Julia Wambui – Kenya
Julia grew up in the church, where she became a Christian. She often mentored youth in her church and was involved in several prayer groups. One day she prayed for leaders Martin Simiyu and James Mungai and Young Life. Immediately after, she went and looked for Martin to learn more about Young Life. She fell in love with the ministry, joined, and was trained as a leader. Now, eight years later, she is on staff for Young Life in the Kiwanja neighborhood in Nairobi. Although teenagers in this neighborhood are filled with much darkness, Julia is persistent in bringing the light of Christ’s love to them.
