In view of present world conditions it behooves every sincere Christian to become more firmly rooted and grounded in the Word of God, the only message that can bring lasting peace and solve the complex problems of this day and age. Could this be the last decade to complete the unfinished task of evangelization which still lies before the Christian Church? It is the sincere prayer of the yearbook staff, faculty, and students that the 1962 STAR will present to each individual leafing through these pages an untainted picture of the year ' s activities at the Steinbach Bible Institute- curricular and extracurricular. May this annual also serve as a constant reminder to uphold those in prayer who are preparing for more effective Christian service. The staff of the Yearbook Committee wishes to acknowledge that the division page pictures in this book appear by the courtesy of the Manitoba Department of Industry and Commerce. DEDICATION To you, Mr. Reimer, who have these many years, as the principal of the Steinbach Bible Institute, faithfully guided us in our studies, our activities, and our Christian walk, we sincerely dedicate the ' 62 STAR with deep appreciation. Statement of Jfaitf) We believe — the Holy Scripture, both of the Old and the New Testament, to be verbally inspired of God, infallible, and the supreme and final authority in faith and life. II — in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Ill — that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, bom of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true Man. VI — 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. Consequently, all human beings are bom with a sinful nature and are in need of the new birth. V — that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross as our representative and substitutionary sacrifice for our sins and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. VI — the Lord Jesus Christ, was bodily resurrected and ascended into heaven and at present acts for us as High Priest and Advocate. VII — that all who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ are bom again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God. VIII — 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 — in the bodily resurrection of all men — the saints to everlasting joy and bliss, the lost to everlasting conscious torment. X — that Christians are to live separated from the world, abstain from all carnal strife, worldly practice, worldly dress and worldly amusements. XI — that our generation is responsible for the complete evangelization of this generation; that every believer carries part of this responsibility and should make the reaching of this objective his life’s work. ADMINISTRATION BOARD OF DIRECTORS FRANK D. REIMER HENRY KORNELSEN RICHARD REIMER ABE F. PENNER GEORGE K. REIMER PETER J. B. REIMER (picture missing) MILTON FAST REVEREND B. D. REIMER, Principal PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE THE CHRISTIAN--A PARTNER OF GOD One of the most glorious privileges the Christian receives from his Saviour is the responsibility of partnership with God. It is quite clear from such passages as I Cor. 3:9; Matt. 11:28, 29, Gal. 2:20, that it is with salvation that God offers the privilege and responsibility of partnership. Partnership speaks of an equality, -of standing, of investment, of responsi¬ bilities, and of sharing both the rewards and the losses. A partnership is not an association of compulsion but a voluntary association. The success and the rewards of this partnership with God are dependent upon the faithfulness of each partner. God is faithful, we can depend upon Him. He who has given salvation through His Son Jesus Christ has also planned this partnership in every detail. Are you faithful to this partnership? God desires that the partners whom He has chosen should be " hundred percenters " . At your disposal are all the resources of God, which, if appropriated by you will make this partnership successful. But, alas, often God receives from His partners only partial cooperation and luke-warm application. They seek their own interests, not the interests of the partnership. Only to the extent to which the partner appropriates and uses the re¬ sources of God, in the building of His Kingdom, can he be blessed. The reward or loss is then dependent upon each Christian ' s own faithfulness. What will your partnership with God produce? Can He depend on you? REVEREND BEN HOEPPNER Bible Department Mr. Hoeppner, a native of southern Manitoba, is our authority on the German language. He studied at the M. B. B. C. in Winnipeg, but a bout with tuber¬ culosis delayed his graduation for one year until 1954. In the fall of that year he joined the S. B. I. staff. Two important milestones reached in 1955 were--his or¬ dination to the ministry of the E. M. M. C. and his marriage to the former Mary Loewen. The Hoeppners spend their summers in the U. S.A. where Mr. Hoeppner attends Goshen or Wheaton Colleges. Mr. Hoeppner, by his efficiency, accomplishes much. Be¬ sides regular teaching duties in the Bible and High School, he takes charge of the library, and also has several speaking engagements each week. He expects students to work as hard as he does, and sees to it that the credits in his courses are not mere gifts. Mr. Hoeppner ' s deep spiritual concern evokes respect from all who know him. MR. MENNO HAMM High School Department Mr. Hamm, a ' 50 graduate of the MacGregor High School, graduated from the Steinbach Bible Institute in ' 54. He has almost com¬ pleted fourth year of science and part of Education I at the University of Manitoba. In Christian service, Mr. Hamm has been on the faculty of the S. B. I. since 1953; is an active participant in Evangelistic and Deputation work. Vaca¬ tion Bible School, Good News Clubs, visitations and services. He is also an indispensable yearbook com¬ mittee advisor. MR. HENRY HIEBERT Music Department Decisions made to¬ ward the end of 1951 changed the course of life for Mr. Hiebert. At that time he decided to leave custom truck¬ ing and enter the Steinbach Bible Institute. Diligence was rewarded and he graduated from the Bible Department in 1954. Following a year of public school teaching he returned to take Grade XII. In the fall of 1957 he married Loraine Neufeld and they spent their first year of marriage teach¬ ing in a remote Indian Community. Subsequently, Mr. Hiebert has studied at Goshen College and the University of Minnesota. In 1959 he joined the staff of the S.B.I. , assuming responsibility of the newly created Music Department. That he is a lover of music is evident in that he was the first tenor of three different versions of the King ' s Krusaders Quartet. In this capacity he has devoted much time to travelling in deputation for the Institute. As a teacher of music he shows interest and enthusiasm for his work. This he expects from his students also. REVEREND BEN EIDSE Bible Department Mr. Eidse, our dean and Theology, Missions, and Psychology instructor, is well qualified for his posi¬ tion. To qualify for his dean-ship he has studied " theoretical " psychology at Goshen College where he graduated with a B. A. degree in 1959, and practised " applied " psychology on his four girls. In 1960 he graduated from Wheaton College with an M. A. in Bible. His experience as a missionary, first in Western Canada (1950-53), and then in the Congo (1950-53 and the summer of 1961) proves to be a great asset in the mis¬ sions department of our school. MISS DOREEN REIMER High School Department Miss Reimer, our principal ' s daughter, became a Christian when she was ten, and has faithfully served the Lord since that time. She received her secondary education and Bible training at the Steinbach Bible In¬ stitute. Besides studying at the University of Manitoba and at Wheaton College, she attended Goshen College where she received the B.A. degree in 1961. Miss Reimer, who is also a graduate of the Manitoba Teachers ' College, taught in Manitoba and Ontario public schools for five years before she joined the S.B.I. staff in 1959. Having her Grade X in voice from the Toronto Conservatory of Music, she can say with the Psalmist, " With my song I will praise Him. " MISS LENA DUECK High School Department Miss Lena Dueck belongs to a family of tall people. Since the age of twelve she has followed the high and noble calling of a Christian. Lofty ideals and a stead¬ fast ambition have taken her to the Mennonite Collegiate Institute and the Winkler High School for Grades XI and XII, respectively; then to our own S. B, I. for Bible training; to Goshen College for the baccalaureate degree; and, finally, to Winona Lake School of Theology for post-graduate work in the field of Christian Education. The aspirations of many have been elevated by her kindness and Christian sincerity. MISS HELEN HARMS Secretary STAFF MR. JAC N. DYCK Caretaker MRS. P. P.

