Natinael Girma – Ethiopia

Area Director

Growing up, Natinael “Nati” lived with his grandmother, as neither of his parents were involved in his life. He grew up as a Christian, but he grew much deeper in his relationship with Jesus during his freshman year of high school when he started attending Young Life. After high school, he was invited to participate in the Developing Global Leaders program for select high school graduates to obtain a university education while serving as a volunteer leader. Due to Nati’s completion of the DGL program and his desire to introduce teenagers to the Lord, he was hired as an area director in Yeka, a sub-city in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. His prayer is for kids to come to club and to hear the gospel, despite the difficult political situation that makes kids feel uneasy about gathering in groups.
