We feel so blessed to join the Back2Back team in Monterrey, Mexico. Over the last year, the Lord has really pressed upon our hearts to monetarily serve others by sponsoring children through Compassion International as well as give of our time by volunteering at the local retirement center. This only fed and increased our desire to serve more and we felt God leading us to find a missions organization that we could serve with for an entire year alongside our two teenage children. Through a connection with former Back2Back staff member Joanne Arnott we learned of the work being done in Monterrey. After only a few days of visiting the operations in Mexico and getting to meet the amazing staff led by Todd and Beth Guckenberger we knew this is what God had been preparing us for for years. The Hunger 2010 Bible Study by Back2Back quoted Fredrick Buechner, “The place where God calls you is the place where your deep gladness and the worlds hunger meet.” We are very excited about being in that place.
