I just got a message from my sweet friend Christie who, along with her husband, runs Ekubo Ministries. She said that there has been another outbreak of Ebola, but this time it's just a few miles away from their village. Perhaps the worst news is that they believe it's an airborne strain. Please pray that it will be quickly contained, and that all those infected will be healed.
Thank you for those of you who prayed so diligently for Christie this past week. She is still experiencing a lot of pain from malaria, but she is on the mend. It was her fifth time getting malaria this year - the most severe strain, too, so pray that The Lord will protect her from all illness from now until her sweet baby is due.
Lastly, in the next week or so, I'll be posting a list of items that are greatly needed by Ekubo and Sangaalo (where Baby Sam is!) Please consider donating to one of these incredible children's homes in lieu of Christmas gifts this year. As someone who has worked with both ministries, I can honestly say there is no better cause!
