The choice is yours.

People are looking for ways to save money on everything and that includes the cost of having a vacation.

In a report published 3 days ago in Out and About it was reported that  Over the Bank Holiday weekend, the Camping and Caravanning Club recorded almost 20,000 campers on  site across its 109 UK sites. The article goes on to say  Figures from the Office of National Statistics indicate that last year 5.4 million camping and  caravanning trips were taken compared with just 4.9 million B&B stays. Results for 2011 are expected to show an even wider gap as the nation seeks to find cheaper ways to holiday. (

Cooking on camp fire

I can really understand the appeal. We have enjoyed some delightful camping trips in the past.

But to be honest we have also endured some other camping trips huddled up in a tent with the wind howling, the rain pelting down and toilets located on the far side of a muddy field.

I now prefer the comfort of staying in a house with hot and cold running water, electricity, TV, comfortable beds and a real kitchen to prepare the food.

Below are a few pictures of houses we have recently had available for our members.

But with camping you can enjoy the great outdoors.

True but if that is what you want you can choose a housesit that is in the great outdoors. Like this one we had available.

But what about the cost?

Because we do it through Christian House Sitters it costs less that camping. In fact it is FREE.

Which would you prefer?

Paying to stay in a tent or living rent-free in a lovely house.

We have houses all over the world.

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.
