Meet the man who’s been digging a hole in the jungle for 18 years because ”God told him to’

 A man claims God told him to start digging a hole 18 years ago, and he literally hasn’t stopped since.
Santiago Sanchez, 69, says he regards it as the Lord’s work and he devotes every waking hour to the project.

The pensioner heads to the tunnel in the city of Berlin, in the western El Salvador department of Usulutan, at around 3 AM.And every time he emerges he is carrying around 90 pounds of rock, stones and debris, following what God told him.

During an interview with Univision journalist Ernesto Rivas, Sanchez explained:

“What I am doing is a spiritual revelation from God.” “Only I am allowed to go to the end, because I am God’s tunnel digger. Nobody else is allowed to go there.”

The journalist who went into the tunnel to have a look confessed that by the time he got halfway, was struggling to breathe and had to leave quickly.

Despite his conviction that he is following God’s orders, he has many critics and many more who laugh at what he is doing.
His wife, named Isabel Ventura, said that “there are people who say that he is crazy” but he answers that “no one knows what God is going to demand from you.”
Because nobody else other than Santiago has ever been to the end, he is the only one who knows how far it actually goes but after 18 years, it is believed to be some way.
