Mission Festival Welcomes Gracia Burnham
For 17 years, Martin and Gracia Burnham served as missionaries in the Philippines with New Tribes Mission. Martin was an experienced jungle pilot who brought mail and supplies to the region. In 2001, they were taken hostage by militants. After 376 days of captivity, Martin was killed during a rescue attempt, but Gracia was freed. Gracia is now a popular speaker and a New York Times bestselling author of two books – In the Presence of My Enemies and To Fly Again. She will speak at Mission Festival on November 1.
