August 2023 Prayer Letter | PDF Version

SUMMER MINISTRY: The first two months of our furlough we had the privilege of staying in a mission house just outside Chattanooga. This provided an ideal location for our daughters to be able to work a summer job while positioning us nearby Dan's parents, several partner churches, and the BIMI home office. Most weekends we were able to minister through teaching Sunday School or preaching while updating supporters on the great things God is doing in Uganda. During the week, Abbie and Emilie were able to work at a local Chick-fil-A, and Dan, Amie, and Eric had opportunities to volunteer at the BIMI campus through cleaning and lawn care. We also enjoyed BIMI's Enrichment Week where we made new friendships with fellow missionaries, were challenged and encouraged through preaching, and refreshed for continued ministry.

FALL MEETINGS: In mid-August, we took Abbie and Emilie to college. Because of dual-enrollment classes during high school, Abbie has only three semesters left in her Kinesiology degree, and Emilie, though a new student, has six more semesters to go in her Biblical Counseling program. The day they started classes, we traveled to Texas and on to Louisiana for meetings in local churches. In September we will be with Amie's parents in Pennsylvania during the week and in meetings every Sunday in PA and neighboring states. (Area pastors: we do still have some Wednesday nights open if you would like us to come and update your church.) We'll wind up our U.S. meetings in mid-October and then fly back to Uganda a week later on October 24. We do appreciate your prayers for us as we travel and prepare to return to Uganda.

• The hours that Abbie and Emilie could work this summer to earn money for college.
• Unity and cooperation of our FBC Family during recent needs within the church body.
• The Tony Applegate Family and FBC Servant Leadership in leading our church during our absence.

• Safety as we travel on furlough.
• Abbie and Emilie as they begin a new school year at college.
• The approval of building permits for Faith Baptist Church.


For Christ,

Dan, Amie, Abbie, Emilie and Eric Dwire
