UCTI N "He caught a vision long ago, of things that should be done. He could have said, 'I haven't time, You know, Lord, I'm just one. The task is far too great for me,' I cannot stand the test. Do give the work to someone else, But please, just let me rest'. No, like Isaiah when God spoke, e answered, 'Here am 1'. No doubt he felt inadequate, Bu t said, 'Dear Lordz I'll try'. "

"Extra! Extra!" rang the shrill youthful voice. Big brown eyes snapped apprehensively as the young salesman scanned the streets of Broad and High in Columbus, Ohio for prospective buyers.

High School. jessie Dunn also attended Ohio State, majoring in Chemistry. Her father, William J. Dunn, became very ill. He sought medical help but to no avail. A man who worked for him at his place of business invited him to attend a Pentecostal service. Mr. Dunn was healed and consequently converted. He invited Stuart and jessie to c h u rch where they were introduced to Pentecost. There was a great difference in worshipfrom their traditional roots, but each felt .~omething special in that Pentecostal church.

In 1901, the sleepy town of Royalton, Ohio, boasted of about 200 people. Delighted young storekeepers, Frank and Susan Norris increased its population by one on July 16 with the arrival of their first and only child, Stuart Greene. Early in his life, destiny marked this boy for great purpose. At the age of five, Stuart's father was killed in a freak elcctrical accident wh'ile he was on his job. Strong Presbyterian ro 0 t s comforted Susan Norris, but she knew she had to put food on her table. There was no alternative. At age eight, her son bccame a salesman. On the streets of Columbus, Ohio, this small town boy from the heartland of America had his first encounter with leadership while selling newspapers. In High School, Stuart fell in love with a vivacious Methodist girl, Jessie Alberta Dunn. Their romance continued into college. Upon completion of High School, Stuart Norris enrolled at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, taking a major in Business Administration. To support himself, he worked nights at Western Union, a job he had started while in 4

One day at the bus stop where Stuart Norris and jessie Dunn met and rode to college together, Stuart received shocking news. "I got the Holy

Ghost last night," she stated simply. Decision time had arrived. Should he reject her religion and lose this girl he loved, or should he just go along with it? He decided upon the latter. As he watched her put her engagement ring into the offering plate for missionaries, he was astonished. But something gripped him in those Pentecostal services. After many months of struggle, he was baptized with the Holy Spirit during the dismissal prayer of a Sunday morning service. i

Stuart Norris and Jessie Dunn were married on July 27,1923. Drawing on the sales experience of his childhood, he join· ed the National Cash Register Company of Columbus, Ohio .

Very soon he was appointed branch manager which meant he was responsible to train men to sell their product. He served God enthusiastically and assisted his great Bible teacherpastor, Rev. W. T. Witherspoon. It was in the Co Iu m bus, Ohio church that S. G. Norris had the experience of preaching his first sermons. Here he learned a great love for the Word of God. Mr. Stuart G. Norris, Branch Manager of National Cash Register Company, Columbus, Ohio.

The Norrises had five beautiful, healthy children: James, Mary, David, Eleanor and Ruth. Life was so wonderful: they lived in a nice home and attended a solid church. But, one day, a letter arrived explaining that the company he worked for had sold out. Enclosed was a month's salary. What now? The Great Depression had just set in. He found a job as a salesman with a refrigerator company. That job required that he and his family move to New York City. They rented out their Ohio house. Upon arriving in New York City, the priority After futile was to find a church home. attempts, Rev. Norris did the only thing to be He established Satisfaction Tabernacle done. in downtown New York City. Over this pulpit, he exercised the training he had received fr'om his pastor. On his knees he gained a deep spiritual walk which would carry him throughout life. He and his wife received news that the renters in their Ohio home had moved out. When faced with the choice between giving up the church in New York City which required his salary, or saving their home, the Norrises chose God's work over possessions. Again, destiny had touched their lives. Even though they lost their home, they gained true insight to the meaning of "sacrifice". This would be a great aid to their future ministry. Thirtytwo were baptized and eighteen received the Holy Ghost in Satisfaction Tabernacle. "You will not be here long". This was the only time in his life that Rev. Norris heard the voice of God. Letters began to arrive. Rev. A. D. Urshan implored the Norris family to leave New York City and to go to a struggling congregation in the cold Northland - St. Paul, Minnesota. Finally, commissioned by Superintendent W. T. 5


Witherspoon, the Norris family left for St. Paul in 1934 after two years of pastoral service in New York City. The church in St. Paul indeed Fourteen consecutive pastors had problems. had come and gone. In her book, "COM FORT", Mrs. S. G. Norris describes the situation like this - "Some ministers, seeing the attitude of the church group, but deciding not to discuss it with them or fight it through, resigned politely; some left before the blow fell. Others, daring to stay, blamed and crushed, finally were forced to crawl away to lick their wounds and try to recover faith enough to start again in another church". Into this atmosphere came Rev. and Mrs. S. G. Norris and their family. It is of little wonder that they did not change their car license plate to Minnesota for six months. But Rev. Norris did not know the meaning of the word "quit". Knowing the way to lead, with great love and concern, Rev. and Mrs. Norris rescued the floundering church bringing great victory to Midway Tabernacle. Just 36 years following the original outbreak of Pentecost at Stone's Folly, Topeka, Kansas, and 24 years after the great Oneness revelation in Arroyo Seco, California campmeeting, another stepping stone was laid in Apostolic history. Driving home one night from a conference in Spencer, Iowa, Rev. Norris received a call from God to train workers to carry the Gospel. In 1937, such an idea was considered absurd and even opposed. Yet this man held exceptional spiritual insight. Surely being branch manager of the cash register company had been "for such a time as this". He answered unhesitatingly YES! Motivated by this deep need to train Christian workers, Rev. Norris recruited a dedicated team - W. L. Hodge, a former High School teacher from Wisconsin, and Mrs. C. E. Lundquist, a teacher from Iowa. Later, Mrs. S. G. Norris added her expertise to this band of teachers. With small salaries, but with great reslove to follow a God-ordained call, ABI began. Times were dark. The United States suffered symptoms of the Great Depression. People were lean and wallets were thin. Yet a torch was lit. On October 1, 1937, Apostolic Bible Institute opened its doors to men and women across the world to "work the works of Him who sent me while it is day: the night cometh when no man can work" (John 9:4 - motto of the Apostolic Bible Institute). The school was born through highly disciplined, intelligent, hard working leaders driven by a dream. The foundation of this Bible School was built around the Word of God. Structured classes came into existence with four subjects: Public Speaking, English, Foreign Missions, and the Word of 6

