It was a story that was talked about in newscasts around the world. Gracia and her husband Martin were serving in the Philippines. Martin was a missionary pilot, and he and Gracia were raising 3 children who were born while serving. During an anniversary getaway on a nearby resort island, Martin and Gracia awoke to a nightmare - as a radical Islamic terrorist group broke in, and took several hostages from the resort. They staying in captivity in horrendous conditions, always moving through the jungles while this group was running from the Philippine military. Sadly, during a rescue attempt, all three remaining hostages including Martin and Gracia were struck by gunfire, and only Gracia survived and was rescued. Her story and her faith are purely amazing.
