Don’t be jealous. You too could experience this.

As I looked out of the bedroom window this morning I looked at the lovely garden. The picture only shows about a third of the garden. It is almost like having a private park. What a blessing.

Just looking at it helped me to unwind.

No, it is not my garden. We are house sitting while the home owners are away on a vacation.

Out of interest, I looked online a few minutes ago and a house like this, in this area and at this time would normally be rented out for around £180 ($230) per night. We will be here for 20 nights so if we were renting it would have cost us about  £3,600  ($4,660).

So how much are we paying?  Nothing at all!!!

What do we get for that? A 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom house with someone who comes once a week to look after the grounds and a team of cleaners who also come once a week.

What do we need to do in return for staying here? Put out food in the bird feeders for the wild birds, water a few indoor plants and keep the house safe by keeping it occupied.

Now, in all honesty, not all houses made available through Christian House Sitters are to this standard. Most don’t have a team of cleaners or a gardener. Many will expect you to look after pets BUT in return, you get to live in a house not a stuffy, noisy, impersonal hotel room and you get it rent – free.

We have houses available all over the world.

So how can you enjoy somewhere like this? Simply register as a house sitter. It only costs £25 per year (all of which goes to support vulnerable children in a Children’s Home in Kenya) That is your only expense apart from your food and transport.

Ahh, but what if you are the home owner needing someone to look after your home and possibly your pets. Great! Register with us free of charge and we will try to find you a suitable sitter.

All the details about being a house sitter and getting a sitter for your home are on our website.

So in summary:

Christian House Sitters offers rent-free vacation accommodation to our members all over the world and if you need someone to look after your home and pets while you are away we can help there as well by finding someone suitable who will do it free of charge.

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.
