Floating in Venice, Italy

The fifth stop on my way to the UK was Venice! Apparently the sea levels are rising, so soon Venice might be completely underwater (according to a random article on the internet) so you should go visit soon if you want to see it! I would most definitely recommend the floating city!

Being A Junior At Senior’s Day

Senior’s Day is the one, big day when all the senior’s get mentioned. They get to walk with their families and get the recognition they deserve for four years of hard work. It is very emotional, too! It is about the end of college and moving on! For a Junior, it is probably the scariest moment in the whole year for the following reasons: It means you are about to be the “Big” one! To be honest, it is great to have someone to look up to. The seniors set the standard and if you like it or not it[…]

An Action Pact Weekend

This past weekend the MNU Serve Team Action Pact went to Hays, Kansas on a quick three day trip to help out a start up church called The Vine. Action Pact is MNU’s improv travel team. When we are asked, we travel to different events, churches, and youth groups  to perform impov as well as skits.

The drive down to Hays took about 5 1/2 hours in our 11 person van. But we found ways to entertain ourselves.


When we arrived in Hays we met with the pastor and went to the church (which is held in a coffee shop) and did a little improv!

We stayed in the pastor’s basement which had a stuffed black bear in it.

On Saturday we went door to door in neighborhoods and trailer parks inviting people to the church. We traveled in groups of two or four. It was heartbreaking and eye opening to see the need for Jesus in Hays. Every single one of our groups had at least one door slammed in our face the second we mentioned the word ‘church’.

On the reverse we spoke to people who were very grateful to have us come by their house and speak with them. Christian was my partner for going door to door and we were able to pray with many people. We prayed for a man who was homeless, a man who had a disease in his legs, and a gentleman’s unborn daughter.

On Sunday Action Pact performed the skit The Old Testament in 20 Minutes at The Vine Church.

It was a great weekend but it was exhausting.

On Sunday after lunch we headed back to Olathe!

Overall it was an excellent weekend! If you are a current MNU student or a prospective student I would suggest that you join an MNU Serve Team one year that you are on campus!

Stay classy,





College – Is It Really Worth It?

A question that every student asks, and every parent is worried about. We all have been there. There are times when all the effort, time, and money seem to be invested into something we don’t really care about. We all learned by heart the stories preaching about the importance of having a college degree. On the other hand, we all know Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates who dropped out of college and are billionaires now. So, which path is the right one? I think that college is not as much about getting a degree as it is about[…]

Switzerland and All It’s Glory

Switzerland was my fourth stop on the way to NTC. It was seriously one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in my entire life. It quite literally takes your breath away. The place that we stayed, when you opened your window you could see the mountains and hear a waterfall. We also took a boat across the crystal clear lake to take a mountain train up Mount Seelisburg and hiked the rest of the way. This is one of the countries that I would go back to in a heartbeat.
