Jacksons

Fraser and Dawn lived and worked in Dingwall for many years, worshipping first in Castle Street and then in Dingwall Evangelical Church.  Fraser worked as librarian at the Highland Theological College.  They subsequently served God in Nigeria with Mission Africa where Fraser was Librarian at the Theological College of Northern Nigeria in Jos and Dawn worked in Church and Cross-Cultural projects in that city.

They hope to move soon to South Africa where Fraser will work freelance alongside NetAct to use his skills in the service of 40 theological colleges across the African continent while Dawn hopes to find openings to continue the kind of work she was doing in Nigeria.
