Behailu Gebremedihin – Ethiopia
Behailu lived with his mother and two siblings, as his father had walked out on the family before he was born. While he was still young, his mother and sister passed away. To cope with the tragic losses, Behailu got involved in some bad behavior. When a girl he was interested in invited him to Young Life club, he went and loved it. His leader invited him to camp, where he ultimately gave his life to the Lord. He says his life was transformed there. As he got more involved in Young Life and matured in his walk with the Lord, he was invited in to the Developing Global Leaders program for select high school graduates to obtain a university education while serving as a volunteer leader. Behailu completed the DGL program and is now an area director in Debre Zeit, Ethiopia, outside of Addis Ababa.
