My name is Laura Vander Ploeg and I recently moved to Guadalajara from Holland, Michigan. I serve as the Guidance Counselor here at Lincoln. It is an honor and a privilege to be part of the Lincoln family and words cannot fully describe how excited I am to work with the students this school year. I felt Gods calling on my life while on a short-term mission trip to Mexico at the age of seventeen. Over the years, God brought me to 28 other countries but the love for Mexico never faded. One thing I have learned is Gods timeline is different than ours, but his promises never fail. While not working, I hang out with friends, swim, and serve on the leadership team of a new church plant called Iglesia Radiante.
