In December: “Smilovichi orphanage”

Posted: December 30, 2015 by Dobr9k in Smilovichi

vetkaOur ministry at Smilovichi orphanage goes on, in spite of the new administration at the IMG_4220orphanage. Thanks God, He makes people’s hearts favorable to us! We are also grateful for those who support our ministry financially! This month we were able to help them IMG_4338bringing the things for washing and cleaning.
At the moment there came eight children more. The children got acquainted with new biblical stories such as ‘The parable about the lost sheep’ and ‘the prayer of a Pharisee and a tax collector in the temple’. The first story is a good example of God’s care for each person. The second one teaches that God accepts us as we are, if we admit our fault before Him and ask to forgive our sins. The children participaIMG_4011ted quite actively in the biblical lessons and answered the questions. For there are mostly small children at the IMG_4311orphanage now, we learnt new song songs with motions and prepared for celebrating Christmas. At one of the meetings we could demonstrate the kids a Christian cartoon and then we discussed its sense and morals, thus cultivating in them good values. Also, according to our good tradition we had crafts where both boys and girls took a very active part in this. Moreover, we noticed that due to crafts the children become more attentive andIMG_4014 diligent.
We are very glad IMG_4208when some of the children want to pray. Alina prays to the Lord most often and her main wish is returning to her mother.
We finished up December in a cheerful way! We invited a puppet theatre and they told us a bright Christmas story. At the end the children got their long-expected gifts! Glory to God for this evening because it was a great pleasure for us to see their happy eyes!
