On November 6, Jeff Bleijerveld received this note from John Pessima, bishop of Sierra Leone Conference.
“It is sad to announce that a family in our church at Kissy (Au Memorial Church) died yesterday of Ebola. Mr. Vandie Lansana Samuka, his wife, and two children were buried last evening by the burial team. Nobody is allowed in the home for now until after 21 days.
“Please continue to pray for us as they are planing to quarantine Bo this weekend. This thing is getting worse. We are all afraid, not knowing what will happen next.”
The conference headquarters is located in Bo, the country’s second-largest city.
