In 1940, China's northwest desert area encountered an unprecedented years of famine. Islamist and Taoist believers conducted their own unique ceremony to pray for rain from heaven but without success. When people began to despair, a foreign pastor came all the way here and God actually magically brought a rain. People frantically rushed out of the house to grab their seeds to plant and more souls become God's devout believers. Sadly God did not bring rain again. Desperate people had to leave their homes to find a place to survive. The priest also left this barren land. A shepherd boy saw all this. He became the first friend of the priest here.
