57 ) The STAR 1964 THE 1964 STAR To you, our fellow students, may it recall the pleas¬ ures, the commitments, and the dedications that you have here experienced. To our future students may it serve as an invitation to come and partake of such spiritual bles¬ sings. To our friends everywhere may it be a constant re¬ minder that the students and staff of the Steinbach Bible Institute need your prayers on their behalf. This is our prayer for the ’64 STAR. equation In deep appreciation to you, Mr. Hoeppner, for your un¬ selfish Christian service, consecrated devotion to God, and prayerful leadership we gladly dedicate the ’64 STAR. As this book leaves our hands and goes into yours, we pray that it may convey the message which we have sought to implant in its pages. tatement of Jfattb — the Holy Scripture, both of the Old and the New Testa¬ ment, to be verbally inspired of God, infallible, and the supreme and final authority in faith and life. — in one God eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. — that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, bom of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true Man. — that man was created in the image of God, sinned and thereby incurred, not only physi¬ cal death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. Consequently, all human beings are born 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. — 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. — in the bodily resurrection of all men — the saints to everlasting joy and bliss, the lost to everlasting conscious torment. — that Christians are to live separated from the world, abstain from all carnal strife, worldly practice, worldly dress and worldly amusements. — that our generation is responsible for the complete evangeliz ation of this generation; that every believer carries part of this responsibility and should make the reaching of this ob¬ jective his life’s work.

Eidse, R.R. 1, Morris, Manitoba PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE S)ome ddentipyiny Ifificu op (podA IddeAAenqer Malachi 2:5-6. Every vocation and pursuit of life has certain marks that invariably identify and connect persons with their particular vocation. This is also markedly so in Christan circles. Would you be an effective minister of God? Would you be a usable person in the hands of the Almighty? You can! As a Christian you have received “all things that per¬ tain unto life and godliness”; yes, “exceeding great and precious promises”, 2 Pet. 1:3-4. It is in your hands whether you let these operate in your life. Shall we look at these marks. Malachi opens his prophecy with the revealing cry: “The burden of the Word of the Lord.” Surely he felt the afflictions of his people. They had forgotten God. They had sinned. They must be warned. They must be rebuked, for God will punish sin. This is the burden that marks the messenger of God. “Oh that my head were waters, and my eyes a fountain of tears that I might weep day and night for the slain ... of my people”, cried Jeremiah. “I must finish the work” (of redemption), Jesus said. “The love of Christ constrains me”, Paul says, “woe is me if I preach not the gospel”. If we are sharers of this type of compas¬ sion, people will listen. Fear of God controls the messenger. “Knowing there¬ fore the terror of the Lord we persuade men”, and again “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling”, comes from Paul by precept and example. The messenger of the Lord is God’s anointed. He pleads with men on God’s behalf. We have His message to deliver. There is nothing uncertain or shallow about this. Those who fear God have His indelible stamp on their spirit. No irreverence or levity has room here. Another identifying mark is that of the eye. When Isaiah “saw the Lord” he was broken. Paul was not dis¬ obedient to the heavenly vision. When Jesus saw the multi¬ tude, He was moved with compassion. Open eyes toward heaven will give open eyes toward the dire need of souls. We could also speak of the mark of the hand, a grip on “the sword . . . the Word of God”; that of the mouth, having “the law of truth”; that of the feet, “walking with the Lord”. Surely, if these marks will identify you, you will have the further mark of the messenger of God, who “turned many away from iniquity”. B. D. Reimer -An imperative ior dliriitian He Service If a Bible institute is to do justice to its divinely appointed task of preparing men and women for service at home and abroad, teacher and student must have an experient¬ ial knowledge of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Among many other things this know¬ ledge involves experiencing the Holy Spirit as the law of life in Christ Jesus, so that the law of sin and death within the believer can be overcome. This overcoming enables the believer to live victoriously. Such victory is an imperative for successful work for Christ. The apostle Paul experienced this bles¬ sed ministry of the Spirit. Paul could write concerning his own work, “For our Gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and in much assurance”. (I Thes. 1:5). May the SBI and all its supporters ex¬ perience this ministry of the Spirit. BEN HOEPPNER B.Th., B. A., M. A. Bible Department JWtan OfDaitk Scripture exhorts us to walk by faith and not by sight (II Cor. 5:7). For most of us this is easier said than done. Especially is this the case in an affluent society such as ours. What are the characteristics of a man of faith? First, a man of faith is one with whom the Lord can talk. Because of the close com¬ munion betv een God and Abraham, God could not but reveal His plans concerning Sodom and Gemorrah. Secondly, a man of faith can talk to God. When Abraham heard the awful punishment to be meted out to the sinful cities he spoke up for the cities. Only a man who is walking by faith would dare to speak up in the face of such revelation and hope to get a hearing. Thirdly, a man of faith is a man of in¬ tercession. Abraham’s initial