. J± 0 7 h From villages and farms, busy metropolises and orchards, from hills and prairies, mountains and plains, from all different walks of life we have come to the Steinbach Bible Institute. Here we have lived, studied, worked and played, sung and wor¬ shipped our Great God and Master, who has given us a command for which we are responsible. Another school year is history at the Institute and in this book we wish to portray our school, its activities_our goal and our training ground. John Wiebe 2 trftcatton To you, our prayer supporters, we, the Star Staff, dedicate this edition. May it serve as a reminder of our thankfulness to you, for your prayers jliaiemettt of Jlfattt] WE BELIEVE I - 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. - that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true Man. IV - 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 born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God. VIII - in the personal, literal return of die 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 die reaching of this objective his life ' s work. •©trertors Executive of the S.B.

My Testimony I am glad for the opportunity of sharing with you some of my ex¬ periences, let you look into my life and rejoice with me in the goodness of our great God and Saviour, Jesus Christ. I thank God for godly and pious parents, who by precept and constant practice, patience and compassion provided a home where love and respect for our fellowman, fear of God and a deep desire to please Him and serve Him was the everyday atmosphere. However, I did not know that a child could be saved, and consequent¬ ly faced many years of misery under fear of God’s righteous judgment, in spite of my early childhood peace with God. The deep settled peace of God became mine again when as a youth I gave my heart and life to the Lord at the first revival meetings I ever attended. The joy of the assurance of sins forgiven, and the thrill of fellowship with God restored was almost more than I could bear. This also gave to me the keen desire to be an instrument in the hands of God to give to others what I had experienced. Since then it has been my privilege to have been connected with various soul-winning endeavors, such as revival campaigns both in and out of churches, in halls, tents and so on, in the Bible Institute in preparing Christians to serve more fruitfully, and in different types of conference work. Looking back over the thirty five years of my Christian life, I can testify to the goodness of our blessed Master. I must confess that many times I have had to say " Oh, that I had been more faithful. " But I can also testify that the small measure in which I did serve the Lord has abounded in joy unspeakable, and makes me long for many more years in which to serve the Lord, if it be His will, and look for that " blessed hope of His soon appearing. " Ben D. Reimer - principal It is Written " It is written " , said Jesus. Jesus said these words when he was tempted of Satan. This was the primary weapon he had to combat the evil forces as they were being hurled upon him with all the dynamic and evil intent of Satan himself. All other arguments were futile. Only the written word of God was able to force Satan into the background and leave Jesus to conclude his ministry for which he had been sent by the heavenly Father. How potent the words, in that hour, it is written. Today men and women accept the authority of the printed page. A young person may advance a new thought and he may be questioned by others as to the validity of it. So he counters and says, " I read it in a book. " This seems to give to those who listen a sense of inadequacy to stand against something that has been written. Christians also find them¬ selves in a similar situation when reading various articles on the subject pertaining to their faith and living. The danger likes in the act that not all of those facts recorded and thoughts promoted are necessarily the truth according to God ' s Word. Yet the effect of, IT IS WRITTEN, remains. In the Bible Institute we desire to use this term in its highest and most influential sense. This is to consider it as what is written in God ' s Word. God ' s Word is the infallible truth revealed to us. Jesus said, " It is written. " REV. BEN D. REIMER MR. JAKE PETERS English, Psychology ' Wy V«- ( 3’o ‘S c uJre.

