Food Update…

We are making great progress on food distribution in Haiti! To date, we have spent $69,080 of the $88,892 that was donated for food in Haiti.

Last Friday, we had our 4th food distribution in Thoman. 375 families received rice, beans, and oil. We’ve also completed 3 large distributions in Galette Chambon.

That’s Kenterson with the mask on last Friday helping with the most recent food distribution in Thoman. He and Pastor Mathurin have done an amazing job helping thousands of hungry Haitians get food for their families.

More Houses

Last month I shared how a group from Decatur, MS provided the funds for a new house in Thoman, Haiti. That house has now been built!

This is the family that was to receive the new house. The husband is Ilrick and the wife is Rachelle. This is the house they were living in. It had belonged to Ilrick’s grandparents.

This is the new house!

This little Haitian girl is named Modelaine. She attends one of our schools in Galette Chambon. That’s her sponsor in the photo with her. I am thrilled to report that thanks to a generous donor who gave $5,885 Modelaine and her family will be getting a new house this month!

This is the mud and stick house where Modelaine and her family currently live. Soon, they’ll have a brand new block house with a porch, two rooms, windows, and two doors to lock at night. Praise God!


We recently painted our new elementary school in Galette Chambon. This school was built last summer. It now has a fresh coat of paint and is ready for the children to return in August. Not only does the school look much better, but the painting project provided much needed jobs for numerous Haitians.

Jobs in the Delta

In Jonestown, MS we have helped Cassie Galmore form a new company called The Galmore Group. Her main client is Capital Bolt & Screw in Ridgeland, MS. They needed to outsource part of their work for many of their customers. Starting last July, Cassie began doing the work in Jonestown.

As soon as we complete construction of our new 4,000 sq. ft. Economic Development Center in Jonestown in a couple of months, The Galmore Group will be our anchor business. We also hope to attract already existing businesses as well as help other entrepreneurs in Jonestown develop their own businesses.

We had a great meeting two weeks ago at the Capital Bolt & Screw headquarters. That’s Cassie in the blue shirt. Her daughter, Lillian, is sitting across from her in the gold shirt. Lillian is a recent graduate of Delta State University and will be helping Cassie with her new business.

The man on the left is Brian Gibson. He and his dad, Jerry, are the owners of Capital Bolt & Screw. In their conference room two weeks ago, Brian led a discussion about upcoming work needs, space allocation in the new Economic Development Center, and how The Galmore Group should probably hire at least two new employees.

Cassie and Lillian received a tour of the warehouse to see how a warehouse should properly function.

July 30, 2020

Last year we had our first annual Food for Life event in which we raised over $160,000 to fund our Inpatient Malnutrition Center in Haiti. This year, we had planned the event for May 7. However, due to the coronavirus, we had to reschedule the event.

The new date is July 30, but here’s the catch: we don’t want you to come. That’s right, we want you to stay home! Our event is going to be a Virtual Event which you can watch from the comfort of your own home. All the singers and speakers will be on the platform at Broadmoor Baptist Church but no one will be in the audience. The audience will be online!

The proceeds this year will go for two things in Haiti and one thing in the Mississippi Delta. In Haiti, the proceeds will go for our medical clinics and our newly strengthened outpatient Malnutrition Program. In the Delta, the proceeds will go for our brand new After School program for children.

Here are the details:

  • What: 2nd annual Food for Life event
  • When: July 30, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.
  • Where: Facebook Live on the But God Ministries page and Stan Buckley’s page
  • Why: Food and medical care in Haiti, education in the Miss. Delta
We will also have the online auction like we did last year. It will be available beginning July 23. You can preview all the great items HERE.
Last year, we had raised over half the funds prior to the event. If you want to give early toward this event and help with food and education, you can click HERE.


As you know, all of this work takes a great deal of resources. If you are in a position to give, you can give a gift online HERE or send a check to: But God Ministries, 404 Fontaine Place, Suite 104, Ridgeland, MS, 39157.

In addition, I ask for your prayers for wisdom and energy for our Haitian staff, our Delta staff, our American staff in Haiti and the U.S., and our Board of Directors.

Can’t Wait To See What God Does Next,

Stan Buckley
Executive Director
