Hamidou felt the call of God to spread the gospel. So he left the safety of his home in Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, to take the gospel to the northern part of his nation. Though radical Islamists are active in that region, he moved there with his family and planted a church. On May 15, 2023, Islamic extremists appeared at his home, located next to the church. When Pastor Hamidou saw the men, he fled into the church. The militants followed and shot him and two other men, killing them. Front-line workers ask for prayer for the families of Pastor Hamidou and the other men as they grieve. They also ask for prayer that the extremists will come to know Christ and that these attacks will cease.
