Chilean miner promises to marry in the Church after rescue

.- One of the 33 miners trapped in the San Jose Mine in Atacama, Chile has promised his family that once rescued, he and his wife will officially marry in the Catholic Church.

According to the Spanish daily, La Razon, Esteban Rojas received a note from his wife, Jessica, expressing her hope that once he is rescued, “we will finally get married in the Church.” The two have been married civilly for 25 years.

Rojas responded: “Hi Jessica, thanks for your concern and for praying that we are all right. Say hello to the children, the grandchildren, my in-laws and my parents … I love you all, and keep praying that we get out of this place.  And when I get out, we’ll buy a wedding dress and get married in the Church.”

Jessica says she trusts Esteban will keep his promise, and has told friends she will be sending them a gift registry soon. “As you know, I need a stove and refrigerator!” she joked.

According to La Razon, the trapped miners have lost 22 pounds because of the underground pressure and temperatures in the mid-90s. Each day after eating and planning their schedule, they read their messages and organize the supplies that are being sent daily.
