Fitsum Debub – Ethiopia
Fitsum started attending Young Life when a friend invited him. What he loved about club was the way the leaders cared for him and each other. While at Young Life camp, he met Jesus. Fitsum did not tell his family about his decision to accept Christ because he was afraid of what they would think. After three years, they found out he was following the Lord and kicked him out of the house. Fitsum moved in with his Young Life leaders, but after a year of separation, his parents reached out and asked him to move back in. They decided that they loved him even if he wanted to follow Jesus. As Fitsum matured in his walk with the Lord, he was invited to participate in the Developing Global Leaders program while serving as a volunteer leader. Because of his desire to reach lost kids, he was later invited to join Young Life staff. Fitsum currently serves as area director in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia, a city in the Northwest region.
