Praise the Lord! When I opened my email today (March 16) ... the subject line said, "Rain is Here!" They said, "Yesterday we received a lot of rain, and today it has also rained a lot. It is an answer to prayer. Its like we are seeing rain for the very first time" God has answered prayer!
Here is the thank you from our family in Uganda...
"First and foremost, we want to thank your continued prayers for our country. For the past two days its been raining around the country, and we are very grateful for that. We know that it's out of prayers that we are receiving this rain. Everyone was worried. The prices of every thing has gone unbelievably high."
I pulled up the national weather report...and they are predicting thundershowers and shattered showers for the next 10 days! Amen!
Pray that prices of food and supplies will come back down to normal. Prices had tripled and doubled for many items during the drought. They just bought a bag of beans for about $100 when normal cost is closer to $50 to $60. Pray for us that God will provide for these extra costs.
Yesterday, my daily reading took me to Psalm 68. I prayed verses 7-10, that God would answer our prayers for rain...
"...the heavens poured down rain, before God, the One of Sinai, before God, the God of Israel. You gave abundant showers, O God; you refreshed your weary inheritance. Your people settled in it, and from your bounty, God, you provided for the poor."
Our God is good! Thank you for caring for our children. Pray for the rain to continue!
