Bryce and Hilary Fonda

Bryce served as a missionary with Wycliffe Bible Translators on-loan to SAMAIR Peru’s team in Pucallpa for a couple of years as the Base Operations Manager and Aircraft Maintenance Specialist. Hilary served with Pioneers in Peru for a couple of years, where she and Bryce met while in language school in Arequipa. They completed SAM’s 2016 candidate orientation training and married one week later. Having both been highly involved in their local churches before serving in South America, they both have a passion for discipleship and desire to use this passion, along with Aviation, for reaching those in tribal settings.
