Agriculture

This is one of our 3 main areas of emphasis. The most recent project we built an Agricultural Training Center which started in January 2018. This training center has had a well drilled that is solar-powered with a tower that was built to hold 600 and 200-gallon water tanks that are hooked up to a farm grade irrigation system. Also installed was a hoop greenhouse, a shade house, a goat farm, chicken coop and we just started with rabbits. There have been 2 seminars help there since it started that have provided knowledge as well as supplies such as seeds and drip irrigation kits to these well-attended events. What was recently barren land is now a flourishing garden and it is our vision to duplicate this in other villages. A big thank  you goes out to Pastor Danny Hodges of Calvary Chapel Fellowship & Paul Maggard of Ragged Edge Ministries for the well.

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.

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. 

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

 2018 - NEW COMMUNITY GARDEN IN PIGNON

Psalm 139Love has 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 ❤️! He has allowed ten families to have a Chapin Living Waters drip irrigation garden in his backyard. He knows the struggle of his people and in this video he explains that he has seen these systems before and wanted to find them..PRAISE THE LORD... along comes Borgella Jodelin and Brunot Jean ( 2 of our full time employees) and offers them to Fednet and along with Jocelyn Azeme, they've built 10 already!


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!

 Garden Work 

The New Cercady Garden

With the generous donation of a portable irrigation pump and hose from a special friend and Hope Seeds, we will be starting 3 huge

 new gardens in the village of Cercady.

In exchange we will own part of the land to have a nursery plus part of proceeds from the crops will go back into the ministry to help feed the orphans we are looking after.  

The Future Cayhonde Gardens

Psalm139LOVE is all about giving the Haitians a hand up and not just a handout. We work on projects that make them self sustaining like growing their own vegetables.

We partnered with Chapin Living Waters and Hope seeds for the drip kits and seeds. Each person that attended the seminar received their own bucket drip kit and seeds needs for a great garden. 

We will monitor the activity in the gardens and supply them with future help if needed.

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

Thanks to the generous donation of pumps and pipes. 

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 blessed 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.  

GRAS LI GARDEN GETS A SHADE HOUSE

Psalm 139Love was 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've built eight 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.
