Linda Mpando* – Malawi

Area Director II

Linda grew up with little stability. Her father was a single parent and a negative influence. She ran away, but ended up living between homes. School nights were spent with her grandparents, where her grandmother taught her about Jesus. In that environment, she had the chance to know Jesus as her comfort and hiding place. She lost her father in a car accident and began a journey of forgiving, healing, and growing closer to God. Later, she met a Young Life leader and became involved in Young Life club. At camp, Linda’s leader helped her discover her own leadership skills and taught her how to love her friends well. She now loves to cultivate relationships with teens and introduce them to the God who made them; Linda serves as an area director in Lilongwe, Malawi.
