Jack and Edith Barris...Faith in Action!

Jack and Edith Barris are members of our Port Alfred Branch.  They live 45 minutes away in Alexandria.  Jack is 84 years old.  Edith is 76.  Six months ago Jack suffered a stroke which left him paralyzed on his right side.  He has had a remarkable recovery with Edith being his primary caregiver.  Because of is disability, they are only able to come to church once a month.  They have been given permission to hold sacrament meeting in their home each Sunday.  They faithfully do this along with study and prayer.  They are the only members in Alexandria.  They are a great example of "enduring to the end".  Theirs is a sweet love story.  We had the honor of spending two hours with them in their home on November 20th.
