In November: “Rudensk orphanage”

Posted: December 21, 2014 by Dobr9k in Rudensk

This month we had the opportunities to visit the children at Rudensk orphanage-school again. DSC04974We glorify God for that and are thankful to all those who participate in this together with us (both financially and in prayers)
20141105_194148This time we touched upon actual topics for the children: happiness and dreams. The actuality was evoked by the fact that the children in the orphanage grow up without parents, without proper love, without a good example of right relations in the family. So, in the majority of cases, these children don’t have any guidelines how it is right to build a happy life. Undoubtedly, each of these young people dreams of a good and happy family, of achieving something in life. But the reality is that many people whom they encounter (peers, mentors, teachers), just put an end to their future lives outside the orphanage, to their dreams of a happy life. DSC04998That’s the reason why these two topics are closely connected.
During communication with the children at our meetings, we were telling them that every person has a missing God-sized ‘puzzle’. And when people try to put other pieces into this ‘puzzle’ using something in what they seek happiness (alcohol, girlfriends or boyfriends, much money) – they will not feel happier. DSC05250We showed it using the example of David. Although he was a king and had huge wealth, he found real happiness only in God and in close relationships with Him. This is why Daved was called ‘a man after God’s heart’.
We were also talking that to dream of a nice house, a car, a good job and decent pay is not bad! DSC05016And God is not against to bless them in every possible way in their earthy life. Above all their dreams shouldn’t be more important than Christ and relationships with Him.
We finished our meetings with the words from the Gospel of Matthew ‘But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well’
It was nice to see that these themes touched the children when they came and thanked us. It was also nice to see enthusiasm in their eyes because their dreams were accepted, but not mocked at and crushed. Now these children know and believe that they have hope of a happy life.
