Dr. Paul Perry

I have had so many things that I have been praying for lately a friend who is getting 80 percent of her intestines removed, another friend who is having his colon removed, a friend who just lost her mother to cancer, a young man who just committed suicide, a niece that I miss so much, a sister in Christ who's father just had a heart attack and had his leg amputated, any way there are so many other things as well that I could list but I have been so burdened and grieved over Dr. Paul Perry that founded OBGYN/South. He has a rare cancer and I have kept up with him every day and been praying for him through the caringbridge site. Anyway, God has used his hands to heal so many and my doctor, Dr. Adcock, has been mentored by him as well and has helped me tremendously with pelvic pain and etc.
Last night he posted this video and I just sat in my room and bawled my eyes out as I watched him. The thing is...I don't even know him personally but he is my brother in Christ. I have prayed for him so much that I have taken it personal. I love our connection in Christ. I have such admiration for this man of integrity and faith, who is still seeking Him will all of his strength. Y'all our lives are so short. We don't know the day or hour. Think about that. Seek to honor Him like Dr. Perry. I am still fighting in prayer that God would heal him on this earth until I hear otherwise. I am so blessed by Him.

I sit here through tears - that was so powerful and amazing.
I will pray for him and his family.
I can not imagine the sadness they must be feeling confronting the death of their father/husband.
It is wonderful to see the love for God and the witness he is being to others
Thank you for sharing this

I cannot wait to get to see this video. I will try to remember to be in prayer for him. I love you, I know your heart is burdened.

What strength of faith! My hand was on him praying for healing. May God be glorified through his life.

That man is amazing. He is not bitter or sad or mad, he accepts what he feels is God's fate for him and is praising him and spreading his word up until the end. WOW!

Yes, my dear friend is one of his nurses. I know his staff and patients are very sad, not to mention his family. What a great testimony to have so many people who love him. It shows the good he has sown, and continues to sow, in the name of the Lord. And I am selfishly sad because he was going to be the one to do an upcoming surgery for me.

I'm sorry - I sounded like a snot for my last comment. Yes, I am sad that Dr. Perry will not be able to do my surgery, but I know that is a small thing considering what he, his family, staff, patients and so many people are experiencing right now. I didn't mean to sound as if it is all about me. :(
