In April: “Rudensk orphanage”

Posted: May 5, 2015 by Dobr9k in Rudensk

This month we continued to minister to the orphans of the Rudensk orphanage
IMG_7998In April together with children we have celebrated the wonderful Holiday of Easter. And we have celebrated it in a very unusual way. IMG_8031Because the roots of the Easter go to the history of the Jewish nation, we have invited a Jew so he would show and explain the origins of Easter and what does it mean for the whole mankind.
At another meeting we spoke on the subject of betrayal. Nobody loves when he is betrayed therefore the subject was very current. IMG_8297At this lesson we helped children to look at themselves and to try to remember how often they have betrayed other people.IMG_8489
Yet at the other meeting we talked on the subject of success. Every person is worried about what is going to happen to him in the future. Are they going to be winners or losers in this life? Are they going to succeed in this life or are they going to have nothing. We have discussed who is “an agile person” from the book of Proverbs and how many times you have to lose to become a winner.
Helpful lessons are not the only activity that we do, we also play games with children and it is a fun way to help them develop physically. IMG_8533Carrying water in a spoon to a glass, cutting balloons with closed eyes and building giant letters from their own team –IMG_8121 these are just a few examples of fun games we play with kids. Through these games they learn to trust each other, to be united in a team, sometimes they learn to loose but at the same time to never lose hope.
At the last meeting we told children that they have to serve each other. On the example of the story of the Good Samaritan we have discussed what compassion is.
We also had an opportunity to give children a little bit of clothing. We thank those who provided the clothing!
We are glad that we have an opportunity to minister in Rudensk orphanage!
