Sanogo's husband rejected her because of her faith in Christ.
Sanogo Yor was raised as a Muslim and married a man who worships the traditional idols of their village.
Together, the couple has seven children. One of their daughters asked to go to a Christian church, and her father allowed it. The daughter eventually trusted in Christ and invited her mother to attend church. After Sanogo attended the Christian church, her husband was enraged and abandoned Sanogo and their children. Since then, Sanogo has worked odd jobs to provide for her family, but finding work is difficult and most of her children have moved away to look for work. Despite Sanogo’s struggles, “her number one prayer request is that her husband would come to know Jesus,” a front-line worker shared.