WILERT LOEWEN Jfatultg Christian Education Public Speaking MR. HENRY HIEBERT Music REV. HARVEY " PCSST Church History, Biblical Introduction MR. HENRY FRIESEN English, Science, History MR. EDWIN PLETT Theology, History The way Christ and His disciples constituted a school of teaching, witnes sing, and prayer (Lk. ll:lf), so must the SBI if they are to fulfill the God- appointed task. Exactly what is essential in order to be a successful school of prayer? Let a twofold answer suffice here. 1) A proper God-consciousness is needed. When the individual is conscious of the omnipotence of God, he will exercise implicit trust--a trust which enables God to work unrestrictedly (Mt. 21:22). When the individual is keenly aware of the omnis¬ cience of God, he will not doubt His wisdom--a wisdom which is essential for a total acceptance of His will in all relationships (Rom. ll:33f). When the individual is persuaded of the omnipresence of God, he may face the problems of life resolutely (Mt. 28;18f). When the individual is aware of the absolute holiness of God, he will exercise the proper awe and fear, which is due to the Creator of the heavens and the earth (Isa. 6 : lf). When the individual realizes the greatness of the priest¬ hood of Christ, he will have a joyful confidence in approaching Him (Heb. 4:15,16). 2) A proper concept of satisfaction is needed. David says, " If I regard iniquity in my heart, the kLord will not hear me " (Ps. 66:18). John adds, ■ Whatsoever we ask, we receive of him because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight " (1 John 3:22). Let us as a Bible Institute seek to get and main¬ tain a proper God-consciousness and a proper life of holiness. God’s design for the Institute will then be executed. IV rvV M ' In the past year I have had a growing concern for our expression of the great commission. There is no question concerning the universality and the relevancy of this Word to the Church in each age. It is, however, in applying this truth that a question arises. The commission says that we are to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, to teach them to observe all things and to baptize them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. There is a threefold task in this commission. The three are " make disciples " , " teach them to observe " , and " to baptize " . That is, the mission of the Church is a comprehensive program. This raises the concern I referred to. The com¬ mission as well as the rest of the New Testament teach a total personal involvement of each Christian in this mission of the Church. Are we at times seek¬ ing to avoid involvement by paying someone to go for us? Are we avoiding involvement under the half- truth of " Some are called to go, some are called to pray, many are called to give " ? Where do we find Scriptural teaching to support such fragmentation of the mission of the Church? Is not the tenor of the New Testament more consonant with the idea that " ALL are called GO, ALL are called to PRAY, ALL are called to GIVE " ? That is, you are a witness where you are. You can¬ not relegate the witnessing to a select few. I un¬ derstand my Bible to teach that ALL Christians are ministers of reconciliation, i. e. I am a missionary and I cannot pay somebody else to do the job for me. What kind of a missionary am I? Harvey Plett Ben Hoeppmer " Far from the maddening crowd. . . . . isolated, removed, just by our comfortable selves, we once more this year developed a small society of our own. Our activities took up most of our waking hours, occupied most of thought patterns in one way or another, limited our contacts with people mostly to our fellow-students and teachers. We chose this recessed environment for study, for work, for spiritual and academic development. Many a dagger has been hurled at the private school because of this apparent attempt of removing students and teachers from the " maddening crowd " and placing them in an ivory tower where reality or the real world is non-existent, and an illusory, idealistic world is created, only to become obsolete the moment we are again in the real world. Whatever the charges are, we, who are connected with this school are quick to rise to the defence. The students did not come here to be brain¬ washed. The school does not exist to produce social misfits (that can be accomplished more effectively by less painful means.) The teachers did not look for a cloister when they accepted positions here. None of us openly claim to be hermits. On the other hand, a continuous effort is made to meet the public, to face reality in the various avenues of practical work, to analyze the " outside " situation, and to take issue with it. The entire purpose of this school is and shall remain, to train and equip men and women to more effectively fulfill our Lord ' s commandment of preaching the gospel of repentance and peace to all, whether through the means of teaching in the schools of our province, through the means of nurs¬ ing, through the means of any other profession or work. Henry K. Friesen And can it be that I should gain An interest in the Saviour’s blood? Died He for me, who caused His pain? For me, who Him to death pursued? Amazing love! how can it be That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me. The unfathomable love of God for me, a love that gives without demanding anything in return, is my daily experience. As I contemplate the love of God I realize that His love is real because it result¬ ed in action: God SENT His Son; the Son DIED on the cross and ROSE for our redemption and eternal life; the Son intercedes on our behalf at the Father ' s side. Amazing love! My only legitimate response to God ' s love is, again, love in action. First I am commanded to love God with all my soul, strength, and mind: then follows the command to love my neighbour as I love myself. This love becomes concrete in the time, the consideration, and the help I am willing to give. O Love that wilt not let me go I rest my weary soul in Thee. I give Thee back the life I owe That in Thine ocean depths its flow may richer, fuller, be. Doreen Reimer In the medieval ages man was greatly exercised by the question, " What must I do to be saved? " Heaven and hell were very real. Man was constantly reminded of the horrors of hell by grotesque drawings of the condemned. Martin Luther attempted to re¬ solve this problem by entering the monastery. Man is still asking the same question today though expressed in different words. Today the anguished cry is not, " What must I do to be saved? " , but rather, " What is the meaning of life?” Modern man fears, more than anything else, the idea of living a life which is purposeless, drifting along aimlessly on the tide of time. The question of the ultimate meaning of life was answered for me by Christ. It is He who has been able to satisfy all my longings and has given my life purpose and direction. My experience af¬ firms the statement once made by Augustine when he said, " man’s soul is restless until it finds its rest in God. " Christ has taught me that life becomes meaningful only when self dies and Christ has the pre-eminence. Such a life expresses itself in loving service of our fellowmen. It is aptly summed up for us in 2 Cor. 5:15, " And He died for all that those who live might no longer live for themselves but Jor Him who for their sake died and was raised. " is my desire that my life will be lived in such a manner that other people will also come to experi¬ ence the true meaning of life, in Christ. Edwin Plett I ' w ( 12 I was born and grew up on a farm in Southern Manitoba. I first made a profession of faith in Christ at the age of twenty. However, the joy and victory accompanying this experience eluded me for some time. It was only when I allowed myself to become more personally involved in the concerns of the Lord that the Christian walk became meaningful. The experience for which I am deeply grateful is the year I spent in a small Indian village in Northern Manitoba. Being separated from the home church and Christian friends helped me to look more fully to God. It was here that I experienced the Lord ' s presence and realized that joy and victory comes as a by-product of service. I decided that henceforth my life was in the hands of God and I would willingly serve to the best of my abilities. As a preparation toward this end it was my privilege to attend Bible School and College. This year was the first for some time that I was not a student. With its problems and trials has come a certain sense of accomplishment and joy. Although at this point I am unsure what the future holds, I trust that God will lead. Stan Plett " What is man that thou art mindful of him, and the son of man that thou visitist him? " Ever since the psalmist made this statement, and likely even be¬ fore, man has been seeking the answer to this search¬ ing question. Some are of the persuasion that only science has the true answer; others seek to find their answers in philosophy. Although both science and philosophy have much to say about man, it is left to Christianity to provide the answer. In the book of Genesis we are told that God created man in His own image. Paul takes up this same thought in his letter to the Ephesian Christians when he points out that God not only created us but also chose and redeemed us with a definite purpose. This purpose, he says, is that we should be " to the praise of his glory. ” What is man and why all this attention focused on him? He is a being created and redeemed by God for a purpose--to be to the praise of his (God ' s) glory. I am thankful that I have experienced a rebirth in my life; that God visited me by his Holy Spirit. It is only as I focus my life on Christ that there is meaning in existence. After all, were not we created solely for his pleasure and glory? Henry Hiebert Faith " Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe. " These words of Jesus were preserved by the early church in the story of Thomas who doubted that Jesus had been raised from the dead. Thomas on this particular occasion could resolve his problem by stretching forth his hand -- Jesus was there! In the twentieth century, from the human side, it is through faith that Jesus becomes our contemporary. The critics of Christianity contend that believing does not make something true. Furthermore, the critics are likely to say that faith or belief is really make - believe. Perchance they would agree with Emily Dickenson who wrote, possibly tongue in cheek; Faith is a fine invention For gentlemen who see But microscopes are prudent In an emergency. To this kind of critic the Christian replies that faith is by no means the projection of a wish. Faith must be founded upon reality, the solid reality of fact and history, or it is not faith at all. Unless it is grounded upon reality " faith " is creduality. The M Christian faith rests upon personal knowledge which is profoundly more than an intellectual grasp of the Bible or an understanding of various creedal state¬ ments that have been formulated from time to time. Saving faith is an act of trust and commitment based upon confident love, and this confidence and love is inspired and sustained by a personal knowledge or relationship with Jesus Christ.

