Speaking to this paper, the First Lady of the Convention, Madam Alice C. Reeves, said the goal is to prepare children for leadership roles so that they would be able to serve the church in the future.

According to her, the inclusiveness of children at the annual convention will give them (children) love and desire to always serve the church while growing up.

“I want to use this time to call on all Baptists to train their children because they are the future of the church in Liberia and beyond,” she urged.

“Just as our parents used to train us when we were still little children, we need to bring our children up in that same manner. We need to start bringing them up that way so that they can grow up in the faith. By that, the children will have the joy of serving Christ Jesus; our Lord,” she furthered.

Madam Reeves also pointed out that the idea is to familiarize the children with each other since they are all of the same doctrines.

“We want them to play together so that they can get to know each other from different churches. We want them to see themselves as one family.”

At the end of the training and recreational activity, Madam Reeves disclosed that the children will be provided with some educational materials as the new academic year commences in November.

“Few families and friends were contacted about this initiative and some of them responded well by sending in their contributions. It is based upon this that we were able to purchase few things for our children; we will now be able to give some educational packages because the new school year will be commencing November 1,” the Baptist First Lady among other things, added.
