Join Peter in the Bahamas as he interviews Billy and Leah Slater at their kitchen table!
The Slaters were both called individually—Leah in ’94 and Billy in ’95— to serve God in the Bahamas nearly thirty years ago, neither knowing exactly what would happen when they left their hometown in Wisconsin.
Hear about the work they started out with at the Adventure Learning Center and Ranfurly Home for Children, how they went from friends to sweethearts, and how their home, “The Castle,” became a transitional home to help teens and young adults.
As Billy and Leah share the work they’ve been doing and the life they’ve been living in a place most think of as tropical bliss, we get to see “the flipside of paradise,” as Leah calls it; the people they’ve come alongside, the day-to-day challenges, but also the encouragements.
Start small, start where you’re at, get involved, and see what happens.
