Sam and Annie became missionaries to Guatemala in 2013 and spread love, joy and the Good news of forgiveness of sin all over the impoverished country. In 2015,  he was diagnosed with Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and receive a lung transplant within 2 months. Being a faithful follower of Christ, Sam cherished the many friendships he had, many of them originating at the churches he faithfully attended over the years including the Body of Christian Fellowship, Agape Christian Fellowship, Cornerstone, Remnant Ministry Center, Communitas Church, and Casino Assembly of God. Sam was faithfully married for 46 years to the love of his life, Annie and their God-glorifying marriage will continue to inspire couples for years to come.
