Yes, we really are moving to Africa! It’s quite comical how many times we’ve been asked that question in the past few weeks. We have officially moved out of our home, are packed for Africa & are living out of our suitcases. We have our passports and we have submitted all of the paperwork for our visas. It’s hard to believe that we are getting so close to leaving. Lord willing, we would like to be on the plane prior to August 27th before the flight prices significantly increase. We still are in need of $1200 per month in monthly sponsors to get us to 80% and enable us to purchase our flights. We are currently at 62% of our monthly goal, one step closer to being right in the center of God’s calling-loving on the orphans & vulnerable children in Swaziland & discipling young men & women of God. Our monthly support covers our housing, food, gasoline, and other living and ministry expenses. We need you! If you have been considering partnering with us, now is the time. You can donate online by clicking on the donations page on our blog: owensNafrica.com. You can also send your donation in the mail to Children’s Cup. If you would prefer to send a one-time gift, we will divide it over the 24 months. God is continuing to build a support team around us and we are in awe of His goodness and so incredibly humbled! We know that God has more amazing things in store in the weeks to come. Will you allow Him to use you to fulfill His calling on our lives? As we do what God has called us to do, we will have to walk in faith. The Lord has ordained it that we will not walk alone in faith. We will walk together with friends to accomplish His will. Please pray about helping us close the gap in reaching our goal. Thank you for your friendship and partnership!
In His Hands,
