Mt Vernon, OH
During their spring week of prayer, Mt Vernon Academy’s students were deeply stirred as they began to have their pictures of God corrected and were able to see the true beauty of His character. The value of our young people cannot be overstressed. The themes discussed were the following: the importance of having a correct picture of God, why bad things happen to us if God loves us, the purpose for which we were created, God’s forgiveness, and the transforming effect God’s love has on each of us in awakening in us the desire to live other-centered lives. The week climaxed with an incredibly life changing encounter with God’s love as revealed through Jesus sacrifice at Calvary. Over 50 young people came forward and made decisions for Jesus.
