One of the most significant things I worked on in 2014 was the launch of VOMRadio, the half-hour weekly audio program that gives VOM a new way of sharing the voice of our persecuted brothers and sisters. So far the response has been very positive.
The most-listened to episode was our interview with Gracia Burnham, former missionary to the Philippines and former hostage of the radical Islamic group, Abu Sayyaf.
I appreciate so much how transparent Gracia is as she tells her story. She doesn't present her time of suffering as a string of victories for her mighty, overcoming faith. She's honest about the days when her faith wavered and she could just barely hang on. But even on those days, she found God faithful.
I hope you'll find her testimony a blessing, and I would love to hear your feedback on the new radio program, either in comments to this post or through the feedback options at www.VOMRadio.net.
Thank you for listening, and please pray for our efforts to improve and expand the reach of VOMRadio in 2015.
