Isaya Mollely – Tanzania

Area Director

Isaya lives in Mairowa, Tanzania. He is described by his peers as a father and leader, loving and fun. He shares, “I met Jesus at school in 1994 when a pastor came to teach us about Jesus’ love. When he prayed for us, I had a wound on my leg that started healing up as he was praying. After, I witnessed that miracle I decided to give my life to Jesus, and in 1998 I got baptized.”

“I got in involved in Young Life when I met a missionary named John who worked at the integrative school in my area, where many pastors go to tell kids the good news about Jesus. John knew of some Young Life leaders (Alexis and Laban), and he decided to connect me to them. Once I saw Young Life in action; I was all in. I knew I had to be a leader. In 2015 Young Life leaders from Arusha came and trained my team of leaders and me. I’m so grateful to the Lord for His work in my life. I am now an area director or Mairowa (Maasai area) in Arusha and supervising 5 clubs with 21 leaders. I am on the move to continue introducing kids to Christ in Tanzania.”
