In November: ”Belinichy orphanage”

Posted: November 30, 2014 by Dobr9k in Belinichy

My name is Nastya B. Since I am responsible for the arts for kids, my major duty is to play educational games and doDSCF6817ing crafts with them. There were DSCF6845several times when I led arts classes for the children: we made some flowers with their names on, drew and did many other things which would influence them both physically and spiritually. In addition, the arts hours were followed by the classes where we looked at the examples of the biblical heroes; afterwards we had some class discussion, where kids could ask quesDSC05226tions. Further on, we had prayers in which everybody was a participant in the conversation with God. I was amazed by the children’s sincerity as they prayed just the way they could. However, the mostDSC05032 important thing is that regarding their age and diagnoses they could understand who they prayed to. Kids remember and understand many things in details, they live through them. Once we had a case; I had an operation on my hand and that is why I came to them with my hand in a bandage. They had paid attention to this, as it was something unusual to them. I was so surprised to discover they felt sorry for me and had big empathy for my health. Thus, I asked them to keep my hand in their chilDSC05260d prayers. In two weeks I visited not the older guys, but the younger ones again, with no bandage on this time though. I got even more surprised when many touched my hand and asked about my DSC05255health. I did not even expect them to remember about the hand! That is one more testimony for me that God is in work with them as they are filled with love and trust towards us.
In addition to this, there are classes for the older children; we sing, listen to good educational biblical stories and play different games. At one of the meetings we organized some sports events for the guys; estafettes which are bright memories now for the kids. I can see how hard that is for the older children since they grow up and have many questions in their minds, to which they cannot find the answers on their own most of the times. That’s why I understand how important that is to put the Word of God in them. The Satan fights for them and we need to help the children get a life with a sense in it. My prayer is about their hearts and the will of God for their further lives. Amen!
