Ebola virus! The idea of it sends chills down our spines, doesn’t it?
Okay, so forget anything you might have scheduled for April 10th, and go see the movie FACING DARKNESS about world medical missions, Africa and Ebola!
As the Ebola pandemic was sweeping across West Africa in the spring of 2014, Samaritan’s Purse was willing to step up and fully commit its people and resources to provide comfort, compassion, and care to the hurting people of Africa—all in the Name of Jesus. But when the deadly virus infected its own medical personnel, including Dr. Kent Brantly, the epic crisis truly hit home for Samaritan’s Purse and its leader Franklin Graham. FACING DARKNESS tells the incredible true story of how—with only faith, determination, and prayer—the ministry moved mountains…and God performed miracles!
We had family see the movie last night and said, “Wow! You have got to go and see this movie!”
I went right to the site and found all the information I needed. I have already sent for the “group ticket” information. The movie will be shown in our area April 10th. We will be sharing all this info at church on Sunday and signing up anyone who wants to go as a group. Be sure to check with your local theater regarding group discounts.
About World Medical Mission
World Medical Mission was established in 1977 to assist general surgeons who wanted to volunteer for short-term mission trips. Today, hundreds of volunteer Christian physicians, dentists, and other medical personnel work in mission hospitals and clinics around the world. In addition, our Post-Residency Program, through which Dr. Kent Brantly served, is a fully funded two-year program for Christian physicians and their families who have been called to medical missions.
