This prayer request is from Kalengule Kaoma, one of GCI’s mission developers in Africa.
As you know, Ebola is spreading rapidly in the West African nations of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea. Global media have been reporting rioting in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia. Food shortages there are due primarily to travel restrictions.
Although there is noticeable reduction in travel by air, a lot of people are still travelling and it is easy to spread the disease that way. Thankfully, some countries have taken measures to educate travelers about Ebola. In Malawi, all travelers are screened for Ebola at airports.
Robert Browne, GCI director in Liberia, reports that the situation is, “Like being in prison—prices of commodities have gone high and almost every pastor of GCI in Liberia is stranded.” We will be looking for ways to assist them. We ask our worldwide family to lift these people up to God in prayer.
