Little Boy Gets a Gift From a Complete Stranger And It Saves His Life

Blake Bahr was born with only one kidney and it was malformed. He immediately needed a kidney transplant to survive. His mother Heather shared her son’s story on Facebook and a Warrenton native Laurie Jansen happened to see it. When she saw Blake’s struggle, he thought about her mom, who had received a kidney transplant but needed another. But Laurie was not able to donate hers, and her mom died. So Laurie decided to help the little boy by donating her kidney. However, it was a perfect match. Blake is now a happy and active boy. The amazing act of kindness has brought two families together.

Verse of the Day

When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written: “‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.’” — Matthew 2:4-6 (NIV)
