Excitement is already building for the second annual Millard Fuller Legacy Build in Indianapolis. Volunteers in the 2010 host city are working this week on four, Greater Blessing home renovations. The houses will be dedicated Friday, May 13 by a slate of special guests including Linda Fuller, co-founder of The Fuller Center; Greg Ballard, mayor of Indianapolis and representatives from South East Neighborhood Development (SEND) and the People Helping People (PHP) Network.
"Indianapolis’ participation in this event represents an awakening for churches throughout our community to host an international mission right here at home," said City-County Councillor and Fuller Center International Board Member Jeff Cardwell. "The city is to be proud of earning this international designation as part of this project … We will be at the epicenter of what is truly a global initiative."
"With the dedication of the four homes, we are already seeing the fruits of this wonderful initiative and I am most pleased to be a part of this effort and see these homes come to life in an all-new way," said Mayor Greg Ballard.
The dedication will be on St. Paul Street, which is the central site for the Legacy Build. Sixteen additional renovation projects are planned in Indianapolis for September, along with the construction of ten new homes. All told, covenant partners of The Fuller Center will be dedicating more than 100 homes across the U.S. and around the world as part of the 2010 Legacy Build event.
