Jacksons Update – September 14th 2022 (excerpts)

Continue to pray for our visa renewal situation.  The current extension expires September 30th.  Please pray the government announces a further extension so we don’t have to arrange flights out of the country at 24 hours’ notice.

Give thanks that the final transfer of live library circulation data to Namibia Evangelical Theological Seminary’s new library catalogue went smoothly.  They are now using their new system and start using an online learning system soon.

Fraser is arranging everything needed to Zoom and live-stream the NetACT AGM in Johannesburg at the end of the month with participants coming from many countries.  Please pray for everything to fall into place for this.

A last minute Restorative Justice course at Drakenstein medium A has been arranged for the end of the month (when Fraser is away at the AGM).  Pray for enough table facilitators as over 30 men have expressed a desire to participate and for the right men to sign up.  Pray for the ministry team – many unpleasant or disruptive things happen to team members and families around the RJ week.

Dawn made it into Drakenstein prison today.  Khanye is having to face hard choices about his involvement in the prison gangs and his desire to follow Jesus.  He sees how they are mutually exclusive.  Pray he would be allowed to move into a room where there’ll be someone willing to help him read the Bible as his eyesight is badly damaged.

Pray for a full recovery to health and strength for Dawn and continued good health for Fraser.
