Hurrah to the Chileans!

a writing by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

Today the country of Chile has made up history. Her 33 miners, who have been rescued after 68 days of being trapped under the earth's dark abyss, are a reminder of God's love and mercy.

It has been a great joy to see the local Chileans rejoicing after each miner came out of the capsule tube one by one. And the whole world through the powerful media brought the event to everyone's home, giving each one the chance to rejoice with the people of Chile. Peoples in the whole world are clapping their own hands as they stand and watch. Such a great victory in the human will to survive. Here is the ability to survive after all efforts of solidarity to rescue the trapped victims of nature's fury. Here is a rescue drama beyond the mind can grasp and yet is true. Those who have been entombed by the weight of the earth are removed from their own graves!

Majority points to the presence of the Mighty Hand that has been invoked and petitioned through all those 68 days. The call must have come from the lips of the 33 miners themselves plus from the hearts of their own friends and families. The knocking of the heavenly door must have come from the politicians or other leaders in the land or from those who simply have watched from afar. The knocking of the door has been strong, consistent, persistent and urgent and the Host of the House high above the clouds cannot just ignore. Today's event is a story of faith among Chileans and those who believe that God has shown his fingers on the pages of the Chilean history.
