The light of Jesus Christ shines brightly at the Mountain Lake, Minnesota Christian School! I am from Windom, Minnesota, 14 miles from Mt. lake. Mt. Lake is a beautiful community, always has been a Christian community. I loved going with my mom and dad when I was a little boy to eat at one of their favorite restaurants in Mt. Lake. My dad had many friends there, especially on the Mt. Lake Fire Department, my dad was assistant Chief of the Windom Fire Dept. and both departments would rely on each other when they would fight big fires.
Did your community and school district observe “See You at The Pole?” I love this day, as it SHINES THE LIGHT OF JESUS CHRIST TO THE WORLD!
When I see what took place in Mt. Lake yesterday, it gives me hope.
We posted about “See You at The Pole” but I did not hear of any schools here in New Mexico that observed it. If you know of any that did, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I treasure rural Minnesota.
My challenge that I have for myself and all of you is, SHINE YOUR LIGHT FOR JESUS MORE THAN EVER! What is the spiritual health of your community? What are you doing to have an impact for JESUS?
From Mt. Lake Christian School: Yesterday (Sept. 27th) at 7:20 MLC secondary students joined with their friends at MLPS for “See You at the Pole,” a prayer initiative that began in 1990 and has spread around the globe. Following the gathering at the public school, MLC held an all-school prayer and worship time around the flagpole in the front lawn. Would you take a moment today to pray for the students in our community?
Here is what I posted earlier this week about “See You at The Pole”
Are you taking part? I pray so!
From The Baptist Press:
SAN DIEGO (BP) – See You at the Pole is engaging parents in prayerwalking schools the weekends surrounding the Sept. 27 event to mobilize families in prayer year-round.
Organizers of the student-founded grassroots event have long hoped it would cement prayer as a daily family practice, spokesperson Doug Clark said.
“We have always been interested in having the moment of See You at the Pole move towards a movement of prayer,” Clark told Baptist Press. “We feel like that’s one of the most powerful legacies See You at the Pole can provide.”
Students across the U.S. and in several foreign countries will pray in groups at flag poles or other prominent sites on campuses at 7 a.m. local time Sept. 27. More Here
See You at the Pole is an annual gathering of thousands of Christian students at school flag poles, churches, and the Internet for the purposes of worship and prayer. The event began in 1990 in Burleson, Texas, when a group of teenagers gathered to pray for several schools. It is now an international event; in 2005, over two million students in the U.S. participated, as well as students in Canada, Cote d’Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ecuador, Ghana, Guam, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Kenya, South Korea, Malaysia, Nigeria, Norway, Peru, Portugal, Scotland, Singapore and South Africa.
