Damian Chee was born and raised in a Christian family in Sri Lanka. He graduated from Royal College in Colombo, Sri Lanka. After graduation Damian moved to Taiwan in 1978 and then to Saipan in 1980 where he met his wife, Clarissa.
In 1988 the Chees moved to Taiwan where they became involved in the Awana ministry; first as leaders in 2007 and two years later as full time missionaries. They also serve as Awana Commanders for the Awana Club at their home church.
Damian and Clarissa have one grown son and one daughter who went to be with the Lord in 2005. They are grateful to serve in this ministry and pray that everyone will see that children are important to God. Their aim is to see that boys and girls in Taiwan will one day come to know, love and serve the Lord Jesus.
