A well-known preacher who rescues kidnapped children in Africa is the subject of an FBI investigation after agents raided his home and ministry headquarters, CBN News reports.
Sam Childers, who last year won the Mother Teresa Humanitarian Award for his work, found out last week that agents combed through his house and ministry in Somerset County, PA.
“I was told they came in guns drawn and told everyone to put their hands in the air, patted everyone down,” Childers told CBN News.
“They made them all leave the building, put my daughter into a closed room and they started their search,” he continued. “We suspect that they were searching for things leading, showing that I’m smuggling arms to Africa and selling them, which is totally crazy.”
Childers said he’s uncertain why agents searched his places but said he did nothing wrong.
The FBI couldn’t be reached for comment.
