Pray: American Missionaries Infected with Ebola, Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol

“We are grateful that Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol made it through the night. They remain in serious condition." - Samaritan’s Purse President, Franklin Graham, August 1, 2014

Please pray for these two missionaries from the United States who are fighting for their lives. Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol, medical missionaries through Samaritan's Purse, are both suffering from the Ebola virus that they contracted while caring for Liberian patients. There is no known cure, but an experimental serum arrived (enough for one person) and Brantly requested it to be given to Writebol. 

A fourteen year old Liberian boy, who Dr. Brantly helped care for while suffering from Ebola, donated his blood to help the now stricken doctor.

Pray for the whole situation and for full healing to come to these two missionaries, as well as the entire infected area in West Africa.

From 1976-2008, 1503 people died in remote parts of Africa from Ebola. In the past week, more than 700 people have died.

If you'd like to donate money towards Samaritan's Purse and their Ebola program, please see my previous post on giving.
