Chairman Adv T H Lawrence of the Trivandrum Fuller Center for Housing (TFCH), India completed an eventful visit to the Fuller Center for Housing (FCFH), USA from June 17 to 19, 2015. He took time to make it during his stay in San Francisco with his son and family. President David Snell received him at the Atlanta airport and accommodated him in Quality Inn, a good hotel in Americus. The chairman met with all the staff of the FCH and held talks with President David, Director Ryan and Co-founder Linda (who also found time to lunch with him). Ryan took him round places of organizational and historical significance such as the FCFH Office, Koinonia Farm (where Millard Fuller had founded Habitat for Humanity with Clarence Jordan and built the first partnership house), Clarence's Shack (where Clarence used to rest and reflect), Koinonia Community Center (where resident volunteers are trained), Global Village & Discovery Center (where models of Habitat houses built in various countries in the Latin American/Caribbean, African/Middle East and Asia/Pacific regions are erected), Plains, (which is home of President Jimmy Carter), Jimmy Carter National Historic Site (Museum and Visitor Center) and Habitat for Humanity Headquarters open premises. Meanwhile, Lawrence also had the privilege of dining with the Davids and the Ryans. On completion of the tour the TFCH chairman was seen off at the Atlanta airport by Global Builders Coordinator Allen Slabaugh.
