Love Has A Face

By: Michele Perry

(information taken from the David C. Cook website)

Unforgettable Memoir of a Woman Bringing the Love of Jesus to the Orphans of Sudan

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 supernatural 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.

Love Has A Face is a beautiful memoir! I adored Perry's conversational writing style. I was drawn in to the story immediately by her descriptions of the place and people she worked with. The author's passion is evident in the pages. It is well written and definitely inspirational. This book brought tears to my eyes and made me want to scoop up those beautiful Sudanese babies in my arms and bring them home with me. This is a wonderfully powerful book with an amazing message.
