Finally really raining!

The dust is turning to mud!! I can't believe I'm this excited about the rainy season but this seems to have been a very long dry season and an exceptionally hot one. I'm tired of chapped lips, cracking feet and dust every where every time I'm in Karamoja. Dust in my hair, dust on every surface of the house, dust in my sheets, dust in my drinking water.
But I'm even more excited about this for my friends in the peace villages. I've seen how badly their gardens did in the first rainy season, in which they could count the number of times it rained on one hand. We are praying for some long steady rain to water their crops so that they can have a good harvest to carry them though the next dry season!
