“He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing.”Deuteronomy 10:18 Field Story by Hope Garcia, Monterrey I love oatmeal cream pies.

Be their Father. Defend their cause. Give them food and clothing. Not to forget them. These are just a few of the many promises God makes to the orphaned child. What we can easily forget is that we, too, receive each of these promises. Will you join us over the next twelve months as we […]

Strengthening Connection: a Father’s Day story »

If I Had a Super Power »

This month’s guest writer is Kaden Kimple. Kaden submitted the following essay last fall to Power of the Pen, Ohio’s Interscholastic Creative Writing Program for Middle Schools, while her mom was on a mission trip with Back2Back Ministries.

Reckless Faith: Rita’s Story »

Wild. Fearless. Uninhibited. Reckless. A willingness to trust even when lacking understanding. As Back2Back Ministries celebrates 20 years, we want to share how stepping into the global orphan care movement has made your faith more wild, fearless, uninhibited and, perhaps, even a bit reckless.
