It was January 2003 and my husband left his job to help me with my business and apostolate/ministry...and eventually other business ventures.
If that wasn't scary enough, I was pregnant for our 9th child and we barely scraped up enough money to keep the health insurance.
Everyone thought we were crazy.
We didn't bother to tell anyone that after much prayer, I felt an urgent need for Walt to cash out his 401K and buy all the silver he could get his hands on.
Yes, he thought I was nuts but he knew I had been praying for Gods direction.
PS: God DOES speak to you during Adoration!
We strapped all our babies into car seats, booster seats...all the seats..lol!
For several weeks we traveled all over the state...stopping at every coin shop.
It was a big family adventure...though a bit scary.
What if I heard God wrong?
The words "Have faith, you heard correctly" kept resonating in my head.
I will zip on through to the good part...I DID HEAR OUR LORD CORRECTLY!
A few years later, silver went crazy and we were able to cash it in and pay off a ton of debt!
This allowed us to eventually buy this beautiful farm on sacred and holy ground (One of the first Jesuit Mission sites to the Indians).
I am reminded of the tree that Zacchaeus climbed...God knew well beforehand that he would need it!
Our Lord will guide our steps if only we listen.
Sending our love and prayers to our remnant family...Wendy, Walt and the entire Cukierski family

Here is a post, from a recipient of what we do,.
L**** and I were one of the precipitants of This mission. She is right. My parking was 9 per day for 3 months. Then on top of that food cost me approximately 15 per day. That was cheap - I got vouchers for $5.00 per meal. So somedays I did not eat or made meals last for more then one meal. Had to. Parking was $810. Food was $1,300. Then you have normal household bills and I have 3 animals I had to pay to have people come and take care of them. At first I had my dog in the Kennel for 1/2 the time. That was about 500. It is VERY expensive to have a sick child. That was Just ONE hospital stay. We have had numerous ones. Some only a few days, some a week or two. Without their help we would of gone fully under!
From providing necessary funds to actually having families stay with us...we DO what we say we do!
Kindly, head HERE. We always send a nice gift for your help
