WEEK OF PRAYER: Hope shining in East St. Louis

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. -- East St. Louis is the home -- and mission field -- of Kempton and Caryn Turner. A native of East St. Louis, Ill., Kempton Turner grew up on the streets where he now serves as a church planting missionary and pastor of City of Joy Fellowship. The church was launched on Sept. 18, 2016, with one mission: restoring hope to the city through Jesus Christ. It currently rents space at the local Jackie Joyner-Kersee Center. "Because I was raised here, I've got a real heart for the people," Turner said. "It's a small city. It's a dangerous, poor place, 85 percent fatherlessness. The houses, the buildings and the roads show the desperate place that East St. Louis is in. The people know struggle."
