REV. AND MRS. JOHN R. RICHEY Prerideuf Elllgfiflhf and C0-Fofmder HISTORY OF O.B.I. Witlm a burden for souls and a vision for trained pastors and teachers, john R. and Louise H. Richey began classes in the First Church of the Open Bible at Nineteenth and Crocker, in Des Moines. Through the years the enrollment grew, until a new building was needed. No structure which was suitable to meet the need of the school could be found. Finally, at the Annual Convention of 1938, the founders again took the leadg they presented the idea of building our own building, and gave the initial donation. The spirit of God moved, and in that one meeting ample funds were raised to begin the work. Through depression and prosperity, prayer and sacrifice, working and giving, O.B.I., students and faculty members have carried on the building program, until today the hrst floor unit of our building stands equipped and paid for--a 317,000 dollar memorial of the grace of God. The Open Bible Institute not only has made progress finan- cially, but the Lord has blessed our school spiritually as well. A God-given faculty, and students with consecrated talent and a genuine burden for souls, comprise the real O.B.I. In a brief history like this, one cannot tell the qualities and characteristics of the students, their trials and victories, their joys and triumphs, which go to make up the ever growing spirit of the Institution. We anxiously await the time when the Lord, Himself shall unfold tot us the completed story of the actual growth of the Open Bible Institute and its far-flung outposts. Until that time we shall faithfully occupy till He comes. We shall take the burning of the mortgage and the estab- lishment of the new Victory Building Fund as tokens of even greater spiritual conquests as we march ONWARD to glorious VICTORY in CHRIST JESUS.

REV. FRANK UV. SMITH, Preridefzt Outstanding in both name and reputation, Rev. Frank W. Smith has established a fine record as President of the Open Bible Institute. His passionate love for souls, and power in dealing with men bespeaks a hidden life of prayer and communion with God. Vitally interested in the deeper meaning of God's Word, he packs every class session with diligent, method- ical delving into the Scriptures, and has been used of God to enlighten our spiritual understanding. Holding high the standards of Christian living, Brother Smith consistently encourages the students of O.B.I. to walk steadfastly before God, and spurs us on to give our Rev. FRANK W. SM1T1-1 Prefidefzl REV. LUCILLE IENKINS, Dean of Women Her friendly smile warming the hearts of all those she contacts, Sister Jenkins serves O.B.I. faithfully and effi- ciently. Although her duties are many and varied, we have never found her to preoccupied to share diiiicult student problems. Many a boy and girl in Dark Africa has found Ma jenkins a source of unfailing inspiration, but her light of love shines no less here in the Homeland, where her efforts for the Master have been equally fruitful. We are indeed privileged to have Miss Jenkins as a member of the O.B.I. Faculty, and we pray that she may continue with us-until God reopens the door to Africa. best efforts in the Lord's service.
