A New Song, by Hope Maglich, Back2Back Mexico Staff

This spring, we have been teaching the children in the Rio about worship. It has been fantastic! A donor supplied us with money to purchase instruments for the children and thus the idea sprang into action.

Peeling an Onion, by Mindy Webster, Back2Back Mexico Staff

Last week, in our ongoing staff training, we talked about the connection between anger and fear.  The short of it is that most anger is rooted in fear.  Think of anger as a basket of onions.  Anger is that outer onion skin that makes the onion messy and dull but protects the insides.  When you… Read more

Back to School, by Mindy Webster, Back2Back Mexico Staff

I don’t usually associate spring time with “back to school” time, but that’s what it’s been for our Monterrey staff!  We realized a need to be more educated on the psychological and emotional issues that the orphan child faces and had a desire to be more equipped to do something about it.  So this spring… Read more

Poorest of the Poor, by Matt Cooper, Back2Back Cancun Staff

The social worker from the DIF (Child & Family Services) here in Cancun said she wanted us to meet a family, and wondered if there was anything we could do for them, as they were in a very rough situation.

Shaken to the Core, by James Bush, Mexico Mission Trip Participant

My recent trip to Monterrey, Mexico has messed with me in the deepest way possible. Majestic.  Beautiful.  Powerful. I was overwhelmed.  It was Sunday morning at Casa Hogar Douglas, an orphanage, in Monterrey.

The Carrot Seed, by Hope Maglich, Back2Back Mexico Staff

” A little boy planted a carrot seed… and the whole world said nothing would sprout.” – The Carrot Seed by Ruth Krauss For the majority of the children I work with in the Rio the whole world has said they won’t succeed, they won’t thrive, they won’t amount to anything,… they won’t sprout.
