Steinbach JZible Sntfitute STEINBACH BIBLE Institute ffl 0 0 ■ H £ nmt IscujouiLncj to I in tfiz (joni dedication To the many friends, who, through faithfulness in prayer and other con¬ tributions have made the new build¬ ing of the S. B. I. a reality we dedi¬ cate this edition of the Star. Joiewoxd A modern, red, tile building has become the home of the Steinbach Bible Institute. Large class¬ rooms and better facilities invite students from all parts of the continent. The courses offered by the Institute consist of a three year Bible course, an Evangelical Teacher Training diploma, a two year Christian Worker’s Course and a complete Collegiate education. The teaching of the school is fundamentally evangelical with special empha¬ sis on missions. The purpose of this edition is to present to you a clear picture of activities of the school trusting that as you look through these pages you will be moved to pray for us. With this publication go the prayers of the faculty and entire student body. Statement o Jaith i We believe the Holy Scriptures, both of the Old and the New Testament, to be verbally inspired of God, infallible and the su¬ preme and final authority in faith and life. 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 substitutionary sacrifice of 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 as 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. We believe that Christians are to live a separated life; abstain from all carnal strife, worldly practice, worldly dress and worldly amusements.

B. D. REIMER Principal ' s Message 2 Timothy 2:20-21 “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth, and some to honour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the Master’s use, and prepar¬ ed unto every good work”. Looking ahead into the future, if the Lord tarry, as a student of the Word of God, you are desirous of making the most of your life for the Lord. This is the natur¬ al desire and ambition of every normal Christian. Here the apostle Paul gives us the necessary requirement for being “meet for the Master’s use.” We must be sancti¬ fied, that is, set apart from the world, but also set apart for the use of God. To be set apart or separated unto God and then be fruitful in soul winning for the Lord requires a number of things. You must have the deep inner assurance that Jesus is your Saviour. That upon the ground of His death for sin, thus atoning for your sin, and your repentance and faith in Him, you have received Him and become Principal SYNTHESIS, BIBLE MISSIONS, PERSONAL WORK, CANADIAN HISTORY XI a child of God; that your sins are for given, your name written in the Book o; ' Life; and that you are born again. Then you must let the description of the terrible destiny of the lost as described in God’s Word sink deep into your heart so you may realize the awful plight of those] whom you should win for Jesus. Let th»s love of the Saviour who died for the lost constrain you as it did Paul. And neve: forget that it is not your argument but thc u Word of God, used by the Holy Spirit, tha convicts of sin and convinces of righteous ness and judgment. The Word of God is] the sword, the hammer that breaks thfj rock in pieces, and the seed through whici l men are born again. 3i Last, but not least, don’t forget to liva a life of prayer. Let prayer go before! prayer surround your activity, and praye“ follow up your labor of love. With thy power of the Holy Spirit, yours after yoi • become His, you can go forward in coni fidence, knowing your life will be frui jj] ful, if you follow this advice. You will then be a vessel unto honour, “meet for tl« Master’s use.” a d: “Far, far away, in heathen darkness H dwelling, Millions of souls for ever may be lost, gf Who, who, will go, salvation’s story tellin m Looking to Jesus — counting not the cost?® MR.