My Testimony A wanderer was I, outside the fold, A stranger to the saving grace of God; There was no vital goal for which to strive. No victory crowned the daily path I trod. But He who came to seek and save the lost, In loving kindness lifted me from sin To walk with Him the straight and narrow way. And gave me peace and happiness within. My life I gave to Him to take and use As zealously I sought to do His plans. But first it must be fitted for His use And shaped and moulded by His mighty hand. And patience, meekness - just to wait and trust And yield--were lessons sometimes learned in tears. But oh, the joy of having His strength mine! To know His perfect love which cast our fears. To lead a worthwhile, satisfying life. The search for fame or fortune cast aside-- Meant life within the centre of His will, In faith and service with Him to abide. To be a blessing to those round about, A light along the way--this is my prayer. Not mighty works, but rather faithfulness In all He has entrusted to my care. The future lies before me unrevealed, But wisely guided by His gentle hand My aim is this--to make life count for Him, And follow step by step at His command.

' 15:5 (Pur j iutbnt President ' s History has once more been made with the completion of our studies at the Institute, bringing us to a new era in our lives. As Joshua, likewise we are about to embark upon a new venture, not knowing what it holds. But as Joshua walked with God and was victorious, we also, if we walk with God shall be victorious. Rich and bountiful have been the experiences of the past few years. We have not only gained academically, but also spiritually. We have been drawn into a more intimate relationship with Christ; many new and deep truths have been revealed to us; and a burning desire for service has been created within us. These and countless other experiences will remain priceless treasures never to be forgotten. Our hearts are filled with gratitude toward those who have made these years possible. Our sincere thanks extend to the board of directors, faculty, staff, parents and many friends of the Institute who have made these years meaningful and beneficial. May the Lord richly reward each one that has had a part in our preparation for service. Fellow graduates, in view of the immense need for more labourers in the harvest of souls, may we, as the Lord leads, go forth boldly, yielding our all to the advancement of Christ’s Kingdom. " Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest. " (Joshua 1:9).

Privileges and responsibilities go hand in hand. Beyond the joy of fellowship to¬ gether around God ' s Word, and the joy and honour of receiving the S. B. I. diploma, we anticipate added responsibility. We face the decision or indecision, as the case may be, of where and how we will put theory into practice. The Lord has promised, " I will guide thee with mine eye. " This seems to speak of having eye contact with the Lord. Even though the Lord does not spell out His will in specific terms, we may know His will if we keep our eyes on Him and walk in close fellowship with Him. After graduation, what? What does the future hold for me personally? If the Lord continues so to lead, I expect to be engaged in teaching again. As I imagine facing a group of youngsters, I see that trustful look, that mischievous twinkle, that puzzled expression, the timid and the happy-go-lucky. Each one is an individual with individual problems in a perplexing world. I see them as such whom Jesus calls to Himself; they need to be loved. I see them as such as will be facing a world of sin and temptation; they need to be prepared. I see them as such as will one day give an account of their lives; they need to be instructed. May the Lord give wisdom. Helen Kornelsen Third Year Bible MY FIRST TRY AT PREACHING Preaching is a work with tremendous responsi¬ bility. Therefore it is not an easy task. Much work is involved in preparation, but permit me to say the blessings received far exceed the work involved. This is what I experienced when I was given my first opportunity to bring a message in a New Year ' s morning worship service. My first impulse, upon request, was that of Moses in Ex. 4:10. I had ter¬ rible stage fright and became tongue tied when before an audience. How then was I to stand before a con¬ gregation to preach? Furthermore I had the feeling of Jeremiah in Jer. 1:6. I was too young, I first needed higher education before I could in any way qualify for the task. Upon reading on in these passages, I likewise had no more excuse to shun this opportunity to serve the Lord. In Ex. 4:12 the Lord says, " Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth and teach thee w | thou shalt say. " In Jer. 1:8a the Lord commands, " Be not afraid of their faces. " There I was, emptij of excuses. The Lord said that He would give me 1 utterance and I was commanded not to be afraid oil their faces. In the light of these promises I entere. ] into this service and then realized more fully whatl it meant to go in the strength of the Lord. Somehow on this occasion I felt like a differeitj person. Great was the blessing of that morning ' s H service. I experienced the Lord more fully, it wav an experience which I believe is a prominent a stepping stone to my future. tl Leland Heppner si Third Year Bible h OH, NURSE! P Oh, nurse!

