Update on Conditions of American Doctor and Missionary Being Treated for Ebola in Liberia

Dr. Kent Brantly, a doctor working for Samaritan's Purse, and Nancy Writebol, a missionary with SIM, have shown a slight improvement in the past 24 hours. However, both remain in serious condition in Liberia, where they are being treated for Ebola.

Because of instability and ongoing security issues in the area, Samaritan's Purse is making arrangements for nonessential personnel to leave the country.

We ask that people continue to pray for Kent and Nancy and all those who are affected by Ebola, and the tremendous group of doctors and nurses who are caring for them.
