Year Book of the 1950 ★ DEDICATION To our Board of Directors and friends who by their faith¬ ful intercession and their sacrificial gifts have promoted the advancement of this school, making it possible to proclaim the gospel to mankind at home and abroad, this book is lovingly and gratefully dedicated.

II We believe in One God, eternally existing in three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. III We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and Man. IV We believe that man was created in the image of God, sinned and thereby incurred, not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are in need of redemption. V We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross as a representative and sudstitutionary sacrifice for our sins and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. VI We believe that He was bodily resurrected and ascended into heaven and at present acts for us a High Priest and Advocate. VII We believe that all who in faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God. VIII We believe in the personal, literal return of the Lord Jesus Christ to judge the living and the dead and to reward every man according to his works. IX We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust. X We believe in the eternal duration of the blessedness of the righteous and of the punishment of the wicked. XI We believe that every believer belongs to the Bride or Church of Christ and has the responsibility to so live and witness that the interests of Christ shall be advanced among men. XII We believe that Christians are to live a separated life; abstain from all carnal strife, worldly practice, worldly dress and worldly amusements.

REIMER Missions — Church History — Theology Lpzinaijia[± d l z.$ L ag 2 Timothy, 4:1-2. “I charge thee there¬ fore before ' God. and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the quick (living) and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the Word: be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doc¬ trine.” The apostle had come to the end of his life; he had finished his course. He was ready to be offered, the time of his departure had come. But there was still a tremendous work to be done. Men were still on their way to an eternal hell. Christians were still in need of exhor¬ tation, reproof and rebuke. The church was still in danger of being made a prey of false teachers and false doctrine. As the apostle views this from his place of confinement after the sentence of death has been pronounced on him, the burden of human need is heavy up¬ on him. This burden, so characteristic of the apostle Paul, forces from him this solemn charge, “. . . Preach the Word . . .” He calls Timothy’s attention to the fact that he is responsible before God, whose herald he is; and before the Lord Jesus Christ, who had paid the tremen¬ dous redemption price, even His own blood. Who became sin for us, that we might be made His righteousness; Who tasted death for every man that they might have life; Who suffered that we might reign; from whom the face of God was turned, that it might be turned to us; Who took the power from Satan that we might realize the power of God; Who was lowered to the brink of hell that we might be exalted to heaven; Who des¬ troyed the works of the devil that we might inherit the mansions of God in heaven. But not only this. The responsibility becomes more real as Paul turns from the past and present to the future. Jesus Christ is coming to judge. When He will come we do not know; but that He will come we know. Then He is going to judge both the living and the dead, those alive in Christ, and also the dead out of Christ. Then each person will face the conse- Continued on page 36 STEINBACH BIBLE ACADEMY YEAR BOOK 5 Mr. J. N.

The Board of Directors held thirteen meetings during the year to direct the business of the Academy. This business has been that regarding its financial means, the improvement of the buildings, the improving of the educational possi¬ bilities for the students, informing all Christians in the community of the Aca¬ demy’s needs, its work, and the work done by the students who have already gone to their field of service. They are the crown of the Academy. We are well aware that the devil is doing his utmost to use Christians and others to speak slanderingly about any Christian activity in order to discourage the young people from taking up the work to which the Lord has called them. Sometimes we also notice that we are not concerned to uphold our doctrinal pi in- ciples. I am confident that the more you will study the part our people played in the world in the last century, the more you will appreciate these principles. For example look to the educational system of America which is the best in the world. The six main essays on pedagogy were written in 1750, by Christopher Dock, a Mennonite school teacher. (He died on his knees while praying.) Dear people, let not what our fore¬ fathers have done fill our hearts with vain pride, but let us urge our young people to make use of the opportunities offered to prepare for the service of the Lord.

Third Year Class Report As we pause to look back over the past tleeting months of school a panorama of precious memories flash into the mind ' s eye. Allow us to share with you a few of the many blessings that have been ours. Theology — a systematic study of Christian doctrine as contained in the Scriptures — has been one of our most important subjects. Numerous memor¬ able moments have been spent in our study of Eschatology — the doctrine of last things. God’s plan for the future as revealed in His infallible Word, has more distinctly been photographed in our minds and hearts. The Second Coming of our Lord and the tremendous solemnity of the be¬ liever appearing before the Judgment Seat of Christ, (II Cor. 5:10) have grip¬ ped our hearts. Our intentions of living a deeper purer, holier life have also been sharpened. In the light of I Cor. 11:31- 3 2, how necessary it is to unmercifully deal with sin. Whatever we as Christians judge here in our own lives will not be judged at the Judgment Seat of Christ. Anything left unjudged, however, will be judged. There it will be tried by fire. (I Cor. 3:13-15.) What an awful reckon¬ ing for the careless or unconsecrated Christ ian that will be! Our meditation on the Second Coming of Christ has impressed me with the sin of the Church as a whole, myself included, of not looking for His speedy return. Definitely we are exhorted to look for the Lord’s coming. (Titus 2:13). If the majority of Christians were expectantly looking for their Saviour to come any day, any hour, any minute, how much more intensive would be our efforts in the salvation of Satan-blinded, Christ- rejecting. hell-bound sinners. Another captivating subject is Mis¬ sions. Studying the biographies of mis¬ sionaries and certain specific fields we Continued on page 3 8 Menno Kroeker If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

