This is a page from the rough draft of Roberta Winter’s well-known book I Will Do A New Thing about the history of the mission organization her husband Ralph Winter founded in 1976, the U.S. Center for World Mission now called Frontier Ventures.
Even though this is not the time of the year when Ralph Winter had a birthday, I came across birthday cards given to him when he turned 70 on December 8, 1994 this week. So below is one given to him by an elementary school class at the private Christian school that was on the Pasadena, CA campus at which Winter established his mission organization and university. The school is still here, Judson International School.
*The cause that David Winter refers to in his letter is the dedication of a college campus in Pasadena, CA to become a world mission center with the focus of the unreached people groups in the world learning the Good News of Jesus. This undertaking meant a lot of fundraising for the purchase of this property which took 12 years altogether.
