Ibrahim Bangura* – Sierra Leone
Ibrahim comes from a Muslim family. but when a pastor asked if he would become a Christian, he staunchly refused. This pastor returned and told Ibrahim that Jesus was the way, the truth, and the light. Ibrahim again refused, but later on, asked God to direct him towards the truth. That night, Ibrahim dreamt these words from Jesus: “My child, come, be a Christian.” Ibrahim stopped going to the mosque, despite the shame he felt from his family for becoming a Christian. He continued attending church, and the Lord gave him a heart for evangelism. Ibrahim got involved in Young Life by volunteering to serve on the work crew at a church. After serving, he began doing contact work with kids at his church and his community, inviting them to come along to Young Life. Now he serves as area director in eastern Freetown, Sierra Leone.
