Ebola Doesn’t Stop 93-year-old’s return to Sierra Leone

In early September, 2014, 93-year-old Dr. Lowell Gess bought a plane ticket to Sierra Leone.

The earliest booking he could get was Jan. 3, 2015, but Gess was determined to provide whatever services he could to fight Ebola in a country that had been a second home to him.

In a report he wrote after his return in early March, the retired United Methodist missionary did note that at the time he bought the ticket he thought that perhaps three months would give him pause to think about going into the lion’s den. If it did give him pause, it didn’t stop him.

The founder of Methodism, John Wesley best said it, “In the hands of (God’s) children, it is food for the hungry, drink for the thirsty, raiment for the naked. It gives to the traveler and the stranger where to lay his head. By it we may supply the place of a husband to the widow, and of a father to the fatherless. We may be a defense for the oppressed, a means of health to the sick, of ease to them that are in pain. It may be as eyes to the blind, as feet to the lame: yea, a lifter up from the gates of death!” Voltaire said, “Every man is guilty of all the good he did not do.”
