Tonight our family will be giving several presentations on what God is doing through the various ministries we are involved in. We will be sharing about all God has done and is doing at the Lee County Rec. Center, The Well, and in our FCA Huddles. We will even be sharing about taking to students to FCA camp this summer and FCA’s theme for camp this summer “All In.” Please be in prayer for Erin and I as we share. Pray for clarity of speech and that we will be able to effectively share our hearts for ministry and all the passions that God has given us for the people of Southeastern Kentucky. Pray also that God will speak to the hearts of the people we are sharing with and that possibly some might even be interested in coming to help us short term or perhaps long term. We are excited to see how God will use tonight’s presentations and treasure your prayers!
This week I am going to be a bit out of commission when it comes to keeping up with my blog. The good news is that nothing is wrong it’s just that Erin and I are busy sharing about what God is doing here with Kentucky Mountain Mission. Please pray for us this week that God will give us wisdom in what to say and also that through this time of sharing we will be able to recruit some much needed seasonal and full time staff! Thanks so much and I look forward to updating everyone next week!
As this post goes out at 7:00 am on Tuesday, December 31st, it will be close to 24 to 26 hours until I crawl back home and make my way into bed. The bad news is that I will be very very very tired, but the good news is that I will have survived another exciting New Year’s Eve at the Lee County Recreational Center. Tonight at 10pm we will start our annual Teen Lock-In outreach that runs until 6:00 am. We are expecting over 150 teens to come out and join us for a fun filled night of games, prizes, bowling, cosmic bowling, karaoke, movies, and much more. KMM missionary Scott Brandenburg will be sharing a devotion with everyone about half way through the night. The devotional time is the whole reason we have this event as we want to share the Gospel with every single person that attends. Please be in prayer for Scott as he gets ready to speak to our teens and pray for the the teens that they will be open to the Gospel and that many would choose to give their lives to Christ. Also, please be in prayer for our staff as we seek to build relationships with the students who attend to be able to share the Gospel with them, encourage them, connect them to local churches and Bible studies, and much more. Also if you are interested in being a chaperone we are in need of adult volunteers to help us with everything from watching the doors to helping play games with the students. Let us know if you are available to help! More than anything please pray that God will bless this outreach and lives will be changed for Him!
Last week I asked you to be praying for our Pre-Teen Lock-In outreach that was held this past Saturday night. We had a lower turn out with only 29 students in the 3rd-6th grades who attended. While the numbers were low, the students had a great time bowling, playing games, and watching a movie. As always our main point of this outreach is to share Jesus. My mom Dawn Owens did a great job sharing the devotion with the students and they were excellent listeners. Below is the video of her devotion if you would like to check it out. Thank you so much for praying and please continue to pray for the students, that the message of Christmas they heard will penetrate their hearts and they would give their lives to Christ!
We are getting ready here at the Rec Center for one of our favorite events a Pre-Teen Lock-In outreach this Saturday night. This is pretty much like a mini version of our all night lock-ins for 7th through 12th graders, only we shrink the format down to 4 hours. The shorter time period is nice to work with because you aren’t physically drained for a week, but the opportunity to share Jesus with these young students is just as awesome. Please be in prayer for our speaker as she prepares to share Jesus with our students. Pray for all our staff that we will have opportunities to interact and show the love of Christ to students. Pray that students will come with open hearts! Lastly, please pray that we have the needed chaperones to watch over our students!
