Team work!!!

Sometimes there are jobs to do, which are just too heavy or too complicated. It is good to be part of a team and to ask for help... This is what we did this morning. A couple of weeks ago we cut some trees in our compound, the reason of that was that the roots were going towards the building or the tree was not safe in case there was a storm.
One of the tree trunks was still laying in the compound, the rest was already removed, this one was too heavy.... so today we decided to move it more out of the way (yesterday I had hit it with the car☹)
We asked the staff to help and tried to push it together....
 They tried, but it was too heavy (left to right: Sharon2, Christine, Simon, Emma, Elias, Janet, David)
 We had started building the wall in the back of the compound and we asked the men who are working at the wall to come and help us..........
 And together the job was done!!!!
We have a drought in Teso land, no rain and everything is dry and dusty. It is a big problem, we had a bit of rain some time ago and people put their seeds in the ground, trusting that more rain would come. But no rain came, so the seeds will die if not soon the rain will come.
In Amecet we also have problems with the water. We have water through the pipes, from Soroti town, but most of the time there is no tap water. Than we have big tanks, we use to catch the rain water, but no rain has been there, so our problem began: a  house with 22 children, many still in diapers, so there is a lot of laundry, bathing etc. and we have men building a wall, which also needs water to make the cement..... Simon contacted the police and they came with their fire truck, to fill all our outside tanks.... We are very grateful...
In the evening, a rain storm raged over Soroti....... Thank God, for the rain and for more to come....
