Our family group loved our experience with Back 2 Back. There was a great balance of work projects as well as interaction with the children at the children's home. The debriefing time is a wonderful opportunity to process thoughts and emotions of the day. We loved the intentional discussion as family. The staff are all such high quality people and we loved getting to hear more of their stories and the behind the scenes stories going on in children's lives and other people's lives impacted by the ministry! Thank you for such wonderful opportunities.
We have been privileged to serve with Back2Back in Monterey about 5 times. We have gone on family trips with our 5 children. Each trip has been such a growing experience for each of us as we serve the orphans and the Rio communities. We were thoroughly impressed with the quality of the staff as well as the structure and efficiency of managing a variety of groups working and traveling to different children's homes or rio communities to serve. It has been awesome to see the impact of the care and love given to the children and various communities empowering and changing lives.
I went with a group to Monterrey, Mexico and served with the Back2Back staff at several of the children's homes. Each and every staff member was filled with a love for God and orphans. They truly are examples of "Preach the gospel always. Use words if necessary." They needed no words. My 13 year old daughter was with me and she can't wait to become an intern when she is older. Whether we were cleaning, painting, or playing with the kids...the staff were models of we are the hands and feet of Christ. Can't wait to go back!!!!
My name is Rita Haworth and my family and I have been serving with Back2Back Ministries since 2006. Over the years we have been blessed to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus. Were involved in many projects such as painting, building houses, medical centers, a school, outdoor fireplaces, building picnic tables, cleaning the childrens rooms, and most of all building relationships with the children of Monterrey Mexico. We have been blessed in so many ways through this minisitry, we are closer to God, we share the gospel more and have seen Gods promise of being a father to the fatherless.
As an Intern in India with Back2Back, I had the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ. Back2Back builds partnerships with national orphan care organizations who share their vision: Care for today- Hope for tomorrow, to empower individual orphans and their communities. Whether our days were spent painting fingernails, playing duck-duck-goose or getting down and dirty cleaning a facility - orphans were shown the love of Christ.
I've been on the short term missions trips with Back2Back Ministries in Monterrey Mexico three times in the past few years. I loved working in the Children's Homes and playing with the kids. The staff and all they do is amazing. I can't wait to go back soon.
We have gone 3 times to Monterrey mexico with B2B. We have found the impact this organization is making on the children and its volunteers is truly remarkable. After serving in El Rio a shanty town we found a connection of hope by supplying simple needs of food and encouragement to the residents. My children were also touched at the poverty they lived in realizing that we could make an impact on there lives has helped them not only appreciate the opportunities they have, but also taking advantages of the opportunities to give.
In 2008 I went to Back2 Back in Monterrey Mexico. It was a wonderful experience working with some of the orphans and with building projects. The staff was wonderful ! I hope someday to return. It was an eye opening experience for me. It actually helped me to realize that God was calling me into ministry. Thank you Back 2 Back.
After going on several mission trips to Back2Back Ministries in Monterrey, Mexico, I decided it was time to organize trips, so that others could have this same experience. No other mission organization offers the variety of experiences, the help with organization, and the personal spiritual growth opportunities that B2B provides. Many of the group members continue to support B2B and the orphans B2B serves by returning and giving financially to allow these chlldren to see how much God truly cares for them. In recent months I was able to experience a mission trip to B2B Nigeria, and came home knowing that the model for ministry that B2B uses is one that pleases God in all areas.
Back To Back is the best non profit I work with. I often explain their model to other groups I work with because it is run so professionaly.
And the people that work for them have passion for their cause's like no other organization.
My son volunteered for a month last summer and came back a better young man. He had a great experience.
