Erotu Lawrence* – Uganda

Associate Regional Director

Erotu is a humble, dedicated and friendly man who serves as Regional Director in Eastern Uganda. While in college, Erotu met the Lord through his friends who were praying for freedom for their peers who had been abducted by the rebels in northern Uganda. By God’s grace, all of them were released. It was by the power of prayer and community that allowed Erotu to encounter Jesus for the first time. In 2005, Erotu joined Young Life after seeing the impact it had on his own son. He was convicted that all children in Uganda should receive the same mentorship, friendship and love his son received in Young Life, and began doing contact work in his local area. Many teens have since met the Lord through Erotu’s ministry in the cities of Amuria and Moroto, Uganda.
