Mariama Korie

Mariama's mother died in childbirth and her father married another woman. He had 5 wives. She was 6 when her father died. She went to live with her grandmother for a while but eventually she could not care for her and she went to live with an uncle. Here she had many struggles. She was a Muslim but wanted to attend church. It was at church that she met Pastor Francis who brought her into the home. She is hopeful for a good future.
