In March: “Smilovichi orphanage”

Posted: March 31, 2017 by Dobr9k in Smilovichi

Here comes an end to the first Spring month, But the truth is it hasn’t felt like spring yet because it’s still cold, It feels like autumn. But even during these cold days we can visit our beloved children. This month we had a lot of interesting things happening, we have had the following bible lessons “Wise king Solomon”, “Healing of Naaman”, “Daniel and his friends”. At the moment there are 12 kids at the children’s home of different ages. Despite the fact that it’s not so many of them there comparing to the  orphanages we visit, we have to work hard while preparing for each meeting because we want it to be interesting for the older kids and the younger ones! Most of all I am impressed when it comes to the one on one talks with the kids because each one of them has their own story. Of course we spend a lot of time playing with them, doing creative things, learning and singing together some happy songs. But it’s in the conversations that those kids open up more than anything. Because kids in the children’s home are constantly changing we don’t always have a possibility to give them as much time as we would like to. So because of that sometimes we just want to come and give them an opportunity to talk, tell us how they got to the children’s home, tell us about the way things are at school, how they meet new people and build relationships with fellow kids at school. Of course when we have a chance we try to introduce them to God who gives meaning to our lives and gives us strength to forgive. They expect some advice from us, support and even our opinion on when it comes to them doing the right or the wrong thing in different situations. It makes us happy that these kids don’t just listen to us but they are trying to do good, they are trying not to offend each other and listen to their teachers. Yes, it doesn’t always work to be obedient, they are not always in good relationships with each other. But their whole life is still ahead of them. Our dream is that their lives will be filled with meaning, that the pain that they experienced in their childhood will die down as soon as possible and that they will never make mistakes that their parents have made! We believe that God can do it!
