The Eagers: Phil and Pattie, Josh, Abby, Micah, Luke
Phil and Pattie Eager are missionaries in Baja California, Mexico, and have been supported by Scenic Park Bible Church since 2005.
Phil is a brother to Karen Eager and Susan Buller. He, along with his brother and sisters, grew up in Irian Jaya, Indonesia where their parents were missionaries under TEAM (The Evangelical Alliance Mission) for over thirty years. His background helped to form his passion to become a missionary himself. He attended Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, IL and majored in International Missions.
Pattie grew up in the Midwest in a Christian family that placed a strong emphasis on missions. While at Moody Bible Institute, she majored in Urban Missions. Phil and Pattie met while at Moody in 1994 and were married in 1997. They have four children; Josh (2000), Abby (2001), Micah (2004), and Luke (2008).
They serve in San Jose del Cabo, located on the southern end of Mexico's Baja California peninsula, with TEAM. They fIrst arrived in the southern Baja region of Mexico in May 2002, and completed a nine-month church planting internship term. They returned to the United States in 2003 and were assigned to return to San Jose del Cabo as career missionaries after they raised additional support and completed formal language study. In December 2005, they graduated from Rio Grande Bible Institute (RGBI) and in April 2006 returned to San Jose del Cabo.
They will continue to work with youth and will be joining the youth leadership team with another couple and a single adult. Their passion and heart's cry is to see the youth in southern Baja learn about and fall in love with a Savior who loves them and has a plan for their lives that does not include the destruction that results from alcohol, drugs, and abuse.
Please pray for them as they hold weekly youth meetings, special outreaches, and youth retreats, along with their other responsibilities. Pray for the family's transition to a new language and culture. Pray for Pattie as she teaches the children at home.
