This book, in short, interesting stories, gives an inspiring look into the life of one couple who
responded to God's call to career mission service. You will be convicted by the dedication to stand
firm, even in the midst of peril. Their faith is a shining beacon of what it means to be a Christ Follower.
Even though you travel through history, the situations are as relevant in today's world as when they
were experienced. This book is a call to missions and a call to pray for those who serve internationally.

A grand, sweeping panorama of missionary life and ministry. One rich experience after another
allows us to walk with the author through a lifetime of exciting, faithful service to God in six different
countries in Asia and the Pacific. The rewards of such faithful work are seen in the details of lives
changed and churches begun. This compelling biography will enable those contemplating a mission
career to prepare for the challenges, opportunities, dangers, and rewards such a ministry will bring.
It will encourage those who are ready to surrender everything in following God's call to anticipate
the fulfillment that can and will be theirs. Those who "hold the ropes" here at home on behalf of
missionaries going overseas will find joy and affirmation in all they have done to support God's sent
ones through prayer and giving.

Here is your chance to get the inside story from Joyce Rogers of what it means to be a missionary
for thirty-five years in some of the most exotic places in the world. If you already know Joyce, you
will feel like you are listening to her tell her fascinating stories over a cup of tea. If you don't know
her personally, you soon will because she bears her heart as she takes you with her family on their
winding missionary journey through Southeast Asia.

Executive Director, International Orality Network
It was my personal privilege to serve alongside Ray and Joyce Rogers for many of their years as
Southern Baptist missionaries in Indonesia. They were a model and mentor to others as they
faithfully shared the gospel and planted churches in a sometimes hostile environment. Their
intimate walk with the Lord was an inspiration and example to those who knew them and enabled
God to manifest His power through their witness and ministry in sometimes miraculous ways.
“Rejoice” is a book that reflects this life-long pilgrimage and celebrates God’s work through these
