Owens Family Ministry Update – June 2, 2014

IMG_2721Greetings from Beattyville.  As I write this I (Andy) am busy recovering from our Annual Rec Center Golf Scramble Fundraiser.  While I am tired, recovery might be a little stretching the truth as we had a great event that God blessed.  We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day for our golfers and all those who came to our cook out.  God blessed with very generous golfers and sponsors for this year’s event, as well as many who gave of their time to come help out.  Our number of golfers was a little lower this year, due to having to reschedule on a day where there were many thing happening, but God still blessed and we are thankful!

We are also very thankful to report on our fundraising for our FCA Leadership students to go to FCA Leadership Camp later this month.  God has truly blessed and we have received enough funding through very generous family and friends so that all students and sponsors can go to camp!  We have also been blessed working with our student in a weekly Bible study where we have been challenging them to be a true follower of Christ and not just a fan!  The students have responded really well and we are so blessed by their growth.

This week we are gearing up for our annual end of School Teen Lock-In outreach on Friday night.  We are expecting around 150 teens to come to this event.  Please be praying that we will have plenty of chaperones, pray for our speaker as they prepare to talk to the students, pray that our staff will have great interaction that leads to the Gospel, and finally pray that students will decide to commit to trust in Christ!

Our family is doing great.  We were blessed to spend Memorial Day weekend in Tennessee with Andy’s grandparents, mom and dad, sister,  and aunts and uncles.  The kids loved spending time with everyone and especially enjoyed getting to go to the aquarium.  Both kids are also getting excited for camp at YHBC to start in about 2 weeks.

As always thank you so much for your continued prayers and support!
