Concerning the trapped Chilean miners, this morning I received the below exciting report from a missionary friend with Campus Crusade for Christ International, a ministry which has tens of thousands of staff in virtually every country of the world. If you would like to watch this Jesus Film free online in one of the hundreds of languages available, go to http://www.jesusfilm.org/film-and-media/watch-the-film
We have just received this news from our Latin American office. What a story of good news…and to know they have received the true Good News Story.

Just a quick update on the situation of the Chilean miners. They are being brought to the surface one by one all day today after 66 days trapped underground. If you have watched the news, most of them are wearing a t-shirt with the logo from the Chilean flag. The t-shirts were a gift from Campus Crusade for Christ Chile. Over the last couple of weeks, they received MP3 players with the audio version of the JESUS Film and the Bible in audio format. Here is the note from our national director, Christian Maureira, which I received this morning:
Probably you are watching on TV the rescue of the miners and also maybe you noticed a T Shirt they are wearing. All those T Shirts are a gift from Campus Crusade for Christ Chile. In the front you can read “Gracias Señor, Thank You Lord” and on the back; the Psalm 95:4 "Porque en su mano están las profundidades de la tierra, y las alturas de los montes son suyas" “In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also”.
Also, on one sleeve we put The Jesus Film Project image, and on the other sleeve Cruzada Estudiantil y Profesional para Cristo image.
The idea was to glorify our Lord with all this and also to express our love and concern for them by giving them the Jesus Film and the Bible in audio through the MP3s.
They received many gifts but they decided to wear our T Shirts and we praise God for this.
I am writing you in order you can be informed because the Chilean TV says that 1,000,000,000 of people in this moment are watching the rescue.
Blessings from Chile,
Jesus is my inspiration.
We are thankful that the men are being brought out safely and that they have chosen to glorify God in their rescue!
