Missionary hears from wife in the Philippines
An Oconee County-based missionary breathed a sigh of relief today on hearing from his wife in the Philippines, for the first time since a typhoon hit. Billy Owens, missionary for Unity Baptist Church, married a Philippine. By phone this morning, she told him she is OK—though she barely escaped injury or death. Unity Baptist Church member Carol Ramey says the development is great news for church members. They will begin to raise money thru a hot dog and yard sale this Saturday to allow Mr. Owens to travel back to the Pacific nation with supplies.
