Hellen Thomson – Tanzania

Area Director

Hellen was born into a Christian family; her mom and dad were singers in their church. She was baptized and confirmed in her church in 2004, but her relationship with Jesus started two years later. In 2007, her sister introduced her to Young Life; she was always singing fun songs whenever she came home, and this attracted Hellen to Young Life. She started going to Campaigners with her, where they would discuss the Bible. Hellen and her sister started Young Life in her school and she went on to become a volunteer leader in 2011 for seven years until she was asked to serve as an area director in Arusha. She continues to lead ministry there and feels like she is right where God called her to be.
