I am humbled as I present with honor the very RR Oupost in Texas that responded to a cold call (Email) I made a few years ago about a game called Redemption. Here is the church and outpost from where a Godsend Commander by the name of Ken came from. He responded to God's call to learn, play, and spread Redemption to all Royal Rangers and beyond. The rest is amazing history. Meet Commander Ken at Nats2021!!!

Fast forward to 2021 as a young Commander mentored by Commander Ken bears fruits from Outpost68 as he learns Redemption at STXRR PowWow2021. Cmdr Peter shares Camelot Christian Center as the venue for the 2021 TX State Tournament. GOD IS SO GOOD!!!


TOURNEY PIC MEMORIES!

For the 1st time in Royal Rangers history, Redemption has been implemented as one of STXRR's official EDGE classes! Basic to intermediate Redemption classes will be taught in two 2hr sessions. RAID-style Redemption will also be introduced for the first time at the event by Cmdr Royce! KNOWLEDGE! FELLOWSHIP! FUN!!!

30/31July 2021



God bless Cmdr Damon Barber for pioneering this effort!

The huge success of Redemption at OK PowWow2021 proves that the game indeed fits perfectly into the RR lifestyle. With three states (TX,AL,OK) all pioneering the game successfully at their RR events, we pray and declare all states to follow suit apart from international beginnings.

OK RR PowWow Redemption Photo Album:
https://photos.app.goo.gl/9q3TGcNKHLK62U8s5


Below are pic highlights from the OK PowWow2021. All original pic posting are in the Redemption Discord's RR channel.

Presenting the oldest Redemption player in history thus far - RR Alumni Cmdr Loy Barber A.K.A. Tater Bug. He is 86 years young!!! Loy is pictured w the pioneering OK demo team who are all from a single outpost led by Cmdrs Travis M & Toby C. To left of Loy is our own Travis M who taught Loy the game yesterday.



Redemption activity at OK PowWow2021 began the day before it was supposed to start, with new players from Chi Alpha (who helped set up camp) and a couple of outposts who came early.




As soon as after lunch of Day 1, the Redemption gaming hall was always filled with new learner's and new players wanting to practice more.





Friday night worship service probably catapulted Redemption as a major in-demand activity at OK PowWow2021 when District Commander Sid McCoy blessed me with the opportunity to speak briefly about the game then him following it up up w his own testimonial about Redemption.






The Redemption gaming hall getting filled with a couple of outposts on Friday night after Service which alone boasted a total of more than 30 players in the room led by Outpost 139's Cmdr Chris S plus Saturday non-stop game teaching from 8am to a room full of new players every hour until close to midnight - I am convinced of God's overwhelming presence at the event with His big smile knowing that his RR children have learned His game and will spread it to the ends of the earth!



The whole Redemption family would wish to thank OK RR Commanders Pastor Joe Blackwood & Ronnie Ewert for embracing the game at LEAD. Many thanks for Cmdr Joe making sure that Redemption is pushed as a PowWow2021 event. Super thanks to District Commander Sid McCoy for expressing his love and support for the game not just by sharing his testimonial throughout the whole camp but also for making sure that Redemption becomes a regular OK RR activity for ages to come!

We pray and declare an amazing destiny for the OK RR! We declare an amazing Redemption destiny for TX,AL, and OK as the three states spread Redemption wildfire across the country, the world, Mars, and beyond!!!

And God's graces continue abounding for RR Redemption!

Cmdr Frank F (Houston area) has today organized some Redemption at an RR sectional first aid skills event. He had 11 yr old Rogan (South TX RR Redemption demo team member) and Cmdr Frank's son, Jayce (7), teach some Redemption and ran an unofficial tournament.  The section's trophy for the 1st aid event name even befits the game!


Cmdr Frank was not able to take pictures when Rogan (proudly wearing his RR Redemption demo team badge) and Jayce were teaching some others the game. They were sitting down to play a game & another game was started that they had to join. Pics below show Rogan and Jayce playing against each other.



Kudos to Cmdr Frank for making Redemption part of his section's RR activities! God bless!

Seen with junior RRs Trevor and Tanner M is Cmdr Joe B (who is responsible for making Redemption a major PowWow activity amongst OK RRs). Alex S (Cmdr Chris' son) is another junior RR who helped teach the game at the conference.

Derek T and Your Turn Games was a highlight at the 2022 Royal Rangers South East Regional Leadership Conference.



A testimony that Redemption seeds were planted amongst RR leadership to gather harvest back at their districts and outposts.



Derek got to play with no other than Royal Rangers International Programs Director Cmdr. Jeremiah H who has relearned the game as he already has the starter decks but hasn’t played in a while.


Derek as Cmdr. Jeremiah beat him in their second starter deck game!


Your Turn Games wrapped up the conference with teaching these high energy brothers. They really had fun and plan to keep playing!

Many thanks to Derek and YTG for taking on an RR mission!

HARVEST TIME!!!
