LOCAL NEWS Christ Fellowship to open safehouse One of Palm Beach County’s largest churches launches an initiative to help victims of sex trafficking By Nicole Saunders Staff Writer As Julie Mullins, the wife of Pastor Todd Mullins of Christ Fellowship, was unwinding to go to sleep, she was watching Life Today with James and Betty Robinson, a late night Christian T.V. program discussing human trafficking in Cambodia. “I felt moved and shocked beyond words when I heard ‘modern day’ and ‘slavery’ used in the same sentence,“ said Mrs. Mullins. “It felt like an oxymoron because it should have ended with the Emancipation Proclamation.” According to the United Nations Global Initiative to Fight

Human Trafficking, about 2.5 million individuals are being trafficked in the United States and about 4 million people a year are being traded globally, making human trafficking a multibillion dollar industry. “My husband and I didn’t know what to do but we knew we had to do something,” said Mullins. “We felt compelled to raise awareness with our church family, and we really believe that everyone can do something to make a difference, so we launched a grassroots effort called Yard Sales for Free-
dom.” This grass roots effort took place in the Palm Beach and Martin Counties that aimed to spread awareness of trafficking. Yard Sales for Freedom raised $100,000 in one day to Hope for Freedom, Christ Fellowship’s initiative to battling human trafficking. “We jumped right into the deep end of the pool and it consumed me for the first few months,” Mullins said of the efforts. Eventually, “God started uniting people together that had a passion for this.” Mullins explained that Bonnie Daniels, who served on the Palm Beach County Coalition Against Human Trafficking, was heavily involved in the Hope for Freedom launch team, and she is now a full time staff member. “I can’t quantify how long we spent working towards making this a reality, it was so much a part of what we do as a church,” Mullins said. According to Mullins, the name Hope for Freedom was chosen for two reasons. The first is that “God has put this (human trafficking) in our hearts; we started a kids home called a Place of Hope, we donate to Villages of Hope and Treasures of Hope,” she said. “Hope seems like a word that envelops and births out of what we feel like our mission for the church to be the hope for the world.” “I think because as followers of Christ we know we have to be concerned with the same things God is concerned about,” Mullins said. “We are to be imitators of God, and we have to carry the light in the dark places. Our job as God’s children is to shine light in the dark places.” The goal for Hope for Freedom is to raise awareness, to educate, to launch prevention programs, and help bring restoration to vic-

tims of human trafficking on both a local and global level. With regards to bringing awareness and launching prevention programs, Hope for Freedom is preparing to bring its prevention program to public schools in Palm Beach County by sharing with local guidance counselors some of the warning signs of human trafficking, so they could then share the information with students, particularly female middle-schoolers. After successfully collecting funding for Hope for Freedom, Christ Fellowship began supporting other preventative human trafficking efforts across the globe including the A21 Campaign, which was founded by Christine and Nick Caine of Hillsong church, with the goal of abolishing slavery in the 21st century and Not for Sale. According to PBA’s Not for Sale chapter president, junior Sarah Marie Walsh, Not for Sale is an organization that participates in the fight against human/ sex trafficking and slavery. “Not for Sale is something very special to me because I am very passionate about this topic and my heart has been very bur-
dened since I heard about it,” said Walsh, who plans on working for the organization after graduation. “The Bible is clear about this calling and our generation could be the generation to end this,” Walsh said. “Each of us can make a huge difference and the more we fight and raise awareness the closer we are to seeing slavery end in our lifetime.” Mullins is a strong proponent of individuals using their passions to do good, whether its volunteering for an organization or using personal skills. She believes that “Whatever area God gifts you in, you can make a difference. Everyone can do something.” Mullins suggests that if someone who is artistic wants to donate to Hope for Freedom, instead of donating money directly, he or she should use that money to buy art supplies, such as paint, make a painting, then sell the painting to donate more money to Hope for Freedom. Mullins explained that because there is such a great need for safe houses, they would like to open up ten instead of just one for now. “We have a lot of vision, but
sometimes we ourselves try to get ahead of God,” Mullins said. “We’re just trying to pace ourselves for God, trying not to get too far ahead.” Funding a safe house is a costly endeavor, however. Mullins believes that “Finances are a challenge, not an obstacle. They are an opportunity to really allow people to be apart of what God is doing,” Mullins said. “We believe God will finance it, and it’s a matter of ‘do you want to be apart of it?’ He is going to provide, but He uses people to step up and make a difference.” Although it is not set in stone yet, Mullins believes that there will be missions trips through Hope for Freedom in the future as Christ Fellowship is currently in the process of getting permission to work in a few different countries. Mullins and the Christ Fellowship team are optimistic about the future of Hope for Freedom and believe this safe house will be a success. “Anytime you support a mission or home in poverty you are stopping human trafficking and giving an alternative life to child that is vulnerable,” Mullins said. “Although we don’t call it a stop human trafficking missions, it still helps support preventative efforts just in the human trafficking area.” If you have any interest in learning more about Hope for Freedom or how you can volunteer, contact Bonnie Jo at bonniejod@ cftoday.org. To get involved with Not for Sale at PBA, contact Sarah Marie Walsh at Sarah_Walsh@ pba.edu for more information on the upcoming meeting dates and times.

