Many people do not know what the writing said on the shirts of most of the rescued Chilean miners or where the shirts came from.
José Henríquez one of the trapped miners, an evangelical Christian, assumed the role of a spiritual leader of the group giving encouragement and conducting daily Bible studies.
After Christian Maureira, national director of Campus Crusade for Christ in Chile, met Hettez, the daughter of Henríquez at Camp Esperanza (Hope) he suggested the idea of a T-shirt to Henríquez.
Townhall.com reports Maureira said he would supply the shirts and , Henríquez "received the idea with rejoicing. They had decided to say thank you to God." Henríquez and other miners even gave input into what they wanted the shirt to say.
According to freerepublic.com Henríquez sent a letter to Maureira with a reference to Psalm 95:4 (NIV): "In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him." These words are on the back of the shirts.
The front of the shirts says, 'Gracias Señor' – 'Thank you Lord." and on the left sleeve is the word Jesus.
