Samaritan’s Purse Ebola Update

Dr. Kent Brantly, a doctor working for Samaritan's Purse, and Nancy Writebol, a missionary with SIM, are currently in serious condition. The two Americans who contracted Ebola in Liberia remain in the country today but medical evacuation efforts are underway and should be completed by early next week. 

Evacuation of 60 nonessential Samaritan’s Purse and SIM staff and dependents in Liberia has already begun. They are all healthy, and we expect them to return to the United States by the end of the weekend.

We ask for continued prayer for the evacuation process and the health of Kent Brantly, Nancy Writebol, the medical staff treating them and for all those who are affected by Ebola.
