In June: “Smilovichi orphanage”

Posted: July 12, 2015 by Dobr9k in Smilovichi

This month ministry in Smilovichy was special. All the orphans were taken to the families for summer,IMG_9035 some of them though were taken to the orphanage on the first week. That’s why we had only two boys at the orphanage in Smilovichy: IMG_9044Egor is about 3, Arseny is 6. First, we worried the kids are of different age groups and that there are only 2 of them. But then God reminded us of the fact that each person is worth of dedicating time to and is valuable in God’s eyes. And this is awesome. All the meetings resulted great and joyful, there was a lot of time to spend with those 2 boys. They were extremely happy to see us coming to visit them even though there were only 2 of them. IMG_9039They really appreciated it. We had Bible classes where boys could get to know some Bible stories: The prodigal son, Good Samaritan, Parable of the rich man and Lazarus. SAM_0041We also watched cartoons together and this is a very good way to demonstrate things and to convey the Biblical message to the kids. As we were blessed with a nice weather we were able to spend more time outside. Egor is a very active kid, we played sport games with him and Arseny enjoyed painting on the pavement with the chalk of different colors. This is how God blessed our ministry this month with these 2 boys.

Now Egor is sent to the foster family and the decision about Arseny has not been made yet. Our team is looking forward to returning to visit the orphanage in Smilovichy in September as the kids are at state camps for the summer.
