Hi everyone! My oh my it’s been a while since our last post. EEESH! However, God has been so faithful to us. We are clicking along down here in Eleuthera. Ministry is going well at Winderemere High School. Ryan teaches four days a week, and I teach once a week, slowly easing my way back […]
Well, the summer has been over for a few weeks now. Sorry that this last Summer Update is coming a little late, but it’s been a whirlwind of excitement around here.

We have absolutely adored all of the mission teams this year – but we were so excited to host our home church during week 6 this summer. FBC Frisco is the church that Ryan grew up in and it’s where we both attended church as a young married couple when we moved to Frisco after […]
We just keep truckin’ along this summer! This week, we welcomed back the mission team from Bethel Baptist Church in Alabama. This is the second mission team Bethel has sent to Eleuthera, and we were so excited to have them back. We made some great friendships during their first visit, and we were thilled to […]

We had such a WONDERFUL kickoff to our summer mission teams! We started off construction efforts at Windermere High School, we began Bible Clubs throughout the Island, and we were filled up by some loving people serving from Golden Corner Church in South Carolina.
We’ve got a large to-do list this summer, and the […]
Much has happened since the last time we updated you guys! We’ve enjoyed having Young Life at our house and Jennie and Sarah’s house. It has felt so comfortable and cozy having Bible study outside of the school for the students and for us too. We continue to enjoy community with the teenagers at Windermere. […]
We are so excited about what God is doing in Eleuthera and in our family! Recently, on December 17th, 2014, God blessed our family with little Hannah Rose Yates! She is a healthy little girl and is adjusting quite well to the Eleuthera weather.
