This is a quick report and a note of thanks to all who prayed, and helped me get to our annual training meeting earlier this month, in Raleigh, North Carolina. It was worth the effort getting there, and I feel privileged that God has allowed me to serve with such an excellent organization. I left refreshed, encouraged, and a little more equipped.
Here is a group photo from our time together in Raleigh, North Carolina:
Several of our board-of-directors were in attendance. These men have been providing wise, generous, courageous and humble leadership and they have freed us from many details, so that we can focus on the ministry before us. They are gifts to this ministry, to us and all whom we serve.
It was also encouraging being surrounded by all of my fellow state directors. While we are all doing a similar work in our respective states, it is always interesting to learn how every state looks a little different, and to hear how God is leading and blessing these ministries.
Apart from God Himself, the one most worthy of honorable mention is my beloved wife, who single-handedly held down the fort with our three boys. After returning from this trip, I spent a few days with my wife and boys, refreshing them, playing with them and sharing the blessings of this trip.
If God has impressed upon your heart the great spiritual need existing within the political arena, as well as the tremendous opportunity we have been given, and if you would like to help us make an eternal difference, then we would like to provide you with an opportunity to give a special year-end gift by clicking here. As always your gifts are tax-deductible. May God richly reward you in His presence, for your generosity toward this ministry.
From the Palermo family, we wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
State Director, Arkansas
