About Us

We are Roy, Angela, Nathan and Luke Verrips, a Christian family living in Naperville, Illinois for about 3 and half years now. We are originally from South Africa, but spent almost 15 years living as a family in the Middle East.


We moved from Dubai towards then end of 2016, where we lived for most of our time in the gulf, but in between a few moves within Dubai, we have also lived a year in Abu Dhabi, and two years in Doha, Qatar. We are a bible believing Christian family who strive to put God at the center of our household.


We are currently seeking membership at Naperville Presbyterian Church. We pray and trust that God will continue to strengthen us in His mercy and grace, and that we may be a blessing to those He brings across our path.


Our God is a gracious and merciful God!


Yours in Him

The Verrips Family

Angela

Nathan

Nathan is currently a student at College of DuPage pursuing an Associates Degree in Science which, but God's grace, is the first step on his path into optometry/ophthalmology. He also keeps busy editing and updating a number of Christian websites linked below:

Rachel

Rachel VerripsRachel was born in March 2004 with CMV (i.e. Cytomegalo Virus) – She had chronic hepatitides and severe jaundice from birth that eventually lead to complete liver failure, and she went to be with our Lord in November 2004.
Her constant smile touched everyone it fell upon and we are honoured that God shared her with us and made her part of our family, even for such a short time.

Luke

Luke VerripsLuke is fourteen years old and loves spending time with people, especially when they can talk through serious things like game theory and strategy (and sometimes just silly things too). Like his brother, Nathan, Luke loves strategy games, board games and role-playing games. The two of them are in various clubs and online groups and leagues. When it comes to video games, Luke only has a single-minded passion, TitanFall 2. Luke does stream a bit and you can see his endeavors on YouTube as linked below.

What we Believe
