Celeste Baloi Tayob – Mozambique
During college, a friend presented the gospel to Celeste while on a road trip. Celeste knew in her heart she wanted to follow Jesus. Later, Celeste joined a Bible study but was not very committed. A Young Life leader invited her to camp where she learned that walking with Christ requires commitment and sacrifice. She began to live a life led by the Holy Spirit. Celeste was trained as a volunteer leader and joined a Young Life Bible study. As Celeste fell further in love with God and Young Life, she began to disciple a group of girls. Leader trainings and further Young Life involvement confirmed that God was calling her to do this with her whole life. After college, Celeste joined Young Life staff in the Matola area, the largest suburb of the Mozambique capital, Maputo, where she now serves as an area director.
