“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 her faith in God’s promises–she did what everyone told was crazy: she opened a home for orphaned children in the middle of guerilla warfare territory and has now become “mama” to over one hundred little lives.
With a deft pen, she recounts unforgettable stories of life in the bush, stories that capture the reader with the stark realities of living in a war zone—and the power of God’s love to transform them. Her own story is just as compelling as the ministry she is living. From working in the slums of India to finding her home in war-ravaged Africa, her life has been a journey deeper into the spernatural power of God.
Captivatingly honest, readers will be swept up in one woman’s poignant, spellbinding journey of love and the glimpses of God’s tender grace and mercy in the midst of a broken and hurting world.” –from the back cover
“Michele Perry has captured the message of revival in her life and in her book. It is the message of love. The message of His heart. I pray that as you read this book, your heart will be enlarged and you will become so immersed in Jesus that your eyes are opened to see Him in the lost and broken.” —from the foreword by Heidi Baker, Ph.D., founding director, Iris Ministries, Inc.
“Michele Perry’s Love Has a Face is an incredible book. Facing her own insurmountable obstacles, Michele was born without her left hip and leg. By the time she was thirteen, she had endured 23 surgeries. In midst of these difficulties, Jesus Himself came to Michele and called her to bring His love to ‘the least of these.’ Leaving the security of America, Michele has become a one-legged ambassador of love–first to the slums of India and now to the war-torn regions of Southern Sudan. Michele is transforming one of the most dangerous spots on earth, one child at a time, by the loving heart of Jesus. This moving and amazing story will inspire you, too, to be the face of transforming love right where you live. We cannot say enough about Michele and her work. You have to read this book!” —Wesley and Stacey Campbell, RevivalNOW Ministries; Be A Hero (NGO); board members, Iris Ministries
“Michele Perry’s book, Love Has a Face, is the amazing story of her work with the orphans in Sudan amidst a war-torn populace. It is the inspiring, heart-touching, faith-building story of one of God’s greats who, instead of becoming bitter over severe birth defects, has been transformed into a modern-day super-hero of the faith. It is not only about the work Michele is doing, but the work one can detect between the lines that God has done and is doing in her, and the importance of the relationship of these two works. I encourage all to read Love Has a Face, for in doing so, we will have a better picture of The Face, His face. Michele is the real thing and has written about one of the most important things on the Lord’s heart. I hold Michele and her book in high regard and deep respect.” —Randy Clark, president and founder, Global Awakening; overseer, Apostolic Network of Global Awakening; founder, Global School of Supernatural Ministry
“Perry’s tender story may very well change your life. Embrace every word!” —Beverly Lewis, New York Times bestselling author
“Compelling! The words flow from Perry in a conversational style that makes it impossible to stop reading. Born with severe birth defects, Perry endured trauma and experienced rejection as a child that most never will know. Her college encounters radically changed her and propelled her on a lifelong journey with Jesus.
“Perry paints a beautiful picture of what it means to follow God, from India to Sudan, with many stops along the way. She recounts with great detail her life ministry with orphans and the poorest of the poor. The book is more than a story of personal journey, however. Perry reminds us ‘we are invited to join a global tribe of sons and daughters of their Father in heaven whose silence is louder than the shouts of multitudes, whose prayers are stronger than the decrees of kings, whose authority is found in humility, whose gaze is fixed on eternity, whose lives are found in giving them away.'” –Karen E. Jones, Youthworker Journal
“This a great book for those looking for direction or needing encouragement. Michele’s testimonies tell the story of someone whose absolute dependence on God ultimately gave her success and satisfaction in ways she never would have dreamed.” –OnCourse Magazine, oncourse.ag.org
