This story is a little different from others here since we have had our Ark Resource mortgage since 2008 and previously written about receiving this loan. This story is about receiving assistance in a time of need.

We had been steadily repaying our loan and watching the amount owing go progressively down. Then unfortunately our car was written off in a car crash.

The value of the insurance paid out was not enough to buy a good replacement, so we decided to take out a personal loan to increase the amount we could spend on a replacement vehicle. We were just able to keep up with the payments for the personal loan alongside repaying our Ark Resources mortgage.

Then we discovered our house needed urgent repairs. The garage floor was leaking into the house in the rain. The windows, doors, and an outside wall were also allowing small amounts of water to seep inside with the wind and rain. And to top it off the roof started leaking into the family room!

Something needed to be done urgently, but how could we pay for it? We rang Ark Resources to ask if there was anything they could do for us.

Could we reduce our repayments?

Evan Harvey, chairman and lending officer, helped us. He took our case to the Board and sought approval to extend a special circumstances loan to us. The Board approved and soon funds were made available to us. We were able to repay our personal loan, arrange roof repairs and get quotes to replace the windows and doors and seal the garage floor.

Now we have half our new windows installed, and progressing steadily with the remaining work and we are in a much more secure financial position. Thank you to Ark Resources and Liberty Trust.

God’s timing is always perfect, He is never late, never early, always on time. This loan has come in a very timely manner for us. We are grateful for God’s provision through Ark Resource.
