In November: “Vileyka orphanage”

Posted: December 6, 2017 by Dobr9k in Vileyka

Every Friday, the team of Christian volunteers join together to serve orphans in Vileika.
We happily spend time with them, sharing yours experience, knowledge and skills. Some of them learn to cook, others are engaged in training sports games, others do something with their own hands .And of course we talk with them about the most relevant topics.About God. Each meeting leaves an indelible impression both for the children and for the team.
When leaving, we do not leave children waiting for the next meeting. We exchange contacts and correspond in social networks, whenever possible we call each other. Having this kind of communication, we build real relationships with the children who need it so much. To some extent we become for them moms and dads, good friends who are always in a hurry to help.
And every time we see the fruits of our ministry in children, we rejoice and even more try to be useful to each of them.
In November, the International Students Day was celebrated. And for the four participants of the ministry, November became an educational. From November 17 to 19, 2017, we took part in the training of mentors. During the training, emphasis was placed on the individual approach to each child, the psychological and age-specific features of children who were admitted to the orphanage were identified. We took part in storylined games, non-standard situations, discussions. Training has helped to take a fresh look at the problem of orphanhood and the contribution that we can make to their lives. One of the bright and memorable events of this month were two culinary meetings, which were held separately for girls and separately for boys. The boys not only learned to cook, but also they had the opportunity to meet new people and communicate with each other and our team in a new atmosphere. At the meetings Misha Davydov talked about the trials he had to go through in his life, and through which he approached God. This month, high school students also had the opportunity to watch the film “Love of Hosea”. The teenagers was very impressed by the film. Many even cried while watching it. Let’s hope that through this film the children could understand and feel how much God loves people and how much God has forgiven them for many centuries!
