Dedicated to the memory of
Richard (Dick) Anderson
March 19, 1913 - April 9, 2003

May his ministry of encouragement continue through every generation until the promise of Christ’s return is fulfilled.

This blog is published by Paul Anderson with its first daily post on January 1, 2016. The commentary in these daily devotionals are from the writings of Richard (Dick) Anderson, a missionary with the Evangelical Free Church of America Missions in the Democratic Republic of Congo from 1939-1975. After retiring from active field service in Congo, Anderson continued serving the Evangelical Free Church Missions producing documentary films of their international fields until 1984. 

During Anderson’s retirement he began a dial-in program called “Inspiration for Living” which delivered a daily recorded message. Any person could call in each day and hear a new 90 second recording which gave encouragement and hope and shared promises of God from the Word of God. The program lasted for 17 years. It was written and voiced by Richard Anderson and hosted by the Crossroads Church (formerly Evangelical Free Church) in Turlock, California. 
The 2016 entries in this blog are from a year's worth collection of “Inspiration for Living” and was edited by Richard’s wife Dorothy Anderson. That collection has been published as a book and is available from purchase at - "90 Seconds with God's Promises."

We pray that these contributions of hope and encouragement are touching the lives of people who need hope and encouragement.  If they have touched you, you are welcome and invited to let us know.  We keep all correspondence confidential and never share with others what readers share with us.

This blog is not monetized in any way and accepts no advertising revenue.  The only revenue received is through the selling of the book 90 Seconds with God's Promises available POD at It is a mission of love for our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ, the Son of God, and for Almighty God, our Father, and sustained by the Holy Spirit.  It is also a ministry of honor to the memory of Richard Anderson.
