These women are all believers from Muslim backgrounds who have been rejected by their families
Miraha, a Christian woman in Guinea, has faced ongoing difficulties since her husband’s death.
Muslim in-laws tried to persuade her to marry her husband’s brother and convert to Islam, but she refused to abandon her faith in Christ. Then they wanted to circumcise her 11- and 14-year-old daughters. When Miraha again refused, the family tried to hold her captive in the village, but she soon escaped to a larger city. As she stood weeping in the street one day, overcome with her desperate situation, a Christian woman invited her to stay with her. Miraha found work in a restaurant, but she had to quit because the owner demanded that she sleep with him.
