Students Share Gifts and Talents During San Fernando Valley Academy’s Virtual Week of Prayer



A pandemic did not derail San Fernando Valley Academy’s Week of Prayer in early May. Using Zoom, students gathered for a time of spiritual enrichment that followed the theme of furthering God’s work using God-given gifts. The first stanza of the theme song, “A Gift to You”, spoke volumes to students and staff: “Everything I am, everything I’ll be, I give it to You, Lord; and do it thankfully”. Lois DeWitt, 5th and 6th-grade teacher at SFVA, described how the group was blessed with a message, special music, and prayers from talented and eager preschool to eight-grade students. Ancheska from the 6th-grade said of the Week of Prayer: “It was a great way to lift everyone’s spirits after what has been happening around us! We were able to be with God, and I feel closer to Him because of it.”
