In the last post, I mentioned what it was like to go a day without water. It was definitely a new experience, but one that is a reality for so many people.
Lesotho is heading towards a huge drought. They didn’t get much snow in the mountains this winter, where a lot of the mountain areas often get water for crops, animals, and even people. There also wasn’t much of a rainy season last year.
Here in Maseru you can see the Caledon River is now a trickle. Water is getting low everywhere. Everything is still brown. When I arrived last year in October, things were green and that is only about two weeks away.
So, I ask you to join me in praying for rain for Lesotho. Pray for rain so the crops can grow. Pray for rain to wash away the dust. Pray for rain for the animals and people of Lesotho. Pray for rain since Lesotho’s biggest export is water in the form of hydroelectric power. Please pray for rain.
