     21st May : Our very own Lily Gaynor

"In 1957 freshly qualified nurse and WEC missionary Lily Gaynor set sail for Guinea-Bissau, to live among the Papel tribe. Tuberculosis, malaria, and typhoid were rife. Children were grossly malnourished; witch doctors flourished. Lily set up a clinic under the mango trees, administering penicillin ('God's needle'). Medical care didn't stop there: pigs, cows, rabbits and hens all passed through Lily's hands. Many villagers suffered agonizing toothache: Lily learned emergency dentistry. The book is filled with one arresting medical story after another. In the afternoons she learned Papel. 

In the evenings she invented an alphabet, and finally translated the entire New Testament, now published with Wycliffe Bible Translators. 

This evening she's going to explain to us the basics of language and translation
