Week of Prayer (WOP) is an integral part of Adventist education and an important factor in the spiritual development of students. For Calexico Mission School (CMS) this is particularly true since 85 percent of the current 180 students are not Seventh-day Adventist. So, even in the midst of a pandemic and with the closure of the international border, which has forced the school to keep its doors closed for in-person instruction for all K-12 students since the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, CMS hosted its second (virtual) WOP this year. Pastor Jason Decena, chaplain at La Sierra University, spoke to the students on the theme “Unmasked.” Students were exhorted to live genuinely and to the fullest even in the face of adversity. The virtual experience provided a new way to be engaged during the week of spiritual revival as students used their creativity to stay connected with God and each other through videos and interactive games.
