Man Shares Survival Story With South Mississippi

At some time or another, we all face difficult circumstances in life, but Jamie Coulter has overcome what many would consider unsurmountable obstacles. The Arkansas evangelist was born with 28 broken bones and doctors said he shouldn't even be here, but Jamie is alive and well and shared his miraculous story with the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

"You say you're going to live your life, you're going to have some fun," sang Jamie Coulter for the congregation at Central Baptist Church in Long Beach.

Coulter travels the country, hoping his songs and testimony will give people hope and lead them to the Lord.

"I'm small, and the size, color, that's the only difference in people. What's inside is what counts," Coulter said.

Jamie was diagnosed with brittle bone disease at birth. Doctors gave him no chance of survival.

Sunday, at 36-years-old, he's three feet tall and gets around on a skateboard. He's a small man with a mighty message.

"I do every now and then get discouraged, but I'm serving a God who can get me through any circumstance, and I realize if I serve Him, all things work together for the good of them that love the Lord," Coulter said.

Jamie's wife and daughter help with his mission to spread the gospel across the country.

"He doesn't complain. Jamie is an inspiration to a lot of people. He is the inspiration to me, and I believe that's why the Lord put us together," Jamie's wife said.

Jamie said he knows what it means to be broken.. He also knows what it means to be made whole. He doesn't know where his future will lead him, but that's something he's left in the hands of His Lord.

"There's nothing out there that I can't do. Wherever, He directs me or leads me is where I want to be. I just want his will done in my life. I hope to be able to touch many people with the message God has given me," Coulter said.

Jamie Coulter will be speaking throughout the week at Central Baptist Church for the Revival. You can catch him nightly at 7 p.m. through Friday, October 3rd.
