Vacation Embarrassment

Thanks for the lovely comments on my last blog post featuring pictures of recent houses on the Christian House Sitters website.

I felt it was time for a smile and as I was wondering what to write about one of our members sent me the following story. I have no idea where it originally comes from so if it is yours and copyright please accept my apology and let me know so I can remove it.

CAMPING STORY…

A few years back I went on vacation with the family. We were in a very very small travel trailer that looked something like the one that Goofy pulls behind his car in the DiGoofy & Micky on Vacationsney cartoon.

Anyway, it was late and I was tired of driving, I happened to see a large parking lot that was vacant and decided to pull in and set up camp for the night.

It was a Saturday night and I figured that what ever parking lot and building this was, no one would be using it on  Sunday morning. So, I parked and unhooked the trailer and set up camp. By morning I had all the camping gadgets set up, gas grill, lawn chairs, trash can ect.

However, at about 10.30am, a line of cars started to poor into the parking lot and people dressed up in tuxedos and long dresses began to get out and walk right next to my camp and enter the front door of the building that I was parked right in front of.

Out of all the times and all the places, I happened to set up camp in front of the main entrance for a high school graduation!   Hiding face

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.
