Frontier Regional Student Convention – March 12-16, 2018

Dear Friends,

Jesus said in, Matt. 5:16  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.  As we work together in the days and weeks to come, may all we do glorify our Lord and Saviour!

Attached, please find the general information for this years Frontier Regional Student Convention, and our theme “Furthering the Cause” poster on pdf.  The online registration program will be available by the middle of January.  I have also attached a complete newly updated guidelines link for you, and the events list – so that your students may begin now selecting their events.  (They should already have them picked out)

We have 17 weeks from now till we gather in Socorro, New Mexico.  Please feel free to use the promotion video to inform students, parents and staff, and you may place it on your website or use it in any to promote interest, and to explain what Frontier Regional is all about.  (Thank you Brother Leeder for producing this for us.)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNWUu0mLHSs

If you need more information or have questions, please feel free to call or (preferably) email me.

Sincerely,

2017 Jr. Regional Convention Warp Up

Dear Friends,

1John 4:19 says, “We love Him, because He first loved us.”  He did bless us last week, and you also showed your love, and it is easy to love those who love you, — so thanks!

Lots of activities and so many people.  We had 147 students who registered on Thursday, but we fed 306 for lunch that day, so many that we ran completely out of food, but scrambled and worked it out – WHEW!  Many came to observe, and check out the happenings, and everyone did so well, again, – To God be the Glory.

Attached, please find a financial report for the Convention. Last year we bought extra ribbons that we used this year, we had popcorn & some cotton candy & snow cone supplies stored from last year, and just didn’t have the expenses this year as compared to last year.  We had  over $600 after everything was paid for, and will divide that between ACE Frontier Regionals and our Church.  I will use this money to sponsor 2 students to come to Regionals, from schools that have never-ever been before, just to get them to come for the first time.  The rest I will leave in our Church’s account to offset cleaning supplies, and utilities, etc.

Thanks again for all your prayers and help during those 2 special days, it was a joy to host you!

My Dear Friends,

First – Greetings in Jesus name, and thanks for all your prayers and friendship over the years and especially these past few weeks.  My Mom is still lingering on, and I must go back again tomorrow to be with her and my Sister.  My Mom hasn’t received any nourishment in 23 days, only 1-2 cups of water each day, but continues to cling to life, even though she doesn’t know or acknowledge anyone.  Again, please be praying for us at this time, and thanks!

The New Mexico Junior Convention is coming soon, Thursday & Friday, October 19-20, 2017 — less than 4 weeks away! 

EARLY ENTRIES –  Are due in my office by this Friday, Sept. 29th. — I will have someone there to receive them all this week – till 4:30 pm.  (You may contact Samuel Hull at 513-441-9491, if you need to make special arrangements for a later time.)
