June-July 2017 Prayer Letter | PDF Version

NEW CONSTRUCTION. In May, we had the opportunity to assist the members of Rubaga Baptist Church (in the southern part of the Kampala metro area) renovate their newly purchased church building. As Dan and some of the men broke down the interior walls of the building (which was being constructed as a house by the previous owner), Amie and the kids helped break the rubble (of local bricks and mortar) into smaller chunks that were then spread as “pavement” in front of the building. A few weeks later, Dan also assisted with a new gypsum-board ceiling at Gospel Light Baptist Church where he teaches in the Bible College.

NEW RECORD. In June, the gospel tracts we had set aside to give out to those attending Uganda’s annual Martyrs’ Day celebrations were very well received and went much faster than we had imagined. We found out later that a record attendance of nearly 3 million visitors had come for the weekend to remember the Catholic and Anglican martyrs from the late 1800s. We are especially thankful for Fellowship Tract League who printed and shipped the tracts we distributed. As a family, we gave out nearly 2,000 tracts and found fewer than 20 dropped on the ground!

NEW CREATION. We are continuing in discipleship lessons and weekly prayer times with those God has brought to us here in the Namugongo area of Wakiso, Uganda. It is exciting to see new believers realize who we are in Christ as the children of God and the new creation He has made us to be! Please keep praying as these individual ministries continue and as we seek a place to meet together and begin weekly meetings.

PRAISE THE LORD FOR

  • People prepared for His Word and excited about a new church plant.
  • Beginning pre-marital counseling with believers we have been discipling.
  • Amie’s safety to & from the USA to assist her parents during her mom’s recent surgery.

PLEASE PRAY FOR

  • The new Bible College term at the end of July. Dan will be teaching a class on Biblical Counseling.
  • The sale of the radio land in Soroti so that other radio expansions can be funded.
  • Wisdom to know God’s time & place to begin meeting together for weekly services.

For Christ,

Dan, Amie, Abbie, Emilie and Eric Dwire
