Praying For Rain!

As many of you already know, our little island is in a drought at the moment.  The situation seemed to have gotten bad very quickly with little warning.   A week ago our running water was shut off, as was most of the island's water supply.  As you can imagine, there was a bit of a panic on the island when the last of the drinking water was sold out last Thursday afternoon.  We had some rain over the weekend which allowed us a brief time of water again, though at a very low pressure and really muddy looking.  As of now, in town the water is shut off from 10 AM until 5 PM each day.  As a result, the drinking water companies are able to open again!  In our area however, there is no water at all.  We had a water catchment that had been damaged in a storm last year but we have since been able to repair the catchment and fill it during the time the water was on for a short period.  That is the water we are relying on for now.  However, without rain, this will not last long.  Please pray with us for rain!  We will keep you updated on the situation here.
