2: Rev. Renee Jones | Praise the Lord Daughters of Esther! As we culminate this Season, I congratulate you on a job well done! I am grateful for the time we shared learning, growing, developing and exploring. "You're Designed to Shine"! This is your moment. Today marks the beginning of all God has prepared for you. Continue to grown and develop into who He has created you to be. Jehovah has fashioned and formed you for greatness! Always, "Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing." Isaiah 40:26 NIV Our God has given a name to each of His stars, yet, you are created in His very image and likeness. You are the epitome of His "STARS"strong, talented, ambitious, righteous, sisters; gifted, unique, fearfully and wonderfully made. Do not allow the world to dictate your destiny! God has given you an assignment and He will walk with you to bring it to completion. Trust in the Lord; He will protect, guard and guide you in all of your ways. I pray God's blessings on each of you. Shine! In His Service, Rev. Renee D. Jones Minister to Children & Daughters of Esther Rites of Passage Reid Temple AME Church North Campus
3: Stephanie M. Cummings | "Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6 To God 's Shining STARS (Strong, Talented, Ambitious, Righteous Sisters). What a glorious day and sincere congratulations to all of our 14 young ladies on your day of Crossover! On behalf of the entire Daughters of Esther Rites of Passage ministry leaders, we are absolutely delighted and ecstatic for you. It's been such a blessing watching you transition and blossom with each new experience. From your first session on Communication/Public Speaking to how you've prepared wonderfully for Crossover. My prayer is the new friendships you have forged will last a lifetime and you continue to support one another. Please know there will be sprinkled moments in this life's journey where you will reflect on some or perhaps many of your Rites of Passage sessions as a lesson learned. Our goal was to ensure you a firm biblical foundation based on God's teachings and to always strive for excellence in the process. We wish you continued success with your ongoing transition into womanhood and know we are all here to help carry you through. We love you and stay close to Christ. With a Servant's Heart, Sis. Stephanie M. Cummings Daughters of Esther Rites of Passage Ministry Lead
