Many have written with sorrow over the water/electricity crisis in Dodoma.  (This is not Dodoma, but North Carolina).  Thank you for your faithfulness and your prayers.This I know, the Africans accept hardship as a way to be closer to Jesus and his suffering ~ suffering is a way of life for them.  

“The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.  Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter’s oven?  And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed by knives?  When you are joyous, look deep into  your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.”  The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran.
