Dry Season


We are hopefully coming to the end of the dry season in Kibaale. The rain has already come to many of the villages around us, but here, we are still waiting. The line-ups at the local bore holes have been getting longer and longer as tanks dry up, ours included. This is especially hard on the farmers, nothing is growing.

It has been a great chance for us to teach our kids about daily chores and remind them how good they have it! For the past month they have each walked to the well everyday to fill their jerry cans up. 

Everyone is praying the rain comes soon.



Taking a break, it's heavy!!



OH, the dust!!!
