The White Family – Uganda
White Family – East Africa Outreach
We have been married for 11 years and have three children; Cadance, Noah and Aletheia!
I(Brian), have a BS in Communications from Liberty University and an MA in Biblical Counseling from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. I have been in vocational ministry since 2001. Jerilyn has a BA in Biblical Studies from Southeastern College. She has served alongside of me in ministry for our entire relationship. She currently home schools our kids (and tries to keep me straight!)
In 2008, I led my first trip to Uganda to serve with East Africa Outreach. I went on to lead three more trips with Jerilyn by my side. In Summer 2014 our entire family stayed for three months. The Lord used this extended time with our kids and the Nesters to confirm that we were to join East Africa Outreach full-time.
How Can I Help?
We are currently seeking partners in ministry to help us carry out the Lord’s vision for us in East Africa. Thank you for prayerfully considering joining our team!
Child Sponsorship - Nzigu
For just $25 a month, you can help a child receive an excellent education that will not only better their future, but could change their eternity. Many of these children are from Mulsim homes, live with relatives, or are orphans. They have no way to pay for their school fees. Could you be the one to make a difference in their lives?
$25 a month will cover their school fees, uniforms, Saturday discipleship program and lunch each school day.
