A fellow church is helping First Baptist Church of LaHarpe get itself ready to open its doors in a newly refurbished building.
Iola First Baptist has been hosting a group of mission workers from Forrest City, Ark., since last week. The group came to lend support in the establishment of a new house of worship for the congregation. They also have been spending time working with area children in this summer’s vacation bible school.
“We’re here to help reach out to people who need our support,” Virginia Taylor, mission member, said. “When we heard about this project we knew we needed to be up here.”
