(KSL News) The families of the miners trapped in the Sago Mine in West Virginia are showing support for families of missing miners in Utah.

A letter published in the Deseret Morning News reads in part:

"Not many people can actually say we know what your hearts are feeling... We have hope for your miners and will continue to have that hope until we are told differently. Please accept these heartfelt comments and know that you are not alone in your grief and pain at this time."

The letter is signed, the family of Sago miner Marty Bennett.


The Letter from the Sago Mine Families:To the families,

Not many people can actually say we know what your hearts are feeling. We want you to know that this family can. We are the family of Sago Miner, Marty Bennett.

We want you to know that we are praying for all your miners and the entire State of West Virginia have you in their thoughts. Please know the Lord Jesus Christ died and paid for our sins and that he loves us more than we can ever imagine. Never give up hope. Put your trust in the Lord and know that his plan is always the perfect plan. We may not understand that plan and sometimes those plans take a route we do not like.

We have hope for your miners and will continue to have that hope until we are told differently. Please accept these heartfelt comments and know that you are not alone in your grief and pain at this time. Pray without ceasing for your mines as we will do the same here.

I, Pamela Campbell, along with all the other Sago Families, Peggy Cohen (Fred Ware), Debbie Hamner (Jr. Hamner), The Terry Helms Family, Samatha Lewis (David Lewis Family), The Jim Bennett Family, The Jessie Jones Family, Marshall Winans Family, Jackie Weaver Family, The Tom Anderson Family, Jerry Groves Family, Martin Toler Family along with Mr. Randall McCloy, The Darby, Ky Families and the Arocoma Families have fought long and hard trying to get laws passed to insure that the mines our loved ones enter are as safe as they can be.

Again, we pray for your miners and we are praying for you, the families.

With love and concern

The Marty Bennett Family Judy (wife), Russell (Son), Bobby Jo (daughter-in-law) All Marty's family
