A life of powerful encounters with God, exciting testimonies of God’s voice and leading, and miracles amidst trials and tribulations; and these are just a few descriptions of a man who was the first African Missionary to America. Samuel Morris was born in Liberia. After being held in the middle of a rival tribal camp, Morris faced repeated beatings amidst repeated attempts by his father to rescue him. When a bright light and a gentle whisper came to him in the middle of the night, Morris found himself away from his present reality as he was able to escape and finds himself in a Monrovia farm where he gets invited to a Bible study.

Morris stands up in the middle of the gathering expressing that same reality he just experienced. Immediately, his journey as a disciple of Christ begins.
