Full Product Description
‘God’s Needle’ is the inspiring story of a young nurse who dedicated her life to nursing a nation.
Lily Gaynor had just qualified as a nurse in 1957 when she set sail for Guinea-Bissau (on the North-Western African coastline, between Senegal and Guinea). With the help of WEC Lily went to live among the Papel tribe, an area in desperate need of medical care. When she arrived she realised that the need was greater than she was told:
• Tuberculosis, Malaria & Typhoid were everywhere
• Children were malnourished
• Witch Doctors grasped all the power
She set up a little clinic under a mango tree treating those who came to the strange white girl, and the rest as they say is history. Lily brought healing to the entire area and also preached, demonstrated and translated the gospel (inventing an alphabet around the local dialect).
This book documents Lily’s incredible achievements: the on-the-spot medical stories, the opposition she faced from Witch Doctors, the colleagues who tried to convince her that her efforts were insignificant and worthless, and the love, hope and restoration she brought to a nation.
