Not so long after the dream ( Please read my previous post to get the background of today`s post), I was in the wash room wen I realized that there was water leakage. This wouldn’t be a serious problem in many of the houses in Africa, but the material used to construct houses in North America generally doesn’t go well with water leakage. Profound destruction of the house can occur within only I hour of serious water leakage. I tried to stop it but failed; it was around midnight when all this happened. I tried to locate the main tap to the house in order to close it but this also failed. The leakage was rapidly filling whatever container it was dripping into meaning that I would have to be awake the whole night, emptying and putting back the containers.
I called my neighbour who quickly came and headed to the basement to close the main tap but he failed. The leaking continued. It was now approximately 1 am. Another neighbour joined us and the first one to come left- he had been at my place so long trying to stop the leakage but had failed. The second neighbour failed too and suggested we call the water department`s emergency number. Their duty was to locate and close the main valve on the street from which my house receives the water. The man was very good to us and did his level best to locate the valve but failed, it was close to 2am. Meanwhile everyone was very sleepy, I had gotten tired from running in and out of the house and it appeared like the neighbour and water service man were also frustrated by the lack of a solution to the problem. I was wondering why all this happened at night and why the solution wasn’t forth coming. Space and time do not allow me to write all the details of what we went through but the whole process was very distressing.
The service man promised to come back later in the morning with colleagues and special gadgets, the neighbour would help me find a commercial plumber man and I had to deal with the water leakage till some time during the day when help comes. By the way I also had to get ready with finances- plumbing services are not cheap. Together with the neighbour we stepped back to my bathroom one more time and we were able to temporarily reduce the water leakage so that it would allow just one container till morning. It was not easy , but with God`s help we managed. God brought an idea to my mind which I presented to the neighbour and he was happy to try it out with me. We parted company with my neighbour at about 2:30am and I went to sleep .
But this was just the beginning of God providing a way, later during the day more amazing things happened as I will write in the next post. Please don’t miss my next post as I share more on the amazing love of God and of our Lord Jesus Christ.
