"I said I want to touch the earth, I want to break it in my hands. I want to grow something wild and unruly..."

"I want adventure in the great wide somewhere, I want it more than I can tell. And for once it might be grand, to have someone understand, I want so much more than they're got planned..."

I want to sit with girls in Cambodia and show them how treasured they are, and precious. I want to be with women in the DRC and, through the tears, show them how to heal and stand above their abuse. I want to be with the children of genocide, forgotten and abandoned, and help them discover who they are and what they can be, and help them create a new identity for what it means to be a survivor.

"Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?" (Isaiah 58:6)

What do You have for me?
