Description

Termites for dinner. Bombs in the backyard...

A nation torn by decades of war, still on the brink. Can one life really make a difference here? Born without her left hip and leg, Michele Perry is no stranger to seeming impossibilities. So when she arrived in war-torn southern Sudan, with little more than faith in God's promises, she did what everyone told her was crazy: she opened a home for orphaned children in guerrilla warfare territory.

In this compelling audio-book, she recounts unforgettable stories of life in the bush, stories that capture the stark realities of caring for more than one hundred little lives in the middle of a war zone as well as God's transforming love and mercy. Captivatingly honest, Michele takes you through her own life as well. From the slums of India to war-ravaged Africa, you will be swept away by her story of hope and the supernatural power of God in the midst of a broken and hurting world.

A native of Florida, Michele studied at Baylor and has previously served in Bangladesh, India, and the inner cities of the U.S. She is also an artist, photographer, and poet.

  • (4/5)
    This book is written by an American missionary and how she started an orphange in war ravaged Sudan. Perry describes the multitude of ways God has shown his love for the children she cares for and others she encounters. Perry has witnessed many miracles that have ranged from God providing sufficient food to her children, just as their supplies had been depleted and people being cured of a range of disabilities and afflictions. While Sudan may seem a world away, much of the messages in Perry's book are applicable to our own lives; it is a poignant reminder that God is in control and loves us and there is hope where we may see none.

    Michelle Perry’s true-life story is both inspiring and moving, not to mention convicting. Born without a leg and surviving many surgeries in her early years, she went on to embrace the love of Jesus and seek to live out that love through her own life. Her journey eventually led her to Sudan in Africa where she currently lives amongst, ministers, evangelizes, and loves, a group of children and their communities as she seeks to spread the love of Christ.Reading about life in the Sudan is deeply touching, and I was moved to tears by reading of Perry’s experiences caring for the ‘least of these’ that she finds in need of prayer and attention there. Love Has a Face isn’t chronologically arranged, but is presented more in the form of vignettes or snapshots and jumps forwards and backwards through time as Perry reflects upon her journey and experiences.Readers uncomfortable with charismatic expressions and experiences of faith may find some of Perry’s writing off-putting as she speaks of seeing visions, encountering Jesus face to face, watching God heal through prayer, and more. Though I’m not charismatic, I found the sharing of her personal faith-walk inspiring, though it differs from my own.Perry calls each reader to delve more deeply into love with their Savior and work wherever god has placed them to spread that love abroad amongst those they are called to work with. Her faith-building story certainly reminds us that God is still very actively at work in the world around us.Reviewed at quiverfullfamily.com
