He was born in Mauritius, an island situated in the southwest region of the Indian Ocean. Previously, he served as the Stewardship Ministries director of the Indian Ocean Union and the Southern Africa-Indian Ocean Division (SID).
His parents, Roger, a former alcoholic, and Therèse, joined the Adventist Church when he was still a little boy. He sensed God’s calling to serve as a pastor at a very young age. Through God’s leading and provision, he studied theology at Institut Adventiste du Salève, France. Later, he completed an MA in Religion with Andrews University at Babcock Extension Campus, Nigeria. His passion for studying the human mind led him to do a BA in Psychology/Education with the University of South Africa.
During his 26 years of pastoral service, Aniel was mainly involved in church pastoral work, administrative responsibilities, and departmental assignments. His primary passion is for pastoral work in the local church, which he considers the greatest school for ministry. He was enriched by the ten years he spent with the Youth Ministries department in his local conference and the Indian Ocean Union. He served as the executive secretary and president of his home conference and as president of the Indian Ocean Union.
He has been married to Micheline, his partner in life and service, for the past 24 years. They are the happy parents of Adam, the miracle of their lives.
