I’ve hoped and prayed for a permanent home for Wang nai nai ever since I heard her story. After meeting with a highly influential woman in her 70s who has contacts coming out of the wazoo in every sphere of society and in every high place, she has helped find a home and even governmental support for Wang nai nai.
Now the challenge is in getting this nai nai connected to this help. I pray that she’ll receive this much-needed support quickly. There is a block concerning someone’s opinion on how to approach giving this help which is maddening because I believe the most important thing in this situation is that nai nai has a nurturing environment asap so that she will not have to roam from house to house every few days desperately seeking a safe home… what a horrific way to live. Every human being has the inherent right to not only a loving community and family but to dignified living conditions, food and the ability to take care of their health among a host of other rights.
What else is burning in my heart today? Psalm 84
Verse 10: “I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked.”
This verse has lit a fire (huge) in my heart as of last night… what else truly satisfies us in this ephemeral world? Not riches, fame, even our spouse can’t fill the God-sized vaccuum in our hearts.
