Owens Family Ministry Update – June 10, 2014

Recovering……very….very…very…slowly.  That’s how my body (Andy)  feels at the moment.  Last Friday night we held our annual End of the School Year Teen Lock-In Outreach at the Lee County Recreational Center.  Over 128 local teens joined us for a great night.  I had the privilege of sharing the devotion at this year’s lock-in with our teens.  Through the story of the Prodigal Son I shared wit the teens about how no matter what they have done they are valuable to God and He wants to have a personal relationship with them.  After the devotion, I had the opportunity to speak with one of our students.  While he didn’t make a decision, God was really working in his heart and mind.  Please join me in praying that we will have a chance to talk more again soon!

0016. Auction Fundraiser copyThis week things are very busy once again as we have two major events planned.  On Friday night we are having an auction fundraiser to help raise funds for the Rec Center.   We have had many items donated from local businesses and individuals in our community that we will be auctioning off as well as having a cookout!  If you are interested in donating something for the auction we would greatly appreciate it.  Also, we would love for you to attend.  Check out the attached flyer for more info!

On Saturday night, we are having a smaller scale lock-in from 5pm-9pm for elementary age kids.  I (Andy) will once again be giving a devotion, so please pray for me as I prepare and pray that our students will be receptive to God’s Word!  Also, we are in need of chaperones to come help us with this outreach!

Our kids are doing great.  They have been busy enjoying the summer weather and playing with puppies.  Both of the kids have been able to spend time at the Rec Center lately and have loved socializing with all the students and bowlers that have been there.

As always, thank you so much for your continued prayers and support.  Also, below is a video of my devotional from the End of School Teen Lock-In if you would like to watch.
