Marilyn Snider served in Hong Kong with One Mission Society since 1966. She has transitioned from Hong Kong to the United States and is now assisting in funding the Twin Scholarship Endowment Fund, Project #405122. This fund provides scholarships for Filipino students who study at the OMS-affiliated Faith Bible College (FBC) in Manila.
A native of Muncie, Indiana, she graduated from Ball Memorial Hospital School of Nursing and Ball State University in Muncie with a B. S. degree in nursing. She later attended Taylor University in Upland, Indiana, where she sensed God’s leading to the mission field.
Following two years of language study, Marilyn worked as a nurse in an OMS clinic. Then for eight years she was involved in children’s ministries and later taught English as a means of evangelism in the churches. Later, she was the school nurse for United Christian College, a junior and senior high school. In addition to caring for students’ physical and spiritual needs, she taught Bible classes for English-speaking students.
These many years of varied service helped to prepare her for working these last years with the OMS Hong Kong Filipino Church in evangelism and discipleship.
