Harrison earned his Sparks Vest!!!

Harrison is in AWANA for the first time this year. Anthony did the program growing up and LOVED it, so we are very excited that Harrison has the opportunity! He's been working very hard to earn his vest...and finished up what he needed to do tonight. Here are the steps he completed to earn his vest.

1. Attended two Sparks meetings in a row
2. Memorized his Motto - "My friend for Christ"
3. Memorized John 3:16
4. Memorized The Pledge of Allegiance
5. Memorized The AWANA Pledge
6. Memorized and sang the Sparks Song

We are SO proud of Harrison. Now he can start working on his booklet and earn some patches for his vest! :) He's having a blast and learning a lot about Jesus at the same time! Anthony is helping out so he gets the opportunity to see him having fun and growing in his Faith! :) Jackson cried tonight when they left, he wanted to go so bad. Next year, Jackson, you'll be a Cubbie! :)

How exciting!! We LOVED Awanas growing up and I know he's going to do great! He seems to do so well with positive reinforcement and rewards! Now onto those dreaded patches (my mom hated these because she is not a sewer!!) Way to go!

PS - did you remember the tune for the song?

Oh Beth, Aunt Vonda is sitting in Germany beaming from ear to ear. Our little Harrison is growing up to be such a fine young man who wants to please the Lord and that is such an answer to prayer. Love you -V

Oh my goodness! The memories! Mentally I'm singing the Sparks song...I'm sure it hasn't changed even after all these years. I still remember the Bible verses I learned when I was in AWANA. You're lucky you have that at your church there. He'll have great memories when he grows up! Do they still do the AWANA Olympics? Now that was fun! :) Congrats on the vest - that really is an accomplishment!
