Hello! My Name Is….Derri-Ann Palmer

Posted by Dan Bolin on OA10er @ 10:47




Where were you born and where do you live now?

I was born in St. Andrew, Jamaica and that’s where I live now.



How did you become a Christian and did camp play a role in your spiritual development? 

Through normal church attendance and involvement in Sunday School I became convicted of my need for a personal relationship with God. So after one of the services at church I responded to an altar call from the pastor.

I got involved in camps at a late stage as I had never been a camper but served as a counselor. Serving at camps has aided my spiritual development as I’ve learned much about how God works through our lives to impact each other. It has also opened my eyes to some of the ways God wants to work in my life.



Tell us about your family.

Well there’s Mommy and Daddy and I’m the eldest of three girls.



What role(s) do you have in Christian camping? How have you been involved in CCI?

I’ve served as a counselor and camp secretary in Jamaica Baptist Union (JBU) Intermediate camps for youth ages 15-16. Through JBU I got involved with CCI- Jamaica and now serve as one of the board members.



What do you do on your day off?

When I have free time I may be found watching a show/movie or online reading about something. When I get outside I love the beach and relaxing with friends over a good meal and traveling.



What kind of music do you like? Any favorite recording artists or song?

I guess you could say I have an eclectic taste and it depends on my mood.



What is your favorite Bible verse? Any story that tells us why?

For this season of my life Isaiah 41:10 is a comforting reminder: “Fear not for I am with you. Be not dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and uphold you with my righteous hand.”



What’s the best advice you’ve been given?

Think before you speak.



What else should we know about you?

I love to sing and at times I hum unconsciously.
