The rainy season usually begins in the middle of March, so guess what? The real rainy season started today. For the next two months, we will get four to five hours of rain a day (or night) driven by strong winds. These rains can destroy huts and mudbrick homes. They turn the roads into rivers and sometimes cut large chasms across them, but still we plod on. We keep petrol for the generator which we will use six hours a day or so for the next two months. For all that, we are truly blessed compared to the Japanese affected by the earthquake and tidal wave. We are praying for them round the clock. It is hard to truly understand the enormity of the disaster, but I can see the tear-streaked faces on the tv. It breaks your heart. Join us in our prayers.
