samuel's STORY:

Samuel and his siblings were abandoned by his abusive father when he was very young. This left Samuel, his brother Abel (who also lives at Saving Grace) and their other siblings to live with their alcoholic mother. After multiple disappearances of their mother, Samuel and Abel went to the streets in search of food. In 2017, Samuel was taken in by Saving Grace on the same day as seven other street boys, after two years on the street.

Samuel is now a prankster at the village and known for joking and playing with everyone. He absolutely loves taking pictures, especially while making faces and being silly. You can often find Samuel dancing, singing and drumming. He has jumped into worship life at the village and loves nightly worship and playing soccer.