STEINBACH BIBLE ACADEMY YEAR BOOK 11 1 CLASS MOTTO | i - | | For to me to live is Christ Farewell Charge to the Graduates Graduates, Co-workers in Christ: Congratulations! We thank God for you and your testi¬ mony. You have reached an important mile¬ stone in your lives. You have completed one chapter of your lives and now you begin a new one. We shall not go back with you over the chapter you have written. With that chapter do what the Apostle Paul did. “. . . Forgetting those things which are behind ...” Two things Paul did with the complet¬ ed chapter of his life. He made sure thai everything that needed forgiveness in it was forgiven. He left its results and praise with God. And thus Paul made his com¬ pleted chapter of life a closed chapter. As you are now beginning a new chap¬ ter do again what Paul did. It is the most valid procedure for the child of God. “. ... And reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Paul began the new chapter of his life with a purpose and a pressing forward. Christ was his purpose and his very life. Christ was his goal. Write, then, the new chapter of your lives in Christ, for Christ, about Christ. Do it clearly so that they that “run may understand.” Fill it with DEEDS, but use words too. Write it in the love of Christ and with love to your fellow saints. Make it a growing, intimate experience with your Savioui. Punctuate it with numer¬ ous pointings to Christ of hell-bound sin¬ ners. Let it portray the life beautiful; liv¬ ed in the power of the Holy Spirit. Write it with hate for sin and evil, but love, overwhelming love, for the sinner. Write it with rejoicing and in the light of the judgment seat of Christ; recognizing it as your last. And then when it is complet¬ ed expect, by the grace of God, to hear the home call of your crucified and risen Saviour. Yours in Christ, Mr. and Mrs. Archie Penner.

Class For most of the students in this year’s class the studying of God’s Word and other related subjects is not too difficult. But when it says “being filled with the fruits of righteousness” I personally feel that I have not lived up to that portion of Scripture. It requires so much faith, prayer and self-denial to confess Christ by our deeds. We appreciate and honour our teachers for the examples they are to us. Our principal, Mr. Reimer, patiently teaches us the fundamental principles of Christian Doctrine. On Thursday at 9:30 A.M. in our Public Speaking class we look forward with pleasure to hear the speeches of the students, but also with a faint sense of apprehension because of the criticisms that follow each speech. In Synthesis we receive a general view of certain Books of the Bible. We also study Missions. The conditions of the heathen and the divine command “Go ye” are important factors in this study. Tuesday morning after de¬ votions, Miss Ida Twining of Winnipeg greets us all with an encouraging smile and then proceeds to instruct us in Visual Aids. This is followed by Pedagogy, which deals with the laws of teaching, and Child Evangelism. Child Evangelism is neglect¬ ed in most churches and Sunday Schools but more people are gaining interest in this work. Report Twice a week Rev. Schmidt teaches Exegesis. We study and discuss Genesis “the Book of Beginnings” which is en¬ lightening and interesting. Once a week we take a hasty journey to Palestine during our Geography period with Mr. Wittenberg for our pilot. Under his su¬ pervision we also study the German lan¬ guage. When studying Bible History we seem to live with the Bible characters because Mr. Wittenberg has the gift of making history vivid and alive. We study Prayer with this experienced teacher al¬ so. In this study the essence of prayer, the essentials for a well-regulated prayer life, the difficulties and hindrances en¬ countered by Christians are all dealt with. We are especially grateful to him for his kindliness and patience in teaching us the German subjects that are neglected by so many. Those students who found the subjects difficult experienced rich blessings when their prayers were ans¬ wered and they were able to master and overcome the hindrances and obstacles. We have all been blessed as we gained a better understanding and a growing knowledge of the living truths of the Bible. It is my hope and prayer that many more young people will come to the Stein- bach Bible Academy with an earnest de¬ sire to know more of the precious Word of God. Elizabeth Rempel. Year Margaret Harms I seek not mine own will, but the the Father which hath sent me.

Each snowflake was created By Him who is the Light. Who rules the world with justice And truth, and loving might. He made them for a purpose. Each one has it’s own part To play, in bringing gladness To many a weary heart. And still a deeper purpose Than mortal souls can know I think was with His presence. When He created snow. If every little snowflake Was made with precious care (And when each point was finished Sent floating through the air.) To fulfill just one purpose, That, for which ’twas made, Would God make human beings Without a reason laid? Oh, no! He wants us Christians To yield our every will, To trust His careful guidance Obedient and still. For only thus can Jesus His plan for us fulfill. As we do follow humbly Over plain and hill. Though oft’ the road be weary And full of cruel wrong, His love will bear us onward, So wonderful and strong. Till, when He calls us to Him, We know that while on earth. We did that which He planned for Our life before our birth.

Only in Christ can we live out the life depicted by Paul in this verse: only through Christ we have a desire to press toward the mark. Our life in Christ is something not to be trifled with or taken for granted; it is as much a reality as the Word itself. The Holy Spirit is a faithful Guide and has led me into deeper experiences with God. I praise God that He has given me a chance to attend my second year of Bible School. My time at school holds many sacred memories, and since He has done so much for me, the least that I can do is to give my all to Him. Wm. Hanchar.

