Tridia Kamwanga Wa Kasamba is an international Global Mission Fellow with the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries, engaged in a two-year term of service.

The Global Mission Fellows program takes young adults ages 20-30 out of their home environments and places them in new contexts for mission experience and service. The program has a strong emphasis on faith and justice. Global Mission Fellows become active parts of their new local communities. They connect the church in mission across cultural and geographical boundaries. They grow in personal and social holiness and become strong young leaders working to build just communities in a peaceful world.

Tridia is a member of Mount Nebo United Methodist Church in the Southwest Katanga Annual Conference. She is a member of Youth for Christ and a children’s monitor.

She earned a diploma/certificate in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel at ITM Africa, Lubumbashi, DRC, and interned at a local radio station.           

Tridia is eager to help people through The United Methodist Church.

“My contribution to Global Mission Fellows,” she said, “would be to share the little knowledge I have about my faith and my conversion as a born-again Christian. For me, it is an opportunity to learn more and to open myself to the Christian life and to all these advantages as a member of the church.”

Tridia described her conversion to Christianity as “a very beautiful experience.” As children of God, she noted, “we must have a reference and a way of convincing others about the faith because it is the only thing that a Christian must not lose. All are called to serve and to remain faithful from generation to generation.

“Even lost like bad apples, we always end up coming back to our church, and it’s a mystery that only true Christians can understand.”

Being a Global Mission Fellow is “a huge honor for me and my community,” Tridia said, “especially for my family to know that [I am] serving The United Methodist Church.

Tridia looks forward to meeting God in community with other Christians.

“There is nothing better,” she said, “than learning new things and putting them into practice, while discovering other places in the world.”
