v V THE 1963 STAR STEINBACH BIBLE INSTITUTE ' Endmorntj to kwp tU uniip o{ tkt Sptut tk bond, oh pern " 6pi 4- 3 REWARD We take much delight in presenting to you, the reader, this twenty-seventh edition of the S.B.I. Star. It has been prayerfully prepared with the intention of providing an accurate picture of the staff and students. It is our desire that this edition of “The Star” will serve as an inspiration to you, encouraging you to pray for us who are preparing for Christian service. May this issue also influence some indi¬ viduals to join our ranks here at the institute in preparation for the great task of World Evangelism. Please pray with us that this ’63 Star will be a rich blessing to all that read it. EDICATI OM It is with heartfelt gratitude that we dedicate this book to Mr. Eidse, who has been faithfully teaching the last two and a half years, and is now serving with his family, as a missionary in the Congo. Statement of Jfattb 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. %ov tau t Attfy fUAjjfdi jicacc , wAe sc sn n f stayed on + Aee -.

They understood both the elementary conditions and the power of prayer. c That they understood the elementary conditions is clearly seen in j Acts 1:14, . . they continued with one accord.” Observe: 1) They 1 had true unity. Their relations man-ward and God-ward were all sanctified. Their family, social, bus- ! iness, and religious relations were so j adjusted that no restitutions were | necessary. 2) They continued. This continuance shows that they con- I stantly depended on God for results. ' Not their three-years with Him, not their position of prestige, were the ultimate grounds of power with God; but their dependence on God, i.e. prayer. Ben Hoeppner, B.Th., B.A., Bible Department. Music Carlyle said in his letter to Burns: “Let me write the songs of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws.” The wisdom of this state¬ ment is realized by few people in our day. We are too busy with “more important” activities to realize that music plays a prominent role in shaping our philosophy of life, even our destiny. As Christians, we are obligated to investigate our music diet and keep it honorable before God. Henry Hiebert, Bible Department. Missions Missions demand vision — a vision of the Lord, of self, and of Others. The first inevitable issues in the other two. I Vision of the Lord: Isaiah declares, “I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up.” Later he testifies, “Mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of Hosts.” Vision of Self: Instinctively the prophet looks within. “Woe is me! for I am undone.” __________________ But this j Vision of not all. The prophet sees others — Others in need of cleansing and for¬ giveness. “I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips.” Give us ihis vision Lord. Ben Eidse, B.A., M.A., Bible Department. The Meaning of History The word “history” comes from the Greek word “historia” which speaks of that branch of knowledge that records and explains past events. Included in the meaning is the idea that history is the event itself. As an event occurs, history is “being made.” For the believer history stretches as far back as the creation of man, and forward to the final separation of good and evil in a last decisive and magnificent crisis. The present then becomes meaning¬ ful only as it is seen in this context. This makes it imperative that we I make a radical commitment to the God of history today. I Harvey Plett, B.A., B.D. Bible Department. The Art of Verbal Communicatiori Language is the chief means of communication between people; by it we can both learn and communicate truth. Though our Christian witness to the world rests in part on deeds produced by a living faith, words from the foundation of our witness. For this reason the best resources of language are needed to communicate Christian experience and conviction. If our speech is socially unacceptable, we have al¬ ready undermined our witness. The effectiveness of our testimony also rests on how well we make others understand and what we mean by Christian concepts such as “repent¬ ance” and “faith in Christ.” Con¬ sequently, correct and clear expres¬ sion must be cultivated if we wish to communicate effectively the mes¬ sage of life to others. L. Dueck, B.A. High School Department. Duties of the Dean “And every one that was in distress. ...” I Samuel 22:2 Distress speaks of grief, suffering and danger. A person in distress may be troubled or annoyed. He may be experiencing severe physical or mental strain. To help a student in distress is one of the dean’s duties. . . and every one that was in debt. . . .” There is the debt one owes to the community or to the individual against whom one has sinned. Or, there is the debt of love one owes another who is in need of friendship. When a student becomes heavily indebted to others, it is the dean’s privilege to guide him in the pay¬ ment of his debts. “. . . and every one that was dis¬ contented. . . .” Discontentment results in a general ebbing of spiritual life. The dean must deal wisely with those who have complaints in order to assure an increasingly rich exper¬ ience of God’s blessing in the life of each student. Doreen Reimer, B.A. High School Department. Athletics How should a Christian regard athletics? Must we brand all recreation as sin and put a premium on physical weakness? Or shall we regard physical strength and athletic prowess as being all that matters? To the one who longs to serve Christ either of these positions must be extreme. Here at SBI we shy away from both of these extremes. To avoid the first, the Recreation Committee seeks to improve recreational facilities and to encourage students to utilize these and other means of gaining both mental relaxation and physical fitness. On the other hand, to avoid an over emphasis on athletics all participation in athletic or physical fitness programs is left purely on a voluntary basis, and the spirit of rivalry and competition is held to a minimum. Thus athletics become a blessing, not a curse. Christian service demands that we keep our hearts, minds and bodies in the best possible condition. Christ wants our best, our all.

