One Mission Stories "After the Show" - Gracia Burnham

December 15 2014

We hope you enjoyed last night's (Sunday, Jan. 11) SPECIAL edition of One Mission Stories, OMS' radio program, featuring New Tribes Mission missionary Gracia Burham. Gracia, along with her husband Martin, was kidnapped by terrorists in the Philippines in 2001. Martin was killed after a year of captivity during gunfire in a rescue attempt. Gracia's powerful testimony is incredible. They were in the Philippines for 17 years.

Gracia grew up in Canada in a family that loved and supported many missionaries. Later, she moved to Illinois and Kansas, where she still lives today. Her heroes were great missionary warriors like Amy Carmichael.

She shares some profound thoughts on sharing the responsibilities in ministry and how doing all for the glory of God! Also about everything about God is real and true...even in the midst of tragedy!

Everyone has a story ... enjoy Gracia's!
