In June: “Smilovichi orphanage”

Posted: June 30, 2017 by Dobr9k in Smilovichi

Summer has begun, and with summer began last visits to boarding schools this academic year. We continue talking with guys from Smilovichi orphanage, and speaking with them about different interesting and useful topics.
This month, we told the children the story of Gideon, Job, and showed the puppet show.
The story of Gideon showed the children that God can even through a few people show His glory and save His people. It is very important to rely not on ourselves, but on the strength of our Lord. Gideon was able to defeat the army of other nations that outnumbered at hundreds of times, and we will be able to cope with the problems of our lives, thanks to the fact that we trust in God.
It was very interesting to tell the children the story of Job. Each of them lost something important in this life – that’s why they ended up in a boarding school. Job lost everything – his wealth, his children, and even his health. But he remained faithful to God. Many in this life believe that health is the most important. But the history of Job shows that there is a God who not only holds every man in his hands, but also the entire universe. He thought out everything, and knows everything. He knows even that about what modern scientists are doing only theoretical assumptions. Therefore, Job, and every child is in God’s caring hands, and He worries about every person.
This is a story with a happy ending – God took care of Job and multiplied his wealth twice.
At the end of the season of our visits we had invited a puppet theater. Guys liked very much this great staged production. During the story that the dolls showed, children learned that neither wealth, nor proper behavior, nor that their parents believed in God – none of this would help them get to God. Only personal faith in Jesus Christ is the key that opens the door to the heavenly kingdom.
Now most of children start visiting different camps, so we have a break in the service before the beginning of the school year. We are very glad that we can influence children’s lives! May God bless all who are not indifferent to the orphans of Belarus! Thank you for your spiritual and financial support!
