After Sam graduated from Wheaton College, he went to seminary and then entered the fifth Army in Italy. He saw many soldiers, including prisoners of war, come to Christ. After he came home, he decided he wanted to go as a missionary to Africa. But in 1949 he ended up in Portugal. In Portugal they held rallies, and in the 60s they got hold of some Teen Teams from the crusade held in Brussels, Belgium. The Cummings team packed every theater in Lisbon, and the secret police felt threatened because they couldn’t control the crowds. The revivals YFC produced created converts who went on to become pastors for 30-40 years. Sam stayed in Portugal until 1985 and then for five years taught at the Tyndale Theological Seminary in the Netherlands. He currently prays with the Chicago YFC staff every week.
