Starting Tuesday (28 February), we heard that there are suspicious outbreaks at Samaritan’s Purse, which might be cholera. This news has folks worried.

On one hand, people in Lui were praying for the rains to start. If the rains start, they can begin planting crops.

But there’s a downside too. When the rains begin and the rivers begin to flow, that also means that cholera begins to spread.

It feels like nothing in Lui is an unmitigated “good news” announcement. It seems like everything – like this “good” news of the rains – is accompanied by “bad news” or at least a caution.
