Instead of going through the motions…

What if Carrie Filling Vajen had lived her Christian life “going through the motions”? What if she had chosen to be served and not to serve? What if her heart for the weak and forgotten had not moved her to be Jesus to the last and the least?

When Carrie Filling Vajen decided to give everything, to do more than just what was expected of a Christian, she, in honor and memory of the Filling family, opened the doors to this Home of Mercy. At that time, she may not have understood the significance of her actions, but 60 years later, we understand clearly what Filling Homes has meant to those we serve.
