Allow me to introduce you more fully to this Super Sunday’s guest speaker. Dr. Kent Brantly is a Family Medicine physician who served as a medical missionary in Monrovia, Liberia from October 2013 to August 2014. Dr. Brantly’s undergraduate degree is in Biblical Text from Abilene Christian University. He earned his medical degree from Indiana University School of Medicine.
In the spring of 2014, Dr. Brantly found himself fighting from the front lines in the battle against the deadliest Ebola outbreak to ever occur and was appointed as Medical Director for what would become the only Ebola Treatment Unit in southern Liberia. Soon after, on July 26, he was diagnosed with Ebola Virus Disease, capturing media headlines around the world. He became the first person with Ebola to be treated in the United States when he was evacuated to Emory University Hospital.
At times, he felt like he would die as the virus ravaged his body. But he maintained his faith and prayed God would be glorified through his life or his death.
One of Time Magazine’s 2014 Persons of the Year, Dr. Brantly now serves as Medical Missions Advisor for Samaritan’s Purse and is the co-author, along with his wife Amber, of Called for Life, released last July and available for $20 in our lobby Sunday. He feels it his privilege and duty to speak out on behalf of the people of West Africa who continue to suffer from the scourge of Ebola and to serve as an ambassador for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Share the word and invite a friend to hear Dr. Brantly’s compelling and inspirational message this Sunday. 8:30am & 11:00am.
