In May: “Rudensk orphanage”

Posted: May 31, 2016 by Dobr9k in Rudensk

In May we had many memorable meetings with kids from the Rudensk orphanage. The month begun with the wIMG_5496onderful holiday: Passover. All orphans and educators could hear once again about great act of bravery of Christ at The Calvary. The meaning of the holiday was communicated to the kids in a theatrical play. After the play kids had an opportunity to talk with each actor. Probably, somebody even got a new friend!IMG_5556

At other our meetings we talked with children about fears and explained how God advices us to fight them. We found out that the children had many fears which follow them from their early childhood. And this is not surprising because the closest people to them – their parents – abandoned them. On top of that some orphans had been victims of violence, humiliation and insults from their parents. Therefore almost everIMG_5531y orphan has a fear to remain forever alone, to be abandoned and to be betrayed again.

Also we had an opportunity to organize for the kids a trip to a professional circus. It was a bright and joyful time because some of the children were in circus for the first time. Fanny clowns, acrobats and a multitude of various animals entIMG_5544ertain kids with their talents, abilities and skills. We are very thankful to those who helped us organize this trip! Children were satisfied – it means we had reached the goal!

We also had a sport event. At our last meeting this month we had organize an “apple relay” that was conducted in unusual way.  The relay had as sport assignments as creative assignments. MandatorIMG_5255y to all the assignments was a connection to apples. And at the end all children who participated in the relay received apples as prizes. After the relay all boys together with the man from our team went to gymnastic bars. Despite children enthusiastically performing physical exercises they were able to talk withIMG_5265 the team members on various interesting for them subjects.

School year is coming to the end. There are about 4 meetings remain with the kids in the orphanages in this school year. After that we and the kids are going to have a break for the two months until the beginning of the next school year. Therefore we want very much that our last meeting with the kids would be unforgettable for them and that the kids would not forget about God during the summer break! We would be thankful to everyone who would pray about this!
