Prayers and Messages for Damian Jean-Baptiste

Damian Jean-Baptiste has been an inspiration to so many of us as he has served as a powerful evangelist and missionary in the Caribbean. His deep love for his wife and children is obvious to all of us who know him.

Recently, Damian has been battling some serious medical challenges and we thought that it would encourage him to hear from all of us who love him. Please leave a message at (720) 432-6436. If you can, take this opportunity to love up on Damian, let him know how he has changed your life or recount some fun or funny story of time together. I know that it will encourage him and mean the world to him and his family. We will be able to take these calls through November 14th.

Thank you. Lin Beaty Ottenweller
