NO PAIN, NO GAIN Raewyn & I attended a Liberty Trust meeting in Auckland, run by Bruce & Maude McDonald in 1996, and were inspired by what the Trust had to offer.
We began to participate with monthly contributions of $125 - all that we could afford at the time - with the object of refinancing our house loan, and the costs of producing 2 music albums which had been added to the mortgage.
When we were advised that a loan was available in late 2010, there were mixed feelings. Our mortgage had grown considerably, we'd moved to a new address, and the repayments to Liberty Trust were going to be more than the repayments on the remainder of our bank loan.
We are SO GLAD that we accepted the loan because by the time we sold our Auckland house and moved to Tauranga 4 years later, we'd repaid over $50,000, interest-free, back to the Trust, and our equity enabled us to buy, mortgage-free in Tauranga. We had no idea that in contributing to Liberty Trust, to the very edge of affordability, we were contributing to the mortgage-free retirement that we are currently enjoying.
Jeremiah 29:11 says "For I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope..."
We heartily recommend the discipline (pain) of contributing to Liberty Trust, for the reward (gain) of becoming mortgage-free.
