Mariah Martin of Goshen College participates in Study-Service Term in Peru

Mariah Martin of Glenwood Springs is participating in the Goshen (Indiana) College Study-Service Term (SST) in Peru during the fall semester. Mariah, a senior Bible and Religion major at Goshen College, will spend 13 weeks studying, serving and living with host families in Peru. Mariah attends Glenwood Mennonite Church.

SST is a 13-week program that’s divided into two distinct parts. During the first half of the journey, students dive headfirst into the local culture — usually in the country’s capital city — with intensive study and language instruction alongside other Goshen College students. For the second leg of the journey, students begin work on a volunteer service project, often in a more remote part of the country.

Web updates and photos from the Peru group are available from Goshen College’s SST website at http://www.goshen.edu/peru.
