Ann Judson: A Missionary Life for Burma
Join the exciting adventure of Ann and Adoniram Judson, one of the first overseas missionaries from America. Ann's story is a powerful testimony to the love, grace, and faithfulness of God.
In October 1810 a twenty-year-old girl in the quiet New England town of Bradford wrote the following words in her journal: 'If nothing in providence appears to prevent, I must spend my days in a heathen land. I am a creature of God, and He has an undoubted right to do with me, as seems good in His sight. . . He has my heart in His hands, and when I am called to face danger, to pass through scenes of terror and distress, He can inspire me with fortitude, and enable me to trust in Him. Jesus is faithful; his promises are precious. Were it not for these considerations. I should sink down with despair. . .'
Ann Hasseltine had received a proposal of marriage from Adoniram Judson, who was shortly to leave for Asia as one of America's first oversea missionaries. And thus commenced one of the great drama of church history - a saga of love, courage, suffering, and perseverance.
In this biography Ann is allowed to speak for herself. Sharon James has skillfully woven together extracts from her Memoir and other first-hand accounts with linking narrative in a way that brings Ann's story alive for today and is a powerful testimony to the love, grace, and faithfulness of God.
