Gracia Burnham Visits TWR
Former New Tribes missionary Gracia Burnham visited TWR during July, 2013 to look at possible ways her ministry and TWR could partner together. Gracia and her late husband, Martin were kidnapped by the Abu Sayyaf Group in the Philippines in May 2001. On June 7, 2002 a firefight broke out between the Philippine military and Abu Sayaaf in an effort to free the Burnhams. Martin was killed but Gracia was wounded but freed from captivity.
Please pray for both ministries as we look at ways we can partner together to create a radio program for the nation of the Philippines. Gracia is a natural storyteller and her ability to communicate the Gospel through stories will be very effective with audience we intend to reach.
