How hot is it in NIger?

This is the outside temperature in Celsius...this means it is 120 Fahrenheit in the afternoon! This is at our wonder I am so hot and thirsty all the time!  
The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst.
But I the LORD will answer them; I the God of Israel, will not forsake them. Isaiah 41:17

This is a picture from my friend Christine Lehman. I thought it would show the extreme sights and suffocating activities of the  people here in Niger. I don't know how people survive!
Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become to them a spring of water welling up to eternal life. John  4: 13-14

This is my prayer today that the love of Jesus Christ would be evident here in all our daily care routines for our patients. As we provide for our patients and their caregivers for their physical thirst, may we have the opportunity to share the living water of Jesus Christ!
