Welcome to the website of Rex and Priscilla White
God loves you and has a plan for your life!
In the New Testament of the HoIy Bible, I Peter 3:15 says "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have." We have the hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord, who offers salvation to all who call upon Him. All believers have a unique story of how they came to call themselves Christians. That story is called a testimony, and telling that story to others who ask is part of what we are called upon to do as Christians. Here are our testimonies "in a nutshell":
Rex's testimony: "I was blessed to have a godly mother and grandmother who raised me to believe in God and pray. I grew up in Kane, PA and my father left our family when I was very young. He was in and out of jail, and at times my mom, my brother and I had to struggle to survive. Sometimes my Mom didn't know where her next dime was coming from, but God always came through. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior at a very early age: only 7 years old. I learned to play the guitar also at that time, and one of my earliest memories is playing "I'll Fly Away" in front of the little Pentecostal church where I went as a child. I could barely see over the railing of the platform I was on but when I had a guitar in my hands I was happy! I always wanted to use music to praise the Lord. As I grew older, I didn't stray too far from God. This was during the 1970s and 1980s, when so many were destroyed by using drugs and alcohol, but God spared me from all that. Not that I was perfect...no, far from it. I was married and divorced twice before I found the right person for me. I regret making mistakes and I had to ask for and receive God's forgiveness for them, but praise God, I was blessed with 3 wonderful kids and now have the joy of having wonderful grandchildren also. If you turn to God and ask Him what to do, He will guide you and turn your heartaches into joy. My greatest joy is making music for the Lord, and I'm thankful for every opportunity that I have to do that. I prayed for and God brought me a wife who is a guitar player, singer and songwriter, and together we love singing His praises. I look forward to Heaven, where we will be praising God and making a "joyful noise" to Him for all eternity! If you are going through a hard time, pray and ask God to guide you. Remember: the lights of Heaven are always on!"
Pris's Testimony: I also went to church all my life. My 2 brothers and 2 sisters and I were raised by wonderful parents as members of the Presbyterian church in North East, PA. My parents were Sunday School teachers and they believed in prayer and giving to the poor. I remember going to church camp every summer and hearing the Gospel from the time I was very young. I learned to play the guitar as a young teen, and it was at that time (in the 1960's) I got caught up in the culture of the time, protest songs and political demonstrations. Over time I walked completely away from God, believing that either He didn't exist or that He was far away and not concerned about us. In my teens and early 20's I experimented with drugs, alcohol and unhealthy relationships. My life was on a downward spiral. I had always been overweight and my self-esteem was poor. At a very low time in my life, my aunt passed away and I went to the funeral. I remember the preacher reading the words: "I am the Resurrection and the Life". I felt a tugging at my heartstrings. A few weeks later, I met my first husband, Warren. He was an Episcopal priest and college professor and had recently started attending charismatic prayer meetings. He invited me to go with him and I knew as soon as I walked in the door that I belonged there. I soon re-dedicated my life to God and received the "baptism of the Holy Spirit". Warren and I were married a few months later and we served the Lord together in ministry in the Episcopal church for over 18 years. He passed away from complications of diabetes and heart disease in 1993, leaving me with our young son to raise. I was uncertain what direction God wanted me to go in, but I didn't doubt that He had something for me to do. I went to nursing school, which I believed was another way God wanted me to serve. In 1995, I met Rex White singing at an assisted living home where I was working as activities director. We sang together and right away we knew that we belonged together. We married a few days after I graduated from nursing school in 1996. Since then we have been singing, writing songs and playing our music together. We love praising the Lord and serving Him with music. We turn to God for wisdom, for inspiration and for peace. He has never failed us.