The time to go forth has come. It is well that we take heed to ourselves for, like Joshua, we have not passed this way hereto¬ fore. We entered Bible school three years ago -- not without misgiving. Some of us feared the studies. Not having attend¬ ed school for a number of years, we were a bit rusty. Our classmates were strange. The close confines of the dormitory seem¬ ed irksome. Now this is past. The time has been well spent. We have learned God ' s plan and purpose as it is revealed in His Word, the Bible. Those who seemed so strange to us have become our cherished friends. As the time spent in the school recedes into the past we yearn greatly to retrieve it, -- to live it over. But, alas, we can not. We would correct the mistakes made, and utilize to the ut¬ most time foolishly used. We long for those special moments spent in class when the biblical narrative became very real, when the classroom was trans¬ formed. We are thankful to those who have made our studies possible. I personally express my thanks to you, the teaching staff in that you have conferred this honor on me, that I should represent the graduating class in this way. It is an honor I do not deserve. We offer thanks to our parents who have led us in the old ways from childhood. Who taught us the same Gospel that our Lord commanded to be taught in all the world. Who encouraged us when we were disheartened. To our teachers, who opened the Word to us and illustrated it with their life. To the board, who, though unnoticed by most, made these years possible. To the others of the staff and those connected with the school who served us faithfully. To you we ac¬ knowledge the debt we cannot repay, ex¬ cept with a life dedicated to God. We look to the future with high aspira¬ tions. This is an age of opportunity. The population of the world is greater than ever before. The relative number of Christians is smaller. Scores of mil¬ lions have never heard the Gospel mes¬ sage. Millions have hardened themselves against it. The task is great. This is an age of challenge. We are ready to endure, to suffer, to die. Each one will take his post, at home, or the missionfield, as the Lord commands. We shall face ridicule unmoved. We will not betray our posts. We will not betray our call¬ ing. We will not deny our Lord. LUCILLE WIENS Coaldale, Alta.

It was a day of flurry and excitement, of running to and fro, up the stairs, and down. As soon as classes for the day ■were over, packing was begun, and it didn ' t take long till girls -- in groups, in pairs, alone -- were seen taking off with suitcases, bedrolls, and more jtsuitcases, with books, shoes, and what shave you. The boys kindly assisted, Staking down bunks and carrying furni¬ ture. Finally everything was empty, and blissfully quiet. But just for a few minutes, for as soon as the rooms had been inspected, the confusion and tumult Istarted all over again! This time, how¬ ever, it was caused not by the girls, but by the boys, for they too had been gwaiting impatiently for the moment when they would have more room. So, where before the girls moved down and out, the boys moved up and in! Back in the new dormitory -- fewhat a mess! The halls and rooms were cluttered with a conglomeration of suit¬ cases, chiffoniers, bedding, and stacks of mattresses. With much work and patience all the treasured personal be¬ longings were sorted out and arranged according to individual taste. As things began to take shape, new smiles again ■brightened the strained faces, for the new place was really much better and (Snore roomy than the old. Soon, too, each learned to fellowship with and love her new room-mates as much as the old. EXAMS! Exams. The dictionary tells lus they are a test of knowledge, but ■ among students we find varied concep¬ tions of the word. Some regard it with fear, especially when the school term idraws to a close. Others, not so con¬ cerned, think of exams in terms of the last two weeks in June. To many, and we hope to all at S.B.I., exams offer opportunities to reach new goals in life for the efforts spent in studying. We may ask, " Why exams? " First, they determine to what degree we have mastered the subject matter; knowing this, it is much easier to plan ahead intelligently. Secondly, the certainty of the coming exams is a drive to keep up assignments and to get a clear understanding of the sub¬ ject. Thirdly, in our modern world, people want credentials. When we apply for any job or position, our being able to say that we have passed the required examinations makes it easier for others to determine at least in a measure if we qualify for that position. If passing of exams is so important in attaining our desired goal in life, how can we be prepared for them ? Some supposedly think that a jumble of quickly memorized details will warrant a pass mark. However, it is a problem to fit details into their proper place at exam time without a clear mental outline of the material, neither does such a method provide a foundation for further study. A superi¬ or method does not concentrate only on the last week, but rather on getting an outline of the course clearly in mind during the entire term. Periodical reviews then help to remember details readily and put them in their proper place. Our desire is not only that at the end of the term we may pass our exams, but also that we will acquire something lasting to make us more efficient in our Christian witness. PRACTICAL WORK In practical work we put into practise what we learn from day to day. The students go to the different schools, homes and churches to spread the Gospel. An elected com¬ mittee of five members has the obli¬ gation to organize and direct this important work. Each student is expected to serve with those talents which the Lord has provided. Every Friday and Saturday evening a carful of stu¬ dents go out to distribute tracts on the streets of Winnipeg. This gives the students splendid opportunity to do personal work. Many have found Christ in this way. The first Sunday of each month the school is responsi¬ ble for a program in the Union Gospel Mission. Good News Clubs are taught in the different public schools.

