THE HARVEST PLUS
We want to emphasize that the drought in Kenya remains horrifically intense. Here in Kadawa the lack of rain hasn't been as bad as in other parts. The planting is done according to the "long" rains and the "short" rains. This is the time for the short rains, but they are lasting longer than usual, whereas the long rains were shorter than usual. This has cause a lot of confusion about when to plant. Many of the crops have been very poor, including the small crops on the villagers' land. This is due to the unusual rain- patterns and drought in between. The strange weather patterns are being attributed to El Nino.
However, as you have seen in our previous photos, our land and the church land has prospered. The Lord has truly blessed our fields and that, along with good managing techniques that He has taught us - proper fertilizer, weeding, and managing the water when the rain does come, has resulted in a crop that far surpasses the first one we did. God has truly taken care of his widows and orphans with this particular crop.
