August 2018 Prayer Letter | PDF Version

TEACH ALL NATIONS: The fall semester at East Africa Baptist College began on July 24 with students from Uganda, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Enrollment has grown each week, and Dan has nearly 30 students in his class on Romans. He will teach the first half of the semester, then another missionary will teach the second half while we are on furlough. He also recently taught two sessions at a preachers conference with over 60 church leaders in attendance.

BAPTIZE: Because we do not have a baptistry at Faith Baptist Church, we reserve a nearby swimming pool that we are able to use affordably. The end of June was our second baptism service in which two young men were baptized. So far one more gentleman is planning to be baptized at the end of August.

TEACH ALL THINGS: Two more young men and a couple have completed an 18-lesson discipleship course, and two have also completed the training for Disciplers. There are now four Ugandan men in the church who are trained and ready to disciple others. Some have already started lessons with new believers, and others are preparing to begin in the next two weeks. We also taught through a series of lessons focusing on the identity, acceptance, and freedom that Christ has already given to all believers. We were very encouraged by the testimonies throughout the five weeks of lessons.

A GREAT COMMISSION: As we prepare to celebrate the one year anniversary of Faith Baptist Church (September 2), we are reminded of the many GREAT things that God continues to do here in Namugongo, Wakiso, Uganda. We are privileged to represent you through your prayerful partnership in reaching Uganda (as well as those in Uganda from other countries) with the Gospel. We look forward to connecting with many of you during our furlough (September 15, 2018, to May 2019).

PRAISE THE LORD FOR

  • Jim & Carla Junge who will be leading Faith Baptist Church as we start furlough.
  • One Year Anniversary of Faith Baptist Church and those who faithfully attend.

PLEASE PRAY FOR

  • Wisdom as we make final preparations for our furlough.
  • Church Covenant Service on First Anniversary of Faith Baptist Church (Sept. 2).

For Christ,

Dan, Amie, Abbie, Emilie and Eric Dwire
