Product description


'John Algate has written an enthralling narrative of Jessie’s remarkable work…. The skilful combination of narrative and excerpts from Jessie’s writing makes captivating reading.'  Mignon Goswell (Review in New Life Christian Newspaper)

'John Algate has done a masterly job in compiling, organizing and writing this book about Jessie Williamson…. he captured her personality, and also successfully wove her own words and other people’s recollections into a fascinating narrative…. When she arrived in Papua, the situation was wild and primitive, but Jessie took it all in her stride, learning how to cope with the challenges, restrictions and adversities. John Algate has captured this well. However, he has also traced through Jessie’s recollections the changes that were taking place in Papua from the beginning to the end of her years there….'  John D Wilson (Review in World Team Newsletter)

'Jessie Williamson is a godly and ingeniously heroic example of Christ-like servanthood. Spread the word, fellow Christians! Urge everyone you know to be blessed and inspired by Jessie's House of Needles-an epic biography.' Don Richardson (Author of Peace Child, Lords of the Earth, and other books)

Product Description

'My clinic now has a new Dani name, the house of needles. Quite appropriate don't you think?'  Jessie wrote to her hundreds of supporters back home.

Jessie Williamson was a courageous missionary nurse who devoted 35 years of her life to tribal people in the remote and dangerous highlands of West Papua. She was both witness and participant in the rapid transformation of their stone-age societies with its triumphs and tragedies, social, religious and political turmoil, life and death struggles, earthquakes, droughts, and the uneasy clash of old Gods and new beliefs. Jessie nursed, evangelised and built a network of village medics and midwives who continue her work today. Jessie’s House of Needles tells the fascinating story of a truly remarkable Australian.
