Sierra Leone Surgeon Has Died at US Hospital

posted on November 17, 2014

United Methodist News Service’s Kathy L. Gilbert reports that Dr. Martin Salia has died from Ebola after he was transported to Nebraska Medical Center for treatment. Salia said of his work as a surgeon in Sierra Leone, “Whenever we want to start surgery, we pray. I am just being used as an instrument or as a surgeon to carry out God’s own plan for that person’s life.” Missouri River District Superintendent Dan Flanagan hoped efforts to support Salia and his family would encourage United Methodists to “be health advocates for all and respond more quickly to global health issues.”
