“L-O-V-E. It is a small four-letter word that will cost us everything. It means laying down our lives each day… Walking in passion for the Lord and compassion for the lives He places around us. It means giving without expecting, feeling His very heartbeat and surrendering to His rhythm as we follow the Lamb wherever He goes.”
-Michele Perry, Director of Iris Ministries South Sudan

“No matter what the question, love is the answer… We are called to live a life of Loves’ arrested gaze. Captured in the arms of Jesus and as we dance together with Him, the harvest will come in. It isn’t about writing a case study in missiology, but living a love story where heaven converges with earth.”
-Michele Perry, Director of Iris Ministries South Sudan

“Every other night we hear the high pitch death wail. But does it ever stop hurting… no. Not when it is your loved one or little child. Yet is our God bigger than death? Is love as strong as death, as unyielding the grave? Absolutely.
Death would have to give back the dead before love would give up its loved ones. Love is AS STRONG as death. Death in the Kingdom is NEVER final. EVER. In the Kingdom it always gives way to life– either the dead are raised or go on to enter into the Life that never ends with Jesus.
Today we learned a little more what it is like being Sudanese. A little more what it is like in a place of utter hopelessness. A little more what it means to be sacrificial love in the place of pain.”
-Michele Perry, Director of Iris Ministries South Sudan
