I Will Do a New Thing (2011 edition)
I Will Do a New Thing: Unreached Peoples and the Founding of the U.S. Center for World Mission
by Roberta H. Winter
It all started when Ralph Winter gave an address at Lausanne called “The Unfinished Task,” urging the missions world to focus on a new type of evangelism to reach “hidden” or “unreached” peoples. Soon he and his wife Roberta were founding a center to help mission agencies fulfill that task. Around them gathered a group of experienced missionaries, computer scientists, and unusually dedicated young people in order to buy a college campus.
This story, as told by Roberta, of their cliff-hanging prayer meetings and spiritual battles with a cult will reignite your determination to work with Jesus to “finish the Father’s work” (John 4).
This new edition includes previously unpublished chapters from her original manuscript, and an updated epilogue inviting you to partner with the USCWM today, as the task remains unfinished.
Don’t read this story unless you’re willing to have your horizons stretched, your faith tested, and your future disturbed!
