 About the Book 

Calista H. Vinton (1807-1864) and her husband Justus H. Vinton (1806-1858) were the American Baptist missionaries who labored for many years in Burma (now known as Myanmar) preaching the gospel amongst the Karen people. Since Justus and Calista wereMoreCalista H. Vinton (1807-1864) and her husband Justus H. Vinton (1806-1858) were the American Baptist missionaries who labored for many years in Burma (now known as Myanmar) preaching the gospel amongst the Karen people. Since Justus and Calista were sufficiently familiar with the Karen language, they immediately commenced their mission work to Karens in the jungles around Moulmein (now known as Mawlamyine). They travelled in native canoes, on horseback, on elephants, on buffalo carts and on foot. At first they went together from village to village preaching to the multitudes. Afterward, they went separately because they received so many invitations from distant villages. The work of preaching was combined with the ministering to the sick. Calista held prayer meetings in villages and Justus worked on the translation of the New Testament into Karen and wrote commentaries.
