Lydia's Prayer Map

Lydia was given a map of the world, along with little red dots, to show areas in the world where people are praying for her.  We thank you for your prayers.  We believe that prayer changes us, and changes situations.  prayers are heard by our loving, Heavenly Father.  A verse that has often accompanied our journey is Romans 12:12  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
We want to invite you to email your location to Lydia, and we will put it on her map.  Please put your town, province or state, and country in the subject line of the email.  We will not necessarily have time to open the emails we receive, so your help with this information in the subject, is appreciated. Thank you.

Lydia has been so tired lately!  This morning, she begam an hour long nap at 10:40!  School, and other cognitive tasks really exhaust her.  She is in school for about 45 minutes in both the morning, and afternoon.  She is working on addition and subtraction with single digit numbers.  She is also doing some reading, and does well with picture books, as she is a very visual learner.  She is developing some fine motor skills, for holding a pencil, and printing her name is improving.  Lydia has trouble figuring out if someone is talking to her, or generally asking a question.  Today, a student in her class queried, "how do you spell organization?"  Lydia said " o r g a n - and I don't remember the rest!"  The student was so delighted with Lydia's help, he said she could be his spelling hero anytime!  Lydia's smile matched his.  She enjoys helping others.
