In June: “Rudensk orphanage”

Posted: July 3, 2014 by Dobr9k in Rudensk

DSC04636We had 2 final trips to Rudensk orphanage in June. Earlier we’ve told that children there were very open to any meetings with us. But most of all they liked our stag-parties and hen-parties when boys and girls gathered separately. That’s why we decided to arrange one of our meetings in such a way. The topic for girls and boys was the same: “Social networks. The influence of the Internet. The Internet is an addiction”. DSC04653This topic was of current importance for graduates. The reason is that while children are in their orphanage, they are taken care for, they are busy with their studies and other activities, and as the result they don’t waste their time in the Internet. But when they graduate from their schools they leave for other cities in order to either get another education or to enter a job. DSC04658As a rule, they start feeling there absolutely free and independent. More often children don’t know how to use money, how to make friends and this makes them be wasted in the Internet. We tried to warn children against any addictions, showing what God thinks about these addictions. In the Scriptures it’s said: “Everything is permissible for me – but not everything is beneficial; everything is permissible for me – but I will not be mastered by anything”. (1 Corinthians 6:12)

DSC04307Our second meeting was the last in this season. The graduates left for different cities either to study or to work. Those who are still in the orphanage were also sent to different cities for summer. Some of them left for Italy. The last meeting was held in a free format. Some of us focused on face-to-face communication with children, others played sports games with them. We were sad to part with the graduates, but we hope that we’ll be in touch with them and we also hope that God’s Word that they heard won’t be in vain.

Thank you all, who were with us during this year! May God bless you!
