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.

In Maximum this morning Howard stood before the class to express his thanks for the application study Bible he’d been given. He was in tears as he explained that four years of reading an unannotated Bible hadn’t brought him to the depth of understanding that a couple of weeks of using his study Bible had. […]

Dawn finally got her new visa, granted until the expiry of her current passport in […]

Jason asked for guidance about how to give his life to Jesus during the Bible study in Maximum this morning. Heavily involved in the prison gangs and the drugs that are readily available inside, he was transferred to a room with Christians (to his disgust), went through a time when he was technically dead in […]

Castle Street Church had a very encouraging evening Zoom session with Fraser and Dawn on March 7th. It’s a sign of real spiritual maturity when incarcerated people admit that they would rather be in prison and experience the relationship and life change which Jesus offers than be on the outside imprisoned by sin. Thank God […]

Pray for the prison officers, who have seen many of their colleagues fatally affected by covid19, to be strengthened in a difficult and dangerous environment. Many of the gang initiations involve stabbing an officer. The prisons are still closed to visitors so even the relief of seeing people from the outside is not available to […]
