Miracle Water!

The amazing story of a young woman’s prayers that led to miraculous water in a Kenyan village. Read Transcript


MY NAME IS EMILY GLUTU.

I LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES,

BUT MY STORY IN

I GREW UP IN A SMALL VILLAGE

IN KENYA.

WHEN I WAS YOUNG, I GOT UP

EARLY AND FETCHED WATER FROM

A NEARBYSTREAM.

AS I GOT OLDER, I REALIZED

MANY PEOPLE DID NOT HAVE

EASY ACCESS TO WATER.

THIS IS A DRY PLACE.

WATER WAS ABANDONED HERE,

BUT THE RIVERS HAVE RUN

DRY.

AND SOMETIMES THE EARTH IS

ALL THAT FLOWS IN THIS

PLACE.

IN THE BLOWING DUST, IT

LEAVES DEATH IN ITS PATH.

I STAYED FOR A SHORT TIME IN

MORENGA, AND FETCHED WATER

WITH THE OTHER WOMEN.

THE WATER WAS A LONG WAY

OFF, AROUND A DISTANT

MOUNTAIN.

EVERY DAY THE WOMEN OF

MORENGA MADE THIS JOURNEY.

AFTER WE MARRIED, GABRIEL

AND I MOVED TOL UNITED

STATES.

GABRIEL STUDIED AND BECAME A

PASTOR.

LIFE IS EASY IN THE UNITED

STATES.

BUT I HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN

ABOUT THE WOMEN OF HIS

VILLAGE.

WOMEN LIKE ELIZABETH AND

CRISTINA.

Reporter: I WAKE

I WAKE UP 7:00 AND THE

MORNING AND I DON'T GET BACK

HOME UNTIL 11:00.5JÑ HAD A DONKEY, BUT IT

DIED.

NOW I MUST CARRY WATER

MYSELF.

SOMETIMES I HAVE TO GO TWICE

TO GET WATER, AND ON THOSE

DAYS I AM SO TIRED, I CAN DO

NOTHING ELSE.

I'M A TEACHER, BUT I ALSO

HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF MY

HOUSE AND MY FAMILY.

I CAN ONLY TEACH IN THE

MORNING BECAUSE EVERY

AFTERNOON I GO TO THE BASIN

TO GET WATER, AND IT'S

DIRTY.

MANY CHILDREN GET SICK AND

MISS SCHOOL BECAUSE OF

STOMACH INFECTIONS.

WITHOUT WATER, EVEN THE

ANIMALS GET SICK.

IN THE UNITED STATES, I

WORK ON THE CAMPUS OF CBN.

AND I REMEMBER MORENGA.

I JUST STARTED THINKING OF

IF I WAS STILL LIVING THERE

WITH MY KIDS.

AND THEM GETTING SICK.

MY HUSBAND AND I STARTED TO

PRAY AND ASK GOD, HOW CAN WE

BE OF HELP TO OUR VILLAGES?

AND I KNEW IF THEY WOULD GET

CLEAN WATER, PPá WOULD HELP

THEM GIVE THEIR LIVES TO

JESUS.

MY HEART WAS TROUBLED, SO I

FASTED AND PRAYED THAT THE

LORD WOULD SHOW ME THE WAY

TO HELP MY PEOPLE.

AND THEN THE HAND OF GOD

MOVED.

WE WERE SITTING THERE,

HAVING BREAKFAST, AND THIS

PRECIOUS WOMAN CAME, AND WE

STARTED TALKING.

AND THEY WANTED TO KNOW

WHERE I'M FROM.

AND I SAID I'M FROM KENYA.

AND SHE WANTED TO KNOW

WHAT WE WERE DOING THERE,

AND I SAID WE WERE A

MINISTRY THAT BROUGHT WELLS

TO VILLAGES WITHOUT CLEAN

DRINKING WATER.

AND SHE SAID, I'VE BEEN

FASTING AND PRAYING FOR A

WELL FOR MY VILLAGE IN

KENYA.

I SAID, REALLY?

WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE IF WE

CAN DO SOMETHING TO HELP

YOU.

THIS WOMAN I MET, JANET

BAKER, WAS THE HEAD OF A

CHARITY THAT RAISES MONEY SO

CBN CAN DIG WELLS AROUND THE

WORLD.

BUT IN MORENGA, IT IS SO

DRY.

WELLS MIGHT BE HUNDREDS OF

FEET DEEP.

IT SEEMS IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO

DIG A WELL THERE.

AND AS HARD AS IT LOOKED, I

NEEDED A GOD THAT NOTHING IS

HARD FOR HIM.

