In September: “Smilovichi orphanage”

DSC03078On the 12th, 19th and 26th of September, our team visited Smilovichi orphanage. Now there are 12 children: 5 boys and 7 girls. They are in 5 to 15 age range. At our first meeting, we met with the children, played fun games to get to know each other. The children tried to get to know and remember us. We did the same thiDSC03028ng. We dedicated our second meeting to get to know children much better. We had paper hearts, which every child could use to write what he/she likes and does not like, and tell about his/her dreams. Some of the children wrote something interesting. For example, one of the dreams: to love mother and father, a world in which there is no evil, and to get back to my parents and others. Because some kids do not know how to write, we helped them, so we can get closer to them and to know them. We finished our second meeting with the song “WavDSC03023e your hand to others.” Our dream: to use time, which God has given us, to become a part of their lives and to tell them about God. The third meeting was more devoted to the creativity and close personal conDSC03084tact with the children. While younger one were engaged in creative work, older children had personal conversation with our team members in a more intimate and personal atmosphere. We had a great opportunity to communicate with them in a quiet environment, to talk about their concerns and makes them happy, to get to know them, and give them a piece of our care and love! At the same time, the children had the opportunity to paint the plaster magnets and keep them as a souvenir.

    Thank you very much for the news! Yes, it takes time to build a friendship and you are on the right truck! Great idea to ask children to write their dreams this way you get to know them closer and perhaps you can address some of their dreams – like there is a world where there is no evil – The Kingdom of God.

    Большое спасибо за новсти! Да, заслужить себе доверие занимает много времени и вы все хорошо делаете для того чтобы стать друзьями детей. Замечательная идея попросить детей записать их мечты, таким образом вы узнаете детей ближе и возможно можете что то сказать по поводу их мечты. Например, существует мир в котором нету зла – это Царствие Небесное.
