Palmer announced as Reader Scheduler for Bible marathon
On Thursday, March 7, at the Carroll County Bible Reading Marathon Committee meeting, Adult Coordinator Heath Cleary announced that Deanna Palmer will fill the position of Reader Scheduler for this year's marathon in Green Forest.
Palmer is a member of Airway Chapel in Berryville. She is widowed, has five children and six grandchildren.
As evangelists, Palmer and her late husband ministered to 30 different churches and helped build and design 10 churches in the Ozarks area, where they lived for 42 years. She was first called to preach during the first year of being a pastor's wife and was married for 51 years.
Palmer is very honored to fill the Reader Scheduler position; she believes it's rewarding to see the Word read, studied and applied in our daily life. She has been involved in the Bible Reading Marathon for the past two years.
Like others, she started out by filling a 15-minute reading time slot. She loves the Word and teaching and peaching from the Bible.
"I would love to see this nation turn back to God and see more people be born again," she said.
This year, Palmer first volunteered to be On-Site Facilitator Coordinator to meet the needs of the scheduled readers who will read, be prayed for and have refreshments available to them. Now, as Reader Scheduler this will make her more personally involved with each person or group that calls her to set up their time to read. She asks each person who wants to volunteer to read to call her at 870-423-2048 and set up a time to read aloud God's Word on Green Forest Square.
The 4th Annual Carroll County Bible Reading Marathon takes place beginning Sunday April 28 at 3 p.m. and goes continuously round the clock for 91 hours ending on the National Day of Prayer, Thursday, May 2 at 5:30 p.m.
The Closing Ceremony will follow, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., taking place under the gazebo on the Green Forest Square. Call Palmer at 870-423-2048 to set up your own 15-minute time or your group's block of time to be a part of reading the Bible publicly.
