Dr. Kent Brantly prays at National Prayer Breakfast
Dr. Kent Brantly, who contracted Ebola while serving as a medical missionary in Liberia, led a prayer before President Barack Obama and leaders of the U.S. Congress during the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington Feb. 5.
Brantly grew up in the pews of the Southeastern Church of Christ in Indianapolis, where his sister attends and his father and two uncles have served as elders. A graduate of Abilene Christian University in Texas, he and his wife, Amber, worshiped with the Southside Church of Christ in Fort Worth before committing to work as full-time medical missionaries. Kent Brantly served in a post-residency program in Liberia overseen by medical mission Samaritan’s Purse.