God. Great lead ersh ip exci tes great con troversy, but this solid foundation withstood every problem and test. These pioneers of the Apostolic Bible Institute from the very beginning, projected an inner strength which has been woven throughout a rich 50 year history. Thursday night meals were and still are dedicated to fasting. A set daily faculty and student prayer schedule was and still is established. Not only spiritual awareness, but academic excellence was emphasized. W. L. Hodge wondered if a student could make it to heaven and not do his English homework. Mrs. S. G. Norris, an astute student of the books, knowledgeably insisted that only well路 prepared teachers could produce well-prepared workers. Rev. S. G. Norris spent many all night sessions in quest of answers to difficult Bible problems. Experience led to growth. God blessed those formative years at 464 Pierce Street. Rev. Norris pastored Midway Tabernacler and also officiated as the ABI president. Students shared living and dining quarters with the Norris family and worshipped in the very same build ing where they studied and lived. Recognizing a need for larger facilities, never believing in doubts only certainties, Rev. Norris led a parade of prayerful believers around an occupied school building one night at 745 Grand Avenue. To his knowledge, this building was not for sale, but he had a tenacious sense of purpose. God responded to this confidence. Even though the owner of the school was surprised at Rev. Norris' offer to buy, he acquiesced. Soon ABI was moved from Pierce Street to the larger facilities at 745 Grand Avenue. Students from across the world have filed through ABI halls to sit under the dynamic teaching of S. G. Norris and the ABI facu Ity. Time after time, Rev. Norris drew firm biblical boundaries and year after year he witnessed the fulfillment of his vision as ABI workers spilled across the globe. Early in his Bible School administration, it was obvious that Rev. Norris possessed a special knack with people. He emphasized the uniqueness of each individual and discovered potential in almost every student. He attracted and kept the loyalty of subordinates. Maybe this is one of the secrets of the strong bond of the AB I alumni family. His generosity and true concern is remembered by all who meet him. Little children line up at his door for the ever present handful of candy.


In the early 1960s, ABI was bursting to capacity. After much prayer and consideration, a forty acre property was purchased at the location which is today 6944 Hudson Boulevard North, just ten miles east of downtown St. Paul. In the summer of 1966, ABI moved into the new chapel and school building. Four beautiful brick dormitories, a utility garage and in 1977, a large church auditorium, were added to this spacious property. And, AB I retained the coveted presence of God. In May 1983, special recognition was awarded to AS/'s pursuit of academic excellence. "I am impressed as I have been for the past four to five years. I work with the Department of Education in the State of Minnesota and have monitored this school closely as I do all other 75 schools that I have. This school has been in existence since 1937. It came under our jurisdiction for Veteran's Administration approval in 1947. I call assure you that since that time no violation of law or intent of law has been filed. I approached Reverend Norris and Reverend Grant this past fall with the idea of the ever changing social climate, that if this school offered a Bachelor's Degree that the credibility that you carry back into your community as you do the work of the Church, would be much more readily accepted. After extensive research, the degree granting authority was approved January 1, 1983. The degrees given tonight have all been through my office ... " These words, spoken by Mr. Richard Shu macher, Minnesota Department of Education, introduced the Bachelor of Theology Degree in Apostolic Studies which ASI now awards to deserving

students. Later on that same year, at the United Pentecostal Church General Conference in Louisville, Kentucky, the committed pioneers, Rev. and Mrs. Norris, stood in recognition of their efforts. Fifty prominent representatives of all classes of ASI since 1937 marched across the stage. They sang, "A BI is the School We Love". The General Superintendent, Rev. N. A. Urshan, pronounced Rev. and Mrs. Norris, "Mr. and Mrs. Pentecost". The shrill voice of a newspaper boy developed into the solid, patient voice of a widely acclaimed Bible teacher. Rev. Norris has agitated young men and women for years to stand for the Truth and he refused to tolerate spiritual weaklings or liberals. The singlemindedness of purpose and total commitment for life, to hold high the standard of the Apostolic movement changed their world and the personality of an entire generation of Pentecostals. We will remember these great leaders, not only for what they have done, but for what they are; not only for their contributions, but for their character. Their adept teaching of the Word of God and church administration is only outshone by their unwavering examples. Over 4000 alumni of ASI preach the Word around our globe. The impact of these two great Christians who have embraced the Faith with their entire lives remains unmeasureable. Upon the pages of Apostolic history is imprinted fifty years of wholehearted service of a newspaper boy and his high school sweetheart.

ABI opens its doors. Apostolic Bible school training now available. The first year brought fourteen students to 464 Pierce Street, S1. Paul, Minnesota on October 4. "Although I do not feel worthy to head such a school, I know that God has spoken and I dare not refuse, nor turn my back on the vision. I humbly solicit your prayers." (5. G. Norris) A burden for a Bible school to train ministers and workers challenged Rev. Norris for years. God burned the conviction on his heart so forcibly, he could delay no longer. ABI was born October 4, 1937.

"I must work the works of him who hath sent me while it is yet day, for the night cometh when no man can work." John 9:4 (ABI scriptural motto)

Students arrived from Wisconsin, Iowa, West Virginia, Oklahoma, North Dakota, Texas and many parts of Minnesota. One of the greatest needs in our faith has been a FULL TIME BIBLE SCHOOL where our Ministers, Missionaries and Sunday School workers could be trained. We know of no place in the United States that offers this complete training and at the same time upholds Pentecostal doctrines.

APOSTOLIC BI: Opens October 4, 193 APOSTOLIC TRAINING SCHOOL NOW AVAILABLE One of the greatest needs in our faith has been a FULL TIME BIBLE SCHOOL where our Ministers, Missionaries and Sunday School workers could be properly trained. After much prayer and preparation we wish to thank God for making it possible to announce the opening of such an institution on October 4, 1937. A complete Bible training course will be available for both men and women. We know of no place in the United States that offers this complete training and at the same time upholds our doctrine. No sacrifice should be too great on the part of pastors, evangelists, parents, individuals and assemblies in encouraging and sending worthy students tf) the APOSTOLIC BIBLE INSTITUTE. The full course will last seven and one-half months, opening October 4, 1937, and closing May 13, 1938.

