In September: “Grozovo orphanage”

Posted: September 27, 2013 by Dobr9k in Grozovo

-Sasha, look how fast I can run, – bragged a young boy named Nikita before the new member of ourNpXHzFkwMYI team and ran away disappearing behind a corner. He is running so much to and from, from nowhere to nowhere. I do not know why he runs so much but it seems that there is no any better occupation for this boy. Because it is the only way not to think about his own life – the life one wants to forget about. All other orphans in the same way take “paints” and paint the day in their own “bright colors” – the most important thing is not to think about own life. Of course, who wants to think about the fact that nobody wants them?
My impression is that even when we say to orphans that they are dear to us, that we love them kcGoAcCbKGIand want to help them, they still do not believe us. They do not know how to behave with us, with a person with whom they do not need to defend themselves, the one who says to them that they are precious. Thus when we communicate with orphans we have to deal with their double personality, one is public and the other is private.
The whole September we dedicated to personal communication with kids. To tell the truth I did not even expect that the kids would be so happy to see us after long summer hoWRsvOQku66clidays. During September we wanted to become closer to the children, to become their older friends who they can ask for an advice during hard times. We wanted to show them God.
It was sad not to see some of the boys and girls who graduated from the orphanage. They stepped out into the sea of life to look for their own harbour. It is sad because I did not have enough time to say everything that I wanted to say to each one of them, that I did not have enough time to befriend each one of them. But I am glad that some of them are going to live in Minsk – we will have an opportunity to meet them.
In the orphanage I got closer to a girl named Vika (the aTH6SY71qJ0author is a girl too). I like her understanding of life. She knows what she wants and she works hard to get there. I want very much that our relationship grow stronger. But simple fellowship and helping them is not enough and it is not the primary goal of our team. I really, really want for Holy Spirit to use us here so we would be able to communicate to orphans the real truth, that they do not need to run from nowhere to nowhere, that they can stop and realize that with their limited hands they can hug Unlimited God and know and feel that they have been adopted by Him!

    Well said! Good observations! It is great to know that the children missed you so much because of summer holidays and were so happy to see you! They are starting to love you 🙂 so I hope they will start to become open to you.

    Хорошо сказано! Хорошие наблюдения! Приятно услышать, что дети так сильно по вас соскучились за время летних каникул и были так рады вас увидеть! Они начинают вас любить и я надеюсь что они начнут быть более открытыми к вам.
