Stories from See You at the Pole 2014
Amazing TransformationA student at a rural high school near Seattle, Washington went to a church youth group in January with a friend, "as a last resort." She had a plan to take her own life the next day if the youth group didn't help. She met Christ through the group.
Now walking with the Lord, she was at SYATP on Wednesday. She shared with her youth leader: "The most amazing thing happened this morning at our flag pole there were about fifteen of us, and this group of kids started mocking us, (it's a group I'm really familiar with) then one steps out of their group and joins us, then the rest of them did too. It's the same group I turned around and asked to youth group on Monday. It was absolutely amazing!!"
They Can Come to Know Him
The Right Place at the Right TimeWhen students at LaPorte (Texas) High School decided to have their See You At The Pole gathering twice—at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.—they didn't know they would be praying for a friend, classmate and teammate who was to meet his Lord and Savior. During the gathering, the group was informed their classmate Jake had collapsed on the football field, so they immediately lifted him up in prayer. Later when they were told he had passed away, they continued to pray, lifting Jake's loved ones up in prayer.
Great Things for God
Train up a Child . . .At 9:00 his morning Matthew took to his knees to do something amazing. He prayed. By himself. At his school’s flag pole.
Matthew’s dad, a pastor, asked, “Why did you want to go to the flag pole at your school this morning?” Matthew replied, "Because I wanted to serve my Lord and Savior.”
Matthew’s father noted on Facebook, “His youth pastor has done amazing job pouring into his life and teaching them the importance of moments like this.” The picture below is evidence of that.
When asked what he prayed for, Matthew said, he prayed for his school and specifically for his principle, so that he could be used to be a great principle and that he'd enjoy the time he spends with the kids.
