Dear Fellow Believers,
We are sad to inform you that we have lost some brethren in the church. They are our Bible worker, Brother Benjamin Smith, and his son. They died from the deadly virus known as Ebola. Brother Smith accepted his sick brother, who came from Monrovia on Friday and died the next day. Not knowing he was already infected with the virus, he was hosted in the same room with the family, thus causing them to contract the virus.
Presently, Brother Smith’s body together with that of his little son David (about 5 years), who died earlier, are in the house with his wife and mother in law, who are suffering from the same virus. Brother Smith’s wife and mother in law are now helpless, and the government through the Ministry of Health has positioned police at the house, preventing anyone from entering, to keep others from contracting and spreading the virus.
This Ebola virus has claimed more than 400 lives in Liberia since March 2014 and is still infecting many.
Brethren, please remember us in your daily prayers. We are fasting and praying that God will have mercy on all of His children in this situation.
Eric B.C. Kekula
Vice President, Liberia Mission Field
