2018 - GRAS LI GARDEN GETS A SHADE HOUSE

Psalm139LOVE and Haitian Hope were very blessed to have Ron Lusk and Ben Fry from SUSTAINABLE FOOD PRODUCTION on our recent trip to Haiti. They were referred to me from Rad Hazelip of Love-a-Child where they have built 8 shade houses. In this video Ron Lusk talks about all the benefits the shade house will provide. Thank you God for such a wonderful blessing.

2018- SHADE HOUSE DEDICATION PRAYER & PRAISE

Psalm139LOVE mission team, Haitian Hope team, Ron Lusk and Ben Fry from SUSTAINABLE FOOD PRODUCTION, John Draxton and more all gathered together at the completion of the Shade House to dedicate it to The Lord and sing a song of praise.

2018 - TWO MORE SOULS SAVED

When Team Member Cindy Lancaster and I went on a prayer walk with Pastor Arias,  we stopped by a house to visit. I asked this precious man (husband/father) where he would go when he died and he said he didn’t know. I explained the plan of Salvation to him and how Jesus died on the cross for His sins and it was a free gift but he had to invite Jesus into his heart. Both he and the young man said they were ready. They had smiles in their face. This is what missions is truly about!

2018 -  PROVIDING FOR LOULOUSE

Psalm 139LOVE  and Haitian Hope have been able to raise $230 for this precious woman who just had twins. She has two other children as well and was recently abandoned by her husband in the middle of the night never to return. Thanks to the generous donations that we  were able to  buy all the items you see in the video plus we have saved some in an account for her for next month food allotment and money in case she needs to take the twins to the doctor. Praise God we were also able to provide her with a tin roof. Please pray for LouLouse.

2018 - GEMEL'S BAKERY

When in Haiti, we love to treat the children to one of their favorite things...a simple peanut butter sandwich! But no store bought bread here. We support the local bakery. Come take a look inside at the HOMEMADE BREAD!! 

2018 - TAKING A RIDE IN "BIG RED FOR GOD"

We've been blessed with an awesome donation of a three-wheel motorcyle "cart" which has been a tremendous help to our Haitian employees who take care of the community garden, the widows gardens, to pick up and deliver tin for roofs, and also to be use to take the sick to the nearest hospital which is hours away by foot.  

 2018 - VERONIQUE RECEIVES SOLAR AUDIO BIBLE

While out on a prayer walk in Monac, I met Veronique, who lives in a small one room home with a few children. Her husband, Gustav, and her moved to this area after the earthquake destroyed their home in 2010. Unfortunately there is no work for him in this area. He is in Port Au Prince trying to work to provide for his family but has since burned his arm and can’t work. I know she must spend a lot of lonely nights. I pray this brings her comfort. And we pray her husband can find employment. The unemployment rate is so extremely high in Haiti. So many families in need. Please help us to help them! 

2018 -NEW COMMUNITY GARDEN IN PIGNON

Psalm 139LOVE & Haitian Hope have expanded into a new village!!

We have Fednet Louis to thank for this! Fednet is an Agriculture student with a BIG plot of land and an even BIGGER heart!


He has allowed ten families to have a Chapin Living Waters drip irrigation garden in his backyard. He knows the struggle of his people. In this video, he explains that he's heard about these systems and wanted to find them. Praise The Lord ....here comes along  Borgella ,Jodelin and Brunot Jean

 ( 2 of our full time employees) and offers them to Fednet and along with Jocelyn Azeme, they've already built 10!


Thank you Doug Carlson and Bethany from Hope Seeds for supplying the needs to this community . Even better..see all the barren land in the picture behind Fednet? It’s all his property and he is allowing us to build more gardens for even more families! I brought 20 drip tape kits with me that will go up there. He then took us next door to his nursery where he also has a compost station.Thank you Fednet for your love ,compassion , and willingness to share with the community! 

 2018 - PASTOR ARIAS RECEIVES HAITIAN GOSPEL TRACS

Thank you to World Missionary Press for your generous donation of gospel tracts in Creole for Psalm139LOVE recent mission trip to Haiti.

These are invaluable tools in getting the good news of the

 gospel of Jesus out to so many..especially those entrenched in voodoo.

2018- CERCADY GARDEN UPDATE...WOW

Last August (2017) when we went down to Haiti, we brought everything needed to set Tira and his family up with a portable irrigation system for his property. In Haiti, farming is very hard because there is only one rainy season a year which means one crop per year however; with a portable irrigation pump water is rerouted from the river so now he can have four crops per year!! Which means more food to sell for the community at the market, food for his family and also income coming in so his children can go to school. Hope seeds supplied all of the seeds we gave him and as you can see in the video his garden is blooming!



