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

Ebola Story
30 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very well done documentary about the Ebola crisis in Liberia and the two non-profit organizations that jumped in to help the sick. The focus was on the efforts done by the Christian ministry of Samaritan's Purse. We saw Ebola through the eyes of the doctors, nurses, and support staff as they cared for the infected and tried to avoid infection of themselves. Faith in God does not ensure our safety. Sometimes it brings us into difficulties.
