I am excited to announce that each month, I will be posting about someone who is making a difference in the lives of others. This month, I am pleased to introduce you to Ray and Marilyn White and their Kenya Children’s Home Ministry…
Welcome, Ray and Marilyn, it’s great to have you here! Can you please tell us about your ministry?
Christian House Sitters is a worldwide ministry that was set up in order to make a difference to people’s lives.
It helps 3 different groups of people.
Christians who want to take a vacation and need someone to look after their home and or pets can register free of charge as home owners.
Christians who need a break can register can register as House Sitters.
CHS seeks to put the two halves together.
As a result hundreds of Christians all over the world who could not afford a vacation have been enabled to take a break and see other countries.
Wow! What a worthwhile idea! Can you tell us a bit more?
House Sitters pay a nominal fee of £25 per year for their membership but this NOT a business it is a Ministry and 100% of this money goes to help feed and look after children at the Home of Peace Christian Children’s Home in Kenya. The cost of running the site is covered by Ray & Marilyn White who set it up.
So we make a difference to people needing a vacation, to people who need someone to look after their home and pets while they are on vacation and in the process we feed, accommodate and educate 85 children who would otherwise be living on the street or would die of starvation.
What a wondeful way to make a difference! Can you give us a summary?
HOUSE SITTERS. Benefit by being able to have short or long breaks in their own country or abroad. Their only expense will be the actual cost of travelling to and from the destination. They will know that they are helping another Christian and that when they arrive they will be introduced to the home owners Church and Christian friends.
HOUSE OWNERS. Benefit from being able to leave their home and animals in the care of a Christian having confidence that they will love the animals and care for the property honestly. They will also know that you are helping another Christian to have a vacation.
They have the added security of being able to ask prospective House Sitters for a reference from their Church leaders.
Using this service they are able to make contact with potential sitters and prayerfully select the right person or people.
There is no charge to the owners.
