Jacksons Update – August 31st 2022 (excerpts)

Fraser may well get a lift to attend the NetACT AGM in Pretoria in late September, without having to persuade airport authorities to allow him to fly on a visa waiver. 

Though his laptop needed a complete re-install of Windows for Stellenbosch University IT department, it only took him a day to do this and be back up and running again.

He hopes to launch a new simplified version of the library resources portal at the AGM and needs to get the last technical issues sorted by then.  He has also been asked to do more data cleaning for the new Volmoed Retreat Centre library catalogue.  Pray he can schedule his time appropriately.

Dawn has completed the follow up of the March Allandale Restorative Justice programme.  The Paardeberg and Obiqua men have engaged with the process and have already started changing their behaviour and attitudes. 

Dawn has met two Drakenstein Medium A parolees at Hylma’s church in Cape Town.  Thank God both men are eager to continue in God’s way.  Pray that they’ll find jobs.

She now has a fluey bug, maybe picked up at Drakenstein where several inmates have had it. Pray for a swift and complete recovery and patience in the meantime.

The students say the Explore course run by the George Whitfield College in Muizenberg – such a good foundation – really helps them understand the Bible and Christian faith.  Pray those taking the exam will do themselves justice as they’ve worked hard on the material.
