Gratitude for Life-by Brenda Jansen
Gratitude for life. . .
that’s what the man expressed to Perry as he greeted him that Sunday morning. He was one of many patients who had nearly given up on life. His wife had died, and he was so frail that he could no longer walk. But there he was, healthy again, his perspective on what’s important forever changed. Observing this man pray and sing praises to the Lord in our church’s worship service is more than heartwarming. His story is one of many that add to Perry’s passion for his job here in Malawi. It’s about people getting off their deathbeds, returning to work, resuming the care of their children. It’s about offering hope to the nearly hopeless.