STEINRAGH BIBLE ACADEMY YEAR BOOK 17 WHY CHRISTIAN EDUCATION? In the earliest days of Protestant sett¬ lement on this continent, the schools were basically those maintained by pas¬ tors of churches in connection with their pastoral duties. A few were maintained by teachers other than pastors, especially for teaching girls. But in all these schools the hornbook primer was based on the Bible, and the main textbook was the Bible. All of the early colleges were founded by churches for training their young- men as pastors. The first nonsectarian college — now the University of Penn¬ sylvania — was founded by Benjamin Franklin and others in 1740, over a cen¬ tury after the first church colleges. But from that beginning, changes were gradually made until now the state con¬ trols the greater part of education. With state control, religion and the Bible have been eased out of the curriculum to the point of complete exclusion. Secular edu¬ cators claim that religion cannot be taught successfully in public schools to Prote¬ stants, Catholics, Jews and the innumer¬ able other religions and sects. They say that in order to avoid embarrassment of some students, the public school must maintain complete silence on controversi¬ al religious matters. Thus they exclude all Bible and religion from the curricu¬ lum. Since nothing generates stronger emo¬ tions than religion, we may agree that the public schools, to avoid disastrous con¬ troversy, should maintain complete si¬ lence on religious matters. This they claim to do. But they have betrayed their trust! In practise they depart completely from this principle! They will not teach anything favoring religion: but they pro¬ pagate antireligious propaganda! The Christian faith is definitely theo- centric, spiritual. Public education is hu¬ manistic, materialistic, evolutionary. Chri¬ stianity places God first; they place man first. The Bible makes man a fallen creature needing redemption; they make man the acme of the universe. Christiani¬ ty places emphasis on the future life; they make the present life summum bon- um. The Bible makes the universe and its creatures the work of the omnipotent God; they make the universe the product of untold eons of evolution. Public education is not nonreligious: it is impious, antireligious! Of the ten textbooks, other than Englsh and liter¬ ature, approved in Manitoba for grades X and XI, general course, one states flat¬ ly that it is evolutionary; three are evolutionary without using the term; one is questionable; five are not evolutionary. But of the last five, four deal with sub¬ jects such that evolution could not pos¬ sibly be dragged into them. Newman Watts, English journalist, writes, “Every attack on the Christian faith made today has, as its basis, the doctrine of evolution.” T. H. Huxley, the peer of evolutionists, is quoted: “Evolution, if consistently ac¬ cepted, makes it impossible to believe the Bible.” This is more clearly seen when one realizes that Neitzsche’s philosophy is based directly on Darwin’s evolutionary theory. Yet it is this devil’s brew that the public schools are feeding students under the guise of leaving religious matters strictly alone! A protest against this antichristian at¬ titude is being raised by the increasing number of evangelical Christian grammar and high schools. Not many years ago, the only Protestant group with any num¬ ber of Christian schools was the Luther¬ ans. Beside the Lutheran parochial schools, there were a handful of rather exclusive Continued on page 37 Why Be an Ape? p. 9 7. London: Marshall, Morgan, and Scott, n. d.

GRADE CLASS REPORT To us the Steinbach Bible Academy is not just another “temple of learning”, but the school the Lord has chosen for us, in which to continue our High School educa¬ tion in such a way as will enable us to be of greater service to Him. We feel privi¬ leged in having the opportunity of at¬ tending a school still based on the sound teachings of the Bible, as so many mo¬ dern schools today are detrimental to the spiritual welfare of the young people at¬ tending them. Our science course this year includes the interesting study of geology. We quite freely disagree with our textbooks in that they state that all geological changes of the past are due to the slow process of erosion, decay of plants and animals, and similar procedures thro’ endless ages. One observation of scient¬ ists that makes the theories of “unifor- matism” improbable, is the unexplain¬ able phenomena of the intergradation of rock. The most probable solution that we as Christians can accept, is that some great catastrophe as the Great Flood, caused the drastic changes that occured. Many scientists today have not only cast aside the theories of evolution, but have found true science in complete accordance with the Scriptures. Through their detailed study of the universe, they have come to realize the existence of a Great Creator — a Master Mind who originated such a marvellous plan of creation! Our hearts too are lifted up in adoration and wor¬ ship as we study the various phases of God’s handiwork in such subjects as chemistry, astronomy, biology and ge¬ ology. We are thankful that the Academy is blessed with teachers who help us to differentiate between false and true teachings — taking their supreme autho¬ rity from God’s Holy Word. In addition to our regular Grade XI Continued on page 37 19 STEINBACH BIBLE ACADEMY YEAR BOOK Launch Out! “Launch out into the deep, Cast down your nets”. These were the words of Jesus At Gennesaret. “We’ve toiled all night”, said Peter, “And not a fish we’ve caught — But at Thy word dear Master, We will again launch out.” They drew a multitude of fish, A draught as ne’er before. The Lord has blessed because in faith They’d ventured from the shore. “Come follow me”, said Jesus, “From henceforth ye shall be Fishers of lost and dying men, Who ne’er have heard of me.” Are we afraid to leave the shore — Afraid of waters deep? Fear not, the hand that bids thee go, Will never fail to keep. At Thy word Lord we will launch out. We’ll fear not wind or wave, In faith we’ll seek the perishing Bound for a Christless grave. The shore with all its selfish joys May beckon us to stay — But we have cut the anchor, Christ’s summons to obey. Oh Lord, take Thou our sinful lives, And all that we possess! Tis only when we give our all, That Thou can’st truly bless. Rosaline Friesen. “Launch out!” Today these words resound To challenge me and you; The depths are teeming with lost souls, And fishermen are few!

We are not to study to show ourselves, but rather study to show ourselves ap¬ proved unto God; so that we will not bring reproach to’the Lord who commis¬ sioned us thus: “Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you . . Matthew 28:19-20. It is our desire to be fully surrendered to God, and to go where He will lead. “Though it be o’er the cold, dark mountain seeking His sheep, Or along by Siloam’s fountain, helping the weak.” Once a week Miss Twining comes from Winnipeg to teach Visiual Aids. It is a study of how to present Bible stories and object lessons with the flannel graph. Miss Twining gives us many helpful sug¬ gestions for getting the gospel across to the children. Exegesis is instructed by Mr. Schmidt. We are studying Genesis. A few of us are taking Ukrainian, taught by Mr. Wittenberg. If, in our fu¬ ture life, we come in contact with Ukrain¬ ians, this will be a help to us. Of course being high school students, our secular subjects take up the most of the time we spend in cultivating ourselves mentally; but we should not let the study c -Rain ' s history, of the surfaces and c of the earth, and of the other things we are to learn, crowd such an extent that we don’t the spiritual things.

