I just realized in my newsletter that I left out a huge Praise to share with you!!! At FCA Leadership Camp 30 students made first time decisions for Christ!!! Please be praying for them as they grow in their faith and for the FCA staff and volunteers that follow up with them.
Also, we wanted to share with you the video of our 2017 FCA Leadership Camp. This video will show you some of the great lessons that were taught in chapel and also a lot of the fun our students had. We hope you enjoy!
Well, we are back from another great year at FCA Leadership Camp. I have a lot to share with you, but to be honest I am needing to catch my breath for a little bit before I do. However God is great and we had an awesome time seeing Him work in the lives of our students. So I wanted to share some videos of our students praising God and even one of our dear sweet Maeven singing with the younger kids!
It’s been a little bit since our last update, and we do apologize. These past few weeks have been a very busy season of ministry and transition for our family. Since our last update, we have wrapped up another school year of FCA Huddles at Lee County High School and Middle School. We were blessed to have great students in both of these huddles this year and it was a privilege to be able to share with them from God’s Word and to see them grow in their relationship with Him.
We also wrapped up our After School Jr. Bowling League at the Lee County Recreational Center. In our next to last week of this league we were blessed to see one of our students accept Christ as his personal Savior! And the awesome thing is that it started with another student witnessing to him on the bowling bus! Our kids Maeven and Judah, both participated in this outreach and had a great time bowling and meeting the other kids! They also loved getting bowling trophies.
We are still in the middle of trying to close on the sale of our current home and then close on our new home in Richmond, KY. The good news is, that it looks like we will be able to close the first week of June here and hopefully close on the new home and move shortly thereafter. Please keep praying for us during this stressful time that things will happen smoothly and quickly. Right now with no set dates we can’t schedule movers, fencing, and several other things we have to do to move. Also, moving is getting closer to the date when I (Andy) will be taking students from Lee County to FCA Leadership Camp. The good news is we have a great God who is in control of everything and already knows how everything will work out!
We would also like your to be praying for us during this time as we are also scheduling support appointments with family and friends. We are currently about half way to our support goal. Please pray that we will be able to secure the rest of our support before we start with FCA in August. If you would would be open to hearing more about our new ministry with FCA, please let me know, I would love the opportunity to share with you. If you would like to join our monthly support team or send a gift, you can send support in one of two different ways. The first way is to send a check made out to FCA to:
Central KY FCA
2201 Regency Road
Lexington, KY 40503
In the memo of the check just make a note that your gift is for support of Andy Owens
The second way to help support our family is by going to www.my.fca.org
When you get to this website just click on the left side of the page where it says search for staff and areas. Then in the search, type Andy Owens. This will lead you to our support page where you can click on and begin to set up online giving. You will be able to create an account with FCA where you can set up either manual or automatic giving, whichever you would like to do. If you have any questions about anything please just let me know! Also, if you are currently sending support for our family to KMM thank you for your faithfulness and please continue to send your support to KMM through the month of July.
The next couple of months are going to be a busy, high stress, whirlwind of a time. However, we know God is going to do great things during this time and can’t wait to see what He has in store for our family. Please keep praying faithfully for us!
