Hey everyone, Erin and I hope that this post finds you doing well. We are writing this post because we need your help. Actually we need your email addresses!
After much prayer and conversation, we have decided to switch up how we do our Owens Family Update newsletters. Some of you all have probably been getting our newsletters over the years via snail mail. We do our best to try and get these letters out to you all so that everyone who partners with us whether in support and/or prayers can know how God is working as we minister with FCA and how our family is doing. Our switch up is that we are now going to be doing less paper newsletters (1 or 2 a year) and more email newsletters (at least 1 a month).
There are two reasons we are making this change. First of all, we want to be able to keep you informed more regularly. We desperately need your prayers and also want you to be able to celebrate our victories with us. Email newsletters allow us to get you information much much quicker.
Secondly, we feel that this is the best way for us to be a good steward of the money that you are supporting us with. Currently one newsletter costs us around $150 or more a mailing. FCA has blessed us with a great newsletter program that looks very professional and only costs around $7 a month. This savings is huge and allows more of your support to go to ministering to our students and coaches!
We hope that you understand this decision and will help us out by sending us your email address. On the top right of this page there is a link button you can click to sign up. I promise that you will not get spammed! Please sign up soon, we hope to get out a newsletter in the next few days! Thanks again for your understanding, thoughts and prayers!
Erin and I decided to start a blog together where we can keep all our family, friends, and faithful prayer and support partners updated on what God is doing in ministry with KMM. We realize we send out prayer letters, but sometimes there are urgent needs or prayer requests that we would like to get to you sooner. Also, we wanted a way where you could be even more of a part of ministry here. So please check in regularly and see what all is going on!
Andy and Erin Owens