Due to the inevitable progress of time, life is a series of graduations and commencements. We, the third year class of 1963, now graduate from Bible School to commence a new stage of our life. As did the disciples on that memorable day of Christ’s ascension, so we stand on the threshhold of a new chapter in the service of o ur Master. As followers of our Lord, we are aware of the duties and obligations which we have. The Lord expects us to brii His transforming gospel of salvation and peace to a world which is in the grips of fear and anxiety. Some c us tremble as we think of stepping out and invading the strongholds of sin and darkness and, were it not fc Christ’s heartening promise, “Lo, I am with you alway,” we would perhaps falter and despairingly give up the tasl As we look back, we realize how swiftly the past three years have gone by. We think of the firm friendshif which have been established. We think of the blessed times of fellowship and prayer when, in company with sorn fellow students, we have sought the will of God. We think of the inspiring examples which the teachers have bee to us in their prayer life, their speech, and their walk. We think of the times when some awe inspiring truths ha become clear to us as we perused the Word of God. As we wistfully look back we regret that we did not mat greater use of the opportunities which were ours but, nevertheless, we humbly thank God for His bountiful bless ings and beg forgiveness for our failures. We want to voice our gratitude to those who have .made our studies a possibility. We especially thank oi parents for their guidance, their thoughtful advice, and their prayers on our behalf. May we never disappoint th high and godly hopes which you have for us. To the men who founded this school and to the present board v would also offer our appreciation. To the teachers we can only say, “May the Lord reward you richly.” We car not repay you for the intellectual training and the spiritual guidance we have received, nor for the exemplary an sacrificial life which you have lived before us. We promise you our life long gratitude and we trust that we wii never give you cause to be ashamed of us, as graduates of your school. We now turn from the past to accept the position which the Lord has planned for us. The task looms largf The world is hard, apathetic, and unfriendly. We do not know what our lot will be; we may have to suffer; v may have to die. But we do know that “in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that love us.” As we leave this school, we rejoice in the assurance of God’s promise, “My presence shall go with thee, and - will give thee rest.” (Ex. 33:14.) FRED FRIESEN Rosenort, Manitoba Missions President Fred is a sound thinker. He is sincere in his Christian testimony and service. His bur¬ den for the lost can be seen in the work he is doing.

Teacher’s View itis work in a school such as this, relaxes the by helping to forget, for a short period, intellectual ems. It stimulates one’s mental alertness by keep- hysically fit. It helps us socially in learning to get with other students. Then last (but not least) time-proven means of getting work done. There- dopting this premise, the gratis manager cheerfully is the work to the different campus students, who I accept them, though not always with the same exuberance exhibited by the former. Some of the duties assigned are peeling potatoes, washing floors, cleaning the sidewalk and checking the sewer. If there are still those who find time to be mischievous, some more work can easily be found and assigned. Students’ View The students often have difficulty seeing eye to eye with the supervisor on this matter. They seem to consider a game of football and a nap as having definite advantages for stimulation and relaxation. However, since teacher knows best, back to the potatoes and sidewalks. IEPPNER—Adv TH I ESSEN—C i CORNELSON- TRACT WORK What is tract work? Tract work is the distribution of small leaflets of gospel literature either by mail or by standing on the streets handing out these leaflets. Tracts by Mail— There is a wide open door for this type of work. Here at the school a group of students come together once a week to do this. The tracts are sorted into one of a kind to each envelope and then mailed. Some of the students sort the tracts while others write the names and addresses on the envelopes. The names are obtained from the Western Tract Mission. Tracts by Personal Contact— t Another way that the S.B.I. distributes these printed messengers is by direct contact with the pecA Every Friday and Saturday night a group of six 4 ( go out to the streets of Winnipeg and hand out tH gospel leaflets. The ones who go usually walk al? c the busiest streets and hand each person who will acec it a tract. If at all possible these individuals tn speak to these people about their souls. n Results— The reaction to these gospel leaflets is varied. So 6 people will angrily refuse these printed messengers! God. Others will take them gladly, while still othl have an indifferent attitude to the tracts. Many eel contacts have been made as a result of this work d PROGRAMS very student of the S.B.I. is expected to participate “ extension work of the school. One avenue of this sion work is the rendering of programs, his winter a group of students travels to the nia area bi-weekly and proclaims the gospel of Christ at several places in that vicinity. We have committed ourselves to render one program per h at the Union Gospel Mission in Winnipeg, e are numerous opportunities to present the gospel :al schools, or in the various churches of the area. :t, some churches have made it a matter of tradition vite the school to render a program at least once hese programs give the students practical training eaching, story-telling, and singing; but more than it is also another way of sharing the wonderful 1 with others. HOUSE VISITATIONS GOOD NEWS CLUB ‘We just had to have club today,” exclaimed eight • old Jerry as he came in from the storm; “Mother she did not think that there would be club today that we could come and see.” The children, despite the fact that they have had a ; day in school, come regularly and listen with keen tcipation. - ' New life is evidenced in the stride of the twenty-two le School students, as well, as they hurry toward ttr Good News Clubs once a week. These are held altome of the homes in Steinbach and schools of the bounding districts. Approximately two hundred boys ry. girls, ranging in age from four to fourteen have n presented with the stories and pictures from the es “Growing the Bible Way.” These lessons point 5( the way of salvation clearly and how the young never may grow and have fellowship with the Lord. thThis has been another aspect of our school’s practical gck and its desire that we practice what we have died. “Heavenly Father, guide and direct us now as we visit these homes tonight: Amen.” Thus concluded the group leader before taking her group of three or four girls into the town of Steinbach, where they would visit the homes of the elderly, bereaved and lonely. Their somewhat anxious hearts were calmed by a shy but sweet smile as they were welcomed into the warm atmosphere of the first home. A bit