In March: “Smilovichi orphanage”

Posted: March 30, 2019 by Dobr9k in Smilovichi

Hello, dear friends!
We are glad to tell you how a month of trips to the Smilovichsky orphanage passed! This month there were a lot of interesting meetings with the children. Now there are few of them, so each meeting we had a great opportunity to talk with them on different topics, and discuss examples on these topics that we can find in the pages of the Bible.
At the first meeting we were talking about how important it is to be a reliable person. In order to consider the benefits of reliability, we looked at the life of Joseph. While the children haven’t grown yet, we wanted to show them that the decisions they make can affect on their whole life.
In continuation of this thought, a week later, we were talking on the topic of devotion. The heroes for this theme were Naomi, Ruth, and Orpah. At this meeting, we discussed how we should communicate with our friends and family. After all, so often we want to get something, not considering our relations with loved ones, and we can offend them.
Since there were few children at our meetings, we were able not only to communicate a little closer, but also to play games in which we could compete on who would stand more on one leg, who would be able to keep the ball from pin-pong in the air longer , and other entertaining tasks.
We also had the opportunity to engage in creative work with the children. Doing something by yourself is always interesting. When we are engaged in creativity with the children, they can see how we communicate with each other and with them. And through our actions, words and decisions, children can see other relationships – the relationship between us and God. In addition, at these meetings we usually talk about what the children are worried about and answer their questions. Such communication is unusual, because the children can get new answers to their concerns.
At the last meeting we talked about our talents, opportunities, and how they can be applied to society. Using the example of building the Tabernacle, the children saw that even regular work can be useful. Continuing this topic, we learned that some of them would like to become builders or sellers, but there were also those who said that they have not yet decided who they wanted to become. Thanks to this, they were able to think about their future.
This month has come to an end, and we are very pleased that we can share our results with you. Thanks to all who follow our ministry and support it!

    Приветствую вас, дорогие друзья!
    Очень рад слышать что вы продолжаете еженедельно, отвественно, добросовестно, долготерпеливо служить в Смиловическом приюте! Слава Богу! Вы – молодцы!
    Очень рад слышать что в приюте сейчас меньше детей. Чем меньше детей попадают в приют, из-за того что ситуации в семьях становиться лучше, тем лучше для детей. Слава Богу!
    Очень рад что поэтому вы смогли уделить больше времени, внимания и заботы каждому ребёнку! Каждый ребёнок имел возможность задавать вам волнующие их вопросы и получать на них ваши ответы. Слава Богу!
    Молюсь чтобы Господь Иисус Христос продолжать вас хранить, благословлять и наполнять вас Своей Родостью!
