Our hearts go out to all of you! We will continue to pray for the 7 still suffering. For those who have recovered, we pray for no lasting side effects. Since Ebola has become a possible threat in this country, we understand the anxiety that people in your country might be experiencing.
We stand with you as your brothers and sisters in the Lord and in the People of Praise. God bless you!!
