Update on Ebola

Greetings from Sierra Leone! To God be the glory! Great things He has done; let us continue to praise Him. In the past weeks I had the opportunity to visit Bo -, Kenema - and Bonthe districts. These areas were no go area for the past eight months but thank God that the government has lifted the travel ban; we can now travel as usual.

  • 13 out of the 14 districts continue to report zero new cases. For the past two weeks Western area and Port Loke Districts report new cases, but on lower double digit (10 and below)
  • Preparation for the reopening of schools continues. The government has appointed a committee to speed the work towards the reopening of schools in March. Kenema and Kailahun, where Ebloa was reported first, has gone over 42 day plus without any reported case.
  • My Faith UB church has started their first children’s church. The children continue to come to the Lord every Sunday.
  • From his report this morning the CEO of the Ebola-Centres said that the beds at the epicenters are empty; - that means the situation is under control.
