When Michael Peters of Omaha, Nebraska, was an infant in 1996, his parents heard the distressing news that his heart was terribly weak. He would need a transplant in order to survive. Their spirits were lifted once a donor became available.
Michael and his parents still honor the two-year-old heart donor and her family whose gift gave them hope and life.
“When I think about her now, I feel blessed,” said Michael. “Because of what they did, what she did, I was able to live.”
The need for organ donors is great and signing up isn’t necessarily complicated. Is it right for you?
I will pour out My spirit on all flesh. (Joel 2:28)
May we recognize the inherent dignity of our human bodies and revere all the lives You have created, Father.
