Ebola Threat to LHM Liberia Center Continues
The Ebola outbreak that continues to ravage West Africa has killed more than 2,400 people, and health officials believe they are far from having it contained. The United States has joined the international response to the epidemic, committing a half billion dollars and sending 3,000 troops to the region to help keep Ebola from spreading. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Liberia and Lutheran Hour Ministries—Liberia have suspended many ministry activities, especially those that would result in the gathering of large groups of people. Our ministry center staff members are doing what they can to educate people and reduce the spread of the disease in Monrovia. Please ask God to give them health, strength and endurance, and pray that the spread of Ebola will soon be brought under control.
