Ebola continues to spread in West Africa the total number is now 2,615 with 1,427 deaths reported. Sources state that the magnitude of the Ebola outbreak has been "underestimated."
Most of the new cases are in Liberia. So far, that country has record 1,082 cases and 624 deaths*. New treatment centers are overwhelmed by patients that were not previously identified.
As churches in Liberia pray for God's protection, I can say simply, "Our people will survive this invasion of Ebola by the special grace of God." Across West Africa, plans are being made to "mobilize the Church for fasting and prayer.
We are also calling on all people in the west to join us in fight against Ebola by providing us with the necessary items needed to help these Liberian families in a critical time of real need.
