Daniel Lovering is a journalist, photographer and videographer based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. A former foreign correspondent, he has reported from nearly a dozen countries on subjects ranging from business and politics to conflicts and natural disasters. His work has appeared in The New York Times, The Economist and Scientific American, among other publications.
Lovering reports on a group of American missionaries working in the war zones of Burma two centuries after the first American missionaries arrived in the country. These modern missionaries, who often hike long distances through the jungle to reach remote villages, reflect the changing role of American missionaries in a world where Christianity is no longer a predominantly western religion.
