A great blessing through a catastrophe

On June 3, 2018, Guatemala experienced a catastrophic series of eruptions from the Fuego volcano. It was Guatemala’s most severe volcanic eruption in 45 years. The eruption came with little warning, leaving almost no evacuation time and resulting in the deaths of nearly 200 people. The Muj family were among those affected, losing both their home and their way of life. For generations, the Muj family had lived and labored on a coffee plantation, which was completely destroyed in the eruption.


Buy One Build One partnered with Barry Staley, a missionary with Independent Missionary Network, to help the Muj family rebuild. Their new home was a great blessing in their time of need and a message of hope for the future.

The completed home.
