Widow's Project | You can make her world better

Hi, I'm Byron Easterling. Crystal and I are founders of Build His House (BHH), a non-profit 501.c3 one of our chief purposes is to create safe and secure housing for widows and single mothers. We are presently rebuilding homes in Central America in the nation of Nicaragua where we have been serving since 1998.  

This all began for me in 1979 in the mountains of Guatemala during a summer missions trip as a 24 year old who was hungry to do something more than care for myself. On arrival we had the opportunity to spend a couple nights with a local family in a larger town in the mountains. This was not for me! I wanted to go to the furthest reaches to a small mountain village. Off I went. There I meet amazing, loving and kind people. Not that I didn't expect this but during my short stay I met Esperanza a mountain widow. She changed my life as I watched her take a few meager coins that she earned from selling fire wood to the villagers and share with the less fortunate children barely clothed and definitely malnourished. I found myself wanting to help her. To make her world better! 

Fast forward to present and you will find us rebuilding the homes of widows in Nicaragua. Beginning in the mountain town of Matagalpa we discover well deserving widows through local pastors and leaders. We have a onsite manager and construction team allowing donations to build into the local economy as well as providing a home rebuild for the widow. It's a win - win - win! The widow wins from a new home. The local economy wins because we use local labor and supplies and you win because you have fulfilled a God ordained mandate to care for the widow. Good job!

Your generosity is a big part of what makes BHH possible and we greatly appreciate it! 


Meet the Widows


How You Can Help

We have the honor and privilege of traveling around the world and meeting so many amazing and wonderful friends. Once they hear about what the Lord is doing with the Widow's Project in Nicaragua they often ask, "So, how can we help?" 

Have you ever considered that you have friends that are like minded? They know you and love you for who you are and the things you believe in. That's what often makes our friendships so relevant. These are the ones that like to hear what you believe in and learn how they can take part. 

Friendships are vital to our lives. They give us hope and create encouragement as we walk out all we have before us. We have found that it's these same friends who like to know about your heart for widow's and for the Widow's Project Nicaragua. 

Will you consider hosting an information session? It's easy, it's fun, very relational and it can provide the future home for a well deserving widow to have her home rebuilt. 

Contact Erin at erin@byroneasterling.com and let her know you'd like to host an information session.

Several years ago, I began writing what I called, Love Notes From Dad. They have become a part of our prophetic gatherings as we travel. They are simple expressions of how I believe the Father speaks of us and sees us from a heavenly point of view.It was then that Crystal had the great idea to take these and create a daily devotional series. With five days for each Love Note. Allowing you to go deeper and hear the heartbeat of the Father for you through practical exercises, scripture, meditation and more.Crystal and I pray you will enjoy these moments with Dad and discover his abundant love for you as you search his heart through these Love Notes to you.
