A South African farmer shares the miracles he has seen in Africa including a Zulu woman who was raised from the dead. Read Transcript


Pat: SOME MOVIES ARE

LETDOWN, SOME ARE INSPIRING,

AND ONE CALLED "FAITH LIKE

POTATOES," IS A MOVE ABOUT A

SOUTH AFRICAN FARMER NAMED

ANGUS BUCKIN.

AND THE TITLE MEANS THAT

FAITH HAS TO HAVE FLESH.

AND HE HAS BOTH.

JUST WATCH.

Reporter: ANGUS BUCKIN

WAS A SUCCESSFUL FARMER IN

SOUTH AFRICA, BUT HE LIVED

WITH NO PURPOSE IN LIFE.

IN 1979, THE GREATEST DAY

OF MY LIFE, ME, MY WIFE, AND

MY CHILDREN WENT TO A LITTLE

METHODIST CHURCH, AND AT THE

END, I'LL NEVER FORGET IT,

MY CHILDREN WENT TO THE

FRONT.

IT CHANGED MY LIFE.

Reporter: ANGUS BEGAN

TELLING OTHERS ABOUT JESUS,

RIGHT IN HIS OWN BACKYARD.

AND HE WATCHED AS GOD WORKED

MIRACLES.

OVER THE YEARS, THE CROWDS

GREW BIGGER AND BIGGER.

LOOK DOWN, AND RIGHT IN

THE FRONT THERE WAS A MAN

SITTING THERE, AND HE HAD

TWO CRUTCHES.

AND I HEARD GOD SAY GO

BEHIND HIM AND PRAY FOR THAT

MAN.

AND THAT MIRACLE TURNED THE

PEOPLE.

HE WAS RUNNING UP AND DOWN

JUMPING FOR JOY.

Reporter: WHETHER IT IS

PREACHING FOR THOUSANDS AT

HEALING CRUSADES, OR GIVING

A HOME TO ORPHANS, ANGUS HAS

SEEN GOD CHANGE HUNDREDS OF

LIVES.

Pat: PLEASE WELCOME TO

"THE 700 CLUB," AN

EXTRAORDINAIRE MAN, ANGUS

BUCKIN.

IT'S GREAT TO BE HERE.

Pat: YOU WERE IN

ZAMBIA, AND THEN YOU WENT

INTO THE ZULOO COUNTRY.

THAT'S RIGHT.

AND I PREACH IN MY SECOND

LANGUAGE.

THE ZOOLOOERS ARE A PROUD

PEOPLE.

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL LANGUAGE,

PAT.

IT IS SUCH AN HONOR TO WORK

WITH THE LAND.

I'M PREACHING AND MY SONS

ARE WORKING THE FARMS.

Pat: WHEN WE THERE IN

ZULOO COUNTRY.

WE DID A PROGRAM THERE.

OKAY.

ONE THING ABOUT THEM,

THEY'RE PASSIONATE PEOPLE.

SO WHEN WE COME THROUGH FOR

CHRIST, THEY'RE PASSIONATE.

Pat: YOU HAVE A NUMBER

OF THE ZULOO WOMEN WORKING

ON YOUR FARM.

AND THEY CAME TO YOU ONE

NIGHT CRYING AND SOBBING.

THERE WAS A THUNDERSTORM,

AND THEY WERE STRUCK BY

LIGHTNING, AND ALL OF THE

WOMEN WERE KNOCKED TO THE

GROUND AND ONE DIDN'T GET

UP.

I'M TELLING YOU THE TRUE

STORY.

THEY CAME TO THE HOUSE, THEY

WERE CRYING, AND I HAD BEEN

PREACHING THEM ABOUT THE

POWER OF GOD.

I SAID GET AWAY FROM

WITCHCRAFT.

GET TO JESUS.

WHEN I HEARD THIS WOMAN WAS

DOWN, THEY SAID TO ME SHE

WAS DEAD.

SO I WENT UP THERE IN MY

PIC PICKUP, MY TRUCK.

I SAID GO IN AND BRING THE

BODY UP.

AND THEY SAID, YOU KEEP

TELLING US THIS JESUS HAS

HEALING POWER.

YOU BETTER COME IN AND A

PRAY.

I'LL NEVER FORGET IT, I

WALKED IN THERE, AND IT WAS

SMOKY, AND IT IS LIKE ALMOST

SCREAMING.

THIS WOMAN WAS LYING ON THE

ONE SIDE WITH A BLANKET OVER

HER.

I WENT OVER HER AND PRAYED

OVER HER.

I SAID, JESUS, PLEASE, IT IS

YOUR REPUTATION.

