Miracle in the Mine is the testimony of José Henríquez---the pastor of the 33 Chilean miners whose grueling ordeal and amazing rescue captured the attention of the entire world. It is the story of God preparing Henríquez for his greatest test as he spent 69 days trapped underground in the San José mine in northern Chile. Includes an exclusive 8-page full-color set of pictures.
Jose Henriquez was the second of seven children and began working in the mines at the age of 19. He became a qualified operator of large drilling machinery, a job that took him to work sites in several cities and at various mine locations. In 2010 he was one of 33 miners who survived the disastrous collapse of the San José mine located in the Atacama region of northern Chile. He played a unique role in those events as a child of God. He was able to help his companions in distress make a permanent commitment to God as they prayed and waited to be rescued. He and his wife, Blanca Hettiz, and their two daughters and one granddaughter live in the city of Talca, located in the Maule region of Chile.
