Droughts in Kenya and Guatemala


The worst droughts in decades have hit both Kenya in Africa and Guatemala in Central America:

Kenya drought taking its toll
BBC – Sept 20, 2009

One of the worst droughts in living memory is taking its toll on both people and wildlife in Kenya.

Clashes over land and water lead to the deaths of 32 people last week, with community leaders warning there will be more violence. Meanwhile, in Samburu district at least 24 elephants have either starved or been shot by poachers looking for food.


Guatemalan drought causing hunger

UNITED NATIONS, Sept. 19 (UPI) — Guatemala’s worst drought in 30 years is affecting an estimated 2.5 million people, especially children

and pregnant women, the United Nations said.

Drought conditions have been exacerbated by pest infestations, which have reduced the food supply, especially in the so-called dry corridor along the Pacific Ocean, U.N. officials said in a release Friday.

An estimated 30 percent of all pregnant women in the corridor are malnourished and 25 children have died in recent weeks, Guatemala’s Ministry of Health said.  http://www.upi.com/Top_News/2009/09/19/Guatemalan-drought-causing-hunger/UPI-20891253382320/

There are also droughts in other areas (including California where this page is based).  Droughts lead to food shortages, chaos, and often death.

Famines are one of the things that Jesus prophesied would occur during the beginning of sorrows. The situations in Kenya and Guatemala are bad, but worse droughts also seem to be prophesied that will likely include the Israelite-descended nations (Deuteronomy 11:16-17), as well as elsewhere (Revelation 11:6).
