Baghdad Hotel

Posted on

Bagdad Hotel near Siaya, Kenya

Last time I was in Kenya to visit the Children’s Home that Christian House Sitters supports we drove past the Baghdad Hotel. I had to stop and take a photograph. I can only assume that you are able to rent the room in the picture for your vacation.

I am delighted to say that although Christian House Sitters is growing at a wonderful rate and we have been able to offer our members rent-free vacations all over the world. (We have had homes in New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, America, Argentina, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, France, Italy, Spain and Portugal.)  We have never been offered anything resembling the Baghdad Hotel.

Sadly to date neither the Queen of England nor the President of the USA have signed up as home owners (can’t think why, must be an oversight) so we sadly also can’t offer either Buckingham Palace or the White House.

But some of the houses we have offered are fantastic. To give a flavour here are pictures from a small selection of recently listed houses.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Remember these were made available to our members rent-free.

So next time you are planning a vacation why not save yourself a load of money. Register as a House Sitter and enjoy a rent-free vacation in a beautiful house.

Or if you need someone to look after your home and pets while you are away then you can register as a Home Owner (free will not cost you anything)

You can read all about it oon our website CLICK HERE

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 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. Feel free to contact us (BUT please no spam) NOTE: If you want a fast reply the best way to contact us is via the contact page on the Christian House Sitters website www.christian-housesitters.com God bless you, Ray & Marilyn
