Help for Christian families during recession

We all know that the world is going through a period of serious international financial crisis.  As a result of the financial problems naturally many people are finding it increasingly difficult to afford a holiday.

We all love a holiday but it can be a nightmare. There is the expense, the concern about your house while you are away, worries about your animals finding suitable accommodation at the destination of your choice.

This is a problem as research has clearly shown that during times of severe stress holidays can be more important than ever and can help prevent many stress related health problems.

Christian House Sitters can help you overcome many of these problems giving you a better holiday with rent- free accommodation and offering peace of mind. Whilst at the same time you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are also helping other Christians and supporting a Christian Children’s Home in Kenya. As a house sitter your  only holiday expense will be the actual cost of travelling to and from the destination and your food.

If you are worried about leaving your home empty and therefore vulnerable or are concerned about what to do about your pets while you are away we can also help. By registering as a Home Owner (It is Free)  You benefit from being able to leave your home and animals in the care of a Christian who you have confidence will love the animals and care for you property honestly. You will also know that you are helping another Christian to have a holiday. You have the added security of being able to ask prospective House Sitters for a reference from their Church leaders. You can go away without having to worry about your home and animals.

So it is a win-win situation where both parties save a great deal of money and can therefore benefit form a much needed break that they may otherwise have been unable to afford.

This service has already helped many people from around the world and it is expected that as the credit crunch bites many more will benefit from this facility.

So if you feel the need to have a break but are having to watch that bank balance very carefully we may be able to help you have a far better holiday than you thought possible.

God bless you,

Ray

About housesitters

ABOUT Christian House Sitters Christian House Sitters is a Worldwide ministry that started in order to provide holidays for Christians and sitters for owners who needed a reliable Christian to look after their home, pets and garden. House owners do not pay anything to have their property listed. House sitters are only charged £25 per year and in return for this some enjoy numerous holidays each year. All fees from membership go to sponsor food for children at the Home of Peace Children’s Home in Kenya. This only supplies about a quarter of what is needed to feed the children so we urgently need sponsors. All funds go via our Registered Charity TLC Children’s Trust Charity Number 1156786 website http://www.tlc-childrenstrust.org N.B. Joining Christian House Sitters does NOT commit you to sponsoring a child or giving any support beyond your membership fee to these children. Although naturally if you want to support that would be greatly appreciated. We have some regular sponsors and other people who give an occasional gift. All are greatly appreciated. ABOUT RAY & MARILYN We are Marilyn & Ray White. A fun loving Christian couple who have been in Christian work for over 30 years. Marilyn was born in England but moved to Zimbabwe as a baby. At the age of 16 she moved to South Africa. Ray was born in South Africa and grew up on a farm. We met in Johannesburg and got married in 1966. Ray worked in business for many years then he worked for YfC in South Africa then went on to Bible College and Pastored a church. In 1982 we moved from South Africa to England. In addition to his theological training Ray trained in Psychology and since moving to the UK he has lectured in Psychology, counselled for the NHS and opened a Christian Counselling Centre. Marilyn is also a trained counsellor and manager. In addition to the counselling we trained Christian counsellors both in our local area and by invitation in other areas of the UK. In total over 700 people completed the training courses. Many are serving the Lord by working in or through their local churches. We also ran a secular Stress Management business. We are now semi-retired and focus our time and attention on Christian House Sitters and Ray also serves as a member of our Church Leadership Team. Ray also has an active preaching ministry and runs Christian seminars on subjects such as stress management for church groups. He has written two books. A Christian book that is a very practical workbook on Christian commitment as applied to real life. The book looks at how we can surrender ourselves more fully to God. This is looked at under the headings of Physical, Mental, Social and Spiritual commitment. The book is called Let’s Get Serious. He has also written a secular book on Stress Management called Stress Overcoming this Potential Killer. (Ray was previously Chair of the International Stress Management Association UK). News Update This book has now been released as an e-book as well A few years ago we did a 2 month House Sit in France. Whilst there we felt the Lord leading us to set up a Christian House Sitting service. Since then we have done a number of other house sits. We believe this site will benefit many Christians around the world.

  2. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and amusing,
    and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.
