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.

Pray for everyone in South Africa affected by the covid virus because of new travel restrictions, especially by divisions caused by strong feelings over whether the vaccinations are a good or an evil.

(excerpts) 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 […]
The men in Drakenstein Maximum and Medium A are engaging with classes on emotional and spiritual maturity. Pray it will lead to a marked growth in their maturity. The classes are having a thought-provoking effect. There was a plan in Maximum to stab a warder in a gang initiation. A fellow inmate was stabbed instead. […]

The leadership […]
