Damas de Baxter
The organization is a women’s support group for Baxter. Chapters have begun in different cities in the US and Honduras over the last 32 years. Each one operates independently of the other, but one common goal to assist financially and spiritually Baxter.
The first Damas chapter began in July 18, 1982 in the house of Kate Howard in Nashville, TN. In the first gathering 49 women came together; that number grew to 150. It was centered in the Vultee congregation for many years. If you want to know more about the history of this wonderful group you can contact Annabelle Lawrence: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Damas chapter from Houston, TX, began about the same time. A key member of this group has been its president Anna Mary Thomas. This group operates primarily out of the Garden Oaks congregation One of its members has been given the name the Flying Angel, Mable Charles. As an airline stewardess she frequently flew into Tegucigalpa with aid for the school and clinic.
Inspired by the efforts of the Damas in Nashville, in 1985 a chapter of Damas was initiated by Michelle Aguilar in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, The group was most active under her leadership. In 1997 Fátima Lobo Álvarez, Concepción Zapata, Elenita Castillo and Ruth Bárcenas reactivated this group. For information about their efforts we encourage you to contact: Gloria de Pérez: email@example.com or Ruth de Bárcenas: firstname.lastname@example.org
In February 18, 2007, a Damas chapter met in Huntsville, TX for the first time with 22 women present. Dorothy Price, wife of board member Frank Price, was chosen as its first president. They have worked to organize luncheons and raise funds for Baxter. They have worked hard to equip the classes of the students with necessary materials.

The three groups have done much to improve Baxter and insure that this is the best learning experience for these future preachers and missionaries
