Mali is a French-speaking country located in West Africa. The population is 90% Muslim and only 2% Christian believers. An interesting fact is that the famous town of Timbuktu is located in Mali, but its proper French spelling is Tombouctou. Many foreign agencies are working to evangelize the people, but progress is slow. The education system is based on Islamic beliefs, and there is a lack of church facilities. Despite the rampant poverty and other challenges, the Christians in Mali are working hard to spread the faith. We are currently linking hearts with Christophe Dembele, who lives in Bamako with his wife and six children. He works with Evangelism Explosion in six French-speaking countries in West Africa, and he pastors a church of over 400.
