Really you are doing God's work for the poor people in the world and we a re praying for your projects to be a blessing unto all nations, and shall i be a part of your work from India let us know.

As an organization we write to encourage the Fuller's family to take heart and keep hope alive. At this sad time, no tears or sorrow can ever bring comfort and happiness except from the Almighty God.

Therefore, call upon Him and He will definitely give you the strength and courage to bear the loss. For He said in His word He will never leave you nor forsake you. He promised to be with you throughout your endeavor. Take heart in the Lord.
Our prayers are with you.

Take care and May God bless you,

Thomas Chinapoh Karmon

During the Memorial Service in Atlanta, we were very moved by the total service, especially whenever one of Georgia's youngest child said " Grandpa always played with me," when asked what he remembered about Grandpa. Whenever the world looks to material things, not one of your lovely children or grandchildren said anything about things he gave them, materially, but all shared how he loved them. What a wonderful treasure for you to hang on to, Linda. You both gave of yourselves and that is what everyone who ever worked for or met Millard will remember him by ...LOVE for ALL!

Thank you for letting us share in your lives and ministry! God bless!

I have known Millard and Linda Fuller since 1994 when I first met them at the Habitat for Habitat for Humanity-Los Angeles as a Board Member. There started a great friendship with such a wonderful man and my ten-year involvement with Habitat for Humanity. When the Fullers started the Fuller Center, I and other former Habitat for Humanity-Los Angeles Board Members started planning with Millard to start a Fuller Center Regional Center in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, we did not achieve this before Millard's passing, but all have vowed to continue Millard's work and will establish the Center in Los Angeles soon. We know that Millard will be giving us great guidance from on high in heaven.

Dear Linda & family,

The hearts of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Arkansas family go out to you all.

In 2003 you and Millard came to Little Rock, AR to receive Second Baptist Church's (downtown) Brooks Hays Memorial Christian Citizenship Award. You did a beautiful job sharing you story and your life mission. As the pastor of Second at the time, we felt so good about giving this award to you and Millard.

In April 2007, Millard was the keynote speaker at the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Arkansas' Spring Conference. It was a great opportunity for our network to hear his life story personally, many hearing it for the first time even though they had helped build a house in Little Rock or in Arkansas through the years.

Charles Ray and I hosted Millard and introduced him to Dr. Fitz Hill, new president of Arkansas Baptist College, the only historic black Baptist college still in existence west of the Mississippi River. It is in the most dangerous zip code in Little Rock. We drove the neighborhood and dreamed about Fuller Center Houses being built as well as renovating a house on the campus and moving our office from affluent west Little Rock into it (which we have done).

In September 2008 we invited Millard back to Little Rock to speak to a group of housing development specialists. He brought the crowd to their feet with his incredible stories and his inspirational vision about providing affordable housing for those many families who need it.

Linda, we are so grateful to God for you and Millard and your life work and ministry, and will continue to keep his name and the Fuller Center's mission alive in Arkansas.

With love & prayers,
Ray Higgins, Coordinator
CBF of Arkansas

I am a Turkish architect. I was honored to meet and listen to Mr. Fuller at the AIA Conference in Boston in 2008.. Millard spoke with wisdom, experience and humor. He was a man of faith, the epitomy of integrity and an innovative leader. I am so much inspired of his work and what God has done in his life that I pledge to do my best in construction industry just like him. "Leave the world better than you found. Do good works in God's name". I pray that God will comfort and sustain you in the loss of Mr. Fuller. I am sure he is being missed terribly. God bless.

I am very grateful that Millard did not give up his dream to provide safe housing when Habitat closed him out. In 2008 when my trip to Armenia to build houses with Habitat was cancelled, Fuller Center willingly came in to work with the disaffiliated Habitat Armenia staff to allow those of us still wanting to lead trips to be able to do so. The mission of Fuller Center for Housing is one that I wholeheartedly support and am proud to lead mission trips with this organization. Armenia 2009 here I come!

I had the great privilege of meeting Millard and Linda three years ago in San Diego, CA. I was in a bible meeting in Ridgecrest NC when I heard the news. What a great man of God Millard was. He is the true definition of a man after God's heart. If only all of us could manifest the dream God has placed on our heart, the world would be as Jesus said it would be. We can do far more than Christ here on earth so he went to be at the right hand of the Father. Millard you are missed by many but I am sure you are thrilled to be walking with Jesus. I am so blessed to have known you.
Linda - Paul and I send our love to you and pray God's continued peace, blessings, love, joy and health to you as you carry on the Dream.
