In Search of Water

Following a prolonged drought and years of mismanagement, Kenya is currently facing an acute water crisis. Agricultural production has dropped dramatically across the country while urban centers such as Nairobi are unable to provide residents with adequate water supplies. Long lines are common at water filling stations and some residential neighborhoods have gone without running water for as many as three months. At our apartment in South B we have running water one day per week on average. Unfortunately the pressure isn't enough to shower or flush the toilet, but it does allow us to collect and store enough water to last for the week. Please pray for the rains and for the water situation in Kenya.
