doctor Is In

Dr St-ulysse Ebents was extremely busy while he was with with us the entire week we were in Haiti. He went out with us when we delivered food baskets and saw over 100 folks throughout that time.

However when went to our new Psalm139LOVE school in monac-he saw 70+ patients in one day all by himself! And had medicine for EVERY SINGLE ONE ❤️

A big thank you to every friend of ours who has donated towards our medical outreach!

Food Basket Delivery

Praise the Lord because in this mission trip we were able to distribute over 30 food baskets!!

Here is one of our faves.

Paul and I stopped by to visit Madame Normil (Job Normil) mom with Dr St-ulysse Ebents and we were HAPPY to give her a food basket. Turns out she’d been out of food for a few weeks;(

She is a GOOD WOMAN -she has her boy Robertho, her daughter passed away about 8 months ago and she now has her 4 grandchildren to take care of plus they took in the little cutie Youdlie (sitting on my lap).

She was a restavik (a child slave) and was treated badly by a woman in a village about two hours away. This woman RESCUED her! Madame Normil mom passed away about a month ago, so she now watches over all of them.

All the kids were in school (they received scholarships from the ministry) except Youdlie who had scabies on her scalp and wasn’t allowed to return til it healed.

We had medicine for that, and the HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE Madame Normil has. We gave one month of pills to her.

Folks you are making a real difference in the lives of many Haitians that would not be able to help themselves-THANK YOU!

PRAISE THE LORD!! PART​ 1 of 2 SALVATION!

This is what it’s ALL ABOUT!

As we were heading back from doing a food delivery BISSON had us stop by this man’s house. What happened next was was truly a miracle! His family were all Christian and they told us many missionaries had stopped by to share the gospel but he would NOT receive Jesus.

Today was the day of his salvation!

Pierre Relus is now our brother in Christ-we really feel like this was his last chance as he’s very sick. God is so amazing in guiding us to him. Dr St-ulysse Ebents gave him pain meds but it’s probably a short time he has here in earth.

GLORY TO GOD!!!

BAIL CHURCH DEDICATION​

A​ little over a year and a half ago we had a Charles Stanley Solar Audio Bible given to the young boy you see in the photo who was named Jolin.

We sent him to the hospital but unfortunately, he had stage 4 bone cancer that had metastasized throughout his body.

We bought him a mattress, body cushion, a radio and Josh brought items we ordered that would occupy his mind like books in creole and a paint set plus showered him with cards that showed love and support for those praying for him in America.

Unfortunately, he passed away but not before he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior along with his mom and 50 others in the village!

We sent Pastors Azelin and Barnabas to continue discipleship and on each trip we have taken there 50+ have come into the family of Christ.

Josh felt lead that his church The Olive Tree Messianic Fellowship would want to be involved and they bought the land the church now sits in.

Dr Kynan Bridges from Grace and Peace Global Fellowship asked our super supporter Winnie what she needed and when she told him about building the need for a church, he donated the $5,000 it cost to build it.

Josh brought a team from his church in Tennessee and they dedicated one week of their mission trip in helping with facilitating this project. They put their sweat equity in and helped the Haitian masons and carpenters and even the entire village chipped in!

We were able to dedicate the church in the recent trip we took in August of 2022.

Jolins grandma who was rejecting the gospel on every trip.

SAMANTA WIDOWS GARDEN SUCCESS ​

Samantas husband left her while she was still in the hospital having their 3rd baby -sold the land around her stick and cement home for $250 and abandoned them,

When she got out, she was told that if she could come up with the $250, she could buy her land back.

Thanks to David-Maxine Balsbaugh of #hopeseedsinternational and the MUSTARD SEED PROJECT they bought her land back! The ministry bought her all the necessary tools and

Agro Louis Ritho along with agro Borgella Jodelin and agro Brunot Jean they built her garden.

As you can see in the video, she just harvested the corn 🌽 and in between the corn she has sweet potatoes 🍠 growing -WOWZERS!!

Every single inch is being used and she can now start making money which will help her to be self-sufficient. This is a very successful widows garden and I’m so proud of our team!

​​School Lunch Program​

We are very excited to announce we will be operating our first ever Psalm139LOVE school in Monac. This is the village where we began working and drilled our very first well back in 2015. We have maintained a great relationship with Pastor Arias and the folks there and we now have the unique opportunity to run the beautiful school there after the ministry that built it pulled out of the area.

We have approached it a bit differently and have the 5 teachers on a guaranteed monthly salary so all the children can come to school for free.