Teacher Training Classes “Suffer little children to come unto me.” “Peed my lambs.” These words of our Lord Jesus Christ express His con¬ cern for the children. The fact that His blood was shed for everyone, should spur us on to win the children for Him, be¬ cause more can be accomplished at this stage than when they are older. When we compare the thorough training that is needed for teachers of secular subjects whose results will usually last only a life¬ time, to the usual preparation of the Sun¬ day School teacher, whose work is done for eternity, we see that the proportion is greatly out of balance. It should show us the need of thorough preparation for our task. We had an opportunity to get some of this preparation during this past fall and winter, when Miss Twining of the Child Evangelism Fellowship gave teacher training classes every Monday evening in the Bible Academy. Before Christmas she gave us lectures on Child Evangelism and Visual Teaching; after New Year on Child Study and Sunday School A ' i- stration. In the Child Evangelism e 1 e were shown that children ’e Saviour as well as adults do our responsibility to help as early as possible and young lives to Him for service. Appropriate Scripture verses were memorized and hindrances were pointed out. The neces¬ sity of prayer was emphasized for with out it our efforts would be hopeless. In the Visual Teaching classes, flannel- ograph material and methods of using it were the main subjects. However, we were shown that it was not to be used for entertainment, but to make the Word of God clear, and to help the children memo¬ rize it, and to remember its lessons. The Bible is first and foremost, and the visual aids only a means to an end. Demonstra¬ tive lessons were given and preparation of lessons and material was discussed. To lead a child to Christ we must know both Christ, and the child. The Child Study lessons led us into an examination of the laws governing the nature and the growth of a personality. We were given an insight of the child’s characteristics at different stages of development and shown how his personality might be in¬ fluenced to develop a strong Christian character. The study of Sunday School Admini¬ stration showed us how to make our Sun¬ day School more efficient. Just as a bu¬ siness man wants efficiency in his busi¬ ness to get the most out of his invest¬ ments, so a Sunday School can be operat- Continued on page 37 22 STEINBACH BIBLE ACADEMY YEAR BOOK STUDENT COUNCIL Doreen Reimer Gr.

We thank our Heaven¬ ly Father for supplying our physical needs by giving us the dormitory. As most boys do, we think that eating is a very important part of the daily routine, so when meal time comes around we take advantage of it — three times a day. Another important thing is sleep, which we get from 10:30 P.M. to 6:30 A.M. In spare moments one of the boys might get out his guitar, another his violin and stiil others their harmonicas, and play some well-known Christian Librarians at Work Why I came to Bible School Psalm 73:24 “Thou shalt guide me with thy coun¬ sel, and afterward receive me to glory”. As a school girl of ten or eleven years old it became my ambition to be a Chris¬ tian school teacher. In various ways God has guided me, and it was my privilege to teach school for five weeks as a sub¬ stitute teacher. When I taught Bible History and other related subjects, I realized that my know¬ ledge of the Bible was inadequate. I had a desire to attend a Bible School several years ago, but now I was positive that I wo uld never be a successful Christian teacher unless I acquired a better under¬ standing of the teachings of God’s Word. I prayed to my Lord for guidance, and the way was opened for me to attend the Steinbach Bible Academy. Elizabeth Rempel, songs. After study hours, which range from 7:30 to 9:30 we often gather to play quiet games, sing songs, or some¬ times just for a talk. Wednesday mornings are very impor¬ tant to us all. That is when we have our weekly prayer meeting, from which we derive many blessings. After the day is over, we quiet down to have our daily meditation on the Word of God and pray¬ er, each student in his own room. Thus have the pleasant days of the 49-50 school year passed. Its memories will however, linger on in years to come. Glen Iieimer. PRACTICAL HOUR “Practice, or experience is the best teacher.” Therefore we as student body and faculty gather for a brief period of practice in public performance every Wednesday noon hour — that is after we’ve enjoyed our lunch together as a family. Various groups take turns in putting up the programs. The poster on the bulletin board gives necessary information as to the nature of the meeting, including the names of main speakers, and also the time and place of the meeting to be rendered. Standing up before a critical audience, robs those not accustomed to public speaking of their self-confidence and composure. Unless you can rattle off your speech like the multiplication table, you are liable to get bungled up with your thoughts as well as your grammar. Our English teacher terms it, “thinking under pressure.” Some people seem to be born with the art of public speaking, and are in their element when it comes to addres¬ sing an audience. Others again can ac¬ quire it only through continual practice and perseverance. After the meeting, the teachers and students offer constructive criticisms and commendations which help us to learn by our mistakes. Not only do we appreciate this “Prac¬ tical Hour” because of its educational values, but because of the many spiritu¬ al blessings received through the Gospel messages, speeches, debates songs, poems and testimonies rendered. We trust that these meetings will help us to be better witnesses for Christ. — A Student. ‘ J W« g“.. 1. Those Dishes 2. Accuracy counts 3. Fixing the Pump 4. Outdoor exercise. 5. Teamwork 6.

Unfortunately, however, most of them do not realize that their one and only hope is the blessed gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. In Steinbach, we are very fortunate in having a number of people who are vital¬ ly interested in Children’s Classes. We rest assured that even though immediate results may not be forthcoming, the seeds, which we sow in humbleness and subjection to God, will eventually blossom and bear fruit. With the exception of the one in the Emmanuel Mission church, the classes are held in different homes offered for this work. The attendance has usually been quite fair; some enthusiastic young¬ sters attend first one class at one place and then another in a different home. Since the main objective in these clas¬ ses is to make clear the need for person¬ al salvation, and how this need may be filled by the acceptance of the Lord Je¬ sus, the lesson is taught with this in mind. Though the teaching method may vary with the different teachers, all use flan¬ nel graph pictures to illustrate the les¬ son. A child will remember more of what it sees than of what it hears. Therefore this method is very satisfactory, besides being a novelty for most of the children. Teaching a class of little children is more important than some people think.

On Fridays, after 4 o’clock the men gather for their weekly prayer meeting. Here one of the students reads a portion of Scripture, comments on it, and then asks for prayer requests. It is our aim in these meetings to pray for mission¬ aries and other Christian workers who are active in the Lord’s work and would like us to pray for them and their needs. The Devil is busy ushering men and wo¬ men into an eternal Hell; how much more should we who have the precious Gospel pray for those who are labouring in Satan’s domain and seeking to bring the gospel of salvation to lost souls! “If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.” John 14:14; Christian, do you believe this? Harvey Barkman. The Power Line to Heaven The greatest powerline I know Is one that never fails, E’en though the very fiercest storm Against the line prevails. Though Satan tries his very best To get the wires down, God’s righteousness still calmly meets The Devil’s baffled frown. The only thing that we must do To keep connections good Is praying often to the Lord, And living as we should. Then can we rest with peaceful mind Without a doubt or fear, That God’s own powerline to us Will ever fail us here. Lilly Rosche. STEINBACH BIBLE ACADEMY YEAR BOOK 27 —rr Hto b m y 1.

