Have thought about getting away but are not sure how to swing the bill? Maybe you have thought about taking a trip for a change of scenery but your available budget won’t get you very far? Wouldn’t it be great in these crazy economic times to be able to afford a little change of pace for a while? Here’s a thought, maybe you should try a home exchange. Home exchange is fast gaining popularity as alternative way of vacationing with all the comforts of being home without the astronomical costs of a hotel and meals out. Are you looking for a ministry exchange or maybe a clergy sabbatical instead of a traditional vacation? Would you enjoy experiencing a new faith community, as well as a home, in a different part of the world. There are programs that are available to Christians around the world. One such program worthy of checking into is the Christian Home Exchange. They are a service of St. Hans Ministry Exchange, Inc., a nonprofit organization promoting vacation home exchanges and recognized in the USA as a tax-exempt organization. With the Christian Home Exchange you are encouraged to worship in each other’s church. You can invite your friends and neighbors to welcome and bond with your exchange partners. What an impact this can make on your spiritual journey. It is also an excellent way to both enjoy a vacation but stay within a manageable budget. This could also be eye-opening in many ways. Why not let your family discover an appreciation for both new places as well as for what is waiting back at home. If this vacation option holds some appeal it is really simple to proceed. Just visit the Christian Home Exchange website and sign up. Before you know it you and your family will be off to a new adventure in the best possible way.
