Owens Family Ministry Update – January 25, 2016

IMG_4158Greetings from Snow Covered Kentucky!  It’s been a couple of weeks since our last update, and we wanted to let you know all that has been going on here, when we weren’t covered in 2 feet of snow that is!

So far we have been able to have 2 weeks of our After School Jr. Bowling League at the Rec Center and most of our kids from the spring have came back as well as several new faces.  Today, the kids are out of school for bad weather and so there is no bowling league today, but we are looking forward to having them back next week.

Our FCA Huddles have been hit and miss with school closings, but the time we have had with our students has been great.  We have been able to talk with the students about such things as choosing friends and words wisely, not giving into the labels that others put on us and finding our identity in Christ, and overall just daily growing deeper in their walks with Christ.  We are excited to see our students grow and ask you to keep them in your prayers.

Since our last update, Erin and I were blessed with the opportunity to attend an FCA Coach and Spouse Conference in Lexington, KY.  It was a great time away for us where we were definitely encouraged spiritually and encouraged to grow in our marriage.  We also loved the opportunity to see many old friends we have made in FCA and meet several new people.

IMG_4154This past weekend we were snowed in at home with conditions being to bad to open the Rec Center and also to do much of anything else.  So, we had a fun family time at home doing such things as sledding, movie nights, lots of snow cream, and even a family camp out in the basement.  It’s been a fun time that where we once again are reminded of how much God has blessed our family.

As always, thanks so much for your continued prayers and support!
