Christ’s Sufferings


To Hell, Back, and Beyond – A PTSD Journey: When Faith and Trauma Collide by Don Mingo

This is my story, our story, of my rugged path with PTSD. It’s how we ended up here seeing my PTSD as a gift to reach out and encourage others; particularly missionaries.

Through my Valley of the Shadow of Death, I developed B.A.C.K.S. – B.A.C.K.S. is a 5 step approach to helping people deal with their afflictions, addictions, and maladies.

Missionary to Missionary Care was birth through many sufferings with PTSD. It sees God in the Valley of the Shadow of Death.

It realizes that God works in our weaknesses. (2 Corinthians 12:8-10)

Come, take the journey with me. See God in the midst of your sufferings.
