Ebola Update

Greetings once again from Ghana! I hope all is going well for all of you that are free from Ebola. Here in West Africa we are doing somehow. . .

From President Hill:

"We continue to monitor the Ebola outbreak which is continuing in Liberia, Sierra Leone,and Guinea. Unfortunately, the number of cases continues to rise (1779) as well as the death toll (961). The government in those countries are taking various actions including travel restrictions in order to prevent the spread of the disease. It appears a traveler who went to Lagos and later died had Ebola and may have infected 11 others in Nigeria. In Ghana, 21 people have been tested for Ebola based on various but they were all negative and there are no confirmed cases in Ghana at all at this date. I hope this will help reassure your parents as well as help you to know that you can serve without worry or concern about this disease."

However, this was on another website:

This is all I know. . . I trust President Hill and know that the Church would not keep us here if it was going to effect us in Anyway. So we will just be super careful and hope and pray that all works out.

So Just got back on from light off. I lost some time. So this is about all I can post in the next 2 minutes I have on. I know that Heavenly Father will protect his missionaries and members no matter where they are in the world. We have to replace Fear with Faith. Trusting that God is in control and not us. As long as we are all obedient and are willing to follow his commandments. . . we will all be protected. Please Keep praying for the Doctors and Medical staffs battling this outbreak, pray for them and the people around it, that they will be protected. Also pray for the missionaries that they will be protected.

I love you all, and I will update you next week on this issue.