reaction to the revelation of destruction was that of inter¬ cession on their behalf. Love made a most persistent and persuasive intercession. God is searching for men and women who will walk by faith. The world is waiting to see a man live his faith. Friend, are you a man of faith? harvey plett B. A., M. A., B.D. Bible Department Many heeded the call of Gideon, but only a relative few were chosen. Many heard the message of Good News from the lips of Jesus but only a relative few became fol¬ lowers of the message. There are three bil¬ lion people in the world today and yet only a few follow the way of the Saviour, Jesus Christ. In our day many young people are sway¬ ed by the standards of the masses. These standards are easily transmitted through modern means of communication. Since the individual wants to be accepted by the group, many individuals go against their better judgement and go with the crowd. Soon the group values are their own and they are integrated with the many. You and I need Christian courage to withstand the worldly many. Let us be deter¬ mined as the Apostle Paul when he states “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus”, so that we as God’s dedicated few may live to the spiritual benefit of the many. WILBERT C. LOEWEN B. A., B. Th., M. Ed. Bible Department “Whatever is kind and winsome and gracious . . . think on these things.” “But the fruit of the Spirit is . . gentle¬ ness, goodness . . .” A gracious person is pleasing, courteous and friendly; gentleness denotes refinement of manners and disposition; goodness signi¬ fies the unselfish, benevolent character of one who is motivated by love. Opportunities for exercising friendliness and courtesy are perhaps never more plenti¬ ful than in a crowded place. Ordinary cloth¬ es, well-peopled hallways and a rush of dut¬ ies, need not deter us from acts and words of gentleness. The common task, the familiar classroom, the usual associates — these form the tests of true refinement. Through education and discipline we may acquire the traits which some call the marks of a cultured person. In the Christian, graciousness, gentleness and goodness are evident when the personality is molded by the Holy Spirit. DOREEN REIMER, B. A. High School Department Christianity has often been judged by its relevance to everyday life. Although this is not the only criterion that should be ap¬ plied, it is a valid one. A religion that does not have the solutions to problems accent¬ uated by the interaction of a Christian with a non-Christian society, is a religion that mis¬ ses the mark. Christianity is radical, but even so, it must be practical, and must therefore be applicable to all phases of our lives. A non-practical faith must of necessity cause a dual approach to life: one a secular ap¬ proach, and one a religious approach. But this seems impossible. Our approach will be “either-or”, and not “both-and”. For the Christian, the secular world is seen as it re¬ lates to his religious life. But the secular world must be understood before we can say we have a balanced view of life, and be¬ fore we can effectively communicate spirit¬ ual ideas to a secular mind. This is where secular education fits into the program of the Christian. It is left for the individual to cor¬ relate the “secular” with the “religious”. HENRY FRIESEN, B. A. High School Department " Seeing is believing” — so tne ancient philosophers tell us. To them realitv is limit¬ ed to the world our senses reveal. Many peo¬ ple today, too, live by this principle and so strive only for the temporal, tangible things of the material world. But scientists declare that our senses cannot be trusted. Now scientists hope to find the meaning of reality in laboratories and observatories. This is still a materialistic, and hence quite inadequate, outlook. But in the Creator of all reality we do find the meaning of reality. Yes, the mater¬ ial world is real and important but the Bible insists that what is far more real, vital and important is the spiritual world. It declares. “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit.” It is, therefore, in loving Him, in communing with Him. that we can and must experience full, ultimate reality.

Her purpose for studying: to prepare for the Lord’s service. Her ambition: nurs¬ es’ training. Future: the mission field. “We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10. History with its relentless, untiring grasps has claim¬ ed another year of school. Looking back, we as students realize that the many expectations and comprehensions with which we entered the school have become reality and actual experiences. Indeed, we have been revitalized in the Lord through experiences in classes and chapel, meditation and prayer. In spite of many spiritual strug¬ gles, this has been a most wonderful year for us—a true milestone in our lives. May God reward those through whom He has made this year possible. Fellow student, this has, however, been only one step in God’s great plan for your life. Are you now willing to go on with the Lord? The centre of the Lord’s will is the only place for you. Are you ready to choose it? As a graduating class we are deeply conscious of the fact that our Bible School years have passed — all too swiftly. They seem but months as we pause in retros¬ pect. Have the past days, months, and years been well spent, or perhaps squandered? May God pardon our fail¬ ures! We have gained not only academically, but also spiritually. Enlightenment has come to us in many deep and precious truths. We have come to realize and exper¬ ience the abundant life “in Christ” — that life of fulness and victory. We have been convinced of the absolute necessity of dedicating our lives unreservedly to Him. Furthermore, we have “come to grips” with our obliga¬ tion of world evangelism. Fellow graduates, in view of the unlimited resources and opportunities at our disposal, let us yield all our time and talents to God so as to be His instruments in saving a lost humanity.

