Hi I'm Roger C. Millar

I'm an Idaho farm boy by birth, a cardiovascular surgeon by profession, and happy to say that I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of twelve children, raised on a potato farm in Idaho. I had a goal to become a mechanical engineer set when I was in the 4th grade. I went to the University of Utah, was a diver on the swim team, and enjoyed the engineering curriculum. At age twenty I served a mission for the Mormon church for two years in Australia. This was a turning point in my life when I learned that I loved to serve others. After returning to school I changed my major to medicine, graduating from the U O U . I took all my postgraduate training in general surgery and cardiovascular and thoracic surgery at Duke University. I practiced in Medford Oregon for 10 years,moved to Salt Lake City where I practiced for 16 years. I practiced in St George,Utah for 8 years. I am now retiried and have accepted a call from the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to presided over the England London South Mission for three years. My wife and I are now serving in London, England. We have nine married children and 27 grand children.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was raised as a "mormon", the time came when I had to decided for myself what was right for me. By reading the Book of Mormon, praying about it,I came to know that Jesus is my Lord and Redeemer. I have learned that serving others brings great happiness to me. I know that we do have a Heavenly Father who hears and answers prayers, who loves us and wants us to be happy.

How I live my faith

I don't smoke or drink alcohol. I pay a full tithe of 10%. I have served willingly in many leadership positions in the church. My wife and I are leaving our home and children and grandchildren for 3 years to live in London,England to presided over 140 missionaries and oversee the missionary work in that area. This we do because we were asked. We do it without pay and as our choice to respond to the call which be believe ultimately came from God.