" - When Is Education Christian? The Church of Jesus Christ today, per¬ haps as never before, is wrestling with the problem of education. To deny the fact of the struggle is to be blind either to the nature and purpose of the Church or the nature and purpose of unredeemed society which the Bible calls the world (kosmos), or to both. This struggle between the Church and the world in the areas of education is the battle for the minds of men. It is a fight for the loyalties of man. A careful study of scripture makes it completely clear that the claims of Christ and therefore of Christianity permit no compromise. Christianity is a totalitarian religion. It demands the total man, all his loyalties. It lays claim to his physical, emotional and total intellectual life. This becomes easy to understand when one sees that man is a “whole” being and cannot be compartmentalized so that any one part of him lives and acts apart from the “whole”. Man is a unit and a unity. When he acts he acts as a unit. The inclusive nature of Christ’s claim and the oneness of man clearly point out that a Christian’s life cannot be segmented into the secular and the non-secular. His every choice, his vocation, his social and intellectual life have spiritual significance and must be conditioned by and dedicated to Christ. His whole life must be lived in the context of his total commitment to Christ as Saviour and Lord. It is no wonder, then, that Paul, speaking of the Christian’s in- REV. ARCHIE PENNER Registrar THEOLOGY, CHURCH HISTORY, GREEK, ROMANS tellectual life, includes it totally in the Christian’s subjection to Christ. He states he is “casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” (2 Cor. 10:5). The Church, which is the body of Christ, has been commissioned with the task of bringing to realization in the lives of Christians this harmonious Christian per¬ sonality which finds its fulfillment in Christ and only in Christ. To accomplish this the Church must use all legitimate tools at her disposal. Education, in its broader sense, is one of the most impor¬ tant means to the desired end. But here comes the question: What must this education be? The answer is obvious: it must be a Christian education. Education can only accomplish that which it is it¬ self. The end to be accomplished must de¬ termine the means. At the same time the means condition the end. If then Christ in all of His purpose and being must be the whole object and fulfillment of a Christ¬ ian’s life, then Christ in all of His pur¬ pose and being must be the whole object of education. Education is, therefore, not made Christ¬ ian by the mere use of religious phraseolo¬ gy, nor does it consist of a search for proof- texts in support of the theorems of geome¬ try or mathematical formulae. Neither is education Christian because somewhere in the curriculum of a school a com¬ pulsory Bible subject or a religious period Of one nature or another is tacked onto its activities. It must also be observed that there a e not two sets of facts or truths in education, for example in science, one set for the believer and one for the nonbeliever. Positively, it follows from this discus¬ sion that education is Christian only as it is wholly related to Christ. The motives and purpose of education, to make it and determined by Christ. The acquisition of knowledge and skills is not for the purpose of preparing for a vocation or career but for the Christian’s service for Christ’s sake. Relating this to the re- Continued on page 42 10 With Eyes Uplifted The challenge, “lift up thine eyes,” oc¬ curs many times in the Scriptures. Often it is applicable to us today. Moses was one who was challenged in this manner. On Mount Pisgah the Lord said to him, “Lift up thine eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it with thine eyes.” Deut. 3:27. This view of the Promised Land must have stirred Moses’ heart. A view of the joys of heaven will encourage and stir us, too. “With eyes uplifted,” may well have been the motto of the Psalmist. He declar¬ ed, “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord.” Ps. 121:1,2. A look at the Lord Jesus Christ will strengthen the Christian for daily victory. Another challenge for “uplifted eyes” was given by Christ to His disciples. “Lift up your eyes and look on the fields, for they are white already to harvest.” John 4:35. The need, great as it was then, is greater now. May our vision of the harvest field send us out as the disciples were sent. With eyes uplifted we shall see heaven — to stir us, Jesus — to strengthen us, and harvest fields — to send us out. REV. H. G. REMPEL ACTS, MINOR PROPHETS MR. MENNO R. HAMM Dean of High School Dept. The Lord God himself commanded - “Make this valley full of ditches”. God purposed to give the much needed supply of water, but there was a human preparation essen¬ tial first. The valley needed ditches, to serve as containers for the supply that God would gi ve. The dry valleys of our hearts must be made full of ditches be¬ fore God can fill with the needed supply of living waters. Blessings upon our lives must be prepared for. The spade of God’s Word must dig out the works of dark¬ ness in preparation for the filling with the living waters. God has a glorious work to do in every life yielded to Him. A Bible Institute in which God is given the pre-eminence, is an instrument caus¬ ing the spade of the Word to dig deeply into the heart, casting out the rubbish of sin, and filling with the joy of salvation and the knowledge of His perfect and ac¬ ceptable will for our lives. To be a teacher in such an institution is a divine calling but also a privilege. To have a little part in the shaping and moulding of young lives has been my great joy ever since God called me into this ministry. Henry G. Rempel. 