Young Life in Ethiopia is growing rapidly – it is second only to the United States in number of kids reached. In order for Young Life to continue to grow and thrive, it requires faithful leaders who sacrifice much in order to love kids the way Christ loves His children. One of these faithful leaders is Ephrem Altaye, who joined Young Life staff in 2016. He went to Young Life with a friend who wanted him to be a volunteer leader – little did he know that he would end up going on Field Staff and now running clubs in the town of Arba Minch. Ephrem met the Lord through his aunt when he was in high school, so high school students hold a special place in his heart. Ephrem would describe himself as happy, fit and friendly – three characteristics that we know help all Young Life leaders thrive.
