Chilean Miner: God Has Never Left Us

The rescue of all 33 miners, what a miracle and a blessing to both them and their families. However, it took a 19 year old miner to remind the world of whose hands they were really in:

“There are actually 34 of us,” Jimmy Sanchez, a nineteen-year-old miner, wrote in a letter sent up from the mine on Tuesday, "because God has never left us down here."

You can read more of this at the ChristianityToday Blog.

Our news has not mentioned their T-shirts. (Surprise!) and what they have printed on them.

The front says "“¡Gracias Señor!”  (Thank You, Lord!”).

The back says:
“En sus manos están las simas de la tierra, y suyas son las crestas de los montes” (Salmo 95,4)  (In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. –  Psalms 95:4)

While this rescue will be analyzed and praised as an engineering feat, and the result of endless effort by both the mining company and Chilean government, we know were the real miracle comes from…

As the bottom line of each shirt states

“To Him is all the honor and glory.”
