Who are we?

¡Hola! We are Walter & Laura Hopkins and we are recently-appointed international workers with the C&MA in España!

What are we going to be doing in Spain?

Reaching youth and families in Spain with the love of Christ through Christian education

How will we be doing this?

We will be joining the C&MA field in Spain and serving in a vocational capacity at LIFE International School, helping to further the vision of Christian Schools in Spain to establish 20 Christian schools in Spain in the next 20 years. Walter will serve as the Director of LIFE International School in Tres Cantos, España, and Laura will be involved in teacher training and development. The current plan is for us to depart in early 2022.

Prayer Requests

We appreciate your partnership in prayer as we begin this transition to Spain. Here are some specific requests that you can be praying for:

• Please pray for us as we are navigating a very busy semester that involves teaching classes at Houghton College during the week, speaking at churches on the weekends (and the traveling involved), and trying to prepare for an international move.

• We are planning to put our house on the market in the next few weeks. Please pray for a buyer and for the sale to go smoothly.

• We are in the process of gathering documents to apply for our visas for Spain. We have an appointment at the Spanish consulate in New York City for October 18, 2021. Please pray that we would have all of our documents returned in time to keep this appointment as we are waiting on some things to come in the mail. If the documents don’t arrive on time, we’ll have to reschedule our appointment and they are scheduling four weeks out, so that would put us into mid-November. Also, please pray for a quick approval of our visa applications.

• Please pray that the Lord would provide more families that would consider LIFE as an option for their children's education and that they would be drawn into relationship with Him.

• Please pray for our children, Zach and Eliana, as they process through this big life change that they are about to experience. They are excited, but it is also bittersweet as they consider saying goodbye to friends.

• Please pray for us (Walter and Laura) as we continue the journey of inviting people and churches to partner with us in this ministry that the Lord has called us to.