A taste of Paris in Palm Beach
Through crepes and coffee, Paris Cafe has transported customers to the heart of France By Gabriella Hoge Staff Writer Sipping coffee in a European atmosphere, indulging in a flaky warm croissant and enjoying the conversation of a good friend is more than most Palm Beach Atlantic University students can ask for on a Saturday morning. Abby Gazan, a PBA sophomore, is excited to get away from campus and take a break from the food in the school cafeteria. As she strolls down Olive Avenue with several of her friends, she begins to forget her hectic schedule and embrace the beautiful morning. Several blocks from campus, she arrives at her destination: Paris Bakery Café, a small café dedicated to genuine French food that reinvents the power of

culinary arts and creates a unique and cultural dining experience. The Paris Bakery Café gives customers a glimpse into what it feels like to sit in a café in Paris. Wire tables and chairs line the outside of the café, as the walls inside are decorated with murals and artwork. A glass display proudly shows off French pastries and croissants baked fresh that morning and soft French music flows into the café mixing with the banter of gathering friends. Gazan is particularly attracted to the café because of its authenticity. “Growing up, I lived in
many different places from Kenya to Africa to New York,” she said. “I miss the ethnic diversity, and it’s so refreshing to walk over and experience French culture and food.” Dr. Gerald Wright, professor of cross-cultural studies at PBA, even prefers meeting with students at the Café rather than in his office. “In my office there is a hierarchy of student and professor but at the café it is more relational,” he said. This hidden gem is not a new addition to Olive Avenue. The managers, Andrea and Didier Martin, are a married couple from France who managed a French luxury hotel company internationally for almost 20 years. “We got our green card and became interested in staying in the United States, so our kids could grow up in a stable environment,” said Didier. Purely by chance, they met with a man who previously worked for them in Romania. “He introduced us to his friend who was selling her business,” said Didier. The woman sold them the property on Olive Avenue, and the Martins decided it was the perfect destination to open a café that would reflect their French way of life. Since its debut in 206, the café has extended its business along with its menu, offering a wide variety of French entrees as well as catering and delivery options for breakfast and lunch. For breakfast, the café offers croissant sandwiches and crepes, which includes the PBA student favorite, Crêpe La Fontaine, which is filled with banana, strawberries, Nutella, Amaretto syrup & whipped cream. Omelets, pancakes, salmon toast, French toast and a French specialty called Eggs in a Cup are also available. Lunch entrees offer many French platters as well, such as quiche, sandwiches, wraps, panini’s, subs, salads, and soups including the French favorite, Ratatouille. Breakfast and lunch entrées average around $6.99 to $9.99 and the cafe also offers baked goods for $2.59.

Northwood Village ‘quirky, charming’ By Caroline Case Staff Writer
PHOTO BY NAOMI WALLEN
Open for business Cody Born, employee of Harold’s Coffee Lounge, says that Northwood Village is CityPlace’s “weird stepbrother.”