Here it comes! nnifc the Menace MY NORTHERN ONTARIO HOME It has been but a few short years since we, as a family of seven, made our home on the banks of the Moose River. There the shelters of several Indian trappers and a few railroad section men were huddled together hardly sixty miles from the saltwater of the James Bay. Those were the good days when, after the toil of chopping and hauling tamarack and spruce firewood, we’d enter our home¬ ly shanty greeted by a wall of warmth from the old stove. The aroma of sturgeon and bannock was welcome. Then beneath warm quilts there was rest for the weary as nightly we were lulled to sleep with the monotone chorus. Silhouetted against the glow, huskies pointed their noses at the prancing, swooping, then striding of the aurora borealis which burned its way through the ebony of the heavens. Oh, for school days to end, when I shall return . . . return to those people among whom I belong as an Ambassador for Him. Joyce Sharp SO THIS IS MEXICO? One of the most exciting experiences for girls at home in Mexico is going to the city. There are those girls who are fortunate enough to go twice a year but some of course never go. Would you like to come with me on one such shopping expedition? The excitement begins when we go to ask one of the businessmen (who might be sending out an¬ other truck for a load of gas) if his truck driver would take two passengers. The truck driver con¬ sents and informs us that we will be leaving at 4 o’clock in the morning. When shall we sleep? But who can sleep when we will be going to Chihuahua! So at the appointed time we start off. We are really on our way to Chihuahua. What a thrill! The first twenty-five or thirty miles are not too bad but now the driver slows down. We have come to the mountains. A steady bumpety-bump and jumpety-jump starts. After about two or three hours of crawling, climbing and descending we’ve covered a distance of approximately twenty miles. This road through the mountains is often referred to as the donkey trail through the canyon. At many places the road is so narrow that if two vehicles meet, one has to back up to a place where passing is possible. There’s the last hill and we can actually look out into the open again. We travel another fifty miles on the high¬ way and reach the city at nine o’clock, just when business opens. Here we are. We agree to meet at one o’clock, and off we go to do our shopping. At one we are back in the parking lot but there is no truck, no driver. How’s this? Here he comes and kindly in¬ forms us that he has his troubles and will not be able to leave before seven in the evening. So that’s that. We might as well make the most of this situ¬ ation. Let’s go and see some more of the city. ■— But what is this? We have met beggars, cripples, and .blind all through the day but this is something different. A little boy about eight with his little sister in his arm is sleeping on the sidewalk. We can see at the first glance that they are almost starved. Upon inquiring we are told that their parents have died and no one wants to care for them. " They won’t last long,” comes from a by¬ stander. Our hearts ache as we move on. We arrive at home at midnight, oh, so tired! As we nestle beneath our covers a feeling of ac¬ complishment overcomes us — for we have been in Chihuahua! Mexico’s need for better travelling facilities and physical help is striking, but truly great is her spiritual need. Thousands of Mexico’s people have never once heard a Gospel message, thousands more are bound by tradition, and all of these are headed for a Christless eternity. If the sight of a child forsaken by society grips one’s heart, how much more should the knowledge of these teeming multitudes on their way to hell grip the heart of a Christian. Mexico truly is a great mission field! Mary Komelsen PRAYER MEETING IN THE GIRLS ' DORMITORY Once a month the occupants of the girls’ dor¬ mitory gather for a united prayer meeting. The dean is also present. Clad in our night apparel we sit on the floor along the extending hall. The time is well spent as we begin with a song. After a few personal testimonies and special prayer requests the time of intercession begins. Our hearts are burdened for the needs of others. One verse that motivates us to prayer is “If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.” John 14:14. Though the fruits of intercessory prayer are often invisible, God will someday reward according to our faithfulness. Mary Anne Eidse FIRST IMPRESSION OF GIRLS ' DORM. Exhausted and weary, I arrived at the Girls’ Dorm. But when I opened the door, exhaustion turn¬ ed into exasperation! The floors were “caked” with everything from mortar dust to bricks and boards. Bed upon bed was turned upside down, and mat¬ tresses were “strewn” from one end of the room to the other. Right then and there I came to the full realization that all this “mess” must be cleaned up before we could actually call this our “Home Sweet Home”. On hands and knees we began to scrub and polish, polish and scrub—. Later as I manuvered down the dusty hallway, girls were busily working attempting to help each other make our Girls’ Dorm a comfortable and a habitable home. Minutes “flew” by and our rooms and the hallway began to look inviting. How we rejoiced to see the neatness and cleanliness revealed as a result of our strenuous lab¬ our. That night the simple, four letter word, “rest”, meant more to me than ever before. As I stretched my weary body, a still small voice reminded me that there was rest not only for the body but also for the soul. Though my first impression of the Girls’ Dorm, was varied .things have changed, and now many hours of blessing are spent there. Dorothy Brown THE SCHOLAR He came into the library with a vigorous and pur¬ poseful step, swiftly swept the room with his eye, found a suitable seat