Bekah (Zello) Snyder ’09

Alumni Ministry Update

After graduating from FCS in 2009, Bekah attended Liberty University where she majored in Spanish and minored in Psychology and Sociology. Bekah’s passion has always been overseas missions, largely because of the experiences she had in Uruguay with FCS as a high schooler. It was while working in an orphanage in Guatemala during a post graduate internship that she found a desire to pursue counseling in order to be more effective on the mission field. 

Bekah went on to get her Masters in Clinical Counseling at Liberty and entered the counseling field while her husband, James, studied Aviation at Liberty. Bekah then earned her License in Professional Counseling in the state of VA and went into school-based counseling for the next 4 years. James and Bekah married in 2015 and welcomed their son, Coleman, in 2019. They are currently expecting their second son at the end of the month!

Over the past two years, James and Bekah have felt the Lord tugging on their hearts to pursue missions and applied to Mission Aviation Fellowship. In 2020, they took a giant leap of faith and went through necessary testing and were accepted as missionaries with the organization. They have recently been placed in Haiti and are now working on building up their support team!

James and Bekah are now currently working full-time with Mission Aviation Fellowship. It is their goal to be fully funded by May 2022, and off to Haiti by August 2022. 

Bekah gives credit to Mrs. Ferguson and Mrs. Racheau for pouring into her spiritually – not just instilling a love for Spanish, but taking the time to disciple her and foster a love for missions.

Please join us in praying for Bekah and her family as they trust the Lord to build their support team and for a healthy delivery of their second baby boy who is due at the end of September.
