Welcome to the Rogers’ Ministry and Family Blog!

Welcome to our Blog!

Missionaries are known for their travels. But we are not the only ones. You been traveling on the Internet, and that’s what brought you to our blog. We are David and Ruth Ann Rogers, veteran church planting missionaries in Santiago, Chile, since 1984. Our years of experience in Chile have taught us much. It is our intention to share some of what we have learned through this blog.

Our family has gone through many changes over the years we have served in Chile. The task of missions is likewise changing in the 21st Century. We are changing on every front. But, what has NOT changed is the urgency–and the validity–of carrying the life-transforming truth of the Gospel of Christ to the nations of the world. Perhaps by reading our blog you find ways how to be a part of this task with eternal significance.

Good learners look for good mentors. Our years of experience in Chile have not been like those of the solitary pioneer missionaries at the beginning of the 20th century who served alone on the frontiers. Long before we arrived in Chile, the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism (www.abwe.org) was tilling the soil of the hearts of the Chilean people. Since first arriving in Chile 1953, ABWE missionaries have at any one time  numbered as few as 5 or 6, and as many as 55 (including children). ABWE stands firmly for evangelizing and discipling the peoples of the world in obedience to Christ’s command in Matthew 28:19-20. That is our stance too.

Join us as we continue to travel down the road that God has called us to walk. And, if these thoughts have in any way encouraged, challenged or inspired you, we would love to know about it!

Prayerfully Serving the Lord of the Harvest,

David & Ruth Ann Rogers

Happily Married for 31 years!

About David Rogers, Magister en Artes

Este blog nace de una profunda gratitud al Autor de la vida, al eterno "YO Soy," quien me dio todo lo que tengo y lo que soy. Sin El, nada sería. Pero como no todos en el mundo han llegado a conocerle, también procuro dar una razón por la fe que tengo. Es una razón no basada en emociones ni en la intuición o el esperar algo mejor. Sino la razón está fundamenta en la verdad eterna, que no es incambiable y que es defensible, la verdad de Dios, el Creador y Sustentador de este mundo. ** Para los que se dedican a las credenciales, aquí están las de este autor, profesor, y misionero: 35 años viviendo en un país adoptivo, 39 años esposo de una misma dama, padre de 4 hijos destacados, abuelo de 4 tiernos nietos, amigo y compañero de colaboradores que han visto mis fallas y aun me llaman su amigo. ENGLISH: This blog is born of deep gratitude to the Author of life, to the eternal "I Am," who gave me everything I have and what I am. Without Him, nothing would be. But as not everyone in the world has come to know him, I also try to give a reason for the faith I have. It is a reason not based on emotions or intuition or expecting something better. But the reason is based on the eternal truth, which is not unchanging and is defensible, the truth of God, the Creator and Sustainer of this world.   ** For those who are dedicated to credentials, here are those of this author, profesor, and missionary: 35 years living in an adoptive country, 39 years husband of the same lady, father of 4 outstanding children, grandfather of 4 sweet grandchildren, friend and partner of collaborators who have seen my failures and still call me their friend.
