Franck Musafiri – DRC

Area Director

My father left my family for another woman when I was a teenager. Soon after, my mother contracted a chronic illness which incapacitated her for more than 2 years. Our family had no income without her business and there were many days where we went without a meal. I lost all hope. Then I met Benga, a Young Life leader, who invited me to Young Life camp. God met me there and revived my hope. After camp I returned home and Benga walked alongside me, listening to his advice and wisdom. I went on to become a leader in 2012, and four years later I became staff associate with Young Life. My last 10 years have been challenging, as I have been taking care of my mother and brother while also going to school and working. However, the love of Jesus Christ, Young Life and my friends have given me courage. In 2022 I became an area director in Bukavu. I supervise 17 ministries and hope to move to Kisangani soon to start ministry there.
