Mysterious Search for Water

I need your help to solve a mystery. This email is being sent a little late because I’ve had too many things going on.

For the past couple of days I have been trying to find a leak in an underground pipe. I’ve compared prices of several plumbers and narrowed my choice down to the premiere leak detection experts who charge a pretty hefty sum of about $3,000. The plumbers came and pumped helium on the pipes and brought out their top-of-the-line listening and smelling devices so they could pinpoint within a foot where the leak was, I was quite impressed.

Then I remembered reading about a primitive method called “DOWSING.” Jokingly, I asked them if they ever tried it.

“Strangely enough, it works!” said the 2 plumbers; “In fact, we have one inside the truck.” So they pulled out 2 L-shaped copper rods and showed me how it was done. I couldn’t believe my eyes because the 2 rods crossed right on top of the spot their expensive contraptions said the water leak was. I kid you not! It really worked!

Below is a link to a quick video I took of the plumber demonstrating how the dowsing rods worked:
DOWSING DEMO

Do you have any explanation for this? I don’t. I really don’t.

“However, there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries, and He has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will take place in the latter days This was your dream and the visions in your mind while on your bed.”

— Daniel 2:28

Not sure how accurate this guy is and where he based his research on but it seems correct. And in case you didn’t know, Filipinos (not Philipinos) come from the Philippines. Why? I’m guessing it’s because Filipinos spell words as they sound.

If you aren’t into spiritual stuff, please move on. This video isn’t for you.
I didn’t know Billy Graham had a daughter. And I was pleasantly surprised that she is a solid believer just like her Dad. Interesting talk about the spiritual world mentioned in the book of Daniel in the Old Testament.

    Wow… That was a great to hear about the history of when Filipinos first started migrating to North America. I’m really surprised about the timeline I never dreamt that they came here that early this should be common knowledge I don’t believe it’s taught in school because I never heard about it.

    Great issue especially the video about Filipinos and the Daniel Prayer. I never knew about Billy Grahams Daughter but she even looks like him. The Drawings are great as well, thanks for sharing Raoul.

    Hi Raoul,
    Fascinating article. So did the plumbers charge you $3,000 for finding the
    leak by dowsing?

    Interesting. Years ago my wife and I went to visit a grammar school (Mayberry Elementary in Echo Park / Silverlake – L.A.) friend in Paradise, CA. Steve, he tended to be a real skeptic about things. So I was really surprised when he told us that he was a dowser. He demonstrated it to us and even had my wife and one of our kids do it! It didn’t work for me. But the look on my wife’s face when the rods started turning in her unwilling hands convinced me! He learned how to do it from an old man that found a well for him on his property.

    Another water story . Last week I saw an interview of a woman that was just released from prison after 40 years of being incarcerated. One of the questions the journalist (Amy Goodman) asked her in the interview, the answer to which surprised me, and made me think.

    Q.: What is the biggest surprise or change you have seen since being released?

    A.: I am surprised how everybody has to buy drinking water. When I was young drinking from the tap was not a problem, but after playing fun hard games was a real treat! What happened? Kind of snuck up on us, and we take it for granted. However not in Flint, Michigan where they have plenty of water – just the dangerous kind for the kids sadly.

    Good thing the Christian community and Rotary continues to build wells.

    Proverbs 16:22 Amplified Bible (AMP)
    “Understanding (spiritual insight) is a [refreshing and boundless] wellspring of life to those who have it,
    But to give instruction and correction to fools is foolishness.”

    Thank you,

    (:>}) – Chuck