Qo.ip.el Miiiian R.epo ' iti CANORA, SASK. Peter Martens and Family “And whosoever was not found writ¬ ten in the book of life, was cast into the lake of fire.” Rev. 20:15. For a number of years after becoming a Christian, this verse contained no spe¬ cial reality for me, although I did be¬ lieve it in a general way. Then about two years ago it became to me a moun¬ tain of stark reality. Namely, that“who- soever” includes everyone, civilized or heathen. ‘“Not found written in the book of life” means without spiritual life; and “was cast into the lake of fire,” means everlasting pain and torment, re¬ gardless of popular opinion or conjec¬ ture. With this in mind, together with the constraining love of Christ, we con¬ tinue in our labour for Him, counting it all joy. We are now stationed at Canora, Sask., where we, carry on Sunday School work and personal work. We also conduct an occasional cottage meeting. We trust that it will be possible to render Gospel ser¬ vices at different points in spring and summer. Our special concern is to see the sal¬ vation of souls in this community. Dear Christian friend, will you unite with us in believing prayer? Pray that God may be able to use us and that He may grant a great Spirit-manifested revival in this God-forsaking generation. God’s Word is plain. James 4:2 says, “ye have not be¬ cause ye ask not.” Therefore as children of our heavenly Father, let us ask ac¬ cording to his will and we shall have. Yours in His service, Peter Martens and family. Before the heart of the heathen will bow at the foot of the cross, the knees of Christians must bend before the Throne in prevailing, trusting prayer. —Selected. KAMSACK SASK. D. Schellenberg and Family We are thankful to God for calling us into His service. He led us step by step and then by His Holy Spirit gave us a knowledge of His will. Here is a resume of the work we are do¬ ing. We have the privilege of going into the schools and teaching God’s Word to the children. The co-operation of the teachers and pupils is in most cases very gratifying. We rejoice to think of them as a group of men and women who will be followers of Christ in the coming ge¬ neration. Will you pray with us that the Lord would give us wisdom and know¬ ledge in dealing with children? On Sundays we have two services; one about six miles north of Kamsack, on the Cote Indian Reserve. Here we minister to the spiritual needs of the Indians. In doing this we find that many are under the power of the adversary. Some are turning to Christ; others are indifferent. The other place of service is Verigin. The inhabitants of this district are main¬ ly Doukabors. A Russian speaking young man, who is a Christian, helps along here and preaches in Russian. We also rejoice to find earnest Chris¬ tians here in Kamsack with whom we have fellowship. We have a prayer meeting every Wednesday night in our home. As this is not a very convenient place for public gatherings, we are praying for a larger place or hall to assemble in. Will you join with us in this project? We be¬ lieve the Lord will answer our prayer. There are also countless opportunities of witnessing for Christ in different man¬ ners wherever we go. Dave Schellenberg and family. Don’t pray for tasks suited to your ca¬ pacity. Pray for a capacity suited to your task. — Dr. Max Reich. 31 STEINBACH BIBLE ACADEMY YEAR BOOK With the Indians Since landing here we have been quite busy at learning the language ot ' the Cree Indians. Our work here consists of mak¬ ing home visitations, teaching Sunday School and conducting services. We also help the neighbors in doing such work as: fishing, sawing wood etc. No charge is made for these services. The learning of the language is difficult, but by God’s grace we will be victorious. Studying the Cree language is very interesting. It dif¬ fers a great deal from the English, Ger¬ man or Ukrainian. Knowledge of Ger¬ man is, however of great value. The natives here know a fair amount of English and also some French. There are quite a number of languages being used, but the main languages spoken are Cree and Chippewyn: the latter being- farther north. These people are steeped in sin and shame. They are sick in body and soul with no peace or joy in heart or mind. The only hope for them is Jesus Christ! We tell them that it is not Protestantism nor Romanism that will cure them, but Christ! Oh that you could see the need! You would not just sit and enjoy your¬ self; not just sing, “Rescue the Perishing,” but ’ do something about it! Please pray for our workers who are working in the different parts of Manitoba, Saskatche¬ wan, Alberta, and the Northwest Terri¬ tories. Pray for us that God will show to us the field of His choosing. Y’ours in His Service, John Giesbrecht and family, Buffalo Narrows, Sask. Report from B. C. I was in mission work in Sask. part of the summer of 1949, when my faith in God was tried by Satan and I had to pray much. Sometimes I prayed far into the night until I was willing to go where the Lord wanted me, I had an offer to go to B. C. but did not see my way through. When I came to Steinbach the door open¬ ed. A dear brother prayed with me for a car. Inside of one month I was off, trust¬ ing the Lord only. The work out here is progressing very slowly; sometimes not at all. But we praise God for the open doors we have out here! Oh that we would not miss telling anyone about Jesus, for how dreadful to hear the Lord say we were unfaithful! Albert Toews. Paraguay The M.C.C. work in Paraguay is also one branch of Christian work which we, as His children, are trying to perform. We have come here to serve our Menno- nite refugees who have left a land of tri¬ bulation and sorrow (Russia) to start out anew — to establish a home for them¬ selves and for their families. It is our greatest desire that we may serve in such a way that the people here should receive a spiritual as well as a material uplift. The need is great for both, and we solicit your prayers on our behalf and also on behalf of the colonists. Mary Friesen. An Air View of the Unevangelized Overlooking a vast ' territory of dense jungles broken quite frequently by streams and rivers with its thousands of huts where dwell a people of fear, my heart burned within me as I thought of Jesus who loved them and had died for these people. It would take me a long time to reach just the ones I saw in one minute, and the plane kept on going at a rate of 120 miles per hour for four hours — who will reach all of these?