The next step was how to feed 110 children a day-we were referred to Trinity Hope out of Tennessee and talked with the director about their school lunch program that has been working in Haiti with huge success.

For a grand total of $6,000 which breaks down to $600 a month (about 30 cents a meal) we would drive our military truck to the food depot in the next town over in Hinche at the beginning of the month, drop off the food at our beautiful cooking center we built in 2016, and be secured.

Trinity Hope will provide a director who will come twice a month for oversight, he will weigh each child and determine the portion for each student and make sure the food is being used properly.

The parents will be bringing the charcoal or wood needed to cook the food, help prepare the meals or work in the community garden we have just built-this way they are putting their “skin in the game” ;)

This is an organization we are very excited to partner with and will be meeting with our regional director on our upcoming trip!

PSALM139LOVE held its first ever Pastors seminar which was a 2-day event where 50 pastor and leaders from as far away as two hours joined together, at A​EM Church.

Winnie Saringo Ashwood Phil and Hennry James Idleburgh taught on being a preacher's kid/wife, end times, bible prophecy, and prayer.

At the end of the conference, I was so happy that we could give everyone who attended a few neckties, a Charles Stanley Solar Audio Bible and Ben who was there on behalf of Hope Seeds International and David-Maxine Balsbaugh gave each attendee a family pack of seeds. 

We would love to have you partner with us on a nightly basis and you can do that by going to Psalm139LOVE.com or you can donate to any project of your choice.

A big thank you to those who shared the gospel, to winnie who really stepped up and helped fundraise to pay the food costs and to my dear friend Pastor Donacien Azelin for arranging everything in country.

We truly are STRONGER TOGETHER ❤️

​​Miracle of the Hoop House​

Josh Leventhal Paul Pecott Susan Stewart and I were in Haiti in January….

When we tried to arrange to get the parts needed for this hoop house everyone says it couldn’t be done.,

1. The shade cloth is custom made by only one provider and they usually took 7 weeks to make it. BUT GOD! After I called them and explained what we were doing in Haiti it was ready in TWO WEEKS because they out a rush order on it!

2.The special components have been hard to find and then require 12 hours of labor that Sustainable Food Productions SFP lead by Joe Perkins and his crew work on. They managed to find EVERYTHING and supplied our kit! Thank you guys!

 3. Many missionaries in Haiti need both of these items  but it’s been next to impossible to find the metal poles and right size PVC pipes.

BUT GOD! A big thank you to Jonathan Euler who bought ALL of the poles and pipes needed whole buying his own for his hoop house by going to Cap Haitian twice! This is a long journey and he couldn’t find all he needed on one trip. He willingly put it on his credit card knowing we’d pay him when we could get the money to him. Missionaries working with missionaries’

4. We walked in faith not having really raised any funds BUT GOD through a massive blessing had a painting sell ( that had been listed for over 9 months) SEL and the proceeds were earmarked for Psalm139LOVE! This really cool painting was donated to Georgeana Ireland gallery and on behalf her daughter Carissa Ireland who has been to Haiti before with another team and then with the ministry of Psalm139LOVE As she has been close friends with Augustave Anson a few years.

On behalf of all the board Barbara Howard, Josh, Paul, me and our Haitian team Anson, Brunot Jean , Borgella Jodelin, Louis Ritho BISSON and Job Normil we say THANK YOU TO GOD FIRST and then to all who made this possible!! Trust me this was nothing short of a miracle!

Thank you to Missionary Flights International for our partnership because we could fly the shade cloth and parts bag with us!

Thank you to Many Hands for Haiti who has a pro team that assembled it in a few days while our guys could learn at the seminars ❤️

Praise the Lord!

We held an outreach in bail where I shared my testimony of called tobe a missionary at the age 5 but because I found out later in life that o was conceived from a one night stand, having never met my earthly father I felt abandoned and like I was a mistake-how I turned to alcohol but was delivered and have been sober 21 years-and how God told me to read Psalm139 one night and how that ministered to me that He created me and He was my true Father.

There were some elderly men along with many others including children ( 51 total) who accepted Jesus!!

Susan Stewart followed up with what it’s like to be in a real relationship now that they accepted Jesus. How to keep praying and believing that He truly loves them in such a special way.

Pastors Donacien, Azelin, Barnabas, Formilus have been in this village since we helped a little boy named Jolin who had bone cancer and passed away.

Augustave Anson translated passionately, and I think he has the anointing for Pastor!

Paul, Josh, Karens and Brunot were there to support all that went on.

We thank Calvary Chapel Fellowship (our home church) for sponsoring this outreach!!

Without them this couldn’t have been done.

