In February: “Our ministry to the little ones”

Posted: March 1, 2014 by Dobr9k in Grozovo

IMG_2163We are glad that on February we had an opportunity to visit orphanages. Usually we didn’t visit children in winter because lots of them caught a cold. In our country February was the coldest and severe month. IMG_2512Sometimes even classes at school were cancelled because of this. But this year Jesus blessed us with a very worm winter. There’s no snow outside, and the weather is good. Schools weren’t closed this year, that’s why we could visit children in the orphanages.
IMG_2514   We talked about Joseph, a very good biblical character, and recalled the story of Cain and Abel. We talked about consequences of pride. The greatest example of which was the story of The Tower of Babel. One of our classes we dedicated to art. IMG_2552Together with children we molded salt dough crafts. Children were meant to make gifts for each other: girls had to make gifts for boys on Defender of the Fatherland Day, and boys had to make gifts for girls on the International Women’s Day. In spite of these holidays are not Christian, we decided to spend this time so that children could make something pleasant for each other. They did make the crafts with pleasure! In the nearest future the orphanage is going to be closed, and children are unlikely to meet up again. That’s why we are willing to do our best for their relationships.
