In April: “Vileyka orphanage”

Posted: May 5, 2017 by Dobr9k in Vileyka

Our April trips to school were full of Easter mood and spring renewal, even in relations with children.
Risen and alive Christ is the only condition you need to serve the Lord and help Him grow His kingdom on the earth.
This year was a special year in orphan ‘s ministry in many ways. After Pasha’s tragic death, the team had an important goal – to win kids’ respect and trust. So great to know that many kids are becoming closer to the team, they always look forward to them coming, they send texts, ring during the week and ask questions after our themed talks. One Friday evening we were asked by the administration of the school to take part in sports together with kids. We all were devided into two teams and had to do different activities with sport equipment. Our participation encouraged kids to be more active, to support each other and to be actually interested in what’s happening. And we were once again reassured of the importance of the power of encouraging words for kids. It’s so important to believe in children and to always remind them about it. Those who were bored were running even faster when they heard their names and the support of the team. God is never tired of supporting us.
I also would like to share my impressions about our meeting with teenagers on the 14th April. The time when we celebrated Belarusian version of Jewish Easter. There was different food on the table that every Jew would have on his table for Easter, and kids were showed and explained why it was so spiritualy important to have every dish that was there. Thanks to exciting comparisons and our
personal experience on trying those dishes before we won children’s attention and were able to share about the true freedom from sin and horrible consequences of our separation from God.
Now most kids understood the greeting ‘Chris is risen!’ and all the treats we had made our evening atmosphere more festive.
On the 21st April kid’s old friend Dima came to visit and share the eternal truth of Christ’s resurrection. They listened to him with pleasure. Dima always tells stories so that children would understand them, he prepares pictures or smth else that would make the story exciting.
Children came up with important conclusions. By the way many of them are graduating from school this year and are about to take a serious decision on where to go and study next.
And our team is preparing for celebration with them.
We are glad that despite the weather and not so nice spring, children are looking forward to us coming and they understand what Bible teaches us and that Christian views are worth their attention.
