Meet the Author

In the summer of 1992, Childers converted to Christianity shortly after, and with the help of his wife at a revival meeting at an Assembly of God church. That same evening Childers' pastor prophesied that he would go to Africa. At the end of 1998, Childers made his first trip to Sudan. In that first trip and the many that followed, he was exposed to the acts of the Lord's Resistance Army which he described as atrocious. Not long after his first trip to Sudan, Childers and his wife Lynn founded the Angels of East Africa, the Children's Village in Southern Sudan. The Children’s Village currently houses and educates over 300 orphans, with over a thousand children rescued since its conception. The staff at the Children's Village are primarily Sudanese orphans and widows themselves. This is currently the largest orphanage in Southern Sudan and is unique in its approach of leading armed rescue missions directly into LRA territory.

Deeply Stirring Sam bears his very soul and heart in full. To express his triumphs and the ongoing true need for our help and support. He reveals his past, exposing his skeletons, so that you can see he is not hiding anything at all. Something that is not an easy task for anyone to do, but he is open and willing to hold nothing back from any closets, because he is following his true calling. He is fulfilling his destiny, as God himself has reached to him, to save and protect children. His pain from false promises and disappointments are revealed and are crushing, as he selflessly reaches with all he has – to raise funds to help to save the children of Africa. What one must remember is this book, is not a work of fiction. This is this man’s life. He is shedding his blood, sweat and tears every day trying to keep them safe, fed and protected. Struggling to give these children a chance at what most of us take for granted; a life. Countless sacrifices that he’s endured over years braving through the brutal war in Sudan to rescue the ones he could from being slaughtered, to bring them to a hopeful place of sanctuary, one that didn’t exist without him. The countless sacrifices that his family has also had to withstand, causing turmoil and distress to their lives, at the same time trying to support him. His very soul is constantly being torn and pulled to the ends of all limits as he explains. My greatest wish is that he achieves all of his goals for them, that we – great and small - are all able to somehow assist him so that he does.