Thank you, Pastor Danny Hodges and Wendy;)

Psalm 139 Love ATC keeps getting blessed!

Anyone close to us literally sees Gods hand in this ministry in amazing miraculous ways!

My childhood friend has donated all the professional farm grade irrigation in the past and now we took another step by laying down. some of the plastic rolls he donated!

This plastic will :

1. Keep moisture in the ground

2. Protect the irrigation from the sun

3. Basically eliminate weeds

4. Protect the plants

Our team of Augustave Anson Agro Brunot Jean Agro Borgella Jodelin Agro Louis Ritho and BISSON are overjoyed to have this now as it will be a huge improvement to our farm!

When I told them a few months ago we were going to bring this down they took a field trip to a HUGE farm a few hours away that uses the plastic covering so they could learn more about it.

Thank you to my for special friend and his wife for truly supporting Psalm139LOVE!

They have donated a lot of irrigation hose to the other farms and gardens we started also and because of this a LOT of food is being grown much more efficiently.

AMAZING AUGUST -BACK TO SCHOOL! 

Illiteracy is extremely high in Haiti as well as food insecurity and the way to combat both is to send children to school where they get an education and a hot meal each day. Sometimes the only meals they have are the ones the school provides.

The problem is school is not free and it costs about $120 a year to send a child which makes it next to impossible for families that are struggling just to put food on the table.

Psalm139LOVE is excited to announce that as of today we have sponsored 53 children with school scholarships! My goal was 25 and I prayed we could reach that number however God was ready to show up and show off and I couldn’t be happier. We’d like to reach 50 now and have children that are praying that they can go.

If you can spare $120 we will select a child for you and not only are you blessing that child you are relieving a lot of stress from the moms or dads that worry about feeding their kids each day.

While the children are in school the parents get some much needed downtime but they also are

“ putting their skin in the game “ and will be helping out at the Psalm139LOVEATC. They will be helping plant, water, weed and harvest the vegetables and fruits which will give them pride in knowing they are not just getting a hand out but a hand up, give them a sense of purpose, plus learn practical application skills for their own gardens. In fact this is the way most missionaries work these types of programs and it’s system that’s successful . We already have had some of the single moms at the ATC that we’ve been blessing and they are truly enjoying being there as well as fellowshipping with other ladies that have been struggling.

​​Food Baskets​ August 2021​

This is another project that is truly beneficial as we have a lot of widows or abandoned mother’s with children that are living in our village. It seems we are finding out about moms that have had their husbands got to the Dominican Republic never to be heard from or seen again and no money being sent.

This is truly heartbreaking and many of these moms don’t even have time to grieve because they are now worried about how to make money to feed their family.

There is no safety net in Haiti and no welfare or food banks to go to so they simply can go days without eating. If you’d like to provide a family with food you can donate online and we will choose who will receive it and you will get a photo sent to you of who you bless.

Here are some recipients of these previous months food deliveries.

Community Gardens August 2021

Our team visited both community gardens that we are working with and headed up by two pastors on our evangelism team. There was a problem with his well down by the end of the field not working properly so he didn’t have the adequate water to supply all he needed to take care of the entire land he’s working on that’s right next to the church.

We are very excited to have worked with our friend Darrell Tonsing who is a fellow missionary and spilt the cost of fixing that well!  This is a great example of missionaries working with missionaries and we have been blessed by him as he helmed this project after we were gone. This is the 7th well that was fixed that we took part in.

Pastor Dabou has his garden by his church in Terre Glisee and it’s literally a HUGE COMMUNITY project with many coming together to help and our amazing team of guys will be checking on both gardens periodically to lend their expert knowledge in how to best take care of all they are growing . 

Charles Stanley Audio Bibles July 2021

Psalm139LOVE has been EXTREMELY blessed by our partnership with Charles Stanley Ministries who gave us a huge donation of their solar audio Bibles to distribute in Haiti. Many folks in Haiti can’t read and if they can they need glasses/reading glasses which many don’t have access to. I can’t begin to tell you what a hot ticket item these are! Pretty much everywhere I go I am asked if I can spare one or a few for pastors;)

Youseline Pierre Louis is my dear friend I’ve known since 2008 and she asked for ten for the widows she watches over and in this video she gave them out and my heart is so happy!

Thank you so much Charles Stanley Ministries!

Food Baskets & June/ July 2021 Updates

Food baskets are truly a huge blessing to the widows/families we have them to in Haiti. Many have been abandoned by their husbands or he has died and they have no job and no way to make any money to buy food.

