From east to west coast

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

The Fuller Center of Housing puts together several cross country treks to fulfill their mission of building houses for the poor and providing a hand up, as opposed to a hand out.

Melissa Merrill is the bike adventure trip leader and she said the trip is always fun and she is thankful for the hospitality shown to them throughout the trip.

Heights Baptist Church Pastor Joe Dillabaugh said it was a no brainer to allow the large group of bicyclist to stay at their church.  He said their mission aligns well with his church's belief and he, along with his congregation, loved the fellowship having them stay at their church brought.

This trip is taking the group from New Jersey and ending in Oregon.
