This is Lauren. She has been working at CCCD as a "short-termer" for the past 10 weeks. From the first time Truitt met Lauren, he has called her "best friend." For the longest time, he didnt even know her name and would only refer to her as "best friend." If he heard her voice outside or the door open to her apartment, his eyes would light up and say, "that is my best friend." We still dont know why he started calling her "best friend" from the moment they met, but maybe it was prophetic. They became good friends. Actually, she became a good friend to all of us. She has been a friend to us and has served our family in different ways. Her primary role at CCCD was working with several of our special needs students. She served by giving them focused attention and special time outside the classroom. Lauren is flying home today and she will be missed. Please say a prayer with us for her safe travels and "re-entry" back into life in America. We thank God for her service here and pray that He will bless her journey.