and sat down. He impatiently shoved his hand into his brief case, pursed his lips as if debating which subject to study, and then with a toss of his head pulled out his mathematics text, quadrile exercise, and notebook, and started jotting down figures and drawing lines on diagram paper with great zest. Occasionally he’d stop the vigorous motion of his pencil, screw up his face, chew his lower lip, suck the tip of his pen, and then with a twitch of his mouth continue his scribbling, wagging his head from note book to text book to check whether he was still on the right course. I could not but conclude, that he was enjoying his maths tremendously. Ron Penner RESTHAVEN VISITATIONS “Variety is the spice of life. " How true this is even at S. B. I.! One of the varieties we students enjoy is the weekly visitation to the Resthaven Home in Steinbach. Every Tuesday night ,a group of six girls leaves for Resthaven for the purpose of bringing a little cheer into the hearts of our elderly citizens. Arriving at the beautiful, spacious home we are heartily welcomed at the door by the beaming faces of those who are already waiting for us. First of all we assemble in the sitting room to sing a few songs over the P. A. This carries our 4 voices into every room in the home. After a few » favorite hymns we divided into groups of two, and a the individual rooms are visited. It is here our hearts are wonderfully warmed. It is also here where we realize these dear people are real individuals with their own peculiar prob- 1 lems and trials. What a privilege to sing comforting songs of Jesus’ love and care to a weary, bedridden saint, and 1 see tears of thanksgiving begin to flow down wither- f ed cheeks! In another room, we are the ones who are kindly, but earnestly admonished to keep our I faith. As we walk down the long, wide corridors we have an opportunity to stop and converse with 1 those who have come out of their rooms to visit with Soon it is time to leave for scho ol again. While ■ we are putting on our coats and preparing to go we are told over and over again, “Come again soon.” Our hearts are then lifted in deep gratitude to God for the priceless privilege given to us in sharing our I gospel with others. Margaret Warkentin WEEKENDS The closing bell rings! ■ Great joy comes to us when the weekend 9 finally arrives after a week of much thinking and ■ rushing from class to class. Now we are able to f relax. We scurry to our dorm rooms to say good- ■ bye to those who shared life with us during the ■ week, and are now going home. After they have ■ left, an air of loneliness and almost sadness pre- ■ vails because we wish we could have joined them. ■ By supper time we have recovered from our me- ■ lancholy and are ready for the delicious supper. ■ Study period is observed on Friday evening as it ■ is any other evening. A comparatively empty library ■ causes us to leave our books as soon as permissible A and seek companionship in the dorm. Saturday morning is gratis morning, when even ■ work can become fun. Scrubbing floors or washing windows, usually considered a laborious task, be- ? comes a pleasure. At about this time a rich aroma reaches us from the kitchen and we can hardly ■ wait for twelve-thirty. Afternoons are usually spent in studying, read- ■ ing in the library, or JUST chatting in our rooms, ■ relating amusing incidents which happen frequent- ■ ly in the dorm. Sunday morning finds us hustling around get- ■ ting ready for church. While some are fortunate I to receive a ride others enjoy the brisk walk to their home church. Afternoons are quiet, as students on campus rest, read, or answer the letters which beg for at¬ tention. As a result there is little activity till evening. After the evening service there is the usual chattering and laughing in the dormitory halls, as the weekend draws to a close and the students return. Such is the weekendlife at S. B. I. Carol Peters GREEK KALAY HAYMERA! (Good day!) Thus Mr. Hoeppner greets his seven Greek students on Tues¬ day, Wednesday, and Friday at 8 A.M. sharp. He leads in a short devotional, often enriched through his knowledge of Greek and immediately plunges into the lesson, his main aim being to get the trans¬ lation exercise at the end of each lesson as quickly as possible. Occasional bursts of laughter accom¬ pany some student’s attempt at reading or trans¬ lating, but on the whole, you would find them con¬ centrating intently on the lesson to be conquered. Now you may ask, as many students have, why take Greek? We are looking forward to a deeper insight in¬ to Biblical interpretation through word study. For example, the English word “comfort” has five words for it in Greek — each with a different meaning. In II Corinthians 1:4 PARAMUTHEMAI is used which means “I go along side you, I speak friendly to you, I say to you: you are not alone.” The Greek word for boldness in Hebrews 4:16 means we have the right to say anything and everything to God. Secondly we expect to receive a deeper insight into the problems of translation. Already our burden has increased for those missionaries engaged in language study or translation work. Truly it is a challenge, and an opportunity to depend on our Lord for guidance. “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” This includes mastering the Greek language so as to be better fit for service in God’s Kingdom. Esther Loewen EVANGELISTIC SERVICES “From October 25 through till the 31st, evan¬ gelistic meetings were held in the school auditor- rium. Rev. William Falk of Winnipeg was the speaker. There were sessions in chapel periods and in the evenings. Let us be much in prayer for Rev. Falk and these meetings.” This announcement was made in morning chapel. Christians prayed and searched their hearts for sins which would hinder the Spirit’s working. The time for the services arrived. Ladies’ trios, a