In May: “Smilovichi orphanage”

Posted: May 27, 2018 by Dobr9k in Smilovichi

Children are always happy to see us.
It happens that the relationship in the orphanage between the children is very complicated. Because many of them want at least somehow to be above the rest, and the more so, no one likes when they are humiliated. Maybe this is not noticeable at the first acquaintance with the children, but sometimes, when you often communicate with them, you can see how secretly they “show where your place”, if someone tried to do what they couldn’t.
To some extent, our visits are a distraction from finding out the relationship between each other and the opportunity to see another world – a world full of love and grace. On our meetings you can be one team for an hour, without resenting each other.
Interesting biblical stories can help us to become a team.
This month, the children listened to stories about Joseph. For a few weeks the children was listening stories, and, with the help of pictures, became participants in the events that were in the life of Joseph. They faced the dislike that Joseph felt, with the betrayal of the brothers, tired to feel the emotions of Joseph, who were sold into slavery. We learned what Patifar’s wife made to Joseph, how he was feeling in prison, and how he became the second after Pharaoh.
But the most important thing is that the children listened that Joseph trusted God in all his difficulties. We listened to how he evaluated his actions not only with moral criteria, but also with God’s criteria. This allowed Joseph to live a life with God. And we told this to the children.
In addition, this month we had a meeting in which children made crafts with their own hands, which were useful for them (the guys did photo frames), and well-remembered about our meetings.
Thanks to everyone who is interested in our service, and thanks to all who support us!
