Are you ready to start earning your Back2Back Ministries Patch? Just complete the steps below and prepare to GO, SERVE and LOVE orphaned and vulnerable children around the world. Click here for a printable PDF of this page.
- Read “Tales of the Ones He Won’t Let Go” by Beth Guckenberger.
- Choose two of the following:
- Write a reflective journal entry (a page or two) about one orphaned or vulnerable child’s story that impacted you. Feel free to be creative. Record your thoughts, pray, and maybe even draw a picture or write a poem!
- Answer the following discussion questions with your family or Unit: Which story/stories impacted you the most and why? Did you relate to one of the stories? If so why? Do you feel there is something God is putting on your heart or nudging you to pray about or do? Have you ever developed a relationship with or served an orphaned or vulnerable child? Would you want to go on a mission trip to serve orphaned and vulnerable children? Why?
- Complete the “Healing Bags” activity from “Tales of the Ones He Won’t Let Go”.
Supplies: Large resealable plastic bags, samples of toiletries and personal hygiene items, tissues, small mirrors, small brushes, clothing, small Bibles, Scripture list, candy, gum, and gift cards.
Activity: Make healing bags that can be donated to your local hospital, children’s home, or women’s shelter. The kids can help organize the bags and/or make or bring things to go in them. Here are some ideas of things to put in the bag: bracelets (girls could make), clothing in various sizes (include new underwear and sports bras), new socks, small Bibles, devotional pamphlets or gift books (or ones made by girls), list of favorite scriptures, hard candy, gum, and gift cards.
- Follow this link to choose a young girl served by Back2Back who shares your birthday month, or to whom you feel called, and come alongside her in prayer every day for one month.
- Complete the Back2Back Ministries “I Am for You” Bible study guide. Read all 10 days and answer the study guide questions.
