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 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.

One of the NetAct partners, the Evangelical Reformed College in Angola, sends this report: “If the lockdown continues it will affect the 2020 harvest because people won’t be able to work in the fields.
