In the summer of 1990 it was a huge drought and the disciples were telling to elder Paisie, who was lying in his bed :
`It doesn`t rain, father, it is a huge drought !`
He answered: `Let us pray to God with tears and fast as God has from where to give if He has to whom to give !
After it started to rain the disciples told him : `Elder Paisie, it is raining outside !`
Then he started crying in his bed and he told to his disciple who stayed in his cell, to monk Gerasimos:
`Bring me a glass with rain water from outside to drink cause God knows whose tears are these!`
