A good laugh (And some answers)

dog on vacationTaking a vacation can be a real blessing but sadly as we all know there are times when it can go badly wrong.

The accommodation is not up to your expectation.

A man arrived at his holiday guest-house and met the landlady.
‘Can you sing?’ she asked.
‘No,’ he replied.
‘Well, you’d better learn quickly. There’s no lock on the bathroom door.’

Or what about this one?

A holidaymaker was complaining to his landlady about his room. ‘Look. This wall’s so thin you can almost see through it.’
‘That’s not a wall,’ she replied, ‘it’s the window.’

The food that you paid to have included in your vacation costs is somewhat disappointing as the following guest found.

‘Excuse me,’ said the guest, ‘but this steak is so tough I can’t even cut it. Take it away and bring me another.’
‘I can’t take it away,’ said the landlady. ‘You’ve bent it.’

The weather lets you down badly

A man was telling his friends about his recent vacation.  What a week it was. Only rained twice – once for three days, once for four.

We can help with some of these.

When you arrange a vacation through Christian House Sitters you will know exactly what accommodation to expect. It will not be a dingy room but a whole house. You will have seen pictures and chatted to the owner personally. Any questions will have been clarified before your arrive. So no disappointments.

With Christian House Sitters you do not pay a fee that includes your meals instead your rent-free accommodation includes the full use of a kitchen where you can prepare your food just the way you like it. Or using the money you saved by having a rent-free vacation you can choose to go to a variety of different restaurants

As for the weather. I would like to say we have that covered as well but sorry there are some things we can’t control. But because you will have had personal contact with the owners before agreeing the house sit you can ask them what the weather is normally like at that time of the year.

Remember with Christian House Sitters your vacation is rent-free, you will be looking after the home of a Christian who is away and so as well as having a great time you are also being a blessing to someone else.

We have houses available throughout the world. New properties keep getting added. It is exciting to see how God so often provides the perfect house for the specific needs of our sitters.

God bless you,



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 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.
