Funny, false advertisements

Have you ever been caught out by false advertising claims?

We see them all the time. Recently in the UK there has been a lot of publicity around many financial products that were wrongly promoted. This has ended up costing banks a fortune and their reputation.

We have also seen a large public outcry about false claims of the speed you can expect from your broadband provider.

With this in mind I decided to look around for some funnier examples of false advertising.

Golden Retreiver

The one below may not be false. But it is equally not giving a fair description.


Here is an accurate advert that gave me a laugh

Shoe Sale

Finally we have all seen the glossy pictures advertising wonderful vacation locations

Secluded Beach


Only to discover on arrival that it was not quite what we expected.

Actual Beach

At Christian House Sitters we do not believe in making false or inflated claims. Our offer is really simple. Christian House Sitters is a ministry that started in order to provide rent-free vacations for Christians and reliable House Sitters for home owners who need someone they can trust 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 many enjoy numerous rent-free vacations each year.

By becoming a registered House sitter you will benefit by being able to have short or long breaks in your own country or abroad.
Your only expense will be the actual cost of travelling to and from the destination and your food.
You will know that you are helping another Christian to have a break and that when you arrive you will be introduced to their Church and Christian friends.
Naturally it is entirely up to you to decide if you want to get involved or not.

Home owners benefit from being able to leave their home and animals in the care of a Christian who they have confidence will love the animals and care for you property honestly.
They will also know that they are helping another Christian to have a holiday.
They have the added security of being able to ask prospective House Sitters for a reference from their Church leaders.
As a result they can go away without having to worry about their home and animals.
In the UK having a pet sitter to look after pets costs an average of £200 per week. The majority of us can’t afford that.
Also if you hire a sitter through an agency they select the person. You have no idea who you are letting into your home.
Using this service you are able to make contact with potential sitters and prayerfully select the right person or persons.

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
