A Fort Worth doctor named Kent Brantly, continues fighting for his life in Liberia today and he’s asking for our prayers. Dr. Brantly contracted the deadly Ebola virus while assisting the Samaritan's Purse relief agency in Africa. He and his family had initially traveled to the area to take part in missionary work.
The 33-year-old doctor and his family attend Southside Church of Christ in Fort Worth. A church elder named Kent Smith, says Sunday's service was very difficult as many were worried about Brantly. Smith also says Brantly knew the risk of going to Africa to help, but did it willingly and voluntarily.
Dr. Brantly’s mother, Jan Brantly, says her son comes from a long line of physicians and missionaries and that his "heart is in Africa."
This morning, Dr. Brantly’s condition is described as grave. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
