Sammy Gurule Memorial

Missions Fund

The Office of Volunteer Ministries (OVM) is pleased to announce the Sammy Gurule Memorial Missions Fund. This Fund is made possible by a generous donation from Edwin and Phyllis Gurule in honor of their son, Sammy. Sammy possessed a deep love for helping others and mission service. In his memory and on an annual basis, OVM will provide service assistance for two qualified Latino or Native American youth who serve as long-term volunteer missionaries in the OVM/Adventist Volunteer Service program. If you or someone you know has a heart for mission service, we invite you to apply.
