Lola, by Brian Hubers, B2B Mission Trip Guest »

Last week I traveled with a group from Northstar Vineyard to Monterrey, Mexico for a week-long mission trip with Back2Back.  It was my first time there and it was nothing short of incredible.

Back to School, by Back2Back India Staff »

Ahhh, those familiar words…..Have you even thought about “Back to School” yet? The children in India returned to school in mid-June.

Mirrors, by Back2Back India Staff »

How many times a day do you look at yourself in the mirror? Catch a glimpse in the rear view mirror? Check that your tie is straight? Stand sideways to see if you look thinner? For five months, we lived in an apartment that did not have a mirror. Other basic living needs always seemed […]

Redemption, by Cathy Huffer »

There’s a field on the other side of the street in Rio I.   For the most part, it’s been vacant.  The only sign of life has been the layer of weeds sprouting up.  After the rainy season the ground covering becomes so thick that sexual predators have been known to hide there to prey on […]
