Back2Back Ministries provides orphan care at sites around the globe. While we have most often visit Back2Back’s Mazatlan site, in 2024 we will be returning to Cancun which was the site of our first trip with Back2Back in 2014. In Cancun, orphan care is really orphan prevention. Back2Back is working in the community through two Community Centers to help strengthen families so that giving up their children is not the only option. Back2Back is answering the call to serve vulnerable children and families by providing for their physical, educational, spiritual, social, and emotional needs through trauma informed care and their 5-point child development plan.
We will be housed together in a team house with dormitory style living. All meals are provided by the ministry – breakfast at the house (cereal, toast, fruit, juice, etc.), the team packs lunch for onsite and then more traditional style Mexican meal in the evening. The group will have devotions and worship daily to grow our own walk with Jesus and help us process our experiences. During the day we will be participating in work projects and interacting with families and children. With all mission trips it is important for participants to remain flexible with a servant’s heart that says we are there to support the ministry however they need.
Flight arrangements have already been made, we will be leaving Dayton on the morning of June 22nd and returning on the evening of June 27th. A $100 deposit is due by January 7th to reserve your spot and then payments of at least $250 are due by the 15th of February, March, and April. The trip must be paid in full by May 15. Some scholarship dollars are available through the church and the team can plan fundraisers to offset the cost of the trip. We don’t want finances to be the reason anyone chooses not to participate. If God is calling you to this experience we are confident that the finances can be arranged. The team will meet at least once a month and the schedule will be determined at the first meeting in January. All team members are expected to participate in these meetings. The cost of vaccinations, passports, and meals on travels days are the only things not included in the trip cost.
