I just got off the phone with some disciples from the Monrovia, Liberia church. As many of you may have heard, one of our sisters, Evelyn Gamoh, passed away from Ebola a few days ago. The disciples there are are very sad and very stressed by the current situation. They told me that, yes, Ebola has taken many lives including our sister, but many hundreds more are dying from other diseases that the hospitals cannot or fear to treat due to the high number of health care workers that have already died in this outbreak.
Liberia endured a decade-long civil war recently and was just now beginning to get it’s health care system up and running efficiently again. This is why, they explained to me, the virus has overwhelmed their health workers in Liberia, even killing the top two medical doctors in the country. In their words, "Ebola respects no one." (Photo above is the burial of a medical worker).
The disciples ask that we please join them in prayer daily at 12 pm during the month of October. They ask us to pray for God’s mercy, that the Ebola virus can be contained and then stopped.
Please pass on their request to disciples you know and let us pray together for the Ebola crisis in West Africa.
