(Philippines)–And, in the 4th part in our series on New Tribes Missionaries Martin and Gracia Burnham, Gracia tells tells us about her rescue after crossing a muddy logging road in the Philippines. “The military had seen our footprints and they’d been following us all day and they just opened up on us. Right away I was wounded, and came to rest next to Martin and he was bleeding from his chest. My job was to make them think I was dead too and I was just laying totally still. And, when the shooting became less sporadic I started just kind of moving my hand around. They saw me right away and as they drug me up the hill, I looked back and I knew he was dead. They called a helicopter and we left Martin just laying there in the rain and that was awful.” Tomorrow, the final part of our interview.
