In January: ”Belinichy orphanage”

Posted: February 5, 2017 by Dobr9k in Belinichy

Love to one’s blood children is an undeserved gift from God. To love someone else’s child is a fruit of a humble but strong spirit grown by the long-suffering and hope in Him.img_9995 And God gives such love to the orphan children. Whatever it may sound like I am very happy that I can serve and love these small disobedient children who are in need of love.img_0148
Our trips to the Belynichy orphanage this month started with the Christmas performance in the end of which all kids received presents and surely were happy.

Will I have enough strengths, patience and wisdom to prove true love despite impudence and disobedience? I am learning this very kind of love during every meeting with the kids.img_0184
We had one more meeting with the theme “The History of Joseph” “The betrayal of brothers”. Family is the first small world to which each of us comes. Only after growing up and getting strong in it, having learnt the main and basic lessons and rules can a man with bravery and strength step into the big world full of dangers and impendences, tasks and trials. Can we tear the family out of our lives? Can we fill its place with anything else? And our country alone has tens of thousands children who turned out to be in this emptiness.
