Shade cloth at the new ATC Septem​ber 2020

This video is probably my fave!!

It shows a panoramic view and a PHOTO of most of the property!!! The land God had blessed us with us truly BREATHTAKING!

This combines yesterday’s and today’s pictures of it being installed.

So many came by just to help without getting paid simply because they love Psalm139LOVE and our team are friends of theirs.

Seriously so many are joining in because they see this as a huge blessing for the entire community. As we move forward there are many more projects we need funded to make this a success. If you’d like to be a part of it you can become a MONTHLY PARTNER because doin our payments will become due ( we put a down payment on it) or you can donate to a general fund which will support future projects.  We welcome and appreciate ALL donations Psalm139LOVE.com OR

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.

 

OLDABERT VALCOURT received his food basket 🧺 with so much joy!! September 2020

Oldabert is a blind widow who has no relatives to help him- a wonderful family has taken him into their home and I finally was able to meet them. What wonderful generous hearts they have to have taken him in. They explained even though they don’t have much they are willing to share. I then saw them at church on Sunday and it was such a blessing ❤️ We have a generous donor who makes sure he gets good every month which in turn blesses this family.

THERE ARE SO MANY IN NEED OF FOOD ;(

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.

Amanda's Birthday Fundraiser

MY BIRTHDAY IS SEPTEMBER 9!

I was called to be a missionary when I was 5 1/2 - I always estimated I was nine because I heard the call the moment I accepted Je​sus as my Lord and Savior. I heard clearly in my spirit I CALLED YOU TO BE A MISSIONARY❤️ Imagine my surprise when I found my baby book a few weeks ago and saw I accepted Jesus into my heart April 9, 1975. I was actually much younger then I estimated! Haiti is my passion and the past four years I have NEVER taken a salary- in fact none of our board has. We do this because we love what God has called us to do!  We welcome and appreciate ALL donations which will go towards freight, solar panels, the truck, tools and in Haiti unexpected emergencies always happen. See video for details.

$2,000 is our goal! Josh Leventhal and I leave September 8.

     CALVARY CHAPEL PARTNERSHIP         July 2020

Today was EXTREMELY special as our

Pastor Danny Hodges announced that we are now a monthly Calvary Chapel Church affiliated mission and will be supported by a  monthly partnership as well as start taking teams down to Haiti!

This is a huge blessing as we have been pretty much supported through our facebook videos and private donors. The church has helped finance wells in the past but they are now truly invested in us as Pastor Danny told me this morning.

I gave him the beautiful painting and he LOVED it! Specially since he’s big into boating and fishing 🎣;)

We would welcome anyone who want to support us Monthly because up till now all monthly support goes into salaries for our team in Haiti ,Internet at our house in there, website etc. however there are extra expenses like fixing the motorcycles and our truck, insurance on the vehicles and things that pop up that are not covered.

Paul Pecott Josh Leventhal and I do not take a salary at all. Your added support would be a blessing for these extra expenses as well as help fund our future trips down.

I’ll be heading back September 8 and am so excited to see how God is going to move.

We have a HUGE donation of solar audio bibles we will be taking and our focus will be evangelism for adults and working at the ATC.

Part 2 of ATC Project-  Funding the well July 2020

Josh and I were in Haiti in January and went to look at the beautiful piece of land you see in this video. God has given Psalm139LOVE the vision and mandate to build our 2nd Agricultural Training Center. You can be a part of this life giving project by going to Psalm139LOVE.com and donating towards the much needed solar powered well that needs to be drilled. Once the well is finished, the next pahse will be the funding  toward the well cover and water tower we will need. Please consider becoming a monthly partner to help make payments on the balance of the land for complete purchase or either of the last two phases of this important project. Since the video was filmed ( January 2020) we have given the down payment and the deed is in our name. Also we are almost halfway done with Phase 2. No amount is too small and we believe we are #STRONGERTOGETHER if everyone joins in the vision will become reality✅

Tin Roof #54 June 2020

Fetiere aka “ CHOPS” is a close friend of Psalm139LOVE and is the boss carpenter we hire to put on all the tin roofs we raise money for.

He asked us for help to provide one for his family as it was raining inside, because the tin roof was old and rusted with holes in it, getting his family and everything inside wet.

He supplied all the wood which we really appreciated because it showed he was willing to do what he could to help.

The shoe Psalm139LOVE team decides to put their own “ skin in the game” and volunteer to help for the five days it took to replace it.

You can see the before and after pictures plus in the video Mrs “ CHOPS” is dancing 💃 for joy! So cute!

