Then, one night, during a meet with the villagers, Rodney said, “Friends, we all have heard tales from our grandparents about an underground river flowing through our village. Why don’t we dig and see?” The villagers agreed and started digging. They dug for some days but gave up soon. However, Rodney kept on digging. When people told him to give up, he said, “God is helping and guiding my way.”