AND NOTHING HAPPENED, PAT.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

I FELT THE HOLY SPIRIT

SAYING TAKE HER BY THE WRIST

AND PICK HER UP.

AND SO I PICKED HER UP.

AND THEN I FELT THE LORD SAY

TO ME, LET HER GO.

AND SHE STOOD WITH HER HANDS

RAISED UP, AND THE PLACE

WENT BALLISTIC.

FOR WEEKS LATER, THEY WERE

WORKING THE FIELDS AND

SINGING HYMNS.

Pat: BUT SHE WAS

STONE-COLD DEAD.

I'M GOING TO TELL YOU THE

TRUTH.

THEY HAD A BLANKET OVER THE

BODY.

THEY TOLD ME SHE WAS DEAD.

I LAID MY HANDS ON HER AND I

PRAYED FOR HER.

AND NOTHING HAPPENED.

AND THEN THE HOLY SPIRIT

SAID TAKE A HOLD OF HER AND

STAND HER UP.

THE STORY, FAITH LIKE

POTATOES.

REMEMBER THE SCOTTISH

PREACHER WHO SAID YOU HAVE

TO HAVE FAITH THAT IS

POSITIVE.

ONE GENUINE MIRACLE EQUALS A

THOUSAND SERMONS.

AND THAT WAS IT.

Pat: AND YOU'VE GONE

PREACHING ALL OVER AFRICA.

THERE ARE TENS OF THOUSANDS

THAT HAVE COME TO THE LORD.

THE BIGGEST THING IS THE

MEN.

THIS IS MY FIRST VISIT TO

THE U.S.

I'VE GOT A HEART FOR YOU

GUYS.

LOOK AT THOSE MEN.

Pat: HOW MANY

PEOPLE --

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS.

Pat: HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS.

THAT'S A FARM THERE.

JUST -- PAT, YOU KNOW WHAT I

FEEL ABOUT -- LOOK AT THAT.

Pat: I SEE THEM.

IT IS INCREDIBLE.

IT IS GREAT.

AND, PAT, THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE, YOUR PEOPLE -- IF

THERE IS ANY PROBLEM IN THE

WORLD, AND IF ANYTHING GOES

WRONG, YOU GET THE BLAME FOR

IT.

I'M GOING TO NASHVILLE

TOMORROW -- TODAY, AND I'M

PREACHING TO 3,000 MEN ON

FRIDAY NIGHT.

MY FIRST ONE.

I'M TELLING YOU, I CAN'T

WAIT TO GET THERE.

I CAN SEE YOUR A MAN'S MAN.

YOU RIDE HORSES, AND I RIDE

HORSES --

Pat: I'VE WORKED ON A

FARM.

I'VE DONE ALL OF THE THINGS

YOU'VE DONE.

AND LOVE YOUR WIVES.

LOVE YOUR WIFE; DISCIPLINE

YOUR CHILDREN.

THAT'S ALL WE'RE PREACHING,

AND IT'S WORKING.

Pat: YOU BUILT A HOUSE

AND CAME DOWN INTO THAT

AREA -- YOU HAD NOTHING.

HOW IN THE WORLD DID YOU DO

IT?

YOU WORKED 18 HOURS A DAY

EVERY DAY --

ALL OF THE CREDIT TO MY

WIFE, MY BEST FRIEND.

SHE WAS SIX MONTHS

PREGNANT.

WE HAD NO CELL PHONES, NO

WATER, NO COMMUNICATION.

WE BUILT IT IN THREE WEEKS.

THE ZULOO PEOPLE SAID THESE

GUYS WILL BE GONE IN SIX

MONTHS.

THEY'RE LIVING WORSE THAN

US.

35 YEARS HAVE GONE BY, AND

WE'RE STILL THERE.

Pat: YOU'RE WIFE IS SO

LOVING, BUT SHE IS SO

SLIGHT, AND SHE ENDURED --

SHE IS AN AMAZING WOMAN.

I SPOKE TO HER EARLY THIS

MORNING.

I TELL THE CROWD, SOMETIMES

I HAVE TO SELL AN OX WHEN I

GET HOME, A COW, TO PAY FOR

THE PHONE CALLS.

I SAID I'VE GOT NO MORE COWS

LEFT, BUT I'VE STILL GOT MY

WIFE.

Pat: YOU BUILT -- IT

WAS JUST MUD, AND THE ZULOO

WOMEN HELPED YOU MAKE THE

MUD BRICKS.

AND WE PLASTERED WITH

CEMENT.

I'M STILL IN THE SAME

HOUSE.

WHY DO I NEED TO BUY ANOTHER

HOUSE?

MY FATHER IS BUILDING A

MANSION FOR ME IN HEAVEN.

I'VE GOT 27 ADOPTED

CHILDREN.

