Two FBC Girls Honored

The Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) of the Richmond Baptist Association and the WMU of Virginia (WMUV) recently honored two First Baptist girls.

The Association named Lacey McRoberts (Left) “Outstanding GA (Girls in Action) of the year,” and Morella Harris runner up.

The girls were two of the five from throughout the commonwealth selected by WMUV to be a part of a new program called “Abigail Girls.” The program’s emphasis is mentoring and leadership development. They will attend an age-appropriate leadership development retreat and serve as ambassadors for missions throughout the year.

Lacy is a 5th grader and in her last year as a GA. Morella is a 4th grader.

To be chosen for the honors, the girls filled out applications and write essays about the meaning of missions in their lives.

Lacey wrote in her essay, “I love being a GA because yes, it’s lots of fun, but most importantly I know I am serving God and helping others. I love being active by doing things such as gymnastics and riding my bike, but when I’m serving God I am being active because I’m DOING missions.”

Morella wrote, “Doing work for God isn’t really work at all. It feels good to help the community and work with people who aren’t as fortunate as me.”

As GA of the Year, Lacey earned a week at CrossRoads Camp during the summer. Morella received a scholarship to help with her camp.

Lacey will make presentations at several WMU events. She already has presented to the ladies at their Spring RBA/WMU meeting.
