The body of a child torn apart by a landmine lay in the sunburnt grass of Southern Sudan — This was the moment former US 1%ER & Outlaw biker Sam Childers decided to devote the rest of his life to save the children of East Africa.
Sam Childers is on his 2022/3 World Tour – speaking to youth detention centers, drug rehab centers, prisons, schools, businesses, churches, and organizations where he believes his story will inspire hope and motivate anyone that wants to make successful changes in their lives.
Sam gave up a life of drugs, crime & violence in the US Outlaw Motorcycle Gang circle – after he noticed his life began to change when he joined his then-girlfriend on her visit to church.
His dedication to Africa was sparked in 1996 when he stumbled across the child’s body during a church mission to rebuild huts destroyed by war in Southern Sudan — not long afterward, Childers began building his first orphanage in Southern Sudan after selling his construction business back in the US.
Most of the orphans have lost their parents due to the atrocities of war, accidents, or diseases such as AIDs and malaria — others are former child soldiers or sex slaves rescued by Childers & his team from local militia and rebel groups.
With an AK47 in one hand and a bible in the other, Childers has become affectionately known as the Machine Gun Preacher.
His life story was published in his 2009 biography, Another Man’s War. It was turned into a Hollywood feature film in 2011, called The Machine Gun Preacher and starring Glaswegian & Hollywood heartthrob Gerard Butler.
Through his charity – Angels of East Africa – Childers has built seven orphanages, seven schools, around 50 wells for clean drinking water, and a farm where he teaches those displaced by war how to make a living.
