Another Day is Here

Another Day is Here

I grew up in a temperate rain forest. While it didn’t rain all the time, we certainly got more than our share. As a kid who loved to explore outside (I still do) I was never happy when the rain interfered with my latest plan for adventure. In the hopes that it might work, we used to sing the song, “Rain, rain, go away, come again another day!”Well, another day is here and now I am praying for rain. Not for myself, but for the thousands of farmers around the globe who need it to sustain their crops and for a productive harvest. I received a report from the North Korea-Ryongyon program today and they, too, are suffering from drought. Last year’s drought and then untimely heavy rains left farmers with no cottonseed to carry through to the next year. This year things sound equally dry and with no irrigation and no ability to import food from outside, they also need the rain to sustain their crops. Irrigation pumps and greenhouses are helping. Our program partner writes, “Despite of all the odds our farms were doing reasonably well under the circumstances compared to other farms.”

Another day is here, rain please don’t stay away. Our partner in North Korea writes, “Over all I pray to overcome this year’s extreme heat and dry spell to escape from another disaster.  Would you please join me to pray for the better harvests?”
