VBS Sunday

CONCRETE and CRANES, building our Faith on Christ our Cornerstone! This has become one of Andrew’s favorite songs, and he will burst out singing this without warning! Where did he learn it from? Northside’s Vacation Bible School! Building our faith upon Christ is the basis for this year’s theme, and is drawn from Philipians 1:6, “I am sure of this, that he who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

While we are still under strict quarantine measures here in Colombia and we have only been out a handful of times since March, we have had a wonderful chance to forget about that. During the month of August we enjoyed being a part of Indianapolis’s Northside Baptist Church ( for Vacation Bible School.

Our family participated online like most families but were encouraged to see families participating in-person as well. It is a hopeful reminder that things will soon be normal again, and how incredible it will be in heaven when we are all reunited with all of the redeemed saints from the beginning until the end. Imagine how big of a stadium that will be to hold all of us!

As the families learned about our IMB missionaries, Northside Baptist included our family too as we serve with Samaritan’s Purse in Colombia. It was exciting to welcome the children on the first night and share a bit about our ministry here in Cucuta.

This Sunday, August 30th, is Vacation Bible School Sunday at Northside. We encourage all to join in person at 10:30 or online.

Our family will be sharing a special video Sunday morning. If you are unable to be there you will find a link later in the week on our website.

This Sunday the church will announce the winner between the boys and the girls for who collected the most change during VBS to donate to our family ministry.

You can also donate at.

Please make a note in the memo The Whites/VBS and Girl or Boy. Of course Benjamin and Andrew want the Boys to win. It is FUN for all of us!

We thank you for your donations this month for VBS2020!

Sharing in Jesus Name.