But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts. 1 Thess. 2:4. STEINBACH BIBLE ACADEMY YEAR BOOK 32 Work in the Ozarks Greetings in the name of “Him who loved us and gave Himself for us.” How good it is to serve a Master, who died for our sins and who is with us always, “even unto the end of the world!” I praise the Lord for giving me the privile¬ ge of serving Him here in the Ozarks. My co-worker, Grace Taylor, and I are in charge of th e schools in a county where the mission has never worked before. Thirty-five schools have been opened to us. and we go in once a month to give a half-hour programme. We present our Bible memory work in which the pupils can learn 3 00 verses for Bible camp, or fewer verses for different awards. We teach them a chorus, a Bible verse and a Bible story, both the latter with the flannelgraph. We are not allowed to make comments on the Bible, according to the law; so we just tell the story simp¬ ly, and pray that the Holy Spirit will con¬ vict hearts and lives. God has promised to honour His Word. Most of the teachers are quite receptive to the work, but a few are indifferent. In one school the teacher timed us very strictly, and reminded us not to comment on the Bible. We had to watch ourselves very carefully, but we definitely felt God’s presence. It has been a joy to hear boys and girls repeating verses to us, when we returned to the schools the second time. Besides the school work, Grace and I have taken over the Sunday School work in Briartown. We have four classes with average attendance of thirty-five. I have the young people’s and adult class, and I covet your prayers, for this is a great responsibility. Five of these young peop¬ le are saved, and the non-christians come quite irregularly. Another ministry in Briartown is to make house visitations. Once we visited an old Indian who was very sick. We sang, prayed, and read the Bible to him. After we had been there the second time, rela¬ tives told us that he had prayed for a whole hour after we left, and that he had been saved. We do not know whether that was a result of our visit, but we praise the Lord for that report. Please pray that the Lord will give the pupils a willingness and joy to memorize verses, and that many will be saved through them. Pray also for the child evangelism class that we have in Porum every Wednesday, that the children will accept Christ through these lessons. Mary Loewen. Briartown, Okla. Menisino, Man. Dear Christian Friends: Greetings with Luke 2:30-32, “For mine eyes have seen thy salvation which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; a light to lighten the Gentiles and the glory of thy people Israel.” We realize it is for all people that the Lord has come, and we are responsible to tell it to all people. “For there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Only through the Lord Jesus Christ can we be saved. There are in this district people of various denominations: Lutherans, Catho¬ lics and many others. Even though some are indifferent, others are interested, and some have really changed and are fol¬ lowers of the Lord, for which we are very thankful. We have two meeting places in winter; the local log church and a cottage at Woodridge, (the home of an English fa¬ mily). We also have been able to go into four schools. The roads are closed to car travel now, but we can reach 3 schools by sleigh. It is a joy to tell the children the way of salvation and stories of the Bible, which never grow old. There is also an unlimited opportunity to witness for the Lord as we meet peop¬ le, and as we visit them in their homes. We praise the Lord for the many bless¬ ings he has given to us! It truly pays to to be happy in Jesus.” Olga and Jake Giesbrecht. I have but one candle of life to burn, and would rather burn it out where peo¬ ple are dying in darkness than in a land which is flooded with light. —Selected.

Nor do I fully realize it yet. One thing I do know, however, and that is, that if we draw nigh to the Lord He will draw nigh to us. He has been very precious to me since I came to Kans¬ as City. There are twenty-two candidates at the headquarters of Gospel Missionary Union now. We ail help to keep the house run¬ ning smoothly. Even missionaries wash the dishes, sweep the floors, and do the laundry. There is a print shop down¬ stairs and some will help to put out the monthly prayer letter, the Gospel Mes¬ sage, and any other printing that is be¬ ing done. The people that are going to South America have an hour class every day Monday through Friday. Our teacher is Mrs. Olson, a retired missionary from Ecuador. She not only teaches us the grammar but also to read the New Tes¬ tament in Spanish. Sometimes she will instruct us in the ways and customs of the people to whom we are going. My first spiritual assignment was a Sunday School class at the City Union Mission. Being new in the city, I was ap¬ palled by the slums that my pupils came from. I was put in charge of the nursery department which had two classes last fall but has increased to four now. I love those dirty little ragamuffins and it al¬ most breaks my heart to see the homes they grow up in and the training they get. Yet the Lord can draw even these to Him¬ self and it gladdens us to hear them say, “Teacher, I love Jesus, too; don’t you?” Another phase of work here is among the colored folks. Only two blocks from here marks the beginning of the district where thousands of them live. There are a number of Child Evangelism classes being conducted and I certainly enjoy mine. They are a class of intermediate girls and they will ask questions. I was telling them one day about their names being written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and one of the girls asked if one’s name were taken out if one were to hide unconfessed sin. Then I was told about a sick woman in the neighborhood who would like some¬ one to read and pray with her. I have been to sea her almost every week since. She seems to have a greater desire for companionship than for spiritual things, but she loves to have people pray. It is very difficult, however, to tell such peop¬ le that they are lost and need a Saviour. She certainly needs our prayers. I have also had several opportunities to go out in a group for services in diffe¬ rent churches in and around Kansas City. The most interesting trip that we as a trio made was with Mr. and Mrs. Shidler to Whitewater, Kansas, for a week-end. We have had several conferences here at the Gospel Missionary Union on the deeper Christian Life. These have brought me to the realization of what a Christian’s life can and should be. I have indeed been richly blessed and my prayer is found in Psalm 27:4: “One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple.” Marian Loewen. Kansas City. Missouri. Permit Teaching Since I came out here to teach I have been more thankful than ever that I am a Christian. I have learned to be more dependent on God. Being far away from home, among strangers, God’s nearness became very precious to me. The children in my school have had the privilege of attending Daily Vacation Bible School. They are familiar with some Bible Stories, verses; and can sing several choruses and hymns. But with no encouragement, and in some cases dis¬ couragement from home, they show little interest in salvation. My prayer is that I might teach them something besides secular subjects, that they might come to see that salvation through Christ is the most important thing in life. Martha Loewen. Moosehorn. Man.

