Soon after September 11, the news media stepped up its coverage of Martin and Gracia Burnham, the missionary couple held hostage in the Philippine jungle by terrorists with ties to Osama bin Laden. After a year of captivity and a violent rescue that resulted in Martin's death, the world watched Gracia Burnham return home in June 2002.
In this riveting personal account, Burnham tells for the very first time the real story behind the news—about their harrowing ordeal, about how it affected their relationship with each other and with God, about the terrorists who held them, about the actions of the U.S. and Philippine governments, and about how they were affected by the prayers of thousands of Christians throughout the world.

Can faith, hope, and love survive a year of terror?
For American missionaries Martin and Gracia Burnham, what started out as a relaxing, once-in-a-lifetime anniversary getaway at an exotic island resort turned into one of the most horrific nightmares imaginable.
Kidnapped by the Abu Sayyaf, a terrorist group with ties to Osama bin Laden, the Burnhams were snatched away from friends and family and thrust into a life on the run in the Philippine jungle. During a perilous year in captivity, they faced near starvation, constant exhaustion, frequent gun battles, coldhearted murder―and intense soul-searching about a God who sometimes seemed to have forgotten them. In the Presence of My Enemies is a gripping firsthand account of faith, love, and struggle in the face of unnervingly casual brutality and terrible loss.
This updated edition contains never-before-published information on the fates of the Burnhams’ kidnappers, Gracia’s secret return trip to the Philippines, and life today in the Burnham family.
Gracia Burnham was born in Cairo, Illinois , January 17, 1959, a WWII veteran and former pastor and Bible teacher, currently residing in Cherokee Village, Arkansas. She graduated from Calvary Bible College in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1981, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Christian Education.
Gracia was married to Martin Burnham on May 28, 1983 and they graduated together from the New Tribes Mission Training Institute in Durant, Mississippi in1984. In March, 1986, Martin and Gracia left the states for a mission aviation assignment with New Tribes Mission in Northern Luzon, Philippines. They worked as New Tribes missionaries in the Philippines from 1986 to May 2001.
