This Wednesday, we have the incredible privilege of having a very special guest speaker at Atonement! Gracia Burnham (held hostage by guerillas for over a year, etc...see bio below!) will be sharing at an event that is open to the whole family and the whole community! 6:30pm at Atonement, Wednesday, October 6th! Don't miss it! Bring a friend!
Gracia Burnham and her husband were missionaries to the Philippines for 17 years before being kidnapped and taken hostage by militant Muslims. They were in captivity for over one year and endured extreme hardships including extreme hunger, mortal danger and 17 gun battles.
In an attempt by the Philippine army to rescue them, the Burnhams were caught in the middle of the gunfire. Gracia was shot in the leg and her husband, Martin, was killed.
Since her rescue and return to the United States, Gracia has shared her story before many audiences and TV programs. She is a sought-after speaker and the author of two books. She is the mother of three grown children and resides in Kansas.
