Madill Girls on the Run Finish Second Season

The Madill Elementary Girls on the Run Team will finish its second season on Friday, June 1, with the GOTR 5K & Glow Run in Ardmore. Third through fifth grade girls participating in the program spent 12 weeks learning how to effectively manage emotions, friendships, and adolescence while building physical stamina and training for a 5K. The 24-member team of girls enjoyed impacting their community by helping the school cleanup and replanting a flower bed on site. They also showed encouragement to the teachers by making special decorated pens that accompanied handwritten thank you notes. Because this after-school program has been such a huge success, Madill Elementary School has been chosen to be host to a brand new program for girls going into the third, fourth, or fifth grade. Camp GOTR will be held the week of June 25-29 for all rising third through fifth grade girls in Marshall County.

Furthering the Ministry in Madill

Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children (OBHC) dedicated the new Fellers/Brown residential cottage at Baptist Homes for Girls (BHG) in Madill Thursday, May 11. Nearly 150 people attended the dedication.

“It is going to provide for us a ministry tool we have needed for a long time,” Stephen Wiese, BHG administrator said. “The Lord has led us to finish this and continue in this ministry, with a whole life-cycle of children coming through our campus, from beginning school age, through college.”

Highlighting the evening were former OBHC President Tony Kennedy and former BHG Administrator Art Brown, as they shared the history and leap of faith taken to grow and expand the ministry of BHG in Madill.
