We just posted our Snyder World Missions Bookstore on Amazon! If you know of a current or future medical school student that may need some text books, direct them to the link above. All of our books are in great condition, and we made sure to have some of the lowest prices on the internet! The proceeds from these transactions go to help fund our trip to Tenwek! God bless you!

Dear Friends & Family,
As many of you know, we are endeavoring to go to the mission field this summer for the month of June. We feel that God is leading us to Tenwek Hospital. Tenwek is located 150 miles from Nairobi, in the Bomet District of Kenya’s Rift Valley Province. Tenwek has a website at http://www.tenwekhospital.org/ We will be departing on June 1st, and returning to the states on the 28th.
Please consider supporting us through prayer. We truly believe that there is power when God's people pray. This is the most important thing that we could ask you to do. Traveling abroad in today's cultural, political, and religious climate is dangerous, but we know that if you are praying, and God is going before us, we have nothing to fear! Join us in asking God to give you a sincere burden for the people of Kenya.
Melissa will have the opportunity to minister to the physical and spiritual needs of children that will be placed in the care of Tenwek. The hospital's motto for years has been “We Treat, Jesus Heals”, and we can't think of a better mission statement for a medical ministry than this! I (Jeff) will be working alongside the hospital, African Gospel Church, and missionaries to do various types of ministry work wherever I am needed.
This trip is something that we felt God calling us to do a few months ago. With Melissa still in residency, and paying off medical school bills, one of the first concerns was where we would be able to get the funds to go. I simply told Melissa that if God really wants us to go, then he would provide a way for us to do it. Philippians 4:6 tells us to “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” So we are believing and trusting God to provide our needs for His cause and glory.
Below on another blog post, you will find a budget for our trip. Will you prayerfully consider supporting us financially? 100 % of your gift will go toward this budget to help us make our journey there and back. The only true investment that we can make, in this life, is to invest in the souls of men, women, and children. You can directly impact the life of someone else by contributing to this trip. When we return from our trip, we would like to send you a DVD to show you some of the lives that were ministered to because of your contribution. We want you to be a part of this trip as much as possible. Hopefully, we will be able to have periodic updates on our online blog right here at http://www.snydermissions.blogspot.com/
If you would like to support this trip, you can send your gift to the address below. You can make your check or money order payable to “Snyder World Missions Fund”. In advance, we want to thank you for making this possible! God bless you richly! May souls be added to His kingdom during our trip, and the Lamb of Calvary receive the reward of His suffering!
Sharing His Light,
Jeff & Melissa
