Psa. 133:1, says “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethern to dwell together in unity.” Besides the simple fact that God blesses our efforts at the Frontier Regional Student Convention, certainly one major contributing factor is all of our willingness to put up with each other, at least for 4 or 5 days in March. Please agree with me, that we do have a special bond, (a very rare commodity these days) of working together toward a collective goal – of ministering to these Students at our Regionals! Let me start by saying thanks again for your special part that each of you play in this combined effort. I could go on & on about this, but I know it is not me.
That being said, I have asked Pastor Tim Johnson to be the Regionals Coordinator beginning next year (2019) and to work with me this year as a time of transition. I appreciate so much A.C.E. giving me the opportunity to be a part of this great ministry, I will be forever grateful, and plan to support Frontier Regionals and ACE Conventions in the future, it’s just time for new blood. There are no problems here at all, I told A.C.E. three years ago that last yearwould be my last, so this year I plan to follow through on that decision, — but let’s have a great one this year! 🙂

The Regionals online – Registration program is up and ready to go. There is a $50 Registration fee that must be paid up front in order to use this program (that everyone must use), but it seems to work very good. If you remember a few years ago, I told you to just be patient, and they would work out the kinks, well; they did (to their credit), so just get into it and register your Students. This program does a lot of good things, you can print out individual Students events lists, and a whole School group summary for yourself, etc. Be like that old commercial about Mikey, “Try it, you’ll like it.” We also will have a new Registrat this year, Mrs. Knudsen’s daughter will be having a baby that week (I wished they would have checked with me first – but they didn’t :). So I will need everyone to make sure to really make an effort to make sure to get your school promptly and properly Registered – using the online Registration program. Mrs. Knudsen was very good at her position, and we appreciate her so very much!
As we get closer to the event, I will bombard you with info and emails, but if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email these and I will respond as quickly as possible. Janie and I are going on a cruise from the 11th to the 22nd of January, so I won’t be able to respond during that time.
We will have a Coordinators meeting on Friday January 26th, at 11:00 am, and will provide lunch for them, as we will meet to pray and work out details — (for Pastor Dale Storm, Sister Margo Perez and Pastor Joshua Lehman – I will arrange a conference call with you on that day during this time). This meeting has proven to be a bonding time, and a meeting of the minds, as the Coordinators do so many things, and are so vital to our Regionals. Please pray for this meeting, and if you are in the Albuquerque area on that day, you are welcome to attend, but please let me know so I am prepared for you as well.
Firstly, certainly not lastly, please pray every day for this years Frontier Regional Student Convention. Pray for the unity mentioned above, for our Guest Speaker (which I do not know – yet), for the Holy Spirit of God to move upon all of us through the devotion times & the rallies, for safety, and that we all will purpose to work together to bring our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ glory, during this effort!
