This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

Water Off

Its our second day without a water tanker delivery to Appelsbosch. This means that we have no running cold water. The only water we have available is from the hot taps, which comes from big storage tanks on the roofs. So we have to bucket flush the toilets with water from the hot tap:

and drink the water from the hot tap (yuk!), and wash in it if its not already too hot already. Praise God for the tanks on the roof, although they will be running dry if we don't get a delivery soon. Please pray for rain. The countryside is parched, and the farmers are facing a serious problems if the spring rains don't come soon. We need the water table to rise again, quickly. Olly