Selected STEINBACH BIBLE ACADEMY YEAR BOOK 35 A Teacher ' s Thoughts Reminiscences A Nurse ' s Testimony Service for the Lord, when done to His honour and glory, by His powerful Spirit is precious anywhere, in spite of geogra¬ phical position. It has been my privilege during my first year in Grace Hospital to find much opportunity for service for the Lord. During my first few weeks on wards I had a patient under my care who was not expected to live. What could I do for this man? Was he a Christian? Would he die in the Lord or must he go to hell? As my heart cried out in prayer to God I remembered my Ukrainian New Testa¬ ment on my book-shelf. This I brought to his bedside. What a joy came to me as I passed that bedside to see his relatives read the Word to him in their own lan¬ guage. And how thankful I was for the Ukrainian Mr. Wittenberg taught me and the Testament my parents had bought for me. Since entering training the hope of everlasting life has become especially precious to me. After doctors have done everything in their power and apparent¬ ly there is no hope for the patient, there is still Christ’s loving invitation, “Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.’’ What a horrible thing it would be to let a person die and know that his suf¬ fering will have no end; but what a glorious privilege it is to point him to our Lord and Saviour who has prepared a place of everlasting joy without suffering and sorrow. Have you knelt by the sick and the dying, The message of mercy to tell? Have you stood by the trembling captive, Alone in his dark prison cell? Have you pointed the lost to Jesus, And urged them on Him to believe? Have you told of the life everlasting, That all, if they will, may receive? Helen Reimer Grace Hospital, Winnipeg. “In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths.” Prov. 3:6. This verse has become increasingly precious to me while teaching. So often when looking back over a day filled with problems, questions and difficult situa¬ tions, intermingled with its joys and humorous incidents, I see God’s directing and guiding of which I had been scarce¬ ly conscious at the time. Teaching certainly is a great oppor¬ tunity. The youngsters seem to take what¬ ever is offered to them. May we offer them only that which draws them to Christ, the Saviour and Friend of all. Mary Wiebe. Pine Creek, Man. “It is a pleasure to write a few words to a school that I love, and to look back about five or six years and ponder over the time I spent in Bible School. I shall never forget those hours of fellowship we enjoyed. They have done much to make up that spiritual foundation which is so essential that it be firm, also in training as a nurse.” Olga Friesen. Vancouver, B. C. 36 STEINBACH BIBLE ACADEMY YEAR BOOK Echoes of the Fall Bible Conference October 19-23, 1949 We had the privilege of having a well known preacher and teacher, C. F. Ders- tine, Bishop of the Mennonite Church, Kitchener, Ontario, at our annual Bible Conference. His dynamic unique and in¬ spiring sermons proved a rich blessing. He spoke on the timely topics: “The Secret of Spiritual Success”. “To thi s End Was I Born . . .!” “Divinely Directed Days.” “Faithful Spiritual Stewardship.” “Life’s Most Dangerous Period.” “Life’s Seven Gates.” “Lest I Be Shelved.” “Calvary A Thousand Years Ahead.” “The Silver Trumpet.” “Rear Window View of God’s Grace.” __ “As the Days of Noah Were. So . . .!” “King’s Counsel to Y ' outh and Age.” “Crux of the World Situation.” “Christianity. Or, Else ? ? ?” Principal ' s Message Continued from page 4 quences of his decisions made while here on the earth. What will be the degree of reward, or of punishment? Will it be eternal glory? or eternal damnation? These decisions depend on the hearing of the Word, and the understanding of it, Mt. 13:19-23. Will they bear much fruit? Or be fruitless to be cut off and burned? Will they enter heaven, or sink into hell? Timothy, it depends on you!! God de¬ pends on you to “preach the Word”; sinners depend on you to hear the Word; saints depend on you to be fed by the Word! So Timothy “Preach the Word: be instant in season, out of season;” “Be urgent whether the times be prosperous or adverse, whenever there is an oppor¬ tunity; and when there is none, strive to make one. The Judge is at the door, and to every man eternity is at hand! Where- ever thou meetest a sinner, speak to him the Word of reconciliation. Do not be contented with stated times and accus¬ tomed places merely; all time and place belong to God, and are proper for His work. Wherever it can be done, there it should be done. Satan will omit neither time or place where he can destroy. O- mit thou none where thou mayest be the instrument of salvation to any.” (Clarke). Moreover, it is the Word that convicts of sin t that arrests the sinner who is in the clutches of Satan; the means by which he is freed, transformed and trans¬ ferred from the power of Satan into the kingdom of His Son. The Word is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth. It is the Word that makes sinners into saints, that creates anew in Christ Jesus. It is the Word that cleanses the sinner and the saint alike. It is the Word that strengthens the inner man, builds him up in the faith and enables for service; that snatches from hell and exalts into heaven. So Timothy, “Preach the Word”. Today this responsibility rests on us. On you and on me. Listen to Paul’s word to you now, “I charge thee therefore be¬ fore God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom; Preach the Word: be instant in season, out of sea¬ son; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” Der Herr Jesus Christus der Retter der Welt Continued from page 5 33efreiung, afpit nudj ben 2Beg, babon foggrn fommen uub fragt nun, luu fic anbeten foil, fie ift gebunben an einen ©rt. $efug inadjt fic frei. s ) idjt 3eit unb Ort, fonbern Oieift unb SBaljrffcit, unb bag ift fcfst STEINBACH BIBLE ACADEMY YEAR BOOK 37 fcf)on moglidj. $n bem ©ebadjtniS ber sa= mariterin fcfjtummert bag SeluuRtfein bon cinem Stteffiag.

