Addis Tafesa – Ethiopia

Area Director

As a teenager, Addis was full of anger after her father passed away, and she did not believe in God. Her mother suffered as she raised her kids alone. While Addis was living her own life and denying God’s existence, her cousin Beza brought her to a Young Life club. She liked everything except for the part about God. Beza continued to encourage her to come, and she went again; afterwards, she wrote down everything she liked about the club. One day while she was reading the Bible, she started to cry and something changed for Addis. She started to believe in Jesus Christ. Now Addis is free from the power of sin and is living her life for Jesus and leads other to do the same as area director for her hometown in the Adama region, an eastern part of Ethiopia.
