Jeremiah is married to Tanja and together they are the proud parents of six
kids. Jeremiah was born in Menahga, MN to Mark and Sherry Dwire. He is
the youngest of four children, his siblings are Jesse, Jason and Terra.
Jeremiah was given the gift of his own directional drilling business in
2011. Jeremiah also helps with the youth group at his home church, Blowers
At the age of 28 Jeremiah asked the Lord to save him, and the Holy Spirit
entered his heart. Since his first trip to Haiti in 2012 he has felt led
to do more for the country of Haiti through 7:10 Foundation and other
missions that are currently established in Haiti. Jeremiah was also
missioned to on his missions trip. It was humbling to see the faith of the
people of Haiti, when they have nothing, compared to our faith here in
America where we have everything and every opportunity. For the first time,
Jeremiah really felt the presence of the Lord.
Tanja is married to Jeremiah Dwire, and the very proud parent of six.
Cameron, Emily, Madelyn, Lydia, Faith, and Elaina. She was born and raised
in Perham, MN, the daughter of Dennis and Candy Cheney. She has one very
talented sister Samantha. She now resides in Sebeka, MN. Tanja is a stay at
home mom and also co-leads the youth group at her church Blowers Chapel.
5 years ago Tanja made a commitment to The Lord. This commitment has opened
up a whole new world of opportunities. In December of 2012 she visited
Haiti for the first time, on a missions trip. While there to help others
through the Word of Jesus Christ, she was instead missioned to by the
beautiful people of Haiti. Their love of The Lord and their faith in our
Savior has had a forever impact on her heart. Her hope is that through The
Lord, and this foundation she can help the needs of people in Haiti, and
also widows and orphans at home.
When Sherry learned that many Haitian people do not attend church because
they are embarrassed of their clothing, she started to organize volunteers
to scout out new or gently used clothing of all sizes. Children’s Lifeline,
LaDigue, Haiti, gave these suggestions: “Summer clothing of all sizes for
boys & girls, men & women in the smaller sizes & small maternity. For church
– boys & men wear dress pants & typically a long sleeve dress shirt with a
tie. Girls & women wear either dresses or skirts with a nice top. Nothing
sleeveless – sleeves need at least cap the shoulder & skirts / dresses need
to come at least to the knees.”
Sherry also sews burial blankets for Real Hope for Haiti in Cazale, Haiti.
Anyone interested in helping with any of these projects, please contact
Sherry at sherry@710Foundation.org

Pam grew up in rural Minnesota. She asked Christ to be Lord of her life
when she was 7 years old. She attended Bible Camp as a teen and recommitted
her life then. Pam enjoyed working with children and went to Crown College
after she graduated from High School. She received her BA in Elementary
Education. While in college she was able to travel to West Germany on a
short missions trip. Her most eye opening experience was to see the
beautiful cathedrals empty of Christian believers, and taking part in an
open street survey where most of the participants shared their lack of
interest in a caring God.
Pam met Bob through teaching at a small Christian school. They were married
6.5 months later. Together they attended and are active at Blowers Chapel.
They have two children, Nathan 19 and Hannah 17. In December of 2012 the
whole family traveled to Haiti. This was a wonderful and eye opening
experience that brought their family together in serving a loving God.
Pam has a renewed heart for children, in her classroom and in Haiti. She
looks forward to seeing what God will do through the work of 7:10
