Samson leads an Urdu church in Toronto and is hard at working sharing the love of Jesus in the religiously diverse and highly dense Flemingdon Park neighbourhood.
He visits Pakistan to teach and encourage persecuted Christians through a prison ministry. He is a regular guest on an Urdu TV program in Toronto (and once in Pakistan, too) which is broadcast online and on satellite TV, and has also begun teaching online besides the TV program.

Samson was born and raised in a Christian home in Pakistan. After he finished college, he started working with an outreach ministry which eventually sent him to seminary in Singapore—a truly cross-cultural experience that prepared him for the future.
He returned to Pakistan after seminary and continued working with the ministry, eventually heading up a prison outreach program. This program was initially intended to encourage imprisoned Christians, but soon Muslim inmates were also seeking Samson, believing in the potency of Christian prayer. Word got out that Samson was supposedly converting Muslims and anti-Christians reacted by threatening Samson and his family at their home. They were forced to leave home for Canada.
Samson had been a key leader in OM for several years prior, so he contacted OM Canada to see if they could get him connected with some local Christians and ministries. They put him in touch with Voice of the Martyrs (with whom he volunteered for several years) and also a local Persian pastor who then introduced him to Shawn and the Jesus Network.
Samson has a shepherd's heart and is a encourager and comforter in addition to being a great teacher.
