Filipinos Are Worth Dying For

On The Journey Conversations by National WMU, Sandy Wisdom-Martin

Episode notes

Today’s conversation is with Mark Stevens who serves with the International Mission Board. In March of 2003, terrorists placed a bomb at a small airport in the Philippines. The explosion took the lives of 23 people including our missionary, Bill Hyde. Bill’s widow, Lyn Hyde, placed flowers and a sign at the airport that said, “Filipinos are worth dying for.” That courageous gesture galvanized Southern Baptists in the Philippines. Filipinos began saying they wanted to be missionaries to unreached people groups. Mark talks about his experience that day and the miraculous things he has seen God do since that tragic event.
