How the other half live

How the other half live.
Burning Money
I have just been reading an article in Business Insider about where the rich spend their vacations. Fascinating article but left me with a rather sour taste thinking how much some people squander.

Yes the places look wonderful but the price brings tears to my eyes. On Christian House Sitters we offer fabulous vacations but I freely admit we can’t compete with these however when it comes to price we are much better. Our places are RENT FREE. I have copied the details of a few of the places listed so you can see for yourself what the ultra rich spend and then later you can see what we offer free of charge.

Chateau le Camarguais. Carpentras, France
French Chateau in the heart of the Rhône Valley, capable of sleeping 32 guests
Conference facility, business centre, sports complex, and an outdoor swimming pool.
The property is completely enclosed by surrounding parkland

Rate: $45,044 – $62,368 per week

Zephyr Palace. Costa Rica
Situated atop a 350 ft. mountain overlooking the Pacific Ocean
Access to private beach, gym, infinity pool, jacuzzi, spa, and golf course
Region known for its colourful flocks of scarlet macaws

Rate: $65,100 per week

Isla de sa Ferradura. Spain
14-acre private island in the Mediterranean, off the coast of Ibiza, Spain

If you can afford those rates and you believe that is a wise use of your money than we are not the service for you. But if you would like a rent free vacation have a look at our website. CLICK HERE

Ah yes I hear someone saying but what sort of a dump would I get free of charge?

Not a dump I assure you. below are just 3 examples of houses we have available right now. We get a wide range of houses. Some simple, some modern, some older and some that are simply fabulous and all are FREE.

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
