Ann Browning trained as a secretary at Avondale College, New South Wales, Australia. An Australian, born in Papua New Guinea of missionary parents, Browning has served the church as a pastor’s spouse, assistant pastor, and counsellor in Australia, the Solomon Islands, Pitcairn Island and Norfolk Island. She has conducted a number of seminars on grief and loss, and on prayer. She is married to Michael with two adult children and eight grandchildren.

Roy and Lorna Harrison served as Adventist missionaries in the South Pacific islands. Beginning in 1944, they worked in Samoa, New Zealand, Papua, New Guinea, and the Solomon Islands. Roy Harrison was nicknamed “Hurricane Harrison” by all who knew him.1

Early Life

Roy Alec Harrison was born in Wonthaggi, Victoria, on March 30, 1914.2 His parents were Alfred St. Arnaud Harrison and Agnes Isobel Raeburn. Roy was the third child of four children: Norman, Roy, Valerie, and Lilly (who died at birth).3 Around that time, Alfred and Agnes Harrison were given the responsibility of their nephew Arthur when a baby, and raised him as their own.

Lorna May Stephen was born in Footscray, Melbourne, Victoria, on August 23, 1920, to Charles Patrick Stephen and Eleanor Rose Sharples.4 Lorna was the first of three children born Charles and Eleanor Stephen. In addition to two younger siblings, Charles and Gwen, she had two older brothers, Frederick and William, sons from her mother’s first marriage to Frederick Young who had been killed in World War I.

Early Education

Roy Harrison attended Wonthaggi Primary School and then Wonthaggi Technical College for his high school, merit, and intermediate certificates. He transferred to Melbourne University for his matriculation certification. Harrison learned to play the violin as a child and became an accomplished violinist. He was offered a position with the Melbourne Philharmonic Orchestra after his matriculation. His mother had become a Seventh-day Adventist and shared her faith with her children.5 Both Norman and Roy Harrison became Adventists and in doing so, Roy made the choice not to pursue a career in violin.

Lorna Stephen attended Footscray Primary School before progressing to Williamstown High school. She left school early and was employed by Vida Turner, designing, drawing, and preparing silk screens for printing on fabric. Lorna became a manager and was sent to Sydney to start a branch of the company there. She left the company when she was 21 years old to attend the Australasian Missionary College.6

Lorna Stephen met David Down when she was 15 years old and they eventually became engaged.7 Attending an evangelistic campaign in Melbourne, they both studied the Bible e with J. B. Conley and were baptized. Her parents at that stage did not accept her decision and made her life difficult.8

Early Service

Roy Harrison was baptized in 1935 and enrolled at Australasian Missionary College at Cooranbong, New South Wales, to train as a teacher.9 On completion of his studies, Harrison was appointed a teacher at Hawthorn Adventist School in the Victorian Conference at the beginning of 1937 to be a teacher.10 He left teaching after a short time and in May 1938 enrolled at the Sydney Adventist Sanitarium and Hospital to train as a nurse.11 He completed almost two years of training at the San but left because of illness.12 He then went back to Victoria and worked as a literature evangelist.13 Then in 1942 he enrolled in the Ministerial Training Program at the AMC.

After leaving Vida Turner in 1942, Lorna Stephen trained as a Bible worker at Australasian Missionary College. David Down also attended the college to train for ministry.14 Their engagement was broken during the year at college. Harrison had noticed Lorna Stephen early in the year, but believed her to be engaged. At the end of the year, he discovered she was no longer engaged and he invited her to holiday with his parents. Their romance blossomed and they were married on December 21, 1943.15

Mission Field Service

At the beginning of 1944, Roy and Lorna Harrison were appointed to Samoa where Roy became the principal of Vailoa School and Lorna assisted in the school.16 Leaving Sydney on March 1, 1944, they travelled by ship to Auckland, New Zealand, where they waited until a vessel became available to take them to Samoa.17 They arrived in Samoa in early June and quickly adjusted to their new environment.18 They both learned to speak in Samoan and could still sing in Samoan, many years later. Their acquired nursing skills were also often in demand.19

After only twelve months in Samoa, Lorna Harrison contracted filariasis (elephantiasis). In order for her to heal, the couple had to move to a cooler climate for a period of time. They returned to Sydney for a short time and then moved to New Zealand, where Roy Harrison was assigned to an evangelistic team in the North New Zealand Conference.20 Then in mid-1946 he accepted a position on the staff at Longburn Adventist College. 21 Roy taught English and Lorna taught home economics.

In 1948, the Harrisons were asked to move to Vailala in Papua where Roy Harrison served as school principal.22 They spent some time at Bisiatabu on the Sogeri Plateau outside Port Moresby, learning the Motu language before they arrived at Vailala.23 Harrison found that both his teaching skills and nursing skills were much needed in the new area. He visited the edges of the Kuka Kuka tribal lands in his travels.

