James Noble Mackenzie, missionary to the New Hebrides for fifteen years and then to Korea for thirty, saviour of sufferers from leprosy, was a great and courageous pioneer. He was born on Isle Ewe off the west coast of Scotland in 1865. He worked his way through Divinity School and was called to be a missionary in the New Hebrides for the Victorian Presbyterian Church. Surrounded by a cannibalistic society, he taught himself the Nogugu language and translated scripture, establishing self-supporting Christian communities. When his wife died in 1909 he was pronounced unfit to work in the tropics. He transferred to Korea where he looked after many country churches, visiting them on foot and by bicycle or boat. He married Mary Kelly who had been a deaconess there since 1905. Mackenzie is best known for his work among the sufferers from leprosy. In 1912 he was put in charge of a home for terminally ill outcasts. By 1938 it was a hospital for 600. He retired in 1939 and served for a year as Moderator of his church. He used every opportunity to promote ecumenism and denounce racial discrimination.
