Ernest Njenga – Kenya
Ernest first met the Lord through his grandmother who would bring him to Sunday school at a young age. At the end of primary school, Ernest’s mother disappeared and his grandmother was very sick. He needed a friend, a caregiver, and above all— a forgiver of his sins. Ernest accepted Christ and committed himself to serve Him. While he was in high school, Young Life was started in his town. The love he saw in his leaders kept bringing him back to club. He had never felt love like this before, even from his parents. The leaders’ sacrifice for teenagers created a new desire within him to volunteer for Young Life. He started attending Campaigners each week and invited his friends to come. When he finished high school, Ernest received the Developing Global Leaders scholarship, helping him to attend college. Ernest now serves as an area director in Kilifi County, Kenya.
