Ebola Survivor Credits ‘Mighty God’

Dr. Kent Brantly, a U.S. medical missionary who contracted the Ebola virus last summer in Liberia, credits a “mighty God” – and lots of prayers—for his survival.

After recovering from the disease, Brantly returned to the North Carolina headquarters of Samaritan’s Purse, the group he’d been working with in Africa. He spoke about Deuteronomy 6, saying it’s important to remind others of God’s acts.

“I will never grow tired of talking of this,” Brantly said. “I’m going to keep telling my story so I can remember what God has done in my life.”

Then Brantly offered this challenge: “Never think you’re just a normal person. If you’re pursuing God’s calling in your life, he will use you. Even if it’s a challenging calling, even if you find yourself in difficult circumstances, he will give you what you need to be faithful to him, even if it’s a whole army of people praying for you. Share your story over and over and over so you can remember we serve a mighty God.”