If someone was to step into Karen Campbell’s small art shop in Northwood Village, he or she would see kaleidoscope-colored glass pieces hanging from the ceiling. One will come across various jewelry made up of glass beads, as well as antique pottery and eclectic wooden pens. Campbell has worked with glass for 15 years. Part of her time was spent oil painting stained glass. She says that she loved it but stained glass was hard to work with since it is fragile. Campbell works with fused glass. In order to do this, the artist combines two compatible pieces of glass together by firing them in a kiln. To make necklaces she cuts glass into
small pieces and fires them. She says fused glass is more solid and has more practical uses. The shop, Northwood Glass Art and Gifts, came about from when she was a vendor selling jewelry at art shows along the streets of now Northwood Village. The Village has been rebuilt over the past five to ten years due to a rough neighborhood surrounding it. Campbell received the opportunity to open up a store and took the chance. Campbell says that the area now has security so it is safe to enjoy. The shop has been open for four years. Northwood Glass Art and Gifts is just one of many shops along the streets of Northwood Village. Harold’s Coffee Lounge has been open for a year and a half. Cody Born, an employee of
the local West Palm Beach coffee shop, describes Northwood Village as CityPlace’s “weird stepbrother.” According to Born, Northwood is quirky, and Harold’s adds to its own charm to the mix. Palm Beach Atlantic University adjunct professor Samuel Perry, who frequents Harold’s, says it’s his favorite place to hang out. In reference to the PBA traffic at the coffee shop, Perry thinks everyone should come to Harold’s at least once. One reason is that he appreciates the diversity of characters that can be found there. “Different people come here from different walks of life,” he says. The store owners at Northwood Village believe they are all like family. “We get along really well,” says Campbell.

IT’S MONDAY NIGHT PHOTOS BY CHELSAE ANNE HORTON
Put on a happy face: The MNL cast (From left, front row: Hannah Speiller, Alex Franks, Morgan Baker, Stephen Troll and Amy Burroughs. From left, back row: Alex Noel, Joey Hedger, Chris Collier, Samantha Horkott and Micah Trout. Not pictured: Jacki Stuckert and Bobbi Thornton) gears up for their first show of the 2012-2013 school year tonight at Vera Lea Rinker Recital Hall at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
leven people walk onto a park at 6 a.m. Half-asleep, they are excited and timid about the idea of throwing paint at each other for a photo shoot. Unfortunately, sunrise hadn’t crossed their minds until they arrived at the location, had set up the paint and the photographer was ready to shoot. When the sun rose an hour later and after tossing shades of red, blue and yellow at each other, they wonder how they will get back to campus. They all drove there but have no towels to clean up. Drenched in paint and not wanting to mess up their cars, a good number decide to make the walk back while three drive back, inevitably getting paint on the dashboard and steering wheel. What seems like the start of a good joke was a reality for 11 out of the 12 cast members of Monday Night Live, MNL, a sketch comedy show on campus spoofing Saturday Night Live. That morning revealed the overall attitude and spirit of this group of funny people. Through layers of red in their hair, blue on their clothes and yellow on their dashboards and piercing through the silence of the early morning, was one thing: laughter. By Chris Hernandez Managing Editor MNL at Palm Beach Atlantic University was the brainchild of former Rinker resident director Jeff Timmer. Timmer had been a fan of a similar show at his alma mater, Indiana Wesleyan University, called Friday Night Live, or FNL. He wanted to bring the show to PBA but things hadn’t fallen into place. That was until he had spoken with a soon to be RA, former cast member and PBA alumnus Taylor Smythe the summer of 2009. According to Smythe, during a Skype session, he had told Timmer that he was in the process of writing comedy videos with a friend. Timmer saw this as his opportunity and Smythe was on board. That year, the two assembled a core group made up of people from Rinker and Baxter and began to get the ball rolling on creating skits for the show. For Smythe, there wasn’t enough momentum that year, so the two set out to make it happen the following year. In fall 2010, Smythe, Timmer and the first cast of MNL
