In July 2014, Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol received a death sentence. They were medical missionaries-Kent with international relief organization Samaritan's Purse and Nancy with SIM-working in ELWA Hospital in Liberia. As they fought a surging epidemic of the killer virus Ebola, a crisis the world largely ignored, Kent and Nancy caught the disease themselves. The team at Samaritan's Purse worked around the clock toward the only hope for Brantly and Writebol. It was something that had never been done-evacuate the Ebola patients to the U.S. for treatment and cure. From Executive Producer Franklin Graham, president and CEO of Samaritan's Purse, FACING DARKNESS weaves a gripping, miraculous, true story of fighting fear with faith amid the heroic efforts to get Brantly and Writebol home, save their lives and drive the world to action against the Ebola epidemic. Written by Samaritan's Purse

This movie was a reminder of how complacent we can get living in a great country that provides us with everything while there are those, such as in Liberia, that are living in poverty. The Godly men and women serving as missionaries in Liberia are an example of how God can use those willing to serve to improve the quality of lives everywhere. To leave the comforts of home and serve in a country such as Liberia is humbling while also awesome to fathom. This movie shows how God is in full control of everything even when circumstances seem overwhelming. I highly recommend this movie, and it will surely stir up many questions and topics for discussion. Well done.
