About T.L.C. Children’s Trust

This charity was started by Marilyn & Ray White after they became involved with the Home of Peace Children’s Home in Kenya

At that time they were running a ministry called Christian House Sitters and because of the real need in Kenya they took the decision to donate all income from Christian House Sitters to the Home of Peace.

God has blessed and this has now become an official UK registered charity. Charity Number 1156786

As with any registered charity we have a group of Trustees who oversee the work and carefully scrutinize the financial records every month but on a day to day basis the work is done by Ray & Marilyn.


We are Marilyn & Ray White. A fun loving Christian couple who have been in Christian work for over 40 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 before joining the staff of Youth for Christ in South Africa. He later studied at the Rosebank Bible College and at the Baptist Theological College of SA before becoming a church Pastor.

In 1982 we moved from South Africa to England.

In addition to his theological training Ray trained in Psychology (BA Hon. MSc. PhD.) and since moving to the UK he has lectured in Psychology, counselled for the NHS and we opened a Christian Counselling Centre which we ran for 18 years. We also trained over 800 people to Accredited Counsellor Standard. many are serving God all over the UK.

Marilyn is also a trained counsellor, a specialist children’s counsellor, a counselling supervisor and a business manager.

We also ran a secular Stress Management business.

We are now officially retired and focus our time and attention on this charity, Home of Peace Children’s Home, Christian House Sitters and Ray also has an active ministry preaching at various churches and running seminars by invitation.

Ray served as a member of our Church Leadership Team for many years until we recently moved from Sussex to Somerset.

He has written three books.

The latest was published in Nov 2014 and is available from all branches of Amazon and as a Kindle download.
