Hi, I am James Bandela from India state of Andhrapradesh. As the Lord God Almighty says, Psa 127:1 Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain. 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,

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.
Millard will be missed by us all. His good works will continue and will
grow, just as he planned.
I am a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity of Chester County (PA). I met you and Millard at the Blitz Build in Shreveport in 2005 and 2006, where we built a house for Delores and Christopher Quinn on Clay St. Millard also came to Paoli Presbyterian Church in Pennsylvania, where we constructed the home.
My fondest memories of Millard was after work, in the evenings, when we went to a few churches in Shreveport for dinner. After we ate, he would give a short "sermon." It wasn't quite a sermon, nor a speech, but more of a spiritually uplifting moment: we were all so tired from working 10 hours in the rain and mud, and needed to calm our souls for a while. Millard inspired up with faith and dedication; that doing the right thing made us all better people, and that what we were doing was the basis and foundation of real Christianity. I remember that the members of these wealthy churches felt this way too, and contributed money to our cause.
I was shocked and depressed to hear of Millard's death, but I realized that Millard would want me, and all of us, to continue down the righteous path, and not dwell of the past, but look to improving the future for all people.
I pray for Millard's soul, and everyone in the Fuller family.
God bless you,
I met Mr. Fuller at the Jimmy Carter work project in Atlanta and have worked on some 30 Habitat projects over the years. His life has been an inspiration to me in many ways. I would like to find a way for our company to be involved with the Fuller Center. We provide service and installation of heating and air conditioning in the metro Atlanta area.