of conver¬ sation, some gospel songs, a favourite Scripture portion and a word of prayer comprised the time of fellowship. As they turned to leave, the warm pressure of the time¬ worn hand and the hidden tears in her shining eyes told of blessings received. Thus it is the policy of the Steinbach Bible Institute to have their students go out each week to visit the aged and the lonely. It is here that we put into practical experience some of our learned theory and here also we experience that quiet joy which comes with serving our Lord. Other groups have gone to surrounding towns and presented the gospel to the people in their own homes. Many have closed the doors in our faces, but others willingly discussed this most important of topics, God’s plan of redemption through Christ. Please pray that the words spoken and the literature handed out, might even now draw men to God. CHORALE MUSIC COMMITTEE Hm The Chorale of ’61 -’62 consisted of thirty-six siij each selected by audition from the Institute’s stt £ body. It was under the direction of our capable p- instructor, Mr. Henry Hiebert, and was accompany Miss Patricia Friesen, a Grade Ten student. Al 3 siderable amount of time went into preparation I songs for public rendition. The objectives of the Chorale were several, r ■ our desire to be used as channels to sing fortf® salvation and comfort. We trusted that our prc would also prove a challenge to some of the list; to also enrol in a Bible School, to learn more our “Beautiful Saviour,” (the commencing sor ja HV of our program). Then too, the Chorale was a tra for the individuals for the ministry of sacred r ; Another objective was to promote higher standai; church music. Throughout the course of the school year, chit§ j P were visited in Steinbach, Winnipeg, Prairie jj 0 Niverville, Anola, Rosenort, and Horndean. Thr y tendance and receptions were encouraging. J The Chorale’s climax and culmination cara ' April, after the graduation. A one-week tour made via bus to points north and west. Places v were Portage la Prairie, Brandon, Flin Flon, } River, Mafeking, Benito, Canora, Kamsack, Spi Virden and MacGregor. Songs by the Chorale, i monies, a song by the quartet, a solo by Miss DJ Reimer and a message constituted the program il 101 various churches visited. It was a privilege for us as a Chorale to singj His praise in this way. May the singing ol Chorale in the future always be as “unto the i!

Just what do most of us visualize ' ien we think of their activities? To some this committee represents the work of a oficient cameraman on the job. They encounter a ohnny-on-the-spot” who always seems to be on the ene in time to catch a humorous situation for his flection of candid shots. They have also his “flash- db fans” to contend with, who do their best to win e prize offered for the most interesting picture. Others feature the task of preparing character etches and essays. Summarizing the character of one’s iends in a proverbial saying or in a snappy, descrip- e sketch can prove interesting and amusing. Posing for class and committee pictures is another rent associated with the work of the Yearbook Com- ittee. Previous to this day, time is spent in preparation id planning details. After each student has said, .theese” very prettily to the camera lens, there is a sriod of anxious waiting for proofs. When they finally arrive, there is a scurry of fctivsiy as friends and classmates inspect each other’s pictures and make exchanges. i Rousing pep talks on salesmanship and the prizes Ffered as incentives are another aspect of this group’s fforts. There is an annual competition among ambiti- us students to see who can sell the most books. To many students this committee is surrounded by cloak of mystery. Much of the designing and planning f the yearbook is kept a careful secret until it is ompleted. A stray sketch by a talented artist, or ragments of a discussion here and there are the only ants students can gather. ei Few people actually realize the tremendous work !C his committee carries out to make its enterprise a uccess; to make THE STAR a blessing to all who read t. Students catching a glimpse of the activity behind he scenes would realize more fully the amount of atience, skill, and labour required of each member. Ne cannot all take a share in this organization, but ve can say, “Thank you, and keep up the good work!” rM SNACK SHOP Students spending the evening studying usually are happy to take a few minutes off for “Snack Shop at 9:30. They gather in the dining room and try to forget their assignments for a while over coffee and doughnuts or other light refreshments. Usually Mary Martens tries her best in selling fresh, warm doughnuts or Jambusters while Margaret Funk gladly pours the coffee. Jake Cornelsen takes care of the “donations” and insists on a cash and carry arrangement with all. For fifteen minutes they keep the shop open and then, after the students have returned to their books, they have some dishes to wash and money to count before they are free. The Snack Shop serves a number of purposes. It provides a short period of relaxation for the students to help them to endure long hours of concentration and at the same time serves as a minor source of income for the Student Body. WEDNESDAY NOON RUSH I sat in class and listened to the class lecture when I absentmindedly looked at my watch. Two minutes to twelve! Soon we would be having a good dinner. Then suddenly, as I realized that it was Wednesday, my hopes sank. Practical hour today! That meant only a small lunch and little time in which to have it. A certain group from the student body was to bring the program as usual. This was to begin at 12:30. The bell rang and a book slammed. Then came a sharp “Johnny, you aren’t dismissed yet,” and the instructor continued for a few more minutes in order to finish his topic. By the time we were dismissed there was a long line-up for lunch and we ended up at the end of the line. This meant that we would only have a very few minutes to have our lunch of hot dogs and coffee. Upon reaching the table I found that I had forgotten my hot dogs so I quickly returned to the counter to pick them up. Gulping on my second hot dog a blob of mustard dropped on my pants. That meant, go and change in a hurry! By the time that was done the singing had already begun. Late again! ! MISSIONARY CONFERENCE One of the highlights of the year at S.B.I. is the Missionary Conference. Whether it be the one held before the commencement exercises, in the spring of the year, or whether it be held at the beginning of the New Year, Missionary Conference is always looked forward to with keen anticipation by the students of S.B.I. This years’ conference was no exception. On the agenda were many missionaries home on furlough, as well as those who had expressly come to share with us a report of what God had wrought through them. The special speaker was the Rev. W. Elwyn Davies. Mr. Davies, the President of the Bible Christian Union, and a product of the great Welsh Revival, threw out a challenge for us by his choice of a timely topic: “Wheels! This machine age runs on wheels.” Sisera, the able-bodies, and proud captain of Jabin’s host was overthrown by a woman (Judges 4 and 5). His