Abel Sagara* – Mali

Area Director

Abel was born into a Christian family in Côte d’Ivoire, but he didn’t accept Jesus Christ as his personal savior until he went to Young Life camp at the age of 15. He heard a message about sin and the love of Jesus, and Abel knew he wanted this salvation. The next day, he prayed with his pastor to accept Christ as his Lord. Abel started leading Young Life through the recommendation of his pastor in 2011. He loves to see kids connect with Jesus through the talks given at Young Life club. He feels that his conversion experience has helped him to relate with the children of Mali. Abel married his wife Rachelle in 2012, and the two are now parents to a boy named David. Since 2018, he has directed ministry in the Koro and Bankass areas in Mali.
