FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21ALIVE) --- The Ebola outbreak in Africa is starting to get the attention of the world, but for some time, it has been a frightening story for two Fort Wayne men with a connection to that area.
Steve Harrington is an American missionary, who grew up in Sierra Leon. He was in West Africa in April and May, already seeing the grips of the Ebola virus.
Francis Mustapha is a retired Fort Wayne Community Schools teacher who has used his retirement to start a school in his native village, Madina, Sierre Leone. Mustapha was planning a trip to Sierre Leone in August, but that journey has been put on hold due to the outbreak.

The album features photos of Harrigan's previous missionary work.
