Some Needed Good News in Liberia

Pictured below Liberian National Police on patrol in downtown Monrovia

Outside the Ebola Treatment Unit on the Samaritans Purse Compound.  Today as I drove by I witnessed a group singing worship songs (pictured further below) celebrating a man who was about to be released from the unit confirmed to have survived Ebola and now free of the virus.  His family would be arriving soon to take him home.  At this time this past week we officially had zero patients on the confirmed Ebola side of the unit.

 Before going into our daily staff devotion at the SP campus a photo of a healthy little guy named "Andrew" the son of a local pastor.
 One of the first things I wanted to do was begin to meet with our local security guards dedicated to guarding the Samaritans Purse Campus.  Pictured below are 15 of the 65 guards assigned to our campus.  We have a total of 121 guards working for SP throughout Liberia. These men and women have worked hard sometimes over long hours to keep the staff and property protected.

Meet Norman pictured here in front of Dr. Kent & Amber Brantly's home on the SP Campus. Norman was assigned to the Brantly's residence before and during the time the horrible news was delivered that Dr. Brantly was confirmed to have Ebola.  Norman continues to this day to patrol the property around the Brantly home hoping that he will once again see them return to Liberia.
