Modern day Judsons
Adoniram Judson and his wife, Ann, left America in 1812 for Burma (today, Myanmar). Adoniram was the first American overseas missionary. For 38 years he endured imprisonment, torture, illness, depression, isolation and the loss of two wives and several children to take the Gospel to the unreached peoples of Burma. When he died at sea in 1850, people wondered who would follow.
