Lauren Update

Lauren has been home since Friday. It’s been really crazy, we are sill trying to get moved into the apt and everything. We have had nurses and other people in and out every day. Lauren went to her speech appointment today and they changed her trach to a 3.5mm and they put on her speaking valve and she cried. It’s the first time anyone has heard her in quite some time. It made Beck cry, the nurse who was traveling with her cry, and everyone else too. I was at work so I could not be there. If I was… then yes, I would have cried also.

Speaking of work, I am now the Student Pastor at Farrington Road Baptist Church here in Durham… well, I guess the church is really in Chapel Hill. Either way, it’s North Carolina. I’m still getting moved into my office, I had to take a break today due to a horrible migraine headache but I was able to make it back to church to teach the youth this evening. We had 9 there tonight and I felt good about it. I think God has called us here as he did when he called us to Williston.

I want to encourage the students and adults here in NC to pray for those in SC and vise versa as each group is facing changes in their local ministries. We should continue to lift each other up to God.

  7. Hey Beck and Dan, We miss you three so much. I went to Dr. Smith’s last week and they all were interested to see if I knew anything from you. I told them the website is the latest for all of us.
