Hello! My name is Sam Meerwath and I'm trying to raise money for a year long trip to Guatemala. That much you know already. What you don't know is that while I'm there I will be working with an organization called Promised Land Ministries (PLM). I'll be staying with them for three months as the job site coordinator working with visiting teams from all over the U.S., building houses and installing stoves. Once PLM's mission season is over I will be working with the PLM school band, preparing them for the Independence Day parade. After THAT I will be staying with Pat and Yesenia Opperman, the founders of A Couple of Christians Foundation, Inc. While I'm staying with them I will be helping them out with all of their various projects that you can read about on their website . These funds will cover a year's worth of living expenses and any surplus funds will be donated to the organizations mentioned above. Thank you for your support.
