Our loss is heaven's gain. Thank you for your gifts to the Roger Anderson Memorial Fund.


We were saddened to hear of the passing of our good friend Rev. Roger Anderson. Roger was someone who had a love for people everywhere. His life was one of service for the Lord and for others. His dedication to Daystar’s mission in Africa was evident through his support through the church, personal giving and raising funds through friends, family, churches and just about anyone else who would listen. In 1988 Roger and his wife Dottie stepped in as fundraisers for Daystar in the U.S., which was after his retirement from Christ Presbyterian Church. I first met Roger back in 1996, when he was 70 years old. His endless energy and enthusiasm, combined with his prayerfulness, was such a blessing to all who have worked in the Daystar U.S. Office. He was fearless in sharing the mission and requesting support. Dozens of students have had the opportunity for education at Daystar through Roger and Dottie’s ministry—they have an amazing legacy in Africa. He would always end a meeting with a prayer and as he was walking he would always say to me, "God bless you, buddy!" We will miss you Roger, though I am sure heaven has become much more lively with your arrival.


Our love and prayers are with his wife Dottie and the family.

In 1982, I went with World Vision to Northern Kenya. I returned to Kenya in 1986 and began to pray about serving overseas. God led Dottie and me to decide to devote the rest of our lives to the “two-thirds world.” After 32 glorious years we left CPC in 1988 when I was 62. We lived in Kenya for three years serving on the faculty of Daystar University in Nairobi and the next ten years leading mission safari trips to Kenya to raise funds for Daystar scholarships. I still raise scholarship funds for Daystar and ICM (International Christian Ministries). When your vocation is to witness for Jesus, there is no such thing as retirement. Praise God!
