Simon Riziki Mwamuye – Kenya

Area Director

Simon is outgoing, funny and God-fearing. He serves as area director for Young Life in Mainland West. Five slums surround this area, and most teens are faced with poverty, drug abuse, single parenting, peer pressure, prostitution, child labor and HIV/AIDS exposure. Furthermore, it is a heavily Muslim populated area and much of the community does not support Young Life. Despite these great challenges, Simon is faithful and steadfast in his ministry. When he sees his teenage friends say “yes” to Jesus, he knows that all the challenges he faces are worth it. Simon was raised in a strong Christian family, and learned to love, respect and worship God from a young age. Now, he is married to Belindah and father to Francis, and they continue to teach not only their own child but all the kids around them to love, respect and worship God, and to fall in love with Jesus.
