“Hello! My name’s Keila Olmo and I am from Barcelona, Spain. After my university studies in advertising and music, and some jobs, I decided to go to Youth With A Mission in Herrnhut, Germany, the town which hosted the 100 years of non-stop Moravian prayer. I had never really spent time exploring the Bible, missions or my relationship with God although I did go twice to Burkina Faso with EMSI which is my parent’s mission. At YWAM I saw how art, drama and music can change hearts and bring healing to the nations. In Herrnhut we have ‘Pick a Pocket‘ – a community or artists who take the gospel to people in extreme poverty and through art reveal ways to transform communities, forging new connections between the developed and developing world. From July, I am joining the team for two years doing media and music, exhibitions, mission trips, serving in the coffee shop and art gallery in town. I will also be helping EMSI Mission. Later on, what I really want to see is my own city of Barcelona changed. I would love to bring artists and musicians together in a downtown Café to reach the people.”
We have known Keila and her sister Loida since childhood. She is an immensely talented young lady, a credit to her parents, an honour to God, and a gift from Jesus being unwrapped to bless the nations.