scrambled to get things together for their first show that October according to Smythe. Taking a peek at the crowd that night at Vera Lea Rinker Recital Hall, Smythe was shocked to see a line of people stretching out the front doors. Knowing that word was spreading through Facebook and word-of-mouth, Smythe still didn’t think people knew what they were getting themselves into; it hadn’t been done before. After the years of planning, the time had come for the first MNL. “Yelling ‘Live from West Palm Beach, it’s Monday Night’ at the start of that first show remains one of the most exhilarating memories of my life,” Smythe said. Reinventing the Cast Since its first show, MNL has been a staple at PBA filling up shows, standing room only, on selected Mondays, for the past two years. In its third year, the show, for the first time, will go on without the inclusion of its innovators: Smythe and Timmer. “The hardest part about leaving MNL was giving up something that I feel such strong ownership of,”
said Smythe. “It has been difficult to give up the reins of the show, but I have faith that we have left it in good hands.” For Hannah Speiller, a junior and member of the cast since last year, the absence of Smythe and Timmer is a noticeable one. “It is so difficult. I had no idea, even as part of the cast, how much went into it until they left,” she said. “Then it was like ‘Oh my word’, how are we going to get everything done.” According to Alex Noel, fortunately for the remaining cast members, which started at about half the members as last year, Timmer and Smythe had left them with a thick manual of resources and advice pertaining to the future of MNL. The first part of preparing MNL this year was finding new faces to fill the empty spaces left by Smythe, Timmer and the other graduates. “Now it’s about reestablishing community,” Speiller said. “When we were finding new cast members, there are a lot of funny people, but you don’t want to find the same kinds of funny. It was looking at different people and asking what do they have that
is completely different. You don’t want four Bobbis or three Alexes.” “Because we already have two. We don’t need one more,” said Alex Franks, junior and member of the cast since last year, jokingly in reference to Noel and herself. Chris Collier, sophomore and cast member since last semester, agreed with Speiller. “You want the different aspects of comedy,” he said. “Someone who is good at dry humor and someone who is good at acting like an idiot on stage.”
According to the cast, other factors in choosing cast members are notoriety on campus, leadership and ability to fit in with the rest of the cast. “You want people who are recognizable on campus, who people would want to go see be funny,” said Speiller. For Franks, this year’s group fits the standard. “This group is really cohesive. We work really well together,” she said. “I was excited when we first met to see how it all would work out. There was so much energy.
MONDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2012 “There was a lot of pressure with Taylor and Timmer gone to rise to the challenge,” she said. “I think we are going to with the energy and positivity.” Jacki Stuckert, who also started last year, loves the new energy and specialties the new cast members bring to the table. “Micah Trout is one of the most theatrical performers we’ve had. He has some really great expressions. Morgan Baker was born with impeccable timing,” she said. “Sam Horkott has that ability to make a character her own. She goes that extra mile and gives it her all. And, Joey Hedger is rising into his own. Though he may come off shy at times, he is really funny. I’ve got to see him really blossom on stage, and I’m excited for people to see that.” Beyond comedic facades For Stuckert, MNL has had an impact beyond the stage. The winter break before one of her first shows, Stuckert received news that her friend Michael had passed away. When she came back to campus in January, she began to miss him and the comfort of her friends in her hometown. During that time, MNL was in preparations for its February show. It was during this time, Stuckert said, she began to find the laughter again. “Being around that group of people, I was able to find joy,” she said. “Knowing who Michael was, a person who always had such a zeal for life, and through laughter, I could rest assured that there was still some good in the world.” MNL has had a similar impact on Smythe. “The start of MNL during my junior year could not have come at a better time,”
Smythe said. “I was having a pretty rough year in many respects, but to have the outlet of MNL to still be able to cultivate a spirit of joy in myself and others in spite of awful circumstances was priceless. Laughter is an essential part of my life.” Laughter, wit and comedy remain at the heart of all the members of MNL. “We play characters that none of us are. We get place ourselves in different sets of shoes, gain new perspectives and laugh in the process,” Stuckert said. “Laughter is such a simple thing and such a gift from God. I don’t know what the world would be without it.” MNL TONIGHT at Vera Lea Rinker Recital Hall at 7:30 p.m and 9:30 p.m.

