NHCV Currently Safe From Ebola

Aug 1, 2014 | Health and Nutrition, Liberia in the News

There have been so many, wonderfully caring inquiries regarding the recent outbreak of the deadly disease, Ebola, and the safety of New Hope Children’s Village. First of all, it seems that everyone is safe at this time, praise God. Thank you for your concern and please continue to pray.

I understand that perhaps Liberia was a little slow in taking preventive measures and that the Liberian people did not take the government seriously enough in the beginning. I believe everyone is taking this very seriously at this point and taking every precaution. Ebola presents itself much the same as the flu or even Malaria, both of which are not uncommon in Liberia, consequently, it is not consistently diagnosed quickly enough. With the recent surge in deaths, it is being taken much more seriously and hopefully people will be quicker to recognize the danger when they observe the symptoms.

Please join us in prayer for the recovery of those infected, and that God will protect the care-givers.

Please join us in getting the request out for prayer.

Please join us in prayer that God will reveal to medical science an effective treatment for this deadly disease.

Please join us in worship as we acknowledge the sovereign power and manifest goodness of God.

Knowing that life is fragile, and that sin is rampant, and that we are guilty, has provided an even more remarkable solution to our real problem.

Glory to God
