Benevolence Projects

~ Homes for Widows and Orphans ~

Our primary partners
Love Mercy
led by

Noel & Mieke Alexander

We have been close personal friends with Noel & Mieke Alexander for almost 40 years.  Their lifestyle and impeccable integrity is worthy of emulation.  For the last few decades their ministry Love Mercy, has been primarily involved in Kenya, Africa.  Primary objectives:

  1. drill water wells

  2. build community centers

  3. evangelism

  4. build churches

  5. train and set-in local spiritual leadership

As the churches are established, the commitment to care for the ever-present poor becomes an integral part of the ministry.

DPM/ALC's involvement with Love Mercy has been focused on building widows' houses, because we believe this is dear to our Father's heart.  James 1:27 expresses it well, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress...".  

For a surprisingly small contribution of approximately $800, a 3 room home can be built.  One hundred percent of contributions that are labeled to this end, goes directly to the widows' homes.  That's unusual and noteworthy.

We're all bombarded with never-ending requests from ministries asking for our contributions.  And truthfully, every giver must find the benevolence focus that works best for them.  But here's what I look for when I 'open my hand'...


  1. Integrity of the mission  and benevolence organization

  2. A low administration overhead / money goes directly to the project

  3. Integrity of the local overseers

  4. A Christian church-family to nurture the widows

  5. Heavenly favor that follows when we're in sync with Heaven's design

We can attest that the above indicators are overtly present as we partner with Love Mercy and these dear widows and orphans.  Here are a few of the homes we've built.  

Widow Beatrice before

Widow Beatrice - in progress

This widow’s name is Beatrice.  The existing house you see leaked very badly.  It will be demolished and a new mud structure built.  Built properly, it will last 40 years.

Widow Akumu almost finished

Widow Akumu and children and pastor

Widow Akumu’s house is finished with the first and second mudding.  We purchased a bed, mattress, blanket and some chairs for her.  We also gave her some capital to start a small business for her to feed her children.  She is very thankful and happy for what the Lord Almighty has done for her.

From local overseer pastor:

"Widow Emmah's house got finished and she already moved in.   The area chief in busia got so impressed by the new house that he paid for the flooring and put in the glass windows.  We also gave her some money to start a small business for a living.  She is now the happiest lady on earth.  She is very thankful.  May you live 1000 years.  May YHVH bless you 100 billion times.  Much blessings, grace and favor to you"

"Peninah has told me to tell you  "thank you thank you very much for building her a house." Our Lord bless you forever. You have saved her from shame. Also the church says thank you. I and Sarah also say thank you. The Lord bless you 100 billion times."

Widow Florence before

Widow Florence - in progress

From local overseer pastor
"Florence lives in a one room ‘house’ that is about to fall over.  She and eleven others share this 10 x 12 feet shack.   She and her family are destitute.   We will build her a three room house that is approximately 15’ x 36’."

From Noel & Mieke 
"This is Florence with her house.  This project was formidable, as all the mud had to be transported from the foot of the mountain." 

Widow Florah 1_edited.jpg

Widow Florah - finished

From local overseer pastor
Mark, this is Widow Florah's house built with your help... Thank you and all donors.  W
idow Florah has told us to tell you, "THANK YOU THANK YOU very much for the house.  May the Lord bless you forever."  She is now the happiest widow on earth.  Amen.

Widow Rose Anyango - home construction is currently in progress

From local overseer pastor
There is a widow at Lovemercy Butula church who urgently needs a house.  Her name is Rose Anyango.  She has 6 children.  She used to live with her husband at Butula market in a rental house.  But when her husband died 3 months ago, she was kicked out and she has nowhere to live.  We pray that the Lord touch your heart to build her a house in a plot that one of the elders of the church has donated for her in Butula Busia.  Amen.

Waiting for her home

Widow Sofina before

This widow’s name is Sofina Agiza aged 71 years old.  She has 3 sons whom she has not seen in the last 12 years since her husband died.  She has no toilet and her current structure was failing and had a partly blown off roof.
