(Philippines) — Meanwhile, Christmas came and went to the disappointment of many who have been praying for two missionaries held hostage in the Philippines. Martin and Gracia Burnham with New Tribes Mission are still in the hands of the Abu Sayyaf, the alleged terrorist group who has held them since May 27th. The holiday was particularly difficult for the Burnham’s family, especially their three children. Adding to the difficulty is the fact that there have been no reports of activity to free the Burnhams. Continue to pray for their swift and safe release.
