Sarah Thompson will be spending her Christmas break donating part of her liver to help save a friend who is suffering from Byler’s Disease. She will forever win the “how you spending your xmas break” contest at her house.
I’m amazed on several levels. First of all, I didn’t know you could do this – give part of your liver and survive it. Our bodies are amazing and medical science is amazing, too. Personally, it’s just such a rare act of friendship. I am in awe of anyone who learns to embrace to love of neighbor in very practical ways – it has the power to transform everything. I could work my whole life for the church and never do something so purely holy.
