WEST AFRICA: Christian Teenager Cursed by Father

May 11, 2022 | VoM

Carla, age 16, came to faith in Christ in 2021. Though she grew up in a culturally Christian home, her widowed father practises animistic beliefs. When he learned about Carla’s decision to follow Jesus, he tried to force her to marry a non-believer.

After Carla refused, her father was enraged and tried to place a curse on her.

He also bribed a government official to bring a state case against Carla.

Carla has fled to her uncle’s house. Amid the hostility she is facing from her father, she has dropped out of school.