PBA Alumnus, Daniel Vicente, will be leaving for a two-year appointment with Operation Mobilization in Southern Africa this March. By Megan Human Staff Writer When Palm Beach Atlantic University alumnus Daniel Vicente set off on the Africa Trek last summer, he did not expect to be doing ministry at border crossings. He did not expect a real world encounter with spiritual warfare, and he definitely did not expect to find the organization that would give him direction for the next two years of his life. In March, Vicente will be leaving for a two-year appointment with Operation Mobilization in Southern Africa. As a leader for the Africa Trek, he will be training teams to evangelize, preach and minister to the same communities and people groups that he reached out to last summer through the PBA-sponsored trip. Participation in the trip equipped Vicente for his further involvement with Operation Mobilization. “Going through the Africa Trek with them for three months, I was not only able to learn to be a better disciple, but also able to gain skills to make disciples,” said Vicente. “You are in the Word at all times, you are seeking God, praising, sharing, teaching, and God is able to reveal to you so many things that He desires for your life and the lives around you.” The trip took Vicente and other PBA participants, along with seven students from Operation Mobilization training schools, through five Southern Africa countries. “Together we travelled doing ministry of all sorts, [includ-
world,” said Vicente. “OM, or Operation Mobilization, is known for trying to mobilize the Church. We are trying to mobilize people to preach and go and do missions.” As a graduated PBA student, Vicente feels well prepared for the mission field. Classes at PBA offered specific knowledge and encouraged him to think with a biblical worldview. “Having a cross cultural minor has been very helpful, especially in Malawi with the Muslims. In my studies, I took a lot of interest in Islam,” said Vicente. He found this helped him in knowing “what to say and what not to say,” and how
to approach Muslims. “Having read the Koran before really helped me understand their point of view,” he said, as did the class Islam and Cultural Competence and Ethnography. Over the next several weeks, OM will complete Vicente’s strength assessment, and his exact placement in the mission field will be finalized. Ideally, he will depart for South Africa this coming March. “You can’t go wrong when you follow God,” said Vicente. “Whether it’s missions overseas or missions in the city where you live, God is always active. You have just got to give it a try, and have faith.”

SPORTS Sailfish push streak to 21 By Kent Berame Contributing Writer
Defensive hands: Stephany Brown (#3, top) and Elly Raush go high to block a shot against Warner University.
The Palm Beach Atlantic University Women’s Volleyball Team ran its winning streak to 21 games Thursday night, besting St. Thomas University in straight sets. The Sailfish have not lost a match since Sept. 1. Win number 20 in the streak came Tuesday when PBA defeated Warner University, 3-0. With a record of 23-2, PBA stands at a pace to surpass or at least meet last year’s record of 30-5. “Blessed,” said sophomore libero Melissa Buckingham, describing the season. “We couldn’t have done any of this without God’s blessing, and God’s talents that he has given us.” “I knew we were going to be good, and that we were going to have a lot of talent,” said Buckingham. “I didn’t know how we were going to mesh. Actually it surprises me how well we are playing together.”. “It’s something that none of us really anticipated,” said Head Coach Bob White. “We lost five seniors last year; we have five freshmen coming in basically to take their place. So it wasn’t anticipated. When it happens, it’s even more exciting.” Every school has a different way of playing the game, and White believes his way produces wins. “I think we have emphasized our philosophy of how we play the game,” said White. “We have focused our attention on what we call serve and serve receive, so we spend a lot more time practicing those two pieces of the volleyball puzzle more than probably your average Division II school, so when we get into a match, we think that’s an advantage that we have.” White’s win-loss record should attest to his philosophy. When the Sailfish defeated Southeastern University on Sept.
27, it marked the 300th collegiate win for White. Add in the 198 games that White’s teams won when he coached high school, and it now makes a coaching career with over 500 wins and only 107 losses. “I didn’t know it was coming, so it was a surprise,” said White of the 300-game mark. “I sent an email and a Facebook message to every player that has ever played for me to thank them because we did it together. It wasn’t something I set out to do, it wasn’t a goal for me, but it’s a milestone accomplishment that I didn’t accomplish on my own.” White emphasizes tying faith and volleyball together. “I think that’s the treat that really ties this team together that maybe another team that doesn’t have Christ doesn’t have,” said White. “There are three things that we pray for every day. One is to love one another, two is that God will give us favor based upon how hard we work, and three is that everything we do will honor Him.” “They strive to get better every day,” said White of his Sailfish. “We talk about the little things that we have to do. It’s not big things. It’s just little things. I think they work hard on the little things and they realize that can lead to big things. They know what they have to do, and they know who they’re playing for when they do it.” “We are winning, but we can’t be okay with that,” said Buckingham. “We need to strive to be better after every practice. It’s about continuing to play for the Lord.” Buckingham led the team in digs with 16 in Thursday’s game. Faith Rohn had 14 kills, followed by Mariela Quesada with 10 kills. The Sailfish defeated St. Thomas University before a Parents Weekend crowd with scores of 25-13, 25-19 and 25-21.
