Our Purpose

To serve the Lord during our retirement years in whatever capacity He leads (1 Corinthians 10:31).

We also want to encourage others who have recently retired or will soon retire to consider finishing strong by serving the Lord during their retirement years instead of the typical American retirement dream; to focus on “Eternal Retirement” not temporal (2 Corinthians 4:18).

Currently, God is calling us to serve Him as missionaries in South Africa.


We are Roger and Sue Turner.  God has called us out of retirement to serve Him as Missionaries in South Africa.  The purpose of this website is to introduce first-time visitors to our ministry, and to keep repeat-visitors updated.  May the Lord bless you this day!

To read how the Lord has called us out of retirement and into Church Planting, read the Our Testimony and Calling page.
