Water and Electricity

I remember when we lived in Maine, we had occasional droughts, and we had to measure the depth of the water in our well regularly.  I thought that water supply was one thing that we would never have to consider here in Shell, Ecuador, “on the edge of the rain forest.”

I was wrong.

Ecuador is experiencing their worst drought in decades.  Since Ecuador is so dependent on hydro-electric power, the government has begun to ration electricity.  We have had the power turned off for 4-6 hours most every day.

A while ago, we had issues with the water supply as well.  We are still keeping an eye on that.

Please join us in praying for rain.
