Sunday August 24th we were visiting at Mountain View Baptist Church in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Pastor Mike Harrigan is the pastor of this ministry. The work was started just over six years ago by Brother Harrigan and is seeking to reach their community with the gospel. Our son Paul is currently working with the music program at Mt. View.
During the service on Sunday Pastor dedicated our son Paul and his wife Pauletta and their daughter Grace Marilyn to the Lord. Grace was born April 30, 2008. Immediately following the service the pastor baptized a young man in a steel tank in the alley behind the building.
Mountain View Baptist attendance is running in the 40s with a number of couples from the retirement community and some new families with children attending. Pastor Harrigan is working a full time job in addition to pastoring this work. Pray for a number of key requests for this baby church:
* A permanent and larger church facility
* Growth through adding committed families
* Full time support for Pastor Harrigan