11 REV. BEN HOEPPNER GERMAN, PRAYER. OLD TESTAMENT, SYNTHESIS, HOMELETICS God Wondered What k- tremendous statement! How could He ? Does He not know all things ? Does He not transcend time and space? Yes, all this and more. How He could won¬ der, we do not know. But one thing is clear — the cause of His wondering must have been great. Why did He wonder? Isa. 59:16 tells us. He wondered because “there was no inter¬ cessor.” That is, there was no one to pray down the blessing of God upon men, and no one to bring the needs of men to God. Judah had forsaken God. As a result, Judah’s relationship with God was broken and prayer unknown. The Lord so greatly deplored this declension that He wondered. Could it be that God wonders today as then? We believe that He does. Perhaps not because there are no intercessors — there are some — but because of the little prayer response He gets in view of what He did and in view of what He promised. What did He do? He died on the cross to bring us into fellowship with Him. If any thing should move us to pray, it is this. In spite of this supreme sacrifice, so many pray so little. This could cause Him to wonder. He might wonder too, because we do not claim His prayer promises. The pro¬ mises are almost incredible. Observe John 14:14 — “If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.” If the individual be¬ comes a Christian and prays in Christ’s name, he meets up with the incompre¬ hensible term “whatsoever”. At least four times the Lord seeks to impress this truth upon the hearts of the disciples in John 14—16. What is the response on our part? A ready mental consent, but rarely a practical appropriation. The result — pray- erlessness and death of precious souls. “Lord, teach us to pray.” MR. CLIFFORD REIMER GEOGRAPHY X BIBLE SCHOOL ENGLISH 12 Singing is as universal as sunshine — but — not always as bright!! Daniel in writing the 47th Psalm says this: . . Sing ye praises with understand¬ ing” . . . which reminds me vividly of a favorite passage in First Corinthians: . I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also”. (14:15) That is a perfect prescription for ideal Christian singing. Note, Paul says he will sing with the spirit, with enthusiasm, with “Begeisterung”, with real fervor; but not only that, but also with the understanding. Thus the singing will have a universal ap¬ peal. It will be mentally satisfying and spiritually uplifting. Let me add in closing: singing is the only one of the fine arts that is mentioned as continuing in heaven!! There is no more preaching up there; but — there is plenty of singing! So let’s get a good start here so that we won’t have to be in the primer class hereafter! MR. ED REIMER LITERATURE, COMPOSITION His thoughts following the flight of swallows on the wing, an idea was born in his mind. Thoughts were passing through his mind similar to those found in the minds of the Wright Brothers. Why should not he be able to glide through the air too ? His long arms and the barn roof served the purpose. The experiment ended in fail¬ ure but it proved one thing — here was a lad possessed with an extraordinary think¬ ing capacity. This discovery was proved many times in later years for at the age of fourteen his future was opened up to him by his ac¬ ceptance of the Saviour. His father’s early death placed the responsibility of the farm upon his brother’s and his own shoulders. On owning a farm after several years, he spent the summers redeeming land from the Riverton marshes. Winters were spent studying in the Steinbach Bible Institute. In the summer of 1954 he was offered the position of English teacher in the High School Department. His pupils both in his Sunday School class and in the High School can testify to the fact that Mr. Reimer has a captivating method of teaching, his suitable illustrat¬ ions and relations contributing to this. All in all, it is seen, that his motives are aimed at a Godly goal; his aspirations to¬ ward a deeper life. 13 MRS. MARY HOEPPNER Dean of Women CHILD STUDY, PIANO, SUNDAY SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION The Lord sought and found me when I was ten years old, I was saved, “not by traditions received from my fathers, but by the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” The Lord gave me assurance of salvation through various promises of His Word, such as, “He that believeth on the Son, hath everlasting life.” I simply took God at His word and peace reigned in my heart. Later in life decisions had to be made. One of them came after I had dedicated my life to the Lord. The question arose as to where the Lord wanted me to attend Bible school. Then He very definitely di¬ rected me to a school where doctrine and missions were emphasized. Later He led me into mission work and then to the S. B. I. Here I met Mr. Hoeppner, which eventually led me to another decision. After receiving assurance from the Lord, that He would have us serve Him together, we were joined in holy bonds of matrimony. How grateful I am for a Saviour, Who helps me to make life’s decisions. In view of the Lord’s work we earnestly solicit the prayers of God’s people, so that we can be soul winners. Mrs. Ben Hoeppner.

