My name is Phillip Prado and I’m a freshman here at MidAmerica Nazarene University. I’m majoring in Youth and Family Ministries but who knows what degree I will graduate with? God has a funny way of changing people’s plans doesn’t he? I guess that’s at least true for me. And MNU has already been a place of “changed plans.” I hear story after story of people who made plans for themselves and God is taking them and using them in His plan. It’s humbling seeing how little control we, as humans, actually have. That’s why I chose to go to school here at MidAmerica. I know I can fulfill my purpose for God here. He’s moving in this school and I am very proud to be a witness of that movement. I’m even more proud to be involved in that movement. Whether it’s as a Blogger, doing one of MNU’s ministerial groups, or even in just simple fellowship with my friends and class mates. I know God will use me in any way He can. God loves every single one of us and the moment we begin to truly live like that is truth will be the moment we begin to live for God. I look forward to my future here and I hope I will embrace it with open arms and live in God’s light as much as possible. My name is Phillip Prado, I’m a freshman at MNU, and if there’s one thing I really want you to know about me it’s this: God loves me, He sent his son to die for me, and I will spend the rest of my life, in every way I can, in every situation, living like that’s the truth and sharing that truth with the world.
