We depend on the rain and our gutters to fill our 3,800 Liter cistern. Even we are amazed that the rains can stop for more than 12 days being so close to the end of the cyclone season. To add to the dry times the water system for the whole town has been broken with no indication that the government is working on a solution. July through September are our drought months where we really try to stretch out water so this dry-spell caught us unprepared. The gasoline powered water pump was stored for more than 18 months without use. The pull string was rotten and the carburetor was clogged.
We depend on water daily. We are thankful for those who gave to the Lottie Moon Offering which provided our family with this pump.
- that we balance our time well between getting the essentials for daily living but also ministering to the Tanala.
- that God give us wisdom as we make decisions in life and ministry.
- for our safety as we travel.
