    I have a friend that may be one of those trapped. His family was called early this morning to come to the mine, But I haven't heard if he is one that came out safely, injured or is trapped. He is a deacon at a local Baptist church.

    There is another one that is a nephew of some in our church that is trapped.

    Please be in prayer.

    Of course I shall pray, for everyone trapped or injured.

    This nation has by far the best mine rescue know-how & equipment on earth, located nearby, as WV & PA are ptime coal mine country.

    I have been trying to confirm whether or not the deacon I mentioned is trapped, but everyone i know to call is up there. I do fear the worse.

    CNN is what i've been watching also, along with local coverage.

    and the real neat part. That Church they're meeting in, it's a Baptist Church, isn't it neat when the Body of Christ steps up and opens it's arms to the community?

    Awesome! [​IMG] :D [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Cost of labor is to low. If miners were paid better then the companies might find a way to robotize the equipment.

    The deacon I was talking about is on the above list. Martin Toler.


    At this time the one found dead is unidentified, and i am sure the families are going crazy thinking it is their loved one.

    Keep praying everyone, there is always hope to the very end.

    Lord Jesus, we ask for a miracle here and rescue those who are left, have mercy on all of them.
