Praise and Prayer

Praise and Pray: The latest report from New Tribes Mission (NTM) is that kidnapped missionaries Martin and Gracia Burnham are relatively safe and healthy. Sources that NTM considers reliable have recently reported that Martin and Gracia are alive and together. Their kidnappers, the Abu Sayyaf Group, are reportedly holding the third hostage, Filipina nurse Deborah Yap, at another location. She is said to be tending members of the rebel group who were wounded during combat with the Philippine military. Martin, 42, who was raised in the Philippines by missionary parents, and Gracia, 43, from Kansas, were kidnapped on May 27, 2001.
