In March: “Rudensk orphanage”

DSC03784Every image given in the Bible is an example through which God wants to teach us something. Reading the story of Deborah again and again, I saw her passionate desire to fulfil God’s will, to be obedient in everything no matter how hard it would be. And as a result the Lord changed the life of the whole nation. DSC03827That’s impressive! We pray and dream about Belarus without orphans, the country where every child has his father and mother. We pray that kids’ lives will be changed by the power of the Holy Spirit.
The beginning of spring in Rudensk was very active for us. The children took part in sport activities. Everyone wanted to win. So we noticed that some kids were happy and some were disappointed when they lost. DSC03853But it turned out to be an opportunity to tell them what we should do when we lose or meet any difficulties in life.
DSC03787 As we expected, there were more meetings for the girls and boys in Rudensk. We were talking with the girls about love and being in love and the difference between it. We also discussed how they should behave when they are on dates. There was one meeting called “Diets”. Together we tried to find out how to choose a healthy diet that won’t do any harm to the girls.
At the same time the boys have been taught how to manage their money and how to take life seriously. DSC03875There was a meeting for the boys where we talked about shaving. For many of them it was a little bit embarrassing. But we try not only to teach them moral values, but also to give them some practical advice for their life. Unfortunately, orphans don’t know the usual things that are ordinary for the children in families.
DSC03883We had a meeting called “Life without boundaries” where we showed the video about Nick Vujicic, a man without arms and legs, but full of love to God. Kids could see the difficulties Nick had to go through, so that now he could speak with people telling them that they are beautiful and loved by God.
We tried our best to show children that we are not able to change our past, but we can change our future.

In March: “Grozovo orphanage”

7XpHhVDTuMIHello my friends! We glad to have such an early spring here! As a result we have some changes in our lives and ministry. With the arrival of spring everybody goes outdoors to walk, to fish, to exercise at stadiums and our guys are not the exceptions.DSC03744 The problem is that our friends stopped coming to our lessons because they wanted to spend their time outdoors. To tell the truth, they wanted to be with us and to communicate but a long-awaited spring has won.
DSC03763 So we consulted about it and decided to go to their territory and communicate individually with them in the places they wanted to be. Such conditions helped us to gain confidence of children and it opened their hearts for our words about Jesus. We raised such topics as “why do we go to church?”, “why do we read the Bible?”, DSC03770“Life is not a game – we should have a serious attitude to it” and talked about many different questions. RUuwcEWqP1MGuys spoke actively and we were happy that they are not indifferent. This is the right time when we can build the basis of the Christian life in their minds hoping them to use this knowledge outside the orphanage. Especially it applies to graduates as they have to make a step into their own independent lives soon. We pray for our graduates to have enough efforts and confidence and also to be blessed by God in their choice concerning education and their future profession. We thank you for your support and ask you to join us in our prayers for graduates of the orphanages.