double trio, and male quartets rendered messages in song; opportunity was given for testimonies. The Spirit moved as Rev. Falk spoke. God’s loving concern, the devil’s cunning attacks, the individual’s free choice, the backslider’s great loss, and the Christian’s great gain and responsibilities were fer¬ vently emphasized! It is inconceivable how anyone could reject God after hearing these heart-searching messages. Eter¬ nity alone will reveal how hearts responded! Mary Anne Thiessen THROUGH THE LIBRARY WINDOW As I sit in the far corner of the dimly-lit library room of the S. B. I. my gaze drifts out the large window. In the principal’s small yard two youngsters are happily playing with their trucks. Above a lope duck mournfully swoops down towards the shimmering water of the large lagoon. Slowly my eyes seek the western horizon where the bright sun, now but a sinking ball of fire, paints the blue sky in attractive tints of red, yellow, and violet. A grey cloud of smoke rises mightily from the distant factory hiding the beauty of the sunset and casting a shadow on the swiftly moving groups of the hung¬ ry students making their way to the kitchen. Heavi¬ ly laden with a big stack of books, an ambitious student hurries by, hoping to be on time for a delicious supper. Picturesque as the view may be, I must remember that my duty is still towards my books. Mary Klassen 111 T1 ■La . :• vC » tk ■ H ' ll j $§Kjjjj£ ■ i .

We have experienced rich blessings in fellowship with many true be¬ lievers. This is a fairly large congregation. Sunday School enrollment is approximately 212. We need to make many calls, for there are always needy people in every community. We have three children in elementary school, James 12, Delores 10, Marvin 9. Loren will be a beginner next year. They are all pleased with the mild weather here in the southland. The boys some¬ times wish that they could go skating and play hockey, but they soon forget . . . May we always be willing to do God’s will. Sincerely in Christ, Jac. N. and Mathilda Hiebert Orange Walk, British Honduras “Those who have come to believe in God should see that they engage in honourable occu¬ pations, which are not only to the honour of them¬ selves, but also useful to their fellowmen.” Titus 3:8, (New English). The choice of an “honourable occupation” may spell the success of every Chritsian. After the won¬ drous gift of salvation has been received by faith and the individual equipped with grace and know¬ ledge he is prepared to step out in service for the Master. Upon completion of studies at the S.B.I., it was my privilege to serve in the underdeveloped country of British Honduras for two years. The first three months of my term were spent in service as co-worker in the Mennonite Central Committee store. Here the agricultural products from the Mennonite farmers were purchased, pre¬ pared, and sold to the general public . . . many con¬ tacts were made with government officials, natives, Old Colony and Kleine Gemeinde Mennonite immi¬ grants. This was a unique position in which to become acquainted with the people, the customs of the various folk and to learn of their immediate need. Hereafter, together with a nursing team, I set out to make direct contacts with the colonists. The first few months were spent in construction of a building, which served as dwelling quarters for the personnel. Then weekly trips were made to each of the Blue Creek and Mennonite colonies. Medicine and simple advice to cure various sick¬ nesses and ailments, proved an effective way to gain the confidence of many. In order to serve the natives, I joined hands with Mr. Gordon Lee to establish an agricultural demonstration plot. With time we were able to prove various points in management of pasture, in methods of cultivation and planting, and in seed selection. Thus, as the standards of efficiency rose in the world around us it was a joy to see the native converts adopt some of these methods. This enabled him to devote more time to reach his fellowman for Christ. The fellowship with missionaries of various Evangelical missions was an experience all of its own. To witness new areas open to the Gospel, to sit in on evenings when the word was preached in one of the villages or towns, to see young Christ¬ ians grow in His grace, to see and share in build¬ ing erf new places of worship affords unsurpassed rewards in occupation for the Master, “In the Name of Christ”. Jake Thiessen I am a West Indies Mission candidate for the country of Surinam, South America. I will be teaching in an American school to which the mis¬ sionaries are sending their children also. I expect to leave for Surinam in late November, 1963. Yours for Souls, Margaret Klassen In the summer of 1962 the Lord led us to leave the S.B.I. and opened the door for us here at the Austin Collegiate to work with a staff of four other teachers. Naturally, there is a great dif¬ ference between a Christian High School and a secular High School. My eyes have been opened to see the need in our country for Christian tea¬ chers. While opportunities for witness by Word may be limited, the responsibility for witness by life is always present. The Lord needs living examples of His grace in these public places. With our coming to Austin, the Lord has also permitted us the privilege of fellowship and ser¬ vice in our home church at MacGregor. Both El¬ vina and I teach Sunday School classes, help in the choir and have responsibilities in the Young Peo¬ ple’s Committee. Elvina has also taught a mid¬ week children’s class in church and is again con¬ ducting a Good News Club in Austin. I serve as assistant Superintendent in the Sunday School. The greatest blessing during the past year oc¬ curred in June when 4-month-old Gerald Wayne came to live with us. He has already given us much joy and happiness. We realize our own inadequacy