I love my morning showers. Hot water. Shampooed and conditioned hair; the clean feeling leaves me ready for the day.
My appreciation grows today.
It's the dry season in Uganda. The last rain in this part of the country was November 13. The next rains will begin in late February or early March. In the meantime, wells are the main water source.
Visiting the refugee camp here in Uganda we see firsthand the water shortage. Long lines at the water pumps. Dry, cracked ground where there used to be water for laundry and livestock. Very few vegetables available.
A water pipe broke and people rushed to fill their containers because the taps wouldn't be open since the water was all rushing through the break in the line. Now they are filtering the water with the Sawyer and sharing with the neighbors.
Tonight when I shower to wash off the dust and dirt of the day, I'll thank God for water and ask Him to direct us as we seek to do our small part in the world's water crisis.
