The Flying Man Pt 7: Lifetime Achievement Award by Rick Wood

(Read the original article published in the Nov/Dec edition of Mission Frontiers magazine)

This article announces that Dr. Ralph Winter received the lifetime achievement award in the September 2008 joint meeting in Denver of The Mission Exchange (formerly the EFMA) and CrossGloabl Link (formerly the IFMA).

The article gives a short bio of accomplishments and reasons why he was given the award.

I am again honored to serve under this brilliant and dedicated man of God.  I am glad to meet him, hear from him and be a part of his community.  Dr. Winter is one of my heroes and it is good to see him receive this award from the top mission alliances in the country.

I am amazed at what he has accomplished, the ideas he has came up with and the fact that despite cancer and other aliments, he is still going forward working in the missions realm after his 84th birthday.  He could have retired years ago, but he is still burdened for Christ’s lost sheep.

I celebrate you Dr. Winter.
