I’ve just finished reading Miracle in the Mine: One Man’s Story of Strength and Survival in the Chilean Mines, written by Jose Henriquez.
In chapter 13 Jose writes,
“As we seek the Lord and begin to grow in the things of God, we begin to acquire the three special tools in life that enable us to face any adversities.
Become persons of prayer. Prayer for a Christian is as important as the air that he breathes.
Become persons who treasure the Word of God. It is necessary to understand and know the Word of God, because it edifies, educates, strengthens, and teaches us how to live and act.
Become persons who dare to build churches without buildings. If we are people of prayer who know the Word and have faith, we can raise up a church wherever we go, regardless of the environment, context, historical era, or any other impediments.”
