Dear Mr. Walker,
I don’t know how long ago you helped us. You would know. It was over ten years ago. We were in deep, deep debt. Since Mrs. M handled the finances, I didn’t know how bad it was. She tried to hide it from me. She had turned to borrowing cash from credit card companies and I was astounded when I found out we were $100,000 in debt.
She was carrying a very heavy load and I didn’t know the extent of it.
One night, at 3 AM the Lord woke me, told me to go to the computer and look up bankruptcy. I had such pease as I read about it. Then I went and woke Mrs. M. to show her what I had found. I would tell you of her response but there are no words to describe the instant hope and freedom that she found.
Shortly thereafter we were led to you.
Mrs. M thought that if you claimed bankruptcy you would lose your home. She thought that you would lose everything. We went through the process with you and were able to keep everything. We kept our home and everything in it. We kept our cars. We kept our retirement savings.
When we finished off our bankruptcy debt, you told us that only one in four do that.
And now we are living in complete financial security. Our home is paid for. We use the credit card every month but pay it off completely every month. We have not paid a nickel to interest in years. Our credit rating is over 800.
We both have social security checks comin in monthly. And I have come up with the perfect retirement plan. I am 72 and work at _______ for 24 hours a week. I have all my days off except Saturday. And I make much more per hour than most who work retail.
When customers come in I give them great customer service and get them in the right boots. But 70% of the time no one is there. And since I’m the only one working in the store, that gives me time to do many things. I read Scripture, I pray, I write and I play hearts. I am a volunteer for helping veterans, and much gets done to help them during down time at the store.
I tell you, it’s like not working at all. I’m in great shape and will be able to do this for years.
But our financial security started when you showed us the way. You are a lawyer and probably would say that this is what you do. But I would call it your ministry.
On your television ads you speak of the financial freedom one could have. We are living proof of your testimony and we just wanted to write and thank you.
