What’s in a Name?, by Back2Back India Staff »

Prior to my first mission trip to Back2Back Mexico, I asked my friend to teach me a few phrases in Spanish to make sure that I could communicate with the children at the children’s homes. One phrase that I worked really hard on was “Me llamo es . . . ” (or “My name is […]

I Will Not Leave You as Orphans, by Benjamin Riggs, Back2Back Mission Trip Guest »

The last night that I was in Monterrey, before communion Matt Massey shared some awesome insight to Jesus’ words at the Lord’s supper.  He spoke about how a bridegroom builds a house in order to have His bride to be in marriage. “He is finishing a house to come get His bride,” Matt said. Since […]

Trust »

Last week I was at one of our squatter village sites, walking with an unbelievably gifted professional photographer (check out his pictures), helping him capture some images that could translate their world into ours.

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. Their “summer holiday” is during May when the temperatures reach 115 degrees Fahrenheit.

You Have Been Saved, by Shannon Kahrs, B2B Mission Trip Guest »
