Sneed, Phillip & Brooke

From: $10 – subscription plan available

Phillip and Brooke will serve with SAMAIR, impacting approximately 20 different people groups in Peru each year.

Initially fearful of flying, at first take off a 12-year-old Phillip found he had a love for it. Phillip grew up flying at the Bolivar, MO airport. From the beginning, he had the opportunity to watch and support the growth of SOAR, a local mission aviation training organization. His desire to combine his passion for discipleship and aviation grew after he was encouraged to become a missionary pilot by his now wife, Brooke. In the Lord’s timing, Phillip decided to pursue missionary aviation, following the clear path that God provided through SOAR. He joined SOAR in 2019, already having a Private Pilot License, and began training as an A&P apprentice. Phillip earned his A&P license in May 2022 and is continually working towards increasing his flight ratings.

Brooke was an elementary school art teacher for four years. Naturally, she desires to use her God-given gift of teaching in many ways. She has long desired to return to the people of Peru. During Brooke’s university years, she grew to know and love the Peruvian people as she shared the gospel on mission trips.

The Sneeds joined SAM in summer of 2022, rejoicing in the organization’s values that align with their own. They are excited to learn Spanish, participate in the Peruvian culture, and use aviation as a tool for sharing the gospel. Phillip and Brooke will continue to live out their discipleship philosophy of having a dearness to the people that allows them to share not only the gospel but their own lives as well (1 Thessalonians 2:8).

    Ministry: Peru Field, GO Fund

    Each of South America Mission’s countries of service incurs costs associated with managing and facilitating ministry and caring for missionaries (e.g. compliance with local government regulations, operating a field office, stewarding field finances, etc.) Resources allocated in support of the general operations of the Peru field directly support the infrastructure essential to ministry.

    Ministry: SAMAIR Peru

    Imagine an aerial view of a Cessna 206 floatplane, suspended above the backdrop of an Amazon River tributary with a remote village on its flooded banks. In that view, all the pieces come together and convey aviation’s integral role in the ministry of South America Mission: transporting fulfillers of the Great Commission to the hard-to-reach places, to the people in those remote, village homes, with the good news of Jesus.