" !c Now nurse, May I remain in bed? h Just look at all the aches I ' ve had. n 52 " You see, most ills are only in your head, So just go back to work instead. " Lena Brandt Second Year Bible SERVICE IN SONG The effect and results of Christian service through the medium of song cannot be over-estimated. How often have you not heard someone testify of con¬ viction, leading to a decision for Christ after hearing a certain hymn? The song brought conviction. Patients and invalids in hospitals and homes for the aged look forward to having groups of students sing to them. They will request songs that express hope for the future. The song brings comfort. •House visitations often end with a request: " Could you sing a hymn before you leave? " Songs-hymns, play an important part in every person ' s life. Who can help but respond to a mean¬ ingful hymn? Many of us will testify that a song at the right moment with a timely message has helped us decide for Christ, consecration and dedication. A hymn which has a message is meaningful to the Christian life. As one sings to himself, or hears the message of the song, and thinks on its meaning, one ' s character is strengthened. " Multitudes of persons, throughout the centuries lave been led to Christ through the Spirit inspired music. . . weak Christians have been strengthened, discouraged Christians have been revitalized, falter¬ ing Christians have been quickened, the hearts of lardened unbelievers have been softened. " Let us pray that our service in this area is ipontaneous and willing. May we be dedicated to ,erve Christ and witness to others through the media )f song. Let our prayer be: " To Thy Honour and Slory! " Carol Friesen Second Year Bible DEEPER LIFE SERVICES From October 13 through the 15th Deeper ,ife Services were held in the S. B. I. auditorium, lev. O. Hendrix, representing the Far Eastern ?rusade, and Rev. Cliff Ratzlaff, missionary to Southern Rhodesia, were the guest speakers for the hapel services and special afternoon sessions. This r as a time of real he art-searching in preparation for the months of study that were to follow. Special emphasis was placed on the importance of a mature Christian ' s experience and development. Fine practical warnings were given to aid the in¬ dividual in his stability as a Christian. These were the sin of neglect, unbelief, apostacy, willfil sin¬ ning, obstinate refusal, hard-heartedness and coldness. The obligations of a Christian were also fervently brought forth. Although conversion is voluntary, the service to Christ is an appointment, as we read in Matthew 28:19, " Go ye therefore, and teach all nations. . . " In Luke 19:13 we again have Christfs command when He says, " Occupy till I come. " This service to our Master calls for true self-denial and self-determination. What place do you give Him in your life? What is your answer to God ' s commission? Eternity alone will reveal how hearts responded to the moving of the Spirit and how many dedications were made as a result of these heart-searching messages. Agnes Friesen Third Year Bible A CHRISTIAN HOME Mr. C. W. Loewen, together with thirteen in¬ terested parents, devoted their Mondays from October to December on this all important topic. The many hours of valuable discussions have certainly enlight¬ ened us about the potential of the homes we are responsible for. The following points are probably the most vital in our homes today. The home is the first human institution to be established and was given to man by God at the time of creation. A good Christian home does not just happen. This is dependent on the effort put forth to build a good relationship between parents and children. Guidance for building such a home is found in the teachings and life of Jesus Christ. The components of a Christian home are four: Christ as head, the father, the mother, and the children. Each is necessary to the other. Christ must be honoured and given pre-eminence in the home so that His blessing may rest in the home. The father is the head of the family and he should have the final authority in the management of the household. The fath er should seek guidance and wisdom from the Lord in order to train his children in obedience, usefulness, and responsibility. 53 Come back! 54 55 The mother must serve sacrificially so that the needs of the household can be met. The mother ' s job is a twenty-four hour-a-day job. She lives with the children all day, knows their joys and problems. The parents must discuss household and family problems. Through these discussions and through prayer many difficulties will be solved. The children naturally look up to their parents and try to follow their example, so it is most im¬ portant to set a good example by word as well as by deed. Every Christian family should have a family altar. There the Bible should be read, discussed taught, and applied. There, confessions are made and the children learn to approach Holy God. There the integrity of the family is established, wrongs are made right, and God is honoured. A well-ordered Christian home is one of the greatest testimonies that Christians can give to the people in their own respective neighbourhood. Mrs. Neil Wiebe Evening Class STUDENT HOUSEWIFE A-L-A-R-M! Oh dear, time to get up again. I am about to resort to another few minutes of sleep when I remember this is Monday and my first class begins at 8:10. What an idea to begin a class so early on Monday morning! Well, that is the schedule and one must adhere to it. The teacher plainly said, " No. dribbling