see you at the pole
last week was "see you at the pole". it's one morning a year. for kids that love Jesus to gather around their flagpole before school starts and pray for their school. it's been around a LONG time (i remember doing it when i was in high school!)
rebekah didn't hesitate in going. she was a little nervous...she doesn't know many Christians at her school...but i think we both assumed that, even if she didn't KNOW the people, that there would BE PEOPLE.
there were 3 other girls besides her. and 2 of them were sisters. (it shows 5 total in the picture - one was an adult with her baby in the stroller...a friend of one of the girls?)
i was proud of her for going. but couldn't believe that out of 2000 students, only 4 showed up to pray for their school.
so, we're starting with 4. and i can't wait to see how God makes Himself known. i know He will hear our prayers. and i pray that the light of Jesus that i KNOW is in that school would spread like a wildfire.
**edited to add: i know there are more Christians at her school, i'm certain other students pray for their school even if they weren't standing at a flagpole. and i know people have good reasons for not being there. but it's also kind of telling of the atmosphere my daughter is walking into each day. and i'm thankful for the reminder to pray for her, and all the students at her school more fervently.