to train a young life and trust the Lord for wis¬ dom in this task. We extend warmest greetings to all our friends of the past from S.B.I. “Let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.” Hebrews 12:1b, 2a. Menno Elvina Hamm Greetings in our Saviour’s name. It is always good to hear from S.B.I. Our thoughts often return to Bible School days and we wish sometimes that we could relive them. They were certainly among the greatest days of our lives and we shall never forget the many blessings that we shared there with all those who studied with us in preparation for the Lord’s service. Now we are scattered far and wide and I’m sure will never be re-united again as a student body until we will be together in eternity. Dorothy and I are happy to be in the service of the Lord. We count it a real privilege to be His chosen vessels to proclaim the glorious message of salvation. At present we are pastoring a small church near Mission City, British Columbia. The |church is located in an area where there are many unchurched people. In fact only a small percent¬ age of them do attend church anywhere at all. It is hard to get any of the adults to come out. Our work centers largely around children. Per¬ haps over half of our attendance on Sunday morning is made up of children. Many of these are from very ungodly homes so that they have no push from at home. Therefore, we find that quite frequently some will drop out. We believe three children have been saved. The one is not allowed to come any¬ more because her father is a Roman Catholic and the other is now being sent to the Lutheran Church. The third, a boy of about twelve, is coming faith¬ fully and we trust will be the means of eventually reaching the parents as well. On Friday nights we have a meeting with the children, ages six to four¬ teen. We get up to forty children out to these meet¬ ings and we do get some into our S.S. by this means as well. In closing I would say this, we could certainly use a young Christian couple here who have had some Bible School training and who have a desire to serve the Lord. Yours in His Service, Randall, Dorothy, and Valerie Heinrichs We are farming fifteen miles southwest of Portage, specializing in sugar beets and sunflowers. We fellowship in the Portage E.M.C., and are both teaching a Sunday School class. Henry teaches the Junior boys and I the intermediate girls. The Lord has blessed our home with two boys. Roger Allen will be four in February; Lloyd Samuel was two in October. May the Lord richly bless you at S.B.I. Sincerely in Christ, Henry and Mary Giesbrecht When I gave my graduate testimony five years ago, this is what I said, “I intend to take high school, following that a three year nurses’ course and then I expect to go into full time missionary service”. Those plans were good, but the Lord had chosen a different path. The closed doors to nurses’ training brought me back to S.B.I. for office work. In spite of believing that I was in the Lord’s will I was disappointed to find myself at S.B.I. and of all places in Steinbach, a place where there were so many Christians. Why could I not serve else¬ where? However, as I continued to seek the will of God I was convinced that office work and help¬ ing in my local church was as much a service as any other. At present I am at the S.B.I. Balancing books, counting cash, correspondence, buying and selling, and attending to many unnoticed, yet important lit¬ tle duties, are the procedures of the day. One lady asked me, “Does it not seem worthless to spend your time at work like this when you could foe min¬ istering to people and sowing the seed of life?” My answer: " No, ‘I would be simply used, Spending myself in humble task or great, Priest at the altar, keeper at the gate, So be the Lord requireth just that thing, Which at the needful moment I may bring. O joy of serviceableness divine!’ ” Helen Harms Greetings with I Timothy 6:11, 12 The Lord has led us in a wonderful way, step by step, all these years and we praise Him for it. We have lived in Fresno for the last six years and attend the Butler Avenue M.B. Church where Aaron is the assistant pastor. He also teaches German in a high school. There are many opportunities here in Fresno for witnessing. The Holy Spirit doesn’t want us to work for Him, He wants to do the work through us. It is my privilege to work in the General County Hospital witnessing and distributing Christ¬ ian literature to the patients; and to visit the people at Twilight Haven, a Rest Home near our place. Our boys, Don and Robert, both teen agers, are Christians and live for the Lord. Sincerely, Aaron and Anna Warkentin WHY I COME TO GOOD NEWS CLUB I come to Good News Club because I want to learn about the scriptures and God’s teachings and plans for us. I enjoy Good News Club for myself very much, but I feel that there are some pupils who come just to foe naughty and act smart. People should come, but not to be naughty because they are “stealing” the story from those who want to listen and get something out of it. But other¬ wise Good News Club is fpn and interesting because we learn new songs and hear stories from the Bible which we have often heard before but we get something new out of it. Joanne “Hello there!” Now I’ll tell you why I go to Good News Club. I like to hear the Bible stories. I go to Good News Club because I love God. Your friend, Wesley The reason why I come to Good News Club is because I like to learn verses, I like to hear stories about the Bible, I like to sing his praises, and I like to see you each week. I go because’ I love my Lord. Your friend, Dorothy Our Missionaries Safety in the Uower Crumbling towers and jagged ruins of once- impressive castles dot the European landscape. These symbols of power and security no longer de¬ mand submission or offer shelter to anyone. Wise King Solomon recognized