There are many things about running the Christian House Sitters web site that bless me. One of them is the way it is helping me to make friends with Christians all over the world.
This morning I received an email from a lady who lives in Australia. She wrote
We are heading to the Gold Coast for 2 weeks holiday in September and a house sitter for our little dog sounded perfect…. what a pity you aren’t based in Melbourne! Please let me know if you ever branch down under!
How lovely to be able to write back saying that we do indeed offer a House Sitting service in Australia. Because of the internet we can help folk no matter where they live.
Many of our members are becoming friends as well. They join then send me emails telling me about themselves. As a result I now have new friends in New Zealand, Australia, America, South Africa, England, Scotland and Wales. This after having the site up for only 2 months.
As Christians we often talk about the ‘Christian Family;’ we are all brothers and sisters in Christ. I am enjoying getting to know members of my Christian family I had never encountered before. And at the same time I am able to help them enjoy a better holiday.
I love my job.
God bless you,
