Davis and Macie Smith receive perfect scores
Davis and Macie Smith, children of Greg and Lauren Smith of Manila, received perfect scores in the State Bible Drill held recently at the Park Hill Baptist church in North Little Rock.
This is their first year to participate in the Bible Drill program. Davis, 12, and Macie 10, spent a lot of time preparing for the meet. They were in the same grade level, fourth-sixth grades. There is also a high school level.
Davis and Macie are members of Ridgecrest Baptist in Blytheville where their dad serves as pastor. This is the first year the church has taken part in the Bible drills and they had 15 participants.
Davis and Macie qualified for Regional which was held in Paragould. They did well in Regional and both qualified to go on to State where they finished with perfect scores.
Davis said they don't compete against each other. They have to answer 24 different questions in four categories. The categories are Book Call; Key Passage Call; Quotation Call; and Completion Call.
They learned the 66 books in the Bible and were able to find any book in 10 seconds or less. They also learned passages and verses.
They enjoyed the state Bible Drills where approximately 150 participated in groups of 12.
They both studied hard and were prepared. They agreed it was a great experience and they are looking forward to continuing with the Bible drills.
