Two Americans, including a female missionary from Charlotte-based SIM, continue their battle to fight off the deadly Ebola virus in Monrovia, Liberia on July 29, 2014. Dr. Kent Brantly (not shown) and Nancy Writebol (right) are serving on a joint team of people with Samaritan's Purse and SIM. Both faith-based organizations are calling for an international response to the outbreak of Ebola in Liberia and neighboring countries.

ATLANTA, GA. — Missionary David Writebol cleared quarantine and visited his wife Nancy who is being treated for Ebola at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, according to WSOC.

David Writebol issued a statement Monday saying he and Nancy are very grateful for the outpouring of prayers and well-wishes.

Writebol shows no symptoms of Ebola after completing the 21-day medical monitoring period that is mandated by local and state public health authorities. He was then able to travel to Atlanta to be with his wife.

“I have had the great joy to be able to look through the isolation room glass and see my beautiful wife again. We both placed our hands on opposite sides of the glass, moved with tears to look at each other again,” Writebol said.
