Jed and Chelsea have had their little six year old in the hospital for three days after she had a seizure. Lydia has led a life full of light. Her sixth birthday party she planned all the activities and made a story to share the need for Jesus with all her friends. Lydia is a big sister to a little girl named Maggie who is four. They will likely leave the hospital without Lydia, rejoicing she has gone to the Promised Land. As they transition to a new way of life as a family they will need support and we can help them practically by donating and lifting them up in prayer, sending cards and remembering the sweet life Lydia has led.

From Jed & Chelsea

"It is with deep grief we write this update. On May 1st our eldest little daughter Lydia Mae had a seizure. She was rushed to the nearest emergency room. It was a febrile seizure and we were certain that we would be home for dinner. Then, sudden brain swelling, a flight-for-life hospital move, dozens of test , millions of prayers all over the world, and 3 days later Lydia's brain continued to show no activity. She was pronounced brain dead and taken off life support at 1:01 A.M. on May 4th at Children's Hospital in Aurora. We still do not have answers on the root cause of this tragedy, other than that God is sovereign and he holds our lives in his hands."

We are so grateful for the all the gifts, food, prayers, and support we have already received. If you do wish give something we request in lieu of flowers, that you please make a donation in Lydia's name to Compassion International or Traylor Academy Denver. Lydia loved to write letters to our sponsor child at Compassion and she loved her school and everyone in it. Thank you for carrying on that legacy.

With deep sorrow,
Jed, Chelsea, and Maggie

Acts 16:14
“One of those listening was a woman from the city of Thyatira named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth. She was a worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to respond to Paul’s message. When she and the members of her household were baptized, she invited us to her home. “If you consider me a believer in the Lord,” she said, “come and stay at my house.” And she persuaded us.”

From Jed..."It looks like all our expenses will be covered by Samaritans and what we have in the go fund me. We are so thankful for the help. We feel it unnecessary to raise any more money to cover medical costs."

"If people want to donate in Lydia's name they can be directed to Compassion International or Traylor Academy Denver. "

This will not cover funeral expenses. Words cannot express the gratitude we have as close friends of the Williamson's for the outpouring of love and support you have given the Williamson's. Thank you so much. May the Lord bless you, and may you hide yourself in Christ who loves you and gave Himself up for you.

First, thank you! The love being poured out is tremendous. I also wanted to update that just this morning it was discovered that the medical bills from Lydia's hospital stay will be astronomically larger than we anticipated. If you would continue to share the page with your friends on Facebook it would mean a great deal. The more people praying for the family the better and Lord willing, helping cut down their cost to give them one less thing to stress over. Thank you again.

Please continue to hold Jed and Chelsea in your prayers. They still have decisions to make in regards to Lydia's funeral. They so appreciate all the love, care and prayers they are receiving, as well as the extended family.
