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!
