Machine Gun Preacher is Sam Childers.  Sam was a former drug-dealing criminal who underwent an astonishing transformation and found an unexpected calling as the savior of hundreds of kidnapped and orphaned children. Come and here Sam recount his transformation and how he set about to save children in Sudan.

With an AK47 in one hand and a bible in the other, Childers has become affectionately known as the Machine Gun Preacher.

Through his charity – Angels of East Africa – Childers has built seven orphanages, seven schools, around 40 wells for clean drinking water, and a farm where he teaches those displaced by war, how to make a living.

Sam will be speaking in Cowra on August 30th at the Cowra Services Club – starts at 7:00 pm. More detail to follow. Enquires – Dave Hopkins 0428 279742
