Rain Relief Arrives

On March 11 our 1,000 gallon rain water storage tank sprung a leak spilling all of our drinking and showering water on the ground. For the next four days we only had the water we already had carried into our house (about 20 gallons). No rain fell for four days. We were pretty stressed as he had a house guest scheduled to arrive March 15 and another arriving March 18, both depending on us for water.

Then on Wednesday morning (March 15) we received a rainstorm which dumped 1.1″ in an hour. Praise God! We now have over 250 gallons of rain water in our recently repaired storage tank. This is sufficient drinking and showering water for us and our guests for a few weeks.

Thank you for your prayers. Praise God for answering them.
