In November:”Belinichy orphanage”

DSC08596What do children face with every day? How do they spend this day? What hopes and dreams have these children?
“You are a loser” – constantly spreads through orphanages, which we visit! But in contrast to this, our team is constantly talking to children about the pursuit of goals and the ways to achieve them and about the fact that “God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong”! I once spoke with a teenager from Belynichi orphanage. His name is Arthur. From a conversation wiDSC08889th him, I realized that the label “loser” stick very often to him. “What’s next, Dima? I think I really can’t do anything special in my life. After all, we were told so many times that we cannot achieve anything, and even our educational program, is not like in a regular school. “With these questions, we are facing more and more.
Ruined values lead us to despair, and those who must inspire and give sometimes, just destroy it, as in the example of Arthur. But Arthur is not alone in his problem. Pretty much every time, we hear such statements from other boys and the girls. MoreoveDSC08930r, children very often consider themselves useless and worthless. The adult world, unfortunately, does not accept children with peculiarities!
This month we have had several meetings with the children from the orphanage in Belynichi. We tried to make emphasis on the love and acceptance of God. Because God loves man, and especially children! On the example of the last lesson, when talked about the life of heroes of the faith, like Joseph and Moses, we demonstrated that whatever happens in one’s life, God had everything under control. In spite of all the circumstances that just crush you, God is near and He does care about what happens to you. An eDSC08906xample of biblical heroes showed that due to their obedience and fear of God, He particularly took care of them. And in this country, if we are obedient and have the fear of God, our lives will be transformed and changed completely. Difficulties remain, but through these difficulties will have comfort, because now we have hope. The hope is that God is near and that he is able to support when it is most needed.
Advent is coming – it’s time of waiting of Christ’s birth and asserting that the Christ is alive to this very day. It can help everyone who needs it. Every kid dreams to leave orphanage as soon as possible. They dream that the words they constantly heard DSC08931as a curse would never be spoken to them again. After leaving the orphanages they enter the adult life for which, as many years’ experience shows, not everyone is reedy. But there are also examples of guys who after graduation have chosen the right path, and their lives changed. Now they are successful people (as they say), because their heart belongs to God. They go to church and do ministry.
Dear friends, let us pray that the children who are in orphanages, acquire saving faith and hope. And also let’s pray for those who have accepted Christ into their heart and so that sown seed brought forth fruit in his time to the glory of God!

    You are doing a great job, guys!
    A looooot of mistakes though! You’d better find another translator! Or ask your current translator to study English more diligently!
    Thanks God for your job anyway!