 2017 - PASTOR ARIAS NEEDS A NEW HOUSE

Pastor Arias is a humbles dedicated man of God who lives with 8 other people (one an orphan they took in when her mom died in childbirth) in a house that could fall apart at any moment- the wood is rotted and leaks when it rains. 

2018 - PASTOR ARIAS NEEDS A NEW HOUSE

Psalm 139LOVE recently took a trip to Monac Haiti where we originally started working in October 2015. Since we've partnered with Haitian Hope, we have been able to provide a fresh water well for the community of 1,500 and a cover for it, a beautiful garden that provides food for malnourished children as well as a cooking center. Another organization came in and built a school yet Pastor Arias a faithful man of God lives in his childhood home with 9 people and the house is about to fall apart.

Gail Bain makes an appeal for her church or others to join us and build this many of God a decent safe home which he deserves.

The approximate cost will be $8,000-$10,000.




 2018 -  A FAMILY GETS A TIN ROOF

Psalm 139LOVE would like to  thank everyone who has donated for a tin roof and praise God, we have had 25 tin roofs put up so far in the area of Monac and Cayarond Haiti. This families plight has really broke my heart because when I saw this video I see no real home, no protection at all. Wilnot told me the landlord saw that the house was crumbling and was worried it would fall on them and he would get in trouble so he had it knocked down. At least they have a tin roof but they have no other protection but the one wall on the left side and 14 people live here. We can provide homes for about $6,000 and are praying we can start to get some grant money coming in so we can provide the basic need of safe shelter. Want to know more ? Go to Psalm139LOVE.com and message me there or friend me on Facebook Amanda Backensto Pecott and “like” my Facebook page Psalm139LOVE.

2018 - PRETENDING TO COOK FOR THE WIDOWS

Psalm 139LOVE has a widows luncheon every time we go to Bohoc and sometimes throughout the year at special occasions. We usually have about 70-100 of the widows /widowers come to the Bon Samaritan church for fellowship, feasting, dancing and the gospel message .

This is a cute fun video to show you what the kitchen looks like and give you an idea of what cooking is like there as they have no electricity to be able to use a stove.



 2018 -  MAKING GREETING CARDS

We had a great time in Monac with the kids..including BIG kids who really got into painting some unique one of a kind greeting cards .

I’m always looking for new projects, that are fun, and not break the bank as I try to be a wise steward of the money that comes in for mission trips 

2018 - HOPE SEEDS FUNDRAISER FEATURING PSALM139LOVE

Hope Seeds had a fundraiser May 1, 2018 where a team of volunteers came and packed seeds that would be going out to many missionaries in the countries they serve . These seeds are used not only to be able to start gardens and feed families but to be a witness for Jesus Christ. Each package comes with a gospel tract and has a retail value of $25 . Bethany thought it would be extra special to have a Missionary at the event who could talk about how valuable the seeds are and asked me to be the featured guest.  Hope Seeds has donated 200 packets to Psalm139LOVE and Haitian Hope for a retail values of $5,000!

We love Hope Seeds and are so thankful!

Psalm139LOVE Making a Difference

Psalm139LOVE is all about making a difference in the lives of people living in very remote villages in Haiti. It is our goal to win them to Jesus and to enhance and make better living conditions for those in need. We minister to the lost, the saved, the sick, the widows, the orphans and children. If you would like to help us in our mission, we would be so grateful.

AGRICULTURE

Gras Li Garden

(His Grace Garden)

Be sure to check out all the Photos

Gras Li Garden

We were blessed to have land donated by Telius Berson in the area of Monac where the well was recently drilled. Gras Li Garden vegetables provide life giving food to the 15 malnourished children of The Gras Li feeding program . 

Gras Li Garden Fence

Time to fence around the garden to keep the critters from invading! 

Jean Jean Mompremier explains the portable irrigation system. 

Only two rainy seasons in Haiti, making growing a garden very difficult. Pumping water from the river allows a beautiful well watered garden. Families will be fed.

Thanks to the generous donation of pumps and pipes!

Gras Li Garden Gets Irrigation System 2

Pumping water from the river.

Thanks to the generous donation of pumps and pipes. 

