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.
NetAct has no finance and hasn’t fulfilled its obligations to Hugenote College for months. Fraser met with the NetACT office manager and will have further meetings next month to discuss the future direction of NetACT. Much of his recent work has not been directly for NetAct. His library, online learning and IT experience are of […]
Things have been going more smoothly for Fraser as he finalised manuals he needed for providing training for a Seminary in Pretoria this week. He arrived there safely, and the training got off to a good start. Pray the week will be beneficial for all, for the rest of his time there, especially delivering training […]
The two colleges in Pretoria which Fraser is assisting with library cataloguing both need a lot of help. Issues with hardware on the ground are causing headaches and Fraser is limited in how much he can do remotely. Another college in Potchefstroom reached out to Fraser for help but hasn’t responded to his initial response. […]
Give thanks for the excitement and joy when a college wants to do something advanced, gets a long list of complicated instructions from Fraser, follows them perfectly and can provide resources to their students. (Namibia Evangelical Theological Seminary in Windhoek) Fraser has just started helping the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Pretoria. The librarian’s computer was […]
Fraser is developing good working relationships with the Lutheran Theological Seminary staff in Pretoria. The staff need to do more groundwork on the physical stock before the system can be further developed. He is also grateful for the quiet times when he can move forward with the work whose smooth running can make such a […]
A man in the Maximum Bible study who said he was a Jehovah’s Witness read the material Dawn gave him describing JW beliefs and what the Bible says, and he has concluded that the JWs are mistaken. Another man has requested a one-to-one with Dawn to discuss the material. Pray she will know how to […]
Fraser thankfully recovered all the old data after severe technical issues when upgrading some of the NetACT servers. Pray for the systems to be up and running for staff and students throughout Africa without much delay. He has now been invited to help another theological college in South Africa with their library set-up. The NetACT […]
Simxolele, a young man with a face full of prison tattoos, sometimes comes to Bible study in Maximum. Most weeks he’s evangelising other inmates and can’t make it. He’d been in and out of prison many, many times, always visited by his parents and thinking he always would be, until his mother told him that […]
Thank God that the taxi situation is quiet now and the taxi owners, Western Cape government and City of Cape Town authorities are talking to each other. Pray for a fair and lasting situation and no more violence or disruption. Pray that those caught up in the violence, looting and disruption and who are now […]
Fraser finishes the Mukhanyo library catalogue this week and next and trains them the week after. The NetACT journal editor wants another issue out at the same time. Pray he can organise his time appropriately. An amazing week of Restorative Justice at Drakenstein Medium A. Many men have made a connection for the first time […]
