Word From Amidst the joy of reaching the successful conclusion of your course at lvlanna, l would pass on to each of you a word of warning from Proverbs 10:5 - "He that gathereth in summer is a wise son, but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causefh shame." The primary application con- cerns the necessity of ap- plying oneself and working hard in life, using the farmer's situation of harvest time to illustrate the point. However, the principle contained in this verse has a wider application in the spiritual realm that I wish to share with you. First of all, the word "gathereth" speaks of in- volvement. The wise person is one who is actively par- ticipating in harvesting. "Sum- mer" refers to a definite period of opportunity. When a crop is ready it must be harvested or it is lost. "Son" represents that person who through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ is a permanent member of the family of God. Only true Christians can participate in this harvest. He that "sleepeth" is the Christian who does not take part in win- ning souls to Christ. The "shame" is that which is ex- perienced by the non- participating Christian. It is the shame that begins in a wasted life now and culminates in the agony of regret at the judgement seat of Christ. I want you to remember that each one of you HAS to be in- volved in harvesting souls for Christ if you are to be a wise child of God. Singing in the choir is fine: being an usher is good: but that is not har- vesting. You must launch out The Dean and get involved in grappling with the souls of lost people. You must speak to people, help people understand, pray with people, weep over people - yes, give yourself to winning souls to Christ. This MUST be your top priority in life. The time of harvest is now. Please do not be a foolish Christian, a dissapointing lvlanna graduate. Get out there and start har- vesting! X ,, jf U .V ew 'R- .,:.5.: .-.. -, . 4 . A rg ....

s I W ord From The President .. ef if x' "We have sown much and bring in littl9HHAGeAi 1:6 These words spoken to the children of israel could be said of many in this country today. How many people do you know that are hard working and yet have little to show for their labor? With the nation lsrael, God had instructed them to rebuild the Temple. This was to be their first order of business after their release from captivity, but they became involved in building homes for their families, providing food and doing other things that they felt were more important, These things were not wrong in themselves, but they should not have taken priority over what God wanted them to do. They did not feel that they were disobeying God, they felt that in due time they would get around to the job of rebuilding the Temple. God, through His prophet, ex- plained that because they worked on these other matters first, the work they did would not accomplish what they wan- ted. Let me paraphrase what he, God's servant, is saying in verse six of chapter one. You work hard and have little to show for it, you possess things and are not satisfied, you take in spiritual water and you never become full, you clothe yourself in your own righteousness and are not warm, and your money goes through your pocket like it had a hole in it. Perhaps now would be a good time for you to think about these words and apply the situation to your own life. God 'has given to you and every Christian instruction to first win souls. This should be for every Christian the first or- der of business. Over the past four years you have prepared yourself for this task. You have the assurance that as you are faithful in doing this work for The Lord, He will bless the other parts of your life. Harvey P. Davis - Qu-f-if

D dication We, the Graduating Class of 1975, praise God for the honor of dedicating this yearbook to our fellow classmate, Gwen- dolyn Johnson. On July 3,1973, Gwendolyn joined her husband Raymond S. Johnson as Mis- sionaries in Liberia, West Africa. They are serving under 523 in AFRlCA Llseam the United Holy Church Academy, which is located 70 miles from Monrovia in the District of Salala. Their day begins at 5:30 a.m. at the sound of the rising bell. Morning prayer at 6:00 a.m., and breakfast at 6:30 a.m. School begins at 8:15 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. During this period they have the privilege to teach the students how to be intellecually sound and spiritually fit. xo Xt, fa' T A W . 17?

Village work is one of the highlights of their work. As they go into the surrounding villages you can see how Satan has the people's mind so bound. They thank God that the Gospel which is the Power of God is able to break Satan's power. To that we add our amen. School is open from March un- til the first week in December. Gwendolyn has made many trips to the surrounding villages. The boys' dormitory is almost completed which they were helping others to build. They are constantlymaking repairs on other buildings on the mission station. The Lord has blessed them with a new addition to their family. They are also in the process of adopting a seven year old boy who was brought to the mission by his father. We praise God for using them as instruments in His hands. He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Romans 8:32
