Dustin Lee Chamberlain was a Sophomore at Baylor University, majoring in Biology and pre-med when he left this world as we know it for his Heavenly Home. On December 15, 2011, after just returning home for Christmas break, Dustin was tragically shot and killed during a home invasion. Dustin was actively involved in the MSO (Medical Service Organization), AMSA (American Medical Service Organization), and the Bear Pit (a basketball spirit organization) at Baylor University. He attended Harris Creek Baptist Church in McGregor, TX.
Dustin’s dream was to be involved in the medical field as well as participate in mission trips abroad or at home. Students at Baylor remember Dustin as a mighty man of God, an encourager, studious, and genuinely kind. When students questioned Dustin as to how he could consistently make wise choices and stand firm in his faith, Dustin would reply, “Because I love God with all my heart and I don’t want to give Him less than my best.”
Prior to his time at Baylor, Dustin attended Siloam Springs High School where he was a vital member of the basketball, cross country and golf programs. Dustin also participated in Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Big Brothers and Big Sisters mentoring program, and was an Arkansas Scholar. Dustin graduated in May 2010 with 4.0 GPA.
At 20 years of age, Dustin’s work here on earth was accomplished. And while our family has struggled to understand God’s sovereignty, love, and perfect will, God has proven Himself to us over and over again. Our desire is that Dustin’s Dream will be a successful organization that will share God’s love in a dark and hurting world, and that Dustin’s legacy will continue to impact souls for Christ.
