AP-US-Ebola-Missionaries-Return,388

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — David Writebol and his wife, Nancy, expected to enter a world of poverty, pain and suffering when they left home last year for missionary work in Liberia. They accepted the risks, having faith that God would ensure their safety.

So when a doctor told Writebol that the deadly Ebola virus had infected his wife, he knew where to turn: "This is something that God has given us in our lives, and God is going to sustain us through it," Writebol said.

Writebol and two other missionaries have been quarantined at the SIM USA charity's sprawling campus just south of Charlotte, while his wife remains in isolation at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.

"Each time I talk to her, I get a sense that her voice is clearer and brighter and so I'm imagining that she's getting stronger," he said. She's still "very weak," he added, but "from everything that I'm hearing we're making good progress."
