Building a Home, Building Love

The mud and stick homes cannot withstand heavy storms and when the rainy season comes, there is no escaping the harsh weather. If a storm destroys their mud and stick home, many families have nowhere to go and live without shelter.

where we serve

Langue, Honduras

Where we serve in Langue Honduras, we see houses like this everywhere. 

Montana de la Flor, Honduras

The Tolupan Indians live in tiny houses of mud and stick, with no division of rooms or privacy. Over the years, the mud deteriorates, causing hazards to the family living inside.  

What it Does

A block machine enables locals in Honduras to get inexpensive, sturdy blocks that will build safe homes, and it does much more...

Create Employment

Build the Kingdom of God

Honor Dignity

We train and hire locals to work on the block machine, and they earn money which they can use to support their families.
By laying a firm foundation for a family’s house, it opens up a door for our local missionaries and coworkers to lay the groundwork of the gospel and share the Living Hope in Jesus Christ.
This blessing gives so much more than a strong home, it gives the family the pride of providing for themselves. Poverty robs people of dignity and Hope, but God answers prayer and gives us daily miracles.
