Matilda Kiumba – Kenya

Kenya Coast / Regional Director

Matilda is kind, funny and courageous. She met Jesus in 2002 at a Christian crusade and in 2004 when a friend introduced her to the ministry of Young Life. Ever since, she has been deeply involved. She serves as a regional director for Young Life in Kenya and owns a small tailoring business, which helps her run Young Life in her area. She is also a member of the Senior African Leadership Team (SALT) for Young Life Africa. “I have been in Young Life for many years, discipling kids, touching many lives and just loving kids every day of my life. I thank God for each of them.” Matilda’s favorite Bible verse is Ephesians 4:1-5, “As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received…one Lord, one faith, one baptism.” Matilda is now overseeing the Kenya Coast region as regional director.
