Romeo Semambo – Uganda

Area Director

Romeo is an area director in Uganda, with ministry in two districts. He was born into a Muslim family. In his teenage years, he became known as a gang leader. A Young Life leader named Augustine invited him to club where he heard other teens share their testimonies, and the words touched Romeo’s heart. He later attended a Young Life camp in 2015 where he encountered Jesus and was baptized. Although he feared his family’s reaction, he heard a voice telling him that “the time is now or never.” He made the decision to accept Jesus Christ as his Lord and savior. He continued to grow in his faith by attending Campaigners, which began molding him into the leader he is today.
