Heavy Rain

We had huge amounts of rain last night, and then more this afternoon. Showers on the mountain came rushing down to us and flooded some areas. Some of our neighbors have had water in their homes, and have needed to sleep elsewhere; some have lost crops; some have had food and household items swept away by the current. Please pray for those who are struggling in this difficult time – for joy in trial, for faith that grips the solid promises of God, for ears to hear the word of the gospel, for daily bread. Please also pray that the Lord would send the right amount of water at the right time and give a successful harvest!

This is our “driveway.” We normally have water here, but not this much.

This is the path to the clinic. Water doesn’t usually flow through here, but people say it was up to their necks yesterday. It is still flowing fast.

The ends of the bridge were submerged, and the water on either end of the bridge was up to my knees.

On an unrelated note, it looks like we cannot access Facebook at the moment. Tomorrow is President Museveni’s inauguration day, and Facebook has probably been temporarily blocked as a security measure.
