In February: “Rudensk orphanage”

Posted: March 3, 2017 by Dobr9k in Rudensk

February is the month of changes! Thank you if you pray for the ministry for orphans in our country! img_0596The main progress is that after a period of time we are allowed to work with little kids again. We had this issue for a few years. It was okay to visit older kids and teenagers, but not allowed to see little kids. img_0585We had problems in preparing a program for this ministry. When graduates were leaving school, little kids were getting older and started to come to our meetings. We were happy to meet them, but those kids didn’t know a thing about God and His Word. We prayed a lot about getting a permission to see little kids.
And God heard our prayers! Now we can work with these kids and moreover teachers and mentors themselves are eager to help us in any way.
img_0399Children are quite clever and witty, even though they had different diagnoses. They are good at remembering Bible stories and when we come next time, they canimg_0590 recall the stories from previous meetings. This month they have heard about the creation of the world, Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah and the Arch.
We continue the ministry with teenagers too. One of the urgent problems is early pregnancy and falling in love, as boys and girls often confuse what real love and falling in love are. We can already see the consequences of that: the girls who have recently finished school are already pregnant from those who had just played with them and now left them alone. Hatred, blaming, scoffing – a whole bunch of things were awaiting them. img_0485That is why we talked about it a lot this month. img_0421We said that every decision also starts with a thought about how important it is to stop on time. We also talked about how important it is to appreciate those people, who try to teach us something and in general appreciate everything that we have today.
We continue to pray that our ministry will go on and will influence the lives of orphans. We pray that orphans will not give life to new orphans, but instead that their kids will grow in healthy families. It all starts from school! Praise be to god that His Word is being spread and bears fruit. We believe as Paul said: I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. We trust in the Lord, Who can make big changes even in a stony heart!