mother, looking out of the window, cried through the lattice, “Why tarry the wheels of his chariot?” Sisera was defeated, never to turns the wheels of his chariot back again. Mighty Army of the Young! Power is given to crucified hands and crucified feet. Shall the challenge go unanswered? Shall the Sisera of this world ride proudly by in his chariot, unchallenged? S.B.I. is an institution to train warriors for the Lord. Many of the Lord’s own are oppressed, looking forward, crying, “Why tarry the wheels of His chariot?” Is it because you or I have not done our share to complete the Body of Christ? GRADUATION The term “graduation” speaks to us of another achievement in the upward climb, of another milestone gained in the walk of life, or of the completion of a task. Graduation from a Bible Institute may include all these achievements but often it entails much more for those who attain it. It means for them, a commence¬ ment, the arrival at a crossroad, and brings with it new responsibilities. In the first place, graduation is a commencement. It is a termination only in the sense that it marks the end of a student’s school attendance. He has gained what he came to attain and is now ready to move on. He has obeyed the command, “Study to show thyself approved unto God.” He has learned to “Take it to the Lord in Prayer” and has been challenged to “Go and teach all nations.” Now is the time to put theory into practice, to lend wings to words. Consequently, graduation means for many, the arrival at a crossroad. Souls still in darkness and in need of salvation are beckoning in one direction. A prosperous career and social achievement call from another direction. The need for more education leads yet another way. One road may appear to be most attractive on the surface but the other could be more rewarding in the end. Now is the time for wise and divinely-directed decisions. Accordingly, graduation brings with it new respl sibilities. It is not so difficult to speak up for the L to take time for devotions, and to study God’s V, when one is in a Christian institution; but, now cot ' the time to withdraw from such an atmosphere ; to go forward for the Lord “without the camp.” Gifai uates are looked up to as those who have studied U the feet of Jesus; therefore, a victorious Christian " and radiant testimony for Christ is expected of each of them. Our world today, presents a mighty chalk: to the strength and vitality of dedicated Christian lh and graduation from a Bible Institute greatly addl this responsibility. • Since graduation signifies a commencement, I arrival at a crossroad, and the acceptance of I responsibilities, it is of utmost importance that ■ occasion be approached with dedication, sincerity, I a surrender of self-will. May God grant that gradual from the Steinbach Bible Institute will always be si an occasion. ■’I 2 i DAY OF PRAYER The announcement of a day of prayer brings mal questions to the mind of the newcomer at the Sil “How are we going to spend the day? — will I know what to do? — is it valuable to have a day H fasting and prayer?” These, and many others aj answered as the day progresses. We want to reel some of the blessings of such a day. The upward look — The first part of the day v spent in the auditorium together with the faculty. W were informed of the program and procedure of m day. Then our eyes were focused on God as we wet. reminded of His infinite love, the great price of oy redemption, and our responsibility in accepting tl salvation. Later as the high school and Bible studer gathered in their respective classrooms, we spent son time in sharing the blessings of this life in Christ, season of prayer followed. Especially precious was tl next hour, when the brethren and sisters gathered separate rooms. A hand of love and understands united us more one with another and with Him. The inward look — After partaking of some drii and fr.uit there was a time set aside for private devotio and counselling. Many students took advantage of tl special opportunity to discuss with faculty membe some of their problems, burdens, and needs. It w a time of real heart searching for those who spent tin alone with God. Many heart cries were answered 1 a meeting with God. The outward look — Not only did we think of or selves, but time was also spent in praying for gradual of the school who are serving the Lord at home ai abroad. Later, as our regular prayer bands we together, we prayed for the work carried on in t many countries around the world. As at the close of the day we again gathered in tl auditorium, one after another rose to his feet to spei of the blessings of the day. It was a stepping stone in t life of many a student. |Getting Acqu; Hornl ng| PRACTICAL HOUR It’s Wednesday noon and everyone is anxiously waiting for the auditorium doors to open. Finally the doors are opened and in a few minutes everyone is settled in his seat due to the ushers’ efficient service. Practical Hour, which is presented by different groups of students each Wednesday has proved to be interest¬ ing, challenging, educational, humorous, and very thought provoking. One practical hour group portrayed the judgment at the great white throne. While the song “The Great Judgment Morning” was sung, people from all walks of life came before the great shining angel, each trying to justify himself, only to be turned away, having the anguished look of the lost. This was only a glimpse of what it will be like at the judgment day, but it gave us the sobering thought of “Where will I spend eternity.” Another group presented “High Flight,” an airplane ride with its destination—heaven, its Chief Pilot— Jesus Christ. Again we sensed the nearness of God and the life God requires of each born again believer. We must have as our pilot Jesus Christ and as our guide the Holy Spirit. The low misty flat is no place for us when we embark on the plane to heaven. Our aim is high above the billowing clouds, striving ever upward till we reach the portals of heaven. It is not without reason that each group seeks to make their program the best, for after each program the principal gives opportunities for constructive criti¬ cism and commendations of the program. It is a chal¬ lenge to strive for perfection in the work of our Master, who demands the best in His service. LIBRARY The writer of Ecclesiastes says, “The words! wise are as goods . . . and further by these my I admonished.” (Ecc. 12:11-12). The library fj are for the purpose of finding out what other God have to say concerning various subject™ words of the wise. Arrangements of the Library On entering the library one finds that it has fa| for approximately sixty students. On one side room are book shelves containing approximately! books, which are arranged according to the IL decimal system. These books may be studied L library or they may also be checked out for a I of two weeks. The Needs of the Library m A library must be constantly growing if it® serve its purpose. Books are added yearly by pernfB loans received from the Evangelical Library, Lfl England. The conditions of these loans are th Institute sends in a yearly donation and thj I Institute remains evangelical. Secondly, it is built donations received from those who