Here are some pictures of the houses the village people live in:
Most of the homes are either mud huts, or made of sticks. Life is very simple. And it's also very hot. In February and March, average temperatures are around 100 F. No electricity means no fans, no air conditioning, and nothing cold to drink. Each afternoon, when it is the hottest, the village is very quiet. If you are still and don't move much, you don't get as hot. At 4pm is when people begin to leave their houses to get water, and when children come onto the base property to play or hang out.
Either tonight or tomorrow Mozambique will be hit by a tropical storm. We are praying that the winds will do no damage and that the rain will not flood out the houses. As you can see, houses are not built to withstand heavy storms. Please pray with us for the people here in the Gaza province as the storms come.
