In April: “Rudensk orphanage”

Posted: May 3, 2019 by Dobr9k in Rudensk

In April, fortunately I have visited the younger and older children.  We were playing games together, which are mainly aimed at developing attention and rallying their group.  Younger children are very happy every time meeting with us.  This month we talked a lot with them about how important it is to be faithful to your business, friends, God.  We gave the example of Joseph and how his loyalty to God changed his life for the better.

  Every meeting with younger children we begin and end with a prayer.  Sometimes some children during the prayer start to make noise and run around the room.  This suggests that many more efforts and prayers are needed for their salvation and for their lives to change.  I am glad that sometimes our tutor is with us and I hope that the Bible lessons also have a positive effect on tutor.

There were also meetings with the older children, where I conducted games.  Most of all, I remember how Katya told them a story about “Ten Lepers” and shared a story from her personal life, told how difficult it is to live in society when you are not accepted.  And we talked about how important it is to be grateful.  These stories are well remembered by the children.  I was pleased that during the prayer they held their hands with me for the first time, and several children were praying.  During the prayer, they sincerely call God the Father, share their experiences, difficulties, thanks.  And it makes me happy that there is a change for the better, but there are still a lot of problems for the children that need to be solved with God’s help.

The month ended with a bright and joyful event – Easter!  We invited a team with a puppet show to reach even more children and tell them about the true meaning of this holiday.  At the end of the performance, all the children received their gifts, which were a small reminder of the fact that God also offers His salvation as a gift!
