Global Builders - Nicaragua

The Fuller Center for Housing

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 6 people are interested
Nica

Las Peñitas is a coastal village where many of the inhabitants are fisherman. It is also an indigenous village - somewhat comparable to a reservation in the United States - with their own elected council. It is a beautiful part of the country where the people are very friendly and welcoming. However, it is a study of contrasts. Smiling children laugh and play during the day and lay their heads to rest in flimsy, unsafe shacks at night. Fisherman and workers struggle mightily to feed and house thier families, yet offer you food and even the shirts off their back. You’ll love helping these hard-working people who not only help themselves but are just as eager to help others.

Each trip to Nicaragua will be with a group of mission-minded volunteers - typically 8-20 total - who want to experience the world, meet new people, and make a difference. No skills required. Trips last 1-2 weeks and include sightseeing in this Central American nation of mountains and beautiful Pacific coastal beaches.

Mission Statement

The Fuller Center for Housing, faith-driven and Christ-centered, promotes collaborative and innovative partnerships with individuals and organizations in an unrelenting quest to provide adequate shelter for all people in need worldwide.

Description

Foundational Principles

We at the Fuller Center for Housing believe that:

We are part of a God movement, and movements don't just stop.

We have been called to this housing ministry; we didn't just stumble into it.

We are unashamedly Christian, and enthusiastically ecumenical.

We aren't a church but we are a servant of the Church.

We are faith driven, knowing that after we've done all we can do the Lord will help finish the job--something that requires us to stretch beyond our rational reach.

We are a grassroots ministry, recognizing that the real work happens on the ground in communities around the world through our covenant partners, so a large, overseeing bureaucracy isn’t needed.

We try to follow the teachings of the Bible and believe that it says that we shouldn't charge interest of the poor, so we don't. Government has a role in our work in helping set the stage, but that we shouldn't look to it as a means to fund the building of home.
