Born without her left hip and leg, it would have been easy for Michele Perry, BA ’99, to spend her lifetime focused on her own needs. Instead, caught up in the love of God, she has spent the last decade taking His love to the slums of India, orphanages in Central Asia, and now wartorn Sudan. She shares her story in the video below.
Doing something most said was crazy, she opened a home for orphaned children in the middle of guerrilla warfare territory and now serves as a mother to over 100 kids. “Most of our children have been orphaned, but we don’t call them orphans,” she says. “In the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom reality that we live in, there are no orphans. We all have a heavenly Father.”
To further share her story and what God is doing in such far-flung places, Perry has created not only a blog but also a book (Love Has a Face: Mascara, a Machete and One Woman’s Miraculous Journey with Jesus in Sudan) and released a documentary film (see the trailer here).
Sic ’em for your service, Michele!