In the other video Chops and his wife give God thanks and let us know how this provision will change their life.

May it bring it smile to your face like it did ours! 

Food Baskets & Other Blessings March-May 2020

Even though we’ve been hit with the corona virus on a global level that has not stopped Psalm139LOVE from still operating and blessing those who are in real need of assistance especially now.

A food crisis has truly set in, more then ever, during the lockdown Haiti is going through. Unlike our government here in the states they have no safety net, no unemployment money, no food banks, and no stimulus to help see them through. Add the fact that a lot of the food is imported from the Dominican Republic, the borders have been shut, inflation is skyrocketing and they are going to be facing major food insecurity.

We have given out over 35 food baskets, provided 5 mattresses and 3 bed frames , as well as starting to build 8 personal gardens for families and getting our land ready to plow to build our 2nd Agricultural Training Center. Thank you Jesus!

We were also able to provide the money to fix our dear friend, Pastor Dabou’s motorcycle, so he can go out and share his testimony. He is a former witch doctor and his testimony is powerful and he has been asked quite a bit to come preach at various church’s, but couldn’t go because he needed new tires and a few things fixed on his motorcycle.

Thank you for your support because without you many of these people would simply not eat

Haiti's Economy and our 2nd ATC Project 2020

Listed below are just a few of the reasons why our 2nd agricultural training center project is so important in Haiti. Our goal from a Biblical perspective is to teach a man how to fish. By teaching them through gardening and seminars to take care of themselves we will be doing just that. You can see by the stats below why we concentrate on food and water/wells in our rural area. To totally fund the remainder of this most important phase 1 of the project (buy land) is $7,500. We have done this before and the land we are looking at is in an area near a college that teaches agronomy with nowhere to practically apply the skills they are learning. Our agronomists that we employ are in their last year of schooling there so it's a perfect fit.  Any amount you can send is a great help to this project, just put land in the notes. If you know of anyone else that would be interested in helping with this project including churches, corporations or other philanthropic organizations please let us know. Thank you for your support.

Featured Story of the Week

MADAME MISILIA GETS A FOOD BASKET AND KITCHEN ITEMS! 

​This is one of the sweetest women I know and I adore her! See her joy when she finds out we came to visit and share with her much-needed items.

Thank you to her special donor who has provided quite a few times for her already.

With no government or family to fall back on many widows rely on the kindness of neighbors or simply don’t eat. She lives about 30 minutes by motorcycle to the market that’s only open on Mondays so how is she to take care of herself?

YOU can be the hands and feet of Jesus!

PSALM139LOVE.com FOOD BASKETS 

December 2019

Great news! The goat farm at the Agricultural Training Center is beginning to have babies. We purchased 12 goats to get started 2 each for the gentleman that works for us, all females, and one male goat as they are much more expensive.  Our first additions were the twins Jacob and Esau. The beauty is that they are both male goats.

This little guy is our latest addition. Look at those unique markings that he has looking very cool indeed. He has been aptly named Patches and continues the blessings of male goats joining our goat farm. We pray that the blessings keep coming.

Missionary Flights International Spends a day with Psalm 139 Love

Back in July my husband Paul, our board member Josh and I traveled to Haiti for a week. We were asked by

John Lain of #missionaryflightsinternational to spend the day with us on Sunday and he filmed us the whole day.

He said that out of all the things that stood out it was about personal relationships with those in our community.

He said he could have gone about 5-6 different ways with our ministry because we were involved in so many projects however we stand in the gap where most big ministries simply cannot. That is having close relationships with so many people- ever since I first went in 2008 I fell in love with the country and the people there and MANY are out close friends and have been since that first trip over 11 years ago,

Former voodoo witchdoctor Nelson gets a motorcycle to evangelize.

We brought Nelson,  who is a formerly one of the most powerful witchdoctors in all of Haiti, to the motorcycle shop for what he thought was a video to try and raise funds to get the one of his choice to evangelize. He has a true Saul to Paul story that needs to be heard and he gets many requests to speak. To his surprise, he was given the keys right there to make this come true. In what was truly a God divine appointment, Psalm 139 Love was put in touch with the charity that made it happen. We would like to thank Mr. Arlen King @ Missionary Ventures for making this dream become a reality for Nelson. Before Amanda and the team had even left the country from their October 2019 visit, Nelson stopped by the house to say that he already had 2 speaking engagements to evangelize in other areas. Thanks again to the motorcycle division at Missionary Ventures for all their help with funding this project.

BOUEKERONNE WELL VISIT #6!

