Regional Home Missionary Mark Sumpter reports that the church planting ministry in Wichita Falls, TX; Waco, TX, and New Braunfels, TX need prayer for strengthening and growth in membership classes and officer training. The ministry of prayer and counseling have been a vibrant feature for Mark Sumpter over the past two months. Some of it stems from the Covid-19 lockdown, but also from following up with people and their needs in the presbytery’s church planting efforts. He asks you to remember the Bible study in NE Houston in Crosby, TX. Hurricane Harvey Evangelist, Rev. Nick Lammé has been ministering to this group of 25-30 since last August. Their development looks promising to be a possible new church in the Houston area. Pray for an outreach ministry called Hope 2020 Seminar that, Lord willing, will take place in two months in SW Houston at Good Shepherd OPC Mission in Richmond, TX. This seminar will provide follow-up with one or more groups called a Hope Group— A Discussion and Support Group When Facing Discouragement and Suffering. The plan is to offer this discussion and support online. Last, pray for exploratory fields for new churches—pray for possibilities in El Paso, TX; Las Cruces, NM; SE Houston;North Central Arkansas; and College Station, TX. May the Lord provide wisdom, leading, and guidance!
