Jacksons Update – November 17th 2021


Pray for the men at Drakenstein.  The questions Hylma dealt with on false beliefs about emotions provoked a lot of discussion.  May the Holy Spirit keep the men individually turning to the Bible for help to cope with different emotions.

Pray for more funding and suitable volunteers for Hope Prison Ministry’s Restorative Justice courses.  We haven’t been able to run as many as we would like.

Give thanks for the youngsters who gather at Zebulun church after school instead of getting involved with gangs.

NetACT have a new research project for 2022 – “What do NetACT member institutions have but still need in computer literacy?” which entails site visits to every partner for on-the-ground research.  (Fraser will be doing some, but not all).  Pray that partners will be open and honest.  Pray for strength and peace for Fraser as he tries to finish up a few things for NetACT before the Christmas break.

Continue to pray for our church situation in Wellington – for wisdom, clarity, courage, demonstrable love and a time of peace-making which takes effort but has healthier and more lasting results, both for the individual and the congregation.

Give thanks that Dawn’s journey went smoothly and she’s now safely in England.

Student Finance have finally sorted out Ruth’s loan application and everything’s in order now.
