Well, it's pretty shocking, but many people here in Niger have had to evacuate their homes because of flooding! In a village across the river from ours, many have lost their homes and have been sleeping in a school here in Boubon. Many in Boubon have also lost their homes. Our friends who live 'out on the farm' have lost most of their crops because of flooding. They've turned off the electricity in Boubon because a power line is in danger of falling due to erosion.
Our supervisors have written a blog post (www.seekingthesonghai.blogspot.com) explaining more about this situation as well as posted pictures and given prayer requests. Please keep the Songhai people in your prayers!
