Raymond & Elizabeth Jukes

We joined Liberty Trust in 1998 and received our interest free loan in July last year.

We have been in the process of renovating for ten years.  We have had a couple of lean years due to loss of employment, Raymond being the sole income earner these twenty years since we married.  We have three children, Andrew who is studying accounting at Polytechnic, Nathan age sixteen in year twelve who has studied furniture making and is looking at building and related trades and has done some carpet laying.  Sarah age fourteen is year ten and  has shown interest in hair dressing but the possibilities are still many and varied.

We’ve accomplished a lot with the income we have had almost doubled the size of our house by excavating under our existing house.  We are still looking forward to putting a garage on the property.

Scriptures of significance for Raymond: 

And my God will meet all your needs
according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
          Phil. Ch 4 v 19

Elisabeth is a song writer and her latest song is from the scripture, proverbs chapter 3 verse 3-6:

Let love and faithfulness never leave you,
Bind them around your neck,                             
Write them on the tablet of your heart.
Then you will win favour and a good name,
In the sight of God and man.
Trust in the lord with all thy heart.
And lean not on your own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge Him,
And he will make your paths straight.
