Sixteen-year-old Carla was cursed and driven from her home because of her decision to follow Christ.
Carla, age 16, came to faith in Christ in 2021.
Though she grew up in a culturally Christian home, her widowed father practices 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 became enraged and tried to place a curse on her. He also bribed a government official to bring a state case against Carla. Carla fled to an uncle’s house and has dropped out of school amid the hostility she is experiencing from her father.
