Meal-a-Day went on its first Build project to Cobán, Guatemala with around 30 brethren. For two weeks, these brethren were divided into teams and sent to specific Habitat for Humanity worksites in the area to help local construction workers build houses for three families.

While there, the brethren formed bonds with the local families, construction workers, and each other, all the while trying to spread the gospel in both word and deed. Since there have been builds in Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and domestically in New Jersey and Oregon.

Volunteers for the build project in Nicaragua pose with shovels.

Projects like these provide several outlets for the body of Christ:

  1. To show God’s love to the world, thus spreading the gospel
  2. To experience our faith in action in ways not always available to most living in a developed country
  3. To serve in ways that one does not always have available in their local ecclesia

Future Builds

Meal-a-Day would like to continue these projects as long as possible. Look for announcements about future build project early each year.
