    Will never forget such a great man of God. I became an Evangelist under his teaching. Lift your heads even in these trying times. Remember to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. You will always be in my prayers. Evangelist Gerldine Young. 1380 Trask Parkway Seabrook,SC 29940

    So very sorry for your loss. The bible is certainly a true source of comfort during hard times such as these. Revelation 21:4 says that God will wipe every tear from our eyes and death and pain will be no more.

    Elder Bynes, whom I affectionately called, "Uncle Lee" was the epitome of a man of GOD who loved doing his work by loving the unloved, and spreading the Good News of GOD's plan of Salvation. He told me that I had an "open door invitation" at Bibleway" and I'm forever honored, and blessed. To Aunt Pearl, daughters and sons; sisters, and neither, along with the large Bynes and Sanders families, and everyone who loved Elder Bynes I extend my sincere condolences.
