Josh, his dad, and some older boys went hiking in the Hidden Treasure Mine, Stockton, Utah. They planned to explore the mine and camp there that night. It was a tradition for scouts.
Let's Explore this mine!
One of the boys all of the sudden couldn't see, so Josh's dad took him back and told Josh to catch up with the other boys ahead.
Come with me. Josh, catch up with the other boys.
Josh's dad had seen the last group of boys come out of the mine. Josh was not among them. Josh's dad was getting woried
Where's Josh, I thought he was with you guys!?
We thought he was with YOU.
I'm lost and it is too dark to see!
A mine historian named John Skinner heard about Josh. He new the mine very well. He wanted to help but the crew told him there were already enough people helping and he wasn't needed.
I know this mine like the back of my hand. I can help you find Josh. Just let me in.
I am sorry sir but we have enough people. You aren't going to be much help.
John snook in through a different entrance. He had 3 spots that could be a possible hiding spot for Josh. The first 2 were empty. But on the third one they heard a cry.
What?! Ray doesn't hear well!
Wait, I hear something! Keeping yelling
John and his crew had found Josh! They started crying but Josh remained calm. They brought him out of the cave to his dad. But Josh was very weak. He had gone 5 days without food and water. His faith is what kept him alive.
