People Educated. Christ Revealed. Lives Transformed.


Hello, my name is Lydia Flores, I´m 36 years old, and I have 3 wonderful kids: my twins are now 16 and my son is almost 12. I´m glad to tell you that I’ve been part of NOE since they first opened the doors on Bucareli Street in 1992! 


A few years later, I was able to be part of the second dream team in the summer of 1997 and be hosted by a great family, the Johnsons. Because of the English I’d learned at NOE, I was able to start working as an English teacher 16 years ago. Nowadays, I specialize in teaching because I've discovered that's my passion.


I started to run a few years ago, and when Brian Overcast invited me to be part of this team, I thought it was a great opportunity to give back to NOE something for what they've done in my life. Thank you for supporting this organization and helping others to change their lives!
