4 Stories Of Hope

As 2021 comes to a close, we reflect on another year filled with celebrations and challenges. Our dedicated team continues to expand and our passion to manifest God’s hope and love to individuals with disabilities in rural Mexico continues to grow. This year, we partnered with hundreds of families, providing special education, therapy, and adaptive equipment services. We doubled our residential program, providing a loving, family-style home to 14 children and adults. Here are 4 stories of how lives are being changed through the work being done at Eternal Anchor.

Residential Care

Josué arrived at our home in April. He had spent his life in a bed at a government shelter, barely clinging to life. It’s been a challenging nine months, and we were afraid we might lose our precious boy after a serious case of pneumonia. In order for him to receive the best quality care, we reached out to our international partners for help and we were amazed at the response. With the money raised, we were able to get him the best medical care possible, and after six weeks in the hospital and a tracheostomy, we were finally able to bring our boy home. We were then able to partner with a foundation in San Diego to get Josué dental surgery. Our staff have had to learn a lot about caring for a medically fragile child, but we are amazed at how much Josué has transformed in less than a year. Watching him smile and play is an answer to prayer and we’re so grateful to have this boy as part of our family.

Education Programas

Abraham was one of the first children in our education programs when we opened our special education school six years ago. We’ve watched Abraham take his first steps, watched him learn to read and write, and walked alongside his family as they raise this amazing boy.

Community Development

Miguel Angel is a young man in our community with cerebral palsy and visual impairments. Our team visited him last month to make some repairs on his wheelchair and had the chance to celebrate his birthday with the family. His mother had previously mentioned that Miguel Angel’s only toy was a small ball that he didn’t play with very much. So, our team put together a sensory toy package and were amazed to see how much Miguel Angel loved his new gifts. For the first time, he grabbed different sensory toys and interacted with each of them. His mother was so happy and it was a beautiful time of celebration and joy. Now, our Community Development team is learning how to create low-cost sensory toys and activities to bring to other clients like Miguel Angel.


José Alberto was in a car accident years back and has since been recovering from a traumatic brain injury. An important part of his recovery has been his therapeutic horse riding sessions at Eternal Anchor’s Ranch. He came so far with the therapy sessions and saw how effective horse therapy is that he applied to work at our Ranch in order to help other children and adults like himself. He’s such an important part of our team and it’s been amazing watching him grow and develop as a riding instructor. One of José Alberto’s dreams has also been to own his own horse. This year, friends of Eternal Anchor that were visiting our Ranch met José Alberto and decided to make his dream a reality. At our Christmas party, we were able to give him his very own horse that he can bring home and ride in his free time. 
We want to thank each and every person who has donated, prayed, and volunteered to make Eternal Anchor what it is today. We invite you to continue partnering with us as we grow and walk alongside more families in our state and country. Each of our programs have waitlists of children and adults with disabilities desperate for therapy, for an education, for equipment, and for an opportunity to use their gifts and talents. We have a massive waitlist of children and adults living in government institutions that need and deserve a loving home. With your help, we can do more. We can show each and every one of these children and adults that they are loved.

Your support and prayers are life-saving and a critical component of the work being done in the San Quintin Valley. We are hopeful and excited to see what amazing things God has in store for Eternal Anchor in this new year.
