Statement from Doctor Kent Brantly on being released from Emory Hospital where he was quarantined and recieving treatment for the deadly disease Ebola.
“I never imagined myself in this position”We treated out first Ebola patient (in Liberia) in June. When she arrived we were ready.”
“On Wednesday, July 23, I woke up feeling under the weather and then my life took an unexpected turn as I was diagnosed with Ebola. As I lay in my bed in Liberia for nine days, getting sicker each day, I prayed God would help me be more faithful in even in my illness, and that in my illness or even death he would be glorified,” Brantly said.
Brantly contracted the deadly virus while working in a Liberian Ebola ward with the aid agency Samaritan’s Purse. He was evacuated to the U.S. earlier this month along with Writebol.
How refreshing it is to see someone trained in Science understanding that the miracle of science is yet another gift from God, and not something which disproves Him. We wish the very best and pray for Dr. Brantly and Mrs. Writebol’s his coworker, as they regain their health and return to their respective families.
Even as we pray for the people in West Africa we are particularly thankful for Dr., Brantley and Mrs Writebol for their selfless service to others. Neither person had to be in West Africa, yet they selflessly decided that the best way to serve the lord is to serve others. We also pray for other health workers from Samaritan’s Purse who are selflessly doing God’s work through their works and not by their words .
Thanks you Dr. Brantly and others for your humanity.
