Peter’s Brief:

Peter is the executive Director of Swahiba Youth Networks. (“Swahiba” is the Swahili word for “a very close friend.”)

Peter learned early in his outreach to the youth that relationship is key.

He says that “you have to meet temporal needs if you want to share eternal truths.”

He explains, “If you are going to share the message of Hope in Christ with a hungry person, then sometimes you have to wrap the gospel in a sandwich.”

He spends his life meeting needs in one of the world’s most desperate places with the intention to share the message of HOPE particularly the venerable and orphaned young people.
