Dentists and Our Vacation

I was chatting to a friend at church today and he said the financial crisis is so great even the ‘tooth fairy’ is leaving IOU’s

That bothered me because on Tuesday I am going to the dentist to have a lower back tooth extracted.

Now normally I would feel sorry for myself and expect loads of tender loving care from Marilyn but on Thursday she is going into the Guildford Hospital to have all her teeth removed. So my one extraction seems rather unworthy of making a fuss.

Many of you have been praying for Marilyn since I mentioned her health problems in this blog a few months ago. Thanks.

The reason for her dental problems at the moment is because of the poor health that she has suffered over the past couple of years. But with the very major abdominal surgery that she had in April and now her teeth removed we believe this is a turning point and she should soon be back in good health.

At the start of this post I mentioned the lack of funds in the ‘tooth fairy’ account. So it seems we will not be getting any payment for all these teeth but thanks to Christian House Sitters after Marilyn’s dental surgery we are off to have a lovely rent-free vacation in Cornwall. This should give her a real opportunity to heal and start regaining her strength. We love Cornwall but this will be our first time in Bude. It looks lovely from the pictures that I have seen online.

Even though we will be away the ministry of Christian House Sitters will not be disrupted. Where I go my computer follows.

So if you are interested in having a rent-free vacation have a look at our website. We have houses all over the world. The list keeps changing but today we have places as far apart as New Zealand, Australia, America and the UK.


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. 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 God bless you, Ray & Marilyn