Gas was $5 a gallon US while we were there which has driven up the price of everything especially food and has made it impossible for some to get even one meal a day.

Below are some pictures of our friends that received food baskets.

If you want to donate towards providing much needed food please place that in the memo section and we will be sure every dollar goes into a food basket. You will also get a photo of the family that receives it ❤️Psalm139LOVE June/July update

Our board member Josh Leventhal and I returned from a very successful mission trip June 29-July 6th below are some videos and photo updates.

I post almost daily on facebook at Psalm139LOVE or on my personal page Amanda Backensto Pecott if you’d like to see more of all that was accomplished On this trip

1. 4 people were saved

2. We bought a flatbed motorcycle

3. We brought in the rest of the donated irrigation hose that will be used at the Psalm139LOVEATC so the entire farm will be getting watered.

4. We provided food baskets for 8 families/widows

5. Provided tin needed for a roof

CTN TV Show May 2021

Here is the link to watch our program ! Paul and I were honored to be in CTN Christian Television Network

Bay Area Focus program that was hosted by Darlene Greenlee.

Psalm139LOVE was featured for the full 30 minute segment and already we have seen new supporters and friends of the ministry. We have already been told they would like us back within six months and we were told they were impressed by all that we were able to accomplish especially considering we don’t live in country and both Paul and I work full time jobs as well as run the ministry.

A special thank you to Patrick Simmons for referring us to Darlene and in turn we were able to pay it forward and now David Balsbaugh from Hope Seeds has been invited to be a guest also!

Psalm139LOVE is not just Paul Pecott and me.. God is virtually guiding us as our chief commander. Josh Leventhal Barbara Howard Augustave Anson Brunot Jean Borgella Jodelin Louis Ritho Bisson Madame Elimane as well as our MONTHLY PARTNERS and those that give to many of our projects. It truly takes all of you ! Without your support financially and and prayerfully we couldn’t accomplish Gods Vision for the ministry.

We love and appreciate all of you 😉

Marvelous May 2021

Our board member Josh Leventhal took down his first team this month and was joined by Chris and Gideon Stewart from their home church Olive Tree Messianic Fellowship In Tennessee. They worked on setting up our solar system at our house which will be a huge blessing because we will have electricity which means we will have lights and fans ! You have no idea how hard it is to sleep while sweating at night and then try to put contact lenses in by flashlight! The team blessed the house by buying a freezer so we can have cold drinks and they provided a new roof over our kitchen and storage hall. They also worked setting up a community garden in Cayhonde ana few different villages like Monac by doing prayer walks and ministering to many folks... including our team.

Flower Fundraiser May 2021

 May started off with a BANG !

First off we held our 2nd Mothers Day Flower/Plant fundraiser at our home Church Of CCF CALVARY CHAPEL FELLOWSHIP.

We were very blessed to have all the plants/flowers donated by my boss Ron and during the 3 services we held it we were able to not only raise a lot of money towards our Gazebo but we also met a lot of folks at Church that didn’t know us.

We are so thankful to Pastor Danny Hodges for allowing us to hold the fundraiser, for supporting us as monthly missionaries and to our friends Jewels and her son Jacob , Hugo, Nicole and her daughter Sarah for volunteering their time to help us out.

Future Projects May 2021

GAZEBO FOR THE ATC - $2,000

Our ATC is now the ONLY working farm in our village and it’s getting quite the attention! There is a college for agronomists in Pignon where the President of the school is so impressed he wants to start holding seminars on the property and where his students can get hands on practical skills training.This requires a gazebo that will serve multiple purposes

1. Hold seminars where our ATC team can start training farmers plus local colleges can come and get hand on training and not just book knowledge.

2. A place for the guys to cool off and enjoy lunch in the shade

3. An open air farmers market where we can sell our fruits and veggies a few times a week instead of the locals only being able to buy at the Monday Market . There are other markets but they are over 25 minutes away and most folks can’t afford the motorcycle ride.

4. This could serve also as a guardhouse which would be utilized especially around harvest time to protect our crops from being “ harvested” by the locals .

A FLAT BED MOTORCYCLE-$3,000

The land is pretty big and this transportation would make it very easy to not only get around the property but also allow the guys to go to local market with the vegetables. It can also be used for delivering goats and food baskets and is very versatile.. heck one of these came even fit up six people in it !

FOOD BASKETS / SHOES / CHARLES STANLEY SOLAR AUDIO BIBLES

This month we were so blessed to give out 15+ Food Baskets to families in great need. We gave out 75 pairs shoes

Thanks to our partnership with Charles Stanley we went out and evangelized and handed out over 50 of these Bibles

There was so much more accomplished but if I wrote it all our it’d be a novel so feel free to go to my facebook page where I still have yet to post it all but you can get a good idea of all that went on .