XI classroom, the Gr. XII classroom, or First year classroom; or will we have to resort to the auditorium or the teachers room? It is quite interesting for, “variety is the spice of life,” they say. From Hasket, Manitoba, we have a for¬ mer Bible School student, Anne Klassen. Her cheerfulness brightens the class. She really takes her school work seriously. She enjoys her own meals. She is a Sunday School teacher and a real Christian. ALBERT HI EBERT Steinbach, Man. WILMER PENNER Steinbach, Man. The only student to come from the Unit¬ ed States to attend High School is Mary Ann Goodner. She is an amiable lass, very patriotic if need be, but seems to en¬ joy Canada. Mary struggles with German, but always has her work done. She makes Christianity her life. Wilmer Penner has had more experience in life than the rest of us. He’s been out of school a few years but doesn’t let that bother him. Wilmer drives to school from a few miles north. He’s a sincere young Christian. Our bachelor friend, Raymond Friesen, believes in doing his homework well or not at all. He claims he doesn’t have much time for study but his marks show diffe¬ rently. Sorry to say Raymond left us after the first semester. (Picture missing) ANNE KLASSEN Haskett, Man. MARY ANN GOODNER Henderson, Neb. Last, but seldom least is our class pre¬ sident. One thing wrong with Albert is that he doesn’t need to study in order to know the material. He enjoys airing his views in class. He always has something at the tip of his tongue. Here at S. B. I. High School we learn much from the Christian example of our teacher, visiting speakers and one another. !

All those concerned with the building project can testify to the fact that God has answered according to His promise. God’s grace and the faithfulness of His people contributed to the progress of the con¬ struction so that school could begin October 30. Work was begun in May when an arte¬ sian well was drilled and trucks began hauling gravel. The excavating was done in June and basement construction began shortly afterwards. The architects’ plans were not ready to begin actual construc¬ tion, nevertheless the work was planned by those in charge and construction went ahead. All the tile was imported from the United States and was hauled from Noyes by truck. A disappointment was experienced when due to the amount of time it took to load the trucks, they arrived at the Ca¬ nadian Customs to late to be cleared and were locked up for the night. There was nothing else to do but come back for them next morning. As the work progressed more men were hired and here an opportunity arose for the prospective students to earn their tuition and a few extra dollars. Quite a number took advantage of this, some coming from as far as Gladstone. The protecting hand of God was with the workers and no major accidents happened. New School One worker suffered a fractured foot when a twelve inch plank fell on it and he could not continue work for a few weeks. Aside from this only a few black thumbs and bruised ribs were experienced. A near tragic accident happened when a scaffold broke and dropped four men approxima¬ tely ten feet, along with planks and board.;. Much voluntary help was offered during the last weeks of construction. One day , there were approximately eighty men on the job. A pleasant break was afforded when cokes and hot-dogs were provided. Also during this time much work was done in the evening and many offered help. The young people of the churches, instead of I having their regular Young Peoples pro¬ gram, came to help. It was a blessing to see the splendid support given by so many Christians. A time of praise by singing and prayer marked the end of the day ' s work. When school opened there was still the noise of hammering and sawing going on. I It was a difficult proposition trying to 1 study with all the noise but each one had to adjust himself to the situation and it will perhaps prove a valuable experience later on the mission field. The students of the school feel greatly indebted to those who have made the ne ' v school possible. It is their prayer that God ! might use the Steinbach Bible Institute to prepare and send out more young people into His service. John Toews. Christmas “Welcome” greeted the eyes of friends who came into the Steinbach Bible In¬ stitute on the night of December 21. Yes it was the night of our Christmas pro¬ gramme and the decorations and candles in the auditorium helped everyone to gain a festive air. The humming of “Star of the East” which accompanied Luke’s account of the Christmas story drew everyone into the Christmas spirit. Prayer, music and song helped us to see the meaning of Christmas once more. The Pageant “A Light in my Window” revealed that Christmas was for giving — reminding us of what God gave, namely the Lord Jesus Christ. “O Holy Night”, thrilled us again and took us in thought to that first Christmas night so long ago. “Our Christmas and the Heathen’s Christmas” brought vividly to our minds the meaning and joy that Christ¬ mas brings in comparison to those who know not Christ. The singing of the “Holy City” seemed to take everyone’s thoughts away to the mansions above. Prog ram “Why did Jesus Come” climaxed the evening as the speaker’s message touched our hearts and made us ask ourselves a- new if we this Christmas were going lol celebrate it in the right way. December 22 — Once again we gathered at school. This time our parents and friends were there with us for the traditional “Fa- milien Abend”. We once more