Happy New Year

2014 was pretty crazy. I look back over my journals and blog posts from 2014 and realize how very gracious God is. 2014 was hard. 2014 was good. 2014 was a year of God being so faithful and His strength overcoming my weakness.

I am thankful for 2014. I grew in 2014. God sustained in 2014.

I saw some of my prayers that I wrote on New Years last year…

*Grow deeper and stronger in my walk with God. -WOW! God is amazing. He has pulled me ever closer to Him and I pray that this next year would be an even greater year of seeing His glory.

*Be bold to share my testimony and the gospel- God provided opportunity after opportunity to share the gospel with the kids at Casa, the tias, the staff, the pizza man… it was truly amazing. We can't keep silent!

*Love till it hurts- This surprised me looking back. I forgot I wrote this. And this happened. I love the kids at Casa so much and seeing them struggle hurts. Seeing little ones leave back with their mothers into difficult situations hurts. Watching babies abandoned hurts. But seeing God's love for them heals. I can't fix their hearts. I can't fix their lives. But I can love them one by one for as much time as I'm given.

*Laugh and see the joy in each day!- This was a hard year but also a joyful year. Living with so many happy kids is definitely contagious and I love smiling.

So blessed by all the love and support and encouragement I have received from you all! It has been such a blessing and I couldn't do this without you all!!!

In 2 weeks I head back to Bolivia. What an amazing journey it has been the last 3 years and I cannot wait to see where God leads me and to see Him continue to work in my own heart and the lives of the children I love so much.

God is good. All the time!!!

Blessings in this new year,

Lily Fluharty
