A busy week for Dr. Kent Brantly, inspiring thousands of Christians in three states

The Ebola survivor spoke at his home congregation in Texas, Harding University in Arkansas and the Tulsa Workshop in Oklahoma.

FORT WORTH, Texas — Dr. Kent Brantly keeps inspiring.

This past week, the missionary doctor who survived Ebola shared his story with thousands of Christians in Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma:


Brantly read from 2 Corinthians 1:3-11 as he offered his “story of grace” Saturday, March 14, at the Southside Church of Christ in Fort Worth.

The 2003 graduate of Abilene Christian University in Texas spoke at the third annual “Day of Hope” at Southside, his home congregation.

“How the Lord works!” Southside member Nora Ramirez wrote on The Christian Chronicle’s Facebook page after hearing Brantly’s testimony. “Still brings me to tears!”

Brantly was the featured speaker Tuesday, March 17, in the American Studies Institute Distinguished Lecture Series at Harding University in Searcy, Ark. 

“God called us to be medical missionaries,” Brantly said at Harding, as reported by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. “Now, I have a platform to touch a lot of lives and remind them this epidemic is not over.”


On Friday night, March 20, Brantly delivered the keynote address at the Tulsa Workshop in Oklahoma.

He noted as he took the stage that he was feeling ill and had prayed all day that God would give him the physical strength — and voice — to speak.

Once again, God answered his prayers.
