Rick & Donna Martin

Rick and Donna Martin are missionaries in Ayacucho, Peru. Before joining SAM they planted a couple of churches in NY and were heavily involved in discipling and training others in the faith.

They desire to see beautiful churches planted that help bring God’s shalom to broken cities and lives.
