From Samaritan’s Purse:

Statement from Amber Brantly

BOONE, N.C., July 31, 2014 -The following is a statement from Amber Brantly, the wife of Dr. Kent Brantly, the American doctor with Ebola:

“I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to the many people who have reached out to me and my family during this difficult time. Thank you to our good friends and thousands more who have been in constant prayer and fasting for Kent’s deliverance from this disease. Also, thank you to Samaritan’s Purse for their warmth, professionalism and support they have extended to us.

“I remain hopeful and believing that Kent will be healed from this dreadful disease. I am grateful for the daily reports I receive from his doctors on the ground. He is strong and peaceful and confident in the love of Jesus Christ, which is his sustenance right now.

“Many people have been asking how I am doing. The children and I are physically fine.  We had left Liberia prior to Kent’s exposure to the virus. I am always anxiously awaiting any news from Liberia regarding Kent’s condition. Through the mountain tops and the valleys of this ordeal, I have been given a peace that comes from my relationship with my God. Jesus remains the Rock that I lean on. I feel strengthened each passing hour by your prayers. Through letters and comments, we have felt God’s love and comfort poured out to us from literally every corner of the world.

“During our time in Texas, the children and I have enjoyed the reunion of family. Our kids have been a welcome relief and distraction to us all, reminding us of our joy and hope.

“I have been encouraged by the Writebol family and their bravery during this situation. They have kindly reached out to me and offered their full support and prayers as we walk this road together.

“I ask for your continued prayers for Kent, Nancy and the many others who are suffering.”
