DONATE NOW SECURELY THROUGH PAYPAL
Dear Prospective Donor & Partner,
The mission field is described in the Bible as a harvest waiting to happen: people are ready and waiting to be gathered into God's kingdom, and just need somebody to go out and invite them in. Jesus says “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” - Luke 10:2.
Thank you for your interest in supporting Jaime Thietten’s ministry.
God gave Jaime a true gift in her voice and the ability to sing! He has essentially called her to work the harvest fields. Throughout the past 10 years, Jaime has utilized her talents and stayed true to her mission of bringing a message of hope and forgiveness to a hurting world. She is in FULL-TIME ministry with her music and has seen evidence of God’s grace and hand upon it...
I loved your concert this evening. Your singing is always so beautiful and such an inspiration.
I especially was touched by your song, My Chance. I had tears streaming down my cheeks during this song. During your song, I was reliving my experience and my heartbreak. Thank you for your ministry. Thank you for speaking for the little ones who can’t speak from themselves. – Linda
Personally I haven't had an abortion but was faced with having to choose at the age of 17. TO THIS DAY I am so glad that I never went against God and now have a 22-year old strong, independent, self-driven young man as my first-born son. Thank you for sharing your wonderful song and voice. God has a plan for each and every one of us!! – Karen
It is so encouraging to come across an artist like Jamie who is saying something so powerful through her music. Yes, her physical voice is beautiful...but it is the unheard sound of her heart's voice that is the sweetest sound of all. – Andi
The CD was a thing of beauty, not to mention a real testimony of your faith. – Ralph
The tears you saw me wiping away were indeed real and were a result of my appreciation of your tremendous talent to sing but also the messages you are trying to deliver. You have a heart bigger than anyone I have heard sing ...simple, pure, honest and so lovely to watch. – Buford
Saw your interview this evening. Great heartfelt songs and great talent - You have made your work your prayer and touched many people along the way. Good luck and thank you! – Ellen
Your song, My Chance, was really moving to me. I can't imagine why we do not hear more songs like that. This song could make such an impact on those who have chosen abortion and those who are contemplating it. Thank you. Blessings- Larry
Your Tax-Deductable donation will go for the sole and specific use of recording new material for future albums. Running a full-time music ministry not only takes a true dedication to faith and calling but also requires financial support in order to sustain it. The costs involved are many and in order to be effective many individuals participate in the creation, recording and delivery of her music. These include songwriters, musicians, recording engineers, producers, booking agents, a manager, business manager designers, and others. In order to properly record one song, an artist will need a budget of several thousand dollars to bring that song from an idea all the way through to a CD that can be played in your living room, car or church service.
As in Luke 10:7 we see that a worker deserves his wages and therefore we ask that you would prayerfully consider donating to Jaime’s music ministry that she might be able to continue recording new songs, touching new lives and reaching out to the world. Jaime, through her music, may be the only Christian some people ever know and your support helps to change their lives.
“Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” - Matthew 26:40
Christian Giving - Calling Time Out
You may feel bombarded with options for your Christian giving. Calling "time out" helps individuals and families make better giving decisions. Why do you hit the pause button on your car CD player when you're looking for an unfamiliar address? You want to concentrate, don't you? When you are being asked to donate large amounts of money to an organization, hit the "pause button" before committing to a donation.
Christian Giving - Pause Button Statements
Consider the following statements which give you time to wisely consider your Christian giving:
- "I will consult with my spouse and get back to you. We always make major giving decisions together." This makes everyone aware that you and your spouse take giving large donations to charity seriously. It also allows you to benefit from your spouse's wisdom and intuition about the organization, its leaders, and the project's potential impact. The spouse will feel honored and valued by being included in the decision-making process. Proverbs 13:10 says “Where there is strife, there is pride, but wisdom is found in those who take advice.”
- "We will prayerfully consider that request and get back to you." When using this "pause button," be sure to follow through! How many times have we told someone that we will pray about something and forgotten to actually take that specific request to the Lord? God wants our giving decisions to incorporate the spiritual wisdom and discernment that comes from prayer and time in His Word. This is a valuable pause button when we hear God's answer and act obediently on it. James 1:5 says, "If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him."
- "We love you and your organization. Would you contact our professional advisor and provide them all the information they need to help us make the best decision on your request?" This pause button indicates that you take the stewardship of God's resources seriously. You desire to make well-informed decisions that involve your intellect, as well as your emotions. You may have already established charitable giving guidelines. You want to know if the organization has carefully developed a plan to use the funds for maximum impact. Your team of professionals allows you to give confidently, to increase the probability of successful outcomes and measurable impact. "But just as you excel in everything--in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us--see that you also excel in this grace of giving" (2 Corinthians 8:7).
Using these "pause buttons" allows the family to carefully consider the potential impact and probable success of each proposal. The family uses its intellectual capacity as well as its emotional and spiritual resources to make wise giving decisions.
Christian Giving - Measurable Results
Do you want measurable results in your Christian giving? The most enjoyable gifts that you make are to organizations and projects that you have confidence in and where you see measurable results. A music ministry provides tangible products which you can also utilize with your own friends, family and within your own sphere of influence.

From Provision Founder Scott MacLeod:
We believe that the anointed music, arts and media communications is the primary language of our times and will play a major role in the last day modern missions’ movement. We know that God is presently raising up his musicianaries for such a time as this! A musicianary is a musician with a mission that is greater than themselves. They are responding to the call of God on their lives and to Isaiah 6:8 which reads: Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said “Here I am, Send me.” But how many people understand that there is a difference between those who just “went” and those who have been “sent.” No one goes alone in God’s kingdom.
Our goal is to help launch musicians into the Harvest so that they can be effective and successful in reaching the field of people that they are called to impact. But no one can do this alone. It takes a team effort, It takes having the right people in your life who understand your call and your heart.
Psalm 51:16-17 "Going through the motions doesn't please you, a flawless performance is nothing to you. I learned to worship when my pride was shattered. Heart-shattered lives ready for love; don't for a moment escape God's notice."

The ministry’s need is for donations to cover the costs of recording budgets for new material so that we can continue to remind people that when the flooding is over, the buildings are re-built, the new job secured, and your own lives are back on track...that there are STILL people who need help; desperate help.
We are currently asking for each of our fans to donate $50.00
Our need is for $30,000, while that sounds like a lot, it covers the costs of recording which include studio time, engineers, producers, musicians, equipment, designers, manufacturing and more
Your donations are fully Tax Deductable and you will receive a statement at the end of each year, along with a receipt through PayPal with each donation.

In Her Own Words
From the beginning, this ministry has been about forgiveness and hope and a reminder that there is so much to be done around us. It started out that way because of an experience I had early on in my career and it hasn't ceased to carry that message. Looking back over the past few years it is amazing to see God's hand in all of it, because I didn't plan this message or put effort into keeping it going and yet I continue to receive songs that fit within the message.
I get very passionate about so many issues we have in our society today and realize that it is so easy to talk about what is wrong in our world and yet it's so hard for me to actually go out and do something about it. Jesus set the perfect example for us to follow because His life was all about serving and doing, not just talking and telling.
My hope is that this ministry and the songs that I sing not only educate and make people aware of the needs around us, but also gets them excited about how they can get involved and help make a difference. After all, that is why we are here...to love and serve God and those around us.
Thank you so much for your interest in donating to the ministry God has put before me. Psalm 33:1-5 says, “Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous...Sing to him a new song!” I take this verse to heart and your support helps to carry out the passions God has put on my heart.
My team and I pray for all of us involved in the ministry every day. We truly appreciate you, so thank you again from all of us. You are making a difference!
