About the Guest Speaker:
Gracia Burnham is the widow of Martin Burnham, a former jungle pilot with New Tribes in the Philippines, and the mother of Jeff, Mindy, and Zach.
On May 27, 2001, while celebrating their 18th wedding anniversary at Dos Palmas Resort off Palawan Island, the Burnhams were taken hostage and held captive on Basilan Island.
On the afternoon of June 7, 2002, over a year since their abduction, the Philippine Military attempted one of several rescues. Tragically, Martin was killed during the gunfight. Wounded, but alive, Gracia was rescued and returned home under a national spotlight. Since that time, Gracia has authored two books, and regularly speaks to leaders about their resilience in adversity.
