A big thanks to all of you who participated in the recent historic votes for regionalization in Heartland, Prairie Star, and Central MidWest Districts. I thank all of you who participated in these meetings, all who thoughtfully considered the issues, those of you who expressed a resounding "yes", and also those who expressed doubts and concerns. These were historic decisions. They prepare us to support your ministry in the next generation by creating structures to support you in achieving your missions in ways that are forward-looking, sustainable and technologically smart. We plan this summer to continue the amazing communication effort of the boards that led up to the vote with a series of emails to you like the ones you have been receiving. In the late summer or fall this effort will conclude and we will begin publishing a new, regional newsletter.
Some of you have been asking what is next.
