There are a lot of exciting things happening at Eagle College Elementary School and I am
so thrilled to be even such a small part of God’s plan in Miguel Aleman.
Because of the website, we recently received a call from a young woman in California who
was very interested in teaching in Mexico. We had quite an extensive communication with
her, both via email and lengthy phone conversations.
She is 32 years old with a business degree, recently losing her job due to downsizing. She
went on to get her teaching certificate and feels God is directing her to teach in Mexico.
We encouraged a communication with her and Pastor Ramon and her excitement only
heightened! She has worked very hard to expedite the paper work and will begin her
teaching career at Eagle College on Nov. 21!! Please pray for Lori; we all feel that she is
a perfect fit for this position. Once again, God was so faithful and we trust that He will
be a blessing there.
The Board of Hope for Kids Mexico spent quite a bit of time with Pastor Ramon and his
assistant, Victor, when they came to Holland at the end of October. We met with several
groups in the area who are interested in helping with the structure, the organization, and
the construction of a new Eagle College. The school now has a student body of 140 and
is meeting in the church facility designed for 70.
Worldwide Christian Schools and Hope College are both very interested in the project
and are offering support and valuable input regarding the educational system there. Hope
College is sending a group of students to Miguel Aleman for a week in March to
experience the school and the culture. We are excited about the doors that are being opened
and the lives that are being touched in Mexico.
The building of the new school is becoming more of a reality and we are hopeful that soon
we will be able to purchase the land for the school. Eagle College is truly making a difference in the
lives of the children and their families. It is our prayer that this entire community will be changed through “generations of excellence”.
