As America's first foreign missionary, Adoniram Judson thirsted to see the Good News brought to the shrouded land 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, co-workers, and friends succumb to death.
In spite of heartache and depression, Adoniram Judson translated the entire Bible in into Burmese. To this day his work remains the only Burmese translation of the Bible available. 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 (1788-1850).
