January 2018 Prayer Letter | PDF Version

ONE YEAR.It’s hard to believe that we have been in Wakiso for a year! Much has happened including settling into a new home and community and teaching in East Africa Baptist College. We had hoped to serve our fellow missionaries in our home, and God allowed us to host 78 different overnight guests in our home for a total of over 100 nights. Our big highlight of the year was the start of Faith Baptist Church. We have had new visitors all but one week since our first day and have enjoyed getting to know the group of believers God is assembling. Four are currently in discipleship lessons, and 2 have been baptized. It has been a blessing to see our children participate in various aspects of ministry such as assisting Amie with the Children’s Church, folding the bulletins, welcoming visitors, passing out tracts, and helping to clean and prepare the auditorium for services each week. New Year’s Eve brought 14 (plus our family) to our home to thank God for His blessings in 2017. Just before midnight, we went back to the church where we saw fireworks from 8 different locations around the city and then opened the new year with a time of prayer for our church, families, and country.

THIRTEEN YEARS.This month also marks thirteen years since we arrived in Uganda! Many of you have partnered with us through prayer and finances since our deputation days and have remained faithful all these years. We thank the Lord for you and look forward to more fruit that may abound to your account.

EIGHT MONTHS. In September, we will return to the US for an eight-month furlough. Our September dates are already full, but we do have some openings in the East from October 2018 to January 2019 and in the Midwest in February 2019. March-April 2019 are still open as well.

Pastors: If you would like us to come for your missions conference or for any another date during our furlough, please contact us. You may e-mail us at the address below. Alternatively, you may text or leave a voice-mail by calling (423) 521-5668, and we will gladly call you back from Uganda. (We are currently +8 hours from Eastern Time, +11 from Pacific Time, so please provide a time during the morning where you are that we can call you back.) We look forward to seeing you again and reporting on what God continues to do here in Uganda.

PRAISE THE LORD FOR

  • His faithfulness to direct and to provide for His work here in Uganda.
  • The two men who were baptized last month at Faith Baptist Church.

PLEASE PRAY FOR

  • Our ministry partners, the Tony Applegate Family, during their furlough.
  • The start of the new semester at East Africa Baptist College in February.
  • Our BIMI missionary annual conference January 23-24.

For Christ,

Dan, Amie, Abbie, Emilie and Eric Dwire
