There is no greater gift than the gift of life. While perusing her Reddit feed last fall, Jennifer Moss came across a desperate plea from 26-year-old Kayla Davis. Davis had been on daily kidney dialysis for three years. She needed a kidney transplant and the wait for a kidney in her portion of the U.S. was three to five years.
Jennifer, whom Kayla had never met, knew that she lived in the same state and had the same blood type as Kayla. She agreed to further testing which proved her kidney was a good match for Kayla. So what did she do? She gave one of her kidneys to a total stranger in need.
If God blesses us for giving a cup of cold water to a stranger in the name of Jesus, how much more does He bless us for giving a life saving kidney? -- Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
