Greetings to everyone in the name of Jesus! Summer’s over but there is still plenty of sunshine and heat. For everyone over on your wide of the pond, the big chill is over and spring’s in the air.
The worst drought in living memory has struck the city and the Western Cape Province. We are on severe water restrictions, limited to 10 gallons per person per day for all use. Day Zero was scheduled for April, then May and now perhaps postponed if the winter rains arrive in May/June. The Cape has always been blessed with winter rainfall and everyone has had to learn to do with less. Our African brethren are the worst effected, particularly the IngweCare/TLC children’s ministries. However, with Walt’s help, we are approaching IDES to install huge water tanks for their use. The drought will have serious knock-on effects since crops yields aren’t nearly as fruitful. Increase prices have already bitten.