the importance of a tow¬ er that will not decay when he wrote: “The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous run¬ neth into it and is safe.” (Proverbs 18:10) The challenge of Gospel broadcasting brought the Janz Team to Europe in 1955. Letters pouring in from listeners all over German-speaking Europe, proved that the gospel was ‘the power of salvation to everyone that believeth”. Requests to conduct evangelistic meetings came from many individual churches as well as from pastors’ associations. The Team took up this new challenge. Eternity will reveal the complete record, but God has allowed us to see thousands of people responding to the gospel invitation. Multitudes have turned their lives over to Christ. One of our greatest concerns is to do solid follow¬ up in order that “the fruit may remain”. As part of this follow-up program we are helping existing churches to establish or expand Sunday Schools. Regular Bible teaching for all age groups has hardly been known in this country. Now that many ohurches are anxious to begin, it is our privilege to assist by: offering Bible-centered graded mat¬ erial, conducting Sunday School conventions, and training lay people to help in their own churches and communities. Adapting, translating, and producing the Scrip¬ ture Press material in German, has been a mam¬ moth undertaking. However, it is already proving to be worthwhile. News from many groups now using the material is most encouraging. One Sun¬ day school in Munich started classes for adults for the first time a few months ago. Now they have more than a hundred enthusiastic participants and report the results are greater than they ever dreamt possible. Our particular part in this ministry consists of training counsellors for the Crusades, super¬ vising the production and promotion of the Sunday School material, and conducting Sunday School conventions. If this sounds like a great task, be as¬ sured that it is. The challenge is great! However, God is prospering His work before our eyes. He is giving joy and strength to carry out His call upon our lives. We desire to point men, women, and children to the " Tower” where they can find eternal refuge. Mr. Mrs. John Peters Florastr. 7 Reinack Bl. Switzerland J amayala J eynote4 What, actually, are we endeavoring to accom¬ plish here in Congo? By the grace of God we are seeking to fulfill the great commission (Matt. 28: 18-20) as it applies to this new republic. The first part of verse 19 could be translated: “After having gone, make disciples . . .” The going is assumed. It, therefore, is taken for granted. This passage emphasizes more the task of the com¬ missioned ones than the commissioning itself. What, then, is our responsibility? 1. “Make disciples”—Equipped with our “two- edged sword”, the “living and active” Word, we can expect that men will be ’’cut to the heart”, and that people will become new creatures in spite of the difficulties of cross-cultural communication. We make a practice of asking for a definite commitment after the proclamation of the gospel. Usually there is some response. Kashishi Village was mourning the death of its chief. Ten Congolese indicated their decision to repent after being challenged with eter¬ nal realities. Recently, at the Leper Colony six heeded the appeal. Follow-up seeks to conserve these initial responses. Investigation frequently re¬ veals: victory, partial or complete; or defeat, part¬ ial or complete. These activities are geared not only to reach the unsaved, but also to inspire the shepherds of the flock. After I had underlined the necessity of the invitation, one of our Christian workers re¬ marked, “I have become convinced. That man would not have come today without the invitation.” 2. “Baptizing them”—Congolese pastors and evangelists conduct instruction classes, and the former administer baptism. 3. Teaching them to observe all that I have com¬ manded you.”—In my opinion, this last clause in¬ cludes Jesus’ teaching regarding the temporal needs of people. The missionary, motivated by the love of Christ, can’t afford to ignore the temporal long¬ ings and aspirations of the masses. Jesus didn’t. Here in the newly independent Congo we must strive to understand our peoples’ struggles, hopes, and fears — and assist where practical. Christian¬ ity affects a person wherever it finds him (Matt. 25). I am fully aware of the fact that the primary focus here is spiritual nurture (but within a tem¬ poral context). It is in this third phase of the great commission that we most keenly sense our inade¬ quacy. What is being accomplished often seems so meagre. We hope and pray that our Bible School, Bible Institute, Theology School, Secondary School, and private counseling sessions do leave an indelible imprint. Fray with us, will you? Ben and Helen Eidse Hop e, Faith, Charity and Grace anama Preaching, teaching, and healing was the Lord’s combined command in proclaiming the Gospel. In Luke 9:2 we read: “He sent them to preach the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” Four years ago the Lord sent us to a large, needy, and almost forgotten area in Panama, the Atlantic Coast. It has been my privilege to work with Linda Reimer, R.N., in the work the Lord has given us here. Today we thank the Lord for a mission home, •church, and medical clinic on this coast, and for (those who have made this work possible. We use different means in trying to reach every creature with the plan of salvation. Many times it’s done through house visitation — then there are those who faithfully attend the services, and the children, who come to Bible Club every Friday. Lately the national believers started their own little work five miles down the coast in the settlement of the Holland Dutch Company. Others hand out tracts during the week. Several have come to know the Lord through studying the St. John