February-March 2023 Prayer Letter | PDF Version

EVANGELISM: We are privileged to have Gospel tracts available in six of the most common languages spoken in our part of Uganda. We encourage our church family to take them and to give them to people they meet throughout the week. But we also emphasize the importance of looking for the opportunities–doors God is opening–to share the Gospel through lengthier evangelistic conversations. We have been encouraged to hear the testimonies of several of our church members who have recently had such opportunities to share the Gospel and personally see others come to Christ!

DISCIPLESHIP: One of our requirements for church membership is the completion of nine foundational discipleship lessons. So far, everyone who has completed those nine lessons have continued with at least nine more discipleship lessons, and many are now able to disciple others. While we (Dan and Amie) do still lead some discipleship with new believers, more recently our focus has been on mentoring our faithful church members to grow as church leaders. Praise the Lord for over two dozen adults and teens who faithfully serve in various volunteer ministry positions each month!

FAMILIES: We believe that strong, godly families are necessary for a strong, godly church. We have times for men to pray together and the ladies to study the Bible together, but we have also been blessed to see more married couples attending church as a family. At our 2023 Marrieds’ Conference, we had 20 in attendance. The couples of the church have also organized Couples’ Fellowships in various homes and a Couples’ Formal Dinner at a nearby hotel. Each of these is an opportunity to discuss challenges of the home and to instill Biblical principles to strengthen our church families.

• Faithful, godly families willing to lead by serving at Faith Baptist Church.
• The successful start to the new Bible College semester. Dan is teaching a class to the men on Pastoral Counseling while Amie teaches the ladies a class on Counseling Women.
• An encouraging BIMI missionary conference with guest preacher, Dr. Scott Hanks.

• Patience, discernment as we await government approvals for our church building plans.
• Abbie as she prepares to serve on a medical missions team to Bishoftu, Ethiopia, in May.
• Our preparations for a short furlough this Summer/early Fall to take Emilie to college.


For Christ,

Dan, Amie, Abbie, Emilie and Eric Dwire