The Complete Course Includes the Following Subjects: Old Testament-Bynthetic and Analyzed Study. New Testament-Bynthetic and Analyzed Study. Church History. English. Public Speaking. Ministers' Problems. FIRST TERM OPENS OCT. 4, 1937-CLOSES JAN. 28, 1938 SECOND TER.M OPENS FER. 1, 1938-CWSES MAY 13, 1938 S. G. Norris, one of the presbyters in the P.A. of J.C. organization and vice chairman of the Northwestern Ministers' Oneness Council, has had a burden of long standing for a better trained ministry. He attended Ohio State University two and one-half years and later gave up a successful sales manager's position to devote full time to the ministry. He was associated with W. T. Witherspoon, Columbus, Ohio, for ten years and also founded the Satisfaction Gospel Tabernacle, New York City. In February, 1~134, he a,~cepted the pastorate of Midway Tabernacle and now the congregation is holding up his hands in this great step forward-a Bible School. We believe that any student will be greatly benefited by their association with this progressive S. G. NORRIS, Presbyter man of God. Bible Teacher

We are not placing education above the power and presence of God in one's life, but we firmly believe that anyone attending our Bible School for both terms will be far more capable of presenting this GLORIOUS GOSPEL than if they struggle along for many years snatching fragments of knowledge here and there. The lack of fUlIdamental training has been the cause of much division and fanaticism in our ranks. Other church organizations are making rapid strides forward because of properly trained ministers and workers. IT'S TIME TO AWAKE! This is a great undertaking, but we accept the challenge by the help of God and humbly solicit your prayers that this school will be a mighty blessing. If you feel the need of better trained ministers and workers and wish to assist financially in this great work, your funds will be appreciated. We guarantee that they will go di路 rectly for the school expense. Please make all remittances payable to the APOSTOLIC BIBLE INSTITUTE. What could be a greater or more lasting gift than to send someone through the APOSTOLIC BIBLE INSTITUTE?

Did God ever appear on the earth as an angel during the Old Testament times after Adam's fall? Yes, several times. A few Instances are pictured. This angel of the Lord shou Id not be confused with the appearance of ordinary angels.

MEMORIES FROM OUR ALUMNI Greetings in the Lovely Name of Jesus l Congratulations to all who have helped to make ABI the school we love for 50 years l When I came to ASI in September of 1969, I had only been saved for two years. ABI taught me many wonderful truths about God. Several lessons that Bro. Norris taught have meant alot to me, especially, "The Deep-Rooted Palm Tree", "Satan's Best Weapon Against You" and "Assuredly Gathering". Bro. Gleason taught me from the Minor Prophets that I hardly even knew eXisted, some wonderful lessons. Bro. Sabin's Church History helped me get a foundation. Sis. Norris' Storytelling class helped me learn how to preach. Sis. Grant's teaching on Sunday School is still valuable to me. Bro. Kozar, in his Home Missions class, taught me one lesson that I have used over and over again - "Follow all leads until dead". Thank you ABI, for all of the richness you have brought to my life. Another great benefit of ABI is "its family". When I started evangelizing, and then later when I became a missionary wi th the Un ited Pen tecostal Church, I immed iately found open doors to my ministry that I would not have had had I not attended ABI. I immediately had friends because of AB!. To the students of this 50th class, let me repeat what "God has no pets!" Bro. Norris often said to us. God can use anyone. As you go into your ministry, don't be afraid to start with the smal:cst of all the jobs that might be given to you, and GOD will advance you ... because He has no pets! Just do what you find to do with all of your heart! In Christ our Lord, HENRY RITCHIE, Class of 1972 Missionary to Windward Islands

We thank George Schmidt, Minneapolis, MN, Ed Caldie, St. Paul, MN and Rev. and Mrs. (Esther Perry) Richard Eastman, Onalaska, WI, for submitting many pictures of their A BI days'

Christian greetings' My fondest memories of ABI are found in the classroom learning from Bro. Norris and Bro. Sabin. I graduated in 1975 and married Debbie Bennett, also a '75 graduate. We are helping out in the Brownsburg, Indiana church. I direct the handicapped ministry and my wife teaches the primaries in our church. We both are involved in quizzing. I work as an electrician at Dow Chemical and Debbie is a computer operator. Yours in Christ, Ed Blair, Class of 1975

Rev. Fred Scott, '41, OR, former missionary, writes "I hope that we will be able to make it to the 50th anniversary. I feel a special burden to help little churches that With my Social really cannot afford an evangelist. Security, we do not need so much. I will be going to Alaska for several services".

The wonderful training I received at ABI has stayed with me and I judge a lot of things by what Brother or Sister Norris said. I started ABI in 1945 and graduated in 1948. I am helping in the Sunday School in LaCrosse, WI. I remember the all night prayer meetings for someone to get the Holy Ghost, while at AB!. One girl got it right after that and the boy received the Holy Ghost some time later. Have a wonderful JUbilee Year I Viola Haigh, Class of 1948 *Note - Sister Haigh writes every Sunday School lesson for every class she teaches herself.

Tarino Walls-Hanson, Minneapolis, MN writes that she enjoyed reading her Bible through with the ABI Read Your Bible Through program and the consequent boatride. She remembers Brother Gleason's excitement about the Word of God and loved to listen to Sister Norris' stories. She is now the mother of a beautiful daughter, Danae Nicole.

Bread was flying over our heads. Brother Norris wanted to make sure everyone had a piece of it, just like the lesson he had been teaching. The way he'd teach and illustrate made one remember as if he had taught the lesson just yester'day. He wanted to make sure everyone understood the Word of God and he used a variety of methods to relate it. Yct, there were those classes that you'd come out with tired hands and wearied minds wondering how it would all fit. Even today, some of those pieces are falling into place like a giant puzzle. But ABI was more than classes. It was dorm life, our jobs, after school activities, drama, good times and some bad, our friends. ABI was life ... One can't give another the knowledge acqu ired here; notes cannot encompass the practical side of the ABI education. A person has to live ABI to appreciate and understand it. God blends the right classes with the individual's particular situation to direct him towards that area He has called him to "leave to serve". Margot Jones, Class of 1980 PRINCIPAL OF A CHRISTIAN SCHOOL,

Evangelist and Mrs. Ronald Prather write that they have been 路evangellzlng for 9 years now and have been in approximately 30 states. God has blessed their family with musical talent and both of their daughters have the Holy Ghost!

