"Moses put that cross in the desert and people came. But there was no kapi (water) and people were worried. And the non-believers nearly hit moses. A group of men who believed took Moses to the rock. They waited for him halfway. God had given Moses tow big punu (wooden staffs) and Moses hit that rock with only one of them and there was water. The water flowed all the way to the people. Everybody drinking, Anangu tjuta (all the people), camels, horses, donkeys. There are anangu there who are non-believers and also anangu believers and both drink the water and this is good."
