I have been challenged and touched by this article this morning. It is an interview with a nurse that was in Liberia and contracted ebola. Note how she continually refers to her trust in God and her love for the people of Liberia, and her patience with those who have poor understanding. It is a great model for those of us wanting to serve God through things and times that are scary. I think I find the ebola stories and survivors interesting because I wonder if I would have the courage to keep working in a dangerous environment, especially when I consider Allison and the kids. Her is a quote from the article that gives a good example of its content.
I always felt safe going. I trusted the Lord that we were the hands and feet of Christ. I had experienced Christ’s peace way before I ever contracted Ebola. [After I got sick,] my relationship with the Lord deepened, knowing he was in control. He was in control of what was happening, and it was not a surprise to God. He has our days numbered.
