In October: “Smilovichi orphanage”

Posted: October 31, 2018 by Dobr9k in Smilovichi

Have you ever wondered to see the fruits that God grows in the hearts of people? We want to tell you about the Smilovichi orphanage, which we have been visiting this month. We had several visits where we could see the changes in the hearts of the children.
This month there was an unusual situation – the children approached us and asked the Bible, because they haven’t had their own. After some time, when we phoned to the teachers, we were told that the children had already read dozens of pages in their Bibles. I want to give praise to God for opening children’s hearts for wanting to know him more. In addition, this month we talked about why we need a church. We showed and told the children that God wants to communicate with them and that they can find fellowship with believers in the church and listen to the Word of God.
One of the topics of our meeting was obedience. At the beginning there was a game in which the children had to collect their paper cards of a special color. But there were another cards that were not necessary to collect with a lot of interesting things. Therefore, the children had to make decisions about whether they obey the rules of the game or not. It is noteworthy that there were those who obeyed, as well as those who showed disobedience. And after such an example, we began to talk with the children about what benefits we have in life, if we show obedience to our teachers, and most importantly – obedience to God. A week later we discussed the topic of Mercy and Compassion on the example of the story of the Good Samaritan. This simple story was an example of the fact that we should have these qualities in our life. After all, God is compassionate and merciful to us. We also talked about such a feeling as envy. Told some examples about the pros and cons of this emotion. After that we decided to get rid of envy in our life.
In general, the month in the Smilovichi orphanage turned out to be quite eventful. We are very glad that we can attend Him, and even more be joyful because God is working in this orphanage. Therefore, we hope that God can convey this joy to you – to everyone who is not indifferent to the orphans of Belarus and everyone who helps us sow God’s word in the lives of the children.
