It has really been a long time since my last blog, and much has transpired since then. We have seen many commit their lives to Christ, be baptized, and are on their way to being disciples who make disciples. All of your prayers for these are appreciated.
But tonight, I am asking for prayer in a different area, and the situation is becoming desperate. We need rain. Normally the rains come in October. This year, we are past mid-November, and we have had no measurable rain. We have had a couple of dust settlers, but those evaporate in a few minutes. The reservior is lower than I have seen it…there are several places where you can see land in the middle of the reservior. For those of you who have been fishing with me back near the foot bridge (past Ha Suoane), the water is low enough that I can jump across the river there…and for those of you who have not, the water is usually about 150 yards wide under that bridge. Crops are wilting as I type. Many villages have run out of water. As we are visiting villages, the number 1 prayer request is “pula”(rain). What a testimony it would be for our God to show HIs power and glory to answer these prayers.
The predictions and forecasts on the radio are not giving much hope…rain sometime in February or March. Would you join me in praying that God will bring rain, both physically and spiritually, to a dry and weary land?
Until ALL have heard, Jim
