Jacksons Update – August 3rd 2022 (excerpts)

Fraser had a very productive meeting at the Volmoed Retreat Centre on their new library system.  Things are going well for his re-formatting of the NETS (Namibia) library data to make it transferable from their old to a new system.

The elderly parents of a man doing Restorative Justice follow up sessions at Paardeberg have received a phone call saying their son would be killed in prison if they didn’t pay money.  Pray that the culprits would be found.

It would make things easier if Dawn had a South Africa ID number.   With our volunteer rather than worker visas, there appears to be no possibility of getting one.

Ten years ago, on August 2nd, 2012, we left the UK to go to Nigeria and start a life serving God overseas.  There have been plenty of ups and downs, joys and sorrows, fun and danger and a lot of hard work, but throughout it all God has been faithful.  

When anyone asks, “How long will you stay overseas?” our reply is always, “Until God moves us on.”

Thank God for the way he’s watched over James and Ruth through a somewhat unconventional childhood.   James is praying for a job.   Ruth has been accepted onto the 2-year apprenticeship at the Tron church, Glasgow.
