Jessie’s House of Needles

Jessie Williamson was a courageous missionary nurse who de- voted 35 years of her life to tribal people in the remote and dan- gerous highlands of West Papua. 

She was both witness and participant in the rapid transformation of tgheir stone-age socie- ties with its triumphs and tragedies, social, religious and political turmoil, life and death struggles, earthquakes, droughts, and the uneasy clash of old Gods with new beliefs. Jessie nursed, evan- gelised and built a network of village medics and midwives who continue her work today.