House visitation is another ■ phase of practical work. Small groups ■ visit the s ' eh, shut-ins and Old Folks B Homes to give them words of comfort and cheer. Door to door visitation S has also been undertaken in the neigh- I lbouring Catholic towns. Organized tracts groups send tracts to cities like Montreal to reach every one with the gospel of Christ. Several male quartets and a selected chorale tour the different churches and present the gospel in word and song. Many rich blessings have been experienced as we try to be a blessing to others. Practical work is essential for a student of God ' s Word. A class of personal evengelism is of little value if the student does not learn how to l put it to practise. It is through this 11 practical work of serving others that B the student witnesses for the Lord and ■also prepares himself for future more capable service. VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL The Great Commission tells us to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Certainly this commission has been given to us as followers of Christ. Vacation Bible School affords us a wonderful opportunity to carry out the Lord ' s command. When we think of the many schools and districts, some on our very doorstep, where Christ is not preached, we realize that these are parts of the world which need the Gospel. It be¬ comes so much more urgent to teach these children when we realize that the best time to reach a soul for Christ is during its formative years. How aw¬ ful to think of these children going through life without any opportunity to hear the story of salvation. D. V. B. S. is one remedy. Almost everyone can take ad¬ vantage of this method of preaching the Gospel of Christ. Most students, labourers and business people have holidays during the summer months. What an excellent service for the Lord it is to teach D. V. B. S. in this spare time. Certainly many more people could utilize this time for the Lord. What is the result of this work? Many of these children hear the story of Jesus for the first time and-eagerly they listen to the simple gospel mes¬ sage. They realize for the first time that the Saviour was born for them. has died for their sins, and that it is possible for them to make sure of eternal life. Many profess salvation, and trust to Christ to cleanse them from their sins. What a rewarding and humbling experience for our labours. God has been able to use us as His ambassadors and we feel a warm glow in our hearts for having been faithful to Him. Is Vacation Bible School not worthwhile ? THE LAB Of all the rooms in our school, the laboratory is definitely the most fascinating. The rows upon rows of flasks and test-tubes, stands and clamps, scales and weights, burners and beakers, take on a new meaning for us as they are put to use in con¬ junction with the many metals, acids and salts found on other shelves. It can be quite a thrill, for example, to hold a burning match to a gas coming from a glass delivery tube, and to see that the gas burns, turning to water as it burns! It may be equally interesting to watch a small device which keeps on turning as long as it is in the light, and to note that it is driven directly by sunlight energy. Again, you may be almost overcome by a strong nauseating odour emanating from the laboratory; upon investigating, you will find that the Grade XII stu¬ dents have been manufacturing what they call H2S. Today, however, we are hav¬ ing an experiment, not in chemistry or physics, but in biology. On the teacher ' s desk we see something very unusual-a heart! The dissecting instruments, including knives, needles and a pair of dissecting scissors, are all ready. Then, as the process be¬ gins, the students crowd around to observe, all ready with notebooks and pencils to jot down the details. The taking of notes is soon completely for¬ gotten -- all you hear is the talk of veins, arteries, tissues, tendons, auricles, and ventricles. After the general dissection, the more curious boys take the in¬ struments and do some private dis¬ secting, " just to see what is on the inside of the inside. " The class dis¬ perses, still discussing the structure of the heart. Without doubt, the lab¬ oratory is an ideal place to study God ' s great creation. PRAYER BANDS Every Tuesday after four the students of our school gather in the various class and dormitory rooms to pray for the missionaries. We, the student body, have been divided into small groups, which con¬ sist of a leader and approximately five other members. Each group is given a special country and we are es¬ pecially urged to pray for the mission¬ aries of that particular land. Our information concerning specific prayer requests are received from the mission boards or from the missionaries themselves. We write for these special requests so that we can pray more intelligently and with a greater burden. By using our own prayer band as an example I will try to explain the general proceedings of a regular pray¬ er meeting. For the opening one of us reads a few verses of Scripture. This is followed by missionary and al¬ so our personal prayer-requests. We often have a short discussion about our opening scripture or about a certain prayer request and then we unitedly bring our praises and petitions before our heavenly Father. The fruits of intercessory prayer are generally not visible to man, but God will reward His servants ac¬ cording to their faithfulness. LIBRARY If you were to observe the atti¬ tudes and activities of students spending a particular period in the library you might come to various conclusions. Did they, you wonder, all come to study? A student breezes into the li¬ brary, set on making the best of the few study periods he has per week. Another student is concerned with the selection of his seat. It must be isolated from all distractions. Others dread the library period, realizing that sleep will overpower them. Generally, the attitude deter¬ mines the quality of concentration or activity. One student may be so im¬ pressed by the study on " how God an¬ swered prayer in the Gospels " that nothing but the bell could take his mind off the subject. Then, there are ; others, who supposedly, think that sleeping on their theology book is a good way to enjoy theology. Do these realize that the neglecting of theology results in unsound doctrine? Though attitudes and activities may vary, there is either a satisfaction in having done the required assignment i or regret that too little has been ac- ! complished. However, to many a student j the library is the place where he has i been drawn into the presence of God through the study of God ' s Word. PSYCHOLOGY CLASS The second year class is privi- ! ledged to register for a basic, general course in Psychology instructed by ' Mr. Ben Eidse. At our first gathering the in¬ structor asked us to list our own personal expectations in taking this course. The slips listed varied rea¬ sons: " To learn to understand one ' s own behaviour and the behaviour of others " ; " to learn the art of effective counselling " ; " why the overflux in mental institutions? " " learn the art of living with many different types of characters " ; " what motivates our activities? " were a logical and worth¬ while impetus to apply for this course. A reason given which did not sound too prosperous was, " it is a required course for graduating. " Our lessons have been both in lecture form and practical testing. In order to measure our ability to perceive figures in designs, our instructor placed a sheet in front of us with an ink blotch splattered on it. We were told to allow our imagination to focus on this ink and record our mental picture of this page. Answers were as varied as the personalities in the class room. A- mong the diversities of perceptions were extra-ordinarily vivid and original ones like " somebody ' s carelessness with an ink bottle, " " a blue nose bleed, " etc. The psychologist may con¬ clude fairly well by these analyses the maturity of our mental agencies. Have we all enjoyed this class? Of course, because we are all amateur psychologists. 1961 SHORT COURSE Henry Wiebe Kelowna, B. C. Otto Loeppky Niverville, Man. Abe Penner, Giroux, Man.

