Additional Ministry Update – June 2018
Dear Friends and Supporters,
I just received some sad news that is impacting our ministry here in Argentina! Pastor Missionary Larry Owens’ wife has cancer, and it is spreading through her body. They just found out! Mrs. Owens had been sick for the last two months. They ran many test and it wasn’t till they did an MRI that they found that she had cancer in her lymph nodes and liver. This was a shock to Pastor Owens and the church here. Pastor Owens had to plan an emergency trip to Tijuana, Mexico to get some help and hopefully reverse/eliminate this cancer.
He needs our help and prayers. He is dearly loved here! The church is hurting for him and praying for a complete recovery for Mrs. Owens. Pastor Owens is a pioneer missionary, instrumental in helping start 17 different churches in the northern part of Argentina. He started a Bible college and a national pastors’ conference. He has been used of God greatly in my life and in the lives of many here in Argentina. We hurt for him and will stand by his side in this trying time.
He has many needs and is going to Mexico by faith, trusting God to supply his needs. He wants the best for his wife. The clinic in Tijuana, Mexico will cost $10,000 per week. The treatment in Tijuana is a four-week treatment. Insurance does not cover this because it is natural instead of traditional medicine. Please pray for Pastor Owens.
Pastor and Mrs. Owens arrived in Tijuana this past Sunday(10th of June) evening. She started treatment this past Monday(11th of June). They are in:
Oasis of Hope Hospital
Paseo Playas de Tijuana 19 / Terrazas
22504 Tijuana – Baja California – Mexico
Room phone number +1-619-690-8436
Please send cards to this address. They will be at this address until the 2nd or 9th of July.
Our church here in Argentina just gave the largest love offering in its history. We have very humble lower class people in our church. We have a few families who are professionals. We took up one love offering and $232 US was given. Then the unthinkable happened. The people throughout the week gave me money out of their deep love for Pastor and Mrs. Owens. After all the funds were counted, a total of $1,541 US was given. Praise the Lord! Would you prayerfully consider giving towards this need. I’m sure any get well cards or funds sent to them would be an encouragement. May the Lord bless you as you support them in prayer.
Here to serve,
Brian R. George and Family
