In September: ”Belinichy orphanage”

Posted: October 1, 2016 by Dobr9k in Belinichy

So here we come again starting our ministry for orphans! So many positive emotions, happy smiles on children’s faces and the desire to share with you what we’ve done during the summer. That’s how we can describe September!img_9182
At the moment there are more little kids in Belynichie boarding-school. img_9429There are lots of new kids who we already got to know. We decided to divide them in 3 groups because their knowledge and the development is different. We hope that it will help to get to know more kids and there will be more chances to build strong relationships with them.
We’ve already done bible lessons based on stories from Old Testament in groups with the little ones. Creation of the world, the sin of Adam and Eve, story about Cain and Abel and of course – Noah’s arch. May be it seems that these are very simple examples, but they show how great and powerful our God is!img_9347
img_9411Older children have “the month of friendship” right now. We’ve chosen a friendship topic for our meetings with them. This topic is of current interest for secondary school students. Unfortunately, many of the children that age picture this term incorrectly. So we talked about faithfulness in friendship, showing love in friendship and why we need friends. At one of the meeting we did a lot of sport’s activities so that little kids could participate as well. img_9184It was great to see that children now accept not only their successes , but also their defeats! img_9120Both teams got consolation prizes at the end of competitions.
It is also amazing to feel how children trust you and at the end of every meeting they look for a chance to talk to you one to one, to tell you about their thoughts and worries, disappointments, and sometimes big and small joys.
When we come home after a regular visit we feel physically exhausted but at the same time we are so delighted that we spent such a great time with children! Praise God for such an amazing time!