Short Course will read¬ ily agree that the course has been given the right name, with " short " abbreviated! For Bible School students and others who feel their need of further secular train¬ ing, opportunity is given here to take a number of High School subjects in the spring after Bible School has closed. In the beginning one greatly misses the spiritual fellowship of the students that have left. However, with the regular morning chapel services continuing, we are kept in close contact with the Word of God and the fact that we are here for a very definite purpose, studying to be¬ come more effective and efficient in the service of our Lord and Master. DORMITORY LIFE 6:30 A.M. I believe there is nothing quite as maturing and enriching as dormi¬ tory life. It moulds and strengthens character in a unique and marvellous fashion, and its many joyous times are a source of golden memories in later years. How does living in the dormitory accomplish this? When ties of family and home are strong, it may be difficult, at first for the student to break away and begin life on his own. Yet this in itself creates a feeling of responsi- bilty and independence. " Dorm " life is one of give and take. Sharing a room with three others will soon discipline one ' s attitude, giving to each a new and greater sense of consideration. The many daily in¬ cidents, insignificant though they seem, test this consideration and in¬ crease it, developing true charity. The student ' s daily walk with Christ is also blessed through dormi¬ tory activities. Each day, half an hour in the morning and evening is devoted to prayer and devotion. Dur¬ ing this quiet time of fellowship and prayer, roommates or other small groups gather to read and meditate upon God ' s word. Discussions and thoughts presented help each to glean a new knowledge and to broaden his views. Here also may one bring the spiritual problems or troubles and find peace and solace. The companionship of the other Christian young people is a wonderful privilege. One receives an abundance of it in the dormitory. One can scarcely ever be moody or in low spirits for any length of time in the dorm. Soon a roommate ' s comical a ntics or humorous remarks will cause one to join the hearty laughter and overcome one ' s worries. If large assignments and a busy routine have wearied you, a little chat or visit with roommates or neighbours, is quite refreshing. Then the grand finale of the day is snack time. Perched upon our bunks, and dressed in pyjamas, we discuss events of the day and of the future, while nibbling at red apples or candy. And so our little feast brings to a close another happy and eventfu-l day of dormitory life. Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the night. Quiet reigns in the dormitory, save for one stirring here or there. In the upper bunk someone is arguing unintelligibly with an unseen opponent. Then all is peace and quiet again. Brrr! What was that? Oh!- my toes still tingle! Gradually the be¬ numbed brain begins to function. -- Oh yes - the bell. It ' s six-thirty in the morning! Wherever did time go anyway? Hadn ' t I just dropped off to sleep ? Well, no use lying here, be¬ moaning my fate. If I want a chance at that sink while the water is still lukewarm at least, I better hustle. So I hie myself out of bed, making my way to the clothes rack. Trying to avoid Esther, who is combing her hair before the mirror, and Jerry, who is frantically trying to get into her clothes, I make for the washroom, before the line-up is too long. Tina and Myrtle? Oh - they ' ve gone! At the first sound of the bell they are out of their bunks, making a bee-line for the washroom. Slowly I walk toward the wash¬ room. The sight that greets my eyes is typical of the one I see every morn¬ ing at six-thirty. The room is crowd¬ ed. Tall girls, short girls, girls of all sizes; some with dark hair, others with light hair, done in pins or in rollers. I find a place near the door, and wait my turn at the sink. The time ticks on -- one minute, two minutes, three minutes. I edge closer towards the sink. By now it ' s fifteen minutes to seven and I know I ' ll never make it! Why waste time standing here ? I hurriedly leave the washroom, finish the rest of my toiletries, and sit down with my roommates for a quiet period of devotion. Yes, there certainly is life in the girls ' dormitory at six-thirty in the morning! Jesus never taught men how to make a living. He taught men how to live. Dr. Bob Jones, Sr. Let God have your life; He can do more with it than you can. D. L. Moody MUSIC Music receives a very extensive treatment in our school. As a matter of fact, everyone takes part; let me ex¬ plain. First, this subject is being studied by many of our students. To some this means nothing but the drudgery of study¬ ing cold, " unlyrical " notation. To others this means the excitement of listening to music of the past, in studying the develop¬ ment of music. Still others receive the difficult assignment to properly harmonize a melody, but also the honour of being a " composer " . In any case, an important aspect of an important ministry is under study. Secondly, music is being performed. The Chorale, on Sunday services and on the year-end tour, performs the two¬ fold function of preaching the gospel and promoting higher standards of church music. Besides the many places that are visited by the practical work groups, periodical musical evenings at the school stimulate interest and education along this line. How important are trained in¬ strumentalists and vocalists for properly organized programs of worship and evangelism! Music at the S. B.I. is not only studied and performed, it is also criticized. This, of course, is everybody ' s privi¬ lege. After all, the musician performs not for himself, but for the public. The difficulty arises from the fact that the two never seem to agree as to what the public should want. To the Christian public we say that criticisms should not be by tradition. To the ones criticized, we extend our sympathies. You see then, that we are not alto¬ gether unconcerned about the question of music. With these three angles of ap¬ proach everyone can, and does, find a contribution to make. A DAY AT SBI On the spacious campus of the Stein- bach Bible Institute stand the brick build¬ ings which constitute the centre of Bible training for many a student. Within these walls of learning a variety of experiences are encountered. As we approach the front double doors we are well aware that perhaps, our de¬ parture will mean another extra assign¬ ment. However, the doors swing open wide and our thoughts are at once revised, as we see our fellow students, and chat with them on topics varying all the way from assignments, to world affairs, till the bell rings for chapel. Scurry and chatter seem to combine well about 8:55 A.M. as we hurry to the auditorium where our faithful vacant chairs await us. The bell rings again reminding us its time for-morning de¬ votions. After chapel the students disperse into the various classrooms. What is that stack of white paper doing on the pulpit ? An exam ? A strange apprehen¬ sive silence reigns, until we are assured that these are our finished assignments which have been corrected. Thus we are further led to acknowledge and con¬ centrate on more Bible truths presented to us. Recess has now come into the schedul; of the day. Obviously this is a worth¬ while break. Many are found partici¬ pating in football or volleyball, while the more reluctant venture outside for a breath of fresh air, and a few may be found gazing hopefully into a certain little cubby hole in the lounge. Oh, a letter for me! Hence we enter the library, where a few students are