To ABI: What I remember the most about ABI would be - the ABI trios, dramas, prayer meetings, the Paul Gregory Memorial Library and most of all, Brother Norris' preaching! Sister Wasco made a difference for me at ASI. She invited several of us out for dinner on various occasions. am now a preacher and have a B.A. in Psychology; work with families having special problems. Give my love to Brother and Sister Norris. George Martinez, Class of 1975 Riverside, CA

Rev. Roger and Becky Buckland, Missionaries to the Philippines, write - "We are both graduates of the class of 7975. We extend congratulations to the school, Brother and Sister Norris, and all the faculty and students that have become a part of this great A BI family. May you all have a joyous celebration and if the Lord tarries, may you have another 50 years to give yourselves to the training of men and women for the work of the Lord.'''

Christian greetings l We have many memories of ABI life. We do cherish the fact that ABI was one of the first Oneness schools which gave Pentecostal young people of that day a chance for Bible knowledge. What we are doing now is very diversified, and we ar-e quite excited about it. We do a lot of travelling in the interest of World Missions. Our endeavors are to arouse Apostolic people and churches to the needs of a world thrust with the Gospel. This ministry takes us into many Oneness groups. In 1986, I along with others made a tour to India, Singapore, Philippines, Taiwan and Haiti. If all goes well, we will be present for the 50 year celebration of ABI! Christian Love, Rev. & Mrs. Kirby Tiller, Class of 1938

Esther Grant-O'Hem, '78, writes from Germany that the Lord is blessing their work. She is learning the German language and she and her husband are giving many Home Bible Studies. She encourages all ABI students to get everything they can because they will surely use it. Dear ABI Friends: Greetings in Jesus' Name!

I want to congratulate ABI on 50 years of service to God. I am really thankful for all of the Bible teaching I received at ABI. It has surely helped me to be anchored in the Lord and make it through some dry iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiijiiii;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;~11 pIace s.

I am a graduate from the Class of 1986. After leaving St. Paul, I came back to Danville, PA, to work with my pastor, Rev. Terry Litz, who is also an ABI graduate. I am the Youth Leader in the church, and I also am teaching in the eight and nine year old class in our Sunday School. (I say "thank you" Sister Swim for Religious Education). My pastor has me working on a Sunday School drive, and I drive our church bus. I am also working on getting my minister's license. On June 14, 1986, I married a beau tifu I young lady from the Class of 1985. Her name was Jami Kent. She is a big help to me and truly a woman of virtue. She helps me as youth leader, and she teaches the teens in our Sunday School.

My last doctrine class was a lesson taught by Brother Norris telling us that all that Christ suffered and went through cushions all of the trials and sufferings we have to go through. Because He made it, we can. The Lord has bwught that lesson to mind many times when I was down with Hodgkin's Disease. He has since healed me, Praise the Lord! I am working as an RN at Barnes Hospital in St. Louis, MO. God is my strength when I see young women die with cancers in the oncology floor wher-e I work. I am a recol'ding secretary fa I' the First Pentecostal Church in Dupo, IL. My husband is named David Sharp and his brother Larry Sharp married Sharon White who graduated in 1974. It amazes me how the Lord brought Sister Sharon and me together at ABI as best of friends to allow us to become sisters-in-law ten years later. God is truly a God of surprise and wonder!

We were recently given a large sum of money so that we could buy a house, which we did. We thank God for His many blessings. We have two dogs - a Springer Spaniel mix and a German Shepard mix and the Shepard just had seven puppies. God has been very good to us and we love Him very much!

Thank you again, ABI, for all that you allowed me leam in God's Word I

God Bless! Bill and Jami Woodruff, Class of 1986 & 1985

The Lord bless you! Sharon Crane Sharp, Class of 1975

ABI has the largest enrollment in its history to date. A gigantic move is made to 317 5 Hudson Road. ABI took a great step ahead as the campus moved to a beautiful forty-acre campus at 3175 Hudson Road. Rev. Fred Kinzie dedicated this new complex to the Lord. Twenty-nine Seniors under class officers Larry Branscombe, president; Bill Schellenger, vicepresident; Mary Ruth Bierschenk, secretary-treasurer, were the first to graduate in this new location. Conservatism was evident, as always, in ABI economics as the old furnace was moved from 745 Grand Avenue to Hudson Road. What a wonderful year, this year of ABI 's thirtieth birthday was! Rev. S. G.

MEMORIES FROM OUR ALUMNI Robby Flynt, A R, '83, writes - "My fondest memory of A BI is the love for the Word of God and desire to study it, instilled in me by Brother Norris and all the faculty and staff. .. " Rev. Flynt now pastors in Arkansas.

Rev. and Mrs. Stan Searcy, Class of 7985, send their congratulations to Rev. and Mrs. 5. G. Norris for 50 years of service to our Pentecostal movement. They are now pastoring in Auburn, I L.

Christian greetings in Jesus' Name! I have so many memories of ABI, but one that stands out in my mind is our first year skits. "Paul" Yosohito Iwaki, our Japanese classmate, correctly recited the ingredients on a Big Mac l I'll never forget my first job ever as a shotgun toting security guard which ended up with me patrolling a junk yard l Currently, I am serving as an associate pastor, youth leader, quiz coach and athletic director at Calvary Pentecostal Church. I am also entering my fifth year as the Ohio state Conquerors' President. Your Friend, Norman Paslay II, Class of 1978 Cincinnati, OH

Missionaries james and Martha Burton, '59, Venezuela, write - "We are doing fine, and the work of the Lord is growing. We have about two hundred and seventy churches plus another 350 preaching points. God has been so very good to us. To His Name the gloryl" This is what ASI is all about.

Christian greetings from

Indonesia l

I want to extend our congratulations to all of the staff on the 50th anniversary of the Apostolic Bible Institute! We are so very grateful that we had the opportunity to attend ASI 20 years ago. We recently had the unique opportunity to have a mini ASI reunion on this side of the world. Our regional missionary retreat was held in Sydney, Australia. While we were there, we were with Bro. and Sis. Dale Starks and visited with Bro. and Sis. Jim Turk ington. In service that night, the Starks, the Turkingtons and the Whites sang, "We are the Class of '67"1 What a beautiful time we had together l We are involved in our Bible School here on the Island of Java -- much more primitive than AB!. Our students study by oil lamps and iron their clothes with charcoal'fired irons! We have 22 students this year from the islands of Java, Sumatra and Sulawesi. May the Lord richly bless you! Laborers Together, Rev. & Mrs. Rodger Wh ite, Class of 1967 MISSIONARIES TO INDONESIA

