New homeowners enjoy Thanksgiving to remember in Weeki Wachee, Florida

WEEKI WACHEE, Florida — The first new home build by The Fuller Center for Housing Nature Coast was delayed by a few false starts beginning with the Covid pandemic, but many supporters and volunteers would come together this year to help Nathan Adams and his special needs daughter Lindsey finally have a simple, decent home of their own — and their gratitude was on display as they moved in just in time to celebrate Thanksgiving.

“God’s got this,” Nathan said. “This is His house for me to temporarily take care of until I go home to meet my maker.”

“What an amazing journey this has been,” Fuller Center Nature Coast President Tom Rogers said. “From the beginning to the completion, this has been a labor of love for me. This project has been a true test of perseverance and patience along with learning to trust that God’s timing is always perfect. Praise and glory be to God!”

Part of that perfect timing was hosting Fuller Center Bicycle Adventure cyclists for a build day during their 2023 Tour de Florida ride, Rogers said.

“Ride leader Neil Mullikin and the entire team really helped out not only with the build but also with the spiritual relationships developed over those two days, touching many hearts.”

Rogers said many others contributed to the success of the build, including Corbin’s Custom Design, Christian Church in the Wildwood, and many individuals.

  • It is hard to look at these photos and read the story behind them without a tear of joy. Millard Fuller would be so proud of this second effort and the return to the fundamentals. I’m so grateful for all those that make this work.
