This is going to be short sweet, and cold hearted. God damn it doctors without borders, missionaries and generally naive and dangerous people going to Africa: PLEASE DONT COME HOME. I understand the willingness to go help people. I do. I really do. BUT can you people please stay brave and NOT COME HOME TO KILL PEOPLE! If you are willing to risk your life, then RISK YOUR LIFE. Not ours. If you get sick, stay there like you originally committed to. If you arent sick, good, KEEP "Helping" people THERE. I dont care about a single moral consideration. I will LIVE being immoral if I must. You can die and go to heaven...

I've come under demonic attack twice through a precarious set of circumstances the criteria of which don't fit the standard model for these events.
