MEET DR. MOUSSA
Moussa grew up in Burkina Faso, the country where our ministry is located. He received a master’s degree from Prairie Bible Institute in Canada and a Ph.D. in education from Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois, U.S.A. Before he went to Canada to study, he met and married Assita Coulibaly. Both of them came from families that were not Christians, but both became Christians during their teenage years before they met each other.
Dr. Moussa is the overall executive director of the ministry in Burkina Faso. He serves with a local board. As the ministry grows, he continues discipling others to help in various capacities. Assita, his wife, directs the women’s small loan entrepreneurial group. She has directed many other things as the ministry has grown, and she has helped out with many other responsibilities.
The Coulibalys have five grown children. Ruth, the oldest, is married to Mathieu Nana, pastor and director of the ministry in Ouagadougou, the capital. Caroline is the second daughter, and is a medical doctor, trained in Burkina Faso, but currently in Canada receiving a specialty in Community Medicine. Both Ruth and Caroline were born in Canada when Moussa was working on his master’s degree.
The third child is David, who is very adept in English and is a great help in the ministry. Timothy is the fourth child and is currently in Dijon, France, working on his Ph.D. in economics. Fidel, the last child is studying economics.
