Millard Fuller was an exceptional person in every respect. He was a very good lawyer for a number of years, but changed his line of work. He shut down his firm and started Habitat for Humanity. Millard ran that program for years and eventually left to start another ministry, the Fuller Center for Housing. Even though Millard died last year, his work on this earth continues.
Millard Fuller loved the Lord and he also loved helping people. He worked hard for years doing good for lots of folks. A great deal can be learned about Millard, and his character, from his acceptance speech at the World Methodist Peace Award in December of 2004, where he was honored. Millard, in accepting the award, had this to say:
Let us recommit ourselves to the message of the heavenly host of long ago which praised God and exclaimed, “Glory to God in the highest. And on earth, peace, goodwill toward men.”
Millard’s brother, Doyle, who is an exceptional lawyer in Montgomery and my very good friend, was one of Millard’s biggest fans and supporters. Doyle has lots of good and interesting stories about his brother. Linda Fuller, Millard’s wife for nearly 50 years, wrote shortly after his death:
Millard would not want us to mourn too long his passing from us, but rather encourage everyone to ‘tool up’ and continue … That’s the way he would want to be remembered and honored.
Over the years Millard and Linda Fuller gave a tremendous number of families hope, joy and a new start by providing them homes. I can’t think of a better way to help others who need help. God blessed their work and fortunately the work continues. If you want to learn more go to www.fullercenter.org.
