As America’s first foreign missionary, Adoniram Judson thirsted to see the Good News brought to the unreached Buddhists of Burma. His thirst would be quenched but at an unimaginable price. Adoniram survived starvation, imprisonment, and torture both on land and at sea only to watch his family, coworkers, and friends succumb to death.
In spite of heartache and depression, after twenty-seven years of hard work, Adoniram Judson finished the translation of the entire Bible into Burmese. Adoniram and his first wife Ann were the spark that spread the fire of the Gospel into Burma, and their evident love for the Burmese people is a compelling story of unswerving dedication and sacrifice.
