Missionary Declared Free of Ebola; 'God Saved My Life'
Doctors say that Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly, two American missionaries who contracted Ebola while serving in Liberia, have been cured, with Brantly proclaiming that it is a â€śmiraculous dayâ€ť and giving God credit for saving his life during a press conference held Thursday.
â€śAs a medical missionary, I never imagined myself in this position. When my family and I moved to Liberia last October to begin a two-year term working with Samaritanâ€™s Purse, Ebola was not on the radar,â€ť he said after his release from Emory University Hospital. â€śWe moved to Liberia because God called us to serve the people of Liberia.â€ť
Brantly spoke of feeling ill on July 23 and of languishing in the subsequent days under the power of the painful and life-threatening illness. He became the first human to receive an experimental drug called ZMapp and was later moved to the U.S. along with Writebol for treatment....
Praise the Lord for His healing grace and for the much despised by some modern medicine that He has graciously allowed to be developed. May God grant both missionaries many more years of fruitful service.
Praise God for His great mercy in healing this young man. Dr. Brantly is living out his faith and giving all the glory to our Lord!! ---------------- "Glorify the Lord in your sufferings, and take his banner of love, and spread it over you.