so engrossed in their studies that neither bell nor recess racket can disturb them from their studies. It is now 4 P. M., and another day has ended. Has it? What does that im¬ portant paper on the bulletin reveal? Gratis work, and it ' s your splendid op¬ portunity to display talents of every¬ day life -- simply cleaning up. CAFETERIA STYLE A few minutes before mealtime every one is patiently waiting for the bell to ring. There it goes! Everyone lines up, - first come first served. Slowly and surely we make our way to the trays, and at last are served. From here we go to a table, and wait till six people gather round our particulai table. Then we sit down, say silent grace and begin to eat. After everyone at the table has finished eating, the host or hostess excuses us with, " Gesegnete Mahlzeit. " We then return our trays to the kitchen and leave the dining hall. Doubtless, the cafeteria style does have its advantages. To begin with, the cooks are saved much time and work, because the food does not have to be dished into bowls at the tables; nor do the tables have to be set. Secondly, as soon as the dishwashing crew is through eating, they can start washing the dishes. On the contrary, family style of eat- [ing is more homey! In the first place, [all the students eat at the same time. [Audible grace is said before the meal and [a chorus is sung after the meal. The stu¬ dents also have devotions together at the [table before breakfast. Then, too, the [students have a greater opportunity to [become better acquainted, as there is [more time to converse around the table, j Some students may prefer family style to cafeteria style. However, they all get three good meals a day, and very [little complaining is heard. CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP " Not forsaking the assembling of our- ■selves together, " Heb. 10:25a. " That they all may be one, " John 17:21a. The Scriptures clearly teach us the J importance of Christian fellowship which begins with a vital personal experience of salvation. Realizing our lost and sin- £ful condition apart from Jesus Christ we ■turn to Him in true repentance and faith ■to receive the assurance and joy of sins ■forgiven. Once begun, this fellowship |with Him is maintained by keeping His word, by walking as Jesus walked, by ■the love for the brethern, by overcoming Ithe wicked one and by doing the will of ■God. 1 John 2:5, 6, 10, 14, and 17. Secondly, the unity and fellowship of ■His-followers, one with another, is the innermost desire of Christ. Each school ■ day is begun with a half-hour chapel service in the auditorium of the school. ■Quite frequently we are served at this time by visiting speakers. Monday ' s chapel is usually spent in a time of praise and testimony. Together we then share the blessing received by many of the stu¬ dents who have been out in the service of the Lord during the weekend. Souls are being saved continually, for which we praise God. On Thursday, during the last class period our regular weekly prayer meeting is held, when staff and students gather for a time of prayer and intercession. Reports of answered prayer are always a source of real encourage¬ ment. On Tuesday after four o ' clock, the students gather in separate missionary prayer groups. Each group has a certain part or country of the world allotted to them. Out of these prayer groups has arisen much blessing, because of the smaller, closer and more intimate fellow¬ ship enjoyed, of special note is the day of prayer and fasting, held once during each semester. Studies are completely laid aside for the day and the time is divided into a varied program, leading to real heart searching. Many vic¬ tories over personal problems are won during these days. The little prayer room, penetrating from the centre of the school to the windows of heaven, finds its door frequently closed, with a card on the outside which reads, " oc¬ cupied " . Considering these various avenues of spiritual fellowship, plus the class hours of instruction and the dormitory life, is it any wonder that so many stu¬ dents at the close of their Bible school, or collegiate training, remark that these have been the most impressive years of their life ? Doctrinal differences? Think before you move !

Patience! Patience ! Shortly upon arriving in Switzerland and beginning French language study, an elderly gentleman, who was helping me in my reading lessons said to me, " There are three character traits that a missionary should have; 1. Patience, 2. Patience, 3. Patience. " The great truth of this little statement, which seemed almost funny at the time, be¬ came more real to me as time went on. It is not hard to ask oneself the question. Is language study actually missionary work?, and more than once I have posed the questions; Am I being faithful? Am I doing this as unto the Lord ? Luke 8:15 tells us, " But that (the seed) on the good ground are they, which in an HONEST and good heart, having HEARD the word, KEEP IT, and BRING FORTH FRUIT with patience. " Our first impression when reading these verses is to think of the Word being preached to the unsaved and the good ground being the hearts of those who became truly converted. Well and good, but I wonder how much of the precious seed, the Word of God, goes to waste by falling on stony, filthy, ground right within the four walls of our Bible School. During these days of preparation, Bible School, practical work, deputation work, language study, etc., we must have the soil of our hearts well cultivated and bringing forth fruit (automatically) with patience. Rom. 8:25, " But if we hope for what we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. " I don ' t doubt but that the great desire of every young missionary is to be able to go out and tell others in their own tongue about the love of Jesus. My bride-to-be, who is studying Bambara in Africa, mentioned this desire not long ago. We are with patience waiting for the day when we will be able to lead Africans to the Lord either in French or Bambara. It doesn ' t make a difference which language but it does make a dif¬ ference whether or not we are using it for the Lord. Co. 1:11, " Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and long-suffering with all joyfulness. " I remember very well the patience of my father when 1, as a boy, was slow about something. He would grit his teeth and try to be patient with me, but his face portrayed no signs of patience with joyfulness. This might be a weak illustration but it does show the extreme difficulty in patience and joy¬ fulness going hand in hand in this way. Thus it is patience in preparation, a pa¬ tience with joyfulness we need. Continue to pray for us in language study. Yours in His Service, Danny Wolfe ETHIOPIA Since returning to Ethiopia we have been placed in charge of the Business Department at the S. I. M. headquarters in Addis Ababa. This work entails minis¬ tering to the saints, not in a spiritual, but rather material way. We keep a " general store " for the use of our mis¬ sionaries, ordering goods from the U. S. , and from local merchants. Our missionaries send in mail orders for anything they need on their stations; most orders can be filled directly from our shelves, but some necessitate trips to the local Jeep dealer and perhaps to other dealers before the proper part is found, and then to the airport to send it at the right time. We can only hope that our menial labours lighten the burden of our fellow missionaries who are in the thick of the struggle for souls. And we trust that soon we shall be in the struggle ourselves, for we expect to be moved to a down country station where we shall have a more direct part in the winning of souls for His