Palmer started what is known as the Barefoot Tribe, encouraging people to make tiny sacrifices that make a large impact. His goal through his church here in the Valley and his partnership in Africa is to “take pieces of heaven to places of hell on Earth.” Tagging his words after the title of his book, Palmer encouraged the crowd to get out of their comfort zone and to love more like a tribe; sacrificing, sharing and collaborating together for the good of all.
