Posted: April 1, 2016 by Dobr9k in Smilovichi

We have just finished our first month. At the beginning of the month it was cold and gray outside, fZf7zHj-ruwHowever, Spring finally made an appearance. The weather turned from cold and gray to warm and sunny. Our children are doing very well. The appearance of spring has brought joy to the children’s hearts. This joy has made our meetings with the children even more joyous. In March we had the opportunity to work with 14 children of various ages. Due to the variety of ages we had to teach our Bible lessons in such a way to engage all of the children. We introduced the children to the Bible stories about the 10 lepers, and the rich man named Lazarus. We also had the opportunity to talk to the children about how GIMG_4800od always fulfills His promises. March 8th was International Women’s Day. Due to this we had a special celebratory meeting in which we made cards for the children’s moms and grandmas to whom they dream of returning to! I so hope that their parent’s hearts change. I pray that as a result the children will be able tosd4mX6P2J-Q return to a healthy and happy family. I also pray that the cards the children made would find their way to loving and caring grandmothers and mothers. At the second craft lesson the children made paper toys, this allows them to show their talent and exercise their imagination. We also had the opportunity to talk to the children dH19E04u2sYabout friendship. This topic is very relevant for the children of the shelter. Because, they are all only there temporarily. Often they either do not have enough time to build friendships or they make great friends that they quickly have to say goodbye to.

We have been teaching the children to pray and to bring their needs before the Lord. One boy has been praying very passionately to God. Begging God to return him home. The boy has such an open and sincere heart.0_8a6c4_c13c3ca1_M His faith is so sincere; he truly believes that he will be going home soon. The Lord heard the boy’s prayers. Two weeks later he returned home. This brought so much joy to both the boy and us. This was such an amazing example to the other children about how God always hears them and is with them.
