Movie Monday- Machine Gun Preacher

This movie is a couple of years old, and I can’t believe I never heard of it. I am a movie junkie and I had no idea this movie existed…. and it stars Gerard Butler OMG! This movie was really intense. Its a true story about Sam Childers, a former drug-dealing biker who found God through troubled times. He traveled to Sudan to with a mission group to help repair the damage done by war. While there he experiences first hand just how terrible the situation was for the children of Sudan. He then sets out to build an orphanage to house these children who are faced with the unfortunate circumstances of their country. The village still stands today! You can click here to read Sam’s story.  This movie really opens eyes to all the devastation happening in the world.  It really stayed with me long after I finished the movie.  I cried for a while thanking God that my own children don’t have to live in fear of ever being faced with the decision to kill others to save their own life.
