Paddington Johannes* – Zimbabwe
Paddington (Paddy) grew up going to church, but it was not until he was a teenager that he accepted Jesus into his life. He had many questions about the meaning of life and he gradually realized that Jesus was the answer to every single one of them. Paddy got involved with Young Life after he was introduced to Power, a Young Life leader that lived in his area. Before meeting Power, Paddy felt God calling him to use his skills and talent to further the kingdom. Paddy had always had a passion for young people and saw Young Life as his opportunity to lean 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.
