Pacific Island Missionaries
This year our family returned from almost seven years working as missionaries in the Pacific Islands. Although there are good things about being back it has been a challenging transition.
We are very fortunate we owned our own home, which was rented out in our absence but had a small mortgage. In addition the costs of setting ourselves up in New Zealand, from school fees and uniforms, to warm clothes, to purchasing a car have all been challenges. Finding work has also not been simple.
Initially only one of us found work (part-time) so living on this income has been hard. During this time a friend contacted us to talk about Liberty trust. In addition to working with Liberty Trust to purchase and pay off their own house, they had been putting money aside to assist a missionary family on their return and they offered to do this for us. This was a huge answer to prayer and a way out of debt and substantial financial challenges.
They gifted to us a $50,000 loan which has enabled us to clear our debts and our other mortgage on which we were paying significant interest. Now we can pay this back with one fortnightly payment, have no interest and feel like we are finally making ends meet and making financial progress. Now both of us are employed we can comfortably cover the repayments as well as support our family.
We are so blessed by this and would love to suggest this to others as a way of blessing someone. Not only can the Trust be a way of paying off your own house, you can pay into a mortgage for your children or to bless someone else.
We are so grateful to this family and to Liberty trust for helping us in this way and pray we can in the future give to others in a similar way. We pray God would Bless the work of Liberty trust to benefit many others also. We thank God that as we have trusted him He has provided.
Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.