IN TIME, THE MONEY WASA2"TIU(RáQ" AND THE DEEP WELL WAS

DUG.

GABRIEL GOES BACK TO KENYA

EVERY YEAR TO VISIT A CHURCH

HE STARTED IN MORENGA.

HE WAS THERE WHEN THE WATER

FLOWED FOR THE FIRST TIME.

GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU THE

LIVING WATER OF EAT TERNAL

LIFE.

THE WELL WAS DEDICATED TO

GOD.

HE TOLD ME STORIES OF THE

CELEBRATION AND THE

REJOICING.

I GOT WATER THREE TIMES

THAT DAY.

WE ARE LAUGHING AND PUSHING

TO SEE WHO WILL BE THE FIRST

TO GET WATER.

I LIKE THE STORY, BUT TO

ME THE PEOPLE SEEMED SO

DISTANT.

NOW, AFTER 12 YEARS IN THE

U.S., I'M RETURNING TO

MORENGA TO SEE THIS MIRACLE

THAT THE LORD HAS DONE.

I DID NOT KNOW WHAT T]

EXPECT WHEN WE ARRIVED IN

THE VILLAGE.

WOULD ANYONE REMEMBER ME?

DID THEY CARE THAT I HAD

COME HOME?

WOULD ANYONE COME TO WELCOME

ME?

I PRAY THAT GOD WILL

BLESS HER, THAT HE WILL JUST

LET HER GET SO EXCITED IN

KNOWING THAT HER

FAITHFULNESS BROUGHT IT ALL

ABOUT.

*

IWAS SO SURPRISED.

I DID NOT KNOW WHETHER TO

DANCE OR CRY.

LIKE, I WISH ALL OF THESE

PEOPLE THAT ARE HERE TO

TODAY, AS MUCH AS THEY'RE

HAPPY ABOUT THIS WATER,

THEY'RE THINKING ABOUT JESUS

TO BE THEIR PERSONAL

SAVIOR.

WHAT A BLESSING.

WATER HAS COME TO A DRY

PLACE.

WE HAVE SEEN A MIRACLE OF

GOD.

I HAVE SO MUCH MORE TIME

NOW.

I MAKE THINGS TO SELL IN THE

MARKETPLACE, AND I HAVE TIME

TO WORK IN THE FIELDS.

OUR ANIMALS ARE HEALTHY

BECAUSE THEY HAVE WATER TO

DRINK.

AND WE CAN ALL GIVE WATER TO

OUR CHILDREN WITHOUT

WORRYING THAT THEY WILL GET

SICK.

GOD IN HEAVEN SENT HER AND

HE GAVEUS THIS WATER

BECAUSE OF HER PRAYERS.

I SPEND A LOT OF TIME

WATERING THE GARDEN NEXT TO

MY HUSBAND'S CHURCH, AND I

TALK TO THE WOMEN OF THE

VILLAGE WHENEVER I CAN.

BUT SOMETIMES I CANNOT HELP

BUT CRY.

IT TAKES A LOT OF TIME TO

MAKE CORNBREAD FOR MY

FAMILY.

JUST SEPARATING THE CORN IS

HARD, BUT I'M HAPPY TO DO

IT.

AND BECAUSE OF THE WATER

WELL, I HAVE THE TIME.

I USED TO THINK ABOUT

WATER, EVEN WHILE I WAS

TEACHING.

AND NOW I CAN FOCUS ON

EDUCATING THE CHILDREN.

I HAVE A LOT MORE ENERGY.

AND I CAN TEACH ALL DAY.

THE CHILDREN ARE HEALTHY AND

DO NOT@%%MM SCHOOL.

TRULY THIS IS A GIFT FROM

GOD.

TODAY THE WOMEN OF

MORENGA ARE WORKING,

DIGGING, PLANTING, AND

WATERING, KNOWING THAT SEEDS

WILL BEAR GOOD FRUITS.

THERE IS A LOT OF LAND

AROUND THE CHURCH.

WE DREAM THAT IN THE FUTURE

THERE WILL BE A CLINIC-HERE.

AND FOR US, A CHRISTIAN HAS

COME TO TEACH THE YOUNG

PEOPLE ABOUT THE WORD OF

GOD.

WHEN I RETURNED HOME TO

THE UNITED STATES, PART OF

MY HEART WILL REMAIN IN

KENYA.

THESEARE MY PEOPLE.

THIS IS MY FAMILY, AND I

LOVE THEM.

I WILL CONTINUE TO PRAY

FOR ELIZABETH, CRISTINA, AND

THE OTHERS.

AND FOR US, GOD WILL WO)

EVEN GREATER MIRACLES HERE.
