IN THE NEWS: Building homes in Armenia a summer tradition for Manuelians

(Asbarez Armenian News) Sona and Leo Manuelian discuss their work with The Fuller Center for Housing in Armenia in a new article about the trips they lead each summer to help people of their homeland have decent homes.

"Helping my sisters and brothers in Armenia fills my heart with joy," Sona is quoted as saying in the article. "There is no other country like Armenia. My roots are here. Working with the Fuller Center gives me such elation that my heart becomes larger than my body! We do God-pleasing work."

"I do this work because I never want to see Armenians forced from their lands," Leo said. "Homelessness is a problem we can solve, and I am committed to being a part of the solution by building homes for families who need our help. I do this work with a tremendous amount of pride. I will work with FCHA until the good Lord calls me home."
