The 2015 Fuller Center Bike Adventure (FCBA) is a ten week 4,000 mile bike ride to raise money and awareness for affordable housing. I’ve chosen to ride during Segment 6, July 12-19, Wichita KS to Columbia MO via Kansas City. I invite you to support me with a donation. Read on to learn how and why this is a worthy cause.
The Fuller Center for Housing of Greater Kansas City is the ministry I helped start in 2009. We are affiliated with The Fuller Center for Housing, an international housing ministry founded by Millard and Linda Fuller in 2004. The Fuller Center loves people the way Jesus loves. The Fuller Center embraces people who are struggling, are hurting, and who just need a helping hand.
The Fuller Center for Housing builds new homes and rehabs older homes with low income families to buy at no profit, no interest mortgages. The Fuller Center also repairs and remodels owner-occupied homes for people who don’t have the physical ability or money to do the work. These families make voluntary donations on terms they can afford equal to the cost of the blessing they receive. In this way they bless others in need as they have been blessed. This ministry is happening all over the world. And it’s growing fast!
Projects range from wheelchair ramps, grab bars for safety, and minor plumbing repairs to new roofs, bathroom and kitchen remodels for accessibility, and whole house rehabilitation. Relying mostly on gifts from individuals and churches we have built two homes. The first was with Lorie Perdieu who now serves on our board and most recently with the Rodriguez family who contributed over 1500 Sweat Equity hours.
When the FCBA cyclists get to Kansas City on Wednesday, July 16 you are invited to greet the cyclists at Northland Cathedral and then join us for dinner on Thursday, July 17 at Park Hill Christian Church. Details will be posted on our website at http://fullercenterkc.org.
Gifts for the Fuller Center Bike Adventure should be made out to Fuller Center for Housing with Kansas City in the memo line and mailed to me at the address below or you can give online at http://tiny.cc/GrahamsBA.
Thank you for supporting the cause of decent, safe and affordable housing and supporting me.
In Christian partnership,
