Owens Family Ministry Update – January 4, 2015

Happy New Year!!!  It’s official we have survived another New Year’s Teen Lock-In at the Lee County Recreational Center.  Over 110 teens joined us to ring in the new  year!  Most importantly over 110 students hear a very clear Gospel message from our pastor, Terry Leap.  Pastor Leap shared with our students from the book of Ecclesiastes about how Solomon had sought for the meaning of life in so many things, but ultimately only found contentment in God.  It was great to hear Christ so clearly shared and our students really engaged in the message.  Below is the youtube clip of our devotion.

Throughout the night, our staff had a great chance to get to know the students and build relationships with them.  One student even won a free week to attend Youth Haven Bible Camp this upcoming summer!

Our family is doing well and starting to feel better in the New Year after the kids have had a few go arounds with various viruses.  Erin and the kids had a quick trip to Pennsylvania to visit with Erin’s brother’s family.  Maeven especially loves time to play with her cousins.

The next few weeks are going to be busy with various bowling league activities and working with our high school bowling team.  Please pray for opportunities to share the love of Christ with these bowlers and also safety as we travel with the bowling team.
