When we started the Christian-housesitters website I had a reasonable understanding of codeing in html but that was as far as my knowledge went.
I soon discovered that I needed much more.
A content management system
A security system
PhP codeing etc etc. I was lost.
I spent ages searching the internet looking for suggestions and there is a lot out there but it is expensive and we had very limited funds. We prayed. Should have done that first.
I then sent an email to a company who sell content management systems asking for their advice. One of the owners offered to help me free of charge. He has spent days writing code, fixing bugs etc. Nothing is ever too much trouble. Marilyn and I have nicknamed him our ‘computer angel’
Without his help we could never have managed. As far as I am aware he makes no claim to being a Christian but he is more than happy to work free of charge to help establish this ministry. God is good!
Shortly after the site went live we received an email from a lady.
“We were praying for a holiday but did not know how we could afford it because we have two cats. Your site is an answer to our prayers. We will now arrange our dates and then you can list our house. Thank you.”
As I said God is good!
More exciting stories to follow. Come back soon.
