  1. Hi!

    I am Bill an Audrey Ryan’s daughter. I absolutely love this blog and email. I am going to keep it handy so that I can revisit it time and time again. I was just a little girl in Tampa, Fla. where Pastor Yohner preached at a church we attended. I remember it as a very fervent mission minded church. We had dinner at Evy and Art’s house a couple of times, and just a few weeks before they set off to get prepared to go to Suriname. Ruthie was just very small maybe 5 years old or perhaps younger. She always loved to help out at home, and Art’s dad lived with them at the time. I remember their leaving was a bittersweet time for us.

    My youngest brother was named after Art. Arthur George Ryan.

    We think so much of Pastor Yohner an can look back at some of the good old days. What a wonderful man of God he is and Evy! They look like they had gotten blessing after blessing every day they ever served the Lord, and God has blessed all of you with a wonderful and growing family.

    Love to you all!

  2. Hi Ruthi!

    Give your mom a great big hug for us. Try to mention Bill and Audrey Ryan to your dad to see if he has any response to it.

    You know, I know how busy you are, so I don’t want you to feel obligated to answer all the comments I may send. It just feeds me spiritually knowing that I still have a connection to Pastor Art, Evy and you even if it’s through a blog! I am so gratelful for it!

    Lots of hugs and prayers!
