In November: “Rudensk orphanage”

Posted: November 27, 2013 by Dobr9k in Rudensk

Greetings, everyone! We got through yet another month of our serving in Rudensk orphanage. That monthIMG_6836 was full on various events.
We were covering a “Loneliness” topic at the beginning of the month. It is so easy tDSC03359o feel lonely and unwanted among the people, where even among the crowd the one can feel abandoned and without any real friends. We were talking that even if people didn’t have a place for one in their hearts, he was always in the heart of the Lord. We told those children how important they were to God.
We had contests on the following week. We normally don’t have a lot of time to talk with everybody personally, despite the fact that they are looking forward to it; so, we make various contesIMG_7013ts in order to make our communication more productive. We are trying tIMG_6999o fill out their need for communication this way. Besides, during these contests children could see our team, our behavior and reaction in critical situations, in stress, and in losing situations. Our Lord loves us, and we showed this love to the children. These contests helped us to express through actions what’s inside us and our faith in Him. These orphans saw not just mere words, but actions.
We also had all-boys and all-girls meetings this month. The hot topic in the boy’s group was communicating with girls, where DSC03386placing your partner over yourself was a key to success. We also talked about practical expressDSC03377ions of love and caring. Our all-girls group had a chat with professional make-up designer, who taught them to take care of their face beauty and make a good quality make-up.
We also started advents, the series of meetings before Christmas. We were talking about the contribution and sharing of Jesus through his birth. And the word “peace” was the first one brought up. We talked that we got a chance to live in peace, if we follow Jesus Christ.
Thank you very much for all of your support! Thank you everyone who keeps an orphan problem close to their heart!
