Along with my wife and our daughter, I took my first short-term mission trip with this ministry in 2007 in order to serve orphans in Monterrey, MX. The depth and meaningfulness of the entire week was beyond anything I'd imagined. We've gone every year since, have been regular donors to the ministry's education program for orphans in Mexico, and advocate for the ministry wherever and however we can. Back2Back is less about relief and more about "release." Release from the sentence that orphans in poverty face with little opportunity to break free of the cycle of orphan creation, by investing into more than just food/clothing for the children. Over the years, I've come to know many of the staff personally and each one is 100% genuine in their love of children and commitment to the ministry's mission and vision. I've also learned that the ministry is an extremely efficienct non-profit, with only 14% of donations going to cover non-program related expenses. I encourage anyone who wants to make a difference in the life of an abandoned child, to roll up their sleeves and get involved with Back2Back.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how it's impacted my family and our view of our responsibility to help those least able to change their circumstances: abandoned, abused and neglected children in abject poverty. I've also seen the impact it's having on the children who've been touched by the ministry and the short-term mission trip guests who have partnered with Back2Back.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

look for ways to expand the awareness of the ministry.

I do alot of business in Mexico and love the people. I did some research on some ministries in Monterrey specfically. I found Back2Back and visited shortly after. What an incredible story this ministry has. Wonderful people who through their love for Christ are making an incredible difference in the lives on so many children. A short flight from Houston, you can go down and volunteer or just make a short visit to see how your donations are helping. Trust me, one visit and you'll be looking to see how you or your company can help this organization.

The only thing I wish I could do is to give more!

I have the distinct priviledge of watching and being part of the B2B Mexico mission since the beginning 13 years ago. While my opinion is strongly biased because of my personal relationship with Todd & Beth (I'm Todd's dad) I often brag about what they are doing and the wonderful way they do it. I have lost count of the number of times I have visited B2B in Monterrey. What impresses me most is the fantastic staff doing this ministry.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have watched children come from the orphanages complete high school and college with the support of B2B and become productive Mexican adults.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them serve more orphans

GOD asked that we show our compassion to children. No one does it better than B2B! Amny of us in the USA are priveledged in our economic situation to shower our children with many gifts. B2B has set up in regions around the world that are far less fortunate and it is often the children that suffer the most. B2B takes action and bring love, support and a foundation of Christ to raise these children to go on and lead a similar life giving back to those in need. The true cycle of a Chritian life. I have had the good fortune of joining my daughter on trips with the B2B organization and it has been one of the most rewarding times of my life. More importantly, it has shaped my daughter's passion for children and those in need. This is something she plans to be a part of her life. What a gift to give to our children. Volunteer, donate, reach out - B2B will show you how and you will never be the same

B2B is a terrific organization!

I say that after my family has been involved on multiple levels for the past decade; we have supported individuals, families, and specific projects. We have been involved in funding, organizing, and casting vision for ongoing operations. We have participated in 2 on-site trips, and my children's lives have been changed so much that they are anticipating long-term commitments during HS and college years.

B2B goes "deep, not wide"; they live as they teach, caring for the "fatherless and widows" and bringing hope through dignity and self respect, breaking the bondage of generational poverty.

The best way to experience this is to get in there and just go- get dirty and tired. It will change your life...

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

sponsoring individual and family trips and staff members and their families

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would- and do- increase my involvement through funding and participation; B2B has proven that they are reliable and forthright in all they do; my commitments are respected and used wisely; I feel that I have a partnership with them, and I look forward to lifelong involvement.