Brother Ball and I will always cherish fond memories of our time spent at ABI. We were just a small group of students and faculty, so I guess we seemed very close to each other. Sister Norris was very sick then, and all the students (we were all housed - the Norris family, teachers and students, at 464 Pierce St.) stayed up all night in intercessory prayer for her. We had many fun times, too, ice skating, playing volley ball (with Brother Norris the best player) and at gatherings at the saints' homes for special occasions. A special treat was when Sister Dunn (Sister Norl'is' mother) would come down to the kitchen and make '>ome of her scrumptuous gingerbread with lemon sauce. One of the highlights of the year was our Christmas drama directed by Brother Norris. Another WdS the revival we had with Brother R. G. Cook from Ohio. We were the first AB! couple to become married. Brother Norris often embarrassed us by saying that we started the "ball" rolling. We spent cleven years as missionaries in Bucaramanga, Columbia, SA clnd four years in Havana, Cuba. Brother Ball visited Puerto Rico sever-a I times, and had the privilege of baptizing one of the main evangelists thele in the precious Name of Jesus' While were were mis'>ionaries in Columbia, SA (very warm climate), we needed a refrigerator very badly. The first to respond to that need was Brother Norris. Olle of the greate'>t things that I learned from my spent at ABI was perseverance - DON'T GIVE That has helped me through the many years that I been serving the Lord. We arc looking forward great time of reunion this year'

time Upi

have to a

Sincerely, Grace & Elmer Ball Class of 1939 Kokomc, IN

Missionary Bennie DeMerchant, Brazil, '62 writes "Sister Eleanor Grant talked me into thinking about going to the "best" Bible school - Apostolic Bible Institute. I didn't follow all of Brother Norris' teaching of not to be a "fly-by-night" preacher or in Public Speaking, one who "beats around the bush ". I have been beating around the Amazon bush for years as I have also had to fly by night to save lives!"


Christian greetings in Jesus' Name from Christ Church, New Zealand' One of the outstanding memories in my mind is the unity of Spirit and fellowship we would have during and after a particular in-depth Truth revealing lesson. I can remember the entire class weeping and rejoicing for the Truth of God's Word during both Bro. Norris' and Bro. Sabin's classes. There was even a tongues and interpretation confirming the words we had heard. ABI was no ordinary school. I t is God's training station for His "fishers of men". Then, we loved the Sunday noon meals. They were always tops. Dramas were always a special time - lots of work, but you really got to know one another and there was a lot of team spirit. There is and will always be a strong feeling of camaraderie among ABI Alumni. We still enjoy singing, "ABI is the School We Love l " We are missionaries under appointment of the UPCI to the South Island, New Zealand. We have been here since July 1986. God is blessing - two have been baptized and one received the Holy Ghost. We have as many as 40 on a Sunday morning. New Zealand is a very traditional and apathy-filled land, but God is opening doors. We have two living children: Janell, age 9 and Matthew, age 7. Our first daughter' is in heaven ... we buried her the day she turned 14 months. She died of Sudden Infant Death Syndmme. We have had many good times and hard times since leaving ABI, pasta red two home missions churches and assisted in three churches. As the Psalmist said, "I've never seen the righteous forsaken or his seed out begging for brrad". Our' God is good' May God bless you on your 50th anniversary' We love you! Rev. Bob and Judy Addington, Class of 1972 MISSIONARIES TO NEW ZEALAND I have many fond memories of ABI. Brother Hodge was the boys' dOI'mitory supervisor. He decided to do something for the boys under his supervision. He decided to treat us to wheat cakes at a restaurant in the area. That was my first introduction to wheat cakes (pancakes), and they were so good that they hd " " been a favorite with me ever since. 11'10 of Brother Hodge's favorite sayings were - "Give to the world the best that you have, and the best will corne back to you" and "Hew to the line, and let the chips fall where they may". A young man in the Bible school was Gerald Mangun from Plymouth, IN. Gerald did lots of fasting. He had fasted so long once that Brother Norris commanded him to take food. He agreed to eat, but said that one of the young women students was so ill with tuberculosis that she \\las going to have to ledve school (Faith Urshan). He said that first prayer must be made for this young woman. Permission was granted and prayer was made. The young woman was miraculously healed.

(cant.) Most of us students were not over-supplied with money. The girls' dormitory did not have enough vanity table" so I was asked to take wooden apple crates, stand two of them close together on end, fit a board on top and cut it out like a vanity top. The idea worked. The girls were able to dress the makeshift vanity tables to look authentic. It seems that the Lord has not placed me behind the pulpit as a minister, or on the mission field as a missionary, but I continue to do with my hands what there is to do. Sincerely, Brother Lester Ward, Class of 1944 Donates much time to ABI landscaping Congratulations on your wonderful FIFTIETH birthday of AB!. It is a great thing that you are doing for the prospective ministers and missionaries of the ONENESS PENTECOSTAL MOVEMENT. I was a graduate of ABI with the Class of 1963 and can certainly say that Bible School training is well worth the effons of students and faculty alike. One of the outstanding moments while attending Bible School occur'red during drama practice. We were at the old Midway Tabernacle until midnight one night. I had taken a night off from work to be able to perfect my part of a blind man outside the gates of the city. When we all had become very tired and hungry, I was elected to go out for food for all the cast. All th is was well and good except that the streets were almost completely deserted. The St. Paul police SlOpped me on University Avenue to inquire what I was doing ut so late. I had a hard time convincing them that I was getting food for an entire cast of a third year drama at that time of night. That waS not enough -I also had a har-d time convincing the whole third year drama cast that I was VERY LATE getting their food back to them because I had been stopped by the police. When the Freshmen Class of 1963 paraded across the stage of Midway Tabernacle in introduction services at the beginning of the school year, we were traditionally required to tell who we were and where we were from. Being proud of corning to the north from Louisiana, but entering school from my temporary horne in Ohio, I was torn between what state I should claim to represent. Since feelings were high about allegiance to the "home" state, I hit upon a sure solution, "I am Billy Bates, hom Toledo, Ohio", I proudly pr路onounced, "but I am miginally from Louisiana". These words had har'dly reached the congr-egation when from behind me, in his inemitable way, Bmther Norris' deep resounding voice was clearly heard, " ... son; we all came from Adam". In His service, Rev. Billy D. Bates, M.Th, Class of 1963 LA DISTRICT CHRISTIAN EDUCATION DIRECTOR Assemblies of the Lord Jesus Christ

Bells of Jubilee rang in ABI's 50th year at the Alumni Breakfast at General Conference, MO. It has been a year of joys, sorrows, but predominately spiritual progress. God's spirit has surrounded us. Two students received the Holy Ghost. Thank God for His divine help in our first 50 years. We look forward to our next 50 years, but hope to be interrupted by the sound of the trumpet to celebrate the Grand J ublilee with the Lord!

