For 25 teams and 190 students, faculty, and staff, summer will be a time to serve on domestic and international missions trips. In May, a medical team traveled to Clarkston, Georgia, to meet the healthcare needs and share the Gospel with 90 different people groups who all happen to live within one-square mile. Also, 11 of our string musicians just completed a first-of-its-kind chamber orchestra missions trip to Italy, where they performed and ministered from Rome to Trieste. We ask that you remember our students in prayer as they seek to bring the Gospel to all nations this summer. You can keep up with how they’re doing through the Global Outreach blog.
Recent graduate Stanley Schwartz was notified this spring that he won a Fulbright Scholarship. He is the second Cedarville student to receive this prestigious prize from the U.S. Department of State. He will use this scholarship to conduct research at the Australia National University next fall. Stanley, who graduated with a double major in history and economics, was also one of two President’s Trophy honorees during our 122nd annual commencement May 5. Remarkable graduates such as Stanley demonstrate the core of what we aim for during each student’s 1,000 days — intentional discipleship that transforms lives for godly service, vocational distinction, and cultural engagement.
Cedar Care, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cedarville University, has announced plans to purchase the historic Cedarville Hardware store and convert it into a community pharmacy this summer. This new independent Cedar Care Village Pharmacy will also serve as a learning-laboratory for students enrolled in Cedarville University’s Doctor of Pharmacy program. We are grateful for this opportunity to care for our neighbors in Cedarville and provide an innovative learning environment for our students.
During this year’s spring break, three nursing students from Cedarville were part of a team that treated 2,500 patients in Nicaragua on a medical missions trip with Global Health Outreach (GHO). Their team saw more than 250 people give their lives to Jesus. This powerful missions trip also revealed to the students the meaning of unity under the leadership of King Jesus. Watch the video below to watch highlights. I pray you’re inspired and encouraged as you learn more about this impactful trip.