The Harrisons were appointed to Manus Island where Roy Harrison served as district director for the region which included the Western Islands and the Admiralty Islands.24 In September of that year their first child, Ann, was born.25 They were allocated the mission vessel MV Light for their work and Harrison became captain of the ship. In early 1950, they visited the Western Islands to see if an Adventist church could be established there. They found the people ill and in great need. Harrison’s nursing skills were greatly appreciated, and the boat crew gave their own clothing to help the people.26 They succeeded in planting a church there.27

After furlough in 1951, the Harrisons moved to Rabaul, where once again Roy Harrison served as district director.28 He found a large Chinese community there and offered a Vacation Bible school for their children. Eventually, Harrison had the privilege of studying the Bible with a Chinese family and a number of the children were baptized.29 While in Rabaul, the Harrison’s second child, Peter, was born.30

From Rabaul, Harrison travelled throughout the island of New Britain from the Baining Mountains, Talasea, and Kombe, to the Duke of York Islands in the east, Bali in the west, and the Witu Islands to the north.31 He went wherever the people called for pastoral support. He used picture rolls and his nursing skills to open doors to new territory. Harrison was ordained to gospel ministry in Rabaul on March 26, 1955.32 At the beginning of 1956, he was appointed president of the New Britain Mission.33 During this time, he completed a ship’s masters certificate, enabling him to sail the 28-foot Day Dawn around the islands. He also completed a course in tropical medicine while on furlough in Australia.

In late 1956, Harrison suffered a fractured skull and broken cheek bone and nose when accosted on the island of Bali, West New Britain, by people angry that the Adventist Church was being established in their area. He was brought back to Rabaul and sent straight to Australia for medical treatment. The police arrested those responsible and they were taken to prison in Rabaul.34 When Harrison returned a few months later, the people were much more responsive and it was reported that there were soon many more people preparing for baptism.35 Some years later, Walter Scragg reported that:

It was my privilege to visit the village of Roka Brauka, where the assault on Pastor Harrison took place just about ten years ago. What a source of rejoicing to discover that in this village everyone now professes the faith of Jesus. Even the village nearby that initiated the assault is asking us to visit them. On the island of Bali (Unea), where this trouble occurred, new opportunities are ever present.36

At the end of 1957, Roy and Lorna Harrison were appointed to Honiara in the British Solomon Islands where Roy Harrison became the president of the Eastern Solomon Islands Mission in Honiara.37 The Vinaritokai was their first mission ship there and Harrison lost no time using the ship to travel throughout his assigned territory.38 While in Honiara, he travelled to Fiji to collect a new ship for the mission, which he sailed back to Honiara. It was a larger ship called the Lao Heni.39 This ship was particularly useful for ferrying supplies and building materials to the island of Malaita where the new Atoifi Adventist Hospital, was under construction.40

Meanwhile, with Roy Harrison travelling so much, Lorna Harrison maintained the daily radio schedule. She helped to keep things running smoothly at the mission and taught her two children correspondence lessons. She was very involved with the Red Cross and the British Colonial public servants who were working in Honiara at the time. She was instrumental in convincing the British government in Honiara to begin a school for the children of expatriates. It was named Woodford School. Roy Harrison was constantly running district meetings for the growing churches, opening new territory and gathering students for the school at Betikama.41

In 1965, the Harrisons were posted to Kavieng, New Ireland, Mandated Territory of New Guinea.42 Harrison had a passion in his role as president to open new territory. The Lelet Plateau, Damon Village, and Namatani and Tabar Islands were some of the new areas he pioneered during his time in New Ireland. He also cared for Mussau, Emira, New Hanover, Tench Island, and all of New Ireland.43 Harrison captained the mission ship Malalangi while at this posting.

Lorna Harrison felt the need of employment while in Kavieng and she became the office manager of the Government Education Department. She too had a passion to share her faith. She regularly took home many of the teachers and government workers for meals and as a result a number of them were baptized. One of them, Michael Browning, later married their daughter Ann.44 Michael and Ann were to also serve in pastoral ministry for many years45.

In 1972, Roy and Lorna Harrison moved to the Admiralty Islands north of the mainland of New Guinea and west of New Ireland where Harrison was the president of the Manus Mission.46 They were only there a matter of months before a reorganization of mission boundaries moved them to Madang on the mainland where Harrison became president of the Madang-Manus Mission.47 While working in Madang, Harrison visited the interior, travelling by boat to the headwaters of the May River and remote villages with which little contact had previously been made. Clothing and medical assistance were given. Picture rolls were used to convey the message of the gospel to the illiterate inhabitants.
