Patricia J. Frost
Pat, an emeritus missionary, lives at the Martha Franks Baptist Retirement Community in Laurens, SC. For 35 years, she was a single missionary employed by the International Mission Board, SBC. She experienced God’s call to serve Him as a career missionary while in high school.
Pat grew up in a small rural community in western Arkansas. She first developed a relationship with God and turned her life over to Him in her hometown church. She learned that God is in control and everything happens for a reason.
During the summers at university and seminary, she was a summer missionary; first in Oregon on the coast, teaching in vacation Bible schools and doing survey work for the churches. The next summer, she was on a team of students appointed to work in Queens, New York City. The following summer she worked in southern California, and the summer after that in an inner-city church in Columbus, Ohio. Such varied experiences in widely differing places helped prepare her for overseas career missions.