have a vital it in the school and feel they want to contribute, a number of the books are loaned to the libra individuals. The Value of the Library It is a place where quietness is maintained where one has ready access to books. Should a sij training for pulpit work want to learn how to he could find a section of books which deals homiletics, exposition, etc. Or should someone to study a certain given topic, he would find nun| commentaries providing a wealth of information j the lines of Church History, Mennonite History, r tian Evidences and so on. A student anticipating l j missionary service may find information on h( spread the gospel effectively, in the section dealing Anthropology. Information on different cults anc ;C gions can also be found in the library, plus many! types of information. The library thus provides the facilities and a g phere conducive to effective studying. The In trusts that the library will help the Christian " 1( to be able to “study to shew himself approved} God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, r. ( dividing the word of truth.” : c REGISTRATION What is registration at S.B.I. like? According to the ictionary the word registration means “an act of in¬ erting in a register or enrolment.” But what is it to ie student? To some, entering upon a new phase f life, a new adventure, to others back to the old rind of another semester’s studies, to still others, the egistering for the last time at S.B.I. What procedures are to be followed upon entering he school for registration? Please join me on our last emester’s registration day. January 3, 1963, 9:30 a.m. What a confusion every¬ where! Last semesters students are anxious to get tarted, while ' the new students look bewildered and lon’t know what to expect. A stop is made at the ounter for information from the dean. Here the [uestions are repeatedly asked, “Where is the dean?” ‘Where am I to place my belongings?” Frantic search s made for the proctors or room captains. While students find their places, the secretary is tow ready to begin. An instructor with the aid of our - .A. system calls out instructions. At the office we will eceive our registration information which we are to ollow accordingly. Our registration cards are at the ffice, from here we proceed to our assigned classrooms. In each classroom an instructor will assist and answer our questions. ■ What subjects are we to take? Thanks to our helpful instructors who willingly help us decide whether to take Homiletics, (yes, even the ladies are allowed to 1 take it), Comparative Religion, Personal Work, Evan¬ gelism and so on. Sorry, but Church History is not compulsory. With these decisions made, our principal’s desk is next. Here he inspects our card and having received ( his okay and signature we go to the next table. Three or four student helpers will help with the selection of books. Further down the line the shockingly high price of books is totaled, receipts made and last but by no means least we see the amazingly low cost of our second semester’s bill. After this we are free to get acquainted | with new students, visit, or get settled in our rooms. As an eye-witness to this whole ordeal, I was amazed at the various expressions on faces of students. Happy ones, yes, even some tired ones, some real energetic ones, eager to go on the job, and some dubious ones as to whether they will enjoy a busy winter at S.B.I. Our names are on the school register. Can we truly 1 say our names are in the Book of Life? HOMILETICS The question arises, “What is Homiletics?” As we discuss this topic more fully with various people, we also find out that there are various ideas in regards to the meaning of this word. Basically it means, “the art of preparing or writing a sermon. Why study Homiletics in school? The Bible clearly tells us that we are to do ail things decently and in order. God created our minds in such a way that we could comprehend numerous ideas if presented method¬ ically. Christians have such a vital message to proclaim that every effort ought to be made so that the audience could grasp the contents of the sermon brought. The use of Homiletics helps the preacher to prepare the sermon in a clear way so that each thought presented would tie the complete delivery together. First of all it greatly aids the preacher in preparation and delivery and then it makes it easier for the audience to follow intelligently. Can Homiletics become a hindrance? The answer to this question is simply, yes. The apostle Pauls says in First Corinthians 2:4, “And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wis¬ dom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power.” The preacher can become so efficient in using the technical means of preparing the sermon that the Holy Spirit has no part in it at all. This is especially true when rushed for time and all that a Homiletical sermon consists of, is what Paul writes in Second Timothy 3:5a, “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.” The fact that there is a negative side to studying Homiletics is never a sufficient reason for abandoning it. What we need today is a more thorough study of this subject plus a real dedication to the Lord. Ein Blick in die Mennonit Geschichte Unsere Vorfahren, die Wiedertaufer, waren die wahrhaft mit Jesaja sagen konnten: “Herr, hi ich, sende mich.” Sie sagten dies nicht nur, so bewiesen es auch mit der Tat. Die Mennonitischen Kirche war am Anfanj Missionskirche. Deshalb verbreitete sie sich so si Weil sie erkannten, dass sie das wahre Evanj hatten, gingen die Wiedertaufer iiberall und pre die Botschaft, die die Staatsmanner als gefahrlic revolutionar ansahen. Ein jeder, der diese Bol verbreitete, stellte sein Leben in grosse Gefahr. 1 Simons, ein grosser Lehrer in der Mennonit Kirche, hatte das Folgende zu sagen iiber den g Auftrag des Herrn: “Wir verlangen mit gliih Herzen, sogar bis zum Verluss des Lebens un Bluts, dass das heilige Evangelium von Jesu ( in aller Welt gepredigt und gelehrt werden soli, Jesus es seinen Jiingem befahl. . . .” In der ersten Periode der Geschichte der M nitischen Bruderschaft waren ihre Missionsfelder 1 sachlich in der Schweiz, Siid-Deutschla nd, Ostf und in den Niederlandern. Im Jahre 1527 versami sich ungefahr sechzig Wiedertaufer in Aug Deutschland. Hier wurde es beschlossen Missio nach Basel und Zurich, Pfalz, Oberosterreich, Fri Salzburg, und Bayern zu senden. Nur eine kurz nach dieser Versammlung erlitten die meisten von den Martyrertod. Diejenigen, die ausgingen das Wort zu verkiin bestrebten sich mit ihren Zeugnissen und Pre das Volk zu erreichen. Manchmal wurden ihi strebungen auch wohl belohnt. In wenigen 1 nachdem sie bei einigen Stellen ankamen, ko sie neue Gemeinden mit den Bekehrten griindei Menno Simons schrieb einmal: “Es ist wahr wir manchmal in der Nacht dem Herrn dienen un Wort predigen miissen, ja, in der tiefsten Nacht Menno Simons eignen Worten war er die letzten zv Jahre seines Lebens heimatlos und ein fliichtig F ling, weil die Regierung einen Preis auf sein 1 gestellt hatte. Er hatte keinen Platz, wo er b konnte, um sichei zu rasten. Warum war er willig dieses zu leiden? Er Christus, und weil Christus ihn zuerst geliebt Sind wir auch so eifrig fur den Herrn?

