A Mission Trip within a Mission Trip…

First off, we would like to say a big “Thank You” and shout out to so many friends that stepped up and helped us make a HUGE impact in the lives of some amazing kids.  This has been an unbelievable year working full time for Back2Back Ministries in Monterrey and the 7 Children’s Homes we serve. Due to a combination of the spiritual climate and level of excellence in which it is run, we have a special soft spot for Mama Paulita’s in El Limon Mexico. This home is over six hours away and receives little to no outside support.  We had a week of vacation to use up that had been allotted for our kids spring break and we decided to do an independent excursion to see how we could help this home out. After opening up the opportunity to friends that were eager to pitch in financially, we were able to do some pretty amazing things that week. Check out the pictures below to get an idea of what we did and the supplies we were able to buy. Thank you to those of you that have supported us in this ministry.  To us you have helped fulfill what is written in James 1:27 “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” May God Bless you, enjoy the photo’s, and thank you for being on our team.

Sebas shopped for hours trying to find the right supplies for El Limon!

The Whited's arriving in El Limon

The van was packed with all kinds of goodies for them.

We had everything from bibles and soccer balls to tools and measuring cups.

These kids not only work hard but they are great at it. Believe it or not they were really excited to have new tools to work with!

We grilled some steaks bigger than this little guy!

Sebas couldn't believe how much games cost! Being in charge of the budget gave him a new perspective on "value."

Sometimes my cosmetology training really comes in handy! I'm not sure how many haircuts I did that week but I had a ton of fun. :)

David was so patient while the girls made bracelets using the supplies we brought them. What a great sport!

A special time of praise and worship. Watching those kids worship the Lord will be an experience we will never forget!

The front porch and side porch were in need of power washing and painting so we bought sandpaper and paint and went to work.

The teenage boys at El Limon were amazing! They would finish their chores early every morning and then help us power wash, sand and paint. We could not have been more impressed!

Colton and Averee along with the boys are sandpapering the porch. They did such a great job and worked so hard.

The finished product! 3 days of work, buckets and buckets of paint, and tons of hours but lots and lots of fun.