A huge THANK YOU to Paul Pecott and my home church Calvary Chapel Fellowship Pastor Danny Hodges his wife Wendy and the kids at VBS. Our church adopted Psalm139LOVE for VBS and offered a matching donation to challenge the children to raise money to fix this well and it also raised awareness as to the condition of so many who don’t have clean drinking water.

This well was broken FOUR YEARS causing those in the community to walk over an hour just to get dirty water to drink. There is no running water in the areas Psalm139LOVE serves. We have an amazing friend and we’ll digger/fixer-upper named Deribert Etienne. Most wells average around $2,000 to be fixed. Maybe a bit more at this time as gas is about $10 US a gallon which increases the prices of everything.

Message me, Josh Leventhal, Paul Pecott or Gail Bain

if you have any questions. Winnie Saringo Ashwood Jeanne Barr and Angela K Priest and my team went out to see it firsthand. What a lovely 😊 sight to see people getting the water they need!

Agricultural Training Seminar

Our 2nd annual PSALM 139 LOVE ATC seminar was a huge success and we have had MANY of the agronomists messaging me and the guys to let us know how much they learned and how grateful they were.

Our speakers were really insightful Fednet Louis, Jocelyn Azeme, Samuel and Josias J. Romeus of Hope Seeds from Gonaives. Hope Seeds we couldn’t be more grateful for your partnership with us and in donating sooo many valuable seeds that are “teaching a man to fish” or to garden in this example. I explained that each would only get one packet of seeds however if they send pictures of them using the seeds we can give them more.

The Mayor of Pignon, Nicholas Victorin (in the video speaking ). stopped by to visit and shared how valuable the ministry of  Psalm139LOVE was to his area. He is a personal friend of ours and shares his wisdom and insight  with us often.

Upon graduation, each attendant of the seminar got a Hope seeds bag ( thank you David-Maxine Balsbaugh) a family packet of seeds and a certificate. It was like a graduation ceremony! Really a lot of fun calling each up to receive it.

In Haiti, many can’t afford to go to school so a certificate is very valuable and extremely important while going on a job interview.

Winnie Saringo Ashwood and Jeanne Barr packed the bags up and Gail Bain wrote out the certificates with her beautiful handwriting. Borgella Jodelin Brunot Jean Augustave Anson Frednel D. Antoine Donacien Azelin, Barnabas Formilus and Pastor Erivu all worked on many aspects as well as Bisson. #Psalm139LOVE #HopeSeeds #agriculture #missions #missionarygirl

MEET DAVID YURMAN!

Our new male stud goat 🐐 ( kibrit )for our goat farm.

We drive over to Many hands for Hait which is close by as Fednet Louis has been discussing with Claudin which one to buy.

Paul Pecott Josh Leventhal and I met

Darryl DeRuiter, his wife Shelly DeRuiteras as well as Liz Clarke who works there full time on our last trip.

Winnie Saringo Ashwood is our “goat 🐐whisperer”

and has raised funds for many goats in the past and this trip. She names each one and this is dedicated to those who work with her at David YURMAN in Florida.

We bought 12 female goats and the guys will be selling the milk and breeding the goats which will bring in income. Much like starting a small business. 

Meet Josh Leventhal & Anson Augustave

Psalm139LOVE has been truly blessed by these two men, Josh and Anson , by joining our team! God must really like us to bring these two awesome men to work with us in so many capacities because our ministry would not be the same without them. Both of these godly men are now on our board and are an invaluable part of our lives as well as the ministry.

Gadiram well fixed #5!

 Isaiah 41:

17 "The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the LORD will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them. 18 I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs.

This was a prophecy given to me on my last trip to Haiti in October 2019. This was after our 6th well was fixed and is very fitting for a huge part of what Psalm139LOVE is about.

Gadiram and been without water a very long time and the children and adults were forced to go seek water from the holes in the ground you see in the pictures below. The water was contaminated, it is also where the animals drank from and made them very sick. Most Haitians have very little money to even eat so they can’t afford a doctor.

 Water is life and needed for every aspect of their lives from cooking, cleaning dishes, washing clothes, taking showers etc..  they do not have the luxury of turning on the tap to get a glass of water or going to a real shower as we in America do. When a well breaks down the ENTIRE COMMUNITY suffers but you can make a difference! For an average of $2,200 most wells that are broken can be fixed!

