Dave & Becci Snyder
Dave & Becci Snyder - Petatlan Mexico
Dave and Becci Snyder were called to Mexico over 40 years ago. Specifically they received clarity from God to work on the southern coast of the state of Guerrero. The natural beauty of the area is stunning with miles of sandy beaches, crystal blue waves and coconut palms waving in the breeze off of the Pacific Ocean. Although tourism, the mining of silver and the sale of silver jewelry would suggest a vibrant economy the reality is heartbreakingly apparent. This state is amongst the poorest states in Mexico as well as suffering with high ratios of school drop out and low literacy. Unfortunately crime is rampant and the crops raised in the mountains are not beneficial to any country but rather a curse. Amongst this strong, proud and beautiful people we share Jesus the only enduring hope of all the Earth.
Mike Tonn - West Africa
Michael was born and raised in Fond du Lac county. After a few career changes that included the military and practicing law, God drew him into cross-cultural missions. Having joined Pioneer Bible Translators in 2021, Michael then earned a master’s degree in Intercultural Studies, with emphasis on Scripture Engagement. He is about to launch overseas for French language learning, and then to his permanent field home. Michael is preparing to serve with Pioneer Bible Translators as a church planter in West Africa. His goal is to see a movement of churches following Jesus, using translated Scripture to grow, mature, and multiply disciples who train more disciples. He gets excited when people take God’s Word and plant it deep in their souls! “For the joy of the LORD is our strength.”
