Since her earliest memories, Sammye has always been a person of deep faith. This faith served her well during several harrowing nights in a remote Guatemalan village. Sammye and her husband lived and worked as missionaries in Guatemala for more than 40 years. In the 1950s, the country she had come to call home was torn apart by civil war. Over the course of several nights, as jet fighters buzzed overhead, more than 20 terrified villagers — all women and children — scaled ladders over a wall to reach Sammye’s home. They were seeking shelter from approaching soldiers. Sammye and her husband opened their home to them. On advice from the U.S. Ambassador, Sammye had one day to hand-stitch an American flag from memory to hang from a broomstick outside her door. The flag would protect her family and neighbors from soldiers patrolling the area. Sammye’s act of courage helped save the lives of vulnerable women and children from her village. From that experience, Sammye learned that faith is stronger than fear. We’d love to hear where your courage comes from. Please join us for a free lunch and tour.
