There are not enough words to encapsulate our experience in Axtell. Blessed, fun, graciousness and rejuvenating are just a few that could top the list. The Mosaic community is something special and it was an experience I think that helped made us all better people. The residents who live in Mosaic have various mental and [...]

Intention, community, comfort, open-mindedness. As we entered the week, these words and ideas were at the forefront of our thoughts. Our small group of five students each presented our goals, hopes and ambitions that we’d focus on during the week as we crowded our van to Mobile, Alabama. A group of five young girls embarking [...]
As we all walked in to the room we were staying, there was no doubt that there were doubts in my mind. Being the first Creighton students to travel to Niobrara, we had no idea what to expect. Our group knew that we would be interacting with members of the Ponca tribe, undergoing certain traditional [...]

It was our first meal of the week. The Stroud President of Habitat for Humanity walked us into an older looking Mozzios Italian Restaurant. As we walked in, our group went to get a couple Pizzas, but Marilyn (the president) immediate went to say hi to the only other group of people at the restaurant. [...]
Coming into L’arche community, I didn’t know what to expect. We had been told it was a community that helped with mentally and physically handicapped individuals, but this barely scratched the surface of what L’arche truly was. I spent time in the day center where we did arts and crafts. At every turn, I met [...]
Leaving our service site of El Paso, TX I saw everyone in our group transform into individuals broken by the stories they heard and mended by the people they met. We had the pleasure of meeting many extraordinary speakers. We listened to their stories of how they tried to help the undocumented and promote immigration [...]

Below is an excerpt from Paul’s personal testimony that he shared with Rep. Don Bacon: As an economics major, I am taught to analyze everything in terms of incentives, opportunity costs, supply, demand, among a plethora of other technical terms. So when I tell you that my story would not have been possible if it [...]
I may be an English major, but I love music. I have been singing since I was nine years old, and stopped singing outside of my personal life when I was a sophomore here at Creighton. My boyfriend and friends, however, can tell you that I don’t cook a meal with out bursting into song [...]
Being a member of Core Team, I know I should be one of the biggest advocates of our Service & Justice Trips. However, after reading articles like “To Hell with Good Intentions” or others related to the cost of short-term missions, I was feeling more than skeptical if we were doing more good than harm. [...]
It’s hard to say how incredibly blessed we were to spend a week with profoundly spiritual people on the Winnebago Indian Reservation. Our “liaison” Dwight, an elder of the Omaha tribe at just age 59, was our wíugóⁿba, or window, into the world of the Omaha and Winnebago tribes. He voiced numerous frustrations, including: • [...]
