In May: ”Belinichy orphanage”

Posted: May 30, 2014 by Dobr9k in Belinichy

Greetings to you all!
DSC04392 School time is over. This year was quite diverse in activities. We had some difficulties, but the Lord blessed us through it all. Praise the Lord for everyone who’s been with us serving the orphans in our country!
This month we’ve taught children to be friendly. The life in the orphanage and kind of compition among kids often harden and make them very rude. Using an example of a good samaritain, we showed kids that whatever happens in our lives we should be always there for anyone who needs help. Children often ask us for some advice, so it shows that they trust us. One of the questions I’ve been recently asked is ” I’ve come to nowhere. How can I find the way out of this?” Also there were questions connected with parents and relationships with boys and DSC04397girls. We chose the topic so that it would point out that there is always a way for God, He knows how to deal with anything. We took Jahir from the Bible as an example to show them that God cares about people and there is nothing impossible for Him. The children are very dissapointed and discouraged that their parents left them and they think nobody cares for them. But the Bible tells us, that Jesus always cares about people and their problems. We discussed different ways from different situations and pointed out that suiside or any other extrems are not the way out and never will be. Jesus says – “Don’t be afraid, just trust Me”. We also told the kids that they shouldn’t give up, even if the whole world will stand against them.
DSC04601 Leaving the room, boys and girls were saying that they needed support drom friends and adults. They were so grateful that we come and encourage them. We understand that it is only by God’s grace that we can come and talk to them on any topics. It’s so easy to get into depression if you don’t know God! There are many fatal outcomes among teenagers in Belarus. We feel so sorry for young boys and girls who didn’t hear on time that there is hope in God!
We are planning to run a summer camp for children from Belynichie boarding school in June. The team is getting ready for it and the children are looking forward to going there. Organising a camp is a great opportunity to shows kids in practise what the Bible tells us about.
DSC04604 We believe that meanwhile it will bear fruits in the lives of children, and also mentors who are involved in running the camp. We know satan will try to atack us, to ruin our plans, to discourage us, so we are asking to keep praying for us and for this camp, which will be held 10 days beginning on the 9th June.

Brothers and sisters, we are so grateful that the Lord renews our strength and gives us hope! Our prayers are that God will also bless you and renew your strength every day and will give you hope in difficult circumstances. If you’d like to get in touch with us and find out how you can help us with this camp, please email us on
Thank you that you are with us!

In May: “Smilovichi orphanage”

Greetings dear readers!
DSC04249It brings us gratefulness and joy that you are care about orphans’ lives and our ministry to them.
DSCN3871 - копияWe are also grateful for people who help us to translate these articles. Our translation is not always great (we don’t have good consistent translator, so many people help with it). However, we want to say that our Lord is great whom we preach. He loves and cares about us and orphans, which is most important!
This month was not easy. DSC04269Nevertheless, we were able to share very important topics with children. We used their own examples to show the guilt and pay for sins, which they commit. They did not take their own sins. Jesus Christ was crucified, beaten up, and IMG_20140529_195258humiliated for their salvation. It was a wonderful lesson, which no one ignored. It was important even for those who taught the lesson!
This Thursday, we were planning to have another meeting with Muppet show, during which children would hear about Easter again.DSC04253 Unfortunately, for some unknown reason, we were asked not to come to the orphanage and we don’t know what will happen next. Either we will be allowed to come more or no visits to this orphanage anymore. We are asking you to pray about orphanage administration, children and their parents. Please ask for God’s mercy for us, our trips, and communication with the children to continue. Let God’s mercy and grace be with you, so you could work for His glory! As Paul said in 1st Corinthians 3:5-7 Как говорил Павел в 1-е Коринфянам 3:5-7 “I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow”
