Here in Niger it is the magic word! We had a beautiful, steady rainstorm on Saturday night; the first we have had this year. There is nothing more soothing than listening to rain on a metal roof, especially as the rain is always accompanied by a significant drop in temperature. I was watching a movie and had to pause it because the rain was so loud! Can't complain about that interuption! Ian was out in a village with a group from church showing the Jesus film. The rain passed through the village before they arrived and though they saw the lightening from afar, all was clear for their evening showing. The rain finally came down in buckets as he was dropping the last few people off at their homes here in Niamey. God had that timed just right! I don't have any pictures or any fancy stories about the rain for this post, I just wanted to share our joy at its arrival! Pray that it will come consistently allowing crops to grow and flourish this year in West Africa.
