Planting & Growing

We are excited to give an update of our new church plant in South Africa.  The church has been holding home groups for quite some months now.  We have now entered into the Tent Meeting phase which Pastor Mbongeni has just begun.  We are anticipating a move of God in this new area and are thrilled to be venturing into South Africa where the need is so great.

Things are going very well in Swaziland.  Our newest church in Bulandzeni is now almost completed and has a kitchen and shelter for the preschool.  The community is beyond thrilled at the progress and growth of this ministry that serves such a large area of people.  Where there was once simply a field of weeds, now is home to a large community church, a well with clean running water, an outside covered kitchen to feed children daily, a preschool running strong and a people group who love the Lord, are growing and have a desire to bring others to Christ!

The orphan home is doing well and we want to thank each and every one of you who have faithfully supported a child over the years.  Because of your sacrifice, these children are attending school and succeeding above expectations.  They are healthy in body and in their relationship with Christ.  They are protected and safe and loved.  If you would like correspondence with your sponsored child, please email us at owensnafrica@gmail.com and we will be sure to have a letter sent to you upon our return in November.  Also, if you have a desire to sponsor a child, please send us an email so that we can help you make an eternal impact on a child!

We are heading back for a trip in November and are anxious to meet with our ministry partners, visit each site and breathe life into all that is happening in Swaziland.

We say it often, but we honestly cannot thank you enough for your continued prayer and support for the ministry in Africa. Please know that 100% of every financial gift given goes directly to the ministry in Africa. Without our supporters, we would not be starting another church plant, daily operating two feeding sites, supporting our pastors or caring for an orphan home of 20 vulnerable children. THANK YOU for giving to the least of these! Your sacrifice does not go unnoticed by us or by your heavenly Father!

In His Service, Chad, Wendy, Brielle & Caden
