The Home-Call of Roger – our missionary in Paraguay

Sadly, suddenly and quite unexpectedly on 18th March, 2019 the Lord called Roger home.

Roger was the devoted and adored husband of Judith. A wonderful, loving and wise father to Michael, Lydia and Jonah.

He was a much-loved, respected, wise and appreciated Pastor both in Sweden (his home-country) and in Paraguay where they have been on the mission-field for the past 8 1/2 years.

Roger had (along with Judith) a passion for sharing the Gospel and particularly in more recent years in training new pastors and leaders. At his church the day before he died Roger said “We have taken good care of you; we have planted the seeds and invested a lot in all of you and now we are waiting to see where it is growing. Now it’s your turn”.

He will be greatly missed by so many but most of all by all his family.

The new church in Paraguay

Here are two photos from our missionary family in Paraguay.

Community day in the new church in Paraguay - supported by Malvern Link URC One is the occasion of a community day held in the new church building in Paraguay. The finishing touches have yet to made before the official opening, but our missionaries celebrated their return after their trip to England and Sweden with a very successful and popular day of celebration.
