I’m currently sitting in the teachers lounge soak and wet from this mornings rain. It’s a bit uncomfortable and as much as I want to grumble and complain I let out a huge sigh of relief.
Swaziland is recovering from a terrible drought. The whole country is suffering – people are crying out for water, the rivers are drying up, the fields aren’t growing which in turn leave people with no food, and livestock are getting wiped out. It’s been so heartbreaking to watch this all unfold. Although not to the same extent, I can sorta see how the Israelites felt during the seven years of drought.
I have to continue to pray for rain and the days of drought to end because the rains here mean life.
