The inspiring Machine Gun Preacher, Sam Childers, is in El Paso this weekend. Check out where you can see him preach and tell his amazing story!
Sam Childers is a former motorcycle gang member who grew up getting into trouble with the law. Childers straightened his life out, became a Christian and started a construction business. Childres traveled to Sudan for the first time in 1998, and since then, has worked to help the orphans of Sudan. Childers now has 6 orphanages in Sudan, with 5 of them up and functioning right now.
