I am praying again Awesome One.

You hear me again, as words
From the depths of me
Rush toward you in the wind.

I've been scattered in pieces,
Torn by conflict,
Mocked in laughter,
Washed down in drink.

In alleyways I sweep myself up
Out of garbage and broken glass.
With my half-mouth I stammer you,
Who are eternal in your symmetry.

I lift to you my half-hands
In wordless beseeching, that I may find again
The eyes with which I once beheld you.

I am a house gutted by fire
Where only the guilty sometimes sleep
Before the punishment that devours them
Hounds them out into the open.


It's here in all of the pieces of my shame
That now I find myself again.
I yearn to belong to something, to be contained
In an all-embracing mind that sees me
As a single thing.
I yearn to be held
In the great hands of your heart --
Oh let them take me now.
Into them I place these fragments, my life,
And you, God - spend them however you want.

Ranier Maria Rilke

Sue Whitely worked in a local church on the Mission's Committee and God spoke to her 25 years ago to serve in Nepal. Sue is in Bangkok undergoing medical treatment but is in spirit in Nepal. Susan is in Bhutan after in being in Nepal for 10 years. God loves Nepal just like every other nation.

Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world. Nepal is a nation of hospitality blessed with 8 of the 10 top mountains in the world. People are suffering even more with the earthquake. Landslides have taken away the roads to many villages. All 300 YWAMers are safe but deeply affected as they have lost friends and family. Next village to the YWAM base - close friends and neighbors who helped build YWAM base in Kathmandu. They lost all of their homes. What is God's heart for Nepal today? We wait on Him to hear his heart and how we can stand together with God today for Nepal.
