Banji Simasiku – Zambia

Area Director

Banji is funny, friendly and outgoing. She’s innovative and an incredible leader. She was introduced to Jesus after a friend taught her and her sister the gospel, and they then prayed together. Soon after, she met Senior vice president of Young Life Africa Steve Larmey, who convinced her to come on Young Life staff. A few months later, she went for Young Life staff training, learned more about the mission of Young Life, and was absolutely hooked. Now she works doing ministry in Ndola, Zambia, running two clubs in a middle school and a high school. Here, almost 300 kids learn about Jesus in a safe place every single week. With only five consistent leaders, it is still a challenge for Banji to run this ministry. Pray for more leaders to commit to Young Life, and that God would continue to support and sustain her ministry despite those challenges. We are so thankful for Banji and the ways she has faithfully loved the Lord and His children in Zambia.
