Love Has a Face by Michele Perry


Mascara, a Machete, and One Woman's Miraculous Journey with Jesus in Sudan...

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.

Michele Perry is the founding field ministry coordinator for Iris Ministries in southern Sudan under Rolland and Heidi Baker. A native of Florida, she studied at Baylor and has previously served in Bangladesh, India and hte inner cities of the United States. She is also an artist, photographer and poet.
