Thanks for visiting my blog! My name is Sam Stokesberry and I am the [sometimes grammatically incorrect, yet always enthusiastic] author of this sweet website that you’re about to dig into. I created this blog to give my supporters, donors, prayer warriors, friends, and family a little taste of the crazy adventures that the Lord has taken me on while living in South Africa! Serving in the global anti-human trafficking realm is always an adventure filled with new challenges and heartbreaking testimonies. It’s a journey where I get to join hands with brave survivors who have overcome insane obstacles and it’s overflowing with teachable moments of learning how to walk in sweet surrender with Jesus. You’ll get a first-hand look into my perfectly imperfect, faith-filled missionary life with the King of Kings accompanied by lots of laughs, a moderate amount of tears, and tons of truth.
My prayer is that once you finish exploring this blog you’ll be encouraged, motivated, and maybe even a teensy bit inspired to say no to becoming a pew warmer and a big fat yes to becoming a world transformer. So let’s get a move on, folks! There are blog posts to read and people to impact!

A girl full of passion. A love for people. A calling from God. These three ingredients have created a unique and incredible mission for my life, and I couldn’t have asked for a better place to put that mission into action. South Africa.
As a missionary living and working 7,000 miles away from home, staying in touch with friends and family is crucial to my survival (and sanity). Knowing that I can keep my supporters the loop by sending out prayer requests, praise reports, and travel plans…
Every New Year’s Eve, I ask God to give me one specific thing to focus on for the year. Sometimes He gives me a verse, a word, or a phrase. That way, no matter what the year has in store or how messy life…
You guys need to meet my mom. My mom is a supremely gifted and creative human being, especially when it comes to interior design and home staging. She can turn any poorly decorated room into a beautiful work of art with just a few…
