The Andersons were our pastors for the first l1 years we were married; Bro. Anderson dedicated our two daughters, and both prayed with us through Kristen's two bouts with meningitis, and I taught my first two years at Muse Memorial Christian School. During that time was when Jesse Winley held a six-week revival. God did some great things while we were at Muse. The Andersons also were a great support to us when my Mom had multiple surgeries at Bone & Joint, and visited my Dad when he had surgery in OKC, also. They were the 'ultimate' pastors to us. Later, when they moved to Hot Springs, we visited them twice (even went to Cowboy church with them). We are in a long list of people that have been influenced by this Godly couple.
You may have already heard, but wanted to let you know that Bette Anderson passed away last night in Arkansas. I believe she had fallen recently and had developed complications from that fall. Don't know any details yet. There is some info on BILL AND BETTE ANDERSON facebook page. They were our pastors for about 20 years. We loved them so much.
I, too, attended Muse Memorial Church during the years that the Andersons pastored. I agree that he was one of the best pastors I have known. They were very attentive and everyone was like family. I enjoyed the worship and the fellowship there. Bette was truly a sweet person, always the same, and very devoted to ministry.
