In June: “Smilovichi orphanage”

Posted: July 12, 2016 by Dobr9k in Smilovichi

The latest meetings with the kids of the Smilovichskiy orphanage were filled with especially warm and friendly atmosphere. The long-awaited summer has finally come and the holidays began so the kids had an especially good mood. We had an oppurtimage-0.02.01.2c03e42352c98e4dc5c38ea487a4d7db94aea1d68662079db5082429967a8e0d-Vunity to speak with them on suimage-0.02.01.770728b195158a789a4cd05cbc28ea417bc328c769705d50e1dbd1b2eef6528a-Vch topics as “sin” and “what should I do with sin?”. We wanted so much to let them know that it is the sin that distorts people’s lives and makes them angry and unhappy. But there is a way out because God gives the forgiveness and hope to everyone who invites Him to his heart.

Of course during every meeting the kids had an opportunity to play different games outside and indoors, to learn new songs and also to communicate with one another and one on one with our team members. One of the meetings was totally dedicated to art. As our kids are of different age, our art leader Alla prepared various tasks for their choice. As it turned out even this small opportunity to chose a handicraft themselves significantly raises their self-esteem and lets them feel their significance!

Our last meeting was image-0.02.01.4b50ece8bcc0c03eb9e928f9c3e4f44da07ce6556e73fb356fb157d497457963-Vdedicated to the theme “Friendship”. We wanted very much to teach the kids to appreciate friendship, to value and limage-0.02.01.155145cab3797f4146e2fc1bebd91dee8415b7e654fd8eb41d649804716ed72e-Vove their friends whom they have. By the way a lot of them mafe friends here in the orphanage. But there are things that do not depend on the kids.

In the end of July they all were sent to different places: some of them got in their biological family, some of them got in a foster family, some were sent to live in an orphanage, and some of them we will see in September when the holidays are over.

Most of all now we hope that the Buble studies which tool plaxe thoughout the year will remain in the kids’ memory

And we hope that each of them will make a right decision in his life. We do not want them to repeat the mistakes of thier parents!