Bible Course. And last, but not least, many are being reached through the medical work. A Bible story or short message is always given to the patients before they receive physical help. Many have come to know the Saviour in this way. I am thinking especially of one lady, Senora Sabina, who helped to crowd the clinic’s waiting room one day. The number of the patients were being called — 1, 2, 3, 20, 58 and 71 which was Senora Sabina’s card. She quickly gave her com¬ plaints but nothing too serious seemed to bother her physically. Oh yes, she could have given many complaints. Senora Sabina had only one eye to serve her sight in this world. Many days she must have gotten tired as she carried wood, water and pounded the rice for her family and several grandchildren. Besides that, Senora Sabina had had a stroke but the Christians prayed and she was marvelously restored to health. Yes, she could complain about many of the comforts of life which she was lacking. However, that day Senora Sabina was occup¬ ied with a greater need in her life. Finally she asked . . . " Would you have time to help me accept the Lord as my personal Saviour?” Some time later Senora Sabina married the man with whom she had lived for forty-four years. Then the day came when she obeyed the Lord in His command to be baptized and to testify to the world of her decision to follow the Lord. Pray for us as we try to reach the Panaman¬ ians with the Gospel, teach the believers, and give help to those that are in physical need. Helen Goertzen PARAGUAY May I introduce you to this young couple here? They are Adolfo and Tina Schwartz. Adolfo and Tina were two of our most faithful students in school, and made very good progress. At the beginning of this school year, Tina’s fa¬ ther came to John Toews, the missionary, and in¬ formed him that Adolfo and Tina wished to get married. They are still both very young, Tina about fourteen, and Adolfo may be seventeen. By ex¬ perience, we have learned that we cannot just say, “No, they are too young,” but rather must find a logical excuse for postponing the wedding date. They are advised to attend school one more term and the suggestion was made, that since Anne, my sister, was planning a visit here, why not have the wedding then. Good, they were convinced, but oh how often the question was asked, “When is your sister coming?” Tina and Adolfo were not as much concerned as the parents and relatives. Finally the day came: October 12. The wedding feast was held in the village under some big trees right after the morning service. It consisted of “Asado”, ribs roasted over an open fire, “Guiso”, rice and meat stewed together, and pancakes made out of flour, salt and water. Two o’clock in the afternoon was the time set for the wedding ceremony. It was arranged that the bride and groom come to my house to get washed and dressed for this occasion. The hands of the clock were coming closer and closer to two and we time¬ conscious people were getting impatient, yet no one showed up. Finally John Toews went to the village to check the delay. Tina was just on the run to catch a horse to ride to the mission. They were married even though the service began half an hour later. How can we expect them to go by the clock, when they have none? Adolfo and Tina are the first couple here, who were both baptized believers before they married. We have high hopes for them. As a rule we have much trouble with young married couples not getting along and living in adultery. No complaints have been heard about this couple so far. Pray for them and others, that they may build real Christian homes, for they are the ones that will make up the future church. Yours in His Service, Sara Loeppky (juest Speakers REV.

As a result, we start our work while the day is yet new. That means, we rise quite some time before the students do. Since we must be ready to meet them when they are ready to meet us, we find it essential to go to the throne of grace for guidance, wisdom, and strength before we embark on our day’s work. In the kitchen we may put our preaching into practise. Here also, we are often tested in our work. We, however, don’t get marks or remarks, but thanks for the comments. We know that there is room for improvement in our work and also in the kitchen facilities. Our latest improvement has been the dough mixer. Thank you, Alumni! Mr. Wilbert Loewen, by his daily visits, is also doing his part in providing edibles for the kitchen. The students help along, too, and we do our share in contributing to their duties. For example, we see to it that the dishwashers will have enough dishes to wash, and that the one who does the floors at night will notice that we have been tracking the floor. The boys who are on vegetables are still wait¬ ing for an answer to, “Why do carrots have to be peeled?” All told, we enjoy our work and firmly believe that the students enjoy their work in the kitchen, and may we say, “The meals too” ?

Conwell (1843-1925) Greatness consists not in the holding of some future office, but really consists in doing great deeds with little means and the accomplishment of vast purposes from the private ranks of life. To be great at all one must be great here, now. He who can give to this city better streets and better sidewalks, better schools and more colleges, more happiness and more civilization, more of God, he will be great anywhere. Let every man or woman here, if you never hear me again, remember this, that if you wish to be great at all, you must begin where you ar and what you are now. He that can give to his city any blessing, he who can be a good citzen while he lives here, he that can make better homes, he that can be a blessing whether he works in the shop or sits behind the counter or keeps house, whatever be his life, he who would be great anywhere must first be great in his own hometown.
