Please pray for our friends and coworkers as well as the city of Dakar. They have been out of water for two weeks now and are going into their third week. With the lack of water comes the risk of Cholera. There have also been protests due to the water shortage.
The barrel above sure is a help when the water goes out for a few hours or maybe even a few days, but would definitely not be enough for a few weeks.
It is hard to imagine what it might be like to be without water, an idea is to pray every time you find yourself using water. (i.e. flushing the toilet, taking a shower, getting a drink, using ice, washing laundry, washing your hands, preparing a meal etc.) This is the hottest time of the year in Dakar.
