“We appreciate so much all the words of comfort and acts of kindness extended to our family.

“As people with a deep faith in Jesus, we sincerely thank the thousands of people worldwide who have lifted up Kent and this dreadful situation in prayer. We continue to lean on that faith and take great consolation in our God in these times.

“Amber and their two children are staying in an undisclosed location to protect their privacy. We continue to believe that God will deliver Kent from this deadly virus.

“We have a strong family unit within a stronger faith community that has given us incredible support. Kent remains very physically weak but his spirit has been determined throughout this ordeal.

“This is a challenging time for our family. We will not be speaking to the media at this time. We ask that you respect our privacy.

“We ask for your continued prayers for Kent, his colleague, Nancy Writebol, and the healthcare workers in Liberia struggling to meet the overwhelming demands of those who are sick with the Ebola virus as well as patients who have come to that hospital with other needs.”

The prayers of the entire The Global Dispatch team goes out to Kent, Amber, their family and the Samaritan’s Purse team working in West Africa battling this horrific disease.
