Yost, Bob & Paula


Meet the Yosts

Bob and Paula Yost both came from California to the staff of Teen Missions Int’l. at different times. Bob arrived in 1989 and brought Paula to Florida in 1990 as his new bride. Bob had been a forest ranger and Paula a dietician.

Bob growing up with a Presbyterian minister for a father had a significant impact in experiencing missionaries right in his own home. Whenever a missionary visited the church, they would have them over to the house. Bob learned to enjoy the excitement of mission work in his growing up years. This mission dedication led him to short term trips throughout the East Coast, Arizona and down into Mexico. Thus the transition into full-time mission work seemed the natural route to pursue. During the 1980’s, Bob and his church body began praying where the Lord wanted him to serve. Bob talked to his work supervisor about his desire to go into full-time missions. Being a godly man, Carl became one of Bob’s prayer partners. In July of 1985, the Lord led Bob away from the US Forest Service and into the mission field. There have been many bumps along the way as he received training, Bible classes and served at a Deaf Ranch in Baja California, Mexico. But all along he knew that the Lord Jesus Christ was in full control.

Currently, Bob Yost serves in the Literature Warehouse collating and packing literature for all of the Overseas and the U.S. Boot Camps. Paula serves in the Finance Department, which keeps her very busy. They also lead tours of the Old Testament Tabernacle. Bob enjoys singing Tenor in several area choirs and doing solo work; he also collects coins, bills, and stamps. Paula enjoys sewing, reading, working in the yard and leading a women’s Bible study.

Prayer Requests

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
