Item 1.01                      Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Item 8.01                      Other Events.

First Trinity Financial Corporation’s (“First Trinity” or the “Company”) has entered into an agreement to acquire 480,000 shares of the issued and outstanding common stock of First Wyoming Capital Corporation (“First Wyoming”), a Wyoming based financial holding company, for $1.10 per share.  The total consideration for the purchase equals $528,000.  First Wyoming owns 100% of the outstanding stock of First Wyoming Life Insurance Company (“First Wyoming Life”), a newly formed life insurance company domiciled in Wyoming.  The acquisition represents approximately 12% of the issued and outstanding shares of First Wyoming.  Because of First Wyoming’s 100% ownership of First Wyoming Life, the acquisition is subject to the approval process as described below.  The Company previously acquired approximately 9% of the outstanding common stock of First Wyoming.

The acquisition of control of the financial holding company that is the majority owner of a Wyoming-domiciled insurance company is subject to the prior approval of the Wyoming Department of Insurance.  An acquisition of more than 10% of the voting securities of a Wyoming domiciled insurer is presumed to be an acquisition of control.  On November 29, 2011, First Trinity filed the necessary application with the Wyoming Department of Insurance to authorize the acquisition of control of First Wyoming.  A hearing on the application is expected to be scheduled within 30 days from the filing.  The Commissioner of the Wyoming Department of Insurance will review the application to determine, among several other factors, whether the acquisition would have an adverse effect on the public or the policyholders of First Wyoming Life, the effect on competition, and whether the financial condition, experience, management and post-acquisition plans of First Trinity support the acquisition.  First Trinity cannot predict the outcome of the approval process.

The approval of First Trinity’s acquisition of control application by the Wyoming Department of Insurance, if it occurs, will allow the company to acquire shares in addition to the 480,000 shares subject to the contract described above without the prior approval of the Wyoming Department of Insurance.  First Trinity does not plan to acquire additional shares of First Wyoming at this time.  First Trinity may alter its plan as circumstances dictate.

Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This disclosure contains certain forward-looking statements and information relating to First Trinity that are based on the beliefs of our management as well as assumptions made by, and information currently available to, the Company.  These statements include, but are not limited to, statements about our strategies, plans, alternatives, objectives, expectations, intentions, expenditures, assumptions and other statements contained in this report that are not historical facts.  When used in this document, words such as “evaluate,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intent,” “plan” and “project” and similar expressions, as they relate to the Company are intended to identify forward-looking statements.  These statements reflect current views with respect to future events, are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict.  Further, certain forward-looking statements are based upon assumptions as to future events that may not prove to be accurate.
Many factors could cause the actual results, performance or plans to be materially different from any future results, performance or plans that may be expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.  These factors include, among other things:
The timely approval of the Wyoming Department of Insurance of the application to acquire more than 10% of First Wyoming’s shares;
The decisions of the Wyoming Department of Insurance, its Director and staff and any requirements it might impose in connection with the application;
The continued availability of cash to fund the purchase of shares;
The attitude about a change of control by the management and the Board of Directors of First Wyoming and any actions they take in response to our acquisition of shares;
The risk factors set forth in First Trinity’s prospectus dated April 7, 2011 as supplemented;
The deterioration of the U.S. economy and the life insurance industry in particular; and
Changes in general economic, business, political and regulatory conditions in the countries or regions in which we operate.

Many of these factors are beyond the control of First Trinity. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results, performance or plans may vary materially from those described in this report anticipated, believed, estimated, expected, intended, planned or projected.  We neither intend nor assume any obligation to update these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of this date.
