Roger arrived in Chile, South America in 1976 for a 10 day short-term mission trip in the midst of dark political turmoil and yet a great sense of spiritual hunger. It was there that God spoke to Roger about remaining behind as the rest of the team returned to the US. Initially he thought he would stay for another three to four months to disciple those who were coming to Christ. Now, 40 years have passed and his permanent home is Chile. Today, the Vineyard of Las Condes has four more full time Pastors, has planted five more churches, has sent missionaries to other nations and above all, has and is experiencing the renewing power and Presence of God through Kingdom Ministry. Roger is not only the Senior Pastor of this local church, but also, as a renewal speaker he has spoken in more than 20 countries, hundreds of mult-denominational churches and conferences "doing the stuff"... witnessing miracles, praying for the sick and opressed and leading people to Christ. Roger and Gloria now reside in Vitacura, Chile (a community in the eastern sector of Santiago).
