Dear Praying Friends,
The Scriptures tell us in Ephesians 6:18-19, “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,” Thank you for prayers, support and encouragement as we travel on deputation. Please pray that more churches would partner and commit to support this ministry of making known the gospel in Argentina.
We are praising the Lord for a wonderful, full month of meetings in Illinois. We were able to present in the church where a former classmate of mine from Bible college is pastoring now. It was good to reconnect and see how the Lord is blessing the work there in Muncie,IN. We also got to share our burden to Argentina in a church in Illinois where David attended high school for a time. It was a sweet time of fellowship. This month we had our very first meeting in Ohio and thank the Lord for the extra blessing that they were to our family. Please pray for us as we will be flying to Arizona for a missions conference. Also, we will be presenting the work in Michigan, Illinois and Alabama. We pray to be a blessing in every service that we have the opportunity to participate in.
It was a privilege for me to be ordained to the gospel ministry the last weekend of September. On Saturday, there was a time of questioning and on Sunday, the ordination service. I’d like to thank all the pastors and laymen from the Central Illinois area that attended and invested their time in my life. It was extra special as both of our parents were on the council and had a part in the service on Sunday. There was also a baby dedication for Ingrid Giselle as we committed her to the Lord. A special thank you to our sending church, East Park, for all the effort and work they put into both services. It was a very memorable service for our family.
Around the same time, we ran into some issues with our vehicle. As we were pulling out of a parking lot, the right axle of our Jeep fell down. We thank the Lord that we were not on the highway and for His protection over us. We’d also like to praise Him for providing all the funds to fix the Jeep. The Lord continues to go before us and take care of all our needs. Thank you for your prayers!
David, Hannah & Ingrid Owens
