Mark assists sessions and oversight committees for three mission works in the presbytery and he is helping to guide one developing group which shows promise to be a new mission work in 2020. He visited Marion County, Arkansas (North Central Arkansas) recently where there’s a reformed witness of a Bible study; this is a small group expressing interest in the OPC. Other inquiries have come from SW Arkansas; the Houston, TX metro area; and the Gulf Coast of Texas. Pray for Mark’s ability to be a resource and encouragement alongside the sessions and those doing the work of church planting. Pray for God’s marvelous working and good pleasure to cultivate a culture of outreach and evangelism within the Presbytery—specifically, 1) pray for heart-grabbing conviction regarding God’s power of the gospel to spiritually transform lives, 2) pray for the soil of the hearts of lost people to be plowed up and turned for receptivity to conversations of testimony, witness, and evangelism, and 3) pray for growth in the ability to scatter the seed of the Word through in-home or personal evangelistic Bible studies.