SSittenPerg. Grade XI Class Report Continued from page 18 course, we receive instruction in three Bible subjects. One that is of special in¬ terest to us as Sunday School teachers and partakers of other children’s work is “Visual Aids”, taught by Miss Twining. According to statistics children remem¬ ber about 10% of what they hear, 50% of what they hear and see, and 80% of what they do and practice. Since child¬ ren’s work is so extremely important, we should use the most effective methods in planting the Gospel into their young and receptive hearts. We have also received spiritual bles¬ sings in the studies of “Christian Doc¬ trine” and “Exegesis”, taught by our Principal. During these classes we for¬ get our other books for a season, and con¬ centrate our hearts and minds on the Book of all books, the Bible. Not only do we desire to grow in knowledge, but that the wonderful truths may take root in our hearts and be converted into active service for our dear Lord and Master. Auch in der Unterrichtung der deut- schen Sprache sind wir gesegnet mit einem geduldigen, tuechtigen Lehrer. Lehrer Wittenberg wuerde wohl sagen, wir haetten noch viel zu lernen ehe wir die deutsche Sprache beherrschen. School would be too nearly perfe t if it were not for those unfortunate inven¬ tions called “exams”. Generally we f.nd the preliminary fears worse than the ac¬ tual procedures. We hope this will also be true of the Finals that are looming up ahead of us like the Rocky Mountains. May they be ant hills by the time we reach them. No doubt, we will be glad to put a- way our books in June, but reluctantly will we bid “adieu” to the blessed hours of Christian fellowship we enjoyed through the year. May we leave the school as more efficient labourers in His vineyard. Rosaline Friesen. Why Christian Education Continued from page 17 Christian board ' ng schools and acade¬ mies. But now, everywhere Christian day schools, as well as boarding schools, are springing up. Denominational groups back them. Interdenominational organi¬ zations sponsor them. And still the move¬ ment grows! These schools place the Bible in the center of the curriculum, rather than ex¬ clude it. Everything they teach is in ac¬ cord with the teachings of the Bible, rather than in disagreement at every other point. Students are taught to honor God and to serve Christ, rather than to shrug off man’s duty to his Creator. The example of godly parents is reinforced, rather than derided. These are the reasons for Christian education! David F. Siemens jr. Teachers ' Training Class Continued from page 21 ed to get maximum results, A standard which every Sunday School should reach was given. The importance of reacning every child in the community, of training teachers, of providing a graded Bible curriculum, of requiring accomplishments of pupils, and of winning every scholar for Christ was emphasized. Ways and means of accomplishing these aims were suggested. We are thankful for this opportunity we have had to prepare to meet our res¬ ponsibilities. May God bless us as we apply what we have learned, and help us to depend on Him in doing this. John Hoeppner. 8 STEINBACH BIBLE ACADEMY YEAR BOOK Third Year Class Report Continued from page 10 have more vividly seen the dire need of bringing the Gospel to those who know not the Lord Jesus. We have come to un¬ derstand more clearly what the Saviour meant when He said: “Lift up your eyes and look on the fields: for they are white already unto harvest;” and again, “the harvest truly is great but the labourers are few.” Seeing this woeful need we have said in our hearts; “If you want me to go, Lord, here am I; send me.” Our study of Child Evangelism has im¬ pressed us with the marvellous opportuni¬ ty, yet tremendous responsibility of win- n ; ng children to Christ before they drift into the world. It is so much easier to win them now. Besides the definite state¬ ments in the Bible, the permanent re¬ sults of tlrs phase of evangelism also in¬ dicates that it must be Scr iptural. Accord¬ ing to statistics a smaller percentage of child converts fall away than of grown¬ ups, and a larger percentage go to fill the gaps in unevangelized fields. Exeges ' s, a thorough study of certain selected books of the Bible, has aided to personally discover, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, more of the inex- haustable truths of God’s Word. Another subject of interest and im¬ portance has been Mennonite History. It has given us a more comprehensive view of the trials, temptations, discour¬ agements and victories experienced by our forefathers. Church History is another invaluable study. Seeing how the church developed and how heresies crept in, we have again been impressed with the imperativeness of going to the Bible alone as our final court of appeal; not to man’s opinions. Of great benefit has been the study of the reasons why Christianity spread so rapidly at the beginning. Some of these reasons were: they expected the speedy return of the Lord: they were convinced that all those without Christ are lost; they lived pure consecrated lives; and last but not least, God was with them. These dynamic qualities are lacking to a large extent in present day Christianity. That is why the major part of the Church is lukewarm and practically dead today. Not to be left unmentioned are the weekly prayer meetings. Blessed minutes have been spent before the throne of grace. Together we expressed our hearts desires to Him. whose ears are ever open to the cry of ' the soul, trusting in His faithfulness and hungering for His righteousness. Truly we have been feasting on the Word of God. A greater responsibility now rests upon us. Will we be faithful with our trust? Lord, by Thy grace we will. Benny Eidse CHILDREN ' S CLASSES Continued from page 26 you are about to say, may be something not quite reaching the standard of hon¬ ouring the Living God. You feel as though you have no strength whatsoever, and in¬ voluntarily your heart cries out, “Lord, teach me what to say”. Each child has a soul; if you fail to proclaim to it the gos¬ pel of redemption it may go out into the world, unwarned of the many snares and pitfalls so carefully laid for its destruc¬ tion. Oh. that the Lord might open our eyes, that we might see the great need there is to get the little children to follow the Master who guides safely and true. — A Student. What Will Your Harvest Be ? Sowing the seed by the wayside high, Sowing the seed on the rocks to die, Sowing the seed where the thorns will spoil Sowing the seed in the fertile soil, O’ what shall the harvest be? Sowing the seed with an aching heart, Sowing the seed while the teardrops start, Sowing in hope till the reapers come, Gladly together the harvest home; O’ what shall the harvest be? Sown in darkness or sown in light, Sown in our weakness or sown in our might, Gathered in. time or eternity, Sure, yes, sure will the harvest be. — Christian Laymen’s Tract League.
