I posted this on June 19th:

I could see parched land all around me on my travel to Reserve, New Mexico this past Sunday to preach on Father’s Day at FBC. I saw elk with the cattle, they needed water and feed. I saw one elk outside of Magdalena dead by the road. The rains helped bring down the Buzzard Fire in Catron County, we PRAISE GOD!

The rains here in Albuquerque were so refreshing! It perked things up! But we need a lot more to catch up! We, the Body of Christ, need to seek the Lord daily and ask for rain.

Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit. James 5:18