ADMINISTRATION

Where Was Matthew? REV. S. G. NORRIS

Judging from the controversy over which is the correct biblical mode of water baptism: whether we should follow Matthew 28:19 or Acts 2:38, one might believe that Matthew was a careless individual, one not quile as mentally alert as some of the other Apostles or absolutely absent on the Day of Pentecost when Peter declared that water baptism should be administered in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. Nothing was mentioned on the Day of Pentecost of baptism in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, nor dny day, time or place after that. Why? Where was Matthew? Would he not defend his own writings? Let's look at the facts l Matthew, whose name was Levi until he became an apostle of Jesus, was a publican who lived at Capernaum of Galilee. He was a tax collector. He probably had charge .of the custom house there. He hand led custom receipts and taxes collected for the Roman government on the great Damascus Highway between Damascus and the Mediterranean seaports. He was evidently a brilliant man and of accurate detail. His gospel is so thorough and complete toat it is often referred to as the "Bible in miniature". Matthew and Peter were included with the one hundred and twenty who tarried in the Upper Room for the baptism of the Holy Ghost (Acts 1 :13). Matthew was present and stood up with the other eleven Apostles when Peter began to defend this glorious Pentecostal experience of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:4). Does it seem possible that Matthew would permit Peter to make a mistake on such an important question as water baptism on the Day of Pentecost when so many souls wel'e honestly questioning how to be baptized? No. If Peter had been wrong, Matthew would have been the first to stop him, but please remember that Matthew had just received the Holy Ghost the same as Peter and the other one hundred and twenty disciples. They understood clearly for the first time that Jesus was the Mighty God, the everlasting Father and the PI'ince of Peace. If Peter's words were wrong, why did Matthew keep silent? One of the greatest proofs that Peter was right is the fact that Matthew stood right by him in approving silence, sanctioning every word that was spoken in that wonderful second chapter of Acts which records Peter's sermon. All the Apostles present, without a doubt, helped Peter baptiLe those three thousand souls. Matthew baptized many on that day in the precious Name of Jesus, and furthermore, not only he but all the Apostles continued to baptize in the Name of Jesus. Please note the forty-second verse of Ihis second chapter of Acts... "And they continued steadfastly in the Apostles' doctrine and fellowship". Peter's doctrine of water baptism became the Apostles' doctrine of water baptism. Please see Acts 8:16 and Acts 19:5-6. Peter was the spokesman bec.ause Jesus had given him the keys to the Kingdom of heaven.

Rev. 5. G. Norris is Founder and President of the Apostolic Bible Institute.

There is no record in the Bible of an\ one ever being baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Jesus spoke of waler baptism on several occasions during His earthly ministry. This was preceding His ascension and the giving of the Holy Ghost to His followers. Not one disciple received the Holy Spirit until the Day of Pentecost. The Gospels record the ministry of Jesus. He spoke in parables or simple stories and used illustrations that they might understand. He lIsed such terms of relationship such as Father...Son ... Holy Ghost, because their hearts had not been filled with His Spirit. But at Pentecost, they all understood, inclUding Matthew, that Jesus fulfilled all the mystery of the Godhead. The Apostles agreed with Peter that Jesus was both Lord and Christ. The conclusion of this matter is that there is "One Lord, one faith, and one baptism" Ephesians 4:5. Matthew realized this on the Day of Pentecost and helped Peter and the other disciples baptize three thousand souls. Water baptism for remission of sins can only be administered in the Name ,)f Jesus Christ or Lord Jesus!

The ABI faculty, after a successful teaching schedule prayed and praised in unison. Five days a week, after classes, they gathered for prayer. Those pl'ayers rose for students, their families and their future usefulness in the Kingdom of God. It seemed that God was pleased with their earnestness and sincerity and sent His power in appreciation. Oh, what power, what unity and love l A visiting minister remarked after attending the pl'ayer session with us, "Now I know your secret!" Snidely I spelled out, "W-O-R-K! Hard work l That's it l " His answer came, "No. That may be, but it's that faculty prayer meeting after classes - that's it l " At one prayer session, although I rejoiced with the others and recognized the glorious glow, no great blessing came to me personally. In my mind and spirit I ruminated over what seemed to be an impossible trouble, Then all at once, God Who gathers together with two or three who are in unified prayer made Himself real to me, His almighty power, His ability to be "in the midst", His personal closeness, His ever-faithfulness in answering eVel-y need, flooded over me. I remembered that He had never failed me in my walk of over sixty years with Him l

Allelujah! MRS. S. G. NORRIS

My prayers changed to praises of "Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah l" What a closeness the Lord demonstrated to mel What a peace I What a longing that the faculty prayer might last longer and longer' "Allelujah I" Wha t a word I What a praise! I repeated it over and over; it meant more than ever before. For days afterward, I felt that Allelujah l was MY word. Did those who used it as a habit realize its import 7 I wished they did.

'"

$~

Every reference to the word made me happy. In the Indiilna Trumpet I read, "Hallelujah: The Highest Praise" by Rev. D. Deckard. The article is inspir'ing and should be in all of our reading. I quote from it, "There arc two basic words that come together to form Hallelujah. The first part is hallal, which mean, to shine, to boast, to rave, to be clamorously foolish". Please note the following quote, "It is the word used to desnibe King David as he brought the ark from the house of Obed-Edom. As David danced before the Lord, he was praising God with hallal praise. Therefore, hallal would most simply be described as praising God with all of our physical, mental and emotional strength, even to appearing Foolish to )omc onlookers. The second word is "Jah" which is a condensation of the Hebrew word for God, Jahveh". After my delightful experience with "Hallelujah" I walked through my house praising God with "Hallelujahs" with all my strength. What joy! What peace I Awakened by my interest in that lovely word "Hallel'Jjah", I found it explaineJ in many Christian magazines. Focused Light by Thetus Tenney gave many lessons on praise proving that our praises should be to God "for what He is l " Why this sudden (to me) concentration on this word 7 Was it that I was just noticing because of its interest to me? No, I found that the Lord speaks to His people on one subject many times for we are His familyl Hallelujah, the highest form of praise is mentioned in Revelation191,3,4,6. HJndreds of references to praise are in the Psalms. The last five Psa ms 145-150 are concentrations of praise to our great God. Praise forms the center of our worship. Worship pleases Him. The Lord's prayer starts with worship before any equest is given. We worship Him in song, also. Hallelujah invariably follows all my requests for my hope and confidence are in lhe only God Who can answer Hallelujah to His Name l The highest fom f praise l