glory. Yours and His, Allan Kliewers An African pastor asked missionaries leaving on furlough to " tell our friends in America that we do not have refrigerators and other modern contrivances. Tell them that we could even dispense with automobiles, but tell them we cannot do without the Gospel of the Son of God. " brazil 1961 has been a year of varied un¬ expected experiences for us. New Year ' s Day found us taking our new launch on its maiden voyage, going a thousand I miles up the Negro River. We had great plans of using it in the Lord ' s work on the Icana River. Before the end of January we were taken prisoner on the Icana River by some authority of the Brazilian army. We soon discover¬ ed that the Roman church had accused us of everything from murder to break- [ing catholic images and burning their chapels. Fantastic! It was really difficult to rejoice and be exceedingly glad like the Lord Jesus says in Matthew 5:12. By the middle of February the army had us in Manaus where we had liberty to remain only within city limits. We were subjected to secret inquir¬ ies and not allowed the use of either a lawyer or a consul. Later on the army sent their information to the National Security Council of Brazil. We are de¬ fending ourselves and are hopeful that the whole scandal will be discovered. It is a known fact that no military au¬ thority can meddle with any religious affairs. This law was made long ago to protect the Roman priest. The Church on the Icana is going on We have received many letters from the Indian church leaders saying that they are still having daily meetings; they have the Lord ' s Supper once a month and Bible con¬ ferences every six months. We are really glad that we have always stressed a self-govern¬ ing church. Now in our absence they continue as before. Yours in love, Henry and Edna Loewen The Loewens with Joanne, Audrey, Arlene and Henry James. JORDAN Greetings in Jesus ' name from Jor¬ dan. What a privilege to live in the land where our Saviour once lived and taught. It is however, a pathetic thing to note the paganism that has replaced the teachings of Jesus. There is very little true Gospel teaching in this Moslem dominated country and Christianity here seems to mean only tradition and liberty to sin. Since shortly after the Jewish-Arab war of 1948 the Mennonite Central Com¬ mittee came to give emergency relief material aid to the refugees displaced from their home and to help them in a crucial time. Because of political reasons the refugee problem in the Mid¬ dle East has not yet been solved and a need still exists for these refugees. At the present time the Mennonite Central Committee is distributing clothing to several refugee camps and provides food for some three hundred school children in the Jericho area. Self-help programs have been started by teaching camp women to sew and young mothers to care properly for their babies. In the Ma ' an area medical clinics have been establish¬ ed in the villages and feeding centres are to be inaugurated in the near future. There is an orphanage-boarding school in Hebron which is run and operated by MCC. In this country a great need exists to help these poor people to a better way of life. However, there is also a crying need for Spiritual awakening. The large majority of the people are Moslem, hence the country is ruled according to Moslem precepts. This means that there is not complete religious freedom and certainly no freedom for Christians to openly witness. Any Moslem who changes to Christianity is liable to be killed by his relatives for forsaking the Moslem faith. What is MCC doing in the religious area to help the people find the true faith? At the present time each Unit has a Bible study to which nationals are in¬ vited. In Jericho there is a Sunday School (on Thursday) with an attendance of around ninety. Also in Jericho there is a sewing circle and projects for older boys. A regular church service is being planned for the Jericho area in the near future. Recently MCC gained permission to broadcast a fifteen minute evangelical program every Sunday afternoon on Jerusalem, Jordan radio. This is a tremendous opportunity, as there is no other Gospel program to be heard in the region. God has marvellously opened a door for direct Gospel witnessing. MCC also plans to have summer camps for girls and boys, youth clubs and another school is being planned. You can readily see that new op¬ portunities present themselves for a Gospel witness. Please pray with us that in this sin darkened country many more people will turn to Christ and live for Him. Your servant in Christ, Ken Barkman. with the Lord. w MEXICO Isaiah 61:1 " .He hath sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to pro¬ claim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound. 1 What a privilege to proclaim such a Savior! The work of the clinic offers help to those broken in body, but it also affords countless opportunities to minister to those who are captives to sin. Very few who come for physical aid know anything at all of the power of our wonderful Savior. Being a slave to Satan is no easy task. We rejoice that time and again Jesus reached the soul through our extending physical aid. The scene below relates just one wonderful experience. The girl in the trailer was brought to the clinic by her brother and grandmother (also on the picture). She was a polio victim and an unwanted child. I knew that she was be¬ yond help. She had never heard the gospel and what a joy it was to tell her of the Great Physician who could save her soul. She showed real interest and, contrary to her grandmother ' s violent objection, accepted Christ. Three weeks later she died. She left this world with a desire to meet her Savior. She had real joy in her heart. Atocha ' s grandmother and friends were amazed to see her die as she did. Now, praise God, there is hope also that the grand¬ mother will be saved, for she has shown interest in the gospel. Continue to pray that our clinic will always be a means to reach souls of the sick and dying, who need to meet the Savior who can release the captive and heal ' the broken hearted. In Him, Justina Brandt. PANAMA Greetings from Panama, land of palm-fringed beaches and legend- cloaked mountains, of quaint little vil¬ lages and modern cities, of steaming tropical jungles and dry rolling plains. We cherish this opportunity to fel¬ lowship with you and to share something of our work. Our efforts here are divided between teaching and preaching -- between the little red school-house and the little white church, so to say. Actually both school-house and church are built of grey cement blocks. However, the atmosphere of the old- time country school prevails. We have seven grades in one class-room, all the children come from homes with Chris¬ tian parents, and every pupil knows every other pupil ' s family. Most of the children board at the school dormitory where another mission¬ ary couple is in charge. All the young¬ sters who stay, share in the work of maintaining the home. Also they share in the fun and enjoyment of living to¬ gether as a big family. The Pacific Ocean is just four miles away so beach picnics are not uncommon. One week they got the idea of building a palm- roofed hut Panamanian style. The result was somewhat less than artistic, but it served as a play house for a while. With the children present so much of the time there are endless opportunities to drive home the things learned in the classroom. Prayer time is full of real meaning. As children of missionaries these youngsters know what the needs of a missionary are. They are concerned too about the needs of the school itself and they pray and praise alternately as the occasion arises. Christian