Sam Childers, is better known as the Machine Gun Preacher.
Childers life is the basis of a movie starring Gerard Butler. It centres around his transition from a drug-dealing biker to a man who found God and turned his focus to rescuing kids in some of Africa's most dangerous areas.
Sam believes that whoever hears his story will have hope for their life, "If they just take a little bit of that story in,” he said. “Just look deep into my story, if God can change me and use me... Imagine what he can do for you."
Sam Childers is a biker... who decides to go (late 90's) to East Africa to help repair homes destroyed by civil war. Transformed by the horrors he sees, Sam ignores the warnings of more experienced aide workers and breaks ground for an orphanage in the heart of territory controlled by brutal renegade militias. But establishing a shelter is not enough...determined to save as many lives as possible, Sam & his team go into enemy territory to rescue kidnapped children.
