In April: Rudensk orphanage

Posted: April 30, 2012 by Dobr9k in Rudensk

     In April, as usual, we visited Rudensk every Tuesday. We watched the film “Save the Life” several times and held a sports competition. We also celebrated Easter during one of our visits.
The children liked the film as it tackles issues that are most important for them such as bullying, outcasts, losers. Some of the children managed to draw the right conclusions and that gave us hope.
Children are always eager to play sports. That’s why they enjoyed the sports competition greatly. They got fountains of emotions.
We also had a good Easter party. The children learnt about the holiday’s origin, about the Resurrection. At the end of the meeting we posed questions to the children and they surprised us with their answers in a good way. For example, they managed to name all the Egyptian curses. Some children were interested to continue the discussion. It was obvious that God has started His work in their hearts. Praise the Lord!
Some children behave wildly in the orphanage, I have to admit that. They always mess with each other, get into fights, smoke and drink alcohol. There are “aces” and there are unpopular children who become scapegoats. When you see this your heart is bleeding. The children who are bullied don’t get a lot of support and I wish so much to share with them the good news about their best Protector.
The orphanage life makes the children believe that they are destined for failure. And what is worse they adopt this vision. It is my ardent desire to break those prejudices. I wish that God touches the hearts of those children so that they could understand they have a great and strong Patron above.