ethics are not taught from a book, but in day by day living. Our pastoral work has mainly con¬ sisted in serving a little group of be¬ lievers in the village of Vista Alegre. Working with these faithful Christians has been a real joy. It was not long be¬ fore we had gained their confidence and the Bible instruction began to take effect. In some of the older Christians we noticed real growth. The younger ones too, manifested a hunger for the Word. From time to time the Lord allowed us the pleasure of leading a soul to a saving knowledge of Christ. Then came the day when the little mud-walled hut with its palm-thatched roof could no longer serve as meeting place for the Christians. It was de¬ cided to build a new cement block chapel. Everyone helped. Children gathered stones for the foundation, women carried water to mix mortar, and fellow Christi¬ ans from other villages came to help. So with co-operation and hard work the chapel became a reality. The dedication service was held on I a Sunday night. The little chapel was ■ packed and some were standing out side. [There was singing, hearty if not tune- jful. There were testimonies and words of gratitude. And then there was the | evangelistic message. At the close a f number of people came forward for salvation. Praise the Lord. Since then another evangelistic campaign has been held with 13 decisions [for Christ. Since then another evangelistic ■campaign has been held with 13 decisions ■ for Christ. This was followed by a ■Bible course with 20 people attending. Rejoice with us for these blessings land pray that the Lord will continue to ■prosper His work here in Panama. Yours for more fruitful service, Diana and Clifford Reimer ALASKA Our work in Alaska, began August 26th, 1958, when we arrived at the G. M.U. Minfield Children ' s Home near the small village of Auke Bay. Here the day by day contacts with the Tlinget, Aleut and Athabaskan Indian children make the spiritual need very evident. What a joy to see a number of these genuinely saved during our stay there, and a greater joy still to see some of them go back to their villages proclaim¬ ing Christ. Permit me to tell you of two little girls, Charlene and Maude who came to us dirty and ragged; despair mingled with fear written on their young [faces. How quickly they responded to the love shown them and how eagerly they accepted the call to salvation. After about a year they were allow¬ ed to go back to their ungodly village. Months later news came by way of a newcomer at Minfield, that these two girls only 9 and 10 years of age, were going from door to door distributing tracts and singing hymns as they went. After having been on the field six months we were stationed in Auke Bay to assist the Hoffmans in the work of the G. M. U. chapel there. Since the Hoffmans furlough was already overdue, we were privileged to pastor this church for a year. During this time we also organized four weekly children ' s Bible Clubs. In this work we were assisted by others of our workers and had well over 100 children enrolled, with very good aver¬ age attendance. We rejoice that sever¬ al of these children accepted Christ during our D. V. B.S. this summer. During our last missionary con¬ ference several of our young people, some of whom we were privileged to lead to the Lord, dedicated their lives to full time service for the Lord. One of them is now at Wheaton College, while two more plan to leave this com¬ ing fall. This past summer we were approach¬ ed with the need to relieve a missionary couple in the Haines area. After much prayer we left for Haines, having packed most of our belongings into our old car. Here again was a new field. Coming to meet us were new faces, each with its own definite spiritual need. During the past five months, we have been pastoring a small church in Port Chilkoot some 80 miles north of Juneau. It is a struggling church and needs your earnest prayer support. Pray with us; won ' t you? Dorothy and Bill Kehler. PANAMA MOROCCO " Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all they diseases. " Psalm 103:3 It is a regular Tuesday morning Clinic. Many have come with just simple colds or for a de-worming treatment, but amongst the sea of faces there is one whose deathly palor signifies that she is in a more serious condition than the rest of the patients. Her younger sister is with her. They have come, in a small motor boat on the ocean from a town down the coast. Upon examining her and questioning the sister, we find that she has had many repeated at¬ tacks of malaria and obviously is suffering from malnutrition. Lorenza is 18 years old but has more the appearance of a girl of eleven. We decide to take her with us. But due to our work it is necessary that we leave our house many times, so we decide to place her in the home of a Christian neighbour. Lorenza does not only need medicine and proper food, but she needs to be taught a different way of life. She prefers to lie on a gunny-sack on the damp dirt floor to a soft mattress. Instead of eating the nourish¬ ing food she so badly needs, she will eat handfuls of dirt, when she thinks no one is watching. We find that there is something that Lorenza craves, more than anything else, and that is love. She feels that there is no one that really cares for her. Please pray for Lorenza and others like her, that they might experience in their hearts that there is One that loved them so much that He gave His life in order to give them Life Eternal. Sincerely, Linda Reimer. Christian greetings to teachers, stu¬ dents and friends of the Steinbach Bible Institute. It hardly seems possible that I am not at the S. B. I. like I have been for the past four years. Sooner or later we must all leave and find God ' s place for us, joining the many who have been faithful in the pas and have found their places of service for our Master. I joined the Mennonite Central Com- j mittee in June of 1961 and was assigned to a " Pax " assignment in the Europe-North Africa program. June 25th I left home an-1 after two weeks of orientation in Akron, Penn. , several of us sailed for Europe on July 15th. My first temporary assignmen was in Germany, where I helped with a building program for approximately one ar d a half months. I was then transferred to France where I worked at a Children ' s Hor le and studied French in preparation for my future assignment in Morocco, North Africa, After one month in France and a few days | " Pax " Conference in Switzerland, I left on October 5th for Morocco--one of a chain o ' Moslem countries across the northern par of Africa. After arriving here I workfed for three weeks in a boys ' orphanage near Agadir. Our unit also has a work with several farmers in the mountains, approximately 301 kilometers from Agadir and another worker was needed there so I joined another Men¬ nonite from New York. We rented e Moro:- can house in the area. We work with the farmers trying to help them improve their living, which is a constant struggle in this semi-desert country. This work is however only the means to an end and that end is the eventual salvation of the people we are work¬ ing with. You probably know how difficult mission work is in Moslem countries and thus we would earnestly ask you to pray with us that God ' s Word might prevail. Brother in Christ, Gordon Reimer. BRAZIL " So shall My Word be that goeth forth out of My mouth, it shall not return unto me void but it SHALL ACCOMPLISH that which I please. " Isaiah 55:11. Our objective with the Pacaas-Neves Indians is, not only to lead them to Christ but give them God ' s Word in writing. To accomplish this it is necessary to learn the language and also analyze its complex grammatical structure. Much