When Alberto arrived at Salvation Army Children’s Home in Mazatlan, Mexico, he was years behind in his education. He had been home-schooled at a government-run children’s home and had limited interaction with other children his age.
Back2Back staff serve the orphan child worldwide in varied positions. This month, we chat with co-captain of Casa Hogar del Norte in Monterrey Mexico, Jenn Holden.
Over the last few years, Back2Back has seen tremendous growth in our Child Sponsorship Program. We are thrilled to be able to connect you with the children you love, and thank God that He lets us witness the impact it has on their lives.
Sixteen-year old Alberto loves textile arts, soccer and skateboarding. He enjoys spending afternoons with Back2Back staff at a local skate park. He strives to be a leader in his children’s home, someone they can look up to and come to for advice.
I had wanted to participate in a mission trip for over ten years. For numerous reasons it hadn’t happened yet. I was having lunch with a dear friend who was going to Cancun in just a little over two weeks. I shared that I’d love to participate if it wasn’t too late.
We are excited to share the new theme for June 2014-June 2015. It is the Biblical principle of God who makes all things new (Rev. 21:5). He remakes, renames, and rebuilds all that is broken.
