He has also served on the board of Evangelical Christian School and the Women of Hope. Sam has a deep desire to serve others and is an advocate of HEAL's mission and vision. Sam's career as a pilot for Federal Express has given him a deep international love.

Sam's strong love for family preservation is evident in his own family and evident when he serves passionately alongside us both in Uganda and stateside.
