Jacksons Update – November 3rd 2021


With 20 minutes’ notice, Dawn was asked to start a teenager group at Zebulun church, in an area where you can see piles of stones which gangs throw at each other before shooting when they gather to fight.  Some youngsters want to study the Bible so pray Dawn can pitch it at the right level.

Jessica, Dawn’s age, lives behind the church with a great heart for youth. Pray for her protection from outside threats.

A Muslim inmate recently saw the pastor in Medium A chapel. Two Bible study regulars prayed with him. He was led there by God, has renounced Islam and his intention to stab someone. He has given his heart to Jesus who alone can help him.  He feels very different now he’s committed.

It was great to be in Maximum this morning and experience the wholehearted singing.  God’s joy is not dependent on outward circumstances but is deep in the heart.

Fraser has been advising 2 South African non-NetACT Christian institutions on online library systems.   Give thanks that the Stellenbosch University IT helpdesk was able to fix a major issue with his laptop remotely.  He’s currently working on short videos about his work for Dawn to use in the UK – way outside his comfort zone! Pray that the films will give a feeling of the contribution he’s making.

Dawn will be in the Dingwall area from December 13-20 with still space for encounters.  Let us know if you want one.
