Teresa Lynn Hoyt

Teresa Lynn Hoyt, age 48, of San Saba, Texas stepped into the loving arms of Jesus on June 29, 2018, while fulfilling the ministry He called her to do, as she actively did all the days of her life. Teresa and her husband, Deryl Hoyt, have been active members of The Father's House for over 20 years, passionately investing into The Rock children’s ministry and Cross Roads' youth group. Her children and family took precedence over all other interests in her life, but she had a deep affection for all living animals and enjoyed all of God's creations. All animals were naturally drawn to her and she could grow almost anything. Teresa had a passion and enthusiasm for photography, nature and the outdoors. Teresa was completely transformed by the realization of God's relentless love for her, so she worshipped, prayed and studied God's Word daily. Her cup was overflowing, so she continually poured God’s love into others tirelessly.
