Remembering Millard Fuller
He became a millionaire before the age of 30 . . . and then gave it all away to serve God. He carved out a niche in Christian service by helping families have simple, decent places to live. Though he passed away on Feb. 3, 2009, his dream lives on through The Fuller Center for Housing’s ministry.
Elizabeth Hines teaches school in Indianapolis, where she is raising four sons, ages 10-14, living in an apartment complex too full of danger for the boys to play outside. Elizabeth dreamed of having her own home, but her salary couldn’t stretch far enough to raise the kids, pay the bills and have a mortgage.
T Joy is a carpenter in Trivandrum, India, with a wife and two small children, all living in a two room house with an asbestos roof. The Joys also dreamed of owning their own home, but high interest rates made it impossible.
