Pastor Mamadu was born in 1968 in the village of Campsunbel just outside Gabu, Guinea Bissau. His Fula village and family were all Muslim. When he accepted Jesus in 1991, he was persecuted by both his family and the village. He was thrown out of his home and had to move in with some relatives. Some of the youths in the village beat him. In response to the beatings, he fasted and prayed for God to forgive the ones who persecuted him.

He was baptized in 1993 and joined YWAM to receive more training. Shortly after joining YWAM, he contracted Tuberculosis, Meningitis, and Malaria all at the same time. His family was convinced that he was going to die, so they quit feeding him and left him to die. The YWAM leaders took him to the hospital in Bissau where he spent the next six months. A missionary then came from Canada and spent one year nursing him back to health.

In 1996, he was able to take the YWAM D.T.S. course and then he started working in the Presbyterian Church as an assistant. He has since completed seminary through the Presbyterian Church and serves as an associate Pastor in Gabu and travels to Balanka and Cangaru every week to hold church services.

His vision is to spread the gospel to the Fula people and he hopes to plant a church in Campsunbel, the village that persecuted him.
