In November: “Smilovichi orphanage”

11514853All praise to God for each new day and for this new month we had! This month as usually we were able to visit the orphans in Smilovichy. The orphans are constantly changing there. But each time we come to visit them, we meet new orphans there who got there recently and they are open and they trust us from the very first day they met us. They tell us the story of how they got into the orphanage, how they sIMG_3958tudy there, tell about their new friends they made in the orphanage and they also complain about those who treat them bad. image-052662e5191fd11b68144bab3ecec698f438df4a7f5ec439fe3d180cc50f1f65-VAnyway, they try to be friendly to each other even though it can be difficult sometimes.
Every time we come to the orphanage our hearts are full of joy as we see these kids, their love to us and as we see how they wait to see us. This month we continued introducing orphans with some new Bible stories of the New Testament. Kids are already familiar with such Bible stories as “Jesus healing a woman who had suffered from her disease for 12 years”, “Jesus raising a dead Jairus’s daughter”,
“Jesus having fed 5000 people“, “the Good Samaritan”.
At the end of each lesson we asked questions and we were glad to see how enthusiastic the orphans were to answer them correimage-22ef2343b763623b42f42795a857b8492c79126810effcc48a644f5d904578cc-Vctly, to do tasks, to play together with us. One of our lessons was dedicated to crafts. IMG_3961We called it “Each orphan has a talent”. And indeed, every kid is talented and a lesson in crafts gives a good chance to reveal these talents and develop them. Kids could decorate glasses for pencils and use them later for their school needs. Sasha, Alina, Diana were with us for the last time. Their parents were able to finish the repair works in the house, to pay debts for utilities and the social work supervisors allowed kids back home. So, Sasha and Alina were returned back to their family and Diana to her family. It was a good example and a reminder of God’s faithfulness to answer the prayers of orphans. At the end of our lessons kids said prayers together with us. IMG_3953The most common prayers were about asking for good health and coming back to their families. We praise IMG_3964God that He knows our needs and the three orphans have been brought back home. Let’s hope the seed that was sewed in their hearts will bear fruit one day.
Now there are 2 more orphans left in the orphanage – Artyom and Nikita. Nikita is very young, he doesn’t go to school yet. He needs some prayer support and it’s difficult for him to get used to the orphanage as he often gets ill. Artyom is very open, cheerful and obedient. He keeps on praying and asking God to come back home as soon as possible. He’s looking forward to court decision on his case to know if he could be returned back to the family.

    Слава Богу, что Саша, Алина и Диана возвращаются домой! Бог ответил на их молитвы – родители стали отвественно относиться к своим детям – к тем условиям в которых они живут – они отремонтировали дом и заплатили за коммунальные услуги, чтобы дети не мучались – Слава Богу! Дети возвращаются домой с самым ценным даром, который они могли получить – знанием Истины – их Небесного Отца и Спасителя! Который всегда может прийти им и их родетелям на помощь, если они будут Ему послушны и захотят впустить Его в свое сердце.
    Молюсь о Никите, чтобы Бог ему дал крепкое здоровье.
    Слава Богу за ваш труд – за то что вы несете детям и их родителям Свет Истины, чтобы освободить их из царства тьмы и оков греха!
