From a Creighton Student's Perspective

Freshman, Finance and Business Management Double Major,
Four short months ago, I packed my bags, told my siblings goodbye and, after numerous hugs, left my hometown to move to Omaha, Nebraska. Four short months ago, my parents took me out to breakfast, told me they would miss me, and drove away. Four short months ago, I was left on my own, for the first time in my life.
Today, Mary and Joseph seem to be in the same predicament I was in as I started my college career. They are on a journey to a foreign place, and their friends and family have been left behind. These new parents were told by God to leave for Egypt, to an unknown place where they have no connections. What amazes me is that they listened. They left Bethlehem without the opportunity to consult even their parents or close friends; they simply trusted God, and were willing to leave everything they knew to do His will. This may be bold, but I’m going to bet that they didn’t have cell phone, Skype or even Facebook access back then. They had to depend on Him throughout their time in Egypt. They had to truly let God become their Father.
