Burkina Faso is a country located in West Africa. Its total population is 20,322,000 out of which 5,157,000 are Christians. Although there are many Christians in this country, the main religion is still Islam, and Christians are still persecuted.
The most persecuted Christians are the ones of Muslim backgrounds.
Many Christians are afraid to attend the church services, or even send their children to school. That is because an influx of violent Islamic extremist groups has led to attacks that killed about 40 Christians in 2019.
Let us pray for our brothers and sisters in Burkina Faso!