presented the evenings programme as on the 21, with the highlight being the message “We would see Jesus”. “Were we anxious to see Je¬ sus”? rang in our ears. During the “Familien Abend” fellowship we learned to know each other a little better and together enjoyed the numbers present¬ ed. Our Principal’s remarks on “Testifying” added a fitting closing to a wonderful day. The happy “Merry Christmas” rang out as everyone left for home or a visit to friends. Hilda Dyck. 40 Dedication Day For years, as students of the Stein- bach Bible Institute, we had been praying God to fill the school building. In keeping with the promise of His Word, God gave more than we asked for. The enrollment of last winter demanded a more commodious building. After much prayer, planning, and pers¬ piration by those with a vital interest in the school, the doors were opened to the students only two weeks after the usual opening date. In spite of the buzzing of saws and the pounding of hammers that accompanied the lectures during the first month or so, the Spirit of the Lord was definitely with us. We were richly blessed in fellowship, and in the study of God’s Word. Then, on January 8 came that long a- waited day — the dedication of the new building. Saturday was a very busy day of preparation for the students. Everything had to be cleaned and tidied especially well. Additional seating had to be arranged and a loud speaker system had to be set up to accommodate in the various classrooms for the expected overflow crowd. After a busy day the students gathered in the audi¬ torium to ask God’s blessing upon the fol¬ lowing day. God did bless richly during the day of dedication. Challenging messages were given by the main speakers, who were Rev. Don P. Schidler, president of the G.M.U., and Rev. J. H. Friesen, bishop of the Rud- nerweider Church. Various other churches were represented. Rev. Archie Penner gave the building report, after which a pledge offering was taken, to cover expenses that were not yet met, as well as further building needs. The dedicatory prayer was led by our principal, Rev. B. D. Reimer. After the service all of the six hundred guests were invited to investigate the en¬ tire building. With the organized guidance of the students this was accomplished in a surprisingly orderly manner. Then a light lunch was served, after which the students rendered two informal musical programs, as the guests came and went. The doors closed at ten o’clock. A group of tired but happy students gathered for another light snack as well as the " tradi¬ tional” Sunday night singspiration, after which we retired with songs of praises ringing in our hearts for the blessings of the day, trusting that all our guests had also been richly blessed, and had anew caught the vision of God’s work through the Bible School as an institution to pre¬ pare young Christians for the great task of spreading the wonderful Gospel of Sal¬ vation. Edward P. Reimer. 41 Summer Activities Work in Brandon Mental Hospital It was the privilege of eight girls of the Steinbach Bible Institute to work in the Brandon Mental Hospital last summer. We started our work with fear and trembling but praying and trusting God to make us a blessing as we went about clean¬ ing, waiting on tables in the dining room, and entertaining the patients. As we worked with the staff, we found that some of them were interested in spi¬ ritual things. This gave us an opportunity to talk to them about eternal things and to invite them to come to church with us. On several occasions they accepted the in¬ vitations and were impressed by the ser¬ vices. We were also privileged to give our own personal testimonies, and through it one girl in particular was impressed. It was apparent, however, that she lacked vic¬ tory which comes from knowing Christ, al¬ though she realized that she could not do anything to save herself. As we went about our duties on the wa " ds we could witness by our lives and by talking with the patients, even though the staff was not to impose any religion upon the patients. Many seemed to be interest¬ ed and some we believe were saved. When talking with them some rejoiced in the fact of a God of love, yet due to their illness this joy was unstable. Others seemed to realize their lost condition, but could not understand how God could for¬ give them. Then, too, some didn’t want to hear any¬ thing about God. Since being in this hospital we realize more how privileged we are that we have Christ in our lives and that He has given us sound minds and healthy bodies. What a pity it was to see so many lives ruined because of sin! If the Lord should direct any of us back, our determination, by God’s grace is to be a pure testimony for Him at all times. Susan Thiessen. Continued from page 10 vealed will of Christ this means foremost and centrally the evangelization of a lost world, with all its concomitant parts. Unless, therefore, the immediate and ul¬ timate aims of education are evangelism, it cannot be called Christian. Further, only as education is dedicated to the interpretation of nature, history and man’s experience within the framework of a Biblical world view, can it be called Christian. This means that the philosophy which forms the basis of education, ne¬ cessa rily must be an outgrowth of the Biblical revelation in all its fulness. Daily Vacation Bible School in Woodlands Is D.V.B.S. an essential phase in the evangelization of our country? I can with¬ out hesitation answer in the affirmative. If we do not reach children with the Good News