Lidia, Hands of Love Director in Bolivia, is a gifted and educated woman who is using her talents for the Lord. She is a teacher by trade and continues to teach adult education at night. Lidia has always had a sense of what the needs of the children are and makes such a difference in their lives. Many a time she has spent one-on-one time with them helping them with homework or work through a problem they are having. She even went to school with one of the adolescents that has special needs. This child was older than most of the young people in his class and being teased. He was very uncomfortable and didn’t want to go to school. Lidia accompanied him to class and helped him work through his work so he could get caught up. This enabled him to go to school at night with the adults so he wasn’t feeling so uneasy. We are grateful for this woman God has placed in leadership.
