Cathrine Wanjiru Odongo* – Kenya
Regional YoungLives Coordinator
Cathrine is extremely outgoing and fun to be around. Her smile shows just what a great joy she is to know! In high school, Cathrine was introduced to Jesus by friends from the Young Catholics Association (YCA). Before meeting Christ, Cathrine was part of a rebellious group of friends and made some poor decisions. After making new friends from YCA, she was invited to begin a relationship with Jesus Christ and the love He showed her transformed her life. After accepting Jesus, Cathrine got involved in a local church youth group and she began to grow into a remarkable woman of God. Cathrine got connected to Young Life in 2009 through her husband, Richard Odongo, who serves as a regional director in Kenya. Cathrine now serves as a regional coordinator for YoungLives, a ministry for teen moms. We love Catherine and are thankful for the heart that she has for the Lord and for teen moms in her country.
