Three Years at Lakeside

This past Sunday we celebrated three years at Lakeside Baptist Church! A lot has happened in three years.
Around three and a half years ago, Lee surrender to the youth ministry. We were nervous and anxious about what was laying ahead for us, but very excited! We had the opportunity to take a church very close to where we were living at the time, VERY close! It just made "logical" sense. As we further pursued the logical, Lee continued to receive phone calls from a pastor of a church called Lakeside. The thing is, God's plan isn't always "logical" to us. :) After meeting with Bro. Scott Hill from Lakeside Baptist Church, we both felt peace and we knew without a doubt that Lakeside was where God wanted the Wood's to be.
Since then, Lakeside has become our family. To look back and see how God has led and is moving among His people is awe-inspiring! We love the youth ministry. Lee and I have such a passion to see young people come to know the Lord and then learn to walk with Him, and to see them get passionate about their relationship with Him! It's exciting! We have the best youth group EVER!! Even the students who have left to go to college, are still so very dear to us and are considered lifetime youth members! :) We are so blessed and humbled that the Lord would choose to use us to minister to others! To God be all honor and glory and praise!
Last Sunday, they threw us a surprise 3rd anniversary party! It was so great! Again He didn't have to bless us with such amazing friends and support systems here, but He did and we are forever grateful! We love you all! Thank you for the encouragement and love that you show our family!
(They meant to put Lee's name first, but the bakery made a mistake! OOPS!) :D