of Salvation in their young formative years, how will they ever experience the saving power of the gospel? At this time permit me to direct your at¬ tention to the district of Woodlands, about 35 miles northwest of Winnipeg. In the summer of 1954 the first efforts were made by some S.B.I. students and their local church to enter this wholly unevangelized area. This endeavor proved very successful. At the Poplar Heights school for instance, only 5 pupils were enroled the first sum¬ mer, but we thank the Lord for giving us an attendance of 15 this summer. Our next project was a consolidated school wi th an enrolment of 88 pupils in the town of Woodlands. The Lord blessed this undertaking, the very first year we had an enrolment of 35, out of which eight young souls professed salvation. Will these young souls remain staunch against the onslaughts of the Devil, in homes that know not Christ? We can only rely upon God’s promise in John 1028 “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish neither shall any man pluck them out of my Father’s hand.” Although teaching the children was our main objective, due recognition was given to the adults by the means of street meet¬ ings and house visitations. The latter prov¬ ed a great blessing to workers and hearers alike. Truly our Saviour knew of what he was speaking when he said, “Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh har¬ vest? behold I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields for they are white already to harvest.” John 4:35. Edward Friesen. Lastly, the tools which are employed in education, whether things, environment or personnel, must be consonant with the aims, purposes and actions of Christ and His Church. The curriculum in each de¬ tail must be made an harmonious instru¬ ment in the hands of Jesus Christ, for the accomplishment of His purpose and His purpose alone. In view of these considerations the chal¬ lenge to the Church in the area of education takes on new meaning and much greater dimensions. ‘Forward’ must be the watch¬ word of the Church. 42 If 1 II ' 1 jp |: ' 7r 1 ' aff 1 . r I ar y |11| Ji _ _-- f ,., 2 ; L - .. 1 ■ i- - 1 , . • 1 11.

Girls The girls in the dormitory are studying many interesting and varied subjects, but there is one thing that nobody can under¬ stand. Again and again we wondered, as we desperately rubbed the sleep from our eyes, why the hours in the dark speed a- way so swiftly, when those before dinner are so painfully long. Suddenly we awake with a start, as we hear the joyful strains of “Immer froehlich”, coming from the next room. We wonder from where they get all the energy. Beside the regular studies, the girls have learned the useful art of carpentry. Proud¬ ly, we surveyed our self made contraptions to hang up our clothes. We were thrilled to hear a teacher praise the girls for plac¬ ing the nails in the studs and not in the plasterboard; it was unbelievable but it was not merely luck! Since each one has contributed her share in making the room pleasant, it is so much more appreciated. Never before, was the sight of a table, chair or dresser more wel¬ come than the time we saw it coming through the door, and being deposited in our own room, even if the mirror was not quite straight. MISS MARY KROEKER STE1NBACH, MAN. Dorm If we could get a glimpse of each room during study period, we would behold strange sights. One person might be re¬ clining in bed, while the book had un¬ consciously fallen to the floor. On closer in¬ spection we would find that not only the book had fallen but the person was also not too conscious of the activities of this world. Another person might be seen with her head in her hands, as she trys to remember that difficult problem, and the words of the teacher that would solve the difficult problem. Another one might be looking at her watch, anxious for recess — and then the bell rings. There is not a moment to lose during re¬ cess. Almost before the bell has stopped ringing, we hear music all around. It is easy to sing and be merry when study period is over, and assignments completed. The blessed times of fellowship in the dormitory will never be forgotten. Christ has been present with us, as we worked and prayed together. We have been drawn closer together, and closer to the Lord Jesus. Helen Friesen 44 School Diary October 30 — Opening exercises October 31 — Registration Day November 4—Miss Margaret Friesen, R.N.

Occasionally we may hear the remark, “I like being alone, therefore I wouldn’t like to board in a dormitory because there are too many people around”. Partly that may be true, but I find that we do not re¬ ceive our education merely in the class¬ room. Some of my greatest lessons I have learned through dormitory life. In class we receive the theoretical part of our in¬ struction but in the dormitory we have a special chance to put much of our learn¬ ing into practice. It truly is a privilege if we can have room-mates with whom we can share our problems. It is through constant contact with others, that one learns to respect the views of other fellow Christians. One also finds a real place for fellow¬ ship in the dormitory with other students of the Word. In our devotions we find ourselves more closely drawn toge¬ ther, as we worship our heavenly Father. It is in the dormitory where lasting friend¬ ships are made. When I will leave this school, I’m sure I will often remember not only the bles¬ sings received in the classroom but also the blessings received in the dormitory. John Dyck. 46 1. The Office. 2.

