In October: “Rudensk orphanage”

Posted: October 30, 2016 by Dobr9k in Rudensk

In spite of grey and cold October our visits of this orphanage became even more joyful and bright. We could eventually build img_9454close relationships with new comers, who had just begun to attend our meetings! Praise the Lord! This year the make-up of the orphans has changed very much because many graduates left the orphanage. img_9543The teenagers that started to come to us are more difficult to work with mostly because of their mental and physical disabilities. At the beginning it was a little bit hard to work with them but God has done wonderful things opening children’s hearts to His Word and giving wisdom to the people from our team who prepare Bible lessons.
This month we continued speaking about friendship: ‘Friendship in action’, ‘Not like others’, ‘How to go through the pain from loss’. Each of the topics was urgent for the orphans. img_20161012_192720For almost each of them was labeled as ‘not like others’ or a ‘black’ sheep or lost friends because of different reasons, and the main problem is that a few of them understand how to be a friend in practice not in word only even if they would like to be such friends. img_9531That’s why we devoted three month to the topic of ‘Friendship’. Besides common meetings we arranged boys’ and girls’ time. The girls had a private talk about the purpose of women. They also talked about God’s will for women, their self-acceptance and self-improvement. The boys-teenagers talked about the purpose of men. They talked a lot about the inner core of a man, his leadership and importance of working not only on appearance but the heart.
We believe and hope that we didn’t waste this time. We hope that the kids will be able to use this knowledge in practice! God bless them in this!
