Mark Horn, church planting in Ocean Springs, MS, shared an update on recent events as they settle in. He wrote about how Ocean Springs is a fun beach town, filled with music, art, festivals but also a place with a lot of lost people searching for something more. He sums up the town in this way: “People here know that they are lost; they just don’t know that there is a Savior!”.
Mark and his wife Stephanie have already had opportunities to start getting to know people. They’ve been able to talk about pain, hardship, doubt as they connect with people. There have been lots of first conversations, and some are leading to second conversations. Pray with them that these can be part of a path and journey for Mark and Stephanie to love, listen, and invite these people in.
Pray that they would continue meeting people, and that God would raise up a church of fellow believers who are learning to embrace the brokenness that leads them to the gospel. And praise God that they have found a house they plan to close on by the end of the month. Pray that this home would be a place of refuge and hospitality.
