Bernardi Horokoro heard about Young Life while working as a tour guide on Zanzibar, the beautiful archipelago off the coast of Tanzania. As Young Life groups were led by Bernardi to visit this beautiful place, the staff got to know him and told him about the person of Jesus…and about Young Life’s aim to introduce kids to Him. Although a Muslim, he was drawn to the YL staff and their love for Christ and kids. Through his conversations with our staff over the years, he eventually became a believer and joined YL staff so he too could reach kids and tell them about the freedom and peace found only in Him.
Bernardi brings this love of Jesus to his home island of Zanzibar, which is almost exclusively Muslim, generally closed to Christian teachings and is the historic site of a large former slave market.
