Paddington Johannes – Zimbabwe*
Paddington is an intelligent, creative, and fun addition to our Young Life team in Zimbabwe. “Although I grew up in the United Methodist Church, it was not until I was a teenager that I accepted Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. This happened during a time where I began to ask many serious questions about the meaning of life. I gradually realized that Jesus was my answer to each and every one of them. It was here that I chose to repent of my sins and truly follow Christ.”
Paddington got involved with Young Life after he was introduced to Power, a Young Life leader that lived in his area. Before meeting Power, Paddington had felt God calling him to use his skills and talent to further His kingdom. Paddington had always had a passion for young people and saw Young Life as his opportunity to live into his call and passion. He began by doing ministry in Harare the capital of Zimbabwe and later got promoted into his current role as the logistics coordinator for Zimbabwe.
