Coverage Coordinator for Francophone Africa. Adama Dembélé was the national director for the Republic of Mali for 15 years before becoming the coverage coordinator for Francophone Africa in 2004. He married Niagani, which means “joy,” in 1982 and they have three daughters. “In 1982, I was challenged by the Rev. Kassoum Keita, who was the director of affairs for Francophone Africa, to join Campus Crusade.I wanted to be a part-time staff member. Rev. Keita told me they wanted a full-time staff member.  So I decided I needed to share this with my wife and pray and seek God’s will. When I shared the news with my wife, she was excited. More excited than I. So I said, “This is God’s will.”
