A dear friend and SIM colleague tests positive for Ebola virus.

URGENT: Please pray for Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly, Dr. Rick Sacra and others facing the worst outbreak of Ebola ever in West Africa.

Nancy works with SIM in Liberia and was part of the joint SIM/Samaritan’s Purse team treating Ebola patients at the Case Management Center in Monrovia. Nancy and her husband, David, are members of our home church, Calvary Church, in Charlotte, NC.

Our hearts are heavy and deeply sadden by this sobering news. We know our God is greater. Please join us in praying for mercy on our colleagues facing the challenge of their lives. May God use this somehow for His glory and for the expansion of His Kingdom.
