I’m pleased to announce that Gracia Burnham will be one of the speakers at a free conference being sponsored by the Voice of the Martyrs in Flagstaff, Arizona, this summer. You may know of Gracia as the author of “In the Presence of My Enemies”, which describes her experiences as a hostage of the Abu Sayyaf in the Philippines.
I got to hear her speak at VOM’s national conference in Oklahoma last year. (You can the blog comments I posted about it then: http://notesfromdaniel.blogspot.com/2008/07/big-name-speaker.html) She is a good speaker, with genuine depth.
However, honestly I am actually looking forward even more to messages by two men you’ve probably never heard of, Mujahid el Masih from Pakistan and Getaneh Getaneh from Ethiopia. I’ve had the blessing of spending time in person with both of them and the experiences were unforgettable. You can read my blog about my time with Mujahid here: http://notesfromdaniel.blogspot.com/2008/07/team-luncheon.html
There will be a couple of other good speakers there as well, including a key person regarding VOM’s North Korean work.
It’s in Flagstaff, Arizona, Saturday, July 11th, from 9 AM to 5 PM.
As I said, the conference is totally free but you do need to register because seating is limited. You can find more information and register at www.vommeetings.com.
If you have any questions about the conference, feel free to contact me. I hope to see you there!