Radio ation HCUE-5 is situated at Colta in the heart of uichua Indian country at an altitude of 11,000 feet, ur beginning is small, the transmitter is only 500 atts, and even though there are only 21 pre-tuned ceivers among the people, the potential is tremendous: 10,000 Indians within listening range, and the promise our Lord that His Word shall not return unto Him id. We broadcast every day from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in the Quichua language. So far all of our material is either taped or read, but as soon as we have more liberty of expression in this tongue we hope to produce more live programs. We have also begun to record a Sunday- School-of-the-Air type of program about once a week with the children from our boarding school nearby. Since Stan also services the radios that are placed, quite a bit of time is consumed in this way. One Indian brought in his radio with both the ground and the serial wires pulled out. A pig had caught his rope on the radio somehow and done the damage. Another time we were having trouble with the transmitter and were off the air so often that one Indian brought his radio in to fix because he wasn’t receiving enough. At present, the running expenses of this station are about half of what it costs to keep one missionary on the field. Even with only 21 receivers out, think of how many more people can hear the Gospel each day than one person alone could possibly reach. Would you like to have a part in keeping this ministry going or of getting more radios out? Brethren, pray! Sincerely, Stan and Marian Houghton. Weekes, Saskatchewan. Greetings from Northern Saskatchewan! Northern Canada is a mission field as needy as any in the world. The people who moved into our northern districts a generation or two ago were in many cases those not too interested in matters spiritual. They were the rough and ready element of our civilization. They moved into these northern areas, raised families, passed from the scene, and now these children of the pioneers have raised their own families. Thus we have in our Northland a large percentage of the populace who are already several generations removed from a sound Christian upbringing! The greatest problem in reaching these people for Christ is perhaps getting them interested in something that smacks of religion. In our Sunday school we try to offset this by offering prizes as an incentive to inviting others and to regular attendance. Good Christian films draw many adults that otherwise do not come. In the final analysis, however, we must admit that it is the Holy Spirit who awakes a desire in the hearts of men to seek those things which are above. There is a very pressing need for more Christians who would move into these districts, settle down and live sound Christian lives among the people. The young people especially need this support. When a youth takes a definite stand for Christ up here, he is pretty well ostracized by his friends. Usually even his parents will discourage a yieldedness to Christ. If at this point he had Christian friends to whom he might turn — what a difference it might make. Have you considered the Northland as a possible field of service? Yours in Christ, Ernest Funk.

It is thrilling to see the ' ing of the Lord in our lives. As I become more minted with this country, I am reminded more [ more of two quotations: one from the Bible, “We e unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely joweth with milk and honey.” Numbers 13:27, and other from a well-known hymn, “Where every o far, I am engaged mostly in language study, while n does most of the Church work with such help as in give her.

We also have services in three other places on way, so you see, it is really a full day’s expedition. 2 groups at these gatherings are small, but many of ; se present have shown a very definite interest.

