The Other Christians

Dear Friends,

As I write to you from Luawa Yiehun Community Church I do not know how this letter may arrive to my friends in our prayer group.  I do not know if I will arrive before the letter, or possibly be stopped at the border for fear of a contagion which we have reason to fear.  I am speaking of course of Ebola, which has become world news recently although it has existed for many years in this region.

What I do know is that prayer and His grace keep me sane through this journey. Patients are surviving, and recovering from this disease.  People with less education than you or I are listening to the rules of care and following them.  Education and compassion are effective weapons in this war. But there is a need for more of both.  So much more. More beds, more workers, more teachers, more intercessors.
