When sixth-grader Genaro Coronado organized a “See You at the Pole” event at his school, he envisioned being joined by two dozen or so students. He was excited that morning at he headed to school because he had been praying and asking the Lord to bring out other students. When Coronado arrived, he was the only one there, so he waited and silently prayed, asking the Lord to send more people. After a few minutes, a female classmate joined Coronado, and they began to pray for their school, their classmates, their city, and more. As the minutes, passed five more students eventually joined them, and they continued to pray around the flagpole. Afterward, Coronado walked away happy, and promised to be back next year because he had seen God answer prayer firsthand. Coronado said, “I was just waiting. I knew God was going to do something.” He added,”"It felt weird kinda, but I just prayed that God would bring me more people. And he did."— Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