In His service, [ Gil and Jean Reimer. Apartado 180, Chih., Chihuahua, Mexico. Almost two years have slipped by since I pa ed )ugh the doors of the Steinbach Bible Institute. To they seem but short years but during this time usands of lost souls have passed into the beyond lout hope and without God. Shortly upon arriving in Mexico, I began teaching school. I had only three pupils last year. This year however, the Lord has entrusted me with twenty-five pupils. I am assisting Bro. John Kornelsen in the E.M.C. Mission School at Quellen Colony. Two of my pupils and several of Bro. Kornelsen’s pupils have recently made professions of faith. We praise the Lord for the privilege that is ours in helping to train these young Christians for future service. The summer months were spent in language study in Chihuahua. We were privileged to be instructed by the foremost Professor in Chihuahua. We were afforded many opportunities to witness to him. He informed us that the greater percent of the Normal School students claimed to be Communists. Such is the future for the children of Mexico. We praise God for the liberty that still is ours to set up our own private schools without any obliga¬ tions to the Mexican Government. The question that often comes to us is, “how much longer will this door be open?” Will we have done all we could by then, or will we regret forever the loss that will be ours and also of those who will never hear? Please pray that “The Lord will send forth labourers.” Gratefully His, Margaret Unger. bei David Jones, 334 Horbranz Bregenz, Osterreich. Our Mission has an established work in Stuttgart, where I have been privileged to help along for the past months before I moved into Austria. Our main ministry there was with children. For some time we had 6 classes in different areas. We assisted a funda¬ mental church with classes in two old refugee camps and conducted our own classes in several apartment buildings that were opened to us. In some classes as many as 40 children attended. This of course created a problem because the little rooms in the apartments were too small. We are praying for more mothers to open their homes for this purpose, so that we can divide the classes and thus give each child more individual attention. The Lord has wonderfully blessed our ministry with several souls being translated from death into life. Now our responsibility is that of teaching them to walk with the Lord and getting them firmly grounded in the Word of Truth. Our hearts have been very much encouraged and strengthened as we have witnessed real growth in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ in these lives. At the Christmas program we gave them an opportunity to give a brief word of testimony. This is what 10 year old, sweet, sincere Elizabeth said, “Since I have accepted the Lord Jesus as my Saviour, I am much happier than I was before. Now I can pray, and after praying everything seems to work out so well.” She, as well as the others, is learning the secret and power of prayer. I’m sure your hearts would be thrilled as ours have been if you would hear these children take hold of the Lord in prayer every oppotrunity given to them in our meetings. Prayers on behalf of these Babes in Christ would be greatly appreciated. You will no doubt realize that the influence of this world can be very strong on such young lives, especially when they have no Christian backing in their homes. Pray, therefore, that they may be kept pure and in close fellowship with the Lord. Sincerely in Christ, Elizabeth Harder. For these whom I have mentioned it is too late to do anything more. There are however, still thousands that can be reached with the Gospel if more missionaries would come out. School teachers, maintenance workers, nurses, secretaries, workers for the literature work and Christian bookstore manager are needed. May the Holy Spirit move our hearts, wills and desires to help bring the Gospel to this needy land. As my personal testimony I want to say that it gives me great joy and satisfaction to be a missionary. Dora Friesen. Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mexico. Recently we attended the funeral of a mother who left a big family behind. Three women dressed in black came to pray. It almost made me feel sick to listen to them. Although little of the prayers could be understood, we noticed that almost every sentence began with, “Oh Holy Mary.” There was a repetition of, “Deliver this soul from the gates of hell.” When their “blasphemy” was finished we sang, “Where Could I Go But To The Lord?” The screaming that is usually heard at these Catholic funerals is almost unbearable. It is all so hopeless and pathetic. On witnessing a scene like this we, as missionaries, are challenged to re-dedi- cate our lives to a greater faithfulness in winning these lost Mexicans for Christ. One evening, just before Christmas a young father of four little children was brought to the clinic. We immediately saw that he had a severe attack of asthma. In his eyes was a fear and anxiousness that you always see in patients who struggle desperately to get their breath. We applied medicine to give him some relief. Then we explained the way of salvation and had prayer. He seemed ignorant concerning spiritual things but listened very attentively. We did all we could to help this man physically and spiritually. Next morning we were informed that he had passed away. Did he accept Christ? We do not know. In his last hours he had been unable to speak due to labored breathing. Soufriere, St Lucia, West Indies. From the first that Jean and I knew of this little place that boasted a rumshop, a dance hall and numer¬ ous dwellings we felt we ought to reach it with the gospel. So, in November ’61 we started out with the first contact. One Sunday afternoon a few of the Soufriere brethren and myself drove up the steep narrow road that would eventually take us to Migny. Would the owner of the hall allow its use every Friday night? No obligations! With high spirits we started in on the following Friday. People, curious people, flocked around soon after the little transistor record player began making music. They squatted on the floor, in the windowless windows, or on the scanty supply of benches nailed to the sides of the building. Twenty minutes of recorded music ended and the vocal music began. West Indian Christians pull most stops when they sing, and sing we did that first night. The “pasture” led the singing and gave the announcement concerning weekly meet¬ ings. The message was in Patois (pahtwah), by Mr. Joseph John Baptist, an elder in the Soufriere Bible Church. With all hands on deck we kept things under reasonable control. The folks thought our “service” not too much different than a political meeting. Things have improved a good bit. When asked how they would like two weeks of meetings, most replied in the affirmative. The hall owner declined — his son was a teacher in the Roman school and might get laid off if his church leaders found out. The Friday night meetings continued — attendance wavered but enough kept on coming that it was worthwhile. Although there was very little response to the gospel, an elderly man became quite interested and was deeply under conviction. Bible follow up began soon after. We met him on the road, his pipe well stoked. On the appointed day, Mr. Baptist and myself went to his home for our first Bible study. He did “out his pipe” upon entering the car. He can not read nor write. As we were to find out, his memory was still holding good. After spending time with this dear old struggling soul for a number of weeks his supply of tobacco ran out, and that for good. He threw his pipes away in our presence. His prayers have changed from the age old “St. Matthew and