Linda Mpando* – Malawi
Linda grew up with little stability. Her father was a single parent and not a positive influence. She tried to run away, but ended up living between her grandparents’ home and her father’s. School nights were spent at her grandparents, where Linda’s grandmother taught her about Jesus. In that atmosphere she had the opportunity to respond to Jesus as her comfort and her hiding place. Soon after, she lost her father in a car accident, and began a journey of forgiving, healing, and growing closer to God.
A few years later she met a Young Life leader and became involved in Young Life club. At Young Life camp Linda’s leader helped her discover her own leadership skills and taught her how to love her friends well. She now serves as an area director in Lilongwe. Linda loves to use her creativity, patience, and sense of adventure to cultivate a relationship with girls and to introduce them to the God who made them.
