[UPDATE 10/13/10] LAST MINER RESCUED: (AP)—Luis Urzua ascended smoothly through 2,000 feet of rock, completing a 22 1/2-hour rescue operation that unfolded with remarkable speed and flawless execution. Before a jubilant crowd of about 2,000 people, he became the 33rd miner to be rescued.

Last miner rescued"We have done what the entire world was waiting for," he told Chilean President Sebastian Pinera immediately after his rescue. "The 70 days that we fought so hard were not in vain. We had strength, we had spirit, we wanted to fight, we wanted to fight for our families, and that was the greatest thing." (Photo: FOXNews.com)

Baptist Press News reports that when the mine collapsed, three of the miners?including Jos? Henr?quez who has been leading a Bible study underground?were Christians. Since then, two more of them have made professions of faith.

Rescue engineer Igor Bravo, a member of First Baptist Church of Santiago, was reportedly one of the first to hear of Henr?quez's request for a pastor and contacted the Chilean Baptist Union.

Bernardino Morales, director of the Baptist union's Social Testimony Network, called Marcelo Leiva, pastor of Vallenar Baptist Church in Vallenar, Chile, located about two hours away and told him, "Pastor, it's either you, or it's you."

The report notes that when Leiva arrived at Camp Hope?the camp set up near the buried mine?he didn't know anyone, but Henr?quez's family quickly connected him with other families.

"That [connection] allowed a lot of other people to hear the Word," Leiva says, "and to know that in the midst of this catastrophe, God is in control, and it is the Lord who has kept their family members alive."

According to the report, the wife of one of the miners who became a Christian since being trapped in the mine met with Leiva over the past two weeks and also accepted Christ.
