The Chile Mine collapse of Aug 5, 2010

You surely heard about this on TV but then the news quickly died out so I, and probably you also, figured that they had been rescued and all is well.

Well, not so fast.

Seems they (all 33) are still there, still trapped in the mine !!!

And they are not expected to be rescued until sometime in early October or November or later.

Early October or November or later!   How can that be? 

And what are they doing.

Well, for one thing they are watching movies. 

And though not mentioned in the article, one movie that they will see is the Jesus Film.

An email from the Campus Crusade Ministry stated, “We have received word that the 33 miners in Northern Chile will receive a New Testament and "The Story of Jesus," the audio/radio adaptation of the "JESUS" film on an MP3 player. Some estimate that the men--trapped 2,300 feet (701 meters) underground since early August--may face separation from the outside world and their families until Christmas.“

This article is definitely a must read as it gives details about the rock fall, the days of total darkness and dust, and much more.  You will be amazed.

But wait, stop the presses, there is good news!

The article that we were going to post has been changed.  Now the revised article tells about a breakthrough and the expectant hope that now they will be rescued in Early October. HERE’S THE LINK
