In April: ”Belinichy orphanage”

Posted: April 30, 2016 by Dobr9k in Belinichy

We’ve got big changes and good results in our ministry – this is how I can describe our trips to Belinichy orphanage this April. IMG_5064We thank God for answering our prayers! We wish everyone who is reading this letter would have a chance to visit the orphans from Belinichy. The photos we take can’t fully reflect the atmosphere that we have at the orphanage when we come there.IMG_5155
Every Monday we pray God would do changes in the hearts of the kids, pray for the staff of the orphanage and we see how the orphans get to know God more and more. The lie that captured orphans’ hearts gets broken and goes away. We know that their heart should become full of trust in God and their fathers could teach them God’s love. IMG_5234But they don’t have fathers and they are orphans. It sometimes become a real challenge for the kids to believe that God is truly loving and caring like every father should be.
The orphans often shout, argue or even fight because they want to draw some attention to them. IMG_5237They want to seat on our laps and feel the comfort and acceptance. Our ministry goes on and and we see how their faith is being formed. Even though the kids have disabilities they do their best to take part in games and activities. It’s interesting to hear their feedback on Bible stories we tell them or to hear them telling others what they learnt from the Bible class. IMG_5139This April we taught them such Bible stories as: “The widow’s offering”, “ The blind Bartimaeus receiving his sight” and we also taught about Christ’s sacrifice at the Calvary and the real meaning of Easter holiday.
The classes with the senior orphans were also very exciting. They are different from the junior kids as they don’t try to seat next to us or hug us as the junior ones. IMG_5074They meet us at the car and start sharing about their issues. As they are teenagers they want to have good close friends who can listen to them, pray for them or give advice. Those orphans who are to graduate and leave the orphanage often ask us how the life outside the orphanage is. They are going to leave the orphanage in 1-2 months and they will face a real life there on their own. We discussed such topics as : “Stealing”, “Conflicts”, “The triumph of Christ at the Calvary”.
We are grateful to God and those who support our ministry in prayers! We ask you to continue praying for our team so that we could grow, become more numerous and we could work with more orphans closer!
