The Freys: Rodney and Cheri accepted Christ as their Saviour in 1987 while stationed at Luke Air Force Base in Phoenix, Arizona. Shortly after that, Rodney realized God was calling him to missions. He answered the call to preach the Gospel and began preparation for the ministry while stationed in Germany.

During their tour of duty at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, they helped two missionaries to the Native Americans. With this, Christ broke their hearts and began to reveal His will to them. That year a missionary preparing for Argentina came to Minot Baptist Church and told the church of the need for a work to the Mapuche People. Immediately, Rodney knew that God's call for them was to go to the Mapuche People, and he made this call public to the church.

Sent out of Minot Baptist Church, with the help of many other Local Independent Baptist Churches and Baptist Missions to Forgotten Peoples, Rodney and Cheri arrived in Argentina in February of 2004. They are now in the Andes Mountains serving the Lord in the heart of the Mapuche communities of Argentina and Chile.

The Ministry: Rodney and Cheri are homesteading in Aluminé, a small town close to the largest Mapuche community in Argentina where they presently are holding Bible studies. The continued language training in Spanish and in the future with Mapudugun is for the purpose of speaking the mysteries of Christ to this forgotten people group. To locate pockets of Mapuche in the Andes to distributing John and Romans, tracts, and just spending time with the people is a large part of the ministry at this time. All though it can be difficult, they have found that there is nothing to hard for the Lord and He continues to make the way for this mountain ministry to the Mapuche People.

The Bible Goal: Rodney and Cheri seek to lead Mapuche People to Christ, baptize those that receive Christ, and then teach them the Scriptures. The goal is to train preachers and plant churches throughout Argentina and Chile's Mapuche communities. These churches will be Independent Baptist, soul winning, Bible teaching, and missions supporting as the Bible teaches all churches are to be.