in late. " So at 8:00 I leave the house while Johnny is just getting up. Poor fellow, he ' ll have to have breakfast by himself. Upon arriving at school I remembered that I had forgotten to take meat out of the freezer for supper, and I will not get home again till 5 o ' clock. I guess we will have spaghetti and cheese again. At 5 o ' clock when we come home from school, I quickly tidy up the house and prepare supper. Seeing it is Monday I better get the washing started. By 8:30 the washing is done. Well, that completes my housework for today, but what about my home¬ work? We sit down for an hour or two to do our assignments, trying hard to keep awake. By 11 o ' clock we are ready to sign off, tired but happy to have another day behind us. Not every day is like this one. With the proper amount of co-operation and co-ordination I manage to get both my housework and my school work done. It is a joy to be in Bible School even as a student- housewife. These last two years have been precious years in my life and it is my prayer that I will be j more effective for the Lord, as a result of this training. Mrs. Frieda Bergen Third Year Bible POETIC REFLECTIONS We, as Christians often feel that the literatim, on our current high school curriculum was written j secular people and hence has little value for us. i That some of the material is shallow in comparisoi to the inspired writings, no one will deny. Never theless, many of the reputable names of literature] history have supplied us with some very thought- ( provoking and beneficial reading. 1 An example of good thought provocation is tin sonnet CXLVI by the great William Shakespeare. The query, " Why paper the temporal body at the l expense of the famished eternal soul?” is a pertine] one for Christians as well as others. We all haveil inherent desire to accumulate the material things i around us. We spend prolifically to attain the ben only to discover that we have been disillusioned; i we have not been satisfied; the physical being mat have been temporarily appeased but the immortal! being is deprived of its share. A solution to this i problem is a reversal of past procedure. The s customary extravagance on the body should be in-s verted to provide for the soul, the essence of life,! By so doing the riches of heaven will be gained, tt dress of life removed, and victory over death will! assured. The implication throughout the sonnet is that life follows the present one. Literature of this type and content does have value. It is up to us to search its meaning and appropriate its truths. B. Harry Dyck Grade XII 56 : 1 ME, A SEGREGATIONALIST? B Throughout the summer, as the news reporter told of Negro riots in the streets of New York, we openly condemned the white people whose attitude has led the Negroes to this extreme. As Christians, we say we believe in racial equality, and thus could never condone segregation. But are we in¬ nocent? There are few Negroes around us and thus we have little opportunity to be discriminated against them, but how do we treat the Indians we i meet every summer? It seems that there is constant trouble caused by drunken Indians. Besides, why is the entire race condemned when individuals are re- :i sponsible for the trouble caused by drunken Indians? Besides, why is the entire race condemned when in¬ dividuals are responsible for the trouble caused? We do not consider ourselves guilty of every crime a tl.white man commits, just because we also are white. Certainly other races ought to have equal rights. : We say God has created all men equal. Yet when i: Indians visit our homes in summertime, equality is i forgotten. Yes, we are considerate enough to give ' the Indian guests a sandwich, but they have to sit on eour doorstep to eat it. Perhaps we even invite them into the house for lunch, but we keep a constant eye ijon them to make certain they will not run off with ilany of our valuables. Suspicion like this does not imply equality; it implies that many of us who are so critical about the segregation in the South, are as i guilty of racial discrimination as the " separatists " of Alabama and New York. If we choose to accept, theoretically, the fact that all men are equal, we llshall have to learn to accept it in practice as well, is H Louise Hildebrand : S Grade XI COMMUNISM AND RELIGION What is the communist ' s stand on religion? The :ommunist is opposed to any, and every religion, le is totally atheistic. This is best illustrated by he words of a world communist Leibenecht, in his ook, THE OTHER SIDE OF SOCIALISM. He said, It is our duty, as socialists, to root out faith in Sod with all our zeal; nor is anyone worthy of the lame who does not consecrate himself to the spread f atheism. " The devotion and consecration of the :ommunists to their belief is shown by the efforts hey are making to corrupt the churches on our :ontinent. The communists are doing their utmost to infiltrate churches and organizations in this country with atheistic doctrine. They are attempting to achieve this by appointing communists to join the churches and organizations. These " tools " of the communist state influence the thought and action of their fellow members favorably toward communism and atheism. This method of getting the church to decay internally is far more effective in destroying the church than persecution would be. We, as Christians, should therefore, work against this com¬ munistic onslaught, keep our faith, and seek to win others to the Truth before they are deceived by communism.

