Sunday 5th December - Dawn Jackson
We warmly welcome Dawn back to the UK and EBC. We have supported Dawn and her husband Fraser in the work they were called to in South Africa through prayer and financial giving for a number of years. It's the family of God working in partnership together to promote his kingdom, each doing what they can. Dawn is involved in community development and relationship building which includes the Hope Prison Ministry (www.hopeprisonministry.org; www.facebook.com/hopeprisonministry). They run Restorative Justice courses and have seen many lives turned around on meeting Jesus and some are now working for Hope Prison Ministries, taking part in Restorative Justice courses, sharing testimony so others can escape their darkness too. Fraser is a library consultant working with NetAct (www.netact.christians.co.za), an organisation which helps theological colleges in developing Africa. They had decided it was time to develop their library side and were extremely keen for Fraser to run the programme. A huge number of students are being helped by having access to better resources, which in turn strengthens the church and helps protect it from false teaching. Fraser's work is making a huge difference to the quality of theological education and training throughout Africa via the internet portal which provides, among other things, access to ebooks and journals, links to theological websites, audio-visual material, the library catalogues of all partner organisations, reading lists for partners to compare practice, lists of African theological publishers and downloadable resources. Many students in African colleges have had their education disrupted by poverty, violence, unrest and lack of qualified teachers. NetAct's library and training portal helps fill some of the gaps and enable to students to achieve more of their potential.
