SAM CHILDERS (MACHINE GUN PREACHER)

FOUNDER OF ANGELS OF EAST AFRICA

From a very early age, Sam Childers embraced an outlaw biker lifestyle that revolved around drugs, sex and guns. One night he was in shootout at a bar that nearly took his life. “I don’t have a problem with dying, but I have a problem with what I’m going to die for.” After that night, Sam decided to give his life to Christ and has never looked back. On a missionary trip to Africa, Sam found the body of a young child who had stepped on a landmine. He had heard of Joseph Kony and the LRA, the rebel group who kidnapped children and turned them into child soldiers, but seeing this dead child forever changed his life. He started an orphanage on the Ugandan border and led a militia group that fought to protect children from the LRA. Today Sam is a pastor, a best-selling author and the subject of a recent Hollywood film called, “The Machine Gun Preacher.”
