Elise Ndiaye* – Senegal

Area Director

Elise was born into a Catholic family and grew up attending mass. She got baptized at the age of eight, but her faith in Christ was still new. At thirteen, she felt sick and was treated, but they could not find a cure. She was later taken to a charismatic church where she received healing. She also encountered Jesus there, and her relationship with Him grew. She learned about Young Life through a friend’s brother named Jacques who invited her to a club. Elise attended and was astounded by the way the message was presented. Her quest to see teenagers’ lives transformed led her to begin serving as a volunteer leader. Today, Elise is the area director for the Dakar Ouest area where she loves leading kids to Jesus.
