Adoniram Judson (first American foreign missionary)

Judson served in what was formerly called Burma, bringing the Gospel to unreached peoples. His view of Calvinism and the sovereignty of God was what sustained him in the midst of stormy trials.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
