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.

- Bob & Paula Yost Newsletter (Winter 2019) February 18, 2019 Dear Family and Friends, Change is in the air! Since we wrote our last newsletter, many things have changed at Teen Missions. As we look forward to a new year, we pray that we might change and become more the people that God would have us to be. It is easy to stay in the familiar, to not step out to try new things, to say that “we’ve always done it this way”; it is not easy to when you are ...
- Bob & Paula Yost Newsletter (Fall 2018) October 18, 2018 Dear Family and Friends, It’s hard to believe that it is officially fall with temperatures in the 80’s and 90’s and the ever-present humidity. But that is what the calendar tells us! Looking back on our summer, we had a different kind of summer with very little travel. As we mentioned in our last newsletter, when our original team to Tanzania was cancelled, we were placed on the Forest Angels Team that stayed on the property. Even though the short stay in ...
