Recently I received a letter from Mrs. Myrtice Owens, wife of Bro. Carlos Owens, retired missionaries living in Nashville. She has been diagnosed with Invasive ductal carcinoma
Stage 3. Surgery is tentatively scheduled for Feb. 1 for a total mastectomy at the
Baptist Hospital in Nashville. She asked for prayers from those that know her. Her daughter,
Deborah Owens-Hughes, who is a foreign missionary in Colombia, is coming home for
her surgery. This family has spoke at many local churches and prayer retreats about their mission work in the past and I know they would really appreciate our prayers.
