In April: “Smilovichi orphanage”

Posted: May 14, 2015 by Dobr9k in Smilovichi

One more spring month flew away! The weather didn’t give us many sunny days and much spring IMG_8056fragrance. But we were noticing God’s hand even in this, for usually spring is a period of time when children don’t want to stay indoors and try to run outside. It is the hardest part of the year if we are speaking about gathering childreIMG_8213n together. That’s why we want to thank God for any weather and the opportunities to bring all the children together and help them know God closer.
This month we were looking at our God’s features and were taking a many-colored block as an example. Each color meant one of the features of God. For instance, the red one told us that God was love and IMG_8100the green one that God was the Creator. Besides, we celebrated Easter in April! It was a wonderful opportunity to tell the children about God’s love towards people and about the great sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Unfortunately, the children are mostly from the faIMG_8252milies where people just color eggs and bake sweet cakes, but they’ve never heard of the true meaning of this holiday. So, we had a good possibility to share with them the biblical understanding of Easter.
Last month we informed you that the children in Smilovichi orphanage are keen on crafts. So, we organized one more meeting devoted to crafts according to our new tradition. This meeting showed us again that all the children differ from each other but all of them are talented. Glory to for this month!
