Son Prays For His Ebola-Stricken Medical Missionary Mom

The son of a North Carolina missionary says that his mother is fighting the Ebola virus while in Liberia.

Jeremy Writebol in Wichita, Kansas, told NBC’s “Today” show on Wednesday that he’s been able to talk with Nancy Writebol as she fights the illness.

He says that his mother is able to move around the home where she’s in isolation and has been able to get plenty of fluids.

Jeremey Writebol says, however, that he’s concerned about his father, David Writebol, who was exposed before his wife learned of her condition. Jeremy Writebol said that his father is feeling fine and is checking his temperature every six hours to monitor his condition.

The Writebols’ Charlotte, North Carolina, church plans a special prayer service Wednesday night for her and Kent Brantly, another medical missionary fighting the same disease.
