To: General Councilors, Society Presidents, and Field Representatives
All of us who attended the First Pacific Conference for Students of
The Urantia Book were inspired by the people, the program, and the scenery.
Quite a number of people from the mainland were present. The conference
was characterized by interesting presentations and good discussions. We
were overwhelmed by warm hospitality and delicious meals. The opportunity
to attend several study groups and visit with many students of The Urantia
Book was most educational, enabling us to establish warm, personal relationships
with the many able and dedicated students of the book on the Hawaiian Islands.
John Hales recently attended a small conference in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
Students from Northwest Arkansas and Southwest Missouri gathered to see
"Jesus: God and Man," presented by representatives of the Oklahoma
Society. This informal gathering of students also enjoyed discussing topics
presented in addition to the multi-media presentation. Plans are being
made for another meeting in the spring.
John also visited the Northwest Get-Together for Urantia Book Students
held in Wenatchee, Washington, which brought together some sixty participants.
He noted the program was planned and executed by those in the region, thus
giving many the chance to gain experience in teaching as well as conference
organizing. It was rewarding to meet those who were fellowshipping with
other students for the first time.

Mid-Atlantic Conference convening in Washington, D.C. on October 28.
The chilly weather we are having causes me to think of the salubrious
climate we were enjoying a few days ago in Hawaii. October, however, has
always been my favorite month; so, I am anticipating the enjoyment of crisp
mornings and balmy afternoons ahead. We hope you too will find time to
relax in the out-of-doors before the winter rain or snow arrives.
