The following release from Dr. Kent Brantly, the Abilene Christian University graduate who has been recovering from the Ebola virus, was distributed by Samaritan’s Purse.

Brantly was working with Ebola patients in West Africa as a part of his time with Samaritan’s Purse when he caught the virus. He has been recovering in a specialized isolation room in an Atlanta hospital.

The release reads as follows:

As my treatment continues in the isolation unit at Emory University Hospital, I am recovering in every way. I thank God for the healthcare team here who is giving me compassionate, world-class care. I am more grateful every day to the Lord for sparing my life and continuing to heal my body. There are still a few hurdles to clear before I can be discharged, but I hold on to the hope of a sweet reunion with my wife, children and family in the near future.

Thank you for your prayers for Nancy (Writebol) and me. Please continue to pray for and bring attention to those suffering in the ongoing Ebola crisis in West Africa. Their fight is far from over.