Agricultural Training Center/Well Update

Paul was spending a lot of time in prayer/meditation during the summer of 2018 before the August 2018 trip. We were about to build 2 homes and had no experience in this area and he was looking for some guidance. During one of these prayer times, he received a download from God saying we were to build an agricultural training center. We were to then duplicate this in multiple areas. What Paul did not know was that Rad Hazelip from Love A Child had said to Amanda a year earlier that we would be building an ATC. That was a confirmation for sure, but it was not the end of the story. During the trip, we visited Fednet Louis's family for the first time and Paul instantly knew this was the property for the initial ATC.  It was barren land missing one important thing - WATER.  

Big thanks to Paul Maggard @ Ragged Edge Ministries along with Pastor Danny & Wendy Hodges @ Calvary Chapel Fellowship for donations to supply all things needed for the well project. Here is an update from only 7 months after the well was drilled and less than a year after first setting foot on the barren land.

The Well @ Rozo fixed #4!

​ 

The well at Rozo had been broken for quite some time and these pictures of these precious children broke our heart seeing where they had to get water from. Painfully this is the case for many children and adults because nobody in our area has running water and all rely on local wells to be able to get fresh water. However many wells have simply broken down and the government does not fix them so many are forded yo walk sometimes one hour to get contaminated water that they need to drink, wash dishes, cook with and take baths with.

We were blessed to actually meet the children in these pictures and pump the well with them and see fresh clear water pouring out!

This was our 4th well we had fixed and Praise God at this present time of December 2019 we have fixed 6. The average cost is between $2,000 to $2,500 depends on what is wrong and the cost of parts to fix it at the current time and price of gas. The country has been in chaos recently and gas has hit as high as $12 a gallon US! So this effects everything. 

JANUARY 2019

2019 - Amanda meets the Mayor of Pignon Nicholas Victorin

The mayor of Pignon stopped by to meet me and see all that was being done at the Future Agricultural Training Center in his city, Pignon. 

 Rad Hazelip from Love-A- Child connected us a few months back and

 he’s been very helpful in getting the contract on our new well completed. It was great to finally meet him face to face and spend some time with him plus get his blessing in the project!  Want to donate our partner with our ministry? Go to Psalm139LOVE.com/donate


2019 - Psalm139LOVE Guesthouse 2019

We have almost completed the guesthouse which will be for our ministry  teams we bring to Haiti plus for other ministries and missionaries that will be working with us on different projects. This has been a total transformation to this home. If you plan on coming with me in a trip this is where you’ll be staying! We could use donations for a double bed, mattresses, WiFi and various smaller needs like rugs and pillows. If you’d like to help us finish this much needed project go to Psalm139LOVE.com and put MISSION HOME in the memo. 

2019 - Spotlight on Jocelyn "Diggy"

Psalm139LOVE along with our monthly partners is able to employ six people which is such a blessing with a country of an unemployment rate of about 80%. Jocelyn is one of our agronomists who works not only in GRAS LI Gardens but with our other gardens in Cercade and Pignon. He recently wedded a wonderful woman named Ludmie.  We're excited to have you get to know Diggy a bit in this short introduction video.


2019 - Spotlight on Fednet Louis

Fednet Louis is a Godly young man with a big heart. We employ him through the  ministry Psalm139LOVE. He has opened up his property to us and we are working alongside him to build an Agricultural Training Center in Pignon where he lives. So far we have had a well drilled there, a shade house built, a fruit tree nursery has been built, he has a papaya garden, and 12 kids have gardens in the back that they tend to on a daily basis. He teaches 200-250 children about Jesus every Saturday and this children have been active helping him in any way needed. If you want to partner with our ministry, you can do so by donations one time or becoming a monthly partner. It’s with our Monthly Partnership that we are able to hire six people and would love to employ even more hard working men and women .

Pastor Arias gets a new house

In August 2018 we were blessed with a generous donation that allowed us to build not one but two houses! We received a BOGO from Els Vervloet of Maxima SA housing After we showed her a video of the shock that Pastor had been living in since his childhood. He lives with seven other family members in a house that was over 60 years old and was run down and dilapidated. In fact, the wood was so soft and brought it that we couldn’t even put a new 10 roof on because it’s simply couldn’t support it. In Monac we drilled a new well, built a Cooking Center, started a big garden, provided about 3010 rules for those in the area as well as over 50 scholarships for children to go to school. The last big project we have prayed for was a new house for him but it was even better that we both too. He lives with his wife, mom, and adopted daughter in this house and his son and his growing family were blessed with the house of their own across the way.

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. 

 I will praise You; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are Your works; and that my soul knows right well. 

How precious also are Your thoughts unto me, 

O God! how great is the sum of them!
