    My heart grieved when I heard this morning of what had happened. Yet God is good. May He get glory from these events.

    It is sad indeed, yet they are with Jesus and rejoicing that their ordeal is finally over.

    Was this mentioned on any of the major news broadcasts?

    Here is the AP article:

    Martin Burnham, kidnapped more than a year ago along with his wife Gracia by the Abu Sayyaf extremist group, was killed by a gunshot during the raid near the town of Siraway, said Abaya, the Philippine deputy military chief of staff.

    Burnham's wife was being operated on in a military hospital in the southern city of Zamboanga, said Maj. Gen. Ernesto Carolina, commander of Philippine forces in the south.

    "She's here already," Carolina told reporters. "She is being operated on. It's a gunshot wound. She's talking. She's out of danger."

    Abaya said four of the kidnappers were killed and several soldiers wounded in the operation. Philippine officers said U.S. helicopters, part of a 1,000-strong contingent of U.S. troops advising Filipinos fighting the Abu Sayyaf, were retrieving more wounded from the clash scene.

    "We bear the torch, that flaming,
    fell from the hands of those,
    who gave their lives proclaiming,
    that Jesus died and rose!"

    May these sad events cause us to re-double our efforts to make Christ known.

    God does not waste the death of one of His own. Someone's life was changed because of this. Someone noticed. Someone recognized the truth of Christ.
