Posted: April 1, 2016 by Dobr9k in Belinichy

In March we have started visiting our kids again after a whole month of quarantine in the IMG_4963 orphanage. Because of a long period of our absence, the kids were very glad to see us again, and they have been preparing to our meeting. Especially the youngest ones. It was very pleasant to see their happy faces as they were running towards us with the words “Mom, I’ve beIMG_4553en missing you so much!” and hugging us tight afterwards.

Even their housemistress shared her notice of how the kids were missing and getting ready for the meeting. The children were playing games extremely actively and were doing it with great pleasure. They were very attentive while listening to the story about Lazarus and the rich man. At the end of our lessons we always try to image-3858278eba898b495c09a6a20ba1f96a536a57097b5f17e20a1e7d40ebefbe05-Vpresent the kids with some colouring pictures according to the discussed topic in order to help them memorize it and give them a visual example. I was very surprised to see that the children save all these colouring pictures with which they were working during the lessons in separate folds and that they do the colouring itself more seriously. One can see that this is importaIMG_4959nt for them.

We also watched the cartoon “God-Man”. The kids reacted in different ways and all of them were impressed by it very much. While watching they were asking a lot of questions, empathized the plot and were very active during the discussion afterwards.

For the elder children there were also discussions on the topics “Alcohol” and “ IMG_4916Hypocrisy”. Dima told about what influence the alcohol brings on the human’s organism, that there is a danger of addiction and a lot of harm for a man. Zheniya talked about hypocrisy. Hypocrisy is a sin of duplicity. The hypocrisy is based upon lie, and the father of lie is the devil. The life of a hypocrite cannot be a life in God, his life is always controlled by_0__8 the evil inclination. “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined” (Matthew 12:25). A hypocritical, double-hearted person lives two lives at once. One of them can be seen by others, and the other one is internal and hidden.