St. Gabriel” etc. to just plain talking with Jesus. He takes great pride in quoting 1 John 5:11-12 word perfect. This has taken the place of his former companion. Soon after his confession someone put poison into his pig’s food. The mother of six little pigs died. What would he do now ... as a Christian? Leave it with God . . . God was talking to him. What would he have done if he were not a Christian? Many pigs would have died in the neighbourhood to compensate for the loss of his. By October the hall had changed owner and we once more applied for two weeks of its use. “Carry on, carry on, only not on Saturdays and Sundays (to make room for dances).” Monday night we started off, fair to good. Tuesday, the owner gave me a nice hand of bananas, Wednesday under control of liquor he drove us all out, our three church benches flying out the door, and barred the doors and windows for good. Thursday we were once more back at Migny, only this time in a banana shed. Attendance kept up. A number were dealt with but no decisions. Wednesday, a week from the expelling, the meeting was rather very unkept and noisy. Thursday morning one of the fellows attend¬ ing the night before went bathing and never surfaced alive again. Sunday night concluded the services. There was not found one that wished to count the cost and go on to suffer for Christ’s sake. Through it all Mr. Alexander has gone on to greater maturity and was baptized on November 18, rejoicing in his new Saviour. People have a witness right in their midst in the life of this 70 year old saint. People have let up on the persecution because they too seem to realize that nobody can move him from his new found joy. Gladwin and Jean Plett. Blumenhof, Saskatchewan. Dear Co-Workers: In Psalm 37, verses 3 to 9 we have these admonitions that we as God’s children must keep in mind as we work for Him — “Trust in the Lord . . . Delight thyself also in the Lord . . . Commit thy way unto the Lord . . . Rest in the Lord . . . Wait upon the Lord.” In our own strength we will not go far in our service for God and in the battle against the Evil One. Yet when we realize that God’s strength is made perfect in weakness and we have the desire to do His work “in the Lord,” He will move His powerful arm, wonders to perform. Since September of 1961 we have made our home at Blumenhof, a small village, twenty-two miles south of Swift Current, Saskatchewan. The former pastor of this church was Brother Ed Stoesz, also a graduate of S.B.L God has blessed and is blessing His work here. Our Sunday school enrollment stands at 72, while 80 to 90 individuals come for the morning worship service. Our concern is that the believers might grow plus additions made of those who are yet without Christ. There are many avenues of service besides the regular pastoral duties. The workings of the Holy Spirit are evident, and we do praise God for this. The fall Missionary Conference was another time when God opened the windows of Heaven and poured down a blessing upon us. Our speakers were: Rev. Henry Neudorf from Africa; Rev. George Thomas, representing the Unevangelized Fields Mission, as wel l as Rev. and Mrs. Bill Kehler, who are both graduates of S.B.I. The main motto for this occasion was — “Eleventh Hour Labourers — The Night Cometh,” with a clock on the motto indicating that the time was eleven o’clock. In closing, these words quoted from Bob Pierce— “Never before has there been a need so great, so few to help, so much to do, so little time to do it!” In Him, Jake, Lena and Daryl Froese. ONE JUNGLE NIGHT The tom-toms thumped on all night, and the darkness shuddered round me like a living, feeling thing. I could not go to sleep, so I lay awake and looked, and I saw, and it seemed like this: That I stood on a grassy sward, and at my feet a precipice broke sheer down into infinite space, l looked, but saw no bottom, only cloud shapes, black and furiously coiled, and great shadow-shrouded hollows, and unfathom¬ able depths. Back I drew, dizzy at the depth. Then 1 saw forms of people moving single file along the grass. They were making for the edge. There was a women with a baby in her arms and another child holding on to her dress. She was on the very verge. Then I saw that she was blind. She lifted her foot for the next step . . . it trod air. She was over, and the children over with her. Oh, the cry as they went over! Then I saw more streams of people flowing from all quarters. All were blind, stone blind, all made straight for the pricipice edge. There were shrieks as they suddenly knew themselves falling, and a tossing up of helpless arms, catching, clutching at empty air. But some went over quietly and fell without a sound. Then I wondered, with a wonder that was simply agony, why no one stopped them at the edge. I could not. I was glued to the ground, and I could not call. Though I strained and tried, only a whisper would come. Then I saw that along the edge there were sentries set at intervals. But the intervals were far too great, there were wide, unguarded gaps between. And over these gaps the people fell in their blindness, quite unwarned, and the green grass seemed blood-red to me, and the gulf yawned like the mouth of Hell. Then 1 saw, like the picture of peace, a group of people under some trees, with their backs turned toward the gulf. They were making daisy chains. Sometimes when a piercing shriek cut the quiet air and reached them., it disturbed them and they thought it rather a vulgar noise. And if one of their number started to go and do something to help, then all the others would pull that one down. “Why should you get so excited about it? You must wait for a definite ‘call’ to go. You haven’t finished your daisy chains. It would be really selfish,” they said, “to leave us to finish the work alone.” There was another group. It was made up of people whose great desire was to get some sentries out, but they found that very few wanted to go, and sometimes there were no sentries for miles and miles at the edge. Once a girl stood alone in her place, waving the people back, but her mother and other relations called, and reminded her that her furlough was due, she must not break the “rules.” And, being tired and needing a change, she had to go and rest awhile, but no one was sent to guard her gap, and over and over the people fell, like a waterfall of souls. Once a child caught at a tuft of grass that grew at the very brink of the gulf, the child clung convulsively, and it called but nobody seemed to hear. Then the roots of the grass gave way, and with a cry the child went over, its two little hands still holding tight to the torn-off bunch of grass. And the girl who longed to be back in her gap thought she heard the little one cry, and she sprang up and wanted to go, at which her relatives reproved her, reminding her that no one is necessary anywhere — the gap would be well taken care of, they knew. And they sang a hymn. Then through the hymn came another sound like the pain of a million broken hearts wrung out in one full drop, one sob. And a horror of great darkness was upon ME, for I knew what it was — the cry of the blood. “Then thundered a Voice, the voice of the Lord, and He said, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I, send me. And He said, Go and tell this people . . . Jesus said, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature . . . And lo, I am with you always.” (Isaiah 6:8; Mark 16:15; Matthew 28:20). From Amy W. Carmichael’s “Things As They Are.” WJiafertArtA OA jtrXk cfo J ut J scumO urt Col. 5:13 A DVERTISING The Evangelical Mennonite Churches of Rosenort Pleasant Valley and Morris Extend their best wishes to the Graduates, Faculty and Students of the STEINBACH BIBLE INSTITUTE " Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
