In September: “Rudensk orphanage”

Posted: October 4, 2017 by Dobr9k in Rudensk

There has come a new academic year, and we have started the service at orphanage school in Rudensk. During summer, younger children have strongly grown up, and graduates left school and went to study to other cities. At the meetings there were many new children with whom we are going to meet during this year. This academic year we have decided to begin with stories about people from the Old Testament. Lessons were very practical because the characters in stories were very bright.
Just at the beginning we have told children Cain and Abel’s story. This time we considered more deeply the character of Abel who has lived the most usual, not very special and short life, at first sight. But, despite of it Abel became the winner because he lost terrestrial, but he has got eternal life with God as he was always faithful to the Heavenly Father. The following hero was Noah. We told about his obedience and God’s promise not to destroy the earth by flood ever. Noah was very obedient to God in spite of the fact that the whole world laughed at him. His firmness and patience became a good example for children.
We had three meetings dedicated to Abraham! We told about how he had obeyed God and how God had blessed him. Children tried to imagine the number of stars in the sky, and then imagined that they can receive all these blessings of Abraham in Christ.
Besides we told a story about fidelity and devotion of Abraham when he had, perhaps, the most difficult choice in his life … “God will discern – God said when Isaak had been saved “. God will discern – it was our advice to children for the next week and for all life!
Younger children have meetings separate from older children. The main hero of this month was a shepherd David who had a kind heart. He could win not only a furious lion and a bear, but also and Goliath who kept the people in God’s awe for a long time. He could do this because he was faithful and he trusted to God!
We are very glad that we have had an opportunity to communicate with children this month. Thanks to all who care for our service prayerfully and financially! The Lord will bless you!
