"This year we have planted a lot of crops in our farm, but due to the decrease in amount of the rainfall we may not harvest a lot as we expected." (Juyl 2016)

"I would like to inform you that the weather down here is so hot with a lot of dust. Animals and even people are dying (starving) due to drought. We are praying God of mercy to do some miracle so that rains come within a short time." (April 2017)
