"Physics points to God...there’s mass out there in the universe that we know exists, but we don’t understand. My belief in God fuels my desire to understand physics, which is a human effort to understand the order God put things in," says Kent Underland '11. In his career as a mechanical engineer, he's interned in optics at 3M, perfected rider comfort for Indian Motorcycle at Polaris Industries, and now designs huge, high-tech whey processing machines at RELCO.

“One month we were $800 short of paying rent. And I went to church on Sunday, and one lady at church said that her son had wanted to make a donation, and she had told him about our school. She handed me an envelope...I opened it the next day, and started crying. It was $800.” - Pam Wolf Sladek ’86, who trusts God moment by moment as she offers an education and home for homeless teens through Life Prep Academy. Read her story: ow.ly/ahzc30ov6Lt
