For the past year and two months, my family and I have had the honor and privilege to serve the Lord at Chapel By The Sea Baptist Church in North Myrtle Beach, SC. While working with the youth as their youth pastor; there were wonderful relationships established that will always remain on our hearts and minds.
Our desire was certainly to reach, teach, train, and send them into their community and school as young missionaries; but I must say that they taught me as much if not more about the ministry of the gospel. I want to publicly say that I love Hunter, Jonny, Maria, Aaliya, Jacob, Ashlyn, Ariel, Ashton, Geoffrey, Leo, Joshua, Logan, Makayla, Baxley, Tylee, Phaythe, Bayleigh, and Taylor. You guys were my faithful friends and taught me to love people in spite of their faults as you loved me in spite of mine. Thank you.
The next chapter in the Underwood’s lives will be in Covington, GA. Ashlee, Peyton and I are excited about what God is doing in our lives! There are certainly great opportunities ahead for us, and we covet your prayers.
Please pray that the Lord will continue to bless our family and the ministry to which he has called us. We carry with us the desire to reach, teach, train, and send others into all the world with the gospel of Christ, for we know that it is the power of God unto salvation!
I thank God for the opportunity to serve over the past year, and now am expecting Him to use us in an even greater way for the advancement of the Kingdom!
Sounds exciting. We’ll be praying for you guys. Take care.
