The Editorial of Ralph D. Winter
Founder of the U.S. Center for World Mission
At first I was shocked as I read the material John Holzmann had written up about the Leadership '88 conference coming up in Washington, DC, the last week of June. You may be shocked too.
But as I went into further (don't you give up on the first page!) I began to realize that he really wasn't panning it after all. He was dramatically portraying some of the real misunderstandings people have had. Also see Jay Gary's exciting background treatment of the Lousanne movement itself.
But while encouraging younger leaders to get to Washington, DC, don't pass by lightly the powerful story of people in their 70's and 80's and what they can do in missions and don't miss Wade Coggins on "Native Missions," with wisdom concentrated on every line.
HOWEVER, HOWEVER, the real stir here at the Center these days revolves around the booming series of REGIONAL MOBILIZERS' WORKSHOPS, and our growing vision for the true wonders---not just $8 million---that can be produced by the 1,000 former campaign workers (the 8,000 "Last $1,000" donors themselves) plus the constantly growing army of 40,000 most active readers of this bulletin.
Don't miss out!
With great respect,
Ralph D. Winter
