“Mum, just go!” I wasn’t interested, but when my daughter said those three words, something in my heart changed. Since then, I have been on an eight-year journey, looking for yaks and finding the call of God in Nepal. I never thought I fit the missionary profile. There were always so many reasons why not. But in Nepali they ask, kina nahunu? Why not?
When people ask me, “Why Nepal?” I answer, “Why not?”
From my tropical home in Cairns, Australia to the freezing trekking trails of Everest, the peaceful rural villages of the Terai and the pumping tourist streets of Kathmandu, I found myself falling in love with Nepal and her people.
You Can’t Ride a Yak tells the fascinating story of how adventure travel, faith and a determination to find and follow your purpose launched a charity called Wise Woman Project. It also shows how you never really know unless you go. I did.
If you have ever asked God to ‘send you’, He can and He will. Just go.
