In the Presence of My Enemies

In the Presence of My Enemies - Gracia Burnham, Dean Merill I remember when all this took place. I have wanted to read the book for quite some time, so when it became available for Kindle as a free download, I hopped on the opportunity. Once I started reading, it was hard to put down. A very good read, very compelling story of these people who were kidnapped while serving The Lord in the Philippines. I found myself crying on several occasions -- so touched by the human compassion of these people and their love for The Lord and their ability to pray for their captors. It's a must read in my opinion for anyone, especially Christians entering ministry here or overseas. It has taught and encouraged me of the importance to pray for our missionaries. I no longer will think of missions in a slight way, but I am encouraged to pray for them like never before. Thank you, Gracia Burnham for sharing your and Martin's story.
