BOONE, N.C. — The two American missionaries being treated for Ebola at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta are said to be improving, according to WSOC-TV.

Samaritan’s Purse released an update Dr. Kent Brantly wrote from inside his isolation unit Friday.

“I am growing stronger every day,” wrote Brantly. “I thank God for His mercy as I have wrestled this terrible disease.”

Brantly revealed he and his family didn’t move to Liberia specifically to fight Ebola. He said he felt it was their calling to work in the missionary hospital and his focus changed as more and more people became infected with the disease.

“I held the hands of countless individuals as this terrible disease took their lives away from them. I witnessed the horror firsthand and can still remember every face and name,” he wrote.
