Natinael Girma* – Ethiopia
Growing up, Natinael “Nati” lived with his grandmother, as both of his parents were not 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. Nati became deeply involved in Young Life throughout the rest of high school which allowed him to mature greater in his walk with the Lord. After high school, He was invited to participate in the Developing Global Leaders (DGL) program. The DGL program is an opportunity for selected students to gain a university education while they learn from a mentor and serve in a local Young Life club. Due to Nati’s completion of the DGL program and his desire to introduce adolescents to the Lord, he is now a staff associate in Yeka, a sub-city in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Please pray for kids to come to club in Nati’s area and for them to hear the Gospel, despite the difficult political situation that makes kids feel uneasy about gathering in groups.
