Ebola Quarantine in Liberia

Our Dear Uncle Ron, Blessed be the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our hope and trust is in the hands of God now Ron. The country is under stress this morning. The president has declar carefule. Prices have incress. People are on the run for food. I’m so down Ron. My worried now is this children. We need food and cash to be on hand. Ebola is not the only insue. I’m not well. Daddy is too slow in doing thing. We need New Hope supportor’s prays and hope to hear from you soon. Marie:

Here is a message we received today from Marie Torbor at New Hope Children’s Village. There is a spelling error of the word “Curfew”, which is the wrong word anyway. She is referring to the quarantine of neighborhoods to try to curb Ebola.

She refers to “Daddy”, which is Myer. She is not critical, she is saying the situation is desperate and Myer is unable to fix it.

They are requesting our prayers. Marie very rarely communicates directly with me; she usually goes through Myer. They are very concerned about the outbreak of violence, a coup to overthrow the President, and the spread of Ebola. All of these are very real and pose a legitimate threat to Liberia and NHCV.



Note: The New York Times has a big story on this today.
