Thank You

Posted on

Time to say thank you to some people.

Many of you kindly contacted me with very encouraging and positive comments after my last blog post. Thanks that is always an encouragement. (If you missed the last post you read it easily by clicking the link to the post called Wonderful Exciting Progress)

A couple of days ago I received an email from a couple who are registered with us as House Sitters. Their email said “Hello Ray, Just a note to let you know that the stay was everything we hoped and prayed for. …… we have come back physically and spiritually refreshed. Thanks so much for this work. “

They had just returned from a house sit arranged through Christian House Sitters. It is lovely to hear from people who have been able to enjoy a much-needed break through our service. This couple were able to travel to a different country, stay in a lovely home and as they said they benefitted both physically and spiritually and it was rent-free as are all our houses.

Thank YouI also received a letter from one of our home owners saying “… what a tremendous blessing your service had been enabling us to go away without having to spend a lot of money on putting our dogs in kennels, our cats in a cattery and then worrying that the animals were ok and that our house was safe. As a result we had more money to spend while away and we had a better, more relaxed time.”

Finally I received an email from the Administrator at the Children’s Home we support in Kenya. (Remember 100% of the income to Christian House Sitters goes to support these vulnerable children. He wrote saying ‘ Please say thank you to all your members. Because of them our children eat well and are happy.”

So this is just a short blog post to sat thanks to everyone for your encouragement.

We would like to serve you as well

We can help you enjoy a Rent Free Vacation and we can help find someone to look after your home and pets while you are away. Free of charge.

Share this opportunity with your friends, your family, your church and be a blessing to them. Full details on our website www.Christian-housesitters.com

God bless you,

Ray

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
