A House

I would like to share a favor I received from God through the intercession of Dora. We are a married couple with five children, ages ranging from 6 to 17 years old. A few years ago we decided to send our children to schools in Sternik. Our house is quite far from these schools, between 36 and 50 kilometers, and this commute was costing us much time and energy.

Opus Dei - A House

I would like to share a favor I received from God through the intercession of Dora. We are a married couple with five children, ages ranging from 6 to 17 years old. A few years ago we decided to send our children to schools in Sternik. Our house is quite far from these schools, between 36 and 50 kilometers, and this commute was costing us much time and energy.

This year we decided we would rent a house or an apartment near the school. Unfortunately, our economic possibilities are quite modest, and we could only allocate a couple thousand zlotych towards renting.

With faith in divine Providence, we started looking for a place. Among other things, I printed out an ad, and my wife hung it around Międzylesie (the town of the school). We also looked online, where we saw many houses and apartments, and for the price we offered we would only be able to get a small apartment. Meanwhile I began to ask Dora for help in finding a home for our family.

After a month, we decided on a small three-room apartment in Józefów (a town nearby), for 1400 zlotych. We signed the contract on Friday and Saturday we moved into the house. When signing the contract, I had the feeling that it would not be the definitive place for our family.

An hour after our move to that floor, a man from Międzylesie called, saying he had read our ad. He said we could rent a floor – with a plot of land – in a house that was not being used, for 1,000 zł. The apartment included five bedrooms, and two bathrooms. And it is about 500 meters from the school ... At first I said I was not interested, because we had just rented this other apartment. Moreover, the situation was complicated because we had already signed a contract that would not terminate for another three months.

We knew the owner of the apartment in Józefów would not accept an immediate cancellation of the contract, so we decided to look for someone to replace us. And we got it! In two weeks we found another family seeking a house in precisely that area. And so we moved to our house in Międzylesie. My wife is delighted with the kitchen appliances. For the first time, our children can walk to school, and we are happy because God once again took care of us.

After we began living in the new house, we have learned more about Dora, including her “charisma”: taking care of the house!
