Chilean miners discover Christ: choose to wear t-shirts praising God

October 14, 2010

“Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

On October 13, 2010, 33 Chilean miners were rescued after 66 days of being trapped underground.

Over the 66 day period, they were given many gifts, including gifts from Campus Crusade for Christ Chile. CCC Chile provided each miner with MP3 players featuring audio versions of the JESUS Film and the Bible – as well as a CCC t-shirt. We praise the Lord that during their time underground, two miners found Christ, as well as one of their wives, and others found a renewal of faith.

When the miners were rescued, one-by-one, they presented themselves in the t-shirts that read, “Thank You, Lord” and bearing the JESUS Film Project logo. On the back is written, Psalm 95:4  “In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also”.

One of the miners that was called to the Lord, knelt and prayed the moment he was rescued.

Another miner, Mario Sepulveda , who handed out rocks from the bottom of the mine as souvenirs, stated: “I seized the hand of God, it was the best hand. I always knew God would get us out of there.”

It truly is quite an amazing story of God’s faithfulness and the strength of His power. God never leaves us, even in our darkest moments. He walks with us through our pain and suffering and guides us to our triumphs. We just need to hold his hand.
