Fraser & Dawn Jackson
Using their expertise as a librarian and in editorial work, Fraser and Dawn are serving and strengthening the church in Nigeria.
Fraser began to take an interest in missions, particularly in Wycliffe Bible Translators, in his students days at Glasgow University. He was brought up in a Christian home, and came to faith in Christ as a teenager. After finishing a post–graduate diploma in Librarianship, he worked briefly for Blythswood Care, a Christian social care charity, before joining Wycliffe for their short term programme.
Dawn was brought up in a small village in Lincolnshire and started to follow Jesus when she was about 10 years old. Her Christian life deepened and developed while she was studying Classics and English at Oxford. After university she also joined Wycliffe’s short term graduate programme, where she met Fraser. Dawn then went to serve in Papua New Guinea for a year, while Fraser went to Kenya and worked on the Endo–Marakwet Bible translation project.
After their marriage on their return to the UK, Fraser and Dawn lived in the village on the west coast of Scotland, where Fraser once more worked for Blythswood and Dawn did some proofreading for Christian Focus Publications. In 1997 they moved to Dingwall, and shortly afterwards Fraser started work in the library and in IT at the Highland Theological College.
In the summer of 2010 they both felt God calling them to Africa. The have been in Nigeria with Mission Africa since July 2012.
They have two children, James and Ruth.
Fraser and Dawn are based at TCNN theological college in Jos, where Fraser is one of the librarians. Dawn is involved in the work of ACTS literature ministry and BRICC – Building Relationships in the City Centre, in Jos.
