Not more than 25 years ago, they were the first outsiders to come to Irian Jaya. Outsiders who will never
become insiders, the missionaries of Irian Jaya introduced the twentieth century to the native peoples.

Moira Rankin reveals, the greatest effect of their work is on their own personal development.
