Ebola.  The word strikes fear in the hearts of many around the world right now.

Perhaps it’s because I’ve rented one too many pandemic DVDs from that red box next to the convenience store, but news reports that the Ebola virus has the potential to find its way out of Liberia (western Africa) to other countries piqued my attention.

Friends of my family who are missionaries asked yesterday if we would pray for the two Americans who have contracted Ebola.  In the e-mail, our friends said, “these people are more than just another news story- we serve alongside Nancy in the same missionary organization.”  Wow.  It just hit closer to home for us.

So, while Ebola is a word capable of striking fear, would you be willing to stand against it with faith, and prayer?  You can read more about their story here.