To the Panamanians living in the country, a home generally consists of a grass roof, walls made of small sticks, a dirt floor, a few rocks in one comer of the room for cooking, some home-made stools and some have a bed or two. Almost every home has some chickens and at least 3 dogs. The family usually consists of parents, children, grandchildren, an uncle or aunt or some other relative. The people are never in a hurry and never worried about tomorrow. They take only one step at a time. As we enter these homes we are almost always permitted to read a portion of Scripture and pray with them. The Christ¬ ians take it for granted that at each visit we will give them something out of the Bible. The greatest joy has been to see several of these homes now converted into Christ¬ ian, God loving homes. “Happy is that people, whose God is the Lord”. Psalm 144:15. Helen Goertzen.

We have really been challenged by the faithfulness of these workers. In about three to four years of work the Lord has already sought out a people for His name on this Island. January 24 we will fly to St. Vincent. We couldn’t go sooner because there was no room for us on the little sea-plane till then. The people are mostly of a dark com¬ plexion. The reception is good among the national Christians as well as the unsaved. I have preached a few times already to the different congregations. January 26: Today is the second day for us here in St. Vincent. We came here on January 24 at about 11 a.m. We have already seen the place where we will labour for the next few years. Oh that we will be soft clay in the hands of the Potter. Pray for us to that end. St. Vincent is a little different from Trinidad in that it is more developed a- long the agricultural line. The hills or mountains are cultivated and planted al¬ most to the top. Our field, St. Vincent, is an older field. It has already an established Bible School with seven men students enrolled. The stu¬ dents, men and women, have separate seasons for study. The men study six months and the women follow after them with a four month course. Three of the men who are now in third year will next year be graduated from this Institute to go as missionaries to their own people. One of the teachers is a Jamaican. He has been graduated from the West Indies Bible In¬ stitute. Again and again our hearts throb with the power of God working among these people. Sincerely Yours, Gladwin and Jean. 54 French West Africa “For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your ser¬ vants for Jesus’ sake.” II Cor. 4:5. Today is election day. From all directions men and women are swarming into Non- kon to “draw a ballot.” Few of these bush people have any comprehension of the significance of their vote; they are more interested in the first truck ride or in the confabs around the beer pots that this oc¬ casion affords them. But not many miles away the nationalistic spirit is at a peak today as the more enlightened African re¬ cognizes and eagerly accepts his part and power in this “draw”. What will the result be? Will the spirit of prejudice and inde¬ pendence eventually drive out the white man ? ■yTime shall tell, and while we wait and wonder we, too, are presenting a choice to these people. We, however, preach not ourselves or an earthly kingdom, but we preach Christ Jesus the Lord. Today Nydo and Gwanfa, two sincere Christians, have been busy making their way through mauling crowds preaching Him cruci¬ fied. Scoffs and sneers do not stop them. “We must tell them that today is the day of salvation, that today they must make their choice for Christ and against the devil,” they say. With such a burden upon the heart of the African believer we are confident that, whether the missionary stays or goes, the work of the Lord will go on. Join with us in prayer for these souls that many may be delivered from the power of darkness and be transplanted in¬ to the kingdom of the dear Son of God. I Sincerely in Christ, Kathryn Reimer. I Brazil “And the things which thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” II Timothy 2:2. God’s work is progressing here on the Isana river. The Church is growing. There are over fifty villages in which the be¬ lievers gather daily to worship the Lord. Some of these villages do not have any temples to worship in, however, most of them have a small chapel where they ga¬ ther around God’s Word. Among the men that are in charge of the believers in their own village are some very capable ones. They are able to ex¬ pound the Word in a way that is very un¬ derstandable to the minds of these people. There are those that are very good evan¬ gelists, others are good preachers. These men go out teaching in other villages at intervals to edify the Church and to win others to the Lord and to help the weak along in the walk of faith. They administer the Lord’s Supper to the believers in their own villages. It is an important factor for them to come to the Lord’s Table clean, that is, without sin in their lives. When these believers travel on other rivers where God’s Word is yet unknown they fearlessly give out the true Word. One fellow in a testimony told the other Indian believers that he had even given out God’s Word to white people! Pray