Ebola still affecting work
William* and Ruth* are continuing to work among the Susu in Sierra Leone despite the struggles with Ebola. Sierra Leone has instituted a two-month 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew to try to contain the disease by preventing those who would transport their sick by night.
Throughout time, Sierra Leoneans have often sought relief from the tedium of long, hot, work-filled days by relaxing with friends and neighbors in the evenings. This new curfew may limit this, as well as opportunities to gather with seekers or other believers who are busy working during the day.
Pray that God will use this time of curfew for His glory. Ask God to help William and Ruth to be able to see how He is working to strengthen their faith and their relationship with Him during this time. Pray that they will be able to get their clinic and their Christian school, forced to close because of the Ebola outbreak, up and running again. Pray that they will not become discouraged by the challenges they face. *Names changed
