Liyana (Rain)

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.

I've decided to uproot my life and dedicate it to serving in the Peace Corps for 27 months. Yuuuuup, you read that right. God has helped me redefine limitations. A dear friend once told me that, "boxes are for shoes, you never know how great you are until you break out of the box and see what you are really made of!" This blog will chronicle my adventures as a Peace Corps Youth Development Volunteer in the Kingdom of Swaziland! You'll read about my highest of highs compounded with the lowest of lows - raw and unfiltered. Please enjoy the view. :) *The contents of this blog are mine and do not reflect any position of the U.S. government or the Peace Corps.*
