MOBERLY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri man is among the hundreds of Peace Corps volunteers being evacuated from three West African nations affected by the worst recorded Ebola outbreak in history.

Liz Sosniecki (sahz-NEHK’-ee) of Moberly heard from her 25-year-old son, Dane Sosniecki, on Wednesday. He told her he was coming home and would be back in the United States on Saturday. He’s with the Peace Corps in Liberia and has been there only six weeks.

Sosniecki says she shares her son’s disappointment that his volunteer work has been interrupted. He’s been training to be a high school math teacher in Liberia, his assignment during an anticipated two-year stint.

On his blog, Dane Sosniecki wrote Wednesday: “I am willing to accept the possibility of contracting Ebola to do what I think is right.”
