Ralph and Roberta Winter served as missionaries for ten years with a Mayan tribal group in Guatemala. For another ten years, Dr. Winter was on the faculty of the School of World Mission at Fuller Seminary where he came alongside 1,000 missionaries to study their field situations in depth. Teaching and studying history led him to look at what God had done in the 4000 years since Abraham.Dr. Winter thus began assembling facts and statistics about where the Gospel had penetrated,and where it had not. As he put the whole picture together, he saw a startling,and at first frightening,situation. Not only were most of the world's individuals without the Gospel, most of them were in Biblical 'nations' which no one was targeting. Thus, these individuals had little or no hope of hearing the Gospel, no matter how fast the Church grew where it was already established. So in 1976 the Winters founded the U.S. Center for World Mission,to emphasize the unfinished missionary task to reach the unreached peoples of the world.they have four married daughters, all missionaries, and 13 grandchildren growing up in three countries.
