In February: “Smilovichi orphanage”

Posted: March 6, 2013 by Dobr9k in Smilovichi

DSC00202There are specific memories that bring joy as well as pain. I want to share my thoughts about visit to Smilovishi orphanage! Each visit is particularly special and interesting; we remember them because we expect to see familiar people who are looking forward to meet us, they joyfully run up to meet us with sincere smiles. Only from time to time, it possible to notice someone with pensive look! DSC00225Children who have adult look always wait that people will betray or leave them, however they want to be loved and to be in embrace of natal person. Children dream about parents, however in their dreams parents are usually not drunk and they are not hungry.

DSC00276Smilovishi orphanage is not a wealthy establishment and it doesn’t have constant sponsor, that’s why we help them to meet their needs and bring textbooks and paint books for children. Recently we brought warm knitted socks. The children have started to fall ill and get flue. I had seen that children worn several pairs of thin socks and that’s why we decided to bring knitted winter socks for them. Children’s joy and supreme praise, and smiles makes us fall in love with them more and more.

DSC00285Behind statistics are hidden surnames, names and destinies, which we can change, and the adult world can change the formed tendency of social orphans. These children might have chance for their dream to come true because they have great desire to have real mom and dad. Sometimes it is hard to express all that heart and mind are filled with.

If you read my reflection, I want to ask you to join us in prayer for the children, and if you have an opportunity to come, we will be glad to be with you people who are used to restore the ruins of people lives.

In February: “Grozovo orphanage”

Hello to everybody, who’s reading this letter!

We want to share with you our achievements, DSC00239that we’ve had this February. In spite of the fact, that many children were ill and some orphanages were closed during the time of the treatment, from 10 to 15 children attended our meetings. We try to pray for the children’s health constantly, because they fall ill very often, especially in winter. God answers our prayers and shows His mercy not just to us, but to all the children. This month we discussed different topics. One of them was – “How to cope with the suffering from bereavement”. We spoke about the causes of losing something or someone in our life, about our reaction to it and the way we manage it. It was obvious that the children had strong feelings on this topic, because many of them havDSC08216e already faced such situations. There were different opinions and arguments whether it is good or bad to lose something or someone. Everyone had an opportunity to share his or her opinion. 153790103_298057497Also we told them, why we read the Bible and spoke a lot about it. We constantly share with them thoughts from this book, so many children were concerned, why the Bible is such an authority for us. The children were interested in knowing about the special purpose of the Bible and its influence on our lives. Besides, we always sing. Everyone enjoys this! Especially, when we learn something new. Songs melt the ice in their hearts, calm them and help to create friendly atmosphere. When we ask the children, why they come to our meetings, they say, they miss us, they want to know something new, they like the atmosphere, where everyone is valued and loved. It is pleasant to hear and, what is the most important, to see how they change. We are very grateful to everyone who supports us in prayers and kind words!!!
