Honor Star

My oldest daughter recently completed the Assembly of God Missionettes Stars program. She started in 6th grade although the program is for 3rd-5th grade girls (our church didn't have enough girls for the older programs) and she went ahead and finished it out this year in 8th grade.

She had to complete 27 different units, memorizing 27 different Bible verses. She went before members of the church board to recite her 27 verses, doing 12 one time and 15 the next. Also, in order to earn her Honor Star, she had to read the New Testament, memorize the statement of faith, and complete the honor step in 9 of the 27 units. In all it took her 3 years to finish the program with half of the time being long distance since we moved.

Last Sunday we were invited to a special ceremony at our old church to crown the three girls that finished the program as honor stars. I am so proud of her for continuing to follow through with something that she had committed to finishing even though it would have been easy to quit when we moved away. What a beautiful young lady she is becoming!!
