Madill Style Show Leaves Impact with Heartfelt Message
Baptist Home for Girls hosted its annual Back-to-School Style Show on Saturday, October 10. The community safely gathered at Emmanuel Baptist Church, Ardmore for the silent auction, bake sale and the Style Show. Due to a last minute change, a portion of the show was pre-recorded of the girls modeling their new clothes. Receiving new clothes, getting pampered and dressed up for this event is impactful for the girls who live on campus.
The show opened with a student prayer and two girls who recited the Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children (OHBC) creed. Speechless, the sign language worship group on campus, performed two worship songs.
The main event began as the girls modeled their clothes one-by-one as the emcee shared with the audience their favorite things, hobbies, hopes and dreams and fun facts about each of them. Baptist Home for Girls alumna, Chastity Debro, shared her heartfelt testimony of her life struggles and her time living at OBHC from 1998-2004. She spoke of how she is a by-product of the prayers and petitions of those who support the ministry and challenged others to continue investing in the lives of OBHC students. Lastly, the lone senior on campus has honored during her Senior Walk and presented with flowers while Campus Administrator Stephen Wiese shared some of his favorite memories during her time on campus.
The Back-to-School Style Show was a celebration of the achievements for each girl, as well as a call to action for those who provide hope and support for Baptist Home for Girls. Wiese stated, “In a circus of a year we’ve had, I want to thank everyone for all of their support and encouragement to our girls at the Style Show.”
