Pray for Rain

Dear Raining Hope Friends,

I would like if you could join me in prayer for the nation of Uganda. Our home sent us word that they are experiencing a drought In Uganda. It has been a very long time since they last had rain. The government has been announcing over the radio that the drought conditions are on an increase and people are urged to store food. The price of everything has gone way up. The maize flour we purchase for posha has doubled in price. The price of beans is unbelievable. At the home, they are trying to cut down on the food cooked to help conserve and ration. They are trying to be good stewards of what we have.

Their prayer request is that things would get back to normal or this situation will get worse. They said that our town of Jinja did receive a little cloud of rain on Saturday. But that was the only place. The country as whole is in great need.

Even with this situation, the word from Raining Hope Children’s Home is, “The kids are doing well, only it is very hot and all things have been going up. But we are fine and praying for you in daily devotions.”

Please join me in prayer for our children and for the country of Uganda. If there was ever a time they needed rain…it is now.

Zechariah 10:1

1 Ask the LORD for rain in the springtime;
it is the LORD who sends the thunderstorms.
He gives showers of rain to all people,
and plants of the field to everyone.