LOOKING FORWARD

Paul and I have been asked to go onto CTN Christian Television Network Bay Area Focus program on May 10th where we will have the full 30 minute show to talk about Psalm139LOVE. We are very excited to share all God is doing and praying that this might open doors to have more partners and support for the ministry. 

If you would like to give towards one of these projects or become a MONTHLY PARTNER please visit our website at Psalm139LOVE.com

Landowners April 2021

Our Psalm139LOVEATC is a 3.75 acre piece of land that we haven’t even had one year and the Lord has allowed us to accomplish so much! We have a well, well tower run by a solar pump and panels , professional farm grade irrigation and an 8,000 gallon cistern. We had made a down payment and were under a 4 year contract to pay off the land but we felt the need to pay it off in full on this trio and that was the desire of our hearts.

Without sending out any letters stating our need we PRAYED and prayed intensely. Just about a week later God put it on a friends heart and we went down with FULL PAYMENT in hand and now we can say we are LAND OWNERS !

PRAISE THE LORD !

This was kept very secret and as a surprise for our team so if you’d like to see the “ big reveal” watch the video ;)

Delivery Vehicle April 2021

Our military truck was worked on by a Haitian mechanic that installed a part wrong and did quite a bit of damage to the engine so Gods General has been out of commission for awhile. We are working on a plan now to have it fixed but in Haiti everything takes much longer to do.

In the meantime we had no vehicle to get around in and it costs $150 a day to rent a truck in the countryside ! Yes you saw that right a staggering $150 US DOLLARS a day. We needed reliable transportation not only for teams but as fruit and vegetable delivery to the restaurants and markets our Psalm139LOVE team are selling to.

Again God opened the door and a missionary friend of ours messaged me and felt lead to offer for us to buy his Toyota 4 runner that he wasn’t using. It was in fabulous condition and many other missionaries had asked to buy it but felt lead by God to only offer it to us.

We are now the proud owners of the beautiful vehicle which has already been coming in very handy for the work of the Lord.

Again this was a surprise I held off on telling the guys till just about the last day stating we were “ borrowing “ the truck. Want to see the surprise? The guys were super excited to have this blessing!

Food Baskets February 2021

Food Baskets are an ongoing project that is truly needed especially in our area where we serve. Their is currently another gas crisis and regular gas was selling for $11 a gallon U.S. money 😡 you read that right ELEVEN dollars a gallon which would have us here in America outraged. We know what higher gas prices can do , now think about in Haiti where most of the food is imported from the Dominican Republic. The higher gas prices affects everything from household items, tools, basically everything they use and especially food. Many who were already struggling to just eat one meal a day are going without anything to eat a few days at a time and even worse some of these are children. In Haiti there aren’t any food banks , government help or safety nets for those in need.

 Madame clini - her husband was murdered and she has 3 children to feed

Angeline- she has six children and her husband abandoned her while she had a baby that was still breastfeeding.

Samanta- she has 3 children and like Angeline her husband abandoned her as well.

These are 3 families that we have helped numerous times because they are in great need. This was actually the first time I saw Samanta smile in a picture and through your giving these ladies can see firsthand the love of Jesus.

Food Delivery Truck Need February 2021

Our team has already been able to sell our crops of sweet peppers 🫑 and tomatoes 🍅 to some of the local restaurants! We are so excited because God has given us the vision for our ATC to be a business and it’s happening ! This provides additional income for our team as well as providing vegetables and fruits locally making the village more independent and not reliant on shipments coming in from the Dominican Republic.

All of this being said we are now in need of a delivery vehicle to take our produce to restaurants and markets as we do not know what’s going to happen with the military truck. This will also be of great use to smaller teams and to have in case of Gods General breaking down. The option of renting a car is not economical as it costs $150 a day plus paying a driver and additional $40 as well as gas which ends up being $200 a day! The guys have been using the two motorcycles but it’s not really feasible or professional as they load the veggies in a plastic bin and bungee cord it to racks on the back of their bikes.

The most excellent news is that our friend, a fellow missionary who has a compound close to ours literally offered to sell his 2nd vehicle to us for just $3,000! It’s a fully functioning Toyota 4 Runner which can not only handle the roads but is also a very easy vehicle to buy parts for and maintain in country. If anything goes wrong with our military truck we have to ship the parts in which can be very challenging. This Toyota 4 runner will be a real blessing!
