Native believers treating patients in Liberia

Holy, Holistic Health in Liberia

Nurses for a ministry based in Liberia have long helped to treat illness where the crowded, unhygienic conditions of poverty contribute to the rapid spread of disease – and the Ebola virus. Liberia accounts for nearly half of the 5,000 people killed by Ebola, followed by Sierra Leone and Guinea. The native workers of the ministry in Liberia care for orphaned and abandoned children, as well as civil war refugees, sharing the gospel in a country where more people trust in fetishes than in Christ. The native ministry has planted dozens of churches and seeks to reach idol worshipers in the interior and counter the spread of Islam, which is growing with heavy funding from outside the country.
