What an exciting time when Liberty Trust first became a reality and what an honour to be a part of the first pioneer group!
We were blessed by Waverley’s parents sponsoring her while she was at school. When we married we were not sure what God’s plan for us in Liberty Trust was. Being farmers meant we were going to need a big loan to purchase cows for share-milking. Owning our own home did not look like much of a reality. Where did Liberty Trust come into this? We continued to sow into Liberty Trust, trusting God to reveal His purpose in His timing.
It was wonderful to see God’s fulfilment of the original promise. One by one others were being blessed throughout the commitment of all. Still it was not our turn. Why? We held onto the promise that God knew better than us. It was quite nice to know that when to purchase was in God’s hands and not our own! Finally we got ‘the phone call’. All of the original group members had been balloted and ours was the last one left!
God's timing was perfect. We had moved from the farm and were looking at a house to buy. Looking back we know that if we had received our interest free loan during any of those 12 years we would not be where we are today, enjoying the best God has for us. We have been blessed while being a blessing.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3 verses 5-6
