Thanks to Neil Buchanan (here, here, here, here), Vic Fleischer (here, here, here, here), and Ruth Mason (here, here) for filling in for me while I was away on a family mission trip with my wife and two kids at Back2Back Ministries in Monterrey, Mexico. We worked in two orphanages and two poor neighborhoods alongside sixteen wonderful people from St. Mark's Church in Burlington, North Carolina. We helped put on a concrete roof (see picture on the right), build a water cistern, convert a rock-filled patch of ground into a soccer field, serve meals, and love on dozens of orphans. It was easily the most strenuous and impactful week of our lives. To learn more about the fabulous work Back2Back is doing in Mexico and Africa, check out the recently-published book, Reckless Faith. Better yet, please consider a year-end gift to support their wonderful mission.