for these your brethren, pray for us, that we will be used for God’s glory. Henry and Betty Loewen. Panamanian Home J4ome yHU ion Foreign Missions at Home This caption may seem rather paradoxi¬ cal but it is strangely and tragically real. Through the vast Canadian Northland thousands of people, termed by anthropo¬ logists as Asiatics, eke out an existence in poverty and sin. Stretching from the McKenzie Basin to Labrador are found the Chippewyns and Algonquins. Of the Algonquins the Cree are the most numerous. The Cree are in turn split up into another 4 or 5 dialects. While both Roman Catholics and Prote¬ stant bodies have been working among these people for a hundred years or so the general condition is still that of super¬ stition and fear, and a life of sin. They fear drowning lest the body should not be recovered and the soul would not go to heaven. The Protestant Church has given to these people a complete translation of the Bible in syllables but they themselves have become blind leaders of the blind. The older people can still read the Cree Bible but a younger generation is growing up who read neither Cree nor English. To reach these people with the gospel the missionary must learn the Cree lan¬ guage or preach through the interpreter. How would you feel when preaching the gospel and found your interpreter saying the devil when you said God, as was the experience of one missionary. How would you feel after preaching on the lamb of God to find the interpreter stumped when the lamb of God was nailed to the cross and you found out that he had interpreted lamp? How could a lamp die? Truly a foreign field at home which needs young people capable of learning a foreign language. The Jake Bartels. VASSAR So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. Is. 55:2. So I though one day last summer as I sat on the scaffold at our little church, north of Vassar. You see I was bus driver, water carrier and sports director for the D.V.B.S. While the classes were in session I listened to the teachers as they tried their best to explain God’s way of salva¬ tion to their precious charges and, as it seemed to me getting nowhere, I rejoiced in the above mentioned promise of God. I thought, “it is too bad that we have to have our school when other schools close and both teachers and pupils take their holidays.” Then Satan is always ready to tempt us with the thought, “Ah, what’s the use? We are spending time and money but what do we gain?” .... We closed our prayer meeting quickly and rushed to the hospital hoping we might see her alive for she was badly burned. As J we were taken to her room our hearts sank. Was she gone? and then she opened her eyes. “Mrs. Reimer,” she said, and as I came closer she recognized me too. I held up my Bible so she could see it and asked, “What book is this Betty”? “It is | the Bible”, she said. I could see she was not delirious and asked her, “Did you ever ask Jesus to come into your heart, Betty? " She said, “Yes I did, last year at D.V.B.S. " Does it pay? Yes it did pay. Jesus says, I one soul is worth more than the whole ] world. The Otto Reimers. Dear Supporters and Friends of our Child¬ ren’s and Missionary Work: In Ps. 37:4-5 we read: “Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desire of thy heart. Commit thy way! unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.” These verses were in our mind when we began the year 1955 and we can say that the Lord has kept His word when we put everything into His hands and asked Him to guide our way so that His precious name should be honoured and glorified. For the first two months of the year I left Ida, my wife, in charge of the home and the care of the children and spent the! time with Mr. Les. Barnhart in the Nor .hi of Quebec visiting bush camps as a Shan- tyman missionary. It was a great joy to] see the great work that Mr. Barnhart and ] others are doing for the Lord in that part of the country. Many souls have been sav¬ ed there. During the summer months gospel meet¬ ings were held at Vassar and Whitemou hi Lake School with good attendance. Also Sunday School was started at the above mentioned school with good attendance and I great blessing. In August we held D.V.B.S, in a French home where from ten to eigh¬ teen pupils gathered each morning eol learn the Word of God. Since September 7th I have again gone to the camps with the Gospel with Mr. Winslow, an old Shantyman missionary. For this the Lord supplied me with a panel ] truck through one of His servants and others have equipped the truck with tires, license and insurance. Mr. Winslow was given a projector by the Shantyman Christ¬ ian Association, which has been a great help to us. We have seen a greater interest for the Word of God than ever before among the men this year. Over five thousand men have been reached with the Gospel so far. Each of these men received Christian lite¬ rature in their own language which they seem to appreciate greatly. Pray for these men that the Spirit of God will convict them of their need of a Saviour. Yours in His service, A. Gaudreau. 56 Acknowledgement We wish to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the contributions and interest of the churches and business firms.