I'VE GOT 154 SPIRITUAL SONS

ALL OVER THE WORLD.

I'M IN THE FAMILY BUSINESS,

LIKE YOU, SIR.

Pat: YOU CALL IT

SHALOM?

SHALOM IS THE NAME OF THE

FARM.

AND WE CALL IT SHALOM

MINISTE MINISTRIES.

THEY SAID THEY NEED A NAME,

AND MY WIFE SAID SHALOM,

PEACE.

I'M GOING TO ISRAEL IN NINE

DAYS' TIME AND I'M SPEAKING

AT THE TA TABERNACLE.

Pat: THAT'S A GREAT

PLACE.

WHAT IS GOD TELLING YOU

ABOUT THIS TIME WE LIVE IN,

AND WHAT'S COMING.

WHAT GOD'S TELLING ME --

THAT'S WHY I'M IN THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA.

GOD IS TELLING ME,

GENTLEMEN, IT IS TIME TO PUT

YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE BACK OF

MY BIBLE, RIGHT AT THE

BACK.

I HAVE WRITTEN A THING IN

THE BOOK OF REVELATION.

"KEEP SHORT OF COUNTS WITH

MAN AND SHORT OF COUNTS WITH

GOD."

JESUS IS NOT COMING SOON,

PAT.

I'M TELL YOU, HE IS ON HIS

WAY.

HE WILL COME LIKE?

I'M BLOWN AWAY BY THE

HOSPITALITY AND THE LOVE OF

YOUR PEOPLE.

IT'S SO GENEROUS.

Pat: YOU'RE A GREAT

MAN.

YOU'RE CHILDREN, DID THEY

GROW UP LOVING THE LORD?

YES.

ALL FIVE OF THEM LOVE

JESUS.

MY OLDEST BOY ORGANIZED

THOSE EVENTS YOU JUST SAW ON

THE TELEVISION.

IT IS HUGE.

WE HAD TO PUT AN EIGHT-

EIGHT-INCH PIPE TO GET

SHOWERS FOR THE MAN.

THIS WASN'T A ONE-DAY

EVENT.

THE TOILETS, FOR EXAMPLE,

THE SHOWERS -- I MEAN, THE

FOOD.

IT WAS AWESOME.

Pat: YOU DID ALL OF

THAT?

THEY DID IT ALL OVER.

I JUST CAME FROM YORKSHIRE,

ENGLAND, 3,000 PEOPLE.

I'M GOING TO NASHVILLE

TODAY, 3,000 MEN ON FRIDAY

NIGHT.

Pat: LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, THIS BOOK IS

CALLED "FAITH LIKE

POTATOES."

READ -- I MEAN, IF ANY OF

YOU HAVE EVER BEEN IN

FARMING, THIS GUY, IT'S

TOUGH WHAT HE DID.

MAN, I WORKED LIKE CRAZY

WHEN I WAS A KID.

I GOT PAID $15 A MONTH.

YOU'D GET UP AT 5:30, 6:00

IN THE MORNING, WHATEVER,

SLOP THE HOGS, CHOP THE

WOOD, DO ALL OF THIS STUFF,

GO OUT IN THE FIELD --

YOU'VE DONE THAT.

PAT, YOU KNOW WHAT I'M

HOPING TO DO NOW?

THIS IS MY DESIRE --

Pat: WHAT'S THAT.

ON TUESDAY, MAYBE YOU CAN

PRAY FOR ME.

IT LOOKS LIKE THERE IS A

GOOD OPPORTUNITY THAT I'M

GOING TO MEET ONE OF YOUR

DEAR FRIENDS, DR. BILLY

GRAHAM.

IT WILL BE ONE OF THE

HIGHLIGHTS OF MY LIFE.

TO ME, HE IS NUMBER ONE.

THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE I CAN

MEET THE GENTLEMAN.

Pat: HE CAN'T HEAR.

BUT HE IS ONE OF MY HEROS

AND ONE OF MY GOOD FRIENDS.

LET'S PRAY FOR HIM AND YOU.

THANK YOU, ANGUS, FOR THE

LOVE YOU HAVE, AND THE LOVE

FOR HIM.

WE PRAY HE MIGHT SEE -- PUT

HIM IN FRONT OF THOSE WHO

WILL BE BLESSED BY HIS

PRESENCE.

IN JESUS' NAME, AMEN.

AMEN.

THANK YOU.

Pat: GOD BLESS YOU.

FANTASTIC WHAT GOD HAS DONE

WITH A SIMPLE FARMER WHO IS

PREACHING FAITH LIKE

POTATOES.

YOU CAN GET THIS BOOK WHERE

BOOKS ARE SOLD.
