In October: “Children’s ministry in Grozovo.”

Posted: October 29, 2012 by Dobr9k in Grozovo

I thank God for giving me the opportunity to serve Him through the kids and the grace I find in this relationship. Each day I get attached to the children more and more. This month we discussed with them different Biblical personalities. The kids enjoy the lessons and though they often mess around, we can feel that they are truly interested in what we have to say to them. They also love playing games with us and simply sharing a conversation. I love all the kids but there is special concern in my heart about one girl called Valyusha. She’s very special. She likes what we do and supports our effort by active participation and friendly attitude. I thank God for that girl and for the special regard He has given to me towards her. She has a special place in my heart and in my prayers.

In October: “Grozovo orphanage”

Hi, everybody!
I’d like to share with you on our October events. This month we have completed the lecture series “Jesus you didn’t know” where we wanted to present Jesus from different angles: as a carpenter, mentor, as the intercessor, the one who was born to advocate before His father on our behalf. The kids were all attention as they used to have another image of God in their mind. And now in this series of lectures they had a chance to get to know God as He is – unique in His love.
We also devoted a whole week to playing football. We split into several teams that competed either in 5-minute games or until there was a two-nil score. Such rules made the play a challenging and intensive one. In the process the kids learnt to understand and appreciate the true meaning of having a team spirit. It is not random players but a team united that wins the game. Sports events also helped us to get closer to each other and we had great fun, of course. It was an amazing gift of God when we could not only get a healthy physical exercise but also be there for our wards.
We also communicate via social networks where we can comment on each other’s posts. For example, there was a story when one guy didn’t know how to help his friend and I left a commentary that there is the One who has all answers and you should only ask Him for help. I don’t know whether the guy prayed at last or not but I know he heard me and saw an alternative choice on how to deal with problems in one’s life.

In October: “Rudensk orphanage”

This month was very happy and blessed for us! Serving Orphans in Rudensk boarding is not on the same place. If at the beginning of last month, we have experienced that most of the guys that we always kept in touch and were always coming to our meetings, have left school and gone to different cities, then today, our room is filled with more and more willing to hear about God. Now the new guys who previously ignored the communication with us come to us even . Glory to God!
In October, we have tried to diversify our program. We were two main themes: “Born to reconcile” and “True friendship.” At these meetings, it was suggested that Jesus was born in order to give people peace. We also talked about how it is important not only to look for a good and loyal friends, but also and most try to be a good friend to someone. One of the meetings we have dedicated to sports. We had the opportunity to organize a children’s sports team play, which very much unites us and the kids. Usually not all the kids want to participate in sports, so they were held personal communication, in which the boys just could share their experiences, triumphs, and ask questions. And, of course,on one of the meetings, we were divided into separate groups of boys and girls.
At a meeting with the girls, we were talking about what God has placed in them the beauty and femininity. We talked about how important it is to monitor the appearance, but more importantly, to develop the beauty of our heart. Boys were just talking about what real men should be strong and courageous. In addition, they must keep the commandments of God.
Thank God for this wonderful time!

On October 27, 2012, we are planning to hold an annual Christian conference dedicated to the service to orphans. The conference is called “You’re not alone”.

In September: ”Belinichy orphanage”

Posted: October 2, 2012 by Dobr9k in Belinichy

If we talk about our ministry in Belynichy boarding this month, it had its difficulties and wins! At this point, most of the kids who attended our communication are already out of the orphanage. They were distributed to study in different cities. Some were immediately sent to work after school. So now we have to go in contact with the new guys, and from the beginning to lay in their biblical basis. Now we try to get to know better the new guys to further invite them to our meetings and maintain contact with them. One of our meetings, we spent just acquaintance and personal contact with the children. At subsequent meetings, we have tried to show that what qualities God has and how its individual features we see in our lives. For some guys it was a completely new information, but also the boys, for whom this information was good repetition.
There was also a great opportunity to give the children clothes and shoes. It was a big help for them. Because not all of the guys there are good things and quality shoes for fall and winter. Therefore, we are especially grateful to those who helped to collect these things! And separately thank those involved in ministry to orphans prayerfully and financially!
