310 Acre Land Acqusition



For many years, the Lord has allowed us to lease the 310 acres just beyond our north fence line. Using this land, we host our outdoor skills program, do scavenger hunts, hold cookouts, and many other activities campers enjoy. On this property, we recently updated ourDSCN1300 outdoor chapel and with the help of a volunteer team from Georgia built a stone fire pit. The land also enables us to run a few cattle which supply the needs of the camp as well as bring in some additional income. This land has provided many blessings to us over the years and we are very thankful God allowed us to use it for the work of this ministry.

Recently, disaster struck the owner of the property who lives in Texas and he needs to sell these acres. Because we have worked together for so many years, he wants to give us the first opportunity to purchase the land. Though he is planning to sell the property on the open market for $170,500, he is willing to sell the property to us at a considerable discount of only $105,400. This is an amazing price and because of the blessing the land has been to us over the years we believe it is in the best interest of Eagles’ Wings to purchase the property.

We need your help to purchase this land! We do not believe the Lord wants us to take on debt or use operational funds to make this purchase. The seller has graciously given us until September 29th to raise the funds needed to make this ministry expansion possible. Will you be a part of this effort?


Join us as 1 of 10 giving $5,000; 1 of 10 giving $2,500; 1 of 25 giving $1,000; OR 1 of many IMG_0702giving what the Lord enables you to give at any amount. Please share with your church congregation about taking up a voluntary love offering. Whatever you give, please pray that the Lord would multiple your gift and the gifts of others to see this opportunity come to fruition for the glory of Christ’s Kingdom. Any gift you give, in any amount, will help this ministry continue to grow through this land acquisition. Every gift is fully tax deductible. You can give online at www.ewyouthranch.org or send a check or money order to: Eagles’ Wings Youth Ranch, PO Box 465, Mountainair, NM 87036.

We are trusting the Lord to meet this need as He has faithfully done so many times in the life of this ministry. God uses people. Will you please be part of the blessing God is going to perform?


Former Staffer – Danielle Williams Lee

Danielle died from cancer on April 14, 2015. Though she lived a short life, she lived a full life.

Danielle was a staffer here at the ranch in 2008. She had an infectious smile and a mischievous  personality. The campers loved her and she loved the campers. She liked to play cards and I can remember many a card game on the weekends when there were no campers to take care of.

We have very fond memories of Danielle. One former staffer named Joe wrote on Facebook, “All that I remembered of her is that she loved God and she loved the campers when she was at Eagles’ Wings. Even though it was only for two months, it was truly a blessing meeting and befriending her.”

Danielle fought cancer long and hard. People say “she lost her battle with cancer” but in reality she won. She is now in heaven with her Savior and has no more pain or worry or grief.

Summer Staffers Needed

Samantha is coming back to Eagles’ Wings for her fifth year as a staffer. We  sometimes have staffers who come back from one year to another, but Sam, as she likes to be called, is only our second five year repeater. God has placed a special burden on her heart for the youth here and we are blessed to have her serve with us in this ministry.

The last two years Sam partnered with Eagles’ Wings directly for her airfare and stipend. For many years we before, we worked with a mission organization to provide summer mission trip opportunities for upper high school and college age students. They committed to pay the airfare, stipend, and     insurance for the missionary. We are no longer able to partner with them and are now recruiting summer staffers directly.

It is exciting to see God growing us and opening doors of opportunity. We have  already developed a wonderful partnership with Mississippi Baptist College Ministries who graciously pay the missionaries’ airfare and insurance while we cover their stipend. We are working to develop more relationships like this one.

For all others we partner with directly, Eagles’ Wings is responsible for paying a stipend and airfare. We are helping the missionaries raise funds through their community and church as well as finding local sponsors through our supporters.

Please pray about helping us recruit summer staffers. If you know a college or high school student who would like to serve with us or if you know someone who would like to sponsor a summer missionary please contact us.
