Isaac and Amber Rogers, along with their sons Cayden and Tyus, are missionaries with Mission Aviation Fellowship serving in Kalimantan, Indonesia. The Rogers family has served with MAF for over 10 years. As a pilot/mechanic, Isaac shares, “The airplane is an amazing tool to serve Christ in areas like Central Kalimantan! With our floatplanes, we have the ability to serve over 250 villages. We transport national pastors, evangelists, teachers, the sick and dying, the rich and the poor in hope that many may know Jesus Christ.”
During their first term in Papua, Amber enjoyed finding various ministry opportunities that complimented her main role as caretaker of their young children. Some of these ministries included training a national preschool teacher, helping start a board of directors for street kid ministry, and hosting many guests. During this term in Kalimantan, she enjoys extending hospitality to visitors and using her teaching background to homeschool the boys.
Isaac was raised in Portland, OR. He grew up in a Christian home and gave his life to Christ after his sophomore year in high school. After high school he earned his Associates degree in Building Construction Technology. In 2001, while attending Portland Community College to earn his Airframe and Powerplant license as a career change, he discovered mission aviation and MAF. He already had his private pilot’s license and a heart for missions, and quickly realized that God was leading them to serve overseas with MAF. Isaac has completed Bible courses at several colleges and earned his instrument and commercial pilot’s license in order to serve as a pilot/mechanic overseas. From the high mountains of Papua to the rivers of Central Kalimantan, Isaac has flown over 4,800 flights with MAF in Indonesia.
Amber also grew up in the Portland, OR area. At the age of five she began attending church with her mother and younger sister. Through the godly influence of her Sunday School teachers and her mother, she gave her life to the Lord and was baptized at the age of eight. Amber has had a heart for serving the Lord since she was young. Through her youth group, she went on a number of short-term mission trips. Isaac and Amber met in junior high, and after three years of dating, were married in 1996. In 1999, Amber graduated from Cascade College in Portland, earning her B.S. in Liberal Studies and her teaching credentials. She taught for five years at Portland public schools before they joined MAF.
