Dreams, by Back2Back India »

Ashok is a bright, energetic and friendly 12 year old boy at one of the children’s homes served by Back2Back India. In October 2008, his mother was killed in an accident. His father is a coolie, a manual laborer unloading sand trucks. As a poor widower working long days, he was unable to take care […]


Heading to Haiti, by Todd Guckenberger, Back2Back Executive Director »

When the earthquake happened in Haiti this past January, many of our Back2Back ministry supporters called and asked what we were planning on doing.  In the initial days as we prayed about how God might want us to mobilize and coordinate to respond to the need, we realized that Back2Back is not necessarily  a relief […]

Chicken Dinner for Families in Need, by Corrie Guckenberger, Back2Back Nigeria »

This past fall, Back2Back sent out a Christmas gift catalog, in which people could sponsor “gifts” in various ways in different areas of ministry within Back2Back.

Mexico’s Children, by Ben Rickert, Back2Back Mission Trip Participant »

Last year, the American media was obsessed with Mexican crime. Throughout the year, our Michigan airwaves were packed with stories depicting horrible acts of gang violence and warnings that Mexico’s government was unable to control the drug trade.

Ice Cream and Pizza Party, by Corrie Guckenberger, Back2Back Nigeria Staff »

For Christmas, my parents gave all of sixteen of their grandchildren $30 USD. But, the gift itself was for them to see the joy in giving, so a letter was written to each of them about it and what they had to do was find a “cause” or a “need” other than their own life […]

Off to a Good Start, by Back2Back India »

Since late 2008, Back2Back has been serving orphan children in India. We recently had the opportunity to visit Hyderabad and see how things are going. It was a great trip. Back2Back Executive Director, Todd Guckenberger, came along. He was able to see each of our ministry sites, meet the directors of those programs and interact […]

God’s Story of Redemption »

Last week I had the privilege of speaking at Cincinnati’s Teen Challenge Ranch, where I shared about God’s promise to come after us and pursue a relationship with us, no matter who we are or what we have done.  At one point, I was so impressed by these promises, I lost my composure, and could […]
