Front-Line Workers in Burkina Faso request prayer for Assetou as they have not heard from her and fear she has been kidnapped and forced into marriage. Assetou became a Christian while training to become a hairdresser. When she completed her training, she returned home, and her parents, who practice an animistic, traditional religion, were unhappy with her new faith. Assetou’s father tried to force her to marry an animist man, but she refused because of her faith in Jesus. In response, her father beat her and withheld food from her. When Assetou still clung to Jesus, she was driven from her home. Pray for Assetou.
