UPDATE 3/16
The final phase is in full swing, we hit a little bump in the road but God is good!!!!


UPDATE 3/6/19
     Due to the civil unrest in Haiti our project has been delayed but is still making progress. Please pray for peace to come to Haiti and Gods will be done in dealing with the leadership there. In its travel advisory, the State Department urged American citizens not to travel to Haiti due to crime and civil unrest.
This unrest has forced the cancelation of the Good Shepard Presbyterian Church Team to Feed My Sheep in February and jeopardizes the plans of more.
There is a team from New Jersey scheduled to leave in mid April-needless to say it is on hold.
     We are still working on details of a temporary wall and the possibility of the Garden block making business. Please pray for clear vision of what God would have us do.
Thank you God for your provision and guidance.
The painting has begun.

UPDATE 2/3/19
We returned from our trip and we are very satisfied with progress. The final touches are being done and we are hoping for completion later this month.
    The project came in $10000 over budget. Cement cost increased by $1 a bag during the job. I reviewed with Wilford the contractor and checked other sources and it all checked out. As many of us know as in any large construction jobs this could happen.
    There is also a need for a barrier of protection around the building. It will be needed before the children can move in . Eventually it will be cement block-but we are looking into a temporary solution. Lord please guide us to the best solution for this.
    During the board meeting the board  felt that a great way to move towards the Garden becoming self sufficient would be to start a business. Concrete block makers-this would be good for several reasons. Richard and I both thought this is a great idea and this is what Feed My Sheep is all about; "empowering the Haitian people".
1. Make  the Garden self sufficient.
2. Provide block for needed wall on site.
3. Teach older children about business.
4. Employ the older children.
    Please pray for guidance and for Gods blessing to continue on the final steps in this faith building journey. Lord please give us wisdom as we look into assisting the Garden in being self sufficient moving forward. 

Meeting with Wilford the contractor and Junior.


Working on final details.


Board meeting

UPDATE 1/15/19
The final phase is moving right along. We will be in Haiti next week to encourage and pray with leaders.We will also thank God for all he has done through this project. 


UPDATE 1/3/19
The deposit money for phase 4 is in Haiti and the final phase is in full swing. Lord please use this money for your purpose. May this year bring us closer to you and your will be done in us. 

UPDATE 12/22
I am amazed at the amount of work accomplished by this group-it is truly a team effort. God please bless the builders. We are preparing for our upcoming trip a month from today-Lord give us wisdom and courage to fulfill your will in all we do- may we filter all our thoughts and choices we make through your word and Holy Spirit-Amen

UPDATE 12/10
More progress on the roof-final phase in full swing.


UPDATE 12/2
The roofing continues-getting raw materials can be a challenge but it seems like we are ready to roll. A few good friends just returned from the construction site and was very pleased with progress.


UPDATE 11/15
Phase 4 has started-I am no expert in Hatian building techniques-but it looks like progress! Thank you God!

UPDATE 11/2
Another shot of the progress-one step at a time.

UPDATE 10/29
Walls complete- roof ready to go up-Lord may all that come under this roof know of your joy and peace-use us as vessels of your love. Our schedule has changed and we are going to Haiti 1/22/19. Gail, Ben and I are eagerly anticipating what God will do through us. Please pray for direction and that we stay in sync with Gods plan. 


UPDATE 10/8
Walls near complete-The Children will have a view of the ocean on one side......


and the mountain on the other.
Men hard at work-Lord bless all involved and may we live in the peace and joy you give.

UPDATE 9/27
Walls are close to completion and phase 3 is almost ready to go-My son Ben and I are planning to go to Haiti this fall to be a encouragement to all involved. There is also a team from the area going in November.
Please pray for our trips and also how God might use you to help in this project. We are thankful to all involved. Please pray for Richard and Bev from Feed My Sheep as they return to Haiti.

UPDATE 9/15

UPDATE 8/27

UPDATE 8/20
Phase 2 has started-Money is coming in as needed-Gods timing is perfect.


UPDATE 8/10
Money for Phase 2 is in Haiti and work will start on the walls in a few days.
Lord please use this money to accomplish your will-bless those that gave-the workers building in the heat of the Caribbean and the children at the Garden of Hope. This truly is Love in Action-Amen

UPDATE 8/1
Foundation Complete! Praise God

UPDATE 7/21
Yard Sale Fundraiser
We had a great day Saturday-I was very blessed to have all my children and sister in law Donna-working hard to make it a success. People donated goods and we raised $2200 in 4 hours.
God is good!
UPDATE 7/18
Steel in place.
All digging is done by hand.
This is Love in action.
Thank you to all who gave and thank you God!
Matt 7:24
Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock.
UPDATE 7/2
The construction has started-the rocky ground is being broken up to lay a strong foundation. God please break up the rocky ground of our hearts and give us your word as a strong foundation. 
Not only is God using this for the children of the Garden but there are several locals employed at the site.
God please bless the hands that are Building the Garden.






UPDATE 6/4/18
Construction Contracts signed-Wilfred the contractor plans on breaking ground the beginning of July!

UPDATE 5/21/18
The land is officially purchased by The Garden of Hope! Praise God!
It took a while but it is done.

After 3 years of traveling to Haiti on missions trips and building relationships with Feed My Sheep Ministries, Junior Belinze director of Garden of Hope and the children of Garden of Hope, we have sensed the Lords prompting to raise funds to build a new home for the children of Garden of Hope. 
We are partnering with our church Abundant Life of Seaville, NJ, Good Shepherd Church of Los Alamitos, CA, Feed My Sheep ministries of Bell, FL and hopefully you.  



Garden of Hope in Montrouis Haiti that houses close to 40 children.


Here is a typical room in the present building. Each 12x12 room sleeps 16 children


The conditions for the children are more like a prison than a home. Join us as we follow Gods calling to build a new home for the children



This 2.5 acre lot looking over the Caribbean Sea is the future home for the children of Garden of Hope.

The new building will be close to 3000 sq feet with 4 bathrooms. The land enables them to grow their own vegetables and raise livestock.
Join us as we build a future for the children of the Garden of Hope.
