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.

At Drakenstein Maximum Bible study Walter, a long term resident and regular Bible study attendee, objected to another man sitting beside him, got up and sat by himself at the back.  Dawn reminded him that, as a follower of Jesus, you are to forgive anyone who offends you.   Walter returned to his seat.  Later in […]

Everything seems to be in place for Fraser’s trip to Lesotho next week.  One of the trainees is so keen that he has already started using the software.  Ryan Faber, an American missionary based in Zambia, has agreed to take responsibility for updating contact details for the NetACT community.  Dawn’s session at Maximum was again […]

As Fraser hasn’t been back in the UK since November 2017 we planned for him to go for a few weeks in December/January.  Due to expense, Dawn was going to remain in South Africa.  The Lord is very kind.  Some South Africans were concerned that we would be apart, so offered to buy a ticket […]

Give thanks that Fraser is home safely from the NetACT AGM in Johannesburg, where the need for partner colleges in the various countries to collaborate was emphasised, without expecting the central office to arrange everything, and for the joy in meeting colleagues face-to-face after only being able to video call over the past two years. […]

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 […]

Fraser may well get a lift to attend the NetACT AGM in Pretoria in late September, without having to persuade airport authorities to allow him to fly on a visa waiver.  Though his laptop needed a complete re-install of Windows for Stellenbosch University IT department, it only took him a day to do this and […]

The Paardeberg […]

Jacksons Update – August 3rd 2022 (excerpts)

Fraser had a very productive meeting at the Volmoed Retreat Centre on their new library system.  Things are going well for his re-formatting of the NETS (Namibia) library data to make it transferable from their old to a new system. The elderly parents of a man doing Restorative Justice follow up sessions at Paardeberg have […]

Fraser had a very successful trip to Namibia Evangelical Theological Seminary.  Pray for his moving them to new library catalogue and online learning management systems. The father of his host family there, Willem Steenkamp, graduated in theology in 2017 and is a businessman.  A tiny congregation in Windhoek wants him to become their minister.  He […]

The Restorative Justice course was allowed to continue at Voorberg even though the gang-related stabbing of an officer caused the rest of the prison to be shutdown.  The first day brought early insights to one man who told of abuse towards him and his family by the farmer they worked for and on whose land […]
