Called for Life ~ Kent and Amber Brantly

This is a very touching and inspiring true story.  What do you do when you know GOD is calling you to take your family out of your home country of  comfort and into a world of concern?  GOD is telling you to move to Liberia and very care for those that are infected with Ebola. This is that story, Kent is a doctor that moves he and his family to Liberia and attempt to stop the spread of the deadly disease.  When Kent contracts Ebola and becomes another person that needs to be treated, we learn the heartache and what he goes through.

This is the side that the media did not talk or show you,  this is the real story.  This book goes into the hearts of the people that suffered, lost loved ones and how they were never educated on this epidemic.  It shows love and compassion in a way that makes you think, would I do the same? 

I recommend this book for everyone to read, it is an eye opener to how the other side of the world doesn't get educated as we do in the United States.  It shows the side of how we have the ability to go to a hospital and what these people had to endure to get to a hospital.  A very moving and must read book!!  I couldn't put this book down and read parts out loud to my husband to make him also aware of what really happened and how the media only told us parts of the "real truth".