Return

to the Mountain REV. G. F. GRANT

How can we have power with God? Every time we pray, we want to touch Heaven and have our prayers answered. When we preach, we want the anointing of the Holy Ghost and to see souls touched. How does such power come)

I'

Jesus ministered to the people for many hours. As the day wore on, He noticed that the people were restless and hungry. He had compassion on them and performed the crowning miracle of the day. He created enough food from five loaves of bread and two fishes to feed 5000 men with some left over. What a miracle l This was a high point of glory. Jesus gained favor among the people. He grew tired. Some of us might have been tempted to stay with the crowd and enJoy the popularity and tem pted to become proud. 8u t Jesus sent the crowd dnd His disciples ,!Way. The Bible says in Ma tthew 14: 22 -"And straigh tway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart ... " Why' To bdin power. We read about Saul, a shy farmer boy. God allowed him to be anointed the first king of Israel. God gave him a new heart for this task, the Bible says. Saul met his first challenge, as king. He received the message that Israel's ne ighbor ing country, J abcsh-G ilead, had been threa tened to be invaded by the Ammonites if they did not surrender. Saul tur-ned to the prophet Samuel for godly counsel. Samuel prayed and they sent a message to Jabesh-G ilead advising them to hold on and buy time from the Ammonites. Saul told them that Israel would help defeat the enemy. Saul's army went to the aid of this country and God gave the victory. The Ammonites were defeated. Victory. That is what we all want: to defeat our enemies. But we must remember that it is God who gives the victory. Unfortunately, Saul served only two years of his reign when he forgot the source of his power. The next challenge WdS the battle against the Philistines. Samuel told Saul he would come in seven days and offer a sacrifice before the battle. Saul decided to ofrer the sacrifice himself. In Just the ~econd year of his reign, he lost the klllgdom. Saul forgoL where hiS strength lay. In times of revivcll, we must go back to the mountain alone to pray. John records that the people had really accepted JesLis' teaching so much that they wanted to make Him king. The disciples were riding this crest of popularity. In these times, one cannot be Influenced by even lhe closest of friends. Jesus knew He did nOI come to eanh to establish an earthly kingdom. He' senl His diSCiples away. He went alone to the mount.lin to pra~ and refocus His attention on His purpose. We must always remember' wher'e our strength comes from. Because Jesus went back to the mountain, when the tempest arose the next morning in a boat, Jesus had power' to walk on the sea and calm it.

Rell. Grant is Executille Vice-President and Instructor of Theology at Apostolic Bible Institute.

If dnyone had a mighty converSion, it was Paul. On the road to Dam.lscus. With a letter In his pocket which allowed him to kill the Christians, d blinding light from heaven knocked him from his horse. He saw God face to face. He got a call, if anyone did. God told him to go to Damascus and it would be shown to him what he should do. If anyone could preach, it should have been Paul, or was it so' For the next three years, he went to the mount in seclusion in the Arabian Desert. God poured whJt he needed to help others, into his heart. Paul was not flushed with feelings of success. He convinced the Jews MIGHTILY of Jesus. But, time and time again, he went back to the mount. He would do his part, but he knew where his success came from. Return to the mount! With all the power He held, Jesus returned again and again. Realize the source of your power. The Bible promises that "they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength". Let us become successful on the mount.

In Loving Memory

JOHN C. PASS National City, New Jersey

Member of the jubilee Class of 7987 Apostolic Bible Institute St. Paul, Minnesota

John Pass was a pacesetter for the Class of 1987. He enrolled at the Apostolic Bible Institute in September 1984 with a burden for a certain city. He responded to his call of God like a marathon runner preHe laid aside every paring for a race. weight; changed careers and became a student, gave up a job, home and security. The goal before him was serious. His quiet leadership had a definite, positive influence in his class. The pace he set was similar to that of a runner. Professional runners use a pacer signal watch to set the speed they wish to run. The initial "beep" is heard, and this signal means to put your foot on the ground. The next "beep" means to place your other foot on the ground. When that stride is maintained, the runner sets the pacer watch a little faster, nudging him to respond with an even greater speed.

John set his watch. He was not trying to compete or break class records. He worked on improving his own pace. His attendance was already perfect; his grades were at the top; he always kept a cheerful attitude. The class noticed and increased their pace. He challenged himself and set more rigorous schedules. First on his list each day was his devotion and the study of God's Word. He and his wife completed their reading the Bible through, not due until May. He loved the class prayers and was admired and respected as a spiritual leader. Then others in the class again set their pacer signal a little faster.

Both john and Grace Pass read their Bible through October 7985 - May 7986.

This fine man knew how to fully respond to the Spirit of God, even to the last beautiful entry into another world. He was totally worshipping God as he crossed the finish line and won his race! His guide was not an external runner's pacer watch, but the Great God of Glory who motivated him in this profound way to change the lives of those around him. He is still a pacesetter. His life is echoing: "Do a little more for God today!" "Sacrifice something for God today!" "Praise and. love God more today!" The Jubilee Crass of 1987 will miss their dear friend, John Pass.

This is a class of great talent, especially musically; there are many instrumentalists and vocal ists. This is a class that will make you laugh! The 1986 Christmas skit by the Second Year is often described as "the best in a long time". We will never forget the date chip. This is a class that may not always win like taking the last place in the Basketball and Volleyball tournaments - but always displays a Christian attitude. This is a spirited class. They have their own class song - "We Are the Class of 88". In the 1987 Cookie Eating Contest, a female member of this class placed a high third. She was the only female eater!

CLASS OF 1989 Class Scripture: "For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee ", Isaiah 47:73 In January, we hosted a beautiful dinner. The theme, "ABI Friends in Harmony," was carried through by musical notes and pictures of students and staff.

Kev in Long, Presiden t Fort Smith, AR

James Warden, V-President FaYdteville, GA

Our class was assigned cleanup duties at AB! functions. There came the realization that in order to be great, one must first learn to be a servant. So, everyone pitched in for a quick, easy, fun time of cleanup. When the mid-term break arrived, everyone was ready for a good game of volleyball. At the end of the tau rnament, the F reshmen found themselves the winners. What joy! Another victory was in store when the long-awaited basketball game arrived. Class spirit and enthusiasm were fantastic. Our servant's heart paid off. We were number one! To top off this victory on th is snowy evening, we had a class outing at Pjzza Hut.

