The story of the 33 trapped miners in Chile is amazing! So far, they’ve survived 17 days inside a mine shaft shelter the size of a small apartment — 2,300 feet underground. I can’t even imagine being stuck in my comfortable basement with four people for a fraction of that time! And not only have they survived, but their messages are positive and filled with hope.
These survivors have a long wait for their rescue — it is estimated to take three months. Three months can feel like a lifetime in such close quarters with so many people and no conveniences. Imagine the lack of hygiene and toilets! Most people don’t even like to use port-a-potties or latrines!
My prayers go out to these survivors who show that even in the worst case scenario, there is HOPE!
