My birthday wish

Happy Birthday to Me

Today, as you may have gathered , is my birthday. I have noticed it falls on this same date every year which makes remembering much easier.

Thank you to everyone who sent me cards, emails and greetings.

I was surprised when I went to Google this morning to see that they even had a special Google Doodle for me. That is a first.

What do I want for my birthday?  To explain my wish let me first give some background.

As regular readers will know Marilyn and I run a website called Christian House Sitters. This provides rent-free vacations for Christians all over the world and also provides Christians who will look after your home and pets while you are away free of charge. You can read more just CLICK HERE

We run the site for a couple of reasons. To provide a valuable service to other Christians who could otherwise not afford a vacation and also to provide urgently needed funds for the Christian Children’s Home that we run in Kenya. All income from the site goes to these desperately needy children. To read more CLICK HERE

Now back to my birthday. What do I really want?

I want people to consider sponsoring a child at the home or to consider making an occasional donation towards this wonderful ministry.

Without additional support many of these lovely children will die! Some of the children

With your support we can accommodate, feed, educate and look after them in a safe Christian environment. We can take care of their medical needs and be a real blessing.

Please will you prayerfully consider helping us. That would be a fantastic birthday present and an answer to prayer. If you click the link above to read about the home you will find a sponsorship and a donation button at the bottom of the page.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

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