The beginnings of Gras Li Garden

Amanda and Wilot (Haitian Hope) show you the beginnings of Gras Li Garden. God has been good and the garden has flourished.

In July 2016, Psalm 139 Love and Haitian Hope were given a plot of land in Monac, Haiti we use for a garden which grows a VARIETY of vegetables. A portion of the veggies are sold to buy rice, beans and oil while another portion is saved; However, all of it goes to feed the children of GRAS Li ( His Grace) Feeding Program for malnourished children. The garden is watered by a portable irrigation pump which re-routed the water from the river up to the garden in effect giving them four crops per year instead of just one. Without the pump, the Haitians are dependent strictly on rainfall which come only once a year. The next garden we will  be starting will be in the village of Cercady.


GARDEN AT CERCADY

Psalm 139 Love was blessed to have a donation from a special ministry partner of a wheelbarrow, portable irrigation pump, hose and the money needed for the hose that would be used to bring water to the garden up from the river. We bless Cercady with a garden.

You'll meet Brunot in the video. 

He is one of the land owners who will benefit from this pump.

In exchange, Brunot donated Psalm139LOVE with a plot of their land to have as a plant nursery to start new plants for transplanting. 


We will continue building Chapin Living Waters Drip Irrigation gardens  in other places and receive a portion of their crops as payment for the drip system. We then can help out the families of GRAS Li Feeding Program. This will also bless the families who have taken in an orphan that 

Wilnot Mercier (Haitian Hope) is looking after. 

GRAS LI GARDEN GETS A SHADE HOUSE

Psalm 139Love and Haitian Hope were very blessed to have Ron Lusk and Ben Fry from SUSTAINABLE FOOD PRODUCTION on our recent trip to Haiti. They were referred to me from Rad Hazelip of Love a Child where they have built 8 shade houses. In this video Ron Lusk talks about all the benefits the shade house will provide. Thank you God for such a wonderful blessing.

Making Life Better

(Be sure to check out all the Photos)

Cement Floors

So many home have dirt floors and palm leaf roof making their floor very muddy during the rainy season. There is a need for both...cement floors and tin for roofs. 

Tin for Roofs

Many homes have only palm leaves for their roof making it very messing when it rains. Couple that with dirt floors, it's terrible living conditions. There is a need for both...tin for roofs and cement floors. 

Making Life Better

Blessing of a Goat

Goats are very important to have in rural Haiti. The milk is excellent for babies and growing children. They can also breed the nanny's to sell the

 kids (baby goats) at the market for income for the family.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ

This is a real life Saul to Paul testimony of a former high priest voodoo witch doctor who gave his life to Jesus. This is a man who use to operate heavily under satanic power. Now he is set free and telling others of Jesus. Praise The Lord!!  Pray for the people in Haiti. 

Richard Gets a Tarp for His Roof

 and a Garden

Wilnot Mercier (Haitian Hope) introduces you to Richard. His house only had palm leaves for his roof. During the rainy season, his dirt floors become mud. Psalm139LOVE decided to tarp his roof AND plant a garden with Chapin Living Waters drip irrigation system.

Richard Gets a New Tin Roof

Psalm139LOVE (Amanda) and Haitian Hope (Wilnot) played a trick on Richard. They tarped his roof and he was happy but then this  happens. LOL He has such a sweet spirit and because of his good attitude Psalm139LOVE has hired him to work in the gardens. He now has a job to help his family!

Mirlande House Is Being Finished

Mirlande is a single mom of two precious children, Kervens and Leyla. Her house started to be built but she had no more money to finish it. She had only a  palm-leaf roof and a tarp that leaked with every rain which made for mud floors. The rainy seaon in Haiti is very hard.  

Through the sales of my Psalm 139 Love ornament and a few generous donations, we have been able to pay the men to finish her home!

She is still in need of a cement floor which is $300 ( the floor is dirt) so if you'd like to donate to this project go to psalm139love.com

And put MIRLANDES FLOOR in the memo .

Thank you to Mercier Wilnot who is my lifeline in Haiti and ministry partner for always taking videos and pictures !! We couldn't do any of this without him;)

Widow's Luncheons

Every year when we go to Haiti, we love to have a large widow's luncheon.  We feed them a hot meal of rice, chicken and veggie on hand.  Then there's time for a devotional and testifying among the widow's. And whoever has a song in their heart, sings and then there's dancing. The widow's LOVE that. Before they leave, they're  given a bag of useful gifts to take home with them. Thank you to all who give to the widows!