of the analysis is done, .yet, there remain many obscure areas, which obligates usjto temporarily discontinue on the primers, expecting to terminate them with a simple Bible story book. ■ The work on the Lage River is a day ' s journey from Guajara Mirim. This camp is a group of thatched huts in which there are from 50 to 100 Indians who roam the jungles in [search of food. Every morning we make the rounds checking them for colds, malaria, pneumonia, etc. , giving pills and shots as needed. The sicker ones demand our at¬ tention at various times during the day, while others with minor ailments come and ask for pills. " I hurt, give me pill " , they say, as! if there was only one type of sickness, or on|e kind of pill. Wouldn ' t it be wonderful if it were that simple! In between these many interruptions, we do our language and literary work. At night time the Indians like to sing action choruses. ■ The work in this tribe is divided into two areas, one on the Lage River, and the other on the Pacaas Neves River. All of which is carried on by three missionary families and one single missionary. The preparing of literary material and the busi¬ ness details for the other missionaries, falls largely on us. Besides this we share in tak¬ ing care of the Indians and as we can, we help in the language analysis, etc. This leaves us no idle moments, for which we are glad and we believe as a result of our labours we shall have the privilege of hearing the Pacaas-Neves Indians singing praises to God when we stand before Him in that Day. In Him, Abe Koop family. MEXICO I Fond memories of our so recent ex¬ periences in the S. B. I. linger in our minds. We are grateful for the preparation we have received in the school for our work on the ' field ' . We are especially thankful we learned that to dedicate our lives for Christ meant to get ready and go. So here we are, happy in the Lord ' s service. We arrived in Mexico on the 26th of July, 1961 and reached the Picacho Mission station on the 27th. Here we remained for a ' short ' month while the regular missionaries went out fishing for little souls (D. V. B. S. ) Then, at the end of August we moved to the recent Men- nonite Colony (Quellen Colony) where we established a private school for the boys and girls of the E.M.C. brethren in Mexico. This is a needy work, since these children, to be fitted for the Master ' s use, need more in the way of education than the regular Mennonite schools here offer. Enrolled in the school are 33, including 3 High School Correspondence students, one Grade IX and two Grade X. Although the major part of our work is teaching these children, we are also trying to reach the thousands of Mennonites in Mexico who have lost their vision, and could hardly be called fundamental, since their salvation is largely connected with a mix¬ ture of laws, traditions, and works. Is it not tragic that these people do not even claim to have peace ? How hard it is to reach them, for any effort is ridiculed or suspiciously swept into the dust. We are starting a house to house pro¬ gram, handing out literature and taking names and addresses of interested people. May the printed page be a means of reach¬ ing these souls. In closing, we want to challenge the graduates, and we ask each one, " In what stage are you in the process of going to the mission field? Have you started? Will you be going? Soon? Will you make a begin¬ ning today? " We want to thank all students for praying for us and our work. Yours in Christ, John and Leona Kornelsen. A true missionary is God ' s man in God ' s place, doing God ' s work in God ' s way for God ' s glory. The one calling not over-crowded is the missionary calling. HOME MISSIONS FLIN FLON The work at Flin Flon and Creighton is faced with the words of Jesus as found in John 9:4. " Work. . .while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work " . The workers gather every second Monday in a home to make up the Sunday programs for Creighton and Beaver Lake. Further dis¬ cussions are made of pertinent business and recorded by a faithful secretary. Wednesday afternoon, Bible instruction is given at the Beaver Lake school. Two Happy Hour Clubs are being taught in our homes, at the same time. At night a group divides for prayer after voicing their re¬ quests and praises. Thursday is Handi-craft day. All workers are desperately needed for this function from 4:15 to 5:30 the hall is turned into a " Busy B ' s nest. " The first half hour is spent devotionally and the latter with the various projects. On Friday another school is served with Bible instruction. At night the young people gather for devotional program, Bible study and choir-practice. Saturday is simply a day of preparation for the following Sunday, with the exception of two Saturdays a month. The first and last Satuday night of each month are utilized for tract distribution on the streets. The first thing Sunday morning is singing at either one of the local hospitals. From the hospital we branch out to gather the various children for Sunday School. Every worker is a S.S. teacher. Church services are held at Beaver Lake every second Sunday. Sunday night our local church service is conducted in a rented hall from 7:00 to 8:15 p. m. At the time of this writing the two other male workers are employed by the local teaching staff and the General Hospital. Other activities of the mission worker is a weekly printed message in the local paper. Every second month he has the opportunity of speaking 15 minutes every day for a week over the local radio station. Furthermore, as a member of the ministerial he is asked to participate in ministering to the people at Island Falls, the source of our local hydro-power. PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE Pardon a bit of reminiscing before I be¬ gin my report. Twelve graduations have come and gone since my own graduation in 1949. As I write, I have before me the " Star " , of that year, open at the pictures of the third year class. As I look at them, I thank God for the evident hand of blessing oi that group of young people. To see them all today, would necessitate a trip to the riot torn Congo, down to Brazil to the savage Pacas Novas Indians, up into the Northern regions of Canada plus a number of other home mission fields. The Lord ' s blessing on all you ' 49 ' ers. It will be three years in May of 1962 since the Lord directed us to the work tha we are now doing in Portage la Prairie, IVlat Portage is a city of around 12, 000 people situated on the trans-Canada highway some 50 miles west of Winnipeg. For a year and a half, services were held in the Orange Hall as well as at our home. Due to the fact, that the work was growing and also to the high rent factor we started building our own church. We com menced construction in May and in Novemhe had our first service in the new structure. With a splendid corps of Sunday Schoo workers we have seen the Sunday School grow from an average attendance of 23 in October 1959, to an average of 67 in October 1961. The morning and evening services, although not showing such a marked increase have shown good growth for which we are very thankful. Record attendance for Sundi; School now stands at ninety-three. Other activities of the church are clubs for boys and girls, youth choir, prayer meeting, children ' s meetings, and house visitation. We also have the opportunity o. ministering at four institutions as our turn comes. They are: the Women ' s Gaol, Manitoba School for Mental Defectives, and two homes for the aged. About 4 times a year we get to broadcast morning devotion:; on the radio. We count it a privilege to be workers 1o- gether with them in the building of the king¬ dom of God.
