Caleb and Jennifer Palmer
Caleb and Jennifer Palmer and their five children made a big move this past year. In November of 2020 they made the journey from Buttermilk, Kansas, to their new Village Missions field in Igo, California. Since they moved, Baby Ketura arrived safe and sound (answered prayer) and was welcomed by Gabriel who will be a senior next year, Joseph a sophomore, Joseph in sixth grade, Abigal a third grader, and preschooler Esther.
Their first week in California they could not hold services due to COVID regulations. However, Caleb was not to be denied preaching to his new congregation. For the next three Sundays he set up drive-in services through an FM frequency. Since that time the church has held regular services.
The Palmers are grateful for new families attending church and are getting to know the area. Two special opportunities to serve the community were when Tim and Gwen Griffiths and another member of the Village Missions Stewardship Department brought food donations to add to area donations. They were able to distribute 52 large boxes of food to area families affected by the 2020 summer fires. Caleb and Jennifer were also able to help in giving out 100 handmade quilts to those in need. The community center was lost in the fires. The church fellowship hall has become the community center which gives new opportunities to serve.
Caleb says, “Monument has had a special place in our hearts since I first began attending while at Frontier School of the Bible 18 years ago. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for all of your prayers and financial support. It has been a blessing to us.”
Pray for Caleb and Jennifer as they minister to this area which is still struggling to recover from the loss of over 60 homes many that are not able to be rebuilt yet; pray for the safety of the Palmer family and their health; pray for new families that are coming and new outreach.
