Adam Schwab Memorial

CDEM continues to feel the loss of Adam Schwab . His legacy and passions for the Dominican people live on.

A memorial fund has been established to be used to honor Adam and further God’s Kingdom in the DR.

Contributions will be used to support the school in Buenos Aires with expanding space for additional classrooms, secure office, or other areas for meeting student needs.

Your contributions to Adam’s memorial will make a difference in the lives and education of students in the DR.

Board Retreat

The US and Dominican Boards seek your prayer for a time of renewal and learning at our Board Retreat .

Members of the US Board, along with a leadership team from Mountain Christian Church, plan to travel to the DR in October. Time will be spent together with the DR Board in prayer, leadership training, and seeking God’s direction, as we continue our desire to share the saving message of Jesus Christ with the people in the DR.

Sponsor a Child

As the school year is fast approaching, work is progressing to add the fifth grade class, with continued support for the pre-school through fourth grades. This requires resources for a total number of students up to 125.

This is a high priority and urgent need both for financial resources and for prayer. We ask you to please partner with us by sponsoring a student in the Buenos Aires school at $40 per month.

Your sponsorship helps provide resources such as teachers, books, notebooks, chairs, desks, whiteboards, food for lunches, and dictionaries.

You may contact Amy Terrill for more information about sponsoring a child. @ Contributions may be made by mail or through the website.
