DANGEROUS FLOODING THREATENS THE NEW MILLING PROJECT BUILDING IN KIEREKA KASOKOSO UGANDA
WE GIVE THE LORD ALL THE GLORY! We wanted to give our testimony and be witnesses of the mercy of our Lord in what you are about to read. His love endures forever! We are grateful.
Many Nations of East Africa entered into their typical ‘rainy season’ in late February 2018. Many prayers had gone up to the Lord for several months due to the 2017 droughts that devastated many portions of every East African nation. The harshness of the drought claimed many human and livestock lives as well as the crops and increased hunger to another 21st Century high in the region.
This year has proven to be any thing other than closed heavens as the rain has continued to fall at higher than normal volumes. Many nations and their citizens were caught off-guard as most nations worldwide are when suddenly the rivers and lakes and ditches and drains are filled to over-capacity. Many lives have been lost and many more are endangered. The suffering also includes that of the livestock and homes and farmer’s fields and newly planted crops caught in the high-rising waters washing away the works of their hands. Let us pray against LOSS!
We felt the same sense of loss when our Construction Engineer, Toto Sande went to check on the Milling Project’s foundation knowing that far beyond normal rainfall had saturated the community of Kiereka Kasokoso. Surely, he found the foundation was indeed on the verge of being compromised. WE PRAISE GOD! WHO enabled us to pull together a team and necessary materials to reinforce the building’s foundation. The Miracle, though, is the Lord truly stopped the rain from falling the 3 days that were necessary to do the work!
NWSC (National Water and Sewerage Corporation) came May 2, 2018 and buried the necessary pipes for the building’s hook up to the city’s system. We are getting closer to our opening day of operations–Lord willing the corn will come in by the truck loads at harvest and many will benefit from the grace our Lord has given us for this Milling Project.
