Review: In the Presence of My Enemies – Gracia Burnham

Missionaries have a unique calling upon their lives that non-missionaries may never understand – Gracia and Martin Burnham were two such missionaries. In the Presence of Mine Enemies by Gracia Burnham (audio or print), tells of tragedy and hope in a world that many of us will never experience. They (along with their children) ministered in the Philippines with a mission aviation ministry.  Martin, an accomplished pilot and missionary kid himself, was uniquely qualified for this outreach ministry.

Little did Martin and Gracia know that an anniversary getaway would turn into a year long trek through the Philippine jungle as prisoners of the Abu Sayyaf terrorist organization.  Gracia masterfully crafts a narrative of suspense as each day in the jungle is a battle of will and a test of their dependence upon our Lord.

Through jungle and gunfire, the reader learns of the atrophies of war and the reckless pursuit of ill-trained soldiers for recovering hostages.  The story unfolds with life after the jungle adventure, and the pain of moving on after tragedy.  This story offers hope and redemption in a flawed world.

  1. Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Though you’d wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.
