Samaritan’s Purse Presents
A story about faith and Ebola
The nationwide premiere of the compelling documentary, Facing Darkness, a True Story of Faith: Saving Dr. Brantly from Ebola in Africa. Following this moving story, audiences will hear exclusive insights from Franklin Graham, Dr. Kent Brantly and the Samaritan’s Purse team.
As the Ebola pandemic was sweeping across West Africa in the spring of 2014, one organization was willing to step up and commit its people and resources to provide comfort, compassion, and care to the hurting people of Africa, all in the Name of Jesus. But when the deadly virus infected its own medical personnel, including Dr. Kent Brantly, the epic crisis truly hit home for Samaritan’s Purse and its leader Franklin Graham. FACING DARKNESS tells the incredible true story of how—with faith, determination, and prayer—the ministry moved mountains … and God performed a miracle!
Following this moving story, audiences will hear from Samaritan’s Purse President Franklin Graham about the organization’s mission and Dr. Kent Brantly, the first American to survive Ebola, on how the relief team’s lives have changed since the epidemic in West Africa.
For individuals, groups, and families, Facing Darkness tells the true story of the pandemic that gripped the world—and the faith that stood in its path.
