The Freedom Fighter

Last night in church, I sat right behind the man in the photo, Sam Childers.  Yes, that is a machine gun in his hand!

Sam is a preacher and one of his main tools, other than his Bible, is a gun.

I prayed for him but mostly I thanked God for him.  Sam puts his life on the line on a regular basis to rescue children who have been caught in the crossfire of the rebel atrocities in the area.

He showed us pictures.  He told us about kids that he has helped to rescue: children with their limbs blown off or even cut off.  He has found women whose breasts have been cut off and even children who were nailed to trees. 

These rebels are of the ultimate rebellion, SATAN!  ...but there is hope.  Hope that only Jesus can bring and Sam helps to deliver that hope.  The ultimate hope.

Children's Village Angels of East Africa is a Children's Village for orphans located in south Sudan and is founded by Sam.  The Village has almost 300 kids that have been rescued and are being restored by the LOVE of Jesus!

There is a movie coming out soon about Sam's story and I can't wait to see it!  It's called, "Machine Gun Preacher".
