Roger & Margie Upson
Hello we are Roger and Margie Upson, originally from farming districts near South Auckland, and we are privileged to have joined the team here at Titoki Christian Healing Centre.
God directed us to the former Bible College of NZ (now Laidlaw College) in the late 80's as mature students for 3 years. That time confirmed a call to missions and we were with Serving in Missions (SIM) for 17 years in Nigeria, West Africa.
We originally worked at a retreat centre in the central Plateau in Nigeria, before moving into areas of community development for Roger and counselling and caring for those people living with HIV/AIDS (Margie).
We returned to NZ in 2008 and served in the Personnel Department NZ office of SIM as well as Margie completing her counselling degree through Laidlaw.
We have returned this year from 2 years serving at a similar centre in France, although one with a focus on counselling cross-cultural missionaries. Roger looked after a same sized property there. Roger will help care for the property here at Titoki along with the band of committed volunteers, while Margie will serve in hospitality and counselling.
We have four adult children and 5 grandchildren... and counting!
