In the Presence of My Enemies

Can faith, hope, and love survive a year of terror?

For American missionaries Martin and Gracia Burnham, what started out as a relaxing, once-in-a-lifetime anniversary getaway at an exotic island resort turned into one of the most horrific nightmares imaginable.

Kidnapped by the Abu Sayyaf, a terrorist group with ties to Osama bin Laden, the Burnhams were snatched away from friends and family and thrust into a life on the run in the Philippine jungle. During a perilous year in captivity, they faced near starvation, constant exhaustion, frequent gun battles, coldhearted murder—and intense soul-searching about a God who sometimes seemed to have forgotten them.

In this gripping firsthand account of faith, love, and struggle in the face of unnervingly casual brutality, you’ll go behind the scenes of a real-life drama, told in gritty detail by the least likely survivor.

To Fly Again

The world learned the horrendous details of Martin and Gracia Burnham’s yearlong captivity in Gracia’s best-selling, Gold Medallion Award-winning book, In the Presence of My Enemies. In this follow-up, Gracia reflects on the lessons and spiritual truths she learned in the jungle and how they apply to anyone’s life. Twenty-one brief, theme-based chapters squarely address the challenges each of us face as we pass through difficult times to take to the skies again.

This book offers no pat answers or easy solutions, just the battle-tested wisdom of a woman who lived her greatest nightmare and came through it more convinced of God’s grace than ever before.

¿Podrá la fe, la esperanza y el amor sobrevivir un año de terror?

el agotamiento constante, frecuentes tiroteos, asesinatos despiadados y un intenso
examen de conciencia acerca de un Dios que a veces parecía haberlos olvidado.
En este apasionante relato de primera mano sobre la fe, el amor y la lucha frente a una
brutalidad inquietante e informal, irás detrás de las escenas de un drama de la vida
real, contado con gran detalle por la sobreviviente menos probable.

Gracia served in various roles supporting the aviation program and also home-schooling their children – all of whom were born in the Philippines.