Shelly Church, Secretary Oshawa, Ontario, Canada

Rhoda Odum, Treasurer Dayville. CT

Our class has three husband and wife teams attending AB!. We were excited to witness two of our class members, Lorena Schwartz and Dan Goebel, receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost! A beautiful spirit of God hovered over our class prayer meetings on Tuesdays. Testimonies of God's provisions were so encouraging.

Sandra Beighley Stanley, WI

Terry Bennett Knoxville, IA

What a time we had in the various seminars: we learned about prayer, reaching out to the lost, and how to be truly great in the Kingdom of God. Sometimes there were shouts. Sometimes there were tears. Sometimes there was simply the sweet presence of Almighty God in our midst. ABI, you really are tile school we love! Kenneth Bower Benton Harbor, MI

MEMORIES FROM OUR ALUMNI "Brother Norris' hospitality was well known. At Christmas when a few of us who did not get to go home for the holidays remained in the dorm, he planned a party in his home and invited us to attend. Brother and Sister Norris love students and every Freshman Class was the "best one" - and he really made us believe that l We were young and away from home for the first time in our lives, but we felt a part of a great family and loved and cared for with a loving "father" and "mother". Since I had no liVing mother, Sister Norris helped me plan one of the most important events of my life my wedding. When we needed an extended family, the entire Norris family was there - Gram Norris, Sister Norris, Brother Norris, Mary, Eleanor, Jim, their spouses and we still have a very warm feeling when we remember the entire Norris familyl" Glenna Brott, '49, NE, Pastor's Wife.

I wanted to submit this article to show what God did for my life. When Rev. Larry Thornhill was the pastor In Wonhington, MN in 1973, I was invited to preach and give my testimony in his church. This article appeared in a Worthington newspaper column -

In February 7973 I wrote this item in my column. 'When Rick comes home to Worthington, a few people shudder. He'd be the first to admit that. For most of his life, from age 74 to 25, Rick was a menace to He drank to excess. He burglanzed and society. stole COl'S, among other things. It was like his middle nome was Trouble. A t least twice he was committed to the St. Cloud Reformatory from local courts. One sentence was for five years. He served two of those years. But last weekend, Rick was back in town speaking at the Full Gospel Tabernacle. He says a religious experience has changed his life. It happened at the Upper Room Coffee house in Mankato which is a meeting place for young people. Rick says that he was touched by the Holy Spirit, was rebaptized and that he spoke in tongues. Since this experience Rick says that he has not been in trouble and has kicked his alcohol and drug habits. I want to believe him and I Wish him well. But I'm filled with doubt. Is he a Maverick? Or is my own faith too shaky? This week, three years later, my questions were answered. I received an invitation to the graduation of Dick M. SchueI' (known as Rick) from the Apostolic Bible Institute in St. Paul.'

Congratulations and God bless you on your 50th anniversaryl Also, how marvellous that both Brother and Sister Norris are still teaching! What a miracle that the Lord has wrought. (cont.)

I am so thankful that the Lord led me to AB!. well remember how it happened. The first year of Camp Galilee, my sister (now the wife of Brother Daniel Mena) Ingeborg and I drove to camp. My purpose was for Ingeborg to receive the Holy Ghost. I wanted her to have it before I went to Africa. Well, the Lord did something wonderful for both of us. Ingeborg received the Holy Ghost and while Brother Norris taught on the "Tabernacle in the Wilderness", I immediately felt led to enroll in the Apostolic Bible Institute for the fall term at once and go to Africa later. How thrilled and inspired I was to sit and hear such wonderful anointed teaching of the Word of God every day. My soul was being fed. I graduated in June 1962 and in October 1962 I received my appointment to go to Liberia, West Africa. Seven years later I transferred to Accra, Ghana, West Africa where I have been teaching in the College of Bible Accra, Ghana and since 1983 I have also taught in a Bible School in the Ivory Coast. If it had not been for the wonderful teaching of the Word of God in ABI, I would not be doing what I am doing now. It is so rewarding to pass on the Word of God that has once been taught to you. How I love c:nd appreciate you and your labor for the Master. How I thank you for standing for the Word of God. Only eternity can reveal how great an influence you have had on multitudes of many different nations in the world l God bless you, Else Lund, Class of 1962 MISSIONARY TO GHANA

"One day in Doctrine closs after Brother Norris opened all the windows to woke us up, all the sub-zero oil' blew in. I scrambled for my fake fur coot and buckled up. That day we had a marvelous lesson on the Mighty God in Christ. I always was taught and believed in one God,' however, that day the REVELA nON overwhelmed me. I was thrilled allover and began to praise God with all I had. A beautiful Spirit and power swept over the whole room and it was happening to everyone. That great experience of the revelation of God penefrated our heartsi It is like the Tabernacle Plan. I had repented (brazen altar), been baptized in Jesus' Name (lover), but now the light of the revelation (candle sticks), flooded my soul. Thank God for ABI. Through our humble efforts and the support of the people of God for the last 23 years, we have been able to spread this REVELA nON flame to thousands of Brazilians. They will meet you] Brother and Sister Norris, up therei" Theresa Shomberg-DeMerchant, '57, Missionary to Brazil.

NORTH DAKOTA DISTRICT Early settlers of North Dakota were pioneers in thei r own right. Illusions of grandeur and ease had no place in their lives. Dreams that would become a tangible reality, walked with them through the land. Lush grasslands felt the point of a horse-drawn plow bite deeply into the earth, savoring the richness of unturned loam. The blazing heat of a summer's sun was softened by the warm glow of sunrise and sunset marking the boundaries of each new day. Blinding snowstorms were made bearable by the anticipation of warm spring rains that would nurture each tiny grain sprout promising maturity and the hope of a future harvest. How similar to these people and their dreams, are those who labor in "H is" harvest in North Dakota. We do not ask for, nor offer ease, popularity, financial security. We simply offer the burdened heart of missions, the calloused hand of involvement, the bended knee of prayer and the tearwashed eye of faith and vision. We believe in simple things like friendliness, cooperation and love. We believe in profound things like sound doctrine, holiness of attitude and action, living lives of good report and revival. And we believe in you! Come over into North Dakota and help us! Together, we'll reach our world! David Walters - District Superintendent Box 2475 Bismarck, N D 58501
