John and Doves,
The whole world is suffering from drought and withering crops.
There was also a global drought in the first century. Acts 11:28
We need rain. During the Great Tribulation, the 2 witnesses will have power over the rainfall-- Rev. 11: 6
"The worst droughts in decades are wilting wheat fields from China to the U.S. to the U.K., overwhelming Russia’s return to grain markets and driving prices to the highest levels since 2008.
Parts of China, the biggest grower, had the least rain in a century, some European regions are the driest in 50 years and almost half the winter-wheat crop in the U.S., the largest exporter, is rated poor or worse.
Inventory is dropping 8.8 percent, the most in five years, Rabobank International says. Prices will advance 20 percent to as high as $9.25 a bushel by Dec. 31, a Bloomberg survey of 14 analysts and traders shows.
Wheat ( prices have ) as much as doubled in the past year as crops failed "
Rev. 6:6 " A day's wages for a loaf of bread".
