I traveled to Haiti in March to spend time with our staff, see Back2Back’s ministry site and visit the children’s homes we work with. I couldn’t wait to soak up the colors, sounds and bright smiles I recall of Haiti. Once there, I was so inspired by one staff member in particular.
I went on my first international mission trip with Back2Back when I was 10. I served in Monterrey, Mexico with my church and had a great experience – so great that I continued to return to Monterrey every year.
In one project, according to His timing and in His strength, God brought forth all the resources we needed through mission team partners, child sponsorship partners, church partners and prayer partners, from the U.S., the U.K. and India. Only God could enable raising 100% of the funds required to build four family-style homes, mission team housing and infrastructure within a matter of 90 days!
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.
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.
