Rahel Abdissa – Ethiopia
Rahel met Jesus when she was 15 years old through a woman who mentored her and introduced her to the Lord. Because of this relationship with her mentor, Rahel understands the importance of real relationships with a mentor and close friend. When Rahel was in high school, her Young Life leader prayed for her and encouraged her to go to Young Life. When she finally went, Rahel loved it and started to dream about being a leader one day. When Rahel was first a Young Life leader, she was ecnouraged by how easy it was for her to see Jesus’ presence. She says that still holds true despite leading Young Life in a difficult area. Rahel is currently the area director for the Kora, Lafeto, and Menknsay neighborhoods.
