Taylor and I have been looking forward to this trip for a long time! My sister and nephew will be with us as well as we help finish homes in Armenia. The team of 16 will work side by side to accomplish whatever task is asked of us. We are drawn to our ancestral home and excited to be part of such a wonderful mission. The funny thing is that everyone who goes on these mission trips is not Armenian. We will meet many others from all over the world. This my third trip there, and Taylor's first, and I'm sure it will be an eye-opening, life changing experience either way. While we're there the weather will be hot and dry, the accomodations modest at best. Please put us in your prayers as we embark on our mission at the end of June. We can't wait to share photos and stories from our first mother/daughter trip!

I've just returned to Oregon after a week working on the Springhill, Louisiana project. I just wanted to let everyone know what a great experience it is, if you've not had the opportunity yet to participate. It was hard work, but a great feeling in the end to know we helped a wonderful family obtain a home of their own. The locals took such great care of us, with homes to stay in and meals prepared for us. And in my case, my hostess did my laundry almost every day! Our team, mostly from California, led by my brother Roger and my Dad Garvin, were great fun to work with and get to know.

I have had the great joy to share in 2 builds with the Fuller Center. On my first build in West Point, GA. I was so blessed to meet and share time with Millard Fuller. He truly was an ispiring man. His humble way of making you feel that what you were doing was so important and valued, made all the effort worthwile. On the second build in Lannett, AL. I worked on a greater blessing rehab project with some of the same wonderful people. To this day I think about Miss Edith and hope that her life is alittle easier and more pleasant because of the work done on her home. I can only wish for the people in Louisiana that they gain the same blessing we received by being part of the building project. I believe it takes hands to build a house, but hearts to build a home. Bless you all.

I just now read a post by Georgia Luedi that was posted July 2009. My heart goes out to her as losing a loved one is bad enough without the pain that she is suffering. Georgia, Millard's legacy will go on forever no matter who notices it. I for one will never forget him and now owe him many thanks for two jobs, one with Habitat and one with Fuller Center. Not many people can touch your life the way he has touched mine. I will never forget him as long as I live, and I will do my part of passing on his dreams and spread love and hope everywhere I go. Georgia, I'm so sorry for your loss, but I got to think Millard is smiling about what's going on in Ohio.

Some prayerful thoughts which have come to me regarding Haiti include the fact that God is not in the earthquake, wind and fire, but is a still, small voice declaring His/Her unconditional love to all His/Her children in Haiti. God has never forsaken any of His dear ones in Haiti. He's holding them in the palm of His hand, guiding, guarding and governing them. The Word of God is there for all to hear, coming in many different forms, including the love, smiles and care of friends, neighbors, NGO's and millions of world citizens who are sending out their prayers and dollars. It's a time for renewal, progress and great blessing. May all the care workers receive the needed strength and endurance needed.

Since my daughter introduced me to the Fuller Center, we have been energized by Millard's life history and vision. Now comes the Haitian crisis, and we -- along with MANY in our area in various organizations (church, charitable, ...) -- are looking for the best way to help after our initial financial support to organizations we trust to get the aid to the people.
There are many Haitian members of the congregation my wife and I attend. I would like to seek sponsorship by my church of one or more of the homes proposed. However, when one member who has been a Haitian supporter for years (and was funding a school for computer training in Haiti long before this crisis) called, he was not able to get any specifics about where in Haiti the homes will be built. My subsequent attempt to find out was also unsuccessful. Is this information available now? Thanks, and God bless.
[From Fuller Center Staff: Thanks for your note, Bill, and for your interest in helping Haiti. At this time, the Fuller Center does not have an exact location for rebuilding in Haiti. We are working out those details as quickly as possible right now. You have been added to our e-mail list to receive updates. Any others who wish to receive updates, please send a request to email@example.com or check our Haiti page often. Thanks!]

We hold the remembrances of being with the Fuller Family close to our hearts, especially this week. May God continue to be with you and bless you with His mercies.

Hi to my FCH friends in Americus, I am writing to let you know that my mind has been on Millard today. He accomplished so much during his time on earth with us. I am delighted to have been a part of his vision for these past 7 years. Thank you to all of you for continuing his mission and giving so many folks the opportunity to help others in such a meaningful way. Oyee! Peace to you all, Cynthia
