so close…

fundraisingSo close, so very close.  That is where my wife and I are on our fundraising journey with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.  So very close to reaching our monthly support goal.

As most of you know we joined staff with FCA in the summer of 2016 and life has pretty much been a whirlwind since then.  We have definitely had some emotional ups and downs over the past two and half years with cancer, autism, celiac disease, car issues, and fundraising issues all hitting us over the course of that time.  In each of these situations though we have seen God work.  We have been amazed by his faithfulness as we have seen cancer taken away, therapies for autism, and great adjustment to the new lifestyle of being gluten free for Celiac disease.

Financially things have been tight due to our support level needing to be higher than it was for our previous ministry, more cost of living expenses with the move and kids getting older, medical issues, loss of some major support team members, and much more.  Throughout this time though, even though our support has not been at 100% we have seen over and over God work and provide for our family through the generosity of friends, family, and even faithful followers who we don’t even know.  We have truly been blessed and provided for.

As we approach the end of 2018 we are close than ever to reaching our monthly support goal of being fully funded.  We currently sit at only $290 a month from being at our support goal.  We are praying that in the next two months, God will provide the monthly or annual support partners needed to be fully funded.  Being fully funded means a weight would be taken off of us and we would be free to just go and serve.  Please join us in prayer that we would reach this goal by 2019.  Also, please pray about if you know anyone we can talk to about partnering with us that you could connect us to.  Lastly, pray about whether or not God would be leading you to join with us.  There is a link on the this blog where you can join our support team or feel free to contact me personally for more information.

Thank you for your prayers!

getting started and raising support…

fca_logo1Yesterday was interesting…for the first time in years I was no longer on staff with Kentucky Mountain Mission.  I am so thankful for all the years that God gave me with KMM and all the great things that I was able to see God Today is my first official day of being on staff with Fellowship of Christian Athletes.  I am excited to see what God is going to do in me an through me while working with FCA.

For my first month with FCA my main responsibility is trying to raise the rest of our needed financial support.  I am busy right now calling people, emailing, and messaging them to set up support appointments where I can share about our ministry.  I am excited to share about all the cool opportunities God is giving us with FCA and hopefully see others catch the vision God has given us too and join our Home support team.

If you are interested in finding out more about what my wife and I are going to be doing with FCA please let me know and we can set up a time to get together.  If you already know you want to join our support team you can start by going to http://www.my.fca.org …..Once there just look up my name Andy Owens and you can sign up to join our support team!  No matter what, please keep us in your prayers this month!
