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.

Drought

According to my fruiend Hennie at the local Shell garage, South Africa is suffering from the worst drought in over 80 years. There was almost no rain over winter. Rivers are dry and trees are dying. Wells and bore holes are running dry, and the sugar cane is less than half its usual size, with sugar yields down from 95% to 35% per cane. Please continue to join us in praying for rain. Its not too late to save the sugar harvest and the livelihoods of tens of thousands of Zulu farm-workers. Olly
