9) Do you Travel? Need a Place to Stay for Free? :-)

Then try “A Candle in the Window” network…


The tag line reads, “Meet new people, make lifelongfriends, Enjoy great conversational dinners, Stay free when traveling.” Sound too good to be true? Not so. It’s for real. The service if free for Missionaries. Check it out… and thanks to the Candle in the Window people for your heart for global workers! (In case you’re wondering, members in closed countries are not identified as missionaries but as “charter members,” the free membership we make available to the first household in each state or foreign country.)

1) On Your Next Home Service: Visit a Minnesota Lakeside Getaway —

Lakeside Christian Church offers a sweet 2 bedroom walk-out apartment right on a lovely Minnesota lake at an affordable rent to missionaries and other Christian workers in transition.  Learn more at …



Click on “Serving You”, then “Living Waters Missionary Housing”. (And thanks to these folks for pitching in to Brigada this past week — and by doing so, they received top #1-spot billing.)

11) Save money on hotels / Make money by renting rooms —

Brigada participant, Mark, told us this past week about a new service that offers rented rooms online:




On this site you can list your house for rent without cost. They connect homeowners or second-home owners who are away with willing renters. Pay by credit card that gets credited only if you are satisfied with your stay. If you are traveling for work or holiday consider being a renter.  Homeowners rent out entire apartments, homes and even extra rooms. Mark says the one-year old website out of Switzerland is very user-friendly and safe. So, say goodbye to Motel 6 and say hello to a new house-on-the-way!

2) And a Great place for Missionaries to Stay in Comfort (Texas)

Yes, this is the *true* Comfort inn… Comfort, Texas, that is. This tip came from the same truly warm-hearted folks mentioned above. They recently stayed at Haven River Inn in Comfort, TX (40 min. outside San Antonio). This beautiful bed and breakfast on the Guadalupe River offers two nights free to pastors and missionaries, and with 14 rooms, plus a separate 3 bedroom cottage, it’s a lovely setting for a group retreat as well.  The staff was very kind and gracious.  Take a look at


Shew. Love it.
