How Far Would You Go for Clean Water?

The only water source for Ramili’s village was not only miles away but often polluted by a nearby cesspool. A pastor encouraged Ramili, a Hindu, to ask God to provide safe drinking water close to her home. What happened next? Read Transcript


Reporter: IN THE

PORPORA VILLAGE IN INDIA,

EVERY DROP OF WATER WAS

PRECIOUS.

SHE AND HER FAMILY MADE SURE

THEY DIDN'T WASTE ANY OF

IT.

IT TOOK A LOT OF TIME FOR

US TO SCOOP THE WATER OUT OF

THE GROUND.

SO WE RECYCLE IT WHENEVER

POSSIBLE.

WE TOOK BATHS ON A CORD, AND

COLLECTED THE WATER

UNDERNEATH THAT.

AND WE USED THAT WATER TO

WASH OUR UTENSILS AND

CLOTHES.

Reporter: THE NEAREST

WATER SOURCE WAS TWO MILES

AWAY.

SO THEY CAME UP WITH A WAY

TO TRANSPORT LARGE AMOUNTS

OF WATER.

MY CHILDREN USED A

HOMEMADE WAGON TO PULL THE

WATER.

IT IS DIFFICULT TO DO

BECAUSE HALF THE WAY IS ON

DIRT ROADS.

Reporter: BUT THEY

FACED AN EVEN BIGGER

PROBLEM: THE WATER WASN'T

CLEAN.

THE WATER SOURCE IS RIGHT

NEXT TO A CESS POOL.

AND SOME CHILDREN DIED AFTER

DRINKING THE WATER.

Reporter: THEY SHARED

THEIR PROBLEMS WITH A LOCAL

PASTOR WHO VISITED THEIR

HOME.

HE TOLD US ABOUT JESUS,

AND PRAYED FOR MY SON WHEN

HE WAS SICK.

HE ALSO ENCOURAGED US TO

HAVE CLEAN DRINKING WATER

CLOSE TO OUR HOME.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

SHE AND HER FAMILY WERE

HINDU, THEY PRAYED TO JESUS

FOR HELP.

IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE

DRILLING EQUIPMENT ARRIVED

IN THEIR VILLAGE.

AS AN ANSWER TO OUR

PRAYERS, CBN CAME TO OUR

VILLAGE AND BUILT US A WELL

WITH A HAND PUMP.

AFTER SEEING HOW MUCH GOD

LOVES US, WE ACCEPTED JESUS

AS OUR SAVIOR AND GOT

BAPTIZED.

WE GIVE THANKS TO EVERYONE

WHO MADE THIS MIRACLE

POSSIBLE.
