ATTENDANCE BRIEF: 14 viewers, 1 demo
COMMENTS:
Fishing for a demo thus far. I have faith that there will at least be an interested YGO player who will sit down and learn by 9pm.

Meanwhile, true to their amazing plan, a bunch of teenagers at the Royal Rangers event had planned to hold Redemption gaming at the 15th birthday party tonight of one of the commander's sons. I was blessed with a pic that the commander just texted me. Amazing! The group shopped for starters and booster packs last weekend. Tonight they celebrate a birthday with Redemption gaming. God is good!


Edit to first paragraph:
Have great faith! Surely, a little before 9pm, a YGO player who finished his round early approaches our demo area wanting to learn the game. I declare a fruitful Redemption gaming future for this UTSA student. He already asked a few pertinent powerful questions on strategies on the starters. God is infinitely good!

Our engineer actually missed to revisit the game last week (See previous post for info on our initial meeting).

Tonight he has made a special trip on his last day in TX just to play with me. It was indeed an amazing experience for both of us. I pray he reconnects with the game for good and teach his 11 and 6 year old. I cannot wait for him and Jay to connect for the first time. Jay, Keith should be in touch with you shortly.

Meanwhile, our UTSA new player has so far been coming back to play a game in between his YGO rounds.

God is good!

Tonight our now regular UTSA player arrives with his girlfriend from college. He presents me with a gift tin that he got online from TLG. While his gf watched while we played a couple of games, she also learned how to play it. I declare a great Redemption player is born!

Our now regular UTSA player has just brought a schoolmate who also plays YGO. Right after their tournament, his friend gets to play Redemption -- testimony that at least one player starts to play the game per week.

Our regular UTSA player has continued practicing with starters apart from practicing with a Nats-worthy T1 deck. We declare much fruit in terms of attendance at the year-end back-to-back tourneys especially from the new players. God is good!

Two new players (Luis & Adrian) who play MTG & D&D try out the game. They would not have stopped til 5 lost souls if I did not remind them that their friends were waiting for them. As always, God is good!

Harrison and Alejandro helped teach 4 new players who currently play YGO & MTG. Three actually started playing for a few minutes before getting called to their next YGO round. One just wanted to read Scripture on the cards. God is good!

So sorry haven't been diligent in posting each Friday. Just like always it will be slow or great when it comes to fishing for a new learner or player. We cast our nets nonetheless as faithful fishers. There will always be a catch.

Blessings to the Dallas playgroup on your Districts this weekend. Love y'all!

Extremely amazing and one of my most fruitful endeavours.

With Joe S. helping out immensely (he was a former Royal Ranger himself), new players were BORN.

Existing players from last year's derby in San Antonio rehashed playing the game and have since been helping teach the game.

I can't say more....it's just over....whelming.

Our last demo day (update):
ALL STARTERS & GIFT TINS SOLD!!!

GOD.....IS......GOOD!!!




Update: Sunday 28Apr2019
Below is a text message from a Royal Rangers commander about two of his youth paying it forward after returning from camp. Keep on teaching the game brethren! Plant seeds. God takes care of the Harvest Time!

Yet another blessed night. Travis.gets to teach a new player George. He also gets some practice done for Regionals. I may also have struck a deal for a nationally-ranked YGO player for him to teach Redemption on-call.

God is good!

Two of our main San Antonio players (Travis & Harrison) practicing for the upcoming huge tournaments.