What a challenge to teach others to love Christ --to teach them of Christ’s love to us. Thissummer we had had the privilege of reaching quite a number of boys and girls and some adults with the gospel through D. V. B. S. Although we can report only a few decisions made for Christ yet we hope that in many hearts the seed sown will take root. We taught in seven villages with about 240 pupils attending. Doors in other villages were wide open as well, but a shortage of workers prevented us from entering these doors. How many heartaches when arriving in some village the children come up eagerly to ask, " Did you come to teach classes? " and we have to answer, " We ' re sorry, we would like to, but we just don ' t have time. " Pray with us to the Lord of the Harvest that He might call out more reapers, and that He might work through us to win many for His kingdom. Yours for Mexico, Doris Thiessen National Pastors AFRICA We have enjoyed the privilege of spending t years with Le Tourneau of Liberia Ltd. It is a Christian effort to teach native boys carpentry, masonry, farming, mechanics, sawmill operatio and road building. Waldo has been employed J the farming and carpentry groups. National Evangelists n 3 After the eight-hour day we have had mantf portunities to help along with the mission aspec- 1 the project. Thirty pastors and three evangelism are supported by our mission. We have visited number of the interior villages where these pasi are stationed, and were blest by their simple fY ' in the Lord Jesus. Last summer we held a first pastors ' Bible School in Tounata for two weeks, 3 W aldo had the privilege of teaching a number i 1 classes. It proved to be a great help and en- u couragement for the pastors since many of their 2 difficulty studying the scriptures because of the 11 limited knowledge of the English language. Another new venture is the girls ' school f e daughters of the pastors. At present there are ea seventeen attending. Most of them have lean to speak English well and are doing above aver 16 in secular and Bible studies. In addition we la e teach them to sew, cook, clean house and prai 30 proper health habits. We are assured that upon 0 return to their villages they will be strong inflt 13 upon their fellowmen. Pray for us, won ' t you? Waldo, Elinor, Timmy Neufelt l 66 Girls’ School GERMANY I just paged through the 1962 Yearbook--the year I had the privilege of being one of the graduat¬ ing class. That was the year I faced the decision so many of you will be facing this year. " What after graduation? " It had been my dream for years to go to the land of Germany, but strangely enough, when the time came I found it difficult to decide. Our conference speaker gave me a guide found in Polossians 3:15, " And let the peace of God rule in our heart. . . " I do believe with all my heart that [if we allow the peace of God to rule in our hearts ye will be led aright. This first year in Germany has been a wonderful, atisfying year. Wonderful, because I was able to witness the working of the Lord during the Crusades, Sunday School Conventions and Summer Bible r " amps. Satisfying, because I had the assurance e hat I was in God’s appointed place. Does God work miracles today? " Of course " , ye answer, perhaps only half-believing that He eally does work miracles in our day and age. . itnessing the working of the Spirit in the hearts of r ie people attending the Crusades, one could not a elp but believe in a miracle-working God. Then 3 po, to witness later that a goodly number are really : oing on with the Lord, causes us to rejoice and to yank Him humbly that He has given us a small share 1 his work. It is really wonderful to be in the ;rvicetof THE King. It Margaret Neufeld liosi-drattg rtte Elkhom, Manitoba Greeting with 2 Cor. 3:2a. We would like to share with you some of our everyday experiences as we serve the Lord on our farm. A Personal Witness: A neighbour came to in¬ quire why Dave did not again join the farmers ' union where he had previously been a member. Dave answered and said, " As a Christian. . . " These words struck home. A heated discussion followed where Dave quoted one scripture verse after another. Finally the man excused himself and went on his way but not before he gave us an invitation to visit them. A Silent Witness: One neighbours ' son called per telephone to offer us some Christian literature after having refused to subscribe to filthy magazines earlier. A Public Witness: During the summer months we participate in singing at street meetings. This is a challenging yet humbling effort to win the lost even if it means facing those whom you know all your life. Witness in the Home; Our greatest task lies in the training of our two boys. Blaine, two in August, already enjoys singing choruses. We know his young mind is open for instruction. Boyd is six months now and responds favorable to the love we offer him. It is our sincere desire and prayer that our boys will respond to the message of God’s redeeming grace. 67 Although farming and housework keep us busy from day to day we still endeavor to serve our Master as opportunities are revealed to us. Dave and Esther Kliever Kamsack, Sask. Greetings with Luke 24;47 -48. Through my work at a local garage as mechanic, I have learned to know quite a few people. Through this contact confidence has been gained and several have started to send their children to our Sunday School. Since a kind of friendship has been estab¬ lished with many of these men, and they have noticed that my walk and talk is different from theirs it is now my obligation to deal with them along spiritual matters. Please pray for me that I might open my mouth boldly when opportunities arise. A special burden on my heart is for some local farm families. We have visited and dealt with them about their spiritual welfare. They were quite open and even invited us to come back, yet it seems we have so little time to enter this open door. Please make also this a matter of special prayer. In closing I beseech you young people to go out to some needy field to proclaim Christ, and you will find excitement, challenges, hardships as well as blessings in abundance. Yours in Him, Bernie Hilda Brandt Brooklyn, N. Y. " Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into His harvest. " Matt. 9:38 Since we arrived here at the Bible Christian Union in Brooklyn the question has frequently come to us, " Where are all our S. B. I. missionaries? " When we left Bible School we expected to see large numbers of our students going into full-time mission work, but where are they all? The Bible Christian Union is well known and highly thought of in our Bible School, but do you realize how many of our students have gone through this candidate school before us? The number is TWO. Are we better represented in other mission schools? If so, we have not heard of it. What u next spring bring? Will there be any of YOU her! We are praying that you may be obedient to His perfect Will. s Yours in His Service, Frank Kathy Ebnei ah Since I left the doors of the S. B.

" A very ex Q i seven year old piped up, " I know, God drives th, n This opened a door to tell them of God’s wondei . beauty. The children love the Bible stories. I. nc can become more excited over a well read " SarTB than " Popeye, the Sailor Man. " ieE My class of 1963 -64 I did not like teaching at first but I still realized it was God ' s will for the present. Perhaps if one were aimless, godless and without feelings of res¬ ponsibilities, teaching could be a first rate, easy, good-paying job. To me it is much more. It is an opportunity to show Christ, His love and salvation while I teach the rudiments of education - " reading, ’riting and ’rithmetic " . Eva Giesbrecht part of last winter in the Sault Ste. Marie area, and this winter in Eastern Manitoba. The Lord has a word of encouragement to us all as we seek His will, " But the path of the just is as the shining light that shines more and more unto that perfect day " . Prov. 4:18 Yours because of Him, Pete Wiens Dear Graduates, Students, and Friends of the S. B. I., It is always a real blessing to me reading the reports in the STAR of former S. B. I. students as they seek to live for our Blessed Lord in our land and abroad. It is my prayer that this short report will en¬ tourage you to pray for the work of his " Shanty- men ' s Christian Association of North America " as n they seek to preach Christ to workmen in lumber and pulpwood camps, oil fields, mining and construction tampsj to settlers in remote districts, on Indian Reserves, to sailors on the high seas using the ports of J North America. r Itjjis estimated that ten percent of the rural popu¬ lation jpf Canada consists of lumbermen, miners, :tlers, farmers and native Indians removed from centre of Christian worship. The Shantymen missionaries know what it means : o travel far beyond highways and good roads as they endeavor to reach those that dwell " beyond the rail " .I This creates within them a specific depend¬ ence on their God. 1 This will be my third season with the Shanty- nen ' s Association. One winter in western Ontario, Wolf Point, Montana Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. 1 Cor. 4:2 When I left the S. B. I. in 1960, I was con¬ cerned with the thought, " What will the Lord have me do? " I had reached the age where foreign mission boards generally stop taking applicants. The Lord has however, given us a large mission field right here in North America. This city has a population of about four thousand with only four small evangelical churches. If God does not call you to the foreign field does not mean that He has no work for you. Pastors and Christian workers are desperately needed in many places in America. The activities of the group here are many. Besides Sunday School and Young Peoples we have a service at the County Jail every Monday night. Some of the young people assist in the singing. Our summer Bible Camp has proved to be a real blessing. In Christ, Frank and Mary Funk 69 (iiust speakers REV. AND MRS. ARTHUR CONRAD Central American Mission Guatamala DR.